Charger & cables
Just as there are plenty of brands and models of e-cigarettes available, you can also choose from a wide range of chargers and cables. Does it matter which you buy, or can you immediately choose the cheapest type? There are some 'standard' connections such as the 510, 18650, 21700 and the eGo. They all have a different connection. In addition, many models will also have a micro USB connection. That seems very easy, but it is advisable to use product-specific chargers and cables if possible. Because the micro-USB connector is usually fragile and can break quickly. Therefore, use a battery charger and limit the charging with the USB cable to a minimum.
What types of chargers and cables can be purchased?
Unfortunately, 'standard' does not always mean 'standard', in the case of electric cigarettes, different standards can be distinguished. These are:
510: If it concerns an e-cigarette with a 510 connection, then these chargers and cables will be provided with a 510 connection and screw thread.
18650 and 21700: With an extended mod or boxmod, there will usually be one or two batteries of the 18650 or 21700 type. You can charge it in an external charger, as you may know from other rechargeable batteries. Charging in the device is then not possible.
eGO: This connection often occurs on MTL dampers, which are the e-cigarettes that ex-smokers often use because the experience is very similar to normal smoking. This charger is about the thread of the eGO connection.
Micro-USB: If there is a Micro-USB connection on the device, you can use it to charge the device directly. Keep in mind that these connectors are not always solidly built. When the battery is removable, separate charging is preferred.
Note with telephone chargers with micro USB connection. These chargers and cables do not usually supply the same voltage as real e-cigarette charging equipment. Contact the supplier if you have any questions.
