Battery Safety

   It is important to take precautions when handling batteries.

   Here are some general safety warnings/rules:

  • When charging your battery via USB, never over tighten in the charger
  • Never over-tighten atomisers onto your battery, screw only until contact is made
  • Remove batteries from the USB immediately the light turns green
  • Never leave a charging battery unattended
  • Always charge your battery on a fire retardant surface
  • No matter which type of battery you use, you should discontinue its use if damaged
  • Never use a battery with frayed or damaged wires, or torn insulation.
  • Never use a LiPo battery that has visible damage to its outer covering.
  • Never use a LiPo battery that feels soft, or has swollen.
  • Immediately cease use of the battery if, whilst using, charging or storing the battery, the battery emits an unusual smell, feels hot, changes colour or shape or appears abnormal in any other way. Should any of these things happen you should dispose of the battery in the correct manner. Never send a faulty battery in the post.
