Electronic Cigarette Battery Rules for Beginners

Electronic Cigarette batteries are safe and efficient products if you are using them correctly. As a beginner in the vaping world, there are a few things you should know about these batteries to keep you safe and your device in the best condition possible. Here is a beginner’s guide to everything you need to know about your e-cig battery.

Automatic or Manual Battery

Many people who try an electronic cigarette for the first time will try an e-cigarette with an automatic battery. Most smokers pick these because they are used with e-cigs that resemble a traditional cigarette. When you inhale through a device with an automatic battery, it detects this rush of air and turns the battery on. A manual battery has a button that you press to activate.

Automatic E-Cigarette Batteries

  • They are simple to use for a beginner.
  • They closely resemble regular cigarettes.
  • They usually require less charging time.
  • You may experience a slight delay between when you start puffing and you start inhaling the vapor.

Manual E-Cigarette Batteries

  • These usually have more power and offer more vapor and a stronger throat hit.
  • They offer more control and have a longer cut off time.
  • They require slightly more expertise.
  • They usually have a longer life because of the batteries size.
  • They can be turned on and off.
  • They usually have a longer life than the automatic batteries.

Variable Voltage Batteries

Variable voltage batteries are a step up from manual batteries. They allow you to increase or decrease voltage provided by the battery. This is done by pressing a button or twisting a part on the end of the battery. This will allow you to find a better voltage for:

  • The type of e-juice or cartridge you are vaping with.
  • The tank or atomizer you are using.
  • Your preference when it comes to amount of vapor and the throat hit.

When using a variable voltage battery, you can control your experience by changing the resistance of the atomizer in your tank.

Battery Style

If you like a device that stands out and fits your style, there are many more choices than the boring white or black batteries. They come in all sorts of colors and styles. You can easily find one that matches your vaping preference.
Capacity vs. Voltage

Some vapers are confused by a batteries capacity and a batteries voltage. The capacity is measured in mAh. A higher mAh rating, the longer the battery will last. The voltage is the output that the battery can provide to your device.

What Your Batteries Life Depends On

 Your battery’s life depends on many things:

  • How you are using your device.
  • How you maintain and charge your device.
  • Battery size.
  • Voltage you’re using.
  • Atomizer you’re using.

Tips to Making Your Battery Last Longer:

  • A battery will last longer if you take short drags instead of long ones.
  • Make sure that you give it a good charge when you first get the battery.
  • Store it in a dark, cool place.
  • Charge it back up before the battery is fully drained.
  • Use your device regularly.
  • Turn it off when you’re not using it.
  • Keep it out of direct sunlight and high temperatures.

That should be all the information you need about your e-cig battery as a beginner. Keep all of this in mind while you’re vaping with your new device.

3 Ways to Keep Your E-Cigarette Battery and Cartridge Happy

The batteries for a traditional e-cigarette setup can be a little tricky to keep in the best condition. Small parts are finicky and delicate at times, but with a few tips and careful maintenance, you can keep the cartridge and battery running in peak condition.

Tip #1: Charging Your Vape-Pen Battery

Many people are familiar with the small vape devices that look like a pen-style or a e-cig device. These are commonly referred to as “electronic cigarettes”, and usually are an all-in-one device ready for you to use, with a pre-filled cartridge attached to the battery. The cartridges twist or pull off, depending on the brand and connector type.

One of the safest and easiest ways to charge your battery is to plug it into the included charger, then into USB to wall charger that matches the output and voltage rating on the USB that came with your E-Cig. Most companies have an AC adapter that is included as well or available for purchase that is compatible and safe to use with your e-cigarette.

You need to make sure you are charging your battery when you are present, in case of any accidents that could happen. Batteries have a simple chemistry to them that can be safely managed when they are attended to and used properly. Avoiding charging them overnight and always being aware of where they are and when they are done charging will help avoid any technical problems.

Tip #2: Keeping Your Cartridge in Optimum Performance

E-cigarettes are usually considered a mouth-to-lung device, with a restrictive, tight inhale into your mouth, to your lungs and then the exhale. This means that you can pull lightly on them and get great response, as the sensors inside are very easily tripped. Drawing with as little pull as possible will keep your cartridge from leaking and working properly, and any accidental leakage can be wiped off easily with a paper towel or dry washcloth.

An additional tip for cartridge maintenance is to make sure you only attach it to the battery with enough force to get in into place.

Tip #3: Storing Your Battery and Cartridge

For storage and travel with your e-cigarette, a great thing to do is to remove the cartridge and battery, and store at least the cartridge upright in a case or bottle. You can also add paper towel or small piece of cloth padding to keep them from being damaged.

The technology behind e-cigarettes is easier when paired with a little bit of DIY information. Having these three tips will hopefully help you to make sure your e-cig is consistent, and that you can enjoy your experience with it.
