This post will have some technical vape jargon which might sound a bit confusing. We thought it might be good to include meanings for these vape terms before you start reading.
Maximum discharge current – this is the absolute maximum discharge current that the battery can produce to power your device. Operating at a high maximum discharge current can drain your battery much faster.
Nominal voltage – nominal voltage is a measurement that lets you know to what supply circuit you can charge a battery without damaging it.
Maximum voltage – the maximum voltage can vary from battery to battery and the higher the voltage your batter has, the more powerful charger you can use.
mAh – mAh is short for milli-Amp-hour ,it’s a capacity measurement. Essentially it tells you how much power you can store in your battery and how long your battery will last before it’s depleted.
Pulse discharge – a periodic current that improves charging efficiency and increases the life of a battery.
