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

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.

Boosting Your E-Cig Battery Life

250-250-eversmoke-battery-ecig-batteriesWhen it comes to electronic cigarette batteries, you may be wondering what you can do to keep yours running as powerfully as possible, for as long as possible. Here are some ways to improve your e-cig batteries’ performance and life so that you can get the most out of them. While many people complain about e-cigarette batteries not lasting very long, we encourage you to take some action to keep things running smoothly!

-Clean the Battery. E-cigarette batteries get subjected to dirt and foreign debris because they are handled with the hands, and when anything is used regularly, it gets exposed. Small liquid leaks, storing the battery in your pocket upside down, and normal, everyday dirt can get in and slowly diminish performance. What you can do is tidy things up a bit. Cleaning your electronic cigarette doesn’t have to be difficult, however, you should know the basics: Once a week or so, take your e-cigarette apart, and wipe down all parts with a damp cloth. If you feel inspired, or if there is a significant amount of visible filth, use an old toothbrush to really scrub the junk out. This allows the parts to connect more consistently, and ensures dirt will not be getting in the way of your enjoyment.

-Use the Battery. It was designed for use, so use it! Some people want to preserve their batteries, and attempt to use them as infrequently as possible, but that’s not what they were designed for. Using them enables them to actually work, and they need that constant running to maintain good performance.

-Charge E-Cig Batteries Properly. Yes there are actually wrong ways to charge your batteries! You don’t want to wait till you’re down to the 0 level. The ideal time to charge a battery is when it is at 50% or higher because this creates less stress on the battery to power it back up to full capacity. When drained to nearly no power, it takes more effort and energy out of the battery to recover, and this overtime, contributes to a loss of performance.

-Store Your Batteries Right. Our storage cases were designed with the intent of storing your EverSmoke e-cigarette batteries, so we suggest using them. A case is the ideal place to hold your batteries because they were made to protect, and to keep your batteries safe. Just stashing a battery in your pocket is one of the worst things you can do, so keep it safe in a case, as well as in a cool, dry place.

So that sums it up! Taking care of your electronic cigarette batteries doesn’t have to take an exaggerated amount of time, nor does it have to be complicated. Following these simple steps can allow you to use your battery for a very long time, without losing any of the power and performance you want. E-cigarettes are an investment; protect them!

Powering the Vaping World

Information about lithium-ion batteries and their usage in today’s techy world

In 1997, developers released a new battery that rather than using a liquid solvent to conduct a charge (like the nickel-metal hydride battery (NiMH), they used a solid polymer composite instead.

The Workings of Lithium-ion Batteries

In addition to using solid polymer composite, the electrodes and separators that generate the charge in a lithium-ion battery are laminated to each other. This allows for a flexible wrapping casing rather than a typical metal casing.

For this reason, shaping lithium-ion batteries to specific devices is easy, which eliminates the need for one size-fits all battery.

What Lithium-ion Batteries Power

Pretty much all of the devices we use today use lithium-ion batteries for a power source—including (but not limited to):

  • Portable devices
    • For example: mobile and smartphones, laptops and tablets, digital cameras and camcorders, handheld game consoles and flashlights and most e-cigarettes on the market (including EverSmoke)

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.

Dealing with the Snow: Enjoying e-cigs no matter what the weather

Winter Snow Storm Hammers Northeastern USThis year’s nonstop onslaught of inclement weather throughout the US has seen unprecedented amounts of snow and crazy conditions, attributed to the lovely polar vortex. Who ever heard of winter storms getting names? Wasn’t that a luxury once reserved only for hurricanes? It seems as though no sooner than areas recover from one storm, it’s time to prepare for the next blizzard and subsequent days of freezing temperatures.

While it can be a wonderful thing to be an e-smoker rather than a tobacco smoker during the winter, especially when you don’t have to bundle up just for a 5 minute smoke break, there are things to keep in mind if you will be vaping during this particularly brutal winter!

So if you are a vaper, how do you deal? Here are some tips for handling the weather and still enjoying your e-cigarettes in the process.

When Losing Power is of Concern:

How will you charge your e-cigarette batteries if you have no power? Obviously that is a big deal, however you do have options. Having a Portable Charging Case would be really ideal in this situation, as it can charge your batteries 4 times before it needs to be recharged. Another option would be to have a nice supply of disposable e-cigarettes, which do not require charging and they can be used right out of the package.

If You Leave Town:

Traveling with e-cigarettes can be done easily. Make sure to pack enough extra batteries, cartridges, a couple of versatile chargers, and whatever accessories you use to keep things simple. Even though you may have to leave quickly, it’s always important to have a supply of extra cartridges just in case of emergencies, you’re covered. Disposable e-cigarettes are also a great example of what to have on hand in case of an emergency.

If you’re Sticking it Out, Trying Not to Go Stir-Crazy:

Make sure your e-cigs are handy and make sure you’ve got plenty of gear to keep you warm. If you’ve got power, turn the heat up to a comfortable temperature; if you’ve got a fireplace take full advantage of it and get burning bright. Huddle close in to your loved ones and/or animals, and vape on dreaming of summer!

Accessories that Add Convenience

header_accessoriesWith all of the different options available to you with electronic cigarettes, one of the very best offerings comes with accessories. They enable so much additional convenience, plus they allow you to use the products in a more personal, tailored way. A selection of different e-cigarette chargers especially give you a variety of choices in how you keep your batteries powered up.

Here is a look at our many accessories, and how they can be used to enhance your experience when e-smoking. While they aren’t all necessities, they are highly valuable to your personal vaping.

Batteries: essentials, but also considered accessories. You don’t want to be without a few of these. Two size choices, two different switch styles, and three colors to choose from give you lots of variety.

Portable Charging Case: AKA the PCC, this charger is beyond handy, and no e-smoker should be vaping without it. It’s an outlet in your pocket, charging your batteries anywhere without needing to plug it in.

Power Cig: Simplify your vaping when you aren’t mobile with this battery. It works without needing charging, because it comes with an extra long cord to plug into an outlet. Beware, you will probably be tempted to vape a lot with this!

Wall Charger: Standard with all of our starter kits, and certainly worth your while to have an extra, the Wall Charger is a basic charger that plugs into the wall. An extra at work, one in your purse or bag, and one at home will ensure you’re able to charge just about everywhere.

USB Charger: Another standard charger, the USB Charger works with any USB outlet. Just like the Wall Charger, having a few of these is a good idea. Bonus for you, we also sell them in packs of three.

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.

Lanyard: Keep your e-cig safely around your neck with the Lanyard. It’s ideal when you’re on the go, and need easy access.

When it comes to vapor smoking, accessories are what keeps things running smooth. You may not need a lot of them, but depending on what works for you, they were made to make your time vaping go smoothly. Convenience rocks!
