(Image by Ecigclick) Music festivals are often great fun, and they give you the ability to enjoy yourself, let loose, and really express yourself in the way wish. However, if you’re a fan of vaping and you’re planning to attend a few festivals, you need to know the proper vaping etiquette when it comes to using your devices on the scene.
Ranging from the rules regarding vaping at the venue or how to store your products, there’s a range of things you need to check and prepare beforehand. Here’s your short music festival vaping survival guide which will get your ready to rock and roll.
Check The Policy
It’s true that a lot of music festivals allow vaping, but you still need to check where you’ll be able to vape and if you’ll be able to vape in certain areas. Most festivals will usually have the same policy for both smoking and vaping – being that it’s usually allowed outdoors, but not underneath pop-ups or tents.
Even if vaping is allowed, certain festivals won’t allow you to bring in any glass bottles, so you’ll have to carry your juices in plastic bottles to be safe. It’s better to check ahead then end up regretting it before the fun even starts.
Keep Your Batteries Secure
When it comes to vaping at festivals, you need to be safe, and that means you need to be cautious and look after your kit. Running off with spare batteries and your vape device in your pocket to join the crowd of a show means that you’re exposing the products to large amounts of heat and pressure. Not only can this damage your vape pen, but in severe cases it can cause the batteries to explode or short-circuit.
Keep your batteries out of harm’s way by making sure all your spares are kept in cases in a secure location. Likewise, when using your device out and about, remain cautious and knowledgeable of the situations you find yourself in. A lot of people recommend taking carrying cases to festivals, as it gives you a good way to look after your device and store it out of the to avoid being damaged.
Make Sure You’re Prepared
Some festivals will have charging ports and stations available, but that still doesn’t mean that you’re going to have access to power whenever you need it. Just like keeping your batteries safe, make sure you have enough stock to last you the duration of the festival.s
If you’re worried about batteries running out, consider taking a portable charger so that you’ll be able to charge your device when you have a time to take a short break from the music. You need to consider how often you’ll be using your vape pen and roughly estimate how much power you need. You don’t want to find yourself in the situation of not having any power on hand when you need it.
Batteries aren’t the only essential. Those who vape frequently will need to pack extra vape liquid to avoid running out. E-liquids can also be affected by the heat and in some cases ruined, so having a spare juice around is important.
Have Fun, Don’t Be Obnoxious
Even if you’ve done all your research and you know you’re allowed to vape to your heart’s desire, remember that not everybody around you will share the same passion for vaping. Just because vaping is allowed, doesn’t mean that everybody does it and it doesn’t mean that everybody supports it, either.
Music festivals are meant to be fun-loving and open environments for everybody to enjoy, so keep others in consideration and don’t go around blowing vapor in the faces of your fellow festival-goers.
Have a great time at any music festival with your vape at your side, but stay aware of the rules you should know and the preparations you should take beforehand.
