Best Battery for Vaping
There are two common batteries for e-cigarettes, one is built-in battery, the other is removable battery.
Built-in batteries are inside, which can’t be taken out of the e-cigarette, just like the cell phone battery. Removable batteries can be found everywhere in life, such as power supplies for toys and remote controls. It is worth mentioning that it is not a battery specifically designed for e-cigarettes, so a suitable battery is very important.
The choice of battery depends mainly on the power we need, which is the maximum power we use to vape, and then select the battery with the longest life span in the appropriate models. The removable battery has two principal characteristics, capacity(mAh) and maximum discharge current(A). The first one represents the battery life span, and the latter represents power. In a general way, the higher the power, the shorter the life. You need to make a choice between power and life span.
There are two types of brands for the removable battery: original and rewrapped. Original batteries are generally produced by the following manufacturers, and their trademarks are engraved on the package of batteries, such as Sony, LG, Samsung, and Panasonic/Sanyo. Some brands are rewrapped batteries. They rewrapped the original battery and sold it as a new brand. I prefer the original battery.
Some people may tell you that the rated power of the battery is too low; you can use more power. You can use 20A on a 15A battery in some cases, but this will reduce its life span and increase the risk. This increase in risk is difficult to quantify. There are many influencing factors, such as usage intensity, battery type, battery condition, etc. As long as you do not use the battery according to the specifications, there is a possibility of danger. You should know that these batteries are not explicitly intended for e-cigarette, the usage and preservation methods matter.

2. Line up batteries with all the positive ends facing in the same direction.
3. Keep the box out of the reach of children.
4. After the battery is exhausted, please remove it from the device and charge it as soon as possible to avoid accidents such as a short circuit.
