Vape Battery Safety and Tips
In this guide, we discuss Vape Battery Safety and Tips that will help you to ensure a safe vaping experience. Vapes are electronic devices designed to heat up liquid. This gives them a lot of potential to be dangerous devices especially when given a battery as potent as lithium ion batteries. Yes that’s right many vapes use a lithium ion battery that’s right, the same batteries that blew up in 2016. While they are generally manufactured safely heat and pressure can cause batteries like this to overheat, malfunction and explode. To prevent this from happening we’ve decided to set aside a list of do’s and don’ts for those who wonder how I can keep my vaping safe. Well here you go.
Acquisition of Vape Batteries
Battery health starts from before the moment you even set eyes upon it. Make sure you are buying batteries form a trusted supplier. Buying a battery from an unreliable source could be a total waste of money as often times there are no return policy. Using these batteries can result in even more wasted money by potentially damaging your device. The battery is one of the most important purchases you will make for your vape. Getting low quality batteries at low prices may seem like a good idea in the short term but low quality batteries with poor design can leak or malfunction and damage your device. In summary know who you’re buying your batteries from and where they’re coming from.
Care of Your Vape Batteries
While production and shipping of the battery is the distributor’s job once the battery is in your hands it’s your problem. A vape is an electronic device designed to heat up and move liquids. This puts batteries that are sensitive to heat and pressure at very high risk. Remember to always check your vape for water coming near where the battery is stored. In box mods this is usually the 510 connector. In general it is a good idea to keep your devices in working order by cleaning them but this is especially true in any scenario in which your battery can get wet. In pens and other more compressed vaping devices make sure to keep the area the battery is stored in clean and dry. In more compressed designs leakage is a common occurrence and should be cleaned frequently to be prevented.
Options and Alternatives for Vape Batteries
Batteries come in a fairly wide variety. The commonly used types of batteries are lithium ion batteries but as technology has gotten better more options have entered the field. Sub ohm vaping is a more dangerous form of vaping that can be very stressful on a battery. Why do I mention that? Well sub ohm vapers have also found alternative batteries to use namely Hybrid Lithium and IMR batteries. Typical vapes use lithium ion batteries but hybrid lithium in particular is a newer safer option that doesn’t lose much in efficiency and power to the older lithium ion batteries.
Other Vape Battery Safety Tips
Like with all things in life it’s good to have a spare in the case the one you own fails. This is especially important for those using non-rechargeable batteries.
Don’t let batteries die on their first life. In general letting batteries go to 0 power is bad for the battery and frequency in doing so can quickly deteriorate a batteries lifespan.
I did tell you to check your battery containment area right? Because do that often.
The battery is one of the most potent parts of your vape and should be handled with utmost care. The battery is a power source for your entire vape so if it stops working the rest of your vape will go with it. This helps show the importance of care and maintenance that is required on vape products as well as electronics in general. Remember to buy your batteries from trustworthy sources, remember to take care of your batteries, remember to check out different types of batteries and remember it’s always nice to have a spare. Stay safe and always remember to check your battery slots. You did check them right?
