This is a guide for new e smokers who are new to batteries. An e-cigarette battery is one of the most important parts to power your electronic cigarette. Before you make a decision, there are some basic information about batteries you must get to know:
1. What battery voltage you prefer to choose?
If you ask a veteran vaper that why a dry burnt or slight flavor happens, he/she would suggest you to check the voltage of your battery before a vape. For a regular vaping, the voltage ranges from 3.3v to 4.8v. And this always comes with a 1.5Ω or 2.2Ω coil. Do remember that the voltage you choose must be equal or higher than the e-cigarette need.
2. What battery’s capacity you require?(mAh)
The formulate of battery capacity is:
Battery capacity= power consumption x working time /Battery Voltage
The capacity of a battery varies for a couple of reasons, like the size of a battery, the weight control. For regular vapers, the market offers 650mAh, 750mAh, 850mAh, 1000mAh, 1300mAh capacity.
