A frequently asked question about e-cigarette most time is how long does a cartomizer battery takes to charge?

The main variable to consider when answering this particular question comes down to the battery’s manufacturer; different manufacturers focus on different quality levels and e-cig battery sizes. With that being said, most 900 mAh batteries are good for roughly 800 puffs, 650 mAh batteries for 400 puffs, and 1100 mAh batteries for 1,000 puffs. Once again, those numbers are general estimations that can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer as much as from user to user.

Depending on the type of cartomizer you are using and how you maintain your cartomizer that will determine the rate at which your battery charge. If you are making use of a low resistance cartomizer, this simply means the battery life of that cartomizer cannot be all that long cause a low resistance cartomizer essentially draws a lot of power from the battery. In other words the low the resistance the higher the voltage.

Due to the fact that low resistance atomizers draw on more of the battery’s power, they tend to burn out more quickly, as well as requiring the battery to be charged more frequently.

Another factor that may determine the rate of charging in cartomizer is, if the electronic cigarette devices use removable, rechargeable batteries. Most electronic cigarette batteries have the physical battery permanently enclosed in a casing. The entire unit is then charged as a whole. Mods, on the other hand, allow for the batteries to be removed from the casing and charged separately. Although mods are generally much thicker and larger than standard electronic cigarettes, they do have their benefits.

Also the mah of a battery determines how long a battery will take to charge. mAh stands for milliampere-hour. This is a unit of measurement for electronic devices, such as electronic cigarette batteries. There are six primary mAh sizes of vapourizer batteries: 280mAh, 380mAh, 650mAh, 900mAh, 1,000mAh, and 1,100mAh. The bigger the mAh, the longer/larger the battery will be and the longer the battery will last before it needs to be charged.

Approximately Battery Charging Time

650MAH= 1.5-2 HOURS

900MAH= 2-3 HOURS

1100MAH=2.5-3.5 HOURS

1300MAH= 3-4 HOURS

1600MAH= 3.5-4 HOURS+

These has been approximate value of charging each mAh respectively provided that the cartomizer batteries are original.

How to Charge a Vape Battery

When your battery runs low power the LED tip will begin to flash several times indicating a re-charge is reuired. To charge your battery, remove your USB charger from the starter kit box. Unscrew your cartridge from the battery and place it in the kit box for use again later. Screw your battery into the USB charger, then plug your USB into your computer to begin charging. Your computer needs to be powered-on to enable charging. The VIP battery LED tip will stay lit while charging. When the LED goes out your battery is fully charged, and you can eject the USB charger and unscrew your battery. Screw your refill cartridge back on the battery and you are ready to ‘smoke’ your VIP E-Cig again!
