Types of electronic cigarette batteries
The battery is like the heart of any e-cigarette because it keeps the device running by powering the atomizer and transforming the nicotine based e-liquid into thick clouds of delicious vapor. But let’s focus more on these electronic cigarette batteries and learn a bit about the ones used by some of the key brands on the market.
First of all, as you probably know there are two types of batteries: automatic and manual. To keep things simple, automatic batteries power on the device each time the user inhales through the tip while on the other hand manual batteries require the user to keep a button pressed while puffing.
Another classification is on the criteria of size. Essentially the smaller the battery, the lower the mAh (milliampers per hour). This translates as the shorter the battery the more often it will need recharging. But bigger is not always better, mostly in the case of users that like their devices to have the same look and feel as traditional analog cigarettes. These kinds of vapers would always sacrifice autonomy for looks and that’s why vendors have at least to sizes of batteries available for their starter kits.
The other key part that comes into play with the different sizes is the voltage holding capabilities of each battery. The higher the voltage, the higher the watts, and the warmer the vape.
