E-Cig Batteries: Technologically Amazing, Technically Awesome

eversmokeInHandE-cigarettes are powered by batteries, and the majority of these are lithium ion, meaning they are made of lithium and carbon. Considered by many to be the best for their powerful output and lightweight construction, they are the lifeblood and brainpower behind even the most advanced electronic cigarettes.

In addition to being a source of power, e-cigarette batteries contribute a lot of the overall experience of vaping. They are typically the main component of the e-cigarette, meaning the body of the device it usually the battery itself. They come in two different switch styles, Manual (turns on with a switch) and Automatic (no switch, automatic turn-on), and both e-cig styles offer benefits to the user depending on what they want in an e-cig battery.

Lithium ion batteries have not been in existence a tremendously long time; they were first introduced to the market in 1997. A more modern type of battery, unlike older styles which required a metal case, lithium ion batteries can be housed in more flexible casings, enabling them to fit specific devices.

Lithium ion batteries are loaded with benefits, and very few downfalls, which is another reason they are awesome for e-cigarettes. They can hold a charge for a very long time, they boast a light weight, they are very powerful holding a great amount of stored energy, and they can handle hundreds of charging and discharging cycles.

As for negatives, there are a few you have to contend with when using lithium ion e-cigarette batteries. For starters, they have a shelf life; they literally begin degrading once they exit the factory, whether they are used or not. You can expect them to last between two and three years however, so even though they do not last forever, they will last a while. Other negatives include the fact that they are typically more expensive batteries, and they have a sensitivity to heat which can be their demise.

If you’re stumped on what e-cigarette battery switch style to go with, have a look at our article on the subject.

When it comes to vaping, users have many choices with their lithium ion e-cig batteries, from switch style to color, size, and brand. They are the best types of batteries for vaping and their many benefits outweigh the few negatives: powerful, long lasting, and very versatile make them the top choice of power when it comes to e-cigarettes.

The Importance of Protecting E-Cig Batteries from Heat

hot-summer-rays-of-the-sun

Sometimes it can feel like you need advanced degree to keep our phones, P.D.A.’s and laptops working. According to findings by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), lithium-ion batteries perform at their best if kept at temperatures between 14°F and 86°F. Moreover, battery experts say that the number one cause of battery problems is too much heat. Batteries that get too warm drain faster than they normally would. Therefore, you should think of electronics as if they were a baby or a dog—if it’s hot outside, don’t leave it in the car.

Batteries are also affected by humidity and other weather extremes— they can bulge, bubble, melt, damage your device, smoke, and in (very) extreme cases, even blow-up. Some examples of areas to avoid bringing lithium-ion batteries are in a non-temperature controlled room, in a closed bathroom with the shower on, in a closed car on a hot day, or in a steam-room or a sauna.

The necessity of keeping your lithium ion battery cool

Standard Li-ion battery chemistry depends on electrolytes that react with a residual moisture to create hydrofluoric acid, the most corrosive of all chemical compounds. The speed of this process doubles with every increase in temperature of 10 degrees Celsius—resulting in a reduced calendar and cycle life. Moreover, not only does this mean that there is a run-time degrade with age, but it means that each subsequent charge discharge further reduces it.

This damage occurs until the battery just doesn’t last long enough between charges. In addition, the damage created by the increase in temperature is exacerbated the more you use your battery – therefore, the more power your device needs or the faster you charge it, the hotter the battery gets.

Electronic cigarettes provide smokers a smoke free alternative nicotine delivery method. When purchasing an e-cigarette, make sure that you properly care for your battery to ensure a long-lasting life.

Batteries: What You Need to Know & Which Style Will Work for You

accessories_long_batteryWith so many different e-cigarette batteries out there, do you ever wonder which type will suit you?

EverSmoke offers one basic style, with several different options, making it a very versatile, easy to use, and easy to please model. Available in different sizes and switch modes, you really have your way with this one. Here is a look at e-cigarette batteries, and a little info to help you choose if you are unsure about what you’re looking for.

Lithium-Ion

All EverSmoke batteries are made with the same SuperMax technology. They are lithium-ion, which makes them unbelievably durable, able to last a long time, and they have the capacity to produce excellent amounts of vapor.

Switches

EverSmoke offers two different options for switch modes: Manual or Automatic batteries. Manual batteries have a switch, or button that needs to be pressed during usage, activating the process. These batteries are known to produce a larger quantity of vapor than Automatic batteries, however the battery does not last as long. If you prefer a battery that automatically starts up once you puff on it, and you want it to have longer life, the Automatic switch style is for you. Two options offering two methods; if you aren’t sure which you want, we suggest trying each of them to experience how they work for yourself.

Sizes

Two battery sizes are available: Standard and High Capacity. Both are great to have in your personal selection, and having two gives you options to choose between. Sometimes you may prefer a larger or smaller battery, and some people find, after trying both styles, that they prefer one over the other. Like everything else with electronic cigarettes, it all comes down to trying and finding out what works for you.

Colors

Batteries are available in three different colors, and while this feature has nothing to do with performance, style definitely counts for something! Black, white, and stainless steel are the choices, and you are free to pick the color or colors you fancy. White is the obvious choice if you want your e-cig to look like a traditional cigarette; black is cool and sleek; and go with steel if you want a more modern, pen-like look.

While the e-cigarette market it filled with options and many different types of products and batteries, we are confident EverSmoke makes the most durable, highest performing options in this category.

Summer Travel: Do it Right with E-Cigarettes

o-SUMMER-TRAVEL-facebookSummer means travel for many people, whether it’s by plane, boat, or car, regardless if it’s out of necessity, for work, or for pleasure. If you find yourself on the move this summer, here is a checklist to make sure you’re set as far as your e-cigarettes are concerned. Because no matter where you are headed, and what mode of transportation you’ll be using, electronic cigarettes and travel work so much better together than their tobacco counterparts.

Batteries: Having 2 or more is a smart idea. It’s always good to have at least 2, so that you aren’t without one while the other is charging, or just in case you lose one.

Cartridges: Don’t assume you’ll be able to find cartridges wherever you’re going; chances are, you purchase them online anyway, so prepare ahead of time and order extras for your trip because having a few more than you expect to need will set you up in the event of delays.

Accessories: You will need at least one charger. Having a couple options is smart, and you should consider what your environment during travel is going to be like. For instance, if you are going on a road trip,  a car charger would be a definite essential, as well as perhaps a USB charger and/ or a wall charger for those times you hit a hotel. If you are going on a cruise ship, a wall charger and a USB charger (if you are bringing a laptop or tablet) would be ideal.

Extras: Depending on the type of travel you are doing, there are a few other items that would be great to have along the way. The PCC, or Personal Charging Case is great for charging on the go without needing an outlet. Disposable e-cigs let you vape without setup, charging or cartridges, so if you’re really tight on time, they are great to have with you. The PowerCig would be awesome to have if you plan on veging out in your hotel room for hours at a time.

Electronic cigarettes are super versatile, and they really make traveling easier, especially if you are accustomed to the troubles of traditional cigarettes. Wherever your summer travels take you in the next few months, enjoy the journey as much as the destination while vaping!

Spring Cleaning! – Taking Care of Your Electronic Cigarette

branch of a blossoming tree

Spring has sprung again!  This means the weather is getting warmer (hopefully), beautiful flowers are beginning to bloom and of course, the annoying pollen that comes along with the beauty of the season.  However, it also means it is time to get that check list out of items to clean!

Closets, cupboards, cabinets may only need the once a year spring cleaning but your electronic cigarette needs a cleaning on a regular basis.

If you have owned one a while and have yet to clean it, spring is a good time to start!  Your Eversmoke electronic cigarette has hopefully been a great investment for you so make it a priority to care of it properly.  It will not only help to extend the life of your product but can make your vaping experience even more satisfying.

Below are suggestions and guidelines for proper cleaning of your Eversmoke electronic cigarette. (However, always check your manual of your particular device for exactly cleaning instructions)

The Battery

  • Residue and dirt can often get stuck in between where the cartridge and battery connect.  It is suggested that, at least once a week, you take a lightly dampened cotton swab and clean this area where the residue collects.
  • Some people have used alcohol to clean but definitely check your manual before doing that. It is very important to clean the residue so that there is a proper connection between the battery and cartridge
  • Proper cleaning of your battery can mean better function, more charges and a longer lasting battery.

The Cartridge (Cartomizer)

  • Most newer model electronic cigarettes are now made up of two parts, the battery and the cartridge or cartomizer (e.g. where the atomizer, or heating element, is built into the cartridge).
  • The cartridge and atomizer used to be sold separately and would need cleaned separately but most are now combined.
  • Eversmoke offers disposable cartridges where it is not necessary to clean since it will be thrown away.
  • Eversmoke provides prefilled cartridges which means less mess and spills.
  • However, you may have a different type of model and you need to make sure that you clean the cartridge regularly where juices may have spilled and are possibly “caked” on to the cartridge.
  • You can take a small toothpick and gently break off the caked on material if the cloth will not work.

Bottom line, clean and take care of your electronic cigarette.  It will pay off for you! More TLC generally means a longer lasting electronic cigarette as well as better quality vaping.

Happy spring, happy cleaning and most of all…happy vaping!

Things Not to Do with Your E-cigarette

1236915_10152234354499358_581977267_n1Vaping is fun, it’s enjoyable, and it offers all the pleasure of smoking without the negatives that come with tobacco. For some e-smokers, things can get a little too comfortable, and some of their old tobacco habits can come creeping out with bad results. Here are a list of things not to do with your e-cig!

- Don’t keep it behind your ear; it weighs a bit more than a traditional cigarette and it can drop to its demise. If you want to display your e-cig as an accessory, enhance your personal style with an e-cig lanyard.

-Don’t toss it out the car window. Why were you doing that with your traditional cigarette anyway? Cigarette pollution is not cool, and neither is e-cigarette pollution (even if it’s devilishly humorous to consider how many people have done this only to lose their beloved e-cigs!). Simply, it’s an easy way to lose your e-cig and pollute the environment in one shot.

-Don’t assume your pocket is a safe storage location for an extended amount of time. Things fall out of pockets, and you never know what could be going on if you’re busy. Storage cases can be your best friends.

-Don’t store it in a bag, in a random pocket, in your luggage without protection, or in any other careless location, even if you are in a rush. This leaves your e-cigarette susceptible to damage; especially if your mind is on other things. It also can put your e-cig in a position to get harmfully dirty, which can affect performance or literally leave a bad taste in your mouth.

-Don’t leave it hanging in your mouth when you’re not using it. Seriously, it’s been done before and isn’t a smart idea. It’s not a papery, lightweight traditional cig, and it can drop without hesitation. Why risk it?

Protecting your e-cigarette, and treating it right can make it last a very long time, and it can ensure it performs with optimal results for as long as possible. If you want additional information on how to store your e-cigs safely, or to know more about protecting them, feel free to browse through our resources!

Car Charging Adapter: Mobile charging whenever you’re in the car; make the most of your commute! Being able to charge through your car’s outlet is especially useful if you spend a lot time driving.

Carrying Case: Stylishly and safely store your batteries, cartridges, and an extra USB charger in this case. It fits in a pocket, and will keep all your necessities secure and ready for use.

E-Cigs: Commuting and Car Travel

uk-electronic-cigarettesYou know how it goes when smoking in your car. If you’ve got nonsmokers traveling or commuting with you, and you opt to smoke, it may create some conflict.

Even if you don’t have passengers and you smoke in the car, you probably know all too well all the negatives that come along with it. Annoying things like burning your seats or upholstery, dropping your ash all over the place, the smell that never seems to go away, and the most detrimental possibility being the distraction they can cause.

While you may not consider the many benefits of e-cigs in their other contexts, when it comes to smoking in the car they are so much more convenient than smoking tobacco.

E-cigs in the car can save you the trouble and stress of the mess, as well as possibly downgrading your car’s value due to cigarette damage. You won’t be dropping ash, burning anything, or permeating your seats with the tobacco odor. Your passengers; whether they’re friends or carpoolers, won’t be disgruntled over the offensive toxic smoke and odor. Plus, none of these negatives will be distracting you!

Having the right accessories is one of the best features of using e-cigs in any situation.

Whether you are commuting or traveling long distances, you have the ability to make the most of your time by charging up. Another option that works really well when you know you’re going to be in the car for a long period of time is using the Personal Charging Case. This case charges batteries as it holds them, without an additional power source, giving you the freedom of wireless, mobile charging!

When it comes to enjoying nicotine in the car, the only way to do it right is with e-cigs. They are simply better for you, the people carpooling with you, your car, and having all around convenience!
