E-cig power units, or vape batteries, are one of the core components of your e-cig kit. They provide the power to your coil and they come in a wide range of options. They can vary in shape, style and settings.
No matter what type of vaper you are or what you are looking for in your vape battery, when you buy one from Totally Wicked you are getting the highest quality. We take battery safety seriously, which is why you will be supplied with a battery safety guide every time you buy a vape battery from us.

The latest variable temperature technology, e-cig power units for sub-ohm vaping and removable battery mods are just a click away.
Now we have gone over the type of vape batteries available, let’s take a look at some common questions people often have about vape batteries.
How Long Does it Take to Charge a Vape Battery?
Depending on the type of vape battery or power unit effects how long it takes to charge. On average it will take between 4 and 8 hours to fully charge your vape battery, but there are factors that effect this such as the size of your battery, what charger you are using, and the battery features.
Built-in batteries are charged through an on-board USB port and allow your e-cig to be vaped while it is on charge
The light on the battery will flash to indicate a proper connection to a powered USB cable and depending on the e-cigarette, will pulse or glow to indicate charging or the battery symbol on the screen will pulse. Once charged, the colour of the button may change, or the battery symbol will flash showing full, once this happens the USB cable can be removed. Charging most of this style of vape batteries should take between 3-4 hours for a full charge. Some of these vape batteries will have quick charging, which means it may be even faster to charge.
Removable vape batteries can be taken out of your e-cigarette and charged in a separate dedicated battery charger
Although some e-cigarettes have a USB port that allows you to charge your batteries in the same way as a built-in device.
Once connected to your external charger, it will indicate when the battery is charging, either by a series of lights or from an inbuilt screen.
Once complete, the charger will indicate that your batteries can be removed and they can be taken out and used in your e-cig. Charging most batteries should take between 2-4 hours for a full charge. Again, this depends on the style of charger used and the size of the battery.
If you charge a removable battery inside the mod it will take longer than an external charger, it may take between 3-6 hours to fully charge.
When Should You Charge a Vape Battery?
The short answer is to charge your vape battery when it needs it. When you have a phone or a laptop you are advised to drain the battery completely before recharging, that is because that type of battery has something called ‘charge memory’ so you need to ‘train’ them to not run down as quickly.
Vape batteries do not have a charge memory, you do not need to fully deplete them before recharging. In fact, it can do more harm than good as you may end up over discharging them and cutting their life short.
Most e-cigs will have a form of battery indicator to tell you when your vape battery needs recharging. This might be a percentage displayed on a screen, or a light may change colour.
Some e-cigs will also start to give a physical sign, your vape might not be as strong, you may get less vapour production and reduced throat hit. These can be signs that you need to get your e-cig battery on charge.
Can You Overcharge a Vape Battery?
Yes, you can overcharge your vape battery and it is a no-no. While most modern e-cigs have inbuilt safety protections to prevent this from happening, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
The simplest way to avoid this is to not leave your vape batteries on charge unattended. You shouldn’t do this anyway, because if these safety systems fail and you aren’t there you cannot stop something happening.
Don’t leave your batteries on charge over night or throughout the day
Once you have popped your battery on charge stay close and keep an eye on it, as soon as it is fully charged remove it from the charging source. Even if you aren’t using it straight away.
The main reason you do not want to overcharge your battery isn’t a safety issue, although this is the most important. It’s because overcharging your vape batteries seriously depletes their overall lifespan. If you keep them on a charging schedule and don’t overcharge or discharge them, they will last much longer in the long run.
How Long Do Vape Batteries Last?
Throughout the day, the average vape battery will last for around 3-8 hours. This is of actual vaping time and can vary wildly depending on your style of vaping, size of the battery, and your coil.
But it’s whole life can be slightly more difficult to determine, as it depends on how often its charged, if it’s been overcharged or over discharged. On average you will get 300 charging cycles from a vape battery, this means you can charge it 300 times. But that doesn’t mean your e-cig battery will just stop working after you have hit that number, it simply means that after this your battery may not hold charge as long and may take longer to recharge.
If you take care of your vape batteries, keep them clean and charge them properly using a charger designed for e-cigs then they can last for years.
What Are Vape Box Batteries?
Vape boxes are exactly as the name suggests, an e-cig that has a box shape. Vapers tend to be drawn to them not only for their shape, but because they usually have a larger battery capacity, more settings to adjust, a screen so you can easily see your vaping settings and you can normally keep them stood up when they are charging.
We stock a variety of box mods here at Totally Wicked, including one of our best-selling e-cig kits of all time the arc 5, which you can find in our e-cig section, along with other box mods which are all the highest quality, with something to suit every vaper.
