Lithium batteries are not like all the other rechargeable batteries you have come across before like car batteries or rechargeable NiCad/NiMm AA batteries they are a lot more powerful and need extra respect due the the amount of energy they store. It used to be the worst thing that could happen is you left a battery in a devices for a year and find it has leaked some acid or alkali and made a mess, lithium batteries can be very violent if they go wrong. Thankfully this is rare and with a little education and common sense you can reduce the risk even more.
With these extra concerns you should avoid cheap batteries and chargers and only purchase from trusted vendors to avoid potentially dangerous counterfeits.
Lithium batteries do not have a memory effect like NiCad batteries so you don't need the run them flat before recharging, if fact they will last longer if you recharge them earlier. Neither do the use a "trickle charge" like you car battery, once they are fully charged the charger should automatically turn off, but why not add an extra level of safety and unplug your charger once they are charged. Lithium batteries do not they need a special long conditioning charger when they are new or discharge-recharge conditioning charge like some other batteries
For the sake of these guides we are going to clarify these into 3 categories each with their own section: • Batteries charged via the atomiser connection which will refer to as eGo type, we will include cigalikes in this category. • Batteries charged via a USB cable. • Batteries cells (just a battery with no switches) that are charged on a standalone charger.
