THE GASOLINE OF THE VAPING WORLD
RECYCLE LI BATTERIES
Li-ion batteries are pushing humanity to think about the world differently. "Reuse rather than dispose" is the new motto. Li-ion batteries are the green gasoline behind solar farms and electric vehicles.
In the world of rechargeable batteries, the lithium ion type last longer than most. Most 18650 cells are rated for between 300 and 500 cycles. That means your cell can charge up to 4.2 volts, and discharge down to 2.5 - 2.8 volts, a maximum of 300 to 500 times without too much much loss in performance. When an 18650 cell nears the end of its life, the performance loss is sudden and fast.
Considering the millions of people vaping in the world, problems are thankfully low. However, a number of incidents have arisen from misuse of mods and poor quality merchandise, ranging from house fires to vape devices exploding. Whatever vape kit you use for vaping, they all contain batteries with the potential for danger, and should be treated with care. Here’s everything you need to know about minimizing the risks when using the various types of mods available.
