There have been a lot of questions regarding 510 thread batteries and the best way to charge them. Below are some tips that will ensure your battery is properly charged, along with common mistakes that you will want to avoid.
Using The Charger
It should first be emphasized that it is crucially important to only use the charger which comes with the vape battery. You should also make use of a regular USB charger as opposed to the rapid charger. Some in the vaping community try to cut corners when it comes to this, only to end up damaging their lithium-ion battery and possibly frying the processor itself. Never, under any circumstances, use the rapid charger of a smartphone, and always use a standard USB port, car charger or wall based adapter. Additionally, always ensure that the voltage of the battery is a match for the charger.
In some instances when vape batteries are purchased they will be accompanied by either an amperage or high voltage charger. Those who have questions regarding replacing the charger should contact someone who can help them choose the best one for their battery. It is also important to select the correct vape cartridge. These cartridges come in four generations, with the original being those made from plastic or polycarbonate. These older cartridges are most effective with batteries that are low voltage.
Charging Your 510 Thread Battery The Right Way
To minimize the chances of damaging the thread battery, you will want to follow the right instructions when charging it. A number of guides and videos have been posted online, some which are good, and others not so much. While charging the battery seems fairly straightforward, many in the vaping community, especially those that are new, get it wrong.
For batteries which are button-less, that have a charger which is 3.7 volts, you will want to avoid screwing your battery on the charger initially. It is common for novices to attach the battery tighter than it needs to be, which can become a real problem as the connection plate will be pushed down, resulting in a poor cartridge connection.
Additionally, you will want to avoid using a tablet and fast chargers, since they place far too much power, and may fry the battery. The wiser approach for charging the battery is to use either a common block charger which is five volts, or a laptop charger. The USB charger should be plugged in first, after which a green light should come on (the light may be another color depending on the device). Next, you will want to screw on the battery. The light may change color at this point, which means that you’ve successfully obtained a connection. This connection can be maintained with ease, without damaging the connection plate, and once it’s finished, it can then be used.
