Because e cigs are so different from tobacco cigarettes, getting used to the way they work can be a challenge. If you’re new to Mistic Electronic Cigarettes and are trying to recharge one of our reusable e cigs, you may have hooked your battery up to a charger only to find yourself wondering, “Is it charging?” If you’re uncertain, this quick guide will answer all your questions about charging your Mistic.
You can also take a look at our frequently asked questions to see a complete list of answers to customers’ questions about Mistic e cigarettes.
The Simple Answer:
If the LED light in the Mistic USB charger is on and the tip of your battery is glowing red, the charger is working. If the light on the USB charger is red, the battery is still charging. If the light is green, the battery is done charging.
The Full Answer:
Charging your Mistic e cig battery begins with our USB charger. The USB charger is compatible with any USB port, including the ones in your computer and even your television or car. We also offer our customers wall chargers and car chargers, but these chargers also work in conjunction with our USB charger. The USB charger is included in both of our starter kits, and you simply need to plug the USB charger into the wall or car charger to begin charging on the go or in an outlet.
To begin charging, simply screw the battery into the USB charger and plug the charger into a USB port or whichever Mistic charger you want to use. The LED light on the USB charger will tell you when the battery is fully charged.
After about five hours or less, the light will change from red to green to indicate that the battery is ready for use. To keep charging time to a minimum, we suggest recharging the battery before it is completely drained.
Our products are always shipped to you with a partially-charged lithium ion battery. To maximize the life and charging capacity of the battery, you may want to fully charge the battery straight from the box. That way, your Mistic battery will last for even longer, usually for years.
From a single charge, your battery should last for around two days before you need to recharge it, depending on your individual vaping habits.
Your e-cigarette's battery will also let you know when it needs to charge. When the power of the battery dips below 3.3V, or the battery is nearly dead, the LED light at the tip of the battery will flash ten times. Then, the battery will shut off completely until you recharge it.
If your battery has shut down but you know it shouldn’t be out of power, you may have accidentally shut it down by drawing on your e cig for too long. If you continuously inhale for more than five seconds, your battery will temporarily stop working to make sure your Mistic doesn't overheat.
If you’ve tried to recharge your battery but it doesn’t seem to be working, make sure the charging light is on. On some devices, power may not flow to the charger if the device is off. If the light on your USB charger is not on, no power is flowing to the charger. Similarly, the car charger will not charge a battery if the car’s battery is not on.
