There are several reasons why your vape battery might be dying so quickly. Overcharging, over-discharging, incorrect storage, low resistance atomizer coils, and wattage being set too high can all contribute to a vape battery not lasting as long as you might expect.
Let’s take a closer look at vape batteries and examine in detail some of the reasons for short battery life.
What are the different types of vape batteries?
Integrated vape batteries are integrated within the body of your device and cannot be removed. These are charged using an on-board USB port and usually feature pass-through charging, which means you can continue to vape while it is on the charge.
Removable vape batteries can be taken out of your device to charge them. Some can be charged within your vape using an on-board USB port, but it is normally advised to remove them and use an external charger.
No matter which type of vape battery you choose, your vape will either have settings to adjust, or it will be a simple press and go vaping.
If there are no settings to adjust it will have either a direct output or fixed output. This means you have no control over what power the battery provides. If there are settings to adjust it will either be variable voltage, variable wattage, variable temperature, or a combination.
Charging and overcharging your vape batteries.
Some common sense needs to be applied when we are talking about charging your battery. Only use a high-quality device purchased from a reputable supplier(www.fenixvaporizer.com)
Do not overcharge vape batteries. Leaving them on charge all day might seem like a good idea, it means you’re guaranteed to never be caught short with a cell with low voltage, but means you’ll massively reduce the overall lifespan of the cell. The two biggest enemies for overall cell lifespan if using lithium-ion batteries are being stored at the maximum voltage for sustained periods of time and excessive heat.
Discharging and over-discharging your vape batteries
When you buy a new phone or laptop, the instructions will tell you to fully charge your battery then drain it completely before recharging. This is because that type of battery has something called a ‘charge memory’ so you need to ‘train’ them. Modern vape batteries do not have this internal memory, therefore you do not need to fully deplete them.
Over discharging your battery is more damaging than overcharging it. If vape batteries are over-discharged it’s no longer safe for use and must be properly disposed of. Luckily, most modern vapes batteries how a minimum voltage cut off to prevent the cells from ever becoming over-discharged. This does not apply to mechanical mods however.
Storing your vape batteries
If you have an external battery and you need to store it outside of vape, remember to use an appropriate battery case or sleeve to stop any damage to the cell.
Note: Storing your vape batteries in a dedicated non-conductive package minimizes potential risks.
