VIP Electronic Cigarette batteries are lithium-ion and rechargeable. Batteries are already charged when supplied and the e-cigarette is ready to use straight from the packet. A battery charge will provide up to 150 puffs between charges, with a chare lasting from two to forty-eight hours depending on how heavy you smoke.
Re-charging is carried out by the USB charger. The USB charger plugs into your PC or laptop, but can also be used with a UK 3 Pin adaptor which enables charging by a standard wall mains point, or with the car charger adaptor to allow recharging using a cigarette lighter plug point a vehicle. The complete recharge cycle is two hours. However, one of the many benefits of the lithium-ion battery is that you do not need to fully recharge the battery before resuming use. You can remove the battery from the charger after a part re-charge and continue using the e-cigarette, but a full charge will offer peak performance. Lithium-ion batteries benefit from constant top ups, and providing once depleted they are re-charged promptly should last for 150 or more recharge cycles.
E-cigarette batteries should be stored in a cool place, away from direct heat, sunlight and moisture such as bathrooms or kitchens.
The Executive Electronic Cigarette Kit is supplied with two lithium-ion batteries and is a popular choice with customers. The additional battery allows one to be used while charging the other and ensures even use and charging cycles. Spare batteries can also be purchased in the Accessories area of the VIP shop.
