Firstly, safety – The batteries can still carry an electrical charge and can be dangerous still so if you are not confident then I would recommend you put the whole thing into battery recycling rather than try to break it down yourself first. For those who wish to contine I have put a guide below on how I disassemble and recycle the Lost Mary QM600 disposable electronic vapes or Cigarettes I find.
First of all, get your tools ready, I use a couple of pairs of different sized Pliers, some snippers and a screwdriver.
Ok lets roll.
I start with the metal end cap, get some small pliers and either lever it off or put then through the hole in the top and pull. Don’t worry about breaking it, you are just going to recycle it anyway.
Now grab the plastic end part underneith and pull the guts out.
Now to get the main metal piece out of the plastic body grab the other end and wiggle it out.
Now use pliers to pull the rubber parts out of the end plastic part you pulled off.
Now we shall focus out attention on the battery. Remove the coat from the battery carefully with pliers.
Now snip the red wire away from the positive terminal.
Then the two black wires away from the negative terminal to free up the battery.
Now we just have some tidying up and separating to do for the other pieces:
I couldnt see a way to pull the component out without snipping the rubber part or the wires, do that and it should pull free.
Once you have done that everything should be nicely separated. Recycle the plastic and metal bits in your normal recycling. The battery can be taken to battery recycling, they have these in lots of the big shops and your council should have various facilities. The electronic part and wires can be put in the waste electrical equipment recycling (all councils have these facilities). The rubber is sometimes recycled but sometimes not. If not you can bin it with the fabric pieces.
Well done for recycling these items and having a positive impact, read more here: https://junglebiscuit.com/guide-on-how-to-recycle-disposable-electronic-vapes-or-cigarettes/
