How to Choose the Best E-Cigarette Batteries?
When buying the e-cigarette batteries, there are some important points that you must always keep in mind. Doing so will help you get the most out of them and enjoy long-lasting pleasure. These points are:
Quality of the battery – Your e-cigarette battery is what is going to keep your e-cig running. It is the component which will deliver the throat hit, taste, vapour and the overall e-smoking experience. Therefore, selecting a wrong battery can automatically translate into an overall poor e-smoking experience. If the quality of your e-cigarette battery is not up to the mark, it may even make you give up the idea of using electronic cigarettes! Hence, pay a lot of attention to the quality of your e-cig battery.
Automatic or manual – The manual or button based e-cigarette batteries make sure that you don’t waste any battery life. These normally turn on only when you press the provided button. Many e-smokers forget pressing this button and thus don’t get anything to inhale. In the end, it is only a matter of personal preference. If you can be careful about the button use, you may actually get a lot of mileage from your e-cigarette battery.
Compatibility – Please keep in mind that not every charger will work with your batteries, and not every cartridge is compatible with all the e-cig batteries. In fact, many of the e-cigarettes we have reviewed on this website are not compatible with products of other brands. Most of the brands prefer keeping their products unique or different, as it helps them increasing their sales volume. Hence, always buy a brand or a battery which is compatible with different cartridges, or the other way round.
Charging options – E-cigarette batteries can be charged in many different ways and you should ensure that the battery you buy should provide you with all the best charging options. The best e-cigarette batteries can be charged with charging cases, USB chargers, car chargers, squid USB chargers, straight USB chargers, main chargers and more. The squid charger in particular has design characteristics which ensure that you don’t end up damaging it. It doesn’t stick out of the USB port of the laptop or computer and hence is less prone to damage.
2/3 piece design – Although there are pros and cons of both the design types, our experience says that 2 piece battery designs are much easier to handle in everyday situations.
USB e-cigarettes – These types of e-cigarettes are really worth considering if you’re someone who spends a lot of time in front of his/her laptop or computer every day, and prefers chain puffing while putting in all the mental hard work. While in case of a regular e-cigarette, you may not be able to use it while it’s getting charged, with USB e-cigarettes, all you need to do is plug them in and start puffing away as and when needed.
Maintenance – Please keep in mind that all electronic items require a certain degree of maintenance and the same is applicable to e-cigarettes. Failing to take care of or preserve the e-cigarette battery you’ve purchased may make your investment a total waste of hard earned money. Always make sure that you give ample time to your battery to cool down when you’ve had those 8 to 10 long drags. Furthermore, ensure that your e-cigarette battery is kept away from all magnetic devices as they can interfere with the e-cigarette’s internal components, resulting in malfunction. These are all some basic and standard maintenance rules when it comes to e-cigarettes, but some brands make it necessary for the users to follow certain unique instructions. Hence, never ignore the small print when buying e-cigarettes and make sure you follow all the instructions.
Warranty – Ensure that you never avoid reading the warranty details of the brand or company that you are buying your electronic cigarettes and batteries from. Many companies offer a twisted version of lifetime warranties. It’s only when you look at the finer details you discover that the actual battery replacement may work out to be more costly than buying a new one. Although these terms and conditions may appear boring in print, it is always helpful to go through them so that you are aware of the bigger picture and don’t feel cheated later.
All in all, you should do everything to ensure that you get the most from your e-cigarette batteries.
