Fire Button

Let's turn our attention to that small, yet undeniably powerful button located on your vape device - the fire button. Have you ever wondered about the key differences between manual and automatic firing? Then let's get into it!

What Is a Fire Button?

The fire button is a vape component that activates the heating element. Essentially, it is the button that you press to start the vaping process. When you press the fire button, an electrical circuit is completed, allowing current to flow from the battery to the coil, heating it and vaporising the e-liquid.

Manual Firing vs Auto-Firing

There are two main types of fire buttons: manual firing and auto-firing

  • Manual firing requires the user to press and hold the fire button to activate the vape device. This gives users more control over their vaping experience as they can customise the duration of each puff by releasing the button when they want to stop vaping. It also helps prevent accidental activation in pockets or bags.
  • Auto-firing devices do not require the user to press any buttons. These devices have sensors that automatically activate the heating element when you inhale from the mouthpiece. While auto-firing devices offer more convenience, there is a higher risk of accidental activation if they are not properly handled or if the sensor malfunctions.

    How to Use the Fire Button on a Vape?

    To use the fire button, simply press and hold it while inhaling through the mouthpiece. Release the button when you want to stop vaping. It is essential to follow the manufacturer's instructions for your specific device.

    Should I Hold the Fire Button when Vaping?

    We would recommend holding the button for a second to allow the device to heat up before you start inhaling. When drawing, take slow and steady drag while holding the button, typically for no longer than 5 seconds, to achieve the most satisfying hit.

    Can the Fire Button Get Stuck?

    In rare cases, the button may get stuck due to debris or damage. If this happens, it is important to stop using the device immediately and contact the manufacturer or seek assistance from a vaping professional for proper inspection and repair.
