How to care for the battery section

Handling & Charging practices

When it comes to vaping, there is nothing more critical than safety, and irrespective of the type of e-cig, there are certain simple guidelines we must follow to ensure the safe use, recharging and storage of our batteries. 

Here we look at e-cigarettes that have built-in non-replaceable batteries- such as Pod Systems, AIO’s or All In Ones, Tube or stick Mods, and entry level Mods such as pictured above. Some are sealed 1 piece devices, while others allow you to unscrew and remove the battery section from the tank.

Built-in internal batteries

Reputable e-cig devices with built-in batteries are specifically designed to match the atomiser coils used for a tank that may be included in a kit. Therefore, these present less safety concerns than more advanced Mods using torch type batteries such as 18650’s- Mods that are sold as is without an included tank.

Having said that, we still need to adhere to general usage and recharging guidelines,.

Battery Life

All rechargeable batteries generally last about a year or 300 charges. As the battery ages, it’s common to notice a reduction in performance and or the time it takes to charge. Don’t risk using older batteries and dispose appropriately thereafter.
