Battery Tips and Safety
Only use within manufacturers specification.
Lithium-Ion cells should be charged on a dedicated charger rated specifically for Lithium-Ion cells. Most batteries intended for vaping are Lithium Ion-based.
Never leave a battery unattended whilst charging and don’t leave charging overnight. While batteries are far safer than cigarettes in the home, overheating from charging can occur so vigilance is always recommended.
Keep away from animals and children.
It’s recommended that you don’t let your batteries lose their charge fully before recharging. This will help prolong their life.
Wraps and insulators should be periodically inspected for tears or damage. If a battery has a damaged wrap, it should be repaired or disposed of immediately.
Batteries usually have a cycle life of between 200-500 cycles (this varies with manufacturer), around 6 months, before noticeable capacity drop-off. Batteries should be recycled at this time.
Do not crush, incinerate or modify any battery.
