CCELL® Battery Life and Maintenance

CCELL Battery Life

Buying a high-quality vaping device like a CCELL® 510-thread battery is an investment. You want your device to last as long as it possibly can, and you want it to provide the best possible performance every step of the way. In order to get the long-term performance that you want, you need to treat your battery well and maintain it in the correct way. In this guide, we’re going to explain everything you need to know.

How Long Does a CCELL® Vape Battery Last?

A lithium-ion battery generally lasts through at least 300 charge cycles and may last up to 500 cycles before you begin to notice severely decreased battery life. With that in mind, you can generally expect a CCELL® battery to last at least a year before the capacity noticeably declines. How long the battery lasts will depend on whether you maintain it properly and how often you charge it. A higher-capacity battery will generally last longer than one with a lower capacity because you won’t need to charge it as often.

A CCELL® vape battery such as the CCELL® Palm usually has a capacity around 550 mAh, which should be sufficient to last through several lengthy vaping sessions between battery charges.

How to Maintain a CCELL® Battery

To ensure that your CCELL® battery will last as long as it can, you need to maintain it properly. Always heed the following instructions.

  • Charge the battery correctly. We provide more detailed instructions for this below.
  • Keep the device clean by removing residual oil from the device’s threading and keeping the charging port free of debris. You can remove oil from the threading using a cotton swab moistened with rubbing alcohol.
  • Keep the device away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Don’t store it in your car.

How to Charge a CCELL® Battery

Always charge a CCELL® battery by connecting it to your computer unless the instruction manual explicitly states that you can use a wall adapter. Charging the battery takes about 30-60 minutes, and the charge cycle is complete when the battery’s indicator light dims or changes color. Learn more about how to charge a 510-thread battery.

How to Use a CCELL® Battery Safely

To use a CCELL® battery safely, you need to protect it from extreme heat levels and unsafe power loads. To do that, always heed the following.

  • Avoid using or storing the device in extreme heat. As we mentioned above, you should never use a CCELL® battery in direct sunlight or store it in an unattended car. When a car is parked in the sun, its internal temperature can quickly rise to levels that are unsafe for a lithium-ion battery.
  • Don’t use a high-speed charger to charge a CCELL® battery. Chargers for devices like computers and mobile phones may cause a vape battery to overheat.
  • Only use your CCELL® battery with top-quality vape cartridges. If you use a third-party cartridge or tank, make sure that you know its resistance. The resistance of the cartridge’s coil should be higher than the minimum resistance supported by your device.

CCELL® Battery Not Charging: What to Do

When you connect a CCELL® battery to your computer, the device’s LED should always illuminate unless the battery is already fully charged. If the light doesn’t turn on, follow these steps to fix it.

  • Use a different USB cable to charge your battery. The act of connecting and disconnecting a USB cable constantly eventually causes the internal wires to develop weak points. Using a different cable will almost always fix a CCELL® battery that isn’t charging.
  • Connect the CCELL® battery to your computer rather than a wall charger. There’s a potential risk of overheating when you use a wall charger because the charger may not provide the correct voltage or amperage for your device.
  • Make sure that the battery’s threading or charging port is completely clean. If your CCELL® battery connects to the charger through the 510 threading, you can remove oil from the threading using a cotton swab moistened with rubbing alcohol. If the battery charges through a USB port, you can use a thin non-metal tool to remove debris from the port.
