The batteries used in vapes are typically high discharge Li-ion batteries – they can provide an incredible amount of current in a very short period of time. Like any other powerful batteries, do not leave them in the sun, car, anywhere they can overheat. This can cause damage to the battery and they could eventually vent (explode, start a fire).

Read the manual and use the correct voltage/amp plug for your vape and the cable that comes with it. Do not leave your vape plugged in and unattended. Do not leave it plugged in too long once it is fully charged.

Only use good quality brand batteries (e.g. Samsung, Sony, LG, etc) and use the correct batteries for your mod. Some manufacturers recommend, for example, minimum, 25 amp batteries. Follow the manufacturers’ recommendations. Using lower amp batteries can put stress on and damage batteries.

Use BATTERY CASES for your spare batteries

Do not store or transport batteries without a case. Batteries can die at some point during the day, so many people carry extra charged batteries. The batteries in your regulated mod have a bit of safety provided by the mod, but your spare batteries DO NOT! Loose external batteries pose a major safety hazard, as it is possible that the positive and negative terminals of the batteries may be shorted by keys or other metallic objects. Shorted batteries will catch fire or explode. Lack of battery safety is the number ONE source of injuries to vapers (especially burns and burnt clothing and more).

Never use damaged batteries or batteries with scratched/damaged wraps. Do not use batteries that are scratched or damaged in any way. Exposed batteries are extremely dangerous – stop using them until you get them re-wrapped.

Always keep all your spare batteries in a battery case.



If your device uses multiple 18650 batteries– only use married batteries in it. Married batteries are the same type of battery, which was bought at the same time, from the same batch which has always been discharged and charged together. If you use unmarried batteries in a multiple battery device you risk either damaging the device or venting the batteries.


There are not the same overcharge protections with onboard vape charging as there are with an external charger.

Most manufacturers actually recommend you use an external charger.

  • Safety:
    You want a charger that will handle your batteries safely. You’re dealing with high-discharge batteries with a lot of power and care should be used handling them. Some vapers buy the cheapest 18650 chargers they can because they believe they are all the same. While saving the money might be nice, these cheap chargers often do not have the over-charge protection that the more expensive/name brand ones do have. Quality chargers will also lengthen the overall life of your batteries as well.
  • Your mod:
    With some mods, the charge actually goes through the computer chip in the mod before getting to the batteries, so the mod itself can get damaged in the long term.
  • Accuracy:
    Quality chargers have overcharging protection and other safety features for your batteries. Overcharging is unacceptable and bad for the long-term life of your batteries.
