Ego E Cig Instructions
How to Use A Vape Pen
If you’re new to vaping or haven’t tried a vape pen style kit before, these ego e-cig instructions should help you get started.
1. Charge Your Battery
To use an ego vape pen, you’ll first need to charge the battery. To do this, screw the battery part onto the included USB charger. You can then plug this into a USB port on your computer or a mains adapter with no more than 1A/5V output.
You will notice the blue light on the battery’s button will flash 3 times and the small LED on the charger will go red or green, depending on the level of charge in your battery. If it goes red, leave your battery to charge checking it every 30 minutes or so until the charger light goes green. If the LED stays green as soon as you plug it in, good news; your battery is fully charged and your ready to vape!
Make sure to read our battery safety information and never leave any type of rechargeable battery on charge for longer than necessary.
Your vape pen battery has a locking function so that it can’t be activated by accident when not in use. To lock and unlock your battery, press the button 5 times in quick succession. The button LED will flash 3 times to show it has been activated/deactivated. If your battery isn’t working straight out of the box, this is usually the reason.
2. Fill the Clearomizer
Once your battery is charged, you will want to fill the clearomizer with your e liquid. We’ve got loads of amazing e liquid flavours to choose from to suit all tastes. So, get your flavour of choice to hand and start by unscrewing the metal section at the bottom of the clearomizer. You will see that this section has the coil screwed into it. Ensure that this is screwed tightly into the base. The image on the right shows the three main parts of the clearomizer; the tank, coil and base.
Holding the tank upside-down, carefully squeeze your e-liquid in, aiming it down the side. Make sure not to get your juice into the metal tube that runs down the middle of the tank (the ‘chimney’). If you get liquid in here you’ll probably end up with it in your mouth (this is not dangerous but can be a little unpleasant). Also be careful to only fill the tank enough that it doesn’t go over the level of the top of the chimney.
Note: This style of e cigarette is suitable for use with e-liquids with at least 50% PG content. All the e-liquids in our 50/50 range contain a 50PG/50VG ratio and are perfect for use with this kit. Please click here for more information on e liquid ingredients.
3. Prime the Coil
Once you’ve filled the tank, screw the metal base back on and leave it to sit (upright) for a few minutes. This is calling ‘priming’ the coil and is important as it allows the coil to soak up your juice. If you vape too soon after filling it you could burn out the coil; it will taste horrible and you’ll have to throw it away and use another one. Please note that you only need to ‘prime’ a coil before you use it for the first time.
Once you’re clearomizer is filled and you have left the tank to stand for a few minutes, screw it back onto your battery and you’re ready to go!
You can read more about filling your tank and changing your coils in our guide to using the CE5-S Clearomizer.
4. Get Vaping!
The final step in our ego e cig instructions is simply to enjoy your new vape kit!
To vape, put the mouthpiece in your mouth and inhale gently for a few seconds whilst holding down the button on the battery. You may hear a few pops and crackles – this is perfectly normal and is just the liquid heating up. You should get a nice flow of delicious tasting vapour!
Make sure to always keep your tank topped up and don’t let the e-liquid level get too low.
