What are the best vape battery chargers?¬† That is a good question and an important question! Have you ever thought your batteries were not charging fully and running down fast? It could be the charger. The battery charger is an important part of getting the most out of your vaping. The good news is that it is not expensive to buy the best battery chargers for 18650 batteries or 20700 batteries or whatever you use. You don’t have to spend a lot to get the best quality.

Now, what we don’t want to happen is for you to get stuck with a low quality charger. A bad, low quality vape battery charger can be inefficient or even dangerous. Have you heard about the e-cig battery explosions and battery fires that the media loves so much? Well it is possible that some of those incidents may be related to a faulty charger. You need a charger that accurately controls the rate of charge and the level of charge delivered to your battery.

  • Always make sure that you are using a battery charger that is designed for the specific battery you are charging. Don’t attempt to charge a battery using a charger that it is not designed for.

The best vape battery chargers are smart! They will monitor the charge rate and cease the charge at the proper time. We will cover the best chargers and do not worry, they are not expensive. In fact, the best chargers for e-cig batteries do not cost more than the crappy clone chargers. As a matter of fact, in some cases a quality, proper charger will cost less than a poorly made model.

  • Tip: Never let a vape battery fall below 30% of charge. Keep your batteries topped up to extend their longevity.

Vape Battery Safety

At Apollo, we take safety seriously. We are not writing this just to try and sell you one of our chargers. Well, not totally anyway! Obviously we would like to earn your business and there is a reason that we opted to sell these specific vape battery chargers. We could sell any types of ecig battery chargers that we wanted. Our team selected these specific chargers based on quality, value, and performance. Moreover, customer safety and battery safety is very important to us. So even if you do not want one of the best vape battery chargers on our list, please do not skimp on quality whichever charger you decide to buy.

Beginning vapers may not be aware of the importance of using the right charger with the right battery. Once again, it is very important to only use a battery charger that is designed to charge your battery. When it comes to vaping, the most common battery used is the 18650 cell. In addition, other types of batteries frequently used in vape mods include 26650, 20700, and 21700. More on that in a minute. But for now, the point is that most vape battery chargers are designed to accommodate all of these types. But, always double check to make sure!

Vape Batteries

There are many types of vape batteries. Some mods have internal batteries. But the most common type of vape mod battery is the 18650. Not all 18650s are the same. The mAh rating may vary slightly. mAh stands for milliamp hours and is a measure of how much energy a battery can store. Also, the amp rating varies. Amp is short for ampere which is a measure of discharge rate per second. If you have a powerful mod you want to operate at higher wattages, then you will need a higher amp rating on your battery.

Some other types of vape batteries that we briefly mentioned earlier are the 20700, 26650, and 21700 batteries. Each of these are a different physical size. The size of a vape battery is directly related to how much energy it can store. Therefore, you will notice that larger batteries have larger mAh ratings.

The best vape battery chargers usually will be capable of working with a number of types of batteries.

Should I Use My Mod To Charge My Batteries?

No. That was easy! And we will also tell you why. Okay, now it is true that most mods come with a USB cable that you can use to charger your batteries. But here’s the problem. 90% of the mods out there do a horrible job of charging batteries. They do not charge evenly and in some cases they do not have the requisite safety protections.

If you have a DNA box mod like the Apollo Solare, you can use that to charge your vape batteries. The reason why is that the DNA chip does have the capability of accurate battery charging. That said, even in the case of a DNA mod, we recommend using a separate charger because an internal mod housing will have to bear the increased temperature for an extended period of time during charging. And this could mean additional wear and tear.

One more thing. Even if you have a DNA mod you will still benefit from having a separate battery charger. In the event that your batteries run down, if you have a separate charger you can always ensure that you have a fully charged spare battery ready to go.

We have cautioned you about the serious safety issues of using a low quality charger. That is very important and even if you don’t buy any charger from us please, please keep safety in mind.
