E-cigarette batteries are the most common cause of injury to electronic smokers.
The reason for this is simple. E-cigarettes are more powerful than regular cigarettes and can deliver more nicotine into your body with each puff. If used improperly, they can also cause burns or even fires.
But there are ways to make sure that you don't burn yourself or set your clothes on fire when using e-cigarettes. Here are eight tips on how to stay safe while vaping
Do use manual batteries, not auto batteries.
E-cigarettes use rechargeable lithium ion batteries. These are the same types of batteries that power many electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones, tablets and other electronic cigarettes.
Do use manual batteries, not auto batteries. Auto batteries can be dangerous if they overheat or short circuit. Manual batteries have safety features built in that prevent overheating and short circuiting. If you do choose a battery with an automatic cutoff feature, make sure it is set to a temperature high enough to prevent overheating of your atomizer and e-liquid.
Do not store your e-cigarette in extreme temperatures (hot or cold). Extreme temperatures can damage your battery and cause it to short circuit or catch fire. Avoid leaving your batteries in direct sunlight and never leave them in a hot car where they could overheat. Keep them away from heat sources like candles or lamps as well.
Don’t leave batteries charging unattended, especially overnight or for a long period of time
This is because the batteries can overheat and explode while they are charging. This can cause fires or burns. Always make sure that you have a fire extinguisher nearby when you are charging your e-cigarette batteries.
If you notice any heat coming off of the battery or charger, stop using it immediately and unplug it from the wall.
Do use portable charging devices that only charge one battery at a time.
Do not leave your e-cigarette unattended while charging it. If you are going to be away from your device while it is charging, unplug the charger from the outlet and remove the battery from the device before leaving.
Do not leave batteries in your pocket or purse unless they are protected by a case. This will prevent them from coming into contact with other metal objects that could cause sparks during normal activity such as walking or sitting down.
Do not carry loose lithium ion batteries in your pocket or bag where they could short circuit against other metal objects like coins, keys and pens that can cause sparks when they come in contact with other metal objects like coins, keys and pens.
Don’t buy from unknown vendors and make sure that when you do buy batteries they are labeled with their specifications.
Batteries are the most important part of any e-cigarette device. Without a good battery, your device will not work properly and could even be dangerous to use.
When choosing your batteries, make sure that they are from a reputable manufacturer and have been tested for safety before being sold to the public. It is also very important that you check the date on the label of your battery; if it is older than six months it may not be able to hold its charge as well as newer ones.
If you are using an automatic battery, it is important that your charger has been tested for safety by an independent organization such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL). This ensures that there is no risk of electric shock when charging your e-cigarette battery.
Do always carry your spare e-cigarette batteries in a case to keep them separate from loose change, keys and other metal objects.
Always charge your e-cigarette batteries on a flat surface and never leave them unattended while charging.
Always remove the battery from an e-cigarette when not in use.
Use only the correct charger provided with your e-cigarette or one approved by the manufacturer of your battery.
If you are using a mod that is built to be used with sub ohm tanks or rebuildable atomizers, always ensure that you have the appropriate knowledge before using these devices and their respective coils/wicks.
Never use damaged or recalled batteries in any vaping device.
Don’t put loose change in the same pocket with your e-cig battery since this may cause a short circuit.
When you are not using your e-cig, make sure it is turned off and always keep it dry. Do not charge your e-cigarette while it is wet or if it has been dropped into water. If your e-cigarette has been exposed to water, allow it to dry thoroughly before you attempt to use it again.
Do inspect your batteries before using them to ensure that there is no damage to the wrapping and there is no sign of cracking or leaking.
If you notice any of these problems, stop using the battery at once, as there may be a risk of explosion.
Make sure when charging your battery, you charge it with the correct charger designed specifically for that particular battery type (eg: 18650 charger). Do not overcharge a battery as this can shorten its life and also cause damage to other components in the device.
Always store your batteries in a cool dry place away from sunlight or excessive heat. Never leave your batteries unattended while charging them, especially overnight! If you do not use your e-cigarette for an extended period of time (more than 30 days), remove the battery and store it somewhere safe until you are ready to use it again.
Don't charge your battery with any charger other than ones designated by the manufacturer – don’t even use a different type of charger produced by the same company.
Use only a charger that has been approved by the manufacturer.
Always charge your E-cigarette batteries in a safe place and out of reach of children or pets. There have been instances where people have left their E-cigarettes charging overnight and they have caught fire while they were sleeping, causing extensive damage to their homes and possessions.
Make sure that you are using the right charging cable for your battery and ensure that it is fully charged before use. If you notice that your battery is getting warm when you are charging it then there should be an indication that something is wrong with either your charger, battery or both.
If you follow these rules, you will be able to safely use e-cigarettes!
E-cigarette battery safety is important. If you follow these rules your e-cigarette batteries will stay secure and you won't have to worry about anything going wrong. Familiarize yourself with your e-cig batteries so that you know what they look like and how much charge they hold before charging them. Don't use third party chargers for your e-cig batteries if you want to be safe. It's always a good idea to make sure that your charger is place when you plug it in. Be careful vaping around children and pets, because it may not be safe for them! And read all materials carefully before using liquid nicotine, because even just a little can cause serious injuries if you don't follow instructions.
There are obviously risks associated with working with E-cig batteries. If you get them wet and they get little zap of electricity traveling through them in the process, you could get really burned (pun intended) if it comes into contact with your skin. That's why it is important to always use double-layer gloves whenever you handle a battery whether you're charging it, or it's just been used for a vaping session. The fume from these batteries can also be dangerous, so be sure to keep your distance from their heat. One last piece of advice: never charge batteries overnight because things can start to catch on fire if they remain unused during this time.
