3 Minutes to Understand the Importance of Battery Health in Vape Devices

23. Feb. 2024

A comfortable vaping experience depends not only on the coil, pod, and airflow but also on the battery, which is an important factor. Having a good battery not only allows you to enjoy vaping more freely but also affects your safety. Therefore, when choosing an e-cigarette product, it’s crucial to opt for reputable brands to avoid frequent charging due to poor-quality batteries, which could pose safety risks to your personal well-being.

Due to the unique nature of battery materials, let’s explore how to properly understand battery characteristics and safely use vape devices.

Learn to Identify the Health Status of E-cigarette Batteries

E-cigarette Batteries

Battery Life Identification: When your vape device needs frequent charging and barely lasts after being fully charged, you should be cautious. Its health may have deteriorated, and you should avoid using such batteries or vape devices as much as possible.

Battery Safety Identification: If your device automatically fires when inserting the pod and cannot be turned off, immediately remove the pod and check for any leakage between the battery and pod connections. If leakage is found, try wiping the liquid from the battery with a tissue before retrying. If there’s no improvement, you should stop using the product immediately.

Battery Damage Identification:Battery damage can not only affect device performance but also pose potential safety hazards. Therefore, familiarizing yourself with battery damage identification methods is paramount to ensuring safe usage. Let’s delve into the telltale signs that your vape battery might be compromised:

1. Visual Cues:

  • Swelling: This indicates a potentially dangerous internal chemical reaction.
  • Dents: They suggest physical damage to the casing, compromising its integrity.
  • Leaks: Beware of escaping electrolyte, which can cause burns and corrosion.
  • Burning: Overheating damage might have occurred.

2. Performance Issues:

  • Reduced lifespan: The battery can no longer hold a sufficient charge.
  • Decreased vapor production: Insufficient power delivery to the atomizer.
  • Longer heating times: Reduced efficiency in heating the e-liquid.
  • Flavor changes: Impurities in the vapor due to damaged components.

3. Charging Woes:

  • Slow or fast charging: Internal resistance issues or charger malfunction.
  • Flashing or non-functional indicator: Problems with the battery’s charging circuit.

Remember, identifying these signs early allows you to replace the damaged battery and avoid potential safety risks.

Recognizing Low Battery Indicators in Vape Devices

To properly protect the battery, it’s essential to understand its real-time status, including its usage of power.

In ASPIRE’s product devices, there are currently two types of battery reminders, which are also commonly used in most vape devices: LED indicator lights and OLED electronic display screen indicators. Let’s understand their differences.

LED Indicator Lights

Low Battery Indicators in Vape Devices

Many Aspire devices are equipped with LED indicator lights to provide users with real-time battery status. These lights may change color or blink in different patterns to indicate battery depletion. For example, a steady green light may indicate a full battery, while a red light or rapid blinking usually signifies low battery.

Taking ASPIRE Gotek X II as an example, it features an LED indicator light recognition system, providing instant and clear feedback on battery status to help you identify charging needs.

So how do you know when to charge your vape device? During use, you can judge the current battery level of Gotek X II by the color of the LED indicator lights: red indicates 0-30% battery, blue indicates 30-60%, and green indicates 60-100%. When it blinks or lights up red, it’s time to consider charging it.

Different brands or products may have slight variations in indicator colors or values, but red, blue, and green are still the main indicator colors for LED battery level indicators. You can check the specific values on the brand’s official website.

OLED Display Screen

For products equipped with a display screen, identifying the battery status is simpler. The OLED display screen provides detailed information on the battery level, similar to a smartphone. This feature allows users to monitor the battery life accurately, ensuring they can recharge the device before it runs out of power.

In ASPIRE products, models such as Veynom LX, Veynom EX, Huracan EX, Huracan LX, RAGA AIO, Vilter S, etc., belong to OLED display screen products. Taking Veynom LX as an example, when you connect it to the charging cable, the screen will display a growing battery icon. After fully charged, the battery icon will display a full charge, and the screen will light up for 10 seconds before turning off. When the device detects a voltage below 3.3 volts, it will display the battery level as 0%, indicating the battery is fully depleted.

Changes in Vaping Experience

Identifying when to charge is simple. When the vapor production noticeably decreases during normal use, or the device takes longer to heat up, or the flavor changes, it may indicate the battery is running low. As the battery level decreases, it may struggle to provide the power needed for optimal device performance, indicating it’s time to charge.

Automatic Shutdown Feature

To protect the battery and ensure user safety, ASPIRE devices may automatically shut down or switch to power-saving mode when the battery level is critically low. This feature prevents over-discharge, prolonging battery life and maintaining device integrity. Additionally, ASPIRE products are equipped with overcharge protection to prevent safety hazards from continuous charging.

Best Practices for Battery Maintenance

Maximizing battery life and ensuring safety requires following the best practices for battery maintenance, including:

Regular charging: Avoid letting the battery fully deplete before charging. Lithium-ion batteries commonly used in e-cigarette devices don’t suffer from memory effects, meaning partial charging won’t negatively impact their lifespan.

Use the correct charger: Always use the charger provided with Aspire devices or recommended by the manufacturer. Using incompatible chargers may risk overcharging, overheating, or damaging the battery. Also, avoid using products while they are charging.

Temperature considerations: Store and use your device in places away from extreme temperatures. High temperatures can accelerate battery degradation, while low temperatures can reduce efficiency.

Regular cleaning: Ensure battery contacts and charging ports on the device are clean and free of debris. This prevents charging issues and ensures consistent power transfer.

Safe storage: When not in use, store the device and its batteries in a cool, dry place. If storing for extended periods, ensure the battery is partially charged (around 50%) to maintain its health.

Conclusion

Understanding when e-cigarette devices are low on battery and how to properly maintain their battery health is crucial for a satisfying vaping experience. By identifying various indicators of low battery (such as LED lights, display messages, and performance changes), users can ensure their devices are always ready for use. Furthermore, following best practices for battery maintenance can prolong device lifespan and promote safe usage. Aspire continues to innovate in the e-cigarette industry, providing devices that combine user-friendly features with advanced battery technology, ensuring the safety of e-cigarette users worldwide.
