Vape Battery Lingo

Posted by David on

We all know that in order to enjoy a satisfying vaping experience, you need to have the right batteries. Despite the fact that batteries are so crucial to one’s vape session, they’re critically overlooked and unappreciated. The fact of the matter is that without a battery, a person can’t vape. And, yet, so many people don’t really know much about how vape batteries work.

One reason why so many people don’t know a whole lot about vape batteries is because there’s a good deal of vocabulary to learn before knowing what to look for. That’s why we’re here today. We’re gonna be breaking down the various lingo used to describe vape batteries. This way, you’ll have a better idea of what to look for the next time you need to purchase a new battery for your vaping device.

Why Knowing Your Vape Battery Lingo is Crucial

Not knowing your vape battery lingo can seriously cost you, literally. Because vaping devices are so compact and easy to use these days, we forget that they’re actually highly complex in terms of their technology. This means that each device demands the right battery stats in order to function. Using the wrong battery can damage your device, and even damage you if you’re not careful.

So, allow us to walk you through some of the more important terms associated with vape batteries. By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly what to look at when you’re shopping for vape batteries.


Capacity refers to the maximum amount of energy that can be derived from the battery, and it’s measured in milliampere hours. Have you ever noticed that when you purchase a new vape battery, you see an “mAh” at the end? That stands for milliampere hours, which means that the number before the “mAh” is the capacity.

Knowing which capacity your battery is is extremely important. If your capacity is too low, your vaping device won’t give you much vapor, and the demands that the device puts on the battery can be quite dangerous. Similarly, if the capacity is too high, too much energy can be running through your device, which can be equally dangerous.

Voltage and Wattage

Voltage refers to the amount of energy that a battery can provide to a device. Voltage and wattage share a very close relationship, as it turns out. The higher the voltage of your battery, the higher the wattage of your device. This is why you must choose your battery based on the maximum wattage of your vaping device. This will ensure that your battery can actually handle the demands of the wattage that you have your device set at.

Dual Battery

You may have noticed that a lot of mods say “dual battery.” This simply means that the mod requires two batteries rather than one. Most of today’s box mods take two batteries, as this allows for the proper amount of voltage so that the device can reach its high wattage level.

Integrated Battery

An integrated battery is simply a battery that’s built into the mod. Most pod mods have integrated batteries.


Li-ion refers to lithium-ion batteries, which are the batteries that are compatible with conventional mods.

Keep These Terms Handy

Knowing the lingo surrounding the world of vape batteries will help you know how to purchase the best batteries for your mod. Use this guide to discover the vocabulary that you need to know before making a purchase. This will help you avoid making a costly mistake.
