Regulated mods can come with batteries that are sealed into the device, such as the iStick series. These are usually lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries and can come in a variety of shapes. These are often called disposable, as once the internal battery reaches the end of its lifespan (approximately 2-3 years) they cannot be easily replaced.
Battery Safety Information
Vaping is both Fun and safe , it is more than worth it to educate yourself on the proper use and storage of batteries so you can maximize both battery use and personal safety in regards to personal vaporizers
Battery Safety Tips*
- Never leave batteries out unattended
- Keep away from Children!
- Never put 18650 batteries loosely in your pockets with keys
- Keep an eye on batteries charging on external charger
- If any unfamiliar marks or dents appear, contact your local vape shop immediately, and see if you should replace the battery.
- Handle your mod with care. The protection around these LiPo batteries is little more than an aluminium foil case, meaning a knock can cause serious damage. If you drop your mod, place it in a sealed metal container immediately, in case the internal batteries vent, then take them to be recycled as soon as possible.
- Don’t cut corners. Always purchase authentic items from authorised dealers, and never buy second-hand if you aren’t sure about the quality. That cheap mod might seem like a bargain but if it hasn’t gone through the proper tests it could prove to be a costly mistake.
- Use the correct coils. Most mods have a limit to what kind of ohms coil they can use. Check the manual to see the range, and never go below this. This is especially important when it comes to sub ohm vaping.
- Store safely. Never leave your mod resting on a pillow or flammable material. For extra safety, it’s recommended to unscrew the tank from the mod if leaving it overnight. Avoid leaving it in direct sunlight, such as on a windowsill or car dashboard, as it could heat your device to a dangerous level.
- Use the correct charging cable. If your device charges using a USB cable, make sure the power output match your mod. If your charger has a higher voltage than your battery, you could overheat the battery or short the device. The best option is to use the cable you got with your product.
- Don’t overcharge. Most well-made mods have a cut-off point where they stop charging when they reach full power. However this function has been known to fail on rare occasions, leading to them setting on fire. Only charge your device where you can keep watch on it, and never charge overnight.
- Dispose of dead batteries safely. As with all kinds of batteries, once the batteries have reached the end of their natural life they should be put in a dedicated recycling bin. These can be found in most supermarkets.
