Are you getting ready to buy your first vaping device with a removable battery? If you are, you’ll need to complete your purchase by buying a vape battery. Buying your first e-cigarette battery isn’t a trivial decision because today’s vape mods demand enormous amounts of power. A lithium-ion battery meets those demands by storing an incredible amount of energy in a tiny package, and that means there are certain safety and performance considerations that you’ll need to make when buying vape batteries.
We’re here to help. We offer a wide range of vape batteries here at Simply ELiquid – and choosing the right one for your needs is important. In this article, we’ll walk you through the process.
Why Is Choosing the Right Vape Battery Important?
Choosing the best vape battery for your needs is important because of the high amperage requirements of today’s vape kits. To understand how high the power requirements of a box mod really are, think about your mobile phone. A smartphone has a battery with about the same capacity as a removable battery for a vape mod. Your smartphone can play videos or display websites all day without breaking a sweat, though, while you’ll need to recharge a vape mod after just a few hours of vaping. Vaping, in other words, draws a great deal more power than anything you can do with your phone.
While you only need to charge your smartphone every day or two, you may find that you spend all day recharging batteries for your vaping devices if you’re a heavy vaper. When you’re buying external batteries for something as powerful as a vape mod, it’s extremely important to choose a battery capable of operating in high-drain scenarios without overheating. You can’t install just any battery in a vaping device and expect it to be safe for

Here at Simply ELiquid, we believe that buying a refillable vape starter kit is one of the best decisions that you can make as a beginning vaper. Between the experience of using a vaping device with pre-filled pods or cartridges and using one that you can refill yourself, there’s simply no comparison because having the ability to try any e-liquid on the market rather than being restricted to the few e-cigarette liquid refill flavours available for a pre-filled device makes vaping infinitely more enjoyable.
Having a refillable vape kit does, however, come with one additional challenge: You need to learn how to refill your e-cig. Learning how to refill a vape tank with e-liquid isn’t going to add significantly to the challenge of using your vaping device, but there is a certain art to doing it properly if you want to have the best experience possible. If you’ve ever experienced a burnt flavour immediately after filling your vape tank, for instance – or if you’ve ever noticed a gurgling sound when vaping – there’s a good chance that you didn’t fill the tank properly. Let’s make sure those things don’t happen. Here’s how to refill your vape tank the right way.
Prime the Coil When Filling Your Tank for the First Time
Regardless of the type of vape tank that you own, filling the tank for the first time should always begin with priming the coil. A vape coil usually has a wick made from cotton, and you want to make sure that the wick is totally wet before you start vaping. Otherwise, you could end up burning the wick. A coil with a burnt wick will always produce an awful flavour, and if you’ve ever experienced a burnt fla

During your time as a vaper, there are three maintenance tasks that you’ll need to perform regularly to keep your device functioning properly and to have the best possible vape experience. You’ll need to keep your device charged, you’ll need to keep your tank full and you’ll need to replace your coil periodically. With the first two tasks on that list, the proper timing will be obvious. You’ll always know when your battery is dead, and you’ll always know when your tank is empty.
Knowing when to change a vape coil, however, requires a little more finesse. At the simplest level, the answer seems obvious; it’s time to change your coil when you’re no longer happy with the flavour quality. As with everything else in vaping, though, an even better experience awaits you if you’re willing to look a bit more deeply. Here’s how to get the most from the vape coils that you buy from Simply ELiquid.
How Do You Tell if a Vape Coil Is Bad?
In short, you can tell that your vape coil is bad because your vape juice doesn’t taste good anymore. Some of the signs that your coil requires replacement include:
- A burnt taste that comes on either suddenly or gradually as you vape
- An unpleasant taste in your mouth resembling the flavour of overcooked sugar
- Frequent gurgling sounds when vaping; the gurgling quickly returns after you remove the excess e-liquid with a paper towel
- A visible layer of black or brown residue on the coil’s heating wire
If you’re no longer happy with your vaping experience from a flavour standpoint and see any of the signs that show your coil may be bad, there’s no need to worry that something is wrong with your vape device. It’s just time to change your coil.

Is vaping a safe alternative to smoking? If you’re a smoker, you’re well aware of the massive health risk you’re taking. You know that smoking ultimately leads to lung cancer and heart disease. You know that smoking is a scourge to public health and that it is the world’s leading preventable cause of death. Tobacco products don’t just cause health issues; being a smoker can also put a serious damper on your social life. You’ve heard about vaping, and you want to know if it’s really less harmful than smoking.
In this article, we’ll attempt to provide a balanced perspective on cigarettes and vaping and explain what the current research says about whether e-cigs are safe. We’ll also dig a bit deeper and describe the known benefits and risks of vaping. Finally, we’ll speak about some special circumstances such as vaping without nicotine and vaping if you aren’t already a smoker. Let’s begin!
Can Vaping Help You Quit Smoking?
We’ll start with the most basic question. Does vaping work as a smoking cessation method that can help you quit conventional cigarettes? The answer to that question is “yes.” People quit smoking every day by switching to vaping. The NHS recommends vaping as a legitimate smoking cessation method and says that it can “help you quit smoking for good.” It’s even possible that prescription e-cigarettes will be available through the NHS in the near future.
It’s likely that you have friends or family members who have already quit smoking cigarettes by switching to vaping. At this point, though, the evidence to support the effectiveness of vaping for smoking cessation isn’t just anec

Menthol Ban Sees Vaping Increase in Popularity
The ban of the sale of menthol cigarettes in May 2020 came as something of a shock for many people. Most smokers did not think it would happen, but it is now illegal to sell or smoke menthol cigarettes or rolling tobacco containing menthol in the UK. The thinking behind the ban was to try and discourage younger smokers from taking up the habit, as the menthol taste hides the harshness of nicotine. However, the good news is that in the vaping industry menthol is still allowed as a flavouring in any of our e-liquids.
A Tool to Quit
While it may have stung a little to find that your favourite menthol cigarettes are no longer allowed you could look at this as an opportunity to quit smoking. Many different studies have proved that vaping is a safer alternative and can be used as a crutch to give up the smokes. the best tobacco industry has long been something governments across the world have pushed for and this is another step towards their demise.
With vaping the nicotine content can be easily varied so you can start with something akin to smoking and gradually reduce the amount of nicotine until you are no longer taking in this chemical. Even with vaping, nicotine is not good for the lungs so developing a cloud habit with many different amazing tasting e-liquids that do not contain this harsh drug is the way to go. Of course, it's still not great for underage people to vape and it is something we discourage, and the industry takes seriously. But for people over the age of 18 who were reluctant to say goodbye to menthol cigarettes, vaping could be the alternative you've been looking for.
