The Do’s and Don’ts for Vaping Battery Safety

Buy a quality vape

When you purchase a high-quality vape and use it according to the manufacturer’s instructions, you are less likely to have an accident.

Do research before selecting the right battery

When you purchase a vaporizer that doesn’t come with a built-in battery, you’ll need to choose your own. Most standalone vape mods are battery not included, so make sure to do research before making your final decision.

Buy a quality smart charger

explosions can occur due to overcharging or discharging of batteries. A smart charger offers more safety features than a regular charger.

Use a battery case for transportation

It’s not just important to have a battery case for transportation, it’s crucial. If you’re going to be traveling and carrying your extra batteries with you, make sure you have a battery case and not just the loose batteries.

Be aware of the weather

Fluctuating temperatures, either extremely hot or extremely cold can damage your device’s battery which could lead to explosions. Batteries are generally safest between 10 and 20 degrees celsius (50 and 60 degrees fahrenheit).

Use the correct charging cable

It is important to use the correct charging cable when charging your device. Your battery may not be rated for a higher voltage than your charger, and doing so could result in damage to your battery.

Never use a damaged battery

If there’s any sign of fault, like if the wrapper is damaged or frayed, or your battery fails to keep charge, replace it with a fresh one immediately.

Don’t leave battery charging unattended

When you’re not using your vape, make sure to keep an eye on it. Leaving a battery charging unattended is a safety risk because there’s a chance it will overheat or explode.

Don’t mix and match sets of batteries or battery chargers

While many batteries may look the same and seem interchangeable, you should never mix and match these components because a difference in voltage output may cause your batteries to be damaged.

Never over-discharge your battery

You should never over-discharge your battery because it can be just as harmful as overcharging it. It can weaken your battery and even cause serious damage.
