E-cigarettes use a rechargeable battery as their power source. Just like you would with your phone or laptop, it’s important to get familiar with your e-cigarette battery, so you know how to use it efficiently and safely.
Here, we tell you everything you need to know about charging your vape kit and tackle questions you might have about charging time, overheating, and battery replacement.
Yes. Just like the rechargeable battery in your phone, laptop, or camera, it’s possible to overcharge the battery in your vape. When you leave your battery plugged in long after it has finished charging, it can weaken the strength of the battery, making it less able to hold its charge and more susceptible to damage.
Always unplug your vape batteries as soon as they’ve finished charging to protect their longevity.
We wouldn’t recommend it. Just like any rechargeable battery, vape batteries are sensitive to overcharging. If you leave your e-cigarette batteries charging overnight, it could cause them to deteriorate in quality over time, meaning they won’t hold their charge as well, and they are at a higher risk of becoming damaged.
It depends on your vape. Some models have ‘pass-through’ capabilities, which means they will carry on charging while in use. However, it’s always important to check the manufacturer guidelines for information about whether it’s safe to use your particular vape while it’s charging.
Again, it depends on your vape and how often you use it. One charging period can last up to 2-3 days for certain models, while others will be significantly less. Smaller vapes tend to have smaller batteries, meaning they’re light and portable but likely won’t hold their charge for as long as the larger batteries that are fitted in bigger vapes.
Typically, rechargeable batteries are designed to last between 300-500 charging cycles, which can equal out to 1-2 years, depending on how much you use your e-cigarette. As a rough guide, consider replacing your batteries once a year.
Just like any battery, if you don’t maintain your e-cigarette batteries correctly, there is a risk of overheating or leakage. Overcharging can put a strain on the battery, causing it to overheat or crack. Leaving batteries out when not in use can also expose them to damage. Luckily, these are easy things to avoid – don’t charge your vape batteries for any longer than necessary and keep them stored in a case when not in use.
