3 Common Causes of E-Liquid Clog in Mod Pod Systems

Mod pod systems have made it easier for vapers of all experience levels to enjoy their e-liquids in a more convenient way. They offer an experience that is perfect for those who want things hassle-free, as you can pick one up and use it easily without having to learn the more complex aspects of vaping. It is a fantastic option for first-timers and those who are constantly on the go. 

However, as with any device, these vapes can experience problems. One of the most common problems that occur in mod pod systems is jamming. A jammed cartridge will prevent you from drawing from your system, blocking you from your e-liquid fix. 

As such, we have written this list of things that can cause jammed pod cartridges as well as what you can do to prevent and fix them. With no further ado, here they are:

1. Debris in the mouth holes
Keeping your pod system in a pocket or bag when you’re not using it might let dust and other debris collect in the mouth holes. With enough time, this may cause a clog. As such, it is important to keep your pod secure. Let it sit on a table or shelf, and keep in a container if you’re taking it with you. 

This is also easily fixed by locating the airholes on the base of the pod cartridge and blowing gently into them. This might dislodge and blow the debris right out. If that doesn’t work, carefully using a pointy object like a safety pin might do the trick. 

2. A leaking pod cartridge
This is not an uncommon thing, but pod cartridge leakages can be annoying. Not only is it a waste of e-liquid, but it can also end up making a mess in your belongings. Not only that, but they can cause clogs that harden over time. When you refill your pod, make sure you close the port properly. It is also ill-advised to fill past the maximum fill line. This is a sure way to get a leak. 

If you notice that your pod system sometimes becomes sticky, it might be a sign of a leak. If the pod’s cartridges are tightly sealed, it might be the sign of other damage—a sign that your entire system needs replacing. 

3. Faulty cartridges
Once in a while, you will receive a faulty cartridge. If it keeps clogging no matter what you do, and regardless of what you do to prevent it, then there might be something wrong with the structure inside the cartridge. 
As such, it is important to buy cartridges from the same manufacturer. This will prevent your mod pod system from being damaged. If you did buy from the same manufacturer, maybe all it needs is a replacement. 

Final thoughts
Whatever level of experience you might have as a vaper, it is important to always try for the most painless and hassle-free experience you can. This means keeping your mod pod system secure and clean, preventing leakage, and buying only from the manufacturer. Not only could you save precious e-liquids, but you can save money trying to replace or repair your system.
