Batteries are the basis for any eCigarette and are the crucial components that allow you to atomizer eLiquid into vapor. Batteries come in a range of sizes, shapes and amperages, meaning there’s something out there for everyone. You’ll notice that as your vaping experience becomes more in-depth, you’ll require larger batteries or even several batteries to help get you through the day: having a long life battery or a backup can mean the difference between vaping and not vaping!
The answer to this question all depends on which battery you’re using! Because batteries are so varied within the vaping world, the one you’re using may or may not last as long as other out there.

Like any other battery out there, eCigarette batteries are in need of a good charging after they’ve been depleted. Charging an eCig battery is simple enough: you just have to connect it to a power source. Generally, this is done by using a USB charging adapter to plug the battery into your computer. There are also wall chargers and AC adapters that can be useful in charging your eCig on the go or just through a wall outlet.
Like everything else in the world, there comes a time when eCigarette batteries are no longer useful. Generally, how you take care of your batteries and how frequently you use them will dictate how long their life is. There are several signs that can be easily observed when your battery is on its last legs, however.
One sure sign that your battery is nearing death is that it doesn’t hold a charge as long as it should. Typically, when your battery has been put through its paces, it will begin to hold a charge less and less: 2 hours when it should be working for 6 hours, as an example. It’s natural for a battery to lose some of its abilities over the course of its life, but once it reaches about 50% overall capacity from what it should be, we recommend getting a new unit.
Another sign that the battery you’re using needs to be replaced is a tendency to get very hot very fast. Usually, you should be able to hold down the button on your battery for a good amount of time (+5 seconds) before it starts to get too hot. If your old battery starts to get hot at 2-5 seconds, it’s a sign that the unit is working very hard to maintain a working rhythm.
