GIVE YOUR FLAVOUR BLASTER A SEASONAL MOT
Keep your Flavour Blaster Fit for Purpose with an Occasional MOT
Every year those of us that drive take our cars for a regular service. Cars are complicated machines. So is your Flavour Blaster gun. It will last longer and work better if you follow these simple servicing steps.
- Prime your tank properly.
- Change your coils.
Between two-to-three weeks, your coil will start to lose its ability to give off an aroma. At this point, you'll need to remove the aroma tank from your Flavour Blaster and take the old coil out, then fit a new one. Don't worry; we also have a video on how to do this!
- Keep your Flavour Blaster workspace clear and organised during service.
The Flavour Blaster needs to be stored out of the way of a busy service station in an upright position. Clean and dry your nozzle after every use. If the gun is kept tilted back on the hilt, water or Bubble X may enter the mechanical parts of the gun or damage the fan.
You also need to keep the charge port clear of debris so that the electrical components can connect correctly. Remove the aroma tank when you're not using the gun, so the coil can properly cool down and keep your aroma coils separate so that the aromatics don't get mixed up. We have products available on the website that can help you store the Flavour Blaster sensibly on shift.
- Only use approved products with your Flavour Blaster.
As tempting as it is to experiment with ingredients, all of our ancillary products are tested carefully before releasing them. We just don't know how non approved products will interact with our technology. Please don't use any physical aroma products like flowers or herbs, as they will damage your aroma tank. There is a fire risk if you use anything other than approved cocktail flavours in the aroma tanks, as well as a risk of breaking your equipment.
- Don't drop or damage the Flavour Blaster gun.
Despite our durable plastic and metal outer casing, the inner mechanical parts of the Flavour Blaster are delicate. Batteries, circuit boards, fans and lighting parts are easily damaged if the gun is dropped or mishandled.
- Once it gets to 10% battery, charge it!
Only charge your battery using a Micro Mag USB charging cable with a CE and UL-certified wall charger. There is overcharge prevention inbuilt within the gun, but it's best to unplug your Flavour Blaster when it's fully charged anyway. If you think the battery might be damaged in any way, don't charge it. See our user manual for further directions, or contact us if you believe there is a unique problem.
- Store your Flavour Blaster away from extreme temperatures
Anything under zero degrees will prevent your Flavour Blaster from working. Despite the maximum temperature stated (200 degrees Fahrenheit, 93 degrees celsius) in the manual for when the Flavour Blaster is turned off, when the battery, lights, coil and tank are in constant use, they will get hot to touch from the energy expenditure. This is a hard variable to control, so keep the Flavour Blaster gun in a room temperature area, rather than on top of a hot fridge fan, if you want it to work optimally.
- Keep it away from water.
Only dip the end of the nozzle in the Bubble X mixture rather than submerging the entire nozzle because the electrical parts of the Flavour Blaster are not water-resistant. Likewise, keep the gun away from steamy glass washers or working sinks to prevent any water-related damage.
- Use a protective case when travelling.
In transit, it's effortless to prevent damage outlined in point five by using our event flight travelling case. Make sure you follow international rules for travelling or shipping with two integral lithium-ion batteries.
- Turn off the power and remove the tank when you're not using the Flavour Blaster.
The Flavour Blaster has several safety features inbuilt. For example, the fan will automatically turn off if in use for over eight seconds. The overcharge protection monitor will automatically turn off the batty if the voltage gets too high. There is a short circuit protection feature, too, which will stop the unit from working in unsafe conditions. Despite all this, we do suggest leaving the device turned off if you're not in attendance and once it's powered off, then store it well out of the reach of children or very drunk people!
