Using a pen vaporizer can be extremely convenient, regardless if you’re using an herb vape pen or a wax pen vaporizer, using a portable handheld device has its own unique advantages. However, like most modern-day tech, pen-style vaporizers require a little touch of maintenance to prolong its overall lifespan and to perpetuate the optimum vaping experience.
In this unofficial guide, we’ll talk about how to clean and maintain the Puffco Plus wax pen vaporizer. This advanced wax pen vaporizer is dubbed as the world’s first ever pocket e-nail. Puffco was born out of necessity when a man named Roger Voladarsky -- now the CEO of Puffco -- “decided he wanted more than what the industry standard could provide.” Puffco vaporizers are known for their intuitive and innovative design, wax pen vaporizers that give high emphasis on functionality and performance. Puffco devices are Voladarsky’s response to the industry standard as he combined the “disciplines of design, technology, and engineering” to create the perfect platform for wax concentrate consumption. Upon using their devices, you will see that they’re designed and engineered to provide its users with the best wax concentrate experience. Something you never knew you wanted, let alone needed.
Their flagship device, the Puffco Plus vaporizer is the embodiment of Puffco’s vision. A coil-less wax pen vaporizer equipped with ceramic components, arguably the best component to use as a medium of heat when consuming wax concentrates. Ceramic has been utilized in most wax pen vaporizers and even portable and desktop wax units. Its inert nature gives ceramic its attribute to withstand high-temperature levels, this means it can disperse heat evenly, consistently, and in a stable manner that the increase and decrease in temperature are gradually felt and distributed amongst your waxy oil concentrates. It also means that your materials will be heated without getting to the point of combustion. Unlike traditional wax pen vaporizers, the Puffco Plus uses medical and food-grade ceramic components to ensure that it will safely and effectively vaporize your wax concentrates without affecting its distinct flavor profile. Ceramic helps the Puffco Plus by faithfully preserving your materials’ unique flavor notes as well as its natural aroma and most sought after potency. Ceramic is best for flavor retention since ceramic is porous in nature, its microscopic crevices help it absorb the wax concentrates as it heats up resulting in clouds that have better taste and fuller flavors.
Apart from amplifying the effects and improving the overall payoff of your materials and allowing your senses to consciously recognize and perceive the efficacy of your select concentrates, ceramic plays a huge role in maintaining your Puffco Plus wax pen vaporizer. “Ceramic components feature strong abrasion resistance, high elasticity, and a tolerance for very high temperatures.” This makes cleaning the ceramic components of the Puffco Plus fairly easy. Ideally, you’d want to clean your coil-less ceramic heating element at least after a day or two or if you’re a heavy user at least after every 3 to 4 sessions to prevent material buildups. Here’s a simple step by step guide to get you started.
- Turn your Puffco Plus on and put it in sesh mode.
- Allow it to heat up for one cycle.
- Unscrew the mouthpiece from the battery.
- Use a cotton swab and lightly wipe any remaining material in the chamber.
- Repeat the steps if necessary.
Once you got to clean your chamber you might want to look at other parts that may require your attention.
The Mother of All Mouthpieces
The Puffco Plus has introduced a new revolutionary mouthpiece which combines the carb cap and the loading tool. This unprecedented innovation is geared towards providing wax concentrate consumers with unparalleled convenience. By incorporating the dab tool into the mouthpiece, one can simply and easily reload concentrates even when on-the-go. Moreover, the Puffco Plus mouthpiece creates a sealed and spirally environment that lets the air to travel in a helical manner allowing your vapors to cool down before reaching your mouth. It's amazing how such a design crammed in such a small component can affect your overall vaping experience.
Like the ceramic coils, the mouthpiece of the Puffco Plus also needs rinsing. To clean the “dart” and the mouthpiece, you have to know its layout. The dart is the integrated dab tool that’s affixed onto the mouthpiece by a small black silicone grommet. It can easily be removed for cleaning and replacement. Like the heating element, the dart is made out of ceramic. To remove it for cleaning, gently push through the top of the mouthpiece using a cotton swab and with the same cotton swab, softly wipe the dart or soak it -- the dart -- in a solution of warm water and isopropyl alcohol.
Like most ceramic nails the bottom of your ceramic chambers might darken over time especially after some heavy use. You might want to bear in mind that these chambers are self-cleaning, simply run the Puffco Plus in sesh mode without any material and hold the device upside down. This will allow any residue to run down instead of burning on the chamber. You can clean it with a cotton swab afterward though it’s not entirely necessary.
The black markings on the chamber should it leave any will not in anyway affect the performance of the Puffco Plus, it’s just normal chemical reaction.
A Polished Exterior
The Puffco Plus’ exterior is made out of gunmetal parts can simply be wiped by a cotton swab or by a slightly damp paper towel with isopropyl solution. Just rub the gunmetal components to remove any wax residue, fingerprints, or smudges your wax pen vaporizer might have accumulated over time. Once done, let the air do the rest and let your Puffco Plus wax pen vaporizer dry in just a few seconds. I strongly suggest to perform another burn-off or place the Puffco Plus in sesh mode for another cycle once you’re done the cleaning to ensure that you burn out the remains of your cleaning solution should there be any.
Keeping your vaporizer clean not only makes it look good but it also promotes healthy vaping habits. You don't want to put your lips on a dirty mouthpiece right? It’s like kissing dirt, so make cleaning your Puffco Plus wax pen vaporizer a habit and keep your vaporizer working like it just came out of the box.
