Vaping can be a fun, stress-relieving way to smoke without bringing so many toxic chemicals into your body. However, there are many components to vaporizers, which may make your first filling experience confusing. Whether your vaporizer is top-fill or bottom-fill, you’ll need to take your vaporizer apart. Put a few drops of e-liquid directly onto the coil, fill up your tank, and then you’re ready to vape.
About This Article
If you need to fill your top-fill vape, start by unscrewing the airflow base at the bottom of the vaporizer and pulling out the coil. Next, prep the coil by dropping 1 drop of e-liquid onto each cotton hole located on the coil. Then, unscrew the top connector from the tank and use the dropper to fill the tank up to the indicated line with e-liquid. Once you’ve filled up the tank, screw the top connector and mouthpiece back on. Then, finish reassembling your vaporizer by putting the coil back in and screwing on the base. Once it’s fully assembled, wait 2-3 minutes for the coil to saturate with liquid before enjoying your vape! For tips on filling a bottom-fill vaporizer, read on!How to Fill a Vape.

How to Refill a Vaporiser with E-Liquid
If you’ve just gotten into vaping, it can seem as though there is so much to learn. What does VG/PG mean? Which is the right strength for you? What the hell does sub-ohm mean? Making your way though the jungle of jargon can be a nightmare – luckily, Vape Mountain pokes above the canopy to give you the straight facts. First thing is first – how do you even refill an e-cigarette?
Know Your Vaporiser
Unfortunately, just as there are a wide variety of different vaporisers there are many different ways to refill them. Some fill from the top, some fill from the bottom but in essence the process is the same. For the purpose of our guide, we are using a bottom filling vape and some unidentified mystery liquid:
As you can see, we’ve plucked for a simple, everyday Vape Pen for our demonstration. After all, if you’re already using some elaborate Vape Mod, the chances are that you know how to fill it! The Vape Pen is where most people start with vaping so it’s going to be the place where we start too.
Step One: Dismantle Your Vape
Most vaporisers are comprised of two or three different components. The e-cig that we are using has three different parts: the clearomiser and mouthpiece, the battery, and the atomiser. It is necessary to separate these three parts in order to refill the vaporiser and this can be done by simply unscrewing the parts from one another.
It might go without saying but always be careful when you are taking your vape pen apart – e-liquid is an irritant to skin and it is imperative to avoid contact with liquid whenever possible. Once you have (carefully) taken apart your device, you should be left with something like below and this means that you are ready to move on to the next step of vaping!

Step Two: Extracting Your Liquid
Push down and twist
The vast majority of e-liquid bottles are designed with child-proof caps – unfortunately, this has the accidental side-effect of making them resistant to quite a few adults too! The bottles are designed to open like medicine bottles; push the lid down and then turn and you should feel the bottle starting to open.
Full pipette of e-liquid
Once the lid has been unscrewed, you will find a dropper attached to the bottom that is used to refill your tank. Simply squeeze the rubber top of the dropper until the pipette is full of e-liquid.
Step Three: Refilling the Clearomiser
Filling the tank
Once you have got a full dropper of e-liquid, you can begin to fill your clearomiser or tank. We’re using a bottom fill tank, but the process is pretty much identical with a top filling tank as well. Using the dropper, carefully drip the e-juice down the side of your vaporiser. It is important to avoid the mouthpiece hole, as this will simply lead to wasted e-liquid (and that’s a real heartbreaker).
Step Four: Putting it All Back Together
After your tank is full to capacity, you can reassemble your device by reversing the dismantling process. Be careful to make sure that all of your components are properly tightened as not doing this can mean leakage of your precious e-juice.

Step Five: Vape!
Once your e-liquid is in and your vaporiser is fully reassembled, you’re ready to go! It doesn’t matter what flavour you’re using, your vaporiser is ready to go – simply press the button and take a drag.
