Six More Ways to Make Your E-Cigarette Battery Last Longer

When you’re vaping out of the house, you’re at the mercy of your battery life. If your battery runs out of charge, you’re left with nothing to vape and in need of nicotine, increasing the temptation to buy a pack of cigarettes or at very least encouraging you to take a spare device or two everywhere you go. But what can you do to maximize the battery life of your vape mod so it’s more likely to see you through a day of vaping? We’ve covered several tips previously, but there are plenty of other ways you can get the most out of your vape battery before needing to recharge. Here are six more things to consider.


1 – Choose Your Battery Carefully


This is a bit of an obvious point, but if you’re vaping out of the house often, the best thing you can do is choose a battery that has a high capacity (mAh rating). There are many vape pen batteries that offer impressive lifespans, but if you choose a mod, this will give you the best range of options. Choose a device – or a battery, for mods that require separately-purchased batteries – with at least 2,000 mAh, or ideally 3,000 mAh and upwards, for the best battery life. The higher the mAh rating, the better your battery. If you have a device that you purchase batteries separately for, you can easily upgrade to higher-capacity batteries.


2 – Reduce Your Power Setting


The capacity of the battery tells you how many milliamps (mA) it can provide for a solid hour of use, with milliamps being a measure of current. Higher wattages draw more current and drain your battery more quickly. This might not be what you’re hoping to hear if you like big clouds, but turning your wattage down is one of the best things you can do to maximize the battery life from your vape mod. Turning from 50 W to 25 W will make a big difference to your battery lifespan and still give you more than enough vapor for a satisfying puff.


3 – Try Temperature Control Vaping


When you vape in VW mode, the battery puts out the full wattage you request throughout your whole puff. But temperature control (TC) mode works a little differently. When your coil reaches a pre-designated temperature, the wattage is automatically reduced, so the temperature is maintained but not exceeded. This does favors for your device’s battery life, along with giving you a consistent flavor from your e-juice and helping you avoid dry hits. It does mean you’ll have to get a compatible coil – titanium, nickel and stainless steel options work – but it’s worth considering if you want to maximize your battery life.


4 – Use Higher-Strength E-Juice


Most vapers these days use high wattages and lower strength e-liquids – often 3 or 6 mg/ml – so they get a satisfying, but not excessive, amount of nicotine. However, this setup is very inefficient if battery life is a major concern. You’ll need to vape more often and at a higher power setting to get enough nicotine to ease your cravings. If you’re already following the advice from earlier and reducing your power setting, pairing this with a higher-strength e-juice makes sure you still get a satisfying vape. You don’t have to increase much to see a benefit – even up to 12 mg/ml will make a big difference and mean your battery has to do less work every time you need some nicotine.


5 – Use Higher-Resistance Coils


Although this isn’t always true, higher resistance coils generally work better at lower wattages than lower-resistance ones. Higher-resistance coils are common in simpler, mouth-to-lung style vape tanks and you can generally get a good vape with them at less than 20 W. Compare this to sub ohm tanks, which really start to come into their own at about 30 or 40 W and you’ll see there is huge potential for getting more vaping time out of a single charge if you use them. You might not be too keen to buy a new tank for the purposes of extending your vape mod’s battery life, but it’s a fairly simple step to take and it can make a big difference. You’ll need to pair this with a higher-strength e-liquid to make sure you still get a satisfying vape, but when you do you’ll notice the difference in your battery life.


6 – Turn Your Device Off When You’re Not Using It And/Or Use Stealth Mode


Most mods these days have quite complex display screens that show all the key bits of information about your vaping setup. Although these don’t make a huge difference to your battery life, they’re still a drain on your limited power supplies when you don’t need them to vape. Turning your mod off when you’re not using it can help this, but the best solution is to use “stealth mode,” if your device has it. Stealth modes turn off the screen all the time, so none of your battery is wasted in lighting up a fancy display when you don’t need it. It might not look as cool when you’re vaping, but it will minimize wasted energy.


Battery Life Will Always Be An Issue, But You Can Improve It


The truth is, battery life issues will always plague vapers. In our quest for better performance we ask for more and more power, but batteries can only do so much. If your battery’s lifespan is a major issue for you, all you have to do is make a few changes to the way you vape – even if it means putting out less impressive clouds for a while. The key question is: would you rather blow clouds but run out of battery part-way through the day, or put out a sensible amount of vapor but keep going for much longer? There is no right or wrong answer, but if you want to choose the latter, the tips in this post will get you what you’re looking for.

What is Naturally Extracted Tobacco E-Liquid?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Best E-Liquid on the Market

Anyone looking for the best e-liquid on the market need look no further than Black Note. Black Note tobacco vaping liquid ranks as the best e-juice across the board in every category, starting with the taste.

Black Note’s main claim to fame is producing a tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. That because we use real tobacco extract, not chemicals, to create the best e-juice tobacco flavor. Using extract from real tobacco leaves retains tobacco’s nuances and flavor notes, giving you the most authentic and multi-faceted tobacco experience.

In addition to being the best e-juice for tobacco taste, Black Note also has the best e-liquid manufacturing process. We spent years researching and testing various production methods, and finally landed on one that we believe is absolutely perfect.

It starts with growing carefully selected tobacco seeds, followed by an equally precise of steps that include an extensive natural extraction process. Even our bottling and packaging is done with the utmost care, using recycled and recyclable packaging materials to ensure our products are as earth-friendly as they are vapor-friendly.

One more category where Black Note ranks as the best e-liquid is with the value.

If you’re not happy for any reason, or don’t agree we’re the best e-juice on the market, send it back on us and we’ll refund your money.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
