Following safety measures in the use of vape batteries is a serious matter because the careless handling of vape batteries can result in explosions and fires, which can cause serious damage to people and property. For this reason, it is of crucial importance that all vapers, beginners and pro, understand the risks of improper battery handling.
First, you need to understand why the batteries in your vape pen or portable vaporizer are different from the rest, and how you can protect yourself from them.
What Is Special About A CBD Vape Pen Battery?
The batteries in your CBD vape pen or portable vaporizer are lithium-ion batteries, very similar to those used by other electronic devices, such as your mobile phone or computer. The essential difference is in the amount of energy produced by your vape pen batteries and how that energy is used.
In your computer or mobile phone, the lithium-ion battery is used to provide power to turn on the screen and connect to the internet, and even under the most complex functions, these devices demand low power demands. On the other hand, a vape pen needs a lot of power, in a short time, to heat the coil and vaporize the CBD oil.
The lithium-ion batteries inside your CBD vape pen are primarily designed for high power consumption, and instead of being used for a closed and controlled diode or pixel system, like those of mobile phones, all that energy is thrown onto a resistor open and unprotected in just an instant. Therein lies the risk.
What Can You Do to Vape Safely?
Now that you understand how lithium-ion batteries work, the following is a series of tips to avoid accidents while vaping.
Buy Batteries from Recognized Brands
There are a lot of brands of high-consumption lithium-ion batteries available. However, not all are manufactured under the same quality standards. If you should receive a battery with a visible defect, or have any suspicion that it could be damaged, do not use it. Always buy batteries from leading brands, made for use in vape pens.
Buy CBD Vape Pens with Security Features and Functions
Currently, almost all modern portable vaporizers incorporate security systems such as short circuit protection, overheating protection, 8-second protection (in case you leave it on and keep it in your pocket), anti-leakage systems, etc. These features will protect you from any potential explosion or dangerous situation while vaping.
Use A Case for Your Battery
The benefit of having a device that uses removable batteries is that you can vape with ease all day without worrying about running out of battery since you can always carry spare batteries with you.
However, when you keep batteries in your pocket next to coins, keys, and other metal objects, the batteries can get damaged, and this could lead to unfortunate incidents. For this reason, it is advisable to always carry your batteries in a protective case to prevent them from coming into contact with other metals. This way, you will avoid exposing yourself to unnecessary risks.
Buy A Smart Battery Charger
The main cause of vaping accidents due to battery damage occurs in the charging process, and not during use. This is because many people charge their batteries and abandon them, leaving them to charge for hours or even days.
If your charger is not smart, that is, it does not know when the battery is fully charged and continues to let power pass, your batteries will overheat, bulge and possibly explode.
Although we recommend that you charge the batteries during the day while you can keep an eye on the charging process, to be on the safe side, it would be better to buy a smart charger that turns off when your battery is full.
Don’t Forget Your Vape Batteries in The Car
Not just in the car, don’t leave your vape batteries anywhere where they are exposed to high temperatures. Leaving your vape batteries in your car for a long time, on a hot day, is exposing yourself to unnecessary danger.
For example, if you go to the beach, put your batteries in a bag and keep them in the shade, or better, in an airtight bag inside the fridge to keep them at a cooler temperature. Also, protect them from water and humidity as they can destroy your batteries.
