Sometimes you can take a drag and the opposite of auto-firing happens when we use lana vape


If you’ve been using a lana disposable device for a while, the battery has probably gone. Alternatively, you may have used up all the e-liquid.


However, if it is a new vape device, the battery should not be dead, and you should still have e-liquid in the pod.




If it’s a new device, it’s worth taking a look to see if there is any fluff or debris blocking up the mouthpiece.


Also make sure you have removed any stickers from the bottom of the device, and any stoppers from the top. (It may sound basic, but I made this mistake the first time I used a disposable.)


If you have a rechargeable device such as the Aspire R1, you can also charge the device up again.


My vape is getting hot


Vape devices do get warm, as after all they use a battery to heat up a coil.


However, they should not get uncomfortable to the touch - especially if the outer casing is made from plastic.


What’s the cause?


Lana Disposable devices can heat up when you take ultra-long drags, many drags close together or if the airflow is restricted.


Problems are also caused if you store the device in a hot place and/or where it is exposed to direct sunlight.




If it is getting hot, put it down for a while and let it cool down. Avoid taking ultra-long drags close together. It’s also worth checking the mouthpiece to see if anything is obstructing the airflow.


When storing the device, place it in a cool dark place.


In the unlikely event that the device continues to overheat, you should again place it in a hard, closed container. If this is not available, place it on a hard surface. Leave it until it is cool and report the issue to the seller.

Blinking LED light

A blinking LED light can mean a couple of things.


The puff length has been exceeded

Some devices come with a maximum puff length. That means that after you inhale for a certain amount of time, the device will cut off. The blinking can be a signal that this amount of time has been exceeded.




1. Wait a little while for the blinking to stop.


2. Avoid ultra-long drags when you vape again.



You may or may not get a few more puffs out of it.


If your device is not rechargeable, it’s best to change it for a replacement.


If it is rechargeable, you can then charge it up. (Remember, it’s always best to get a rechargeable device if you can.)


The device is faulty

If your disposable device is blinking when you first buy it, that’s an indication there is a problem with the device.


What’s the cause?


This could have been caused by a number of issues, including:


Internal leaking, sometimes caused by changes in air pressure in transport

Rough handling

A fault with the sensor

A faulty coil

A faulty battery



Unfortunately, there’s little you can do to troubleshoot this. The best thing to do is report it to the seller.


It’s best to do this asap, as the warranty on devices is usually dead on arrival, and you don’t want your seller to think you have used it before claiming it is dead!


Insufficient vapour

Sometimes you can inhale, and you don’t get much vapour or hit from your disposable.


What’s the cause?


If you are not getting enough vapour from the device, and you do not have battery issues, that can be caused by issues with airflow. It could also be caused by a weak battery, or by an underperforming coil.




Ensure that the mouthpiece is clear.


You should also check that you are not covering any airholes with your fingers when you inhale.


If the battery is weak, either purchase a new device or, if you have just bought it, return to the seller for a replacement or refund.


How to clear the mouthpiece

If you have a device where you can remove the mouthpiece, take it off and hold it up to the light. Then use a toothpick to clear it of any obstructions.

Unfortunately, with most  disposable devices you can’t take the mouthpiece off. However, you can usually use a toothpick or pin to clear it out.

One solution for all disposable issues!

Disposable devices can be a great introduction to vaping, but they come with their drawbacks.


They are expensive to use on a regular basis, costing on average around 5(USD) per ml compared to just pence per ml with regular vape devices.


They are also bad for the environment.


In contrast, reusable devices cost less and are less harmful to the environment.


They are also easier to fix when they go wrong!


In contrast to disposables, you can recharge the device when the battery dies, or replace the coil or pod if it burns out.
