For a person to get the most from an e-cigarette, it is critical that the person understands how to use the e-cigarette or vape safely. There are many aspects that contribute to the general safety of using an electronic cigarette. When using an electronic cigarette, it is always recommended that the original charger that came with the electronic cigarette should be the only charger for charging the e-cigarette. In simple terms, vapers should not use different chargers for their e-cigarettes regardless of whether the chargers fit or not. This is not recommended because it can cause serious personal harm or damage the battery.
The original charger is basically designed to charge the specific electronic cigarette. The specific design means that the charger delivers the correct amount of charge on the battery. If a different charger is used to charge the battery such as a tablet or smartphone charger, this will expose the e-cigarette battery to a very or low high current. When this happens, it could destroy the battery immediately or harm the e-cigarette user. It is also worth mentioning that an electronic cigarette battery should not be left charging overnight or unattended. This will overcharge the battery causing it to become more dangerous to the user.
An e-cigarette battery can also become dangerous if it is physically damaged. While overcharging of the battery is not recommended, undercharging and over-discharging is not recommended either. Any of these aspects can cause instability in the battery and become dangerous to the user. If the battery is physically damaged, it should be discarded. If the battery drops accidently, it should be assessed for physical damage. If there are no clear signs of damage, the battery should be used for a while and then rechecked. A good battery is essential to have because it will determine how long a person will be able to use the electronic cigarette.
