E-Cigarette Batteries and Chargers: What You Need to Know
The battery is the most important part of the e- cig experience. There are many different choices in the e-cigarette market when it comes to batteries, so before you buy you should get at least a general idea about what you can choose from. South Beach Smoke e-cigs are known as 2-piece units, because they work with a battery and a cartridge. They are lithium ion batteries, and are known as the most powerful you can get. Our selection of chargers ranges from the standard wall charger, to the highly versatile USB charger, there is also a car adapter charger available, as well as our highly popular Personal Charging Case (PCC).
There are 2 e-cigarette battery sizes we offer: Standard, which is 2.5 inches long, and lasts around 300-400 puffs. High-Capacity is 3.25 inches long, and lasts 500-600 puffs. The color options are black and white, so you have a little more variety than typical cigarettes, if you want to mix it up some.
You can get both with either manual or automatic switch design, and it’s pretty much your preference when it comes to it. Automatics are the simpler of the two, and all you do when using them is puff on the mouth end. It will turn on automatically, and shut off automatically when you are through. Automatic batteries are known to have a slightly longer life, while manuals are known to have a higher level of vapor production. Manual switch batteries require you to press a little button during your vaping. You press it to turn it on, as you vape. When you release your finger, it shuts off automatically. Many people appreciate this because the feeling of having more control lets them enjoy it more, and relieves any worry about your e-cig turning on at any random moment. While our batteries are very well made, and generally do not have issues like that, it’s nice to know that it won’t be happening!
It’s always a great idea to have a few batteries, most e-smoke users will absolutely attest to this. The thing with batteries is that they can get really comfortable after you’ve used them for a while, and this makes them easy to forget. Say you always use them in bed at night, it would be really easy to wake up the next morning and leave your e-cig on your nightstand, potentially leaving the house without it. Having an extra battery plus charger in your bag plus a charger such as the car adapter or USB charger would really help you out.
