Vape batteries, you may have heard them called 18650s or 21500s, are all lithium batteries and therefore have the potential to be dangerous if not used correctly. Lithium batteries are used in laptops and phones as well as vape devices.
Important Safety Tips
- It is important to buy batteries that are fully marked with all the correct UK safety symbols and from a reputable seller.
- We would always recommend that you charge your batteries externally in a vape battery charger by a reputable brand like Efest or Nitecore. Never charge batteries over night or unattended.
- Once batteries are paried they are paired for life, do not put a new battery and an old battery in a device together. They need to age together so their capacities are the same and one battery doesn’t put strain on another making your device unsafe.
- Whenever transporting your batteries they must be either in your device or in a battery box. Do not carry batteries loose as they may make contact with loose change or other items and short circuit in your pocket or bag and cause an explosion.
- Once batteries are damaged at all, splits in the casing or general wear and tear, dispose of them properly (not in household rubbish) and replace them with new ones.
- Use the correct charging cable - Using a different cable to what your device came with can cause problems because the charger you are using may have a higher voltage than your battery which will cause your device to overheat.
- Do not over strain your batteries or let them discharge completely as this will damage them over time.
- Never charge your device on a flammable surface such as your bed or pillows. It is also important not to charge your batteries or leave your Mod in a hot car or direct sunlight.
- Keep batteries and Mod away from water and other extreme temperatures or weathers.
