Vaping and Battery Safety

Several incidents have arisen from misuse of mods and poor quality products, ranging from devices exploding to house fires. Whatever vape kit you are using, they all contain batteries with the potential for danger and should be treated with care. For the above, we have brought you today what you need to know about reducing the risks when using the various types of mods available.

Battery Safety Tips

Do Not Overcharge or Over-Discharge

Just avoid leaving the batteries in any charger without supervision. Check on the charger every 15-30 minutes. Once they have been completely charged, remove them from the charger. Also, leaving the batteries on the charger all night long or longer than needed can cause overcharging, which can result in battery failure. Plus, charging your battery over 4.25 volts can shorten its life-cycle, and if you go over 4.5 volts, it can cause the charger to burst. Discard your charger if this ever happens.

Recharge Li-Ion batteries with a resting voltage below 3.6 volts. Leaving these batteries in a discharged state will incur irreversible damage, creating a loss in capacity and a loss in cycles.

We highly recommend using a multimeter to test your batteries. Most battery testers are not equipped for the types of batteries that are used in mods, or even test batteries under load condition.

Avoid Shot Circuiting Your Batteries

Short circuiting can cause a big surge of current that will potentially damage your mod, burn out your battery, or even your face!

Never let your batteries touch each other or other metallic items.

Keeping your batteries loose, such as in your pants pockets, is a common way to have your batteries fail and severely harm you. There are battery covers and holders to keep your batteries safe.

Battery Disposal

Do not dispose of any battery in a fire. If you try to burn your batteries, they will release dangerous fumes and will probably explode. Take your non-working batteries to a battery recycling center.
