A battery is one of the main elements of a vapor cigarette. The battery powers a vapor cigarette atomizer which turns the liquid in a cartridge into vapor. A vapor cigarette battery determines flavor, heat and mist, hence accounts for the quality of smoking/vaporing experience. Buying your first vapor cigarette can be an overwhelming experience as there is a big variety to choose from. A vapor cigarette battery type is one of the main factors to consider.
VAPOR CIGARETTE BATTERY SIZE
A battery used in a vapor cigarette determines its size: the bigger the battery the bigger the cigarette. Mini vapor cigarettes contain small lithium ion batteries that allow for their conventional tobacco cigarette look. Medium vapor cigarettes use large and more powerful batteries. AVP (advanced personal vaporizer) or Mods models are renowned for their large batteries that allow higher amp output and customizable voltage.
VAPOR CIGARETTE BATTERY CAPACITY
Vapor cigarettes come in different power capacity. Vapor cigarette battery capacity mainly depends on its size. Naturally, mini vapor cigarettes are less powerful than medium or APV (advanced personal vaporizer) range since they house smaller batteries. The mini vapor cigarette battery ranges from 125mAh size up to about 280mAh, from 45 minutes to 2 hours for some users. A battery of the medium range vapor cigarette can vary from 650 mAh to 1100mAh. The batteries with capacity around 1,000mAh can last up to 8 hours for some vapers. Charging the medium range battery can take 2-3 hours.
VPA’s use batteries that are big enough to make a vapor cigarette bulky looking and to put some ‘vapers” off. However, these ‘big’ batteries have a hugely extended battery life in comparison to mini cigarettes. They can last for a day or even a few. Another advantage is that they mostly use generic 3.7 volt lithium ion cells–a type of rechargeable battery that can be bought from many sources. In addition, some high-end VPA’s allow voltage adjustment, typically, from 3.0 to 6.0 volts.
BATTERY LED LIGHT
To make the transition from tradition tobacco cigarettes easier, mini vapor cigarettes are constructed in the mold of traditional cigarettes – same length, same shape, and even same color. Furthermore, they have a LED light on the end of a battery that is lit when a vaper takes a puff. In addition, the LED will flash a warning when a battery needs recharging or when too many puffs of an e cigarette are taken in quick succession. In addition to standard white or orangey color, LED colors now include funky blue, green and pink. These colors can prove useful in no-smoking areas since they can not be easily confused with tobacco cigarettes.
