Battery safety is key at Voltage Vapin’!

Battery safety is one of the most important parts of vaping and we would like to take the time to educate everyone on the basics!

battery

More likely than not, you have seen news stories or videos on the internet about people who have had their vaping device explode or catch on fire. These issues do not just happen from everyday vaping. Improper use, neglecting the condition of your battery, and not understanding battery safety are the most common causes of these issues. One of the most common occurrences we see is tears in the battery wrap. Tears mean that there is exposed metal that can touch other metal and short out the battery. A shorted out battery can heat up causing it to vent. Even more dangerous than a tear is if the insulator on the positive side of the battery is missing or torn. Voltage Vapin’ does offer services to rewrap your battery as well as putting in a new insulator to make sure all of our customers stay safe!

Another issue that we have seen is people who carry around their 18650’s in their pocket with loose change or metal. What happens when pieces of metal touch both sides of a battery? It tries to discharge with nowhere for it to go causing the battery to heat up and vent. Always carry your batteries in a sealed case if you put them in your pocket! Lastly, the way you charge your device is very important. If you charge a device too quickly with a fast charger, such as those that charge popular smartphones, it is too much power too quickly. This can lead to battery venting, so be sure to use the charger that your device came with!

If you are unsure about anything related to battery safety, make a stop into Voltage Vapin’ to get some clarifications. We can rewrap them or let you know if the battery is unsafe to use, in which case we do provide the service of selling fully charged batteries!



Now that you know more about how to keep your batteries safe, you can use the more powerful mods like the Smok GX350!

gx350

The GX350 is Smok’s latest and most powerful mod and it just might be the most powerful mod on the market right now! Imagine Smok’s ever so popular Alien mod and multiply it by 2 and this is what pops out! Using the same style battery door as the Alien but with 4 18650’s instead of 2, the GX350 is one of the longest lasting, hardest hitting mods we have ever seen, especially for its compact size! With the dimensions being around the same size as the Reuleaux RX200, its makes a 4 battery device much more comfortable and pocket friendly than any others we have seen! Yes, the name does actually mean that it is 350 watts and it will also fire down to 0.1 ohms so this mod is a cloud chasers dream. Ever wanted to push the V8-T12 coils for the TFV12? Well this is the mod to do it so make sure you claim yours before they fly off the shelves!

Voltage Vapin’ Cares about Battery Safety!

battery

Voltage Vapin’ is about battery safety.  We have taught battery safety to our customers since day one.  We all have heard and seen the stories of batteries blowing up. Here is an interview with Jay Taylor, our owner, on battery safety (if you haven’t seen it, click on here).  Fortunately, we offer to re-wrap batteries, and battery safety aids, like the battery sleeve, and the battery cases.  Well, we’ve gone in a step in the right direction.

The dual 18650 battery cases will now be included in the price of any two 18650 batteries, to ensure there is proper protection for your batteries when they’re not in your device.

For example, if you bought four of our Purple Efest 18650 batteries, included in that price is two battery boxes so they can travel safely while inside your pocket.  It’s our pledge to you, to do our part to keep batteries safe for proper usage.  That’s the Voltage Way!



Also try our Battery Sleeves…

battery

Battery sleeves are ideal for customers that have devices that use only one at a time.  We currently have only the 18650 types, as they are mostly used in single battery devices.  Notice that the sleeve keeps the contacts from touching anything on the positive and negative ports.  This means with a sleeve, carrying it is made safer, and just a little protection is all you need from having a potential incident.



The LG HG2 18650 “Chocolate” Battery

battery

With all the new Box Mods that we’ve debuted here at Voltage, it only made sense to expand our battery selection, so we decided to offer one that customers were asking for… the LG HG2 18650 Chocolate battery!  This High-drain Dynamo is another Flat top battery that puts out a constant 20 amp with a 35 amp peak.  Fully charged with 3000 mah, it can compete with other 18650 batteries of it’s kind.  Great for cloud chasers and flavor tasters alike, it’s compatible with any device that uses 18650 batteries, but better with devices that are regulated.

Features and Specs:

  • High Drain- 20A constant current 35 amp peak,
  • Model: LG 18650 HG2
  • Nominal Capacity: 3000mAh
  • Nominal Voltage: 3.6V

In need of batteries??? Come to Voltage Vapin ‘ and check out all the batteries we carry in stock!! We carry Efest, Sony, Samsung & Panasonic!!!

26650 Purple Efest Batteries

Efest 26650 3500mAh 32A Reduced

The Purple Efest 26650 3500mAh is a great and long lasting battery. It has a 32A Continuous Amp rating and a 64A Pulse rating. Great for those low ohm builds!



 

26650 MNKE Batteries

MNKE 26650 3500mAh

MNKE IMR 26650, 3500mAh, Flat Top

MNKE batteries are the definitive battery for the mechanical-mod user.  Not only are these the safest batteries available, they also perform better for a longer period of time.  The high amp-limit on these batteries means you can build sub-ohm coils without fear of the batteries venting.  These are 3500mAh batteries, and can hold a charge above 3.7-volts for much longer than other IMR batteries, which means hours of use before a noticeable difference in voltage compels a battery change. These batteries will perform just as well in an APV or Variable Voltage/Variable Wattage mod, although the advantages won’t be as apparent. If you like to build your own sub-ohm coils on a mechanical mod, you won’t believe the performance and battery life these cells offer.

Note: These batteries are large! They will only work in mods specifically designed to house a 26650 battery!

  • Dimensions: 65.0mm (L) x 18.2mm (D)

Note: Sony VTC4 IMR cells have a much lower internal resistance than regular 3.7V lithium ions. Voltage could go higher when charged on certain chargers such as the older versions of the WF-139 charger. Always check the voltage of your 18650 IMR battery after a full charge to make sure it is above 4.2V. You can use a multimeter to do this. Overcharging your Sony VTC4 above 4.25V may shorten the life cycle or even cause permanent damage to the product.

The Sony VTC4 rechargeable battery is one of the best 18650 cells for mechanical mods and RBA devices. Rated at 2100mAh with 30 amps, this flat-top model also works well with variable voltage vaporizers.
