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!

This is a friendly Daylight Savings Battery Check reminder from Voltage Vapin’!

Battery Safety is our biggest priority at Voltage Vapin’!

voltage

It’s that time of year again when you set your clocks forward an hour and check your batteries in the smoke alarms. When checking all your batteries around the house, make sure to check the batteries that are in your device. If you see any tears in the wrapping or any issues with the battery itself, come by and let us take a look at them. Battery safety is one of the most important things here at Voltage Vapin’ so if those wraps are torn let us take care of them and get each one rewrapped! If you have any questions about being safe with your batteries, don’t hesitate to come by so we can clear up any concerns you may have about them because when bad things happen to batteries, it’s due to improper use or care of them and the news like to blow it way out of proportion or not give the whole story.

Be Educated, and be Safe with Voltage Vapin’! (UPDATED)

 

We make sure all our Customers are taught to be safe at Voltage Vapin’!

 

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.

Buying any two 18650 batteries includes a battery case for the safe transfer of batteries. 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 do our part to keep batteries safe for proper usage, inside and outside of the device.  That’s the Voltage Vapin’ Way!



Regulated devices are a great way to stay safe while enjoying your Vape!

(DISCONTINUED)

Pictured is the Sigelei 213 Fuchai Box Mod, one of the many self-regulating devices we have here at Voltage Vapin’.  What is a self-regulating device?  Well, a self-regulating device is a device that has a chipset within the device.  This chipset ensures the device will not fire if it is unsafe to do so.  The Sigelei 213 Fuchai has warning signs like “overheat”, “check atomizer”, or “Short!” when the device is outside of normal parameters.  In that respect, the device keeps itself from causing damage to the user and to itself.

 

Our goal at Voltage is to make sure you know everything we know about your new device.  It’s not enough to just put it in your hands.  So if you hear us ask you if you would like to be set up, that’s not us saying you’re not smart enough to do it on your own.  It’s us doing our part to keep your vaping experience safe, and enjoyable for months (and years!) to come.

Let us show you all we know at Voltage Vapin’ Today!

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 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.

Battery Safety aids are always available at Voltage Vapin’!

battery safety

Some of you may have seen the news report that has recently aired about exploding batteries (if you haven’t, click here). Well, at Voltage Vapin’, we’re known for preaching battery safety in all it’s forms… from battery safety in your device, to battery safety outside of your device.  We don’t cut our customers any slack on information, nor do we neglect to tell our customers that batteries outside of your device can be dangerous if mishandled.  We always suggest something to carry around your spare batteries safely… and not for an extra sale. Just the Opposite.  We keep our battery safety aids cheap for our customers because it’s important!



 

Take for instance, our Battery Boxes…

battery safety

 

Battery cases are the most common way to carry your batteries safely.  Very easy to maintain, and most importantly, very effective.  Ideal for people with dual battery box mods, because it’s easier to keep your batteries “married”, or paired up.  Above (from right to left) is the 26650 battery box and the 18650 battery boxes, two of the most widely used battery types in vaping.



Also try our Battery Sleeves…

battery safety

Battery sleeves are ideal for customers that have devices that use only 1 battery 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 a battery is made safer, and just a little protection is all you need from having a potential incident.



And by far the best way to maintain battery safety…

battery safety

You!

By staying informed about batteries and battery safety, and keeping your batteries freshly wrapped (which we also offer here at Voltage Vapin’), you become your own safety net!  Feel free to ask questions about your batteries, and your device to any of our staff, and we will show you how to keep your batteries safe and continue to vape the products you enjoy!  Voltage Vapin’ will ALWAYS do our best to stay up-to-date on the newest tech, and the newest info on battery safety.  Be informed!  And keep your batteries safe!
