E-Cigarette Batteries: How to Make Them Last Longer

We all wish our electronic cigarette batteries lasted longer, don’t we? It seems that we are just unscrewing it from the charger for a few moments before we are having to recharge it again and before you know it, you have charged it so many times that you now need to send it away and make use of that “lifetime warranty” that these e-cig companies keep coming out with, that aren’t really lifetime warranties at all!

Thankfully there are a few tricks of the trade that you can use to make your e-cig battery last longer. It just takes professionals like us to educate you on how to do it.

That’s what we are about to do!

There are a few things that you can do to ensure that your e-cig battery lasts as long as it should do. There are things that will sway your e-cigarette smoking experience with batteries,of course.

For example, the way that you puff on your e-cig can make a difference to how long it lasts as well as how often you use it. You will find that it will last much longer if you use it as you normally would a “real” cigarette – popping out for the odd smoke break here and there. The more you use it, the quicker the battery will drain. The quicker it drains, the more often you are going to need to charge it and the more you need to do this, the faster you are going to wear your battery out.

  • Also, rather than relying on your battery to die before you order another one or send off for a replacement, why not make sure that you always have a spare still in the packaging if necessary? We suggest that you should have a minimum of two to get started with when you first use e-cigs but in reality, you are probably going to want to have three just in case something goes wrong.
  • Before you charge your battery, are you sure that it is really dead? If you are constantly whacking your e-cig back in the charger when it starts to fade in power, there is a good chance that you are not letting it fully drain before you plug it in. This means that the memory of the battery will cause it to charge only a bit, not the full amount. For example, if you repeatedly plug your e-cig in while it still has 25% of the battery life left, it will only charge 75%. Even when your e-cig battery has run out completely, the memory will only charge it to 75% again – you won’t get a full charge and therefore you will be charging it more frequently.

Try to make sure that your battery is dead before you charge it up!

  • When you first get your hands on the e-cig, you should probably throw it on a good charge straight away. You will find that the average battery will take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to fully charge. We are sure you can manage this before you start using it. Some cigs, for example Blu Cigs, come with 40% battery or more, but you should always try to charge it up first before you use it to get the battery off to a good start. Remember what we said about that memory…?
  • Larger batteries may cost more and be longer in your hand but they will last longer and have more power stored within them. This means that you will be charging them less often, and they will therefore last longer. It might be worth looking at those premium batteries after all, even though they are more expensive to buy.
  • When you charge your battery, you should make sure that you are not over-charging. As we have mentioned, the average e-cigarette will take less than an hour to fully charge so if you are leaving it plugged in overnight, you are over-charging it. Using Blu Cig as an example, their charging packs that come with the Premium and Premium 100 e-cigs have indicators on the side so that you know the status of the charging and you won’t ever over-charge again.

We hope these tips will help to point you in the right direction for the perfect e-cigarette journey. With the right care and attention, your e-cigarette should last the distance and before you know it, you will be healthier than you have ever been before. Just take care of your kits boys and girls, and they will take care of you!
