Battery Safety Tips and Disclaimer

Rebuildable atomizer coils and wicks have known risks.

Rebuildable's are for experts, not average or beginner Vapours with no multimeter or knowledge of how to use a meter, or when a meter must be used, or how electronic devices work. These materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced or those without basic knowledge of electronics.

This is because:

  1. A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used.
  2. If it is not tested it is entirely the risk of the user.
  3. Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices.
  4. New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV that has short circuit protection.
  5. No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe.
  6. These items destroy electronic devices if faulty. This is a known issue.

   

Vape Battery Safety tips.

Knowledge of battery safety is essential in vaping, particularly removable batteries. Here are some of the fundamental points when using external batteries to achieve a safer vaping experience.

  • When not in use, always store batteries in a suitable protective case. This helps them from contacting each other which can cause a hazard.
  • Never use a battery which is damaged or features a damaged wrap. The risk just isn’t worth taking.
  • Try always to keep your batteries at a normal room temperature and never exposed to extreme hot or cold temperatures. Exposure to heat can cause a reaction in your batteries which will reduce their charge in the short term.
  • Always purchase batteries from a trusted source like Vapin Loud. Counterfeit batteries have a much higher risk of becoming faulty and causing harm.
  • This is an obvious one but never allow batteries to come into contact with water.
  • When charging, never leave batteries unattended. The chances of risk are minimal but once again, it’s just not worth the risk.
  • Don’t let loose batteries come into contact with anything metallic including spare change or keys. This usually happens when people shove batteries in their pockets without thinking, which can result in conductive materials colliding and causing a short circuit.
  • Check your battery’s amp limits, particularly when attempting to partner it with a new device or tank. No one wants an incompatible battery as it could end up in an easily avoidable accident.
  • Change Batteries every 6 months 

NOTE: Use special caution when working with Li-ion cells, they are very sensitive to charging characteristics and may explode or burn if mishandled. Make sure the user has enough knowledge of Li-Ion rechargeable batteries in charging, discharging and assembly before use. Always charge in/on a fire-proof surface. Never leave charging batteries unattended. We are not responsible for damage if there is any modification of the batteries/chargers in any form or shape (including pack making). We are not responsible for any damage caused by misuse or mishandling of Li-Ion batteries and chargers. We only recommend using Lithium Ion rechargeable batteries with a control circuit (protection PCB) to assure safe charge, discharge, etc, use of lithium ion batteries without a protection circuit is potentially hazardous. Batteries must not be older than 6 months
