Taking care of the batteries

- Dedicated Battery Charger
Just like your other gadgets, use a dedicated battery charger for your POD charging, as it makes the charging fast and efficient

Try your best to always keep your batteries on normal/room temperature because harsh temperature is extremely hazardous for the chemicals inside batteries. Keep your batteries from any fireplace and if you notice any kind of damage, stop using that.
- Don’t over charge
For your battery safety keep an eye on your device while charging. While charging put your device somewhere that’s fireproof. When the battery is fully charged remove it from charging as soon as possible. Overnight charging is not recommended. Don’t wait for the battery to discharge completely, always charge before its dead. There is an option to extend your battery life by staying above 2.5v to avoid short circuit or exploding. Use batteries that have an amp limit of 20A or higher. It can be dangerous if you use other than these
- Insert correctly
Always keep in mind and make sure that your batteries are properly inserted the correct way, so that it can protect them from venting. Even if your mod features reverse polarity protection, pay attention that the batteries don't go in backwards.

Coils for rebuildable:
This requires the user to install the wick
These both coils have different structure and different jobs and very particular way of cleaning them. Once you know what type of coil is suitable for you, you follow the specific care routine for that coil
But some of the general tips to take care of your coil are as following:
- Soak your coal in ethanol or vinegar, for some hours.
- Rinse it by putting under the tap
- Always blow water or air to the holes of your coil to get rid of remaining dirt and water
- Make sure all water is evaporated before using it again
- You’ll get an idea if your coil is slightly burnt because of the burnt taste, and you should change it asap because burnt coils produce hazardous chemicals
- You should never dry burn your coils because wicks are mostly made of cotton, you must ensure that there is always some vape juice left in the wick.
