Continue reading to find out more.

What exactly is a cartridge?

The cartridge is a small, cylindrical canister containing oil or liquid concentrate that is used for vaping through inhaling. It is usually made of glass or metal and has a heating element at the bottom. The heating element is what vaporizes the oil or liquid inside the cartridge so you can inhale it. Cartridges also contain absorbent wicks that aid in transporting liquid to the heating element.

The main difference between hitting a cart and smoking a cigarette is that with a cartridge, you are not inhaling smoke. Instead, you are inhaling the vapor.

Does the cartridge have a battery?

Cartridges are made differently; some come with batteries inside, while others do not. If your cartridge does not have a battery, you will need to purchase one to use it. But most cartridges come with batteries these days, which heat the cartridge and cause the vapor to be produced.

The battery in the cart is what will vaporize the liquid inside of it so that you can inhale it. Depending on the battery, some come up as rechargeable and refillable, while others are disposable. It is essential to know which type of battery you have so that you do not overuse it and cause it to die out on you.

How to use a cart without a battery?

You may wonder how you can use your cartridge without a battery, but it’s actually quite simple. The battery on your cartridge is used to heat the coil and produce vapor, so if your battery runs out or is not working, there will be no heat and, therefore, no vapor. However, this does not mean you can not use your cartridge. With some heating tools and alternatives to the battery, you can use your cartridge to produce any vapor. This will heat the coil evenly and produce vapor.

All you need is a source of heat to apply to the cartridge for it to work. Attach and hold the cartridge up to the heat source and wait until it begins to produce vapor. You may need to adjust the position of the cartridge or apply more pressure to get good results. Be sure not to overheat the cartridge, as this will damage the oil inside. Once you have used enough heat, inhale from the mouthpiece, and you can now enjoy the vapor.

Knowing how to hit cart without battery is a skill that every golfer should know. It can come in handy when your battery dies mid-round or when you’re trying to save money by not buying a new one.

How to hit a Dab cart without a battery?

There are many ways to hit dab cartridges without a battery. To do that, you will need to find alternatives to your cartridge battery. Similarly, follow the instructions below for you to smoke or hit your cartridge safely.

USB Cable

By cutting the cable and exposing the metal wires, you can use it as a battery. Twist the metal wires together and make sure that they are touching each other so you can create a circuit. After that, put the cartridge in the connector and wait for it to heat up, and then you can start smoking.


This is probably the most popular way to use a cartridge without a battery. All you need is a lighter and the cartridge itself. You can use this to heat the atomizer or heating coil inside the cartridge. Just heat the tip of the cartridge with the lighter and start taking hits. Be careful not to overheat it.


You can use a candle if you don’t have a lighter. Just light the candle and hold the cartridge close to the flame. Ensure not to touch the flame to the cartridge, as this might cause it to explode. After a few seconds, you can start taking hits from your cartridge as it starts to heat up.


Hitting a cartridge without a battery saves you from the costly expense of repeatedly purchasing batteries. You can accomplish this in various ways, as mentioned above, so try them all out and see which one works best for you. Remember that you won’t get the same amount of vapor production as you would with a battery, but it’s still a great way to enjoy your concentrates. While working on this, you must ensure your safety by taking all necessary precautions.
