Some TRUvapers may already know this, but with #Stoptober2014 in full force and a welcomed inflow of new vapers, we just wanted to go over a few pointers on charging your TRUVAPE devices and how to get the most out of your batteries.


So here are a few tips:

1) Only use TRUVAPE chargers when charging your TRUVAPE devices. 

Other chargers, including phone, ipad and many other chargers, tend to have a much stronger voltage in them and consequently burn out your battery. Those chargers are far too strong for your devices and can be dangerous, as I am sure you have seen in the press. It’s better to be safe than sorry, so use your head and use your TRUVAPE charger.

Using a non-TRUVAPE charger will also cancel the warranty on your device and your device will then be non-refundable.

2) Do not charge your TRUVAPE device for more than 4 hours, any longer may cause your battery to burn out and lower its overall lifespan.

So once the light on your device has turned green, take your device off charge and lock until you next vape.

3) Ensure your battery is screwed on tightly to the base of the coil when reconnecting them.

If the battery is too loose the device may not work to its full potential but still use the same amount of power from the battery.

Sooner or later, this may cause the battery itself to burn out and need replacing a lot sooner than normal.

4) Before reconnecting your battery to the base of the coil, use a cotton wool bud to clean the battery well for about 5 seconds.

This ensures that there is no possible liquid build up in the well and that you get the full use of battery power from your TRUVAPE device.

5) Like with muscles, batteries need regular exercise. If devices are not used for long periods of time, the battery might stop working. So keep vaping!!

6) When you are not using your TRUHYBRID, lock your device. 5 clicks…don’t forget.

7) If you are not using your device, store it in a safe place. This is absolutely essential is you have young children or pets about the house – always keep it stored out of reach!


Keep batteries out of direct sunlight and store at room temperature. Try not to drop your battery and never leave batteries near liquids, as we all know electricity and water do not mix.

So there you go, a few tips to get the best out of your e-cigarette battery.
