    Battery Health tips?

    Hey gurus.
    What is the best way to keep your batteries in good health?
    Alway keep fully charged?
    Drain and charge?
    Should I charge a half full battery or run it to empty?

    Talking about 18000 (18650, 18500, 18350) series AW IMR.

    Any tips welcome.

    Charging depends on your mod, if it's mechanical charge it as soon as it stops making great vapour, if it's VV it doesn't matter. Always keep all your contacts in great shape and never use a coil with hotspots or shorts, don't vape below 0.5ohm.
    the biggest one is having a good charger imo.

    This place is a good resource for us Vapers. More than enough Lithium battery information.

    How to Store Batteries – Battery University

    Lithium-ion must be stored in a charged state, ideally 40 percent. This assures that the battery will not drop below 2.50V/cell with self-discharge and fall asleep.
    Because I trust no-one Who tells me FACTS with no proof

    Sorry looked into it more and it's lithium cobalt, people are so misleading say these are safer non lithium batteries. :l
    Apparently the lower mh ones are manganese.
