    What is mAh?

    Hi, I just ordered a 1100 mAh e-cig.
    I know it stands for milliamp but in the vape world is 1100 considered good?
    Should I be looking for lower mAh?

    Thanks

    Milliamps Hour (mAh) is important because it's the easiest way to distinguish the strength or capacity of a battery. The higher the mAh, the longer the battery will last.
    The 1100mAh will last longer than an 800mAh, but will be larger in size. It's a matter of compromise. Bigger and lasts longer. Smaller but shorter life time.

    Someone with better technical expertise will probably explain it better but effectively it battery capacity. The higher the number the higher the capacity and the longer it will last.

    the higher the mah the longer the battery life
    The only downside is the higher you go the longer the device gets, so if you find it a bit to big for all occasions then get a 900 or a 650 for those times when long battery life is not so important but you want something a bit more compact.

    Enjoy the compact stage while you can, chances are you'll be walking around with a 10 inch dildo lookalike within a couple of months

    1100mAh
    you can drain 1100mA for 1 hour and battery would be flat.

    A mili amp is one thousandth of an amp. 500ma is half an amp. 1000ma is one amp.

    Theoretically put a one amp load on the battery it will keep producing for one hour.

    Half an amp for two hours.

    Now if you load the battery with two amps, it will produce for half an hour.

    Yep. Or for example 110mA for 10 hours, 220mA for 5 hours. Divide the rating by your load current and you get the run time, or visa versa.

    Vaping does not resemble poisonous tobacco smoking, it is a safe replacement.

    Replace, not resemble.

    Safe, not toxic.
