Headed to the Beach? Let's talk about safety!

Posted by The Splicer on 5/23/2016 to Battery Safety

Floridians love beach trips!   Cool water, hot sun, and our friends/family to make a big splash. We always pack for a full day.  Sunscreen, towels, chairs, umbrella, cooler, sand toys for the kids, and cold drinks are always on our list.  Over the last year or so, many have switched to vaping from smoking.  This means we will most likely be bringing our vape supplies with us too.   Here are some tips to keep your vape gear safe, and not allow it to become a dangerous disaster. 




Lithium batteries are contained in many of our favorite devices:  cell phones, bluetooth headsets, tablets, vaporizers, and many more. These batteries if mistreated, can become a very dangerous item. In the best case scenario, they will just stop working. Worst case scenario they can possibly explode. That doesn't make these devices immediately dangerous. If you are not careful with them though, they can become a hazard and cause serious injury.  Lithium batteries do not like extreme temperatures (hot or cold ones). So if you're hot, your batteries are hot. That could be a recipe for disaster.


So lets list some things not to do with Lithium Batteries:
 
- Do NOT leave them in a car (70 degrees can quickly turn into 100 while in a car)
- Do NOT leave them in direct Sunlight.
- Do NOT get them wet.
- Do NOT simply cover them with a towel.
- Do NOT store batteries with loose change, or keys
- Do NOT forget to check up on them! 

The last one is VITAL, no matter which route you take to protect your battery. Make sure you check it often to ensure its not overheating.

Personally, I find a nice spot under the pier, it's cool with no sunlight.  I keep my vape stored in a nice sand-proof bag.  Just be sure to be considerate of other bystanders while vaping. This also makes for a great escape when your getting too hot.
 


There are many things you can do to protect your devices though. So lets cover some of those now:

- DO keep your batteries in a cool place.
- DO bring an extra cooler with a moisture-resistant seal, to keep your devices out of the heat.
- DO bring them into the shade every hour or so, to make sure they are not overheating.
- DO use a heat-resistant case if you have one available.
- DO find a shady spot to minimize the amount of heat you have to protect your vape from.
- DO return your batteries to normal temperature before using them.
- DO bring extra E-Juice!

Obviously that last one is more for your enjoyment.  If you have not shopped with us in the last few months, you may not be aware of our new prices.  Most of our 30ml Bottles are now just $9.99, with our most expensive 60ml only being $24.99.
There's a nice range there for extra juice.

We also have items to help keep sand away from your vape as you constantly reach into your bag.  Small, Medium, Large, and APV cases are available online, and in both retail locations.  These cases can help keep your vaping supplies away from excess sand, and keep it in one place.

If an unfortunate event happens and one of your devices/batteries gets damaged, come see us and allow us the chance to fix it.  Small fixes like cleaning contacts, or airflow, are done at no charge.  Larger damages like separated wires, we can send off for repair at our warehouse.  Any warehouse based repairs carry the $14.99 repair fee.  If repairing your device isn't an option, or if you just want to upgrade and replace it all together, we will do our best to assist you in finding the best device for you, and teaching you how to use its features, functions, and safety.

Thanks always for reading! 

Personally, I hope your beach day ends like the picture below. 

Vape Safe, and have fun!
