    We quite often get asked about battery safety & what the best way to store batteries is for use with electronic cigarette or vaping devices in short. Here are some handy tips to keep you safe, especially leading into the warmer months!
    Battery Safety

    We don't want to sound like your parents, but safety is important especially when it comes to Batteries. Here are some tips to keep your batteries safe and secure, and get the best life out of them.

    Do: When not in use keep them in a hard battery case designed to hold batteries.
    Don't: Leave batteries loose in a bag, pocket, suitcase, car console or other vessel. If they hit something metal like car keys they will go off.
    Do: Store them in a cool, dark space when not in use
    Don't: Leave them in direct sunlight

    Do: Label them and use them in matched pairs when using in a device designed for 2 or more batteries
    Don't: Use them in mismatched pairs, as this will shorten the lifespan of your batteries

    Do: Buy a high discharge, reliable brand such as Samsung, LG, Sony.

    Don't: Cheap out. If the batteries are too low a discharge they won't work or can damage your device, or worse.

    Do: Charge at 1A or less current. Fast charging your battery can drastically reduce its lifespan.

    Don't: Fast charge your batteries.

    Always make sure you install and use the correct batteries for your Vape Device. We carry an extensive range of batteries for vape devices in all sizes from the leading brands vape.
