Safety instructions for e-cigarette batteries and chargers

Vapers must be very careful when charging and using all types of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, this includes built-in mod batteries.
Lithium-ion batteries pose serious safety concerns if misused, abused, or mishandled.
Please familiarize yourself with best practices and proceed with caution.

Please note – Li-Ion batteries can deliver very high currents
Beware – they can also discharge very quickly when short
Be careful – batteries can overheat, rupture or explode when discharged too quickly.
Extra Caution – Be careful not to overtighten threaded connections as this can cause damage

Do not leave the battery unattended while charging (disconnect if you are out or going to bed)
Do not heat, incinerate, or reverse the battery (do not place the battery in the wrong way)
Do not overcharge or over-discharge

Do not store batteries with keys or metal objects as this can cause a short circuit
Do not store batteries in pockets as they are more likely to come into contact with other metal objects and cause a short circuit
Do not use a charger that charges the battery with excessive current
Do not use batteries that show signs of peeling plastic wrap, as short circuits are more likely
Do not overtighten screw connections as this can cause damage

Be sure to remove the battery from the charger as soon as it is fully charged (usually when the light turns green)
Always follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and directions for your specific product

Discontinue use of the battery if it is not functioning properly, for example, if the battery fails to hold a charge or is damaged in some way
If you feel overheated, stop using the battery or
(equipment matching components)
In a fireproof charging bag or on a fireproof surface (never a flammable surface)
Pay special attention to the CE mark indicating that the charger complies with European safety standards
Clean the battery center pin and charger contacts at least once a week with a paper towel or rubbing alcohol
Battery Pairs – Make sure the batteries are of the same charge, “pair” the battery pairs to ensure the workload is evenly distributed
Regularly check the battery or battery area of the device for any signs of overheating, such as swelling or blistering, and stop using the device immediately if signs of overheating are apparent, no matter how small they may be
If any modification of any kind is made to the battery or charger, we will not be responsible for damage.
We are not responsible for any damage or injury caused by misuse, mishandling or mishandling of lithium-ion batteries and/or chargers.

new battery
All lithium vaping batteries need to be charged to stay healthy, so they are partially charged and ready to use.
When charging the battery for the first time, please make sure it is fully charged, it may take 4-5 hours, depending on the battery.
Do not overcharge the battery. When the battery is charged and the indicator light on the charger indicates that it is charged, please take the battery out of the charger.

Battery Safety Information
There are important notes about charging the battery
Make sure you have a quality charger
Always use the correct charger for the battery you are charging
Never leave battery unattended while charging, unplug before sleeping or going out
Do not charge the battery on flammable surfaces such as carpet or surfaces that may be damaged by heat
Unplug the battery when it is fully charged. It is best to let the battery sit for a few hours after charging
The battery cannot be completely drained of power. It is recommended that you charge the battery when the power is low, rather than completely dead
Can’t leave the battery completely dead when not in use – this renders the battery unusable

Do not heat or incinerate batteries
Cannot charge a damaged battery
If the battery becomes hot while charging, stop charging immediately and allow it to cool before further processing.
If you’re using a mod with a removable battery, the manufacturer usually recommends that it’s best to remove the battery and charge it separately, i.e. not in-place via USB.

How to Store and Care for Batteries
Proper storage of batteries can prolong their life and prevent them from becoming a safety hazard.
Store batteries away from metal objects, including items such as keys and coins (so avoid putting them in your pockets).
Store batteries in a dry, cool place not subject to extremes of temperature or humidity.
If you live in a hot area, you can store the battery in the refrigerator (but don’t freeze it). If you do this, you must seal them in a Ziploc bag to maintain proper moisture levels.

When storing lithium batteries for a period of time, it is best to keep them charged to around 40% charge – this minimizes degradation and allows the battery to slowly discharge itself, which is critical to its operational health.
Always keep the battery’s positive and negative terminals away from each other so they don’t sit idle and start conducting electricity.
Avoid storing old and new batteries together, as new batteries may conduct electricity to old batteries.
Dispose of batteries safely according to regulations (this may be a specific lithium-ion facility at a recycling center). Do not put them in the trash.

Regular cleaning of e-cigarette batteries is essential
Good cleaning contact between the e-cigarette battery and clearomizer/can is critical for optimal heat, vapor and flavor, so regular cleaning is essential (say every two weeks or so).
Rubbing alcohol/surgical alcohol on a Q-tip/cotton swab is ideal. Clean the outside and inside of the connection/contact area (for the eGo battery), making sure to turn the battery upside down so gravity can carry away any excess fluid. Use paper towels to dry the area if necessary.
For stubborn dirt, a cocktail stick fits perfectly in the threaded groove, be careful not to snap it inside the battery, but don’t use any metal.

Battery and charging issues – what could go wrong?
Batteries are tested before they leave the manufacturer, but that doesn’t mean there will never be faulty batteries in circulation. But if you’re having battery issues (and it’s relatively new), there are other issues to consider and iron out.
If you buy the battery from one source and the charger from another, there may be a compatibility issue, i.e. the battery thread and tank unit are slightly different sizes, or worse, the charger may not be what it was intended to be for you Charging specific e-cigarette batteries, there may be a voltage problem, so there is a serious safety risk.

There are inherent risks in using any battery
Use extreme caution when using vaping batteries as they are very sensitive to charging characteristics and can overheat or explode if mishandled or misused.
Users must ensure that they have sufficient knowledge and care in charging, discharging, assembling and storing.
