The modern vape pen has a wide variety of benefits. With the invention of extract and updated technologies, what we use today is far more effective and optimized than traditional methods.
Back then, you had to use glass and water pipes. These would take forever to clean, and if you weren't up to par on it constantly, you would find that your piece was clogged with sticky black resin.
The best and most common home remedies for cleaning your pipes were rubbing alcohol and warm salt water. Most of the time, you would fill a Tupperware bin with a mixture of rubbing alcohol, salt, and warm water and let your piece sit in the bin overnight. Waking up the next morning would showcase a dark black sludgy mix. You would reach in, find your waterpipe and wash it off. Good as new.
With waterpipes it was similar, but other technologies were implemented to make cleaning your waterpipe easy.

You don't need a ton of accessories in order to clean your vape pen battery, you will need the following:
First, remove the battery from the cartridge or pod. Then make sure it is off. If it is a 510-thread battery, then click the button 5 times to turn it off. If it is a vape pod battery then it will be off until your device pulls from it. Still, it is the best idea to remove the pod from the device.
