Frequently Asked Vaping Questions

E-Cigarette – Lithium Battery

Q. How long do I charge my e cig 1st time

A. for the 1st charge your EGO battery will require a minimum of 7 hours to charge, ignore all indicator lights on your first charge, failure to do this will result in your battery holding charge for only a couple of hours. Will also reduce its life span of 6-12 months

Q. how long and when I know my battery is fully charged

A. after the initial charge your battery will require 2-3 hours for a full charge, when attached to the charger you will see the green light on the USB part change to red, this indicates its charging, once fully charged the light will turn green indicating full charge.

Q. my battery is charged and liquid in cartomiser but no vapour

A. press the power button on battery 5 times in quick succession, same process to power off.

Q. how do I know if my battery is faulty, followed set up instructions and still no power

A. when attaching to charger the green light on the USB changes to red, and the power button flashes to indicate charging, if the green light on charger remains green then you may have a faulty battery or charger, please contact customer services

Q. how long should my battery last me

A. Approx 2 days if you’re a 15 per day smoker, this does vary on usage, so minimum would be 1 day, max 2 days as a 15 per day smoker

Q. does my battery require maintenance

A. the battery requires minimal maintenance, when detaching from the cartomiser always wipe the connector point of any excess liquid, do not wet or wash the battery

Q. can the battery be over charged, will it explode if overcharged.

A. Infinite Vapour supplies high quality units, our batteries are fitted with a auto cut off switch to prevent overcharge and any explosions, however we DO NOT recommend overcharging as this would invalide any warranty, if the battery has been damaged, dropped or abused then you will always run the risk of damaging your battery, explosion may be caused by damage or neglect, (or by purchasing a cheap quality product) once again this would only be possible if the battery has been dropped, damaged or misused. ALWAYS follow battery saftey guidelines.


DO NOT over tighten when attaching cartomiser to battery, stop when the thread stops.

Do not overlook the 1st 7 hour charge

Do not attempt to fix a broken battery, fault or non fault, leave to the experts.

Do not expose to water or liquids as with any electronic product

Keep away from children (it’s not a toy)

Lithium Iron products require special care – avoid contact with mobile phones, keys, metal objects, loose change etc, this will help prolong your lithium battery.

Always wipe any excess e liquid from contact points when removed from cartomiser.


Cartomisers & Atomisers

Q. What is a Cartomiser/Clearomiser

A. A cartomiser/clearomiser is a chamber which holds the e liquid, available in various shapes, colours and sizes to match your battery

Q. How long does a cartomiser last, do I need to change it

A. Cartomisers these days should not require replacing unless damaged, or manufactured with an imperfection. Cartomisers generally only require refilling, you only need to change the atomiser/core inside the cartomiser.

Q. Does the size of cartomiser make a difference

A. Yes, the bigger the cartomiser the more e liquid it will store, however please note that when you increase the size of your cartomiser too much, you would require a higher output battery to power the cartomiser.

Q. What is an Atomiser/Core

A. An Atomiser/core is a small part either at the top or bottom of your cartomiser, this is the part responsible for heating your e liquid when in the cartomiser, available in various ohms commonly ranging from 1.5-2.5ohms, the most common and standard power supplied in most cartomisers is 1.8ohm. Atomisers can be changed when expired/burned out

Q. How long should my atomiser/core last

A. Manufacturers specify the atomiser/core requires changing every 2-4 weeks depending on how much you vape, as a 20 per day smoker your atomiser/core last a minimum of 2 weeks, maximum 4 weeks, if you’re a light smoker it may last you longer.

Q. What are the signs to replace my atomiser/core

A. It may stop working altogether (with a charged battery powered on, no sound or vapour coming through), or when your battery has charge you feel there isn’t enough vapour coming through, are usually the signs, however on some bottom loading atomisers/cores you may get liquid seeping through onto your battery, even though you can get slight vapour and a heating sounds is present from the cartomiser.


DO NOT over tight your cartomiser as it will be difficult to open for refilling, this can also cause damage to the cartomiser or battery if excessive force is required to open.

Do not place in your pocket where it may be prone to any force or pressure to bend

Do not over fill as this will only cause leakage

Do not pour e liquid directly into the atomiser/core

Do not open the cartomiser holding the plastic/glass parts, always hold by the silver rings either side of cartomiser opening point

Do not pour liquid down the air tube on a bottom loading cartomiser (this is the tube in the centre of your cartomiser) always pour liquid down the side of the container.

Always clean and wipe the cartomiser with a cotton bud or clean tissue every few days at least, including down the air tube from the mouthpiece side, to remove any excess e liquid.



Lithium-Ion batteries in electronic cigarettes are similar to the batteries used across the world in everyday devices like mobile phones and are considered safe, but there can be personal safety risks if used improperly. All Infinite Vapour batteries have gone through testing by our manufacturer and most models have a built-in protection circuit, but it is vital to keep the following points in mind to ensure that you are using your batteries safely.

Use the On/Off feature when your electronic cigarette is not in use

Only use the charger supplied with your product. Different batteries use different chargers

Never leave charging batteries unattended unless you are using a saftey charging bag.

Only charge batteries for specified time or until fully charged, as this may affect the lifespan and saftey of your battery, overcharging will invalidate your product warranty. 

Never submerge batteries in water or expose to extremely low or high temperatures.

Safely dispose of batteries once they have reached their end of life (WEE Derivative).

Always carry loose batteries in non-conductive containers, plastic or cardboard are fine, and never with metal/metallic objects such as loose change or keys.

Stay safe and use common sense whilst using electronic cigarette batteries and you will not have any problems. OVERCHARGING AND UNATTENDED batteries will not be covered under warranty, Infinite Vapour accepts no responsibility should any faults, defects or problems arise.

If you need any additional safety information or general advice on the products you have bought from us please feel free to get in touch.

If a mains power socket is not supplied only use a compatible power socket for your specific battery model.
