Vaping is something new that has taken over both young and old. It is an innovative means of inhaling and it means that you are using an electronic device to inhale and exhale smoke.
Since we mentioned electronic devices, we also need to mention that this device by itself doesn’t produce anything but the current needed to make the juice inside turn into smoke. So, in combo with the device you will also need something called e-juice or cartridges with liquid inside that when heated enough, produces a vapor which users then inhale. These electronic devices are often called e-cigs, vapes, vape pens hookah pens and they most commonly contain nicotine or cannabis. The best thing about these is that whatever your poison of choice is, meaning nicotine or cannabis, you can get it in a variety of flavors all of which are incredibly appealing to both teens and adults. If you still haven’t found your vape your favorite flavor try OK Vapor!
OK, so we got the get-to-know part out of the way and we will address the issue from the title of this article. Since we mentioned that vaping means you need to have an electronic device and a cartridge inside, it also means that you will need to charge that device up from time to time for it to operate correctly. Batteries in vapes drain just as fast as in any other electronic product and to some this can be tedious. Today we will talk about some possible reasons that make your vape drain a lot faster than it should!
1. Running liquid too low
Most of you do not know this but if you run liquid inside your vape too low constantly you are damaging two components at once. First is your coils that are supposed to heat that liquid and turn it into vapour and the second is your battery that is running the coils but doesn’t produce the vapour. Coils are important just like your battery is and if you constantly run them on low liquid, they will burn out fast and make you an expense that is not needed. Also constantly heating coils that don’t produce anything, or enough means that you will drain your battery fast and you will not enjoy the product from your vape. These two things should work together in harmony for the best results so always keep in mind that you need to have enough liquid inside for the best results and to stop wasting your battery life.
2. Wrong liquid
You probably didn’t know this but you can use the wrong liquid in your vape. Every manufacturer of the vaping device has specified the ratio of VG and PG in the liquid you can use on that specific device. Running the liquid inside your vape with any other ratio that is specified may cause your battery to drain faster and your vape not produce the output you expect. The reason for this is that you can go either too thick of a liquid and make the device struggle burning more to produce less, causing battery drainage fast, or you can go with a lot less thick of a liquid and burn it swiftly without results.
Every vape, or kit you buy will always come with correct documentation that will tell you, straight up, how much and to which level you need to charge it to preserve the battery life of the device. Despite the documentation certain kits have, there is a general rule of thumb that users have discovered and it states that you should charge it with a 0.5 amp plug with some variants of the USB if it is a mouth to lung kit. DO not take iPhone or Samsung plugs because they are a minimum of 1 amp and this will ruin your battery life. So always use the correct charging plug and keep in mind how big is your battery inside your vape. Smaller batteries charge faster bigger take a bit longer, so keep that in mind as well. Using bigger plugs to charge your batteries, meaning any other that is over 0.5 amps will kill your batteries ability to hold a charge very soon, or you can have an issue where the battery malfunctions in total.
4. Forgetting to turn off your vape
Most vapes now have a built-in button that is supposed to be pressed whenever you are not using your vape. It is there to protect you from potential harm where your battery catches on fire or explodes, but it is also there to help you preserve your battery life when your vape is not in use. A lot of devices with a built-in battery have this cut-off switch that helps deactivate the device. If you, for instance, put this in your pocket or purse without activating this cut-off switch you will continually press the firing button and constantly heat the device for 6-8 seconds leading to unnecessary stress to the coil, device and most importantly, unnecessary drainage of your battery. So, if you want to stop draining your vape battery like insane, always remember to press that button whenever you are leaving it in your pocket or purse.
5. Authentic batteries
Another important thing when it comes to battery life, especially in vapes that don’t have a built-in battery, is that if you need to replace these for whatever reason, always use the authentic and high-quality ones. Those will be proprietary batteries for these devices and they will be made by LG, Sony, Samsung and similar. The batteries for this application are rated A, B, or C class and all the manufacturers that make these are rated A so keep that in mind if and when you go shopping for replacement ones. It is better not to sting on these mostly due to safety, but also because you do get a quality product that means a longer life and usage time while vaping.
So, after all, you read you can see that there are some things that you can do yourself to prolong the life of your vape battery and that there are some things that must be done according to the instructions of manufacturers. Whatever the issue you face try and consult both the manufacturers documentation or try to find your specific vaping device online and see if other users have some tips and tricks, besides the ones we listed, that helped them along the way.
