    I think around 3 to 4 hours as a rule.

    That depends upon the size, but I'd say between 3 to 5 hours.

    deja vu - it's not necessary to post the same question more than once.  Just an FYI. :)

    They come to you partially charged so you can use them for a short time just to see how they work.  Depending on how much you used it before putting it on the charger and how much charge it came to you with usually varies greatly.  So I can only say "it depends".  The best way to use your battery is to not let it run down to the stage where the endcap blinks which indicates that it is about to lose its charge totally.  As you grow accustomed to vaping you will be able to detect the point where the vapor is not as heavy as it was at a full charge and the flavor will diminish.  This is the best time to put it on the charger.  You cannot overcharge the battery by leaving it on the charger too long as there is a cutoff within the charger that stops the charging process after full battery capacity is reached.  Batteries are said to last for 200 charges.  That means 200 full charges from blinking to full charge.  If you do partial charges based on the above parameters then you are not doing full charges and are therefore "beating the odds" of the life of the battery.

    Having at least 3 batteries is almost a must.  One you are using, one on the charger and one fully charged.  Different sized batteries last for different amounts of time and take different amounts of time to charge.

    Per marni, leave it on the charger for at least three hrs even if the batt turns green.

  • visionary333visionary333 Posts: 1,446Member
    Whoa! I didn't see that coming.

    My charger light usually turns green within about 20 minutes (even when the batter was dead ie. blinking)... If I leave my battery on the charger will it continue to charge?
  • kstraub7707kstraub7707 Posts: 1,891V2 Veteran
    @brnbear44 - yes!  :)

    Hi guys, newby here.
    just to be 100% clear about this...

    1.- I can safely leave my batteries in the cahrger for several hours (say overnight) without any harm to the battery, they wont "overcharge"

    2.- Even thoug the light on the charger might turn green, it does NOT mean the battery is 100% charged. In other words, even if the charger led is green, battery might not be 100% charged yet.

    is this correct?

  • DixieDixie Posts: 6,230V2 Veteran
    @Benzin yes on both questions.  The battery will not overcharge you can charge them all night.  if you know the battery is dead ( blinked ) then yes a min 4 hour charge is required to full charge. it is better to top off your batteries though than to let them go dead each time.  It will make the battery last longer.

    I will add however that I have been told by CS not to leave them on charge for an extended period of time, Extended period of time was defined as 24 hrs or longer.

    @lulu836: because it's too stupid for brunettes? jk :)

    V2 is unequivocally the BEST e-cig on the market. Purchase the 'Ultimate' starter kit. You will NOT regret it!
