The battery is the power source of your vaping device. Battery capacity is measured in milliamps (mAh). A simple, averaged way to think about mAh is 150 mAh = 1 hour vaping. This is just a general guideline, as the amount of vaping time you get out of your battery will vary based on your style of vaping and the type of clearomiser one is using and also the voltage setting the device is set at.
An electronic cigarette battery is made up of the following components:


  • To turn your battery on, press the fire button 5 times. This is also how you switch it off.

  • To use your battery, simply press the firing button. This sends an electrical charge through the firing pin, up into the atomiser coil, turning the coil red-hot and vapourising the liquid soaked into the surrounding cotton wicking material.


  • Some newer batteries use a spring-loaded firing pin. This solves the problem that develops with some firing pins that are pushed down into the battery by the force of the tank’s screw, which results in the device not firing. If you have a non-spring loaded firing pin on your battery, and you notice that it is not firing, use a small screwdriver to just nudge the firing pin upwards slightly.


  • More advanced batteries come with a variable-voltage switch or dial, which allows the user to control how much power is pushed to the coil, which in turn determines how hot it becomes. The hotter the coil, the more vapour and the more throat-hit.


  • Mainstream vaping devices use one of two threading connections. Smaller, beginner devices use eGo threading, which is a wider, larger connection. Larger, more advanced devices use the narrower 510 connection. There is no real difference between these two connections, apart from compatibility with other components.


  • Depending on which device you have, you can charge it either by screwing it on to the an eGo charger, or by plugging in a micro-USB cable. A word of caution: Do not use a charger that comes with a higher or lower powered device. This may cause your battery to overheat.

  • You can charge your device quicker by plugging the USB into an adaptor which goes into a wall outlet.

  • It’s best not to leave your battery charging unattended overnight. It’s always best to charge your battery while you’re in the room just in case anything goes wrong.
