Respect your mod batteries
Mod batteries and electrical devices need to be treated with the respect they deserve. Lithium-ion batteries require a protection circuit to function properly. If this protection shorts out then it could end up in painful injuries for users or deadly house fires.
Follow these simple rules and you’ll be fine.
- Don’t expose Lithium-ion (LI) batteries to extreme heat. Don’t leave them in a hot car.
- Make sure your mod is constructed by a reputable company or someone who has an intimate knowledge of circuitry and Ohm’s law.
- A device with removable batteries is generally safer than built in batteries. After all you can see if there’s any damage when you remove them to charge.
- Once your batteries are charged remove them from the power source. Don’t put them onto to charge overnight it could lead to dangerous overcharging.
- When you aren’t using batteries make sure they are stored in a cool place in proper storage container or box and not just rolling around in a draw where they can come into contact with other items, in your pocket or handbag, that might spark off the batteries and cause them to explode.
- 4 out of 5 explosions can be tracked back to charging batteries, and the battery was almost always a different model than what originally came with the device.
- Make sure you purchase batteries and chargers from a reputable manufacturers.
House fires have started as a result of people charging Mod batteries with a charger that was not designed for that specific battery. Don’t just buy what is cheap on ebay, your family’s lives may depend on it. Spend the extra few dollars, think of it as insurance if you need to.
