This article is brought to you by, providing customers with a wide range of e-rigs and gear for an enjoyable vape experience.

The KandyPens OURA e-rig was created to provide cannabis consumers with dense vapor and power-packed hits. It’s removable glass bulb attachment and eye-catching design provide a unique personal and group experience, while its ceramic atomizer keeps your material’s flavor intact.

As cannabis technology gets smarter, the need to keep high-end gear like the OURA in tip-top shape has never been higher. Luckily, the process doesn’t have to be tough. Take a look at these tips to keep your atomizer clean and ready for the big rips you crave.

1) Understand the mechanics of your atomizer

User guides aren’t just for your junk drawer. It’s especially important to read them after you’ve purchased a new e-rig atomizer. Atomizers housed in rigs like the OURA are explained in easy to understand manuals, with notes on how to use advanced features like one-touch operation as well.

Make sure that you read your e-rig user guide to get familiar with all the different settings of your rig. Know what size dab fits well within the bowl or banger, so you don’t encounter any unfortunate overflow accidents and waste precious product.

Check and see if the company that makes your atomizer offers any kind of lifetime warranty, like the one offered on the OURA. It will help you feel less panicked if something goes awry.

2) Keep concentrate cleaning supplies stocked

Ever realized you needed to clean your rig, but don’t have the supplies to do so? Keeping e-rig cleaning supplies on hand is the best way to get into the habit of cleaning your rig regularly. Make sure to keep basics like isopropyl alcohol, coarse salt and lots of cotton swabs on deck. KandyPens ISO Snap Caps contain alcohol inside of them already, making clean-up a breeze.

3) Clean your e-rig after every use

You’ve had your session and been able to revel in the effects of your favorite products. Now it’s time to clean. While cleaning your dab rig every time you use it may seem tedious, it’s the best way to keep it in good working condition.

If your atomizer is removable, like the one found in the KandyPens OURA, deep cleaning sessions are simple. Just use a cotton swab to spot-clean the atomizer after each use. While it may not be the most exciting part of your session, maintaining your vaporizer is the best way to extend the life of your rig.

4) Store your e-rig with an empty bowl and no water

If you can’t quite bring yourself to clean your e-rig each time you use it, at least make sure it is stored with an empty cup and no water in the glass components.

Your cannabis products stand a better chance at remaining fresh inside air-tight packaging, and you deserve to experience the taste and flavor of your product with each use. You also run less risk of spilling old vape water, which comes with a distinct smell that many try to avoid.

5) Prevent sticky accidents by teaching best practice to your best friends

Sharing is caring, so of course, you want your friends to use your awesome new dab rig. The chances for human error increase every time someone uses your rig without reading the instructions, so make sure that anybody seshing with your gear knows how it works.

Remind them not to exhale into the mouthpiece to prevent water from getting into the wrong parts of your rig, and teach them about any light or temperature settings that will help them use it like a pro. Smart e-rigs like the OURA feature haptic feedback and lighting effects to let you know when you can take a draw, making sessions fun and fool-proof.

6) Charge your e-rig battery after every session

Nothing ruins the excitement of a session like a dead e-rig battery. High-capacity rigs like the OURA are equipped with a 3000mAh battery and USB-C Fast-Charging to make sure you don’t ever have to wait too long for that precious first hit.

Keep your charger where you can easily find it and plug your e-rig in for a re-charge. Choosing a rig with a nice aesthetic allows it to blend in with your décor while it charges – something to consider if you’re trying to cultivate your own vape-vibe.
