What is a Battery?
A Battery is one of the three major parts of a Vape Pen. The vape pen battery provides the device with the power to vaporizer the materials of your choosing. It is important not to get a battery that is too powerful for your vaporizer, this could lead to a burn out in the cartridge making it unusable.
How Does the Battery Work?
Now that you know what the battery is, let’s dive into how they work.
As stated previously, a battery is a major component to the parts of a Vape Pen. The others include the atomizer or cartridge and the mouthpiece; together they form a workable vape pen. The battery is the largest and most prominent part of the vape pen. This is where you are going to get your power for your device and where you can use customizable functions such as variable voltage and temperature control.
Typically to turn your battery on, all you would do is press the power button five times rapidly. This will activate your vape pen and allow you to then set the features for your preferences. Note, when turning on the device, you have to press the power button five time quickly or the battery will not register the action.
If it is a device that has no buttons at all, usually you would tap the bottom of the battery to active it. You will also tap the vape pen five times rapidly.
Once your device is on, ready and set to your perfect adjustments, you can then attach the atomizer or cartridge as well as the mouthpiece together to use your vape pen.
Types of Batteries: Buttonless Batteries, Batteries with a Button, Auto Draw Batteries and Variable Voltage Vape Pen Batteries
Batteries come in different makes and models for different types of vapers. There are Buttonless Batteries for the users who don’t want to deal with any hassles. Batteries with a power Button which allows the user to press the button to get things started. Auto Draw for the vaper on the go that actives their device with a simple inhale. And Variable Voltage Batteries that offer customers a great range of customizability. Whichever battery you choose to go with, each have their own special set of advantages that will elevate your vaping experience.
Most commonly referred to as Buttonless Batteries or slim vape pens, these devices employ no buttons at all. These types of batteries allow you to regulate or operate your vape pen minus buttons. A buttonless battery is designed to allow the user to simple draw from the device to start the vaping process. Typically, these batteries will employ voltage settings up to 3.3V and require the user to tap the bottom of the vape pen to cycle through voltage settings. Buttonless batteries are convenient as well as easy to use making them particularly great for a beginning user. They are also compatible with most 510 threaded cartridges and with no buttons, you don’t run the risk of them accidentally turning on while in your pocket or purse.
Batteries with Buttons
The second most common vape battery type is Batteries with Buttons. These batteries allow the user to press and hold on the power button while you inhale to vape. To turn these batteries, on you typically will click the button five times rapidly in a row. The same process is used when turning the battery off. These types of batteries are normally a standard voltage, which is about 3.7V and work great with most pre-filled and loadable vape cartridges. With a battery that employ buttons, you are ensured that your battery will completely turn off while not in use and it give you more security as well as control of the batteries’ state.
Variable Voltage Batteries
Variable Voltage Batteries provide the user with the ultimate control over your sessions. With variable voltage batteries, you can switch between different voltages with a click of the power button or a dial at the bottom of the battery. This lets you choose how you want your battery to perform instead of going with the already established functions. These batteries are compatible with almost every 510 threaded cartridges, making it great for switching out or swapping your cartridge for a variety of flavors. If you prefer larger hits with grand vape clouds, you can crank up the voltage. Or if you want a light, refreshing sessions you can lower the voltage. Everything is based off how you want it.
Buying a Battery
A good Battery is a must if you want to have incredible, unforgettable sessions and top performance. The battery is the component that stores and transfers the correct amount of power to the cartridge or atomizer. Once it sends power to the atomizer, a wire coil or ceramic element heats up the material of your choice that is held in the cartridge. Simply put, the battery is the power source that stores power and manages the power transfer to the atomizer during the vaping process.
The average Battery is going to range anywhere from $10 to $50 dollars depending on the type of battery. Depending on the type and style of battery, some can cost less in price or more expensive. Overall, with a battery you can expect longer battery life, customizability, mobility and top performance.
