Most vaporizers require high discharge, high capacity batteries, and thus battery safety is integral to using your vaporizer. The following tips are for external batteries, such as our AWT 18650, iJoy 20700 and Vapcell 21700 batteries.
- Avoid batteries that are physically damaged. If your battery is dented, DO NOT use it.
- Avoid batteries that have nicked or torn wraps. This is the casing that surrounds and protects the negative body of the battery.
- Avoid batteries with missing insulators. This is the ring that is held on top of the battery by the wrap and protects the positive pin of the battery from the negative body. DO NOT use until the insulator is replaced.
- Always store batteries in a protective case when they are not in a mod or external charger. DO NOT keep loose batteries in your pockets/purses/bags etc.
- Always use an external charger wherever possible. Charging the batteries inside the mod can be tough on the internal circuitry and increases the risk of damaging the batteries.
- Avoid discharging batteries below 3.0V as that can damage them over time. Most mods have a discharge cutoff of around 3.1-3.4V for this reason.
- Avoid overcharging batteries above 4.2V as that can damage them over time. Most mods and external chargers will stop charging the batteries automatically at 4.2V.
If you are ever in doubt or have questions regarding battery safety, do not hesitate to ask our staff. We also offer free battery re-wrap and insulator replacement in-store (service may vary by location). Help us keep vaping safe!
