Risks of incorrectly storing your device
If you incorrectly store your e-cigarette, a multitude of issues could end up arising. Here are just a few issues that could pop up:
- Battery could be damaged: If you’ve left your electronic cigarette in direct sunlight – or close to a heat source – you can potentially damage your battery.
- Device could leak: Although you might think that you’ve drained every last drop of liquid from your device, you have potentially missed some. This means that you shouldn’t store the device on its side, or it may leak.
- Battery could overcharge: If you have left your device charging until you want to use it again, the battery is likely to end up overcharging. In the future, this could mean that your battery no longer lasts as long.
