E-cigarette battery prices aren’t exactly prohibitive, but with having to regularly buy clearomizers / atomisers and of course ejuice, costs will add up faster than you can imagine. Fortunately, there are few things you can do to make sure you get the most life out of your battery before replacing it. Here are few useful tips to help you boost battery life, optimise your cost savings and enjoy your vaping experience even more.

1.Use your battery frequently. 

The battery is designed for frequent use, and the more you use it the easier it is for the power to flow through the cells. Leaving the battery unused for long periods can make it more difficulty (and less efficient) for power to move through the cells. To increase efficiency and prolong the life span of your battery, make sure you run it at least every other day to keep the cells active. 

 2. Unplug the battery once fully charged.

When you’ve finished charging, take your battery from the charger as soon as is possible. Doing this will ensure no overcharging of the battery, which can normally over work the battery and dramatically reduce its life. The only time that it’s recommended to leave the battery on charge for an extra hour or so is when you’re charging the battery for the very first time. See how to properly charge your ecig battery here. 

3. Charge your battery before it dies. 

This is why many vapers keep a rotation of batteries on hand for their e-cig. Waiting until the battery is fully drained before plugging it into a charger will most certainly reduce its life. Ideally, you should recharge your battery when you begin to notice a loss in power. 

4. Unscrew the clearomizer / atomizer when not in use. 

It’s always advisable to remove the atomizer from the battery when you won’t be using it for a long period of time. While the atomiser is connected to the battery its always going to be draining that little bit of eliquid, even when not in use. That is why removing the atomizer from the battery increases the time between charges. In turn extending the number of recharges you’ll be able to do which will, therefore, increase the time in which a new battery will need to be purchased.

5. Keep the threads and atomizers clean. 

Over time, residue can build up, and the connections can get dirty or even moist. Both can ruin your ecig battery. Use cotton buds, cotton wool pads or alcohol wipe to constantly clean and dry the contacts where the battery and atomizer connect together.

6. Be careful where you keep your battery.

While this may seem like common sense, we sometimes get careless and don't think about how something may be harming our devices. In regards to e-cig batteries, direct sunlight and heat can dramatically affect their lifespan.  And we all know how electricity and water don't mix, so keep your battery away from water. You should also be mindful of any impacts, and protect your e-cig battery from being dropped or otherwise sustaining a big hit.
