How Many Batteries Do I Need for My E-Cigarette?

Wednesday, 4 May 2016  |  Admin

We’ve all been there. The TV remote has run out of batteries, there’s no spares in the house and ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ has just come on the screen. You scramble around, frantically emptying your brother’s old Game Boy or the kitchen clock in search of replacements. Who needs to tell time anyway?

As with any battery powered device, you’ll want to know how many batteries you need and how they work within an e-cigarette – no one wants to be caught without power.

Just to be clear, when we say e-cigarette we don’t mean any old vaping device – we’re referring specifically to e-cigs or cigalikes, the smaller vapes which resemble traditional cigarettes in shape and size. If you’re still unsure of the difference, click here!

Sense-ational

E-cigarettes tend to use automatic batteries. When you inhale on your e-cigarette, a sensor detects this pull and activates the battery – so the act of you inhaling triggers the e-cig to work, just like a real cigarette.

Batteries

An automatic battery isn’t as powerful as a manual, something often found in other devices such as vape mods. It is, however, easy to use and allows you to replicate the experience of smoking more realistically, as the e-cig is activated by you inhaling alone and not by pressing a button. Automatic batteries also usually have shorter charging time. 

Take Charge

Just like your mobile phone, e-cigarette batteries need re-charging or replacing after a while. You’ll know when the battery is in need of a boost or change as your vapour production will start to decline. No one wants to produce half-hearted clouds - time to remove the battery and pop it on charge!

How often you’ll need to charge your e-cig battery depends on a variety of factors, such as how often you use your device and the size of your battery. 

Power to You

So the e-cig battery is charging away...but hang on, what if I want to continue using my electronic cigarette? Whether you need to stifle a nicotine craving or just fancy a puff of flavour vapour, being unable to use your device due to lack of charge can be really frustrating.

That’s why, in answer to the question of how many batteries do you need for your e-cigarette, we’ll say this: you can never have too many! Having spare batteries is always useful. Many vapers choose to have several batteries to hand which can be used in rotation, keeping one on charge and swapping it over when it’s ready. That way, you can continuously use your e-cig and will never be caught without power.

It’s also useful to carry spare batteries when using your e-cig on the go and away from home, when you can’t guarantee access to a wall plug outlet or USB port to charge your device.
