All vapourisers use either removable or in-built high drain batteries which can cause damage if improperly handled. There is always a risk of your batteries malfunctioning, whether using a regulated or mechanical mod. The main considerations are the physical condition of your batteries and the current (Amps) you are putting through them.
Choosing The Right Battery
You should only use Li-Ion cells that are suitable for vaping, without exception. You need to use batteries with a continuous Amp discharge rating above the levels you'll be vaping at. Tools like Steam Engine's Ohms law calculator are great for checking if you are vaping within safe levels.
Taking Care Of Your Wraps
Battery wraps and the small insulator at the positive end keep your battery from shorting. If your battery wraps show any signs of wear and tear, always err on the side of caution and get them re-wrapped. We offer battery wrapping free of charge at the Nimbus retail store. This can also be done at home with the correct size battery wraps and a heat source.
Mech Mod Considerations
Using mechanical mods (hybrid tubes in particular) increase the risk of battery failure. Unlike a regulated mod, these devices offer no short circuit or overheating protection. Being diligent with your battery wraps, coil resistance and Amperage is essential for your safety.
If in doubt, always pop in to your local vape shop to make sure you're vaping safely!
