Heat & E-Cig Batteries: Not a Great Combo

e-cigarette batteries & heatE-cigarette batteries, like all lithium ion batteries, are not designed to handle extremes; whether it’s weather or humidity, they really don’t tolerate dramatically high or drastically cold temperatures well. So, if you find yourself living in areas where temperatures are known to hit extremes; hot or cold, with the possibility of severe humidity, (you know, basically anywhere that does not include perfectly moderate, dry conditions) the following info will surely be to your benefit.

Heat is particularly detrimental to the lithium ion batteries of electronic cigarettes. Some of the common issues known to arise from exposure to extreme heat include sudden halts in performance, the device failing to work, damage to the device, melting, bubbles, bulging, warping, expansion, contracting, the presence of smoke (not vapor!), sparks, flames, and even the possibility of explosions in the most rare and isolated incidents!

One thing to keep in mind about temperatures and your e-cigarettes is that extremes in temps can happen anywhere, and at any time. It is not a strictly a situation you’re going to run into exclusively by leaving your device in your car, parked in the sun, with all windows rolled up. Obviously, that’s a recipe built for disaster, but consider your back porch, an enclosed bathroom with the shower running, a sauna, your pocket if you’re outdoors on a hot, sweaty day; these can be everyday situations depending on your location, so in terms of the long-term usage of your e-cigarette batteries, consider it part of the package to keep the effects of the temperatures in consideration. Room temp is best, if you’re ever unsure!

The bottom line with e-cigarette batteries is that if you treat them properly, maintain a good regimen of care, they will last an exceptionally long time and will perform completely up to the standards you expect. However, considering all lithium ion batteries, e-cigarette or otherwise, are sensitive to temperature extremes, do your very best to keep them in moderation. Consider your e-cigarettes an investment; make your money go as far as you can.

What is the Best Temperature for E-Cigs?

Extreme Temperatures and E-CigsThis summer has been a scorcher, hasn’t it? With record-breaking temps all across the land, and far away as well, here’s a little PSA about your e-cigs and the heat. Particularly, why the heat is not compatible with them, and why keeping them at a controlled level around room temperature is ideal.

If you consider your electronic cigarettes an investment, which we hope you do because they do offer so much in the way of pleasure and savings, treating them properly is essential to making this investment last as long as possible.

You’ve probably figured out by now that the most important part of your e-cig is the battery. It is the main component of the device, and it is the most delicate. Atomizers get replaced every time you swap out a cartridge, and every other part can be replaced rather easily. Therefore, the battery is the lifeblood of vaping. It is at once the power source and the base of the device. Protect this one part, if you opt to neglect others!

Extreme temperatures, particularly those on the hot end of the spectrum, are especially dangerous to e-cigarette batteries. These batteries, which are lithium ion batteries, cannot handle extreme heat or cold, so keeping them in your car, on the dashboard, out on the porch, or in sunny windows, is never a good idea! Even if the temperatures are moderate, your car is the worst place to hold your devices and batteries because cars heat up way hotter inside than outside, and this can cause immense damage on your batteries. The dangers range from a wide array of possibilities; from melting and warping to inflicting damage upon the battery that causes it to drain faster.

However, freezing temps are also not exactly ideal, as freezing can cause the liquid to freeze, which in turn can cause the inner workings of your battery to expand, and outright destroy the battery.

Another no-no? Moisture. Whether in the form of rain, humidity, or other accidental exposure, water and electronic devices generally do not play well together, so keep your e-cig battery safe, dry, and away from any external sources of water.

Keeping your e-cigarette batteries safe and protected is so important to their overall lifespan and ability to provide you with the tobacco-free enjoyment you want. While it may seem bothersome to take these extra precautions, your e-cigs are worth it; protect your investment!

E-Cigarettes & Heat: What You Need to Know

EverSmoke Batteries and HeatHeat and e-cigarettes can make for a bad situation. Your e-cigarette batteries are your lifeline to vaping. Without them, you obviously won’t get very far, and if they are damaged or compromised, you’re out of luck if you don’t have backup. The majority of the batteries used in vaping devices are lithium ion, and they need specific conditions to perform optimally, especially in regards to temperature extremes.

Ideally, the temperatures your batteries are kept at should never dip below 14 degrees Fahrenheit, or rise above 86 degrees. There is a whole range of things that can go wrong, from lesser effectiveness, to the battery totally failing. In fact, the most common cause of electronic cigarette battery issues can be attributed to overheating. Here are some of the signs your battery may exhibit if it has had an overexposure to too hot temperatures:

  • Expanded body
  • Has stopped working
  • Bubbles
  • Signs of melting
  • Bulging
  • Smoking (not vaping)
  • Contracts
  • Sparks
  • Flames
  • In extremely rare circumstances, it can become explosive
  • And shows other signs of damage

And it’s not just the heat that is a problem. Extreme cold can cause the internal parts of an electronic cigarette battery to expand, which can cause irreparable damage.

It has long been documented that lithium ion batteries can become explosive when subjected to temperatures above 100 F in a multitude of devices, including laptops and cellphones. While this is extremely rare, precautions should be taken to protect both yourself and your batteries.

Considering all that these tiny devices provide you with, and how little effort it takes to truly safeguard them, it pays to take the extra steps if you are faced with temperature extremes. Proper and attentive care will give you the best performance out of your e-cigarette batteries, and will ensure that your investment yields the best return, while ensuring your safety. Take care of them, and they’ll surely take care of you!

How to Choose a Battery

Choosing an E-Cig BatterySo you’re sure you want to switch to vapor cigarettes from traditional, but you’re stuck on how to choose an e-cigarette battery. You’ve got choices: small, medium, and large; also known as Mini, Standard, and High-Capacity, and just like their incremental size would lead you to believe, different size means different capabilities.

Similar to AA or AAA batteries with a slight difference in size and shape, EverSmoke e-cig batteries are rechargeable lithium ion batteries. Typically charged with a USB cable, they also can be powered up with a Personal Charging Case, a wall adapter as well as a car adapter.

EverSmoke Mini E-Cigarette Battery

The Mini is, well, mini. In price, in power, charging time, and lasting time through charges, this battery gives you the whole experience in a bite-sized format. It goes from 160-175 puffs before needing to be charged. The expected lifespan is from 40,000 and 43,750 puffs. Sometimes a small size is exactly what you need, and it is the perfect battery for vapers who are on the go.

Standard E-Cigarette Battery

The standard size battery can be looked at as the middle ground. It is medium sized, has a great amount of power, can last between 200 and 250 puffs, and it has a nice moderate size about it. These take around 2 to 3 hours to charge up to full capacity, and the overall lifespan is about 50,000 to 62,500 puffs.


When you need a high-capacity battery, this is the one for you. The larger the size, the higher the electrical charge rating, and the ability to have a battery that goes a bit longer is exactly what some people mean need. This battery costs slightly more then it’s more counterparts, but you get more overall. The High Capacity battery goes up to 350 puffs per charge, and the overall lifespan is typically around 87,500 puffs.

Different sizes accommodate different needs and preferences, so it is always our suggestion that you have more than one size to choose from, as well as more than one battery at your disposal. This will keep life very convenient and allow you to have a backup battery when one is charging. One of the biggest assets to being a vaper is always staying prepared, and knowing what these batteries offer individually gives you exactly the knowledge you need to choose!

EverSmoke Batteries: The Technology Behind the Scenes

EVERSMOKE9EverSmoke batteries are pretty amazing. Like most other e-cigarette batteries on the market, EverSmoke batteries use lithium ion technology. They are constructed of lithium and carbon materials, and this makes them lightweight and ultra-powerful. Here’s a deeper look into the technology behind these batteries, how they work and what makes them so ideal for electronic smoking.

Lithium ion batteries were first released in 1997, they are used in all varieties of different devices including smart phones, other types of mobile phones, tablets, laptops, digital cameras, video game consoles, flashlights, power tools, hybrid vehicles, electric wheelchairs, model aircraft, and even the Mars Curiosity Rover. Amazing right?

Unlike older battery models that worked on electronic charges using liquid solvents, lithium ion batteries work with solid polymer composite. This enables the electrodes and separators which are responsible for generating the charge to be limited to one another. This enables the battery to be encased within a flexible casing, as opposed to a metal casing, enabling them to be shaped specifically for certain devices creating an individualized fit. This equates to greater versatility all around.

Here are some of the many benefits lithium ion batteries bring to the world of electronics:

  • Lithium ion batteries are very lightweight batteries.
  • Lithium is a highly reactive element, and this allows lithium ion batteries to hold a lot more stored energy.
  • They hold battery charges much longer per month than older style batteries. Lithium ion batteries lose only about 5% of their charge each month compared to the much higher rate of 20% of loss for older types of batteries.
  • Lithium ion batteries do not need to be fully discharged before recharging.
  • Lithium ion batteries are not only strong, but they are exceptionally durable. They can handle hundreds of charging cycles in their lifetime.

As excellent as lithium ion batteries are, they do come with a few pitfalls unfortunately:

  • Lithium ion batteries begin to degrade once they leave the factory.
  • They are extremely sensitive to heat and exposure can cause them to degenerate very quickly.
  • Continually completely discharging lithium ion batteries can destroy them
  • They are more expensive batteries due to the technology involved.

Lithium ion batteries are the power behind electronic cigarettes, and you can surely see why. This amazing technology allows smokers to have a device that enables them the same pleasure without smoke tobacco and tar, with quality, durability and convenience. Innovation is incredible, isn’t it?!

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.
