The Four Enemies of Vape Pens and Vape Juice

When storing vape juice and vape pens, there are four enemies you need to watch out for:

  • Heat
  • Light
  • Air
  • Movement

The idea of how to store a vape pen and vape juice boils down to finding a place that has no heat, no light, no air, and where there won’t be any possible movement. This is because these elements all accelerate the expiration of vape juice, making it spoil faster. Aside from this heat, light and movement are dangerous for your vape pen as well because they can age the electronics inside your device and movement can lead to falls and leaks. 

How To Store a Vape Pen in Your Home

So what’s the best way to store a vape pen in your home? Well, for starters, you need to make sure wherever you plan on storing it, you can store it in an upright position. This reduces the likelihood of a leak if the tank happens to be full, and worse, prevents the tank from cracking because of a fall.

Aside from this, keeping the vape pen away from light and heat is essential as we already mentioned above. Not only can they age the electronics, but they can also interact with the battery, and this is never good. 

Usually, finding a cabinet that is at room temperature, dark, and where the possibility of it falling on its own is minimal is the best place to store a vape pen. Although, containers at ground level are also a great idea as long as you do not have any pets or children. 

How To Store Vape Juice in Your Home

The same rules apply to vape juice. Find a dark, cool, airless space where there is not a lot of movement. For example, a freezer is the ideal place for storing vape juice because it keeps the heat away, there is no air blowing through, there is no light, and there is virtually zero movement. A dedicated ice chest like a Yeti would also work well.  

How To Store Vape Batteries in Your Home

If you own a box mod and you use 18650 batteries, you must have a plastic container where you can keep your batteries. These batteries are extremely dangerous if not handled properly, that’s why it’s essential to keep them away from heat, light, and other metal objects like coins or metal trinkets. That’s why a dedicated 18650 battery plastic case, where both batteries have their own space and are separated, is essential for battery safety. You can buy a plastic case right here

Why You Should Keep Your Vape Products Away from Children and Pets

If you live with children or pets, the place where you keep your vape products should be stored behind a lock and key. Both vape pens and vape juice have nicotine, which for small pets and children is considered poison. Vape juice in particular is very dangerous since if drunk like a liquid, it could prove lethal to pets and children. That’s why we always recommend to get a lock or store your vape products not only in airless, dark, and cool spaces, but also a place where children or pets can’t access. 


And that’s it, we hope that with this brief introduction to proper vape product storage, you learned where to best keep your vape pen and vape products in your home. Remember that if you live with children or pets, making sure they can’t get into your vape pen or vape juice will be your number one priority.
