It’s a question that AmericaneLiquidStore Customer Service gets every day: “I charged my battery but it still won’t work when I press the button!” And, more often than not, the answer is the same: “did you deactivate the five click protection on your battery?”
Most of the time, people have no idea what we’re talking about when we tell them to deactivate the five-click protection on their battery, but really, this feature is self explanatory—just look at the name! For those of you who still don’t understand what we’re talking about, don’t feel bad: we’re breaking down five click protection throughout this entire blog, to make it simple to understand what it is and the benefits that it offers!
What is it?
As the name would imply, five-click protection is the act of clicking your battery’s button five times to activate and deactivate it. Clicking the button five times rapidly within six seconds causes the button to flash several times, indicating that it has been activated or deactivated.
But what does it mean for the battery to be activated or deactivated? Take a look:
Activated: When five click protection is activated, simply pressing and holding the battery’s button won’t do anything. The battery is “off.”
Deactivated: After clicking the button five times to deactivate five-click protection, your battery will now be “on,” allowing you to use it like normal.
Why have five-click protection at all?
The benefits of five-click protection are great and really handy even when you’re not thinking about them. For starters, with five-click protection activated, you won’t have to worry about accidently pressing the battery’s button while your ecig is in your pocket—an embarrassing situation for anyone when it happens!
Also, in protecting your battery from misfires and random button presses, you’re conserving its battery power, allowing you to use your ecig for longer without wasting juice in between vapes.
Finally, five-click protection is a safety feature—much like the auto shutoff feature on all ecig batteries (which occurs when the button is pressed for 10 seconds or more). Five click can prevent children from atomizing juice if they pick up your stray ecig and can prevent you from absent mindedly holding the button if you’re not vaping!
How do I know if it’s activated or deactivated?
There’s a simple way to test if your five-click protection is engaged or disengaged: try to vape! If you’re able to atomize juice and vape the day away, your five-click protection is turned off and you’re ready to vape—if you hold the button and nothing happens, give it five fast clicks and get on your way to enjoying your favorite eliquid flavor!
Have you ever heard great things about a flavored eLiquid and then finally tried it for yourself, only to realize that you absolutely hate it? It can be maddening, to set your expectations so high for something, only to have them fall short—or worse, for you to completely disagree with all of your friends and fellow vapers about a [...]
Starting this year, when you crack open a version of the Oxford-English Dictionary, you’ll find a new word in the “V” section. That’s right, we’re talking about vaping! It seems as though vaping culture has become so popular, it now has its own terminology that’s recognized within the natural English language. But, what does this mean for the vaping [...]
There are just some things that make good sense: shopping a BOGO sale at your favorite store, closing your windows before it rains, packing your lunch in advance, etc. We tend to do smart things like this without even realizing it most of the time!For all of the vapers out there, we’re certain that there are a few good [...]
By now, vaping is out of the shadows and front and center on the main stage—there are few people who haven’t heard of electronic cigarettes and everything that comes with them. But, while this exceptional smoking alternative is gaining steam opposite traditional cigarettes, there’s still a large group of the smoking population that has yet to give them a [...]
By now, if you’ve been following along with any of the FDA regulatory news regarding ecigs, you should know who CASAA is and what they stand for. And while CASAA is certainly leading the charge to keep impending ecig regulations fair, it’s important to realize that they’re not the only organization with chips on the table. Allow us to introduce [...]
For years, the electronic devices that so many people have used to vape nicotine-infused liquids have been steadfastly known as “electronic cigarettes” or “ecigs” for short. After all, what else would you call something that mimics smoking in the traditional sense? And while most people are comfortable calling their products an ecig, there’s recently been a growing call to action [...]
If you have smoked cigarettes for years, you probably find the habit less enjoyable today than you did in the past. As time passes, many smokers grow increasingly afraid of contracting smoking-related illnesses and progressively annoyed with the everyday effects of smoking, such as foul smelling clothes, coughing and the inability to enjoy themselves in places that prohibit smoking.If you [...]
The more popular e cigarettes become, the more the debate rages over whether they should be treated like cigarettes or viewed as safer than their smoke-producing counterparts. Heathrow Airport in London recently took the latter view, by establishing the world’s first public e Cigarette lounge, where people can congregate to vape like they once gathered to smoke cigarettes. The biggest difference, [...]

You want to have a cigarette: now, not later. It’s one of the reasons e cigs, which rely on flavored american e liquid instead of tobacco, are [...]
