Battery Safety

Some devices use external batteries, usually 18650s, 20700s and 21700s. Although these are completely safe when used correctly, if used or transpccccorted incorrectly they can be extremely dangerous.

Some devices have built in batteries which cannot be removed, but battery safety is still paramount.

For battery safety we recommend:
• Switch off your device when not in use.
• When carrying/storing spare batteries you should always use a plastic battery case.
• If batteries come into contact with other metals in your pockets such as keys and coins it can complete the circuit which will result In the battery overheating and exploding. A battery box will prevent the batteries coming in contact with such items. At Vaporony, we are proud to say we will supply a battery box with any batteries you purchase from us. If the wrap on your battery has become visibly damaged such as nicks or peeling exposing the cell itself, do not use!
Battery wraps can be an inexpensive and easy way to replace outer plastic/pvc casing ensuring battery safety.

• Do not use your battery/device if it is damaged,  swollen or feels hot
• Although some devices have internal charging, we always recommend you use an external charger (link to chargers). These usually have a built in cut off to minimise risk.
• Only use recommended and tested chargers
• Only charge your battery for the required time.
• Do not over charge and do not leave unattended. We recommend that you do not charge overnight.
• Don’t expose your batteries to extreme heat or cold temperatures.
• Avoid contact with water. If you need to clean your device use alcohol wipes.
If you feel your batteries may be compromised, do not use!

Dispose of batteries responsibly. At Vaporony, we have battery bins in our stores and can help you dispose of your unwanted batteries. If it's not possible for you to visit our store, battery bins are usually available at council recycling centres.

What is a shortfill?

A shortfill is a bottle of e-juice that isn't quite full, leaving enough space to add nicotine. The reason these exist is because of the regulations that were introduced in May 2017 called the Tobacco Products Directive also known as TPD. These regulations don't allow any bottle larger than 10ml to be sold with nicotine already mixed. Shortfills allow the sale of larger bottles of e-juice, nicotine comes in a 10ml bottle separately and can then be added by the user.

For example a 50ml shortfill is 50ml of e-juice in a 60ml bottle, add 10ml of 18mg nicotine to this and you have 60ml of e-liquid at 3mg.

What is a Nic Shot?

A Nic Shot is a 10ml bottle of concentrated nicotine to be added to Shortfill e-liquids. We have a variety of Nic Shots.
Standard Nic Shot - 18mg Nic Shot using the conventional freebase nicotine.

We also stock:

Nic salt booster - adds nicotine salt to your shortfill for a smoother e-liquid.

Cool Nic Shot - adds menthol to your shortfill aswell as nicotine.

Sweet Nic shot - adds sweetner to your shortfill aswell as nicotine.

How do I add nicotine to my shortfill?

Remove the cap on the shortfill bottle

Apply the required number of Nic Shots

Replace cap

Shake thoroughly to mix the Nicotine throughout the e-liquid.
At vaporony, we recommend that your bottles are kept out of direct sunlight as best as possible. If liquid is quite harsh, then give it a good shake and make sure you can see air bubbles throughout the entire bottle.

Shortfill Nic Shot Guide

Generally, manufacturers leave just enough space for enough Nic Shots to make 3mg strength in liquids.60ml Shortfills contain 50ml of 0mg e-liquid with enough space for ONE 10ml Nic Shot. When the 18mg Nic Shot is added to the e-liquid this is diluted to 3mg.120ml Shortfills contain 100ml of 0mg e-liquid with enough space for TWO 10ml Nic Shots. When the 18mg Nic Shots are added to the e-liquid this is diluted to 3mg.
At Vaporony, we have a 70ml Unicorn Bottle which would enable you to fill the contents of your 60ml Shortfill bottle (50ml of e-liquid) and TWO Nic Shots. Please note this will not dilute to a 6mg as you may expect by doubling the Nic Shots, but will create an end result of 5.1mg. The difference between 5.1mg and 6mg is barely noticeable.

How do I reduce my Nicotine levels?

How you reduce your nicotine is completely up to you. Everyone is different and what works for you may not work for someone else.
Gradually you want to step down a nicotine strength but this is easier said than done. Willpower is essential and don't rush it, stepping down too early may result in a cigarette craving.

We are here to help you every step of the way.

Can I vape anywhere?

The answer to this is no, although it does not fall under the smoking ban per say. You cannot vape in Hospitals, airports, flights, doctors surgeries etc. However there is no law technically stoping you from vaping in Pubs and Clubs. As these are privately owned properties it is up to the business whether or not you can vape on their premises. If unsure please ask, never assume that it is allowed.

Flying with your device/e-liquids

It is safe to fly with your device which will need to be carried in your hand luggage.

You may be required to remove your batteriesfrom your device (external battery devices only) and store in a plastic battery box

Empty your tank before you fly. The change in cabin pressure can cause your tank to leak.
E-liquids can be no larger than 100ml per bottle. You can take multiple bottles.

Vaping is prohibited inside airports are during your flight.

Can I use my vape while on holiday?

It is illegal to vape in some countries, such as Thailand and Dubai, therefore we highly recommend that you research vaping laws/rules for your destination before flying.
