When the Vape Safe was first announced, we were one of the first to spill the beans, and give you all the details. This was at a time where vapers were experiencing battery failure in their devices more frequently. It wasn’t just due to vapers pushing the limits of what our batteries could handle, but it was also from our poor judgement that lead to unsafe battery and atomizer conditions. Furthermore, this was also a time where vapers started exploring mechanical mods and rebuildable atomizers more often.

With that said, our industry fell into this some-what revitalizing and uplifting boom of mechanical mods and rebuildable atomizers. There’s no denying it, 2013 was the year of rebuildables and mechanicals, so it is especially important to revisit one of the most overlooked, yet most prominent vaping accessory this industry has ever seen… the Vape Safe Fuse.

Since the industry has flocked to these devices so vigorously, the risk of thermal failure with batteries has become more of a threat to consumers. In addition, many batteries that are being labeled as ‘Protected’ or ‘IMR’ aren’t safe and they’re becoming a huge risk as mislabeled batteries circulate around the e-cigarette market from unreliable sources.  Even worse, they are being more frequently used with the unprotected mechanical mods.

patriotThe mechanical mod is just that, mechanical; it houses no electronics or safety features and relies on the battery and the users judgement. The rebuildable atomizer poses just as much of a risk. These atomizers allow the consumer to rebuild their own coil setups more easily, and if that user isn’t careful or makes a mistake, the atomizer can cause the battery to go thermal and possibly cause serious harm. Both of the devices have their risks, but when you put them together and you lack the knowledge to properly use them, the results could be devastating.

The Vape Safe Fuse will be that added layer of protection, the lifeline or plan-b to your current setup. When placed onto the negative terminal of your battery, the fuse will trip when the current drawn out of (or in to) the battery exceeds a certain amount.

In this day and age, the Vape Safe Fuse is especially beneficial to those who are using rebuildable atomizers or mechanical mods. Even though many of these advanced e-cig guru’s feel that they don’t need the Vape Safe, all it takes is for you to forget to lock your button.

Take one extra step to protect yourself and others! Think safety people!

      The issue with the Vapesafe is if you are a sub ohm vaper which many vapers are, it really is no good. It will trip while you are vaping. The vapesafe is rated for a hold current of only 3.5 A Even vaping at 1.0 ohm with a fully charged battery is above that so for many if not most vapers vaping with mechanical mods it won’t work. I do not consider myself a “cloudchaser, or really even much of a sub ohm vaper. I usually vapee right around .9-1. With even that kind of vaping the Vapesafe fuse will blow while vaping between 3.5-6 A for an extended periosd of time and anything over 6A at all will bloe the fuse automatically. Maybe one day they will come out with a vapesafe 3 that will be able to be used for more mechanical mod users. It is a grea idea if the amp limit were not so low.
