How to Charge an E-Cigarette

Tuesday, 3 May 2016  |  Admin

So, you want to know how to charge your e-cigarette? Luckily there's not much to it, if you follow this step-by-step guide you can't go wrong: Step 1: size up your e-cig from across the room. Step 2: run as fast as you can, straight at your e-cig. This should cause it to back down, thereby asserting your dominance.

Oh, that's not what you meant? Fear not, charging your e-cigarette is as simple as it gets, so long as you use your head and make sure you're using the right equipment. 

How to Charge an E-Cigarette

The actual charging process is very easy. E-cigs can be charged from the mains, or from your laptop/any other compatible device via a usb, depending on the model. Here's how to charge your device:

  1. Unscrew the battery from the tank/cartridge
  2. Connect the battery to the charger (make sure it's the right charger for that particular e-cigarette)
  3. Keep charging until the indicator light goes off/changes colour (depending on model)

Chargers

Sound good so far? Well, that's about it as far as the method of charging your e-cig goes. Battery life will vary with the different models, but generally if you have a 'cigalike' resembling a regular cigarette it won't have too much battery life so you'll have to charge it more frequently, while mods with larger batteries will give you more bang for your buck. 

Safety Concerns

Like with anything that uses electricity, you need to keep your wits about you when charging your e-cig battery. Here are a few things to consider:

  • Don't leave your e-cig charging overnight/for long periods unsupervised - As several people can attest, there are significant dangers if you ignore the instructions on your charger, and leave it to charge overnight. Leaving your battery on charge for too long can cause it to overheat, which is never good news. Several fires have been started, and injuries caused, by this carelessness. 
  • Don't use an incompatible/unreliable charger - using an unbranded charger, or one that's from an unknown company, is a risk that should never be taken. The quality of the charger may not have been tested so there's a risk that too much current could go into the batteries, with potentially explosive results.
  • Don't use mobile phone adaptors - these adaptors give out a lot more power than an e-cig needs, so this could have similar consequences to using an unbranded charger.

Ease of Use

You might be thinking that this sounds like more hassle than smoking cigarettes, but in reality there's really not much to it, and to keep smoking when the benefits of vaping seem clear would be unwise. If you plan ahead, and/or have a few chargers then there's no reason why you can't be ready to go at all times. Charging your battery seems a much better option than being charged for another pack of cigarettes!
