How to Use the Veedverks Variable Voltage Vape Pen Battery
December 09, 2016
The Veedverks Variable Voltage (VV) Battery has a full array of functions, despite being simple in its design. You interact with the device and change its settings using its one input: the Touch Sensor. It is located on the end with the circular LED light and the Veedverks “V” logo. By touching a finger to the tip of the battery one to five times, you can perform a variety of functions. The number of taps and the colors indicated by the LED light can seem like a lot to remember at first, but after using the battery a couple times, you’ll find it’s a snap. This guide well help you become acquainted with your new VV Battery.
Both the Veedverks Starter Kit and the VV Battery standalone package include the following instructions/reference for battery operation:
Let’s take a closer look at each section.
By touching the Touch Sensor five times, you can toggle between OFF mode and READY mode. When changing from OFF to READY, the LED light will flash on. The color of the light will either be teal, blue, or purple, indicating the current voltage setting (explained under the Change Voltage section below). When changing from READY to OFF, the LED light will not flash.
The two modes are explained below:
- OFF means the unit is completely shut down, and nothing is receiving battery power. When the VV Battery is not being used, it should be kept in OFF mode.
- READY mode is really not much different than OFF mode, with one exception: The internal air pressure sensor is powered, ready, and waiting to detect when you draw (inhale) on the mouthpiece. Although the drain on the battery is negligible in READY mode, it should be switched to OFF to prevent accidentally activating the heating system.
Four taps on the Touch Sensor will send the device to PREHEAT mode. You can tell you are in preheat mode when you see the LED light cycling through all the colors of the rainbow. Veedverks brand oil does not require preheating, so this function is for when the VV Battery is used to heat thicker substances.
PREHEAT mode times out in 30 seconds. If you accidentally enter PREHEAT mode, you can exit by simply tapping once on the Touch Sensor or by drawing on the mouthpiece.
Three taps on the Touch Sensor will cycle the unit through the three voltage settings. The voltage settings are indicated by the teal, blue, and purple colors. The voltage levels are explained below:
- Teal indicates the lowest voltage, 2.4 volts. This will create a smaller vapor hit, but it delivers more flavor.
- Blue indicates medium voltage, or 3.2 volts. It provides a balanced hit to the user.
- Purple indicates the highest voltage level, 4.0 volts. It creates the most vapor, providing the user with the biggest hit.
At the highest voltage setting, three taps on the Touch Sensor will cycle the unit back to the lowest setting.
As noted in the Off/Ready section above, w hen changing from OFF mode to READY mode by tapping 5 times, the LED l ight will flash on. The color it flashes will either be teal, blue, or purple, indicating the current voltage setting.
Two taps on the Touch Sensor do nothing. Two shalt thou not tap, excepting that thou then proceed to three.
Check Charge Level
By touching the Touch Sensor one time (or simply holding your finger on it), you can tell if the VV Battery is in OFF mode or READY mode. If the LED light does nothing, the unit is OFF. If it lights up, the unit is in READY mode.
The color of the light indicates the charge level of the battery. Green indicates that the battery is fully charged. As the battery is depleted, the color changes from green to yellow, orange, and then red. The ideal time to recharge the unit is when it first turns from orange to red.
This chart indicates approximate numbers of draws that are remaining at a given battery charge and voltage setting. A higher voltage setting will obviously deplete the battery more quickly.Veedverks' innovative variable voltage CBD vape pen battery is the most versatile on the market, allowing you to change voltages and preheat thick oil
Volt vape pen instructions
If battery is fully discharged the voltage will drop below where it can be charged and the LED will flash but the pen will no longer work. Please especially note that the LED will flash and auto power off if you hold the button to draw current for longer than 8 seconds, this is to prevent overheat!
Fully discharging your battery may harm it until it eventually appears to be dead (once it reaches a point below 2.5v it will no longer charge with our chargers)! It is much better to do a partial discharge as this reduces stress and prolongs battery life. Please remember that elevated temperature and high currents affect battery cycle life. Also, Lithium-ion batteries suffer from stress when exposed to heat, as does keeping a cell at a high charge voltage.
We highly encourage you to please take care of your Batteries!
How to Care for Your Battery:
Did you know that compared to a FULL discharge, a partial discharge reduces stress and prolongs battery life? Our batteries are Lithium-Ion rechargeable batteries, and normal care for Li-Ion devices applies to our batteries as well. As an overview: elevated temperature and high currents affect cycle life, and Lithium-ion suffers from stress when exposed to heat or keeping a cell at a high charge voltage. In short all of these things affect how quickly stress breaks down (oxidizes) the internal cell structure of the battery.
Avoid completely discharging lithium-ion batteries!
If a lithium-ion battery is discharged below 2.5 volts per cell, a safety circuit built into the battery opens and the battery appears to be dead to the end user. In some cases the original charger may also now be of no use, as only battery analyzers with the boost function have a chance of recharging the battery. However in most cases your battery will be somewhere between 2.55 and 2.65 volts, so simply leave the battery on the charger for over a day to reset the reference voltage level and fully charge (including final slowest/trickle charge) and your battery may resume normal operations.
Also, for safety reasons, do not recharge deeply discharged lithium-ion batteries if they have been stored in that condition for several months. For extended storage, discharge a lithium-ion battery to about 40 percent and then TURN the battery OFF (five clicks with our batteries) and store it in a cool place. Storing the battery fully charged means oxidation of lithium-ion is at its highest rate. Keep your batteries at room temperature if possible
That means between 20 and 25 degrees C. The worst thing that can happen to a lithium-ion battery is to be fully charged and then be subjected to elevated temperatures. This is because heat is by far the largest factor when it comes to reducing lithium-ion battery life. So don’t leave or charge your mobile device’s battery in your car when it’s hot out. Also be aware that fully discharging a battery in a short period of time (the vape cloud phenomena is a good example of this) and then expecting to quickly charge it also affects the lithium-ion internal cell structure. Allow partial discharges and avoid full ones (usually)
Lithium-ion batteries are not like NiCd (Nickel-Cadmium) batteries, in that they do not get a charge “memory.” This means deep-discharge cycles (fully discharging then recharging) are not required. It’s far better for the battery’s health to use partial-discharge cycles, and not fully discharge or fully charge the battery in one go, as this creates heat and increases the rate of micro-fractures in the cell structure.
Some resources will tell you to fully discharge occasionally to ‘set the battery meter’ on digital devices like Phones, however be aware that this is ONLY setting a reference level FOR that metering circuit/function. Also, continuous partial discharges create a condition called digital memory in the METER circuit itself (not in the battery as in NiCd), decreasing the accuracy of the device’s power gauge. So by letting the battery discharge to the cut-off point and then recharge the power gauge WILL be recalibrated. However fully discharging a battery still has an effect on the Lithium-Ion cell structure, so balance the need for ‘proper metering’ with longterm lifespan.Bodhi High is a Holistic-Minded and Community-Growth-Oriented Company dedicated to Producing Premium Products that Awaken Your Senses. ]]>
