The vaping industry is booming, and more people are buying their first vape pens so they can lessen their dependence on nicotine. At Faze™ Vapor, Denver’s one-stop shop for all things vaping, the friendly and knowledgeable team not only helps customers choose the right vaporizer and e-cig accessories, but they also educate their customers to keep them safe.
One of the most important things you should know is how to take care of your vape pen's batteries. Here are battery safety basics from the experts at Faze™ Vapor:
- Don’t Overcharge: You might leave your phone plugged in all night long, but you shouldn’t do this with your vape pen. When you charge your battery, check it at least every half hour to see if the light indicates it has been fully charged. Once it’s charged, immediately remove it from the charger. If you charge it more than 4.5 volts, not only will you shorten the lifespan of the battery, but it can actually burst. Also, always use the charger that was designed for your battery.
- Keep Separate Batteries Separated: If you are using an e-cig that has separate batteries (as opposed to built-in ones), make sure to cap the battery terminals and keep them separated in a well-insulated case. If the terminals touch a piece of metal or the terminal of another battery, it could explode.
- Get The Right Battery For Your Coil: If you are new to vaping, Faze™ Vapor will help you find a vaporizer with a pre-built atomizer, which is safe to use with most e-cig batteries. However, if you are building your own coils, make sure your batteries are safe to use with the coil of your atomizer.
- Don’t Expose To Extreme Temperatures: Batteries should be kept between 50 and 155 degrees Fahrenheit. If the battery is exposed to extreme temperatures, you can run into problems—so don’t keep it in your glove box in the middle of the summer.
Most safety hazards happen with cheap vape pens. To avoid these problems, buy a high-quality vape pen from Faze™ Vapor.
