How to Charge the RandM Tornado 9000 Vape

The RandM Tornado 9000 is one of the most popular disposable vapes on the market in 2023, and a big reason for the device’s popularity is how incredibly long it lasts – up to 9,000 puffs. Very few other disposable vapes even come close to that amount of usage.

Depending on how you use the device, that could be the equivalent of up to three cartons of cigarettes in a single device. It’s no wonder that so many vapers are switching from refillable devices to disposable ones these days – it’s the cheapest way to vape by far.

The reason why the RandM Tornado Vape 9000 lasts as long as it does is because it has a rechargeable battery. Because you can recharge the battery, you can drain every drop of the device’s sizable e-liquid supply.

If the RandM Tornado 9000 is your first vaping device, though, you can’t rely on your previous experience when learning how to use the device and might feel a little confused when it’s time to figure things out.

In this article, we’re going to help you get through the confusion and explain how to use your device.

So, how do you charge the RandM Tornado 9000? Hopefully, you have a USB cable handy.

How to Charge the RandM Tornado 9000

To charge the RandM Tornado 9000, you need a computer and a USB-C cable. The RandM Tornado doesn’t include a charging cable because consumers expect disposable vapes to be as inexpensive as possible.

If the device included a charging cable, you’d pay as much as 10 percent more for it and would eventually have an enormous pile of USB cables with no purpose. So, you’ll have to use your own cable.

You can charge the RandM Tornado 9000 with any USB-C cable that’s capable of transmitting power.

When the battery in the RandM Tornado 9000 dies, the device’s indicator light will blink when you puff on the device. At that point, it’s time to charge the battery. Connect the RandM Tornado 9000 to your computer, and the device’s light will illuminate blue.

Charging the device takes about a half hour, and the light will turn off when the Tornado 9000 is fully charged.

When the RandM Tornado 9000 is fully charged, the charge cycle stops automatically. At this point, you can disconnect the device from your computer and resume using it.

Like all modern rechargeable devices, the Tornado 9000 knows when it’s done charging and turns off automatically when the battery is full.

It’s best to disconnect the device when the charge cycle is complete, though, because leaving any rechargeable battery connected to a power source for too long creates a trickle charge that may ultimately shorten the battery’s life.

RandM Tornado 9000 Not Charging?

When you connect the RandM Tornado 9000 to your computer, the light should illuminate blue to confirm that the battery is charging. If that doesn’t happen, the battery isn’t charging. Thankfully, this is an easy issue to troubleshoot in most cases.

Here’s what you should do.

Replace the cable

USB-C cables are notoriously inconsistent, and they’re also very cheaply made. It’s common for USB-C cables to suddenly stop working correctly because they’ve developed internal damage after being connected and disconnected constantly for months.

That’s one of the drawbacks of needing to use your own cable for charging a disposable vape – some of the cables in your collection may not work properly. When a disposable vape like the RandM Tornado 9000 isn’t charging, replacing the cable is generally the only thing you need to do to fix the problem.

Connect the RandM Tornado 9000 to your computer and not to a wall adapter

USB wall chargers – especially the ones included with high-end devices like mobile phones – often use much stronger charging currents than a vaping device like the Tornado 9000 can support.

If the amperage or wattage of the charging current is too high, the Tornado 9000 will either overheat or refuse to charge at all. If the Tornado 9000 doesn’t charge when you connect it to your computer, try a different USB port.

Clean the RandM Tornado 9000’s charging port

If you carry the device in your pocket, it’s possible that lint is stuck in the port. In this case, the charging cable can’t make a good connection with the device. You can remove contaminants from the Tornado 9000’s charging port with a toothpick.

If you’re unable to make the RandM Tornado 9000 start charging by following the steps above, you have most likely received a defective device and should return it to the retailer. If you purchased the Tornado 9000 from a quality vape shop, you should have no trouble returning it.

Before refunding your purchase or exchanging your device, an attendant at the vape shop will try charging the device in the store to confirm that it isn’t working properly.

How Long Should the RandM Tornado 9000 Last?

You should never have to worry about the battery in the RandM Tornado 9000 going bad because a typical lithium-ion battery should last as many as 300-500 charge cycles. As you use the device, the only thing that you need to worry about is the e-liquid supply.

Like virtually all disposable vapes, the RandM Tornado 9000 isn’t refillable. When the device runs out of vape juice, it’s time to replace it.

To know when the RandM Tornado 9000 is out of e-liquid, all that you need to do is pay attention to the flavor quality when you use the device. When it has plenty of vape juice left, you’ll get a bold and sweet flavor with every puff.

When the device is low on e-liquid, though, you’ll notice that the flavor will start to become a bit weak.

At that point, you should get ready to replace the device soon. When the Tornado 9000 is completely out of vape juice, it’ll produce a very harsh, burnt flavor – and almost no vapor at all – every time you use it. You’ll need to replace the device when it gets to that point.
