Dropping a disposable vape in water can damage its internal components and battery. It may also dilute the e-liquid, affecting flavour and performance.
Steps to Take:
- Turn off the device immediately.
- Shake out any excess water gently.
- Dry using uncooked rice or silica gel packets for 24-48 hours.
- Inspect for damage before reuse. If unsure, it’s safer to replace it.
- Avoid charging a wet vape, as it’s risky.
- If in doubt, replace the device for safety.
However, if your vape is completely soaked in water, it is recommended that you replace it with a new one because a fully soaked vape cannot be repaired. There are some risks involved.
