Vaping is a satisfying alternative to traditional cigarettes and its popularity constantly grows. Like all new technologies though, battery life can make or break your entire vaping experience.
The range of battery life in available devices today are what you might imagine: from charges that last a few draws to those that can give you an entire day of constant vaping! Similar to cell phones batteries, these types follow the traditional rule of "the bigger the better." You may see smaller e-cigarette style batteries which typically don't offer as much battery life and flexibility as say for instance MODs, which can be up to the size of a cell phone. There are batteries that are somewhere in between those too, commonly called "pens", because that is about the size they are.
With regular use, an e-cig-sized battery can last a few hours and requires rotating with other spare batteries to ensure availability. This doesn't go into the topic of refillable tanks or "cartomizers", but with this size vaping unit, you will likely be refilling on a regular a basis (or more!) as you are switching out your battery.
Pens typically last up to half-a-day with regular usage and usually have a tank attachment that you fill with your preferred e-juice. Charging these is typically done with a micro USB cable that can be either attached to a PC or to an outlet.
The option that offers the most flexibility in regards to length of available time to vape are usually in MODs, which are larger (usually still pocket sized) batteries with options to control temperature, power output and airflow options. Because of these factors, you are able to have extended battery life for the most part. (NOTE: If you are sub-ohm vaping, you'll need to have the right MOD for it, and the proper battery that can handle this style. This is because you would be vaping below 1ohm.)
Each of the battery options available to the vaping community can fill the needs of casual vapers, hobbyists and "hard-core" users alike. It is worth investing time to research and shop for the battery that is right for your vaping needs here at Vapin' in the Cape.
