Unsafe Battery Wraps

Click here for a video tutorial on  rewrapping batteries.

What does an unsafe battery wrap look like? Let’s take a look!

Batteries wraps aren’t just for printing brand, voltage and amperage information on, they also keep you safe. The positive post of the battery, which is the small pin at the top, is what makes contact with the center pin of the atomizer. The negative of the battery isn’t jut a pin, it’s actually the entire outer casing of the battery and it makes contact with the threaded section of the atomizer.

Here’s an image that /u/GobbleThisObelisk posted on Reddit that explains why a battery that has a damaged wrap is unsafe:

Each of these batteries could potentially make contact with items in your pocket such as keys and change, this is why rewrapping batteries and keeping them in battery containers such as the ones pictured below is crucial. Wraps and cases can be bought from many places but we recommend IMRBatteries and Illumn.
