BIANSI Imist and Imist 2 Electronic Cigarette/Personal Vaporizer Maintenance
The Imist/2 Electronic Cigarette has several components as illustrated in the photo above.
These instructions cover some of the common maintenance tasks that can be performed on the Imist and Imist 2 components that will help to extend the life of the device. These instructions are not intended to replace any other instructions but as an addendum. If you have Internet access, YouTube is another good source for instructional videos on general and advanced maintenance tasks.
Power Components (Battery and Charger) should be cleaned on a regular basis using a clean and dry (NOT wet) cloth, paper towel, tissue, Q-Tip or other soft material of some sort. Wipe any dirt, sand or buildup from the connectors. “Gunk” on the connectors of the charger and/or battery can cause a short in the device or prevent the battery from charging properly.
The Heating Element (Atomizer) can be cleaned and "Dry Burned" on a regular basis, when you notice a reduced output of vapour from the device or there is a significantly visible buildup of "gunk" on the atomizer coil. WARNING: Damage resulting from an improper dry burn is not covered under warranty. The best and safest method that we have found is to rinse the atomizer thoroughly under hot water. Then use a soft bristle brush to clean the coil (use extreme caution not to bend or deform the coil as it may destroy the atomizer and void any warranty). When finished cleaning, allow the atomizer to dry completely. You can use a hair dryer or other methods to dry the atomizer faster. When it has been completely dried, attach the atomizer to a charged battery (without the cartridge component) and press the switch for 3-5 seconds and release. You will see vapour produced. This is the excess moisture and remaining "gunk" burning from the coil. Repeat pressing/releasing the switch until the coil begins to glow red (like a toaster coil) and stop. Using the soft bristle brush, again using caution not to damage the coil, clean the excess burnt remains from the coil. Be patient when performing a dry burn as depending on how much residue has built on the coil, it could take many repetitions of pressing the button. After performing a burn the coil is completely dry so you MUST re-prime the atomizer coil with a couple of drops of your favourite vapour liquid. Remember! A dry atomizer is a DEAD atomizer.
The Wick in the base of the cartridge cone can be cleaned as well using hot water. As with the atomizer, you must ensure that it is completely dry after cleaning. Carefully, towel dry using a clean, dry paper towel or tissue so as not to dislodge the wick fibers. Use tweezers to remove and replace the wick. After replacing you MUST also re-prime the wick.
