Today, tattoos represent a trend. Lots of potential customers come over not knowing what they want. They just want a tattoo – they have a brief idea of the location, but they cannot decide on a design. We have plenty of books and ideas to help you out. We can also design your idea from scratch – just give us as many details as you can.

How To Deal With Old Vapes That You Won’t Be Using Anymore?

There is hardly someone who doesn’t know what a vape is nowadays. Buying vape juice brands like candy king from reputable stores such as Eliquid depot is the best thing that you can do for yourself. Vapes have been advertised as a healthier alternative to smoking cigarettes from a long time now as it allows you to choose the nicotine level in the vape juice and it doesn’t produce any tar as well. Although it is generally accepted that it is better than cigarettes but have you ever thought is it safe to throw e-cigarettes away along with normal household waste? Keep reading this article to understand how to deal with waste vapes that are no longer in use.

How do vapes work?

Vapes generally consist of 3 main components that are-

  • Cartridge that holds the vape juice
  • Heating element
  • Battery made of lithium-ion

When you inhale through the vape, the heating element vaporizes the vape juice in the cartridge which passes through a filter and all this is powered by the battery.

Out of these 3 components, Cartridge and the lithium-ion battery needs to be properly disposed of as they can harm someone or even the environment. Although they are still better than Cigarettes as their butts are made of cellulose acetate which may take up to 12 years to biodegrade.

How to dispose of the cartridge and the battery of your e-cig?

The cartridge

Cartridges are generally thrown away once used. This can be harmful if the leftover liquid in the cartridge containing nicotine reaches the pets, wildlife or even your very own children. A lot of cartridge makers run their very own recycling programs under which they will take the old cartridges from you when they deliver new cartridges. After that, they will be cleaned and recycled into new cartridges.

If your cartridge maker doesn’t have such facility then the steps mentioned below can help you to ensure the safe disposal of cartridges.

  • Remove the filler material from the cartridge and rinse it under running water until you are sure that there is no nicotine residue left.
  • Wrap the filler material with a biodegradable material.
  • Similarly rinse the cartridge and seal it with the original plug.
  • Discard it as plastic waste.

The battery

Lithium-ion batteries cannot be simply thrown away as they can short circuit and cause a fire. They are even known to have blasted in the past if not properly disposed of. Governments around the world categorize it under electronic waste and they cannot be fully recycled. There have been incidents in the past where these batteries caused a fire in waste treatment facilities due to short circuits or minor blasts.

A lot of wholesalers, as well as electronic stores, have battery recycling programs for people under which the batteries are collected, discharged completely and then disposed of properly.

If there are no such facilities around your area, you can follow the steps mentioned below to ensure the safe disposal of the batteries.

  • Discharge the battery completely.
  • Submerge it in cold saltwater for at least 2 weeks; the container should be properly closed with a lid.
  • Discard them by wrapping them in newspapers.

These steps will help in safe disposal and safe environment.
