Vaping produces vapor, which can sometimes set off smoke alarms if the vapor is dense enough or contains particles that can trigger the alarm. Here are some tips to help you vape without setting off a smoke alarm:
- Use a high-quality vaping device: Cheaper or older vaping devices may produce more vapor or produce vapor that is thicker and more likely to set off a smoke alarm. Consider investing in a newer, higher-quality device that produces less vapor.
- Vape near an open window: Vaping near an open window can help to dissipate the vapor and reduce the chances of setting off a smoke alarm. If possible, position yourself near a window or other source of ventilation.
- Blow the vapor away from the smoke alarm: When exhaling the vapor, blow it away from the smoke alarm to help reduce the concentration of vapor around the alarm.
- Use a sploof: A sploof is a device that filters out the vapor and reduces the smell of the vapor. You can easily make a sploof by stuffing a toilet paper roll with dryer sheets. Exhale the vapor through the sploof to help reduce the amount of vapor in the air.
- Consider using a lower wattage or temperature: Using a lower wattage or temperature on your vaping device can reduce the amount of vapor produced and may help to prevent setting off a smoke alarm.
It’s important to note that even with these tips, it is still possible to set off a smoke alarm while vaping. If you are in a situation where you need to be discreet or where a smoke alarm could cause a problem, consider finding an alternative to vaping or vaping in a designated smoking area.
