- Never vape beyond amperage limit:
A vital safety rule - never exceeds the amp ratings of the battery while you vape. Your device may have the option to draw extra power, but it is not advisable to do so. The batteries may overheat and explode right next to your face. This safety precaution is not to be taken lightly, and we will give more explanation about it under the Ohms Law section.
- Know how to charge your mod:
Some devices provide ‘pass through’ charging capability in which you can vape and charge simultaneously. The charging ports of these devices are the USB ports, however, there are some miniature devices which are equipped with a mini USB port, used for software updates and not charging (they are charged by removing the batteries and plugging them into external chargers); be sure to check this fact!
- Buy compatible batteries:
Before buying batteries, make sure to read the instruction manual of your mod and choose the compatible option. There are a variety of battery types available in the market; including IMR, ICR, and LiPo, so make sure all the batteries are of the same type.
- Carry the batteries in a case:
Never carry mod batteries without a pouch or case. If left exposed, they can touch each other or other metallic objects to cause leakage or, possibly, an explosion.
- Be careful while charging:
Use original and compatible power adapters and USB cables. Don’t overcharge your mod or leave it connected to the power source for longer times. Once the battery is full, simply disconnect the device to avoid any sort of failure.
Don’t be stingy on buying your vape gear. Getting a good quality product is a one-time investment; and again, better to be safe than sorry! Avoid buying cheap or used items, especially when batteries are concerned. You never know what they may have gone through, and there’s no guarantee of safe operation. There are many good quality batteries available in the market, just go for them.
