How to Stop Getting E-Liquid In Your Mouth

You must be over 18 to purchase products from E-Cigarette Direct

Problem: Getting e-liquid in your mouth while vaping

This can happen for a number of reasons, the most common being that your e-cig has been stored in a way that allows e-liquid to get into the airway. The other reason for this is the device has been standing for a long period of time, and gravity has taken its toll. E-liquid can also be caused by your tank flooding.


  1. Holding your ecig at the bottom, flick the tip towards the floor to remove any e-liquid trapped in the airway. Make sure you do this outside or over a floor that can be cleaned easily as e-liquid will escape.
  2. Using a small q-tip,carefully insert one end into the drip tip to wipe out any e-liquid residue.
  3. Remove the clearomiser and blow through the top.

Please note that this problem can be made worse when using a clearomiser with a lot of airflow as there is less resistance against the e-liquid.


Sometimes a vape, when hot, will ‘spit’ e-liquid into the mouth. This usually happens when you first fire the coil, and is characterised by a popping noise.

Some modern devices come with built in solutions to stop spitback, but there’s a very simple and low tech solution to this problem – simply point the device away from you when you first fire it up. If the problem continues on  a regular basis, it might also be worth reducing the wattage levels.

You Must Be Over 18 to Buy From E-cigarette Direct

Why do I have to prove my age?

To our website you look under 18.

So, as a responsible retailer, we need to check your age.

You'll only need to do this once and it takes less than a minute.

Our age verification system is quick and easy to complete. Simply enter your date of birth, and our system will use the information from your order to do the rest.

On rare occasions, you might find that you don’t succeed on first try. Don’t worry - our super-friendly customer service team is on hand to ensure that, as long as you are 18 or over, you can still get your vaping supplies!

Once you have confirmed your age we won’t usually need to check again. (Exceptions can occur, for example if you change your name).

(You can help us check your age by ensuring your name and address are spelt absolutely correctly in the order form :) )

How your data is used

We use as little data as possible. The only data that ECigaretteDirect keep is information needed to send your order, and your date of birth (so we only have to check once!)

Your age is checked using Experian, which will check the information you provide against information in existing records to confirm you are over 18. No credit check is performed but a record of the search will be visible to you on your credit report. This will not affect your ability to get credit.

Why do we check age?

As you may know, there has been some concern that under-18’s may try vaping.

This is against both our company policy and the law.

And as responsible retailers, we need to do everything we can to ensure that every customer is of legal age.

For more information, see our Terms and Conditions.

How Secure is e-Cigarette Direct?

Your privacy is important to us, and your personal information should remain just that - personal.

See the little green lock in the search bar? That’s our security certificate (SSL or secure socket layer to be precise). It encrypts all the information you enter so that no-one else can see it.

Information you provide for age verification is sent securely to Experian and no details of the checks are stored in our system. Ever.

If you have any concerns, please call our friendly customer services team on 01792 852843 (Mon - Fri, 9am - 5pm).

For the techies: Our SSL certificate uses an sha256 hashing algorithm.
