    Quick battery question

    I've got a couple of ego c upgrade batteries and a couple of little joyetech 510 ones. I'm just wondering if they need completely running down? I read somewhere about batteries not lasting as long if you don't run them flat now and then or something. Anyone know anything about this?

    Hi Kay

    Due to the different battery chemistry, of our ecig batterys, its not necessary to run your battery down to minimize the "memory" effect of older type battery's. Link below might be worth the read to give you a better idea of why.

    Yeah Rob's on the money, better off keeping them topped and in rotation.
    The old Nicad's were the ones that needed to be flattened.

    leaving them fully charged to some extent and fully discharged to a large extent .. reduces the lifespan, hence they are supplied at about 70% charged.
    apart from that .. there are no hard and fast rules.
