Is Vaping Safe?

One of the biggest concerns about vaping is it’s safety. Any device that has a battery carries a risk of explosion or fire, including laptops, phones and vapes. That’s why it is so important to take good care of your batteries, to ensure that this never happens. Here are some helpful tips to ensure you’re taking care of your batteries. 

Make use of the On/Off feature when your device is not in use and remove batteries if your product/ device is being stored for long periods.

Always carry and store batteries in non-conductive containers and never with metal/metallic objects such as loose change or keys.

Do not short batteries! (Intentionally or accidentally connecting the positive and negative end of the cell)

Always use the charger supplied with your product/device or a battery charger designed for the cells you are charging.

Never submerge batteries in water or expose to extremes of temperature or temperature fluctuation.

Periodically inspect your batteries for damage to the wrap or insulator that could lead to a direct short.

Always dispose of end of life cells at your local WEEE recycling centre or collection point.

Never completely discharge batteries. (The cut off for most cells is 2.8v or 2.5v)

Do I need to replace my batteries?

All batteries degrade over time, in all electronics, from your phone to laptops. This is no different with vape batteries, and occasionally they do need to be changed. This is one advantage of having a device with a removable battery, as you can easily swap them when they do start to wear out. 

We usually recommend changing your batteries every 10-12 months for an average user. A standard 18650 battery will normally last around 300 charge cycles. So yes batteries will need replacing eventually, either at the end of their life or if they show signs of damage.
