How To Take Apart A Disposable Vape Pen

If you are going to take a disposable pen apart, I advise you not to do it in a hurry. Here the question arises, why do you need to take it apart when it’s disposable?

The reason is quite logical when disposable vape pens function improperly, you cannot return it. So you try to fix the issues on your own.  So, if you think that you can apply different techniques to fix the one, you should get a chance.

But you should understand that it is not meant for fixing and they cannot work for a long time. So, if you have to take it apart, do it very carefully.

When Should You Take The Disposable Pen Apart?

Just as the name indicates, the ultimate fate of a disposable thing in the dustbin. But if it stops working before time, you should go for fixes. It depends on variables like numbers of puffs, temperature, battery quality, and length of the draw.

Quantity of fuel is also the key factor in determining the span of this disposable product. So, if it has a large fill size, it will last long.

So, if it stops working after two to three puffs, or even without using it, it’s time to take it apart and do some fixes.

But listen, you must have some electronic knowledge as Li-ion batteries can be hazardous or not handled properly.

Let’s dive in.

How To Take Apart If a Vape Pen Gives a Burnt Taste?

A vape pen is all about flavor. But if it is not tasting well, then the reason is high-temperature. Coil type and quality also affect the taste.

Use the Torx or Allen Key to open the vape pen, but if tiny buttons pop out, you should be even more careful. Once you feel the coil is hotter than room temperature, throw the pen away.

Here I want to make it clear that Vape batteries are usually made of layered foil of a certain type of metal, but could also have a liquid energy storage mechanism. So, in this case, making a decision is easy and you can fix the issue. But if your pen has a disposable built-in Lithium power source, it becomes impossible to fix the issue.
