Batteries should always be looked after in e-cigs so to prevent cleaning it very often/poor performance, so keep them as dry as possible when changing liquids as any liquid (even if it’s dried) can cause a lack of connection to the other components of the e cig. This can have numerous negative affects including the requirement to have to ‘draw harder’ on the ecig for it to work as normal (as the voltage is decreased) and can damage the battery over time.
What you’ll need –
Rubbing alcohol, cotton wool bud, cocktail stick
Step 1 - Remove the battery fully from the e-cig. Although ecig’s differ in appearance their batteries can all be cleaned in the same way. Dip the cotton wool tip into the alcohol so it’s fully submerged and clean around the top rim as that is where most dirt usually collates. It’s best to hold the battery downwards as you do this so any alcohol that gets onto the battery drips off.
Step 2 - It’s best to then follow this by using a cocktail stick (any stick that doesn’t conduct electricity i.e. not metal!) and then clean the top of the battery, removing any residue. Be prepared as this can get through a few cocktail sticks!
Step 3– Although rubbing alcohol dries very fast, ensure the battery is totally dry before putting back in your e-cig. A simple wipe with a dry cloth will suffice.
And there you go, 3 simple steps to ensure your batteries last longer and don’t lose any voltage. It’s is recommended you do this every 2-4 weeks, dependant on how frequently you use your e-cig. Happy vaping!
