MOD BATTERY SAFTEY TIPS

Information on Batteries
Batteries eventually wear out, and need to be replaced every 3-6 months depending on use and battery quality. If your batteries are no longer hold a charge for as long as they are used to, it may be time to recycle them and pick up a new set.
What is marrying batteries? This is the act of having sets of batteries that stay together. They are the same age, discharge together and charge together. Properly married batteries will improve not only the way your mod preforms but is a great way to improve safety.
Remember not to throw batteries in the trash! They need to be disposed of properly. @ E-Cig source we will take any batteries or devices that need to be disposed of as a complimentary service.
Or you can contact your local waste management on how to recycle batteries.
