If you find yourself always having to charge your vape pen, and if your battery isn’t what it used to be when you bought it, you might be interested in finding out some of the best ways to make your vape battery last longer, and improve its overall health.
If you want to avoid replacing your vape pen batteries all the time, here are some of the best ways you can make them last longer:
1. First Charging Time
The first important step you need to do when buying a new vape pen is to let the battery drain completely and once it’s dead, you can go ahead and charge it for the first time.
This will allow you to get the most out of your new battery.
Although not an issue with phones and other similar devices, vape pen batteries can actually overcharge.
Most of us have a habit of leaving our phone on the charger overnight, so we can have it fully charged by the time we wake up, and even though it will be plugged in for hours after it’s fully charged, this won’t affect the battery’s life, nor will it overcharge.
When it comes to vape pen batteries, the case is a bit different, and charging overnight while you’re sleeping should be avoided so as not to overcharge the battery and affect its longevity.
3. Daily Use
When it comes to daily use of your device, there are a few simple steps that you can follow that will help you extend your battery’s life:
- Try to use your device every day, to maintain its performance and keep it functioning properly
- Turn off your device after each use
- Don’t drain your battery until its dead; try to charge it when it’s at least at 50%
- When you want to store away your device for a longer period of time, make sure you fully charge your battery beforehand
- Keep your battery and your device clean
4. Charging While Vaping
Although charging while vaping is possible and available on some models, it’s not safe for all vaporizers.
Some devices, for example, use external batteries which can become uneven in power consumption, and add stress to the batteries and the vaporizer unit.
Although many manufacturers offer this feature, they also advise that pass-through charging is not healthy for the battery and may shorten its lifespan.
5. Using Other Chargers
Using other chargers, such as your phone or car charger is possible, but not really advisable.
Using a charger that puts out more power than your device’s battery can handle is a sure way to damage or even permanently destroy your battery.
In some cases your vape pen may require more power than your charger can provide, which will end up not working as well. In this case you might just overheat your charger and you still won’t be able to successfully charge your vape pen.
If you still want to use your phone charger to charge your vape pen, check out the specifications on both charging devices in order to determine if they are a good fit.
There is no such thing as a perfect device. Sooner or later they all need replacing, but it can be up to you to decide how soon that will happen.
If you follow these few simple tips, you’ll be able to extend your battery’s life and utilize your vaporizer to the max.
