So you’re out and about, having a good time and enjoying your day when suddenly your vape pen battery dies. It’s not a fun feeling to have the power of your device taken away from you. This blog article will explain everything you need to know about the battery of a SMOK vape pen, and you will also find out if the battery is replaceable or not.

How to change the battery in a SMOK vape pen?

A SMOK vape pen is a battery-powered vaporizer that uses a rechargeable battery as its source of power. The vaping pens come with a pre-installed lithium-ion battery and can be charged using a USB cable.

The SMOK vape pen is perfect for beginners who want to start in the world of vaping. However, if you are new to vaping, it’s important that you understand the basic information about batteries for this specific device.

Unfortunately, this sort of vape pen battery cannot be replaced because it does not have a removable one. It seems there is no way to open a SMOK Vape Pen to replace its battery. Attempting to open the casing and try a SMOK vape battery replacement could be dangerous and not recommended.

But, if you are knowledgeable enough and have the perfect skills in electronics, you could try to change the battery yourself. Just remember that by doing this, you are risking your safety and the warranty of your device (if the warranty is still applicable). Some have tried to open their device out of curiosity by popping off the bottom cap using pliers and a flathead screwdriver. But in the end, they were unsuccessful and were left with a broken device as it’s impossible to remove the battery because it’s wrapped by some ground wire, leaving no room for prying.

If you notice that the battery of your vape pen is malfunctioning, it is still best to check with the manufacturer’s website or with the place where you bought it to know how they are going to replace your device.

What kind of battery does a SMOK vape pen use?

A SMOK vape pen features an eGO style battery with 22mm in diameter and 165 mAh battery capacity. Its battery is placed inside the cartridge at the base of its tank. The battery compartment is sealed, and it cannot be changed.

This device is equipped with a light indicator that will prompt you if its battery is running low. When it starts blinking, you need to recharge the battery as soon as possible by screwing it on its USB charger.

How to prolong the battery life of a vape pen?

The battery lifespan in a vape pen depends on various factors, such as how much it is being used, the quality of the battery, and how it was maintained. A vape pen with an average battery can last anywhere between 300-400 puffs per charge, which could take about 45 minutes to 1 hour. Once the vaping session is over, you need to plug in your charger and charge it until the battery is full.

Make sure you use the charger that matches your vape pen and avoid charging for too long (overcharging can damage the device). When you are finished vaping, switch off your device immediately to prevent overheating.

Do not use the vape pen while it is being charged, and avoid charging your device while you are asleep to prevent unexpected fires. Also, do not leave a dead battery in your vape pen because this can cause leakage, which damages the atomizer. In case of damage or leaking, replace with a new one immediately & take extra care when handling the device.

Avoid exposing your vape pen to heat sources such as hot water, sunlight, or direct heat from closed appliances. Also, avoid dropping your device on hard surfaces and keep it away from children who might mistake it for a toy.

Be sure to keep your vape pen away from water and humidity, especially if it is not waterproof or submersible. If the device gets wet, make sure you dry it thoroughly before using it again. Also, do not use harsh chemicals like alcohol on the device since this can damage its exterior.

Do not attempt to open the vape pen yourself since the device contains small parts that can get damaged easily. In case of a breakdown, visit your nearest SMOK service center for help.

In conclusion, equipping yourself with the proper knowledge of how your vape pen works is the best way to maintain its life. The more you know about your vape device, including its battery lifespan and what makes it up, the better you will be at preventing problems like a bad battery or juice leaks from happening in the first place. This way, the vape pen will be able to serve you for a longer period of time and with better results.
