Emergency Preparedness – 5 Ways to Keep Your E-Cig Powered When the Lights Go Out
Date Posted: July 20, 2012
No matter where you live, the unpredictability of nature and unforeseen events can cause power outages that can put you in the dark ages. For anyone who lives near the East coast, summer marks the beginning of hurricane season. Winter threatens Northern states with blizzards and tornadoes pop up in the central states. There’s a lot that goes into preparing yourself and your home for an emergency. Stock up on food and water, purchase extra candles and keep your gas tank filled. You need to make sure you’ve got a radio, flashlights and batteries. But what about your e-cig??
Power outages are an all-too-common occurrence in the wake of a storm or natural disaster. We’ve put together a few tips to help you make sure you’re not left with a dead e-cig battery.
1. Be prepared! To be safe, keep a few weeks supply of e-cig cartridges and e-liquid available at all times. Tornados or earthquakes occur almost without warning, and it’s better to be safe than sorry. Hurricanes and blizzards are usually tracked days, if not weeks in advance. This gives you ample time to make sure you’re well stocked on cartridges and have all of your batteries fully charged and ready to go.
2. It is recommended to have several electronic cigarette chargers and batteries just in case you need a backup. Charge all of your batteries at night so you know you’ll have a few days of power.
3. Have your V2 Cigs Car Adapter on hand. In the event that power is not restored quickly, you may have to go days without access to electricity. With your car adapter, you can easily charge your battery while running emergency errands.
4. The V2 Portable Charging Case is great for charging in an emergency. With a possible 4 to 6 charges, your Portable Charging Case is a great way to stay fully powered, no matter what the situation.
5. For those of us who use e-cigs passionately and often, a solar-powered charger may be the best fit for staying powered-up. Available online and at many camping stores, solar-powered chargers are surprisingly affordable and capable of charging a range of USB powered items.
