Rechargeable batteries are a great, modern alternative to AA and AAA batteries, because they don’t have to constantly be replaced. However, they can still run completely out of power and need to be replaced, which can be a little pricey. For this reason, many people would like to know how to keep their rechargeable batteries lasting longer, instead of having to replace them every so often. When it comes to e-cigarettes, there are several things you can do to help ensure that you are getting the most out of your e-cigarette's battery life.
The first, and perhaps easiest, way to make sure your vape’s battery lasts a while is to make sure that you’re not overcharging it. When a device’s battery is charging, it should not charge past the time that it reaches 100% charge. By charging it longer, you are essentially working the battery harder, which reduces its overall life. However, when you first get your device, it is recommended that you charge it a little extra, so this is an exception to this rule.
Another way that you can make sure that you are getting the most out of your device’s battery is to simply be careful of where you store your battery and how you store it. Leaving a battery in extreme heat, direct sunlight, or exposure to water will greatly reduce its life. It is also important to not store your battery when it is less than half charged. If you are going to store your battery for an extended period, try to ensure that it is fully charged.
The last way that you can maximize your battery life is to unplug the cartomizer from the battery after every use. The cartomizer is the part that contains the heating element and the nicotine, and it is always draining the battery's charge a little bit, even if it is not in use. By unplugging it, you will help to extend the battery's life by extending the time in between charges.
While batteries shouldn’t have to be replaced frequently, following these brief tips can help make those replacements even less frequent.
