What happens if you drop your vape in water?

Whether you’re caught in a rainstorm or drop your vape in the sink, you might assume you’ll have to replace it. Luckily, if your vape gets wet, it’s not the end of the world, water won’t ruin the mechanism. However, if you allow the moisture to sit unaddressed, it could cause rust to form inside. Use the following cleaning guide to ensure your vape avoids corrosion and keeps delivering perfect puffs.


Some vapes and e-cigarettes feature removable batteries, while box mods contain batteries inside the casing. If your vape got wet and it isn’t a box mod, remove the battery and allow it to air dry, even if it doesn’t seem to have any moisture around it. In some cases, you may need to blot it with a towel or use a blow dryer to remove excess liquid. If the battery is visibly wet, bring it to a vape store that can determine whether or not you need a replacement.


Next, remove the tank and pour out any e-liquid or vape juice inside. To get rid of any remaining buildup or residue, dab a cloth in unflavored, high-proof vodka and thoroughly wipe down the inside of the tank. Then rinse it out with warm water. Dry the tank with a paper towel, and allow it to air dry for at least 10 minutes before reassembling.

Coil Head

Many vapes feature replaceable coils, but others can be washed and dried if your vape gets wet. To clear out buildup from the nicotine and e-liquid, fill a bowl with the same high-proof vodka. Place the coil heads in the solution and allow them to soak for an hour or two. When the buildup has loosened, rinse the coils under the sink, followed by a distilled water rinse. Then allow the coils to air dry for about a day or until all the moisture has evaporated.
