Battery Safety Tips

What type of batteries are used in vaping?

The vape industry is exploding in popularity, but it’s important to remember that the devices rely on battery power. There are many different types of batteries used for vaping, and some require extra care when handling them. This blog post will discuss what you need to know about battery safety in the vaping industry.

There are three main types of batteries that vape devices rely on: 18650, 20700 and 21700. Each class has advantages and disadvantages to consider as you’re shopping for a vape pen or mod.

The most common battery used in vaping is the 18650 model. You can find these inside all kinds of devices, from vape pens to mods.

20700 and 21700 models are quickly becoming more popular as vaping technology advances. So you can expect your next device to use one of these batteries if it doesn’t already.

If your device allows, always use the 20700 or 21700 battery over a 18650 model. These larger batteries provide longer run times and more power than their smaller counterpart. The added benefits make them a popular choice among vapers who want to get the most out .of their devices.

Lithium-Ion Batteries

About Lithium-ion Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are the most common type of rechargeable battery for electronics. Millions use them every day without issue, but that doesn’t mean they’re risk-free! There have been many cases where these lithium-ion powered devices caught fire or exploded due to overcharging – even if you don’t see smoke coming out your device’s charging port. It turns out protection circuits can fail, too, which would lead us back into unsafe territory should anything happen like short-circuiting during charge time (which does exist!). So before relying on any electronic gadget, always make sure to take note of what charger it uses and examine whether there is an Overcharge Protection Design implemented internally.

What are battery Mah and Amps?

A milliampere-hour or MAh for short can be used as a unit of energy. It’s the standard by which batteries are measured and determines how much power they have over one hour when delivering 1000 mA (1 amp). So, for example, A battery with a 1000mAh capacity would provide 100 watts before exhausting itself entirely after an hour of use.

How to identify the right Amps level for my battery

Here’s how you can calculate the maximum amp level for charging your battery. First, take the mAh rate of your device and move it three points on its left side. For example, 3500mAh becomes 3 amps (the allowed amount).

What do I need to know about storing Lithium batteries safely

  • Buying a battery from an unknown company can be risky. Therefore, you should always purchase products from companies that have been in business for years and offer excellent customer service, such as Herbaltides.
  • Excessively hot or cold temperatures are bad for batteries/cells. Make sure to store them in a cool place, so they don’t get damaged!
  • Batteries can leak and cause a fire, so don’t leave them in your car.
  • Batteries/cells are dangerous if they’re in your pocket, bag or purse because of leakage. They can cause a fire! So please don’t do it–it’ll only end badly for you and those around you as well.
  • For the safety of your cells, always keep them in an approved cell case when not in use.
  • Cleaning your batteries will help keep them working for longer. Ensure that they are dry before putting them away, so the corrosion doesn’t spread and affect other parts of the device you use it in!
  • Don’t store your batteries or cells near anything metal! (Keys/Money). Batteries and metals don’t mix, so you might as well make sure never to put yourself in this position.
  • Don’t place batteries/cells in your pockets. The risk of accidental activation is too high.
  • Avoid leaving your batteries or devices in direct sunlight.
  • For optimum performance, it is necessary to charge and discharge the cells or batteries several times.
