How to Vape Without Triggering Your Smoke Detectors

You should never vape in areas where vaping is expressly prohibited. We get it — it can be tempting to quickly drag your vape pen around. Bars, restaurants, dentists, and many other public places have zero-tolerance policies for smoking and vaping. Using a vaping pen could result in a fine or even a ban.
Other public places do not explicitly ban vaping, but still have smoke alarms. So, how do you vape without setting off your smoke alarm? Believe it or not, there are a few tricks that can help vapers with this exact dilemma.

To be clear, we would never recommend disabling your fire alarm. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there are an average of 356,300 home fires in the United States. The disadvantages of disabling alerts far outweigh the advantages.

fan smoke
Sometimes the simplest tricks are the best. This is by far the easiest way to stop your smoke alarm from beeping. Just move away from the alarm, or even use a tabletop fan to blow steam in the opposite direction.

standing on the windowsill
Experienced vapers should already be aware of this trick, but it’s worth mentioning. Try opening a window and blowing your steam outside. Most vapors will dissipate into the open air.

Buying high PG e-liquid
If you are worried about how to vape without triggering the smoke alarm, you need to use low-PG e-liquid. Many people believe that PG (or even flavoring) produces larger particles than other everyday items such as kettles. Therefore, it is still recommended that you use high VG e-liquid in areas with smoke alarms.

use specific equipment
The type of equipment you use is very important. If you guys use the powerful sub-ohm mods, you’re going to have to deal with a lot of steam. For a more independent vape, you should opt for a low-powered pen device or cartridge system.

There are many technical factors to consider. Coils, cans, and vaping styles can seem overwhelming, especially for vapers who just want a standalone device. We’ve compiled a list of things to look out for.Pod system or pen device
Coil resistance above 1 ohm
Mouth-to-lung (MTL) approach
low power devices
If you find a kit that fits all these markings, you should be able to vape without worrying about a fire alarm.
