How To Charge Your MarkTen Electronic Cigarette
The MarkTen E-cigarette is a compact "cigalike" device that is purpose-built for smokers trying to quit. Its sleek, portable design maintains comfort and resembles an analog quite well. Unlike other e-cigs, however, the battery runs at 90mAh, about 40mAh lower than most kits. Therefore, knowing how to charge is a must for this device. Here's a quick breakdown.
Similar to most cigalikes, the MarkTen comes with a screw-in USB charger. When the battery needs to be charged, the LED tip will blink rapidly. Once this happens, disconnect the bottom battery from the cartridge by simply unscrewing the pieces. Then, screw the battery into the USB charger and insert the charger into a USB port. The LED indicator will illuminate to show that the battery is charging. Once the battery is fully charged, the LED tip will turn off. Disconnect the battery from the USB charger and connect it back to the cartridge and vape away.
Generally, it's a good idea to understand your device's battery cycle. Like most electronics, the more you use your e-cig, the lower it tends to perform. Most batteries tend to have 300-500 charge cycles, but to get that many uses from a battery you'll have to avoid depleting it entirely, which could cut its lifespan in half. Knowing this, it's best to never let your device die completely. Doing so will dwindle your battery's lifespan and it'll become useless much faster.
Another thing to note is that you shouldn't leave your charging MarkTen unattended. While modern e-cigs are generally regarded as safe to use and charge responsibly, things can still go wrong. For example, if your MarkTen starts to overheat while charging and you don't notice it, it might end up exploding. Always keep your eye on your device while it's charging, if only just to make sure nothing's wrong.
Using the same logic, it follows that you shouldn't let your MarkTen charge overnight. While it seems like an obvious thing to do since charging at night won't interfere with your vaping during the day, it can actually lead to overcharging, which in turn can lead to thermal runaway, ruining your battery and potentially resulting in an explosion. Therefore, you should unplug your fully charged device as soon as possible.
The MarkTen is a favorite of ex-smokers because it resembles an analog quite well. Therefore, it makes sense to take care of your device and know how to get the best out of it. By following the tips above, your MarkTen will last you and be the vape of your dreams.
