Vape batteries should be handled with care. Leaving a battery charging unattended or under extreme temperatures could be dangerous. Vape batteries aren’t different than other batteries found in other devices.
There are many types of battery and perhaps you have heard a lot about 18650 batteries and 20700. Do you know why it is called 18650 battery? It’s simple, the 18650 battery is a lithium-ion cell classified by its 18mm x 65mm size, which is slightly larger than an AA battery. The same applies to other batteries, i.e. a 20700 battery is a 20mm x 70mm size battery.
Batteries need maintenance and, eventually, you will need to replace them when the battery starts dying quicker than expected.
Keep the Battery Wrap in Good Conditions
The battery wrap is the battery’s outer layer. Vape batteries come with battery wraps that help to protect the interior of the battery.
Therefore, if you notice that the battery wrap is damaged, you should proceed to rewrap it. This process will not cost you that much money and it will drastically improve your battery and vaping safety. In addition, many vape shops will rewrap your batteries for free.
However, if you want to do it by yourself, the process is very easy, and it just takes a few minutes:

Only purchase batteries from trustworthy suppliers as they would go out of their way to make sure that their batteries are original.

Do not throw batteries in pockets or bags when you are not using them. Instead, get yourself some cheap plastic battery cases, as unprotected batteries may be short-circuited when they come into contact with metal objects.

In addition, battery chargers can also be damaged over time. For example, a battery charger can cause electrical shorts and accidents.
