Joyetech AIO
Hey guys- I'm new to vaping.
I got an ego AIO the other day, and want to know how safe that model is, and the chance of a battery failing(exploding). How do I charge this?

RE: Joyetech AIO
Welcome to TVF, a great place to ask questions. There are a few different models of the eGo AIO, main difference to do with battery size. They charge via USB cable that comes with it. I've not read or encountered any issues with them. I bought one for my daughter and she was quite happy with it. This is one of the better starter devices.

RE: Joyetech AIO
It is very safe as long as use proper batteries. Check out the battery FAq. The Evic Aio you can take the battery out and charge extrernally. The Ego Aio you have a port to charge internally.

RE: Joyetech AIO
Mine is the AIO with internal battery.
So I can plug it into my PC? Will a iPhone charger work?

Additionally, is it safe to drain and then recharge?

I just don't want it to explode.

The eGO AIO models all have internal batteries, just different power batteries.

I wouldn't use an iPhone charger, just the charger that came with it. You can charge it on a PC. I'm not sure about an AC/USB iPhone adapter, that should work. You would have to damage the internal battery casing for it to explode. Vaping is safe if you use common sense. Most explosions you hear about, are external batteries that are roughly treated, like carrying them loose in your pocket with change. Right now, just enjoy.

Are the internal batteries usually 18650 too?
Also, no charger was included. Just the cable

RE: Joyetech AIO
Kreger welcome. Keep asking questions - that attitude will keep you safe!

Any battery can explode, including the one in your smoke detector, the one under the hood of your car, etc...18650s and all other cells used for vaping devices can also fail however with caution, the risk is absolute minimal.

As others have stated already, use the supplied and approved charging device for that battery, keep an eye on it - don't put it on a charger and go on holidays! Smile

If you are charging it and it starts to get HOT -- warm is okay but if it gets hot, unplug it and don't use it - simple basic precautions and you'll truly enjoy vaping.

I really appreciate it.
One thing to note- it only came with a cable. No wall charger. Is computer charging the best? Or a USB hub?

RE: Joyetech AIO
You can use your PC or even if you have any wall plug with the USB connector... the basic model used for most portable device will be fine. Plug it into the cable you received with the device and just make sure it doesn't get hot - I've never had a problem with using any of the generic connectors as they are designed for charging via USB cable....

The reference to not using your phone charger is that some people will use the USB cable provided for iPhone or other devices...the cabling may not be of suitable gauge for that application...but the actual part that plugs into the wall is standard.

RE: Joyetech AIO
Thanks guys.
Also, using a 1 ohm coil rather than a 0.6 ohm, will be less demanding on the battery, right?

And sorry for the stupid questions- but is it ok to run down the battery until the <10% indication comes up?
