How to care for the battery section
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.
Designed for Simplicity & Safety
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,.
