Secret of The Best Power Source for Your Vape
Vape batteries come in all shapes, sizes and forms; from built-in batteries to the all-popular 18650 vape mod batteries. Therefore, choosing the best battery for vaping is a tough row to hoe for inexperienced and even intermediate vapers.
Whether online or offline, when shopping for the best battery for vaping, you need to consider several factors. The first and foremost thing you need to bear in mind is whether the battery is compatible with your e-cig or not. Then take a look at the two major factors that decide the power and lifecycle of a battery, which are amperage and mAh, respectively. Amperage denotes the maximum power that can be withdrawn from the battery at one time while mAh (milliamp hours) shows the overall lifecycle of the battery. Due to present technology limitations, there is a tradeoff between amperage and mAh. In other words, a battery with high power (amperage ) will have a lower mAh (lifecycle) and require to be recharged more often, and vice versa. Depending on your particular vaping needs, you have to choose a good balance between the two.
However, not all batteries are made equal, and two batteries with the same amperage can produce different voltages. So, it all boils down to the materials used in manufacturing. Mig Vapor really prides in its batteries as we use the very best materials to make the very best vape batteries based on designs formulated by the best designers in the USA and overseas.

How to Get the Most Out of Your Vape Batteries?
Vape batteries or vape mod batteries can last much longer and offer an overall better performance if used properly. And luckily it’s not rocket science, as all you need to do is keep a few simple things in mind:
The biggest reason why most batteries don’t make it to their full lifecycle is overcharging i.e. people leave them on the charger overnight. Always remove the batteries from the vape charger as soon as they are fully charged.
Likewise, over-discharge can also reduce the performance. Most vapers will keep vaping until the battery is dead, this practice isn’t recommended. Always recharge the batteries with some power left in them, ideally when they are at about 30%. This is where carrying spare rotation batteries can come in real handy if you are a chain vaper. Also, let the batteries cool down to room temperature before charging and never use any charger other than recommended by the manufacturer as it may cause the batteries to vent.
Ideally, you should keep your vape mod batteries in a custom plastic case, at a temperature range between 0-110F, and away from direct sunlight. Never carry loose vape battery in your pocket, especially if there are other metallic objects such as coins, as it can cause short-circuit.
A little-known trick to prolong your vape battery’s life is store them when they are about 60% charged, if you won’t be using the for a while. Storing batteries with less than 50% charge also decreases their life as batteries keep discharging even when they’re not used. Some people also store batteries in the refrigerator, which isn’t really necessary but if you do so, make sure you wrap them in a plastic bag to keep moisture away.
Leaving batteries unused for an extended period of time can reduce their capacity, because just like your body, the batteries also need regular exercise. Especially the lithium-ion vape batteries are designed to be used every day, e.g. in the case of smartphones. Batteries that are not regularly used start losing their capacity.
Keep the contacts and threads on the vape battery as well as the cartomizer clean. After repeated use, dirt and moisture can accumulate there, which can ruin your batteries and device. You may use a cotton swab or alcohol pad to clean the contacts and threads every once in a while.
- Safety Tips for Battery Use
You might have read or seen in the news vape mod batteries exploding in people’s pockets, hands or when they were being charged, causing property damage as well as injuries.

Here are a few simple things that you can do to ensure safe functioning of your vape batteries.
► Only buy mods and vape batteries from reputable manufacturers.
► Always use the charger that came with the vaporizer or the one recommended by the manufacturer. An incompatible charger is the single biggest reason of vape mod batteries explosions.
► Don’t overcharge or over-discharge.
► Handle your vaporizer carefully, if you drop it, there is a danger of batteries venting. Instantly place the vaporizer in a metal container if possible, or at least away from people and property.
► Never use batteries with visible damage, no matter how small it may be
► If you’re buying new batteries, make sure they are a right fit for the resistance of your atomizer, and if you buy a new atomizer, it should be in line with your battery power
► Never carry loose batteries in your pocket, as they may short-circuit with coins or any metallic part of your jeans
