There’s a reason our Ooze Smart USB charger or Micro charger is included with every vape battery—and it might be more extreme than you think. More than keeping your vape battery functioning correctly, this charger prevents any fire hazards that come from an overheated battery.
This is because our Smart USB Charger has a safety mechanism built in to stop the power flow from the outlet to the battery as soon as the battery reaches a full charge. Think of a dead battery like an empty tank. The charger creates a flow of individual power cells that flow into the empty tank of the battery. Once the tank is full, no more cells can be added.
Overheating occurs when you try to force extra power cells into the battery. There is no room for them to enter or move around, which just builds up an excess amount of heat. If left for an extended amount of time, that heat can get intense, sometimes leading to a fire or even an explosion.
So how does the magic actually work? We developed a smart chip that blocks the energy flow the moment the battery is charged. Other vape battery chargers continue to fuel those tired and compacted cells, even when the battery is charged. Not only does this pose a risk for fire, it will surely weaken those cells over time. Your battery will be unable to hold a charge for long or even charge at all.
The Ooze charger, on the other hand, will let those cells rest as soon as they’re fully charged. You can plug it in and forget about it, and come back hours later to a fully charged battery without risking overheating and combustion. Plus, the cells inside the battery will remain strong, allowing your vape battery to hold a charge for much longer.
This, of course, is why your warranty is only valid when you charge your pen with an Ooze charger. This isn't to force you to only buy our accessories, but to make sure that you are safe and protected from harm throughout the lifetime of your Ooze product. Since most non-Ooze USB chargers will continue to charge the battery even when the charge is full, we can’t back up exploded batteries (it’s happened).
Even if you use a non-Ooze vape battery, there’s still hope for your pen! The Smart USB charger is compatible with all 510-thread vape pen batteries. The smart chip will work the same way with your battery and detect when your pen is fully charged so it never overheats!
