Mechanical Mod Safety
MECHANICAL MOD SAFETY GUIDE
Before using a mechanical mod (or mech mod) there are a few things to take into consideration.
Mechanical mods use lithium-ion batteries, but unlike regulated mods mechanical mods have no safety features (e.g short protection, overcharge protection or overheat protection). Without safety features a lithium battery can be dangerous without the proper precautions. It is crucial you understand these before choosing a mechanical mod, especially for vapers new to using an unregulated device.
Mechanical mods are great to use with the proper understanding. Mechanical mods dont have screens or adjustable settings so you are left with unadulterated power and no complex electronic components, making them generally more reliable, efficient and sturdy than most regulated mods.
Only use reputable batteries
Batteries not sold by the aforementioned suppliers are likely rewrapped batteries, and possibly lower quality batches, often with false or misleading limits on them. If the battery information sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
Only use a battery within safe limits (and know the safe limits of your battery)
Know how to calculate your current
Make sure you’re not shorting your battery
Dont over discharge your batteries
Do not invert your battery/batteries
Only use batteries which have undamaged wraps.
If the wrap of your battery is damaged the metal outer of the battery can come into contact with the mod and cause it to short.
- Only use an RDA with a protruding positive pin. The positive pin of your RDA needs to protrude further than the threads (the negative) on 510 connector. If you use something with a floating pin, where the positive doesn’t protrude, you can cause a hard short.
- Remove the battery before changing or removing your RDA. If you don’t do this the battery can short on the 510 connector.
Above are the bare minimum safety precautions you need to take when using a mechanical mod. We strongly advise continuing to read and learn more about using mechanical mods before using one, there is lots of great information about them online. Stay safe and happy vaping!
