How to Prolong the Battery Life of Your Vaporizer

It's downright frustrating when you are forced to stop vaping just to recharge your battery. While some vaporizers don't have this problem since they require a direct connection to a power outlets, other vaporizers like handheld/portable models do have this problem.

Don't Overcharge Your Battery

Most batteries used in vaporizers have built-in mechanisms that prevent them from being overcharged. However, it's still recommended that you disconnect the battery once it reaches 100%. Leaving it connected to the power outlet will only increase the wear and tear that it receives, so try to get into the habit of removing it once it has charged.

Charge 8 Hours Before First Use

While you should always refer to your vaporizer's owner manual for more instructions regarding the charging of its battery, most vaporizers require the battery to be charged for a full 8 hours before being used. Vaporizers typically use lithium polymer (LiPo) batteries, which require a full charge for optimal functionality. Again, refer to your owner's manual for precise instructions on how and when to recharge the battery.

Avoid Storing in Sunlight

Why should you avoid storing your vaporizer's battery in sunlight? Well, exposure to heat -- sunlight or other sources -- will deplete its charge at a faster-than-normal rate. Ideally, you should store your battery in a dark area that's not too humid but not too dry. Somewhere like the top drawer of your dresser should suffice, assuming your bedroom has a moderate humidity of 40-50%.

Charge the Battery Before it Dies

Rather than waiting until your vaporizer's battery has been completely depleted, go ahead and charge it when it reaches 20-30%. Following this otherwise simple rule will go a long ways in preserving its charge and preventing it from drying early.

These are just a few simple steps that owners can take to prolong the battery life of their vaporizer. If you are worried about your battery dying and leaving you without a functional vaporizer, I recommend picking up a spare battery. As the saying goes, it's better to be safe than sorry. If your primary battery dies or malfunctions, you'll have a second battery ready to take its place.
