How To Clean & Maintain CE4 Clearomizers
What is a CE4 Clearomizer?
A CE4 Clearomizer is one of the most simple to use vape tanks available. Although these types of vape tank are now quite outdated, they are still used and preferred by many due to their simplicity. They consist of a plastic refillable tank with an integrated coil. The coil utilises cotton wicks within the tank to soak up the e-liquid inside. They are designed for use with ego type vape devices, but have what is known as a '510' connection and can be used with other devices with this same connection.
These clearomizers are designed to be disposable. Once the flavour of the vapour produced by the clearomizer deteriorates, you simply throw it away and replace with a new one.
How Long Does a CE4 Clearomizer Last?
You can expect a CE4 Clearomizer to last approximately 2-3 weeks. The amount of time you can use your clearomizer before it needs replacing however, does depend on how much you vape and the type of e-liquid you are using.

How to Make a CE4 Clearomizer Last Longer
Priming Your Clearomizer
Regardless of the tank you are using, you must always prime the coil before using it. This simply means allowing time for the vape juice in your tank to soak into the wicking material. If you vape too soon after filling, the cotton (or ceramic, depending on the coil type) may still be dry and it will burn when you try to vape.
Simply fill the tank of your new clearomizer, then leave it to sit for at least 10 minutes before vaping.
Cleaning Your Clearomizer
You can often make your clearomizer last longer by cleaning it. Alternatively, you may want to clean it before changing to a new vape juice flavour so that the new flavour isn’t tainted by your previous one.
To do this, remove the clearomiser from the battery and unscrew the mouthpiece (remember to keep the rubber seal safe). Put a few drops of hot (not boiling) water into the top of the tank, seal the top with your finger and shake it a few times to swill the water around and then shake the water out. Repeat this a couple of times as required.
It is best to only clean your clearomiser if you have a spare or will not need to use it for some time as you will need to leave it to dry for at least 24 hours. Leave it to dry standing upside-down on some tissue paper so that any excess water will work its way out. If your clearomiser isn’t fully dry you may find it hard to vape with as water will not vaporise as well as e-liquid will.
After cleaning, you can leave your clearomizer overnight in a sealed container of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture and speed up the drying time.
