  • Battery Awareness and How To Ensure Battery Safety?

    Joe switched over to vaping! He thought it would be a good idea to go with a tube mech mod! So he bought a poorly designed cheap clone tube mech mod and bought the crappiest 50 cents cloned battery from China.

    Then he thought it would be a great idea to modify the switch of the mod. So he did! Then he thought it is just cool to build super low sub-ohm on his atty! He followed some videos and made a ten core 0.7 AWG wrapped with 0.6 AWG fatbum wire on top to make a nice freakish looking build that he didn't even care to check the resistance.

    While he was learning the builds, he thought that switch lock on his mod was a nuisance, so he further modified. The other day, Joe picked up his freshly charged battery, inserted in the mod, hooked his atty and off he goes out there to showoff how cool he is and how big clouds he can blow, and that would probably prove how big his pathetic little willie is. And when the time came, guess what, he mistakenly stick his mod on the wrong end and fired!

    Moral of the story, don't be like Joe

    How to avoid potential danger with batteries:

    1. Don't just buy the cheapest stuff. The cheapest may not be the best. Read reviews, ask questions, know the gear and obey the laws. You may have to shell out a few extra bucks, but it is better than shelling out limbs

    2. Buy batteries from the BEST source available. If possible, buy directly from LG, Samsung, etc. If they don't sell smaller quantity, ask them about their direct distributors. Buy from them. If not that, then do your research, read reviews, there are a few good sellers like BatteryBro and many others. Buy from them.

    3. DO NOT carry bare batteries in your pocket. Always use a battery storage case to carry your batteries around. Just look up on Ebay, you can find many for a couple of hundred rupees. 18650 storage cases will keep the battery protected from any unwanted contact with keys, coins, etc.

    4. DO NOT mod your mod! Unless you know what you are doing, do not play with the way a mod is designed. In fact, research on how you can make it more secure by using insulation paper and all. But for heaven's sake, DO NOT mess around with the switch and other parts. Take proper care of your gear. Use the lock while carrying it in your pocket or bag.

    5. Do NOT use a Hybrid Mod without any knowledge of the mod. If you don't know much about a hybrid mod, do not use it. Hybrid mods make a direct contact with the battery's positive terminal. If you use a wrong atomizer that does not have a protruding 510 center pin, you are about to directly short the battery.

    6. Do NOT use batteries that have their wrap torn or damaged. Either get rid of such a battery or re-wrap it immediately. Love your batteries and take good care of them. Charge them with a good charger and NEVER leave your batteries charging overnight. Always charge your batteries under surveillance and remove them off the charger when you see them fully charged.

    7. Use proper gear like an Ohm Checker to ensure that your build is error-free. DO NOT be lazy and assume that everything's great since you are a bit experienced.

    8. Most of all, STOP spreading nonsense stories. It may be the anti-vaping propagandists spreading all these fake news and stories of mods blasting. Do not trust each and every story that's forwarded to you. Cross-check to find out if the incident actually occurred. And then try to put some thinking into why it occurred rather than simply forwarding misinformation. Your actions may add up to destroy this great alternative to smoking.
