I haven’t smoked since August (7 months ago), but I wrote this post when I first started using an electronic cigarette and I forgot to publish it. I thought it would be good information for anyone who is using a “cig-a-like” e-cig, so I decided I’d put the post up today.
I fully charged my electronic cigarette 5 days ago and haven’t used it until today. Since I was drinking with some friends, I knew I would need my e-cig to keep me from smoking a regular cigarette. Sadly that didn’t happen, because the battery only lasted for about three smoke sessions. I was also sharing with friends so it quickly drained what was left of the battery.
I’ve smoked my electric cigarette several times on a full charge and I haven’t had any problems at all so far. I’ve been able to smoke to my heart’s content. But it seems that leaving the cartridge attached to the battery for a week, even on a full charge and without smoking it at all, drains the battery.
So just a little tip for you – if you want to conserve the battery, detach it from the cartridge after every smoke. This is especially important if you only have one battery and the electronic cigarette is the only barrier stopping you from smoking a real cigarette.
