How do I recharge my Alair?

You will know your Alair pen needs to be recharged when the white light on the end flashes three times upon a draw. The pen is USB rechargeable. Unscrew the pen where the gold cartridge meets the black battery. Screw the battery into the USB charger, and plug into a USB outlet. While your pen is charging, the light will stay on; you will know your pen is fully charged when the light turns off.

Please ensure that you are plugging the USB charger into a wall outlet and not into a computer/laptop USB port, to ensure it gets an adequate charge. If your battery is weak, it will not be able to supply the heating element with enough power to properly produce vapor.

It is equally important not to overcharge your pen. A full charge is achieved after about 30 minutes plugged into your USB wall outlet. Excessive charging will weaken your battery from holding a long charge life over time. The lifespan of the pen battery typically lasts on average 300 charge cycles.

My pen doesn't seem to be working. What could be wrong?

Is the pen not producing vapor? Sometimes the oil may clog the airhole or obstruct contact points. A simple cleaning may solve this. Please refer to the cleaning FAQ.

Note: When reassembling the pen after cleaning, the cartridge chamber and mouth tip need to be screwed onto the pen body only to a snug fit; a cartridge screwed on too loosely or tightly may interfere with vapor flow.

Does temperature matter? How should I store my Alair?

Climate fluctuations may affect the pen’s performance. To avoid this, try to keep your battery and cartridges in stable, room temperature conditions. If the cartridge is cold, the oil viscosity may become thicker, and the pen atomizer may not heat to full capacity, resulting in less vapor. If your pen has been exposed to cold temperatures, please warm it up for a few moments using your hands prior to using.

We recommend storing cartridges mouth tip down in a cool place out of direct sunlight.

How do I clean my Alair pen?

Unscrew the cartridge from the battery. Using an alcohol wipe or a small amount of rubbing alcohol on tissue, lightly wipe the entire surface of the cartridge. Do the same with the pen body (battery), being careful not to touch the atomizer. Wait for the alcohol to dry before using again.
