A Guide on How to Remove Vape Juice from Pod


When it comes to the world of vaping, there is an abundance of ways to go about choosing preferences. For starters, pick a device suited to how you want to draw in vapour. Then, you can choose how to dispose of or reuse the vape.

Many individuals will often go the way of picking a device with a pod. Inside the pod is the required vape juice used to create the overall experience. However, there may come a time when you want to remove the e-juice inside the pod for whatever reason. You will need to follow the best practices to remove the vape juice safely and effectively.

Here is a guide on how to remove vape juice from the pod:

Determine the type of vape pod.

For those who have been vaping for extended amounts of time, you will find that removing vape juice can vary. In some cases, it may be nigh impossible. That is because some pods are made to be closed off entirely, preventing you from taking out the e-juice that is inside. If this is not the case, you should look for openings in the pod.

Do not try to force the pod open, however. Should you apply an unnecessary amount of force to it, you run the risk of breaking it. All it takes is a gentle force to open the pod so you can get to the vape juice inside it. Then, you can proceed to remove the e-juice inside of the pod with ease.

Gather your vape supplies.

Now, you can focus your attention on the parts of the pod that matter. If you choose to remove vape juice from it, you will need a few resources. Usually, it is recommended to get cleaning supplies initially. This is for situations where the vape juice inside the pod may have solidified.

Once this occurs, it will be much more difficult to heat the pod due to the composition of the vape juice. You will need some rubbing alcohol, warm water, and a couple of cotton swabs. These allow you to not only reheat the vape juice but ensure you get a cleaner pod for usage.

Separate the vape.

While many vaping devices, such as disposable vape, can be a one-and-done session, others are constructive. That means inspecting various components of the device and disassembly it is generally required. To get a good look at the status of your vape, it is recommended to fully take it apart.

Once all the essential parts, such as the tank and pod, are on their own, you will be good to go. Then, while you inspect the pod, you can also review the status of other parts. This goes a long way in detecting issues with the pod and potential problems in the tank or coil. Either way, it is always encouraged to begin the process this way!

Remove the vape juice.

Now, you can begin the easy process of taking out the vape juice from the pod it is in. Pop open the pod using your fingernail or a small, pointy object like a pen’s tip. Carefully yet firmly, use force to open up the pod and lift the cap. Once this happens, you should see the vape juice inside.

It is at this point that you can simply remove the vape juice inside in whichever way you prefer. Many individuals will often just pour what is left of their old vape juice into a new pod. If you are going this route, you should be careful not to overfill the new pod with e-juice. This could lead to several ancillary issues, such as leakages!

Replace the vape juice.

No matter how you slice it, this part of the vape juice removal process is relatively simple. However, there are some ways in which the final parts of the procedure can go awry. After taking out the vape juice inside and reinstalling the pod, look at the settings.

Your device may need to be reconfigured to match the current status of the pod that is now attached. For example, some devices may not be tuned to the new, or lack of, vape juice inside. It usually will not matter for the most part, but it never hurts to double or triple-check this part.

Vaping with a refillable pod can bring about wondrous vaping experiences. However, if you are an expert with this vaping method, it can sometimes become stagnant. Be sure to give other methods, such as a disposable vape, a shot from time to time!
