Protecting my gear from the heat?
Getting ready to go on a long road trip…and since it summer in Arizona I'm a little concerned about my stuff overheating in the car. Of course I'll be using the A/C while I'm driving but I may have some long stops. Should I put my stuff in a cooler?

What about using it outside on a hot day? I find sometimes my batteries don't work as well in high temperatures and I am wondering if there are any precautions or special packing I should do for my ecig stuff before I travel?
Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and extreme temperatures can reduce your batteries life from what I read.

I know that my juices can thin out a bit when kept in a hot car and this can cause the juice to leak past some o rings in tanks and cleromizers so that might be something to think about but the big one is the batteries.

I use pretty expensive sony vtc 4 and vtc 5 batteries in my mods so I never leave my device in a hot car for more than 15 minutes or so. I usually just put the device in my pocket although I never carry just the batteries in my pocket since they MIGHT make contact with other metal items like keys and short out.
Batteries get damaged by very high temperatures and also extreme cold. Especially the Lithium-Ions ones. Consider maybe driving with widows open for aeration and also not leaving them in the car. |
