E-cig Battery Maintenance & Tips

E-Cig Battery Maintanence and Tips

All E-Cigarettes are considered consumables, and therefore subject to wear and tear, however, maintenance can increase the life of your parts.


Charging the eGo style Battery & Cleaning

The eGo style batteries are pre charged when you receive them.

When the initial charge is used up, charge the battery, until the light turns green on your charger (this takes about 3 hours), or if your charger hasn't got an indication light, leave it on charge for about 3 hours.

Keep the battery connections dry as any liquid puddle or dried liquid in the battery will cause a lack of connection to the atomiser/ clearomiser/ cartomiser or charger.

This will cause you to automatically draw harder, to get it to work and is harsh on the atomiser/ clearomiser/ cartomiser, or worst case, couse a short in the battery.
This also can cause for too much liquid to be dumped into the atomiser, causing the atomiser to get hot, leak or not produce any vapour.
Use an ear bud to clean out the connection
, as this the easiest way
, especially around the threads.
Once every two weeks, take an ear bud dipped in alcohol, and thoroughly wipe out the battery connection to remove any dried liquid.
If you have been noticing your batteries are not holding their charge like they used to, they probably need cleaned.
Also don't forget to clean  the charger connection with a dry cloth or ear bud.

 
My eGo battery does not work when I attach my Vivi Nova or CE4 to it, but works when nothing is attached to it, Is it actually broken?

Good question, but not necessarily.

The battery not working, or flashing, is the circuits’ way to tell you there is something wrong
It could be something as simple, as the centre pin having been pushed down, causing the battery not to function properly

This is a known issue with eGo style batteries, often caused by over tightening the atomiser/ clearomiser/ cartomiser on to the battery, but you can easily solve this problem by:
  •  Take your clearomiser/ atomiser/ cartomiser of
  •  Get a cocktail stick and blunt the tip.
  • Gently wiggle the cocktail stick at the side of the centre pin, go around the centre pin and  lift it up gently.
  • Screw your clearomiser/ atomiser/ cartomiser back on and start vaping

This is a quick & easy fix for the most common issues with an eGo style battery.


You can Watch the video


The other issue being you dropped it and the wires have snapped you can tell the difference as with a snapped wire the activation led will flash.
We will create a fix video for this at some point in the future but this video fix is for NON Firing atomisers/ cartomisers/ clearomisers on eGo Style batteries.


                                            eGo RS
                        ego_rs_parts.jpg

The New eGo-RS  main feature is: that it has a removable 14500 battery, which you can replace whenever you want, by simply unscrewing the end cap!
Something you can’t do with standard eGo style batteries.


The eGo-RS all-round appearance:
in general looks the same, as the ego style batteries.
The battery thread is exactly the same as normal ego style batteries, and fits various atomisers, cartomisers and clearomisers, E.G:  ego-T atomiser/Tank system, CE4/CE5 & any Standard 510 atomisers.



It can be charged in two ways:
Using a regular ego style USB (fast) charger, or you can remove the 14500battery (900mAh) and use a battery charger capable of charging li-lion3.7vBatteries (using a battery charger preferred)

                                     eGo Passthrough
                        batteries_passthroughs.jpg

The eGo passthrough: is amanually operated battery that has an end cap, that can be removed to allow theuser to plug the device in to a USB port, and therefore it can be used like apass-through. The battery can also be used like a standard eGo battery.


The eGopassthrough
: has a 5 click on/off button, which can be used to prevent unwanted activation when thedevice is not in use.

When in the on position, you just push the button which will light up blue.


Charging the eGo passthrough
: takes about 3 hours, and can be charged in either of 2 ways,


1:Through a USB connection

Simply unscrew the end cap and attach the USB cable, to use it as a pass through.

When you click 5 times to switch it off it stops unwanted activation, though, you could still use it whilst sitting in front of the computer, whilst it is charging.


2:Through a 510 connection, though not recommended

When used as a battery, you can click 5 times to switch it off to stop unwanted activation.


We recommend you only charge with a USB cable and not through the 510 connection!


                                               
                               eGo LED Variable Voltage

The 3 Voltage stages are as followed;

Red Ring - 3.2v
Purple Ring - 3.7v
Blue Ring - 4.2v


The battery thread is exactly the same as other ego style batteries, and fits various atomisers, cartomisers and clearomisers, E.G:  CE4/CE5. Vivi Nova's and any Standard 510 atomisers.

It can be charged, Using a regular ego style USB (fast) charger

Unlike other eGo style batteries, this eGo LED Variable Voltage hasn't got an on/off option


                   eGo Variable Voltage/Variable Wattage APV
                                           Vamo V2

                               vamo_v2.jpg

This eGo mod is both Variable Voltage, and Variable wattage, meaning you can adjust the vape to be consistent, regardless of the clearomiser/ atomiser/ cartomiser you use.

How does it work?

The Big Button under the LED
Press the Big button 5 times, to switch the eGo mod on, or off
Hold the Big button to vape


The 2 smaller Buttons underneath the LED

 
Switching between modes
is simple, hold down both smaller buttons, underneath the LED display at the same time for about 3 seconds, to switch between VV and VW, and then adjust the power, to suit your needs.


Voltage mode, adjust the voltage from 3.0v to 6.0v in 0.1v increments
Wattage mode, adjust the wattage from 3.0w to 15w in 0.5w increments


This eGo mod, can check and display the resistance of your atomiser, by holding down the small right button (+) for about 3 seconds, and the battery voltage, do the same by clicking the small left button (-) for about 3 seconds.

Using the eGo VV/VW in it's smallest size requires a 1x 18350 battery and in full size a 2x 18350's batteries, or a 18650 battery

The difference between the Vamo and the Vamo v2  is, The v2 remembers your settings when you change your batteries, and it has a stronger spring so it does not collapse under the weight of a 18650 battery.

TESLA, functions and features

1. Constant voltage and Constant wattage(dual mode output)    
 In constant voltage mode, the output voltage can be adjusted between 3.0V - 6.0V in increments of 0.1V.     
 In constant wattage mode, the output power can be adjusted between 3.0W and 15.W in 0.5W increments.
2. Single cell 3.7V battery input operational voltage is 3.2V - 5.0V
3. Button adjustments allows you to choose between 25 possible wattage settings, and 31 possible voltage settings.
4. Atomiser resistances check function, which can test and display the resistance of the atomiser in Ω.
5. OLED display, which can show the battery input and output voltage, atomiser resistance, output power, or short-circuit warnings.
6. Short circuit protection, and reverse battery installation protection. 
If the battery is installed backwards, the control panel will switch to protected mode, so that is doesn’t damage the     internal components of the Tesla.
7. Low voltage warning, will stop use of under-charged batteries and display the “Low V” warning.
8. Short circuit and unsafe amperage protections. the Tesla should detect external short circuits and disengage to   protect the user.   
The Tesla will also detect if the attached atomizer resistance is too low to safely draw current.   
In both cases the Tesla will disengage output automatically

 

User Operation

 

Upon the Tesla’s system start up, the Screen will boot up with the word Tesla, if the battery is low the display will boot with the words “Low V” .

During the boot sequence of this device, do not attempt to operate any functions, but allow the device to boot into standby please.

 

When the system boots into standby, use the fast click (5 click on/ off function) to turn the device on. 

The word Tesla will display on the screen. 

If the battery voltage is sufficient for operation, the system will turn on and display the message “System on.” 

Upon first turning the system on, the output will be in a  “locked” state, press both the - and + buttons at the same time to switch the unit into an unlocked state, and you will be able to adjust operations.

 

The large button is your activation button.

To toggle the device between on or off, you need to fast-click the activation button 5 times (button presses must be very fast, within two seconds.) 

When the unit is off, there will be no output from the Tesla, and the OLED will not display. 

When on, the Tesla will be ready to use.

 

The - (minus) button is the voltage and wattage reduction button. 

Pressing - , will adjust the current value of either voltage or wattage down, and the corresponding voltage, or wattage numbers will be displayed on the OLED screen. 

When the unit is adjusted below 3.0V, or 3.0W, it will cycle back to the highest setting (6.0V or 15W.)

 

The + (plus) button is the voltage and wattage increase button. 

Pressing + will adjust the current value of either voltage or wattage up, and the corresponding voltage or wattage numbers will be displayed on the OLED screen. 

When the unit is adjusted above6.0V, or 15W, it will cycle back to the lowest setting (3.0V, or 3.0W.)

 

To check the Battery voltage, hold the - button down for two full seconds while the OLED screen is on and unlocked. 

The Screen will then display the battery’s current operational voltage.

 

To check the atomizer resistance, hold the + button down for about two seconds while the OLED screen is on and unlocked. 

The screen will then display the connected atomizer’s resistance.

 

To toggle the device between locked and unlocked output states,press both the – and + at the same time.

 

To access the Tesla menu, hold the + button for about eight seconds. 

The menu interface will allow you to adjust 3 Tesla settings.

 

1:   When the interface displays “Power Voltage”, you can use this menu option to change between‘Constant wattage’   and ‘Constant Voltage’ mode for the device. 

Pressing the - button will switch between the two menu options. 

2:   When the OLED interface shows the word “Power” the device will be set into constant wattage mode, and regulate itself via calculated wattage output. 

When the interface shows the word “Voltage” the unit will be set in constant voltage mode, and will regulate itself via output voltage.

3:   When the Tesla interface displays the words “LCD Display”, you can use this menu setting to adjust the content displayed on the OLED screen during use. 

Pressing the - button will switch between menu options. 

4:   The menu setting “Voltage”, will display the output voltage or wattage of the Tesla on the screen while in use. 

5:   The menu setting “Resistance”, will display the Ω resistance of the atomizer during use. 

6:   The setting “Battery”, will display the current output voltage of the battery you are using on the OLED screen during use

7:   The final menu option“ON/OFF” will toggle the OLED display on the Tesla to either active or inactive during the use of the device. 

As with other menu options, you can use the –button, to toggle between settings 
In the menu mode, the + button is used for cycling menu categories, and the - button is used to confirm the setting.   

Using these two buttons, you will be able to navigate the Tesla menu. 

The menu navigation will exit after no buttons have been pressed for about three seconds.

8:   When the system powers down via the fast click (5 click) function, the OLED will display the word Tesla and upon successful shut down will display the words “system off”, which indicates a successful shut down.
9:   When an atomizer is attached with a resistance lower than 1.2 Ohms, the Tesla display will show“Low Resistance”, and cease function until an appropriately built atomiser is connected.
10:
When an output short circuit is detected the screen will display the words “Short”

11: When the battery voltage is below 3.2V,  the unit will display “Low V” on the screen, when you attempt to activate it.  The unit will resume normal function when appropriately charged batteries are installed.
