Battery Care Information
It is very important to look after the batteries you use for vaping - battery safety is paramount. Both built-in batteries and removable batteries must be treated with care to avoid unnecessary stress on your vape batteries which can lead to problems such as overheating and in rare cases venting. Vape batteries, like any rechargeable battery (e.g.mobile phones), will only have problems if they are not treated correctly. This is why it is important to purchase from a trusted New Zealand retailer to ensure you have adequate information to use your gear correctly!
How To Charge A Vape Correctly
Use the correct charger for your device. Each device comes with a charging cable. It is very important to connect your charger to a suitable wall plug. DO NOT USE HIGH AMP WALL CHARGERS. Wall chargers such as those used to fast charge Samsung phones are NOT suitable for charging device. The amp output on the wall plug should be no more than 1-2 amps depending on what mod you are using. Check your device instruction manual to ascertain the level of amps it can handle. If you're not sure please ask us by getting in touch or just use a 0.5 amp wall charger.
Always leave your device in a safe place away from flammable materials. Do not leave your device in direct sunlight as this can lead to overheating.
Handle with care
Keep your device safe. Dropping your device can cause internal damage that can lead to venting. We recommend using a silicone sleeve with your device to minimise the possibility of damage.
Companies that produce counterfeit or "clone" products do not take appropriate safety precautions as there is no chance any faulty products can be traced back to the factory they were made in. This means that clone mods are likely to lack many safety features that authentic mods contain. VAPO strictly sells authentic products. We go out of our way to ensure that every item that is listed on our website is authentic.
Do not overcharge
Most devices (all models available on our website) have auto shut off function that stops the device from overcharging. This is the same for phones and most rechargeable devices. Despite these safety features we do not recommend leave ANY electronic device on charge for an extended period of time. Taking your device off charge once it is full is the safest practice and we recommend taking this course of action.
