There is a huge difference between vape batteries and the ordinary remote control batteries that you are used to. Vape batteries are more powerful, and also more expensive. They also need to be handled with care for them to perform optimally. To ensure that you keep your batteries in top condition, here are a few tips on how to keep vape batteries safe.
1. Buy good quality batteries
When it comes to battery safety, the quality of the batteries you have is critical. It’s almost impossible to keep a low-quality fake battery safe. No matter what you do, it will still get ruined. In fact, such batteries put you at risk because they can explode and harm you, in spite of your best efforts to take care of them. To stay safe, buy vape batteries from reputable companies. Such batteries are safe, and as long as you take precautions, such as keeping them wrapped at all times, they can serve you for longer.
2. Always keep them wrapped
One of the best ways to keep your vape batteries safe is to keep them wrapped. If you notice any defects in the wrapping, don’t hesitate to rewrap them again. Battery wrappers shouldn’t really worry you, they are so cheap that you can replace them as often as you wish. Besides, most vape shops offer wrapping services for free, provided you are a client. As long as you keep the wrapping in good condition at all times, the batteries will serve you perfectly.
3. Make use of battery cases
One common mistake that most people make is to store vape batteries in pockets and random bags. This is dangerous because, if the battery comes into contact with metallic objects, it can short-circuit and explode. To avoid such accidents, store your batteries in a battery case. These are often made of plastic, and are very affordable. They are so cheap that there is really no reason for you to risk a battery explosion by storing them the wrong way.
4. Don’t leave your vape batteries charging unattended
While the risk is not that high, unless they are fake batteries, it is always good to avoid the risk. Always make sure that you are nearby when charging the batteries. To further minimize risks, don’t leave the battery charging overnight. Anything can happen, and cause them to explode, and it’s not a risk worth taking.
5. Don’t let your batteries drain completely
All Lithium-ion batteries tend to lose their long-term use-value, when discharged completely. As such, if you constantly let them drain completely before charging them, they won’t last. To ensure that your batteries last, always charge them before they go to zero. By constantly charging them, they will serve you for longer, and give you value for money.
6. Don’t store them in direct sunlight
While vape batteries are designed to withstand high temperatures, constant exposure can lower their lifespan. To get the most out of your battery life, make sure to always store them in a cool dry place.
