How Should I Care for My Vaping Batteries?
If you treat it well and avoid stressing it with high-amperage loads, a vaping battery should provide perfect service for hundreds of charge-discharge cycles. If you’re always mindful of coil resistance, there’s no need to worry about stressing your batteries.
The next crucial thing to remember is that you should never carry vaping batteries in your pocket. Lithium-ion batteries are potent power sources. A metal object such as a key can potentially touch a battery’s positive and negative terminals and cause a dangerous short circuit. When you transport your batteries, you should always do so in a case that protects the batteries’ terminals.
Do you have a vaping device that charges via USB? Your device’s charging circuitry expects you to use a computer’s USB port. If you use a wall adapter, make sure that the adapter’s wattage and amperage match the specifications set by your vaping device’s manufacturer. Do not charge your vaping device with a “fast charger” for a phone or tablet.
The final crucial point of vaping battery safety is that you should always be nearby while your batteries charge. A battery charger should always discontinue the charge cycle automatically when the battery reaches its target voltage. In the rare event that a charger attempts to overcharge a battery, though, you should be there to take action. If a battery feels overly hot or emits strange smells, unplugging the charger immediately can help to prevent a fire.
