How long does a spinner usually last?

This topic is 900 days old. It's a bit dusty and has been automatically locked.

I'm not sure if different sizes has different life spans but my 1100 have been working 6 months so far. Since I just started buying the 1300 Spinners I was wondering how long they will last me. I have heard that if you rotate batteries and let them rest a while between uses it makes them last longer. I have also heard that it is best to use one until it goes completely dead before charging them back up. Are these things true?

I noticed the vape time I got out of my Spinner began to decrease after about 6 months. My Spinner used to last me about 10 hours of constant vaping. It now lasts about 4 hours. No it does not need to be fully discharged before charging again.

eta... My Twists went about a year before my vape time decreased. Joyetech> Vision. :)

The only thing about the Twists is I have a hard time seeing the numbers. But I noticed that they last longer too. I bought one of each at the same time, used them both equally and the Twist lasted longer. I just wish they would make the numbers easier to read AND then there is the thing about they don't carry that great RAINBOW color. :yes

Okay, first let's dispel a myth. Lithium ion batteries can and do develop a memory. There has been research on it. Plus, anyone who consistently uses or used a laptop while plugged in can tell you how dramatically it's shortened the battery life (my husband's first laptop - outdated now - can no longer be used without the power cord, because he did not rely on battery power almost at all when he was actively using it four years ago last time he was in school).

I always used my stick batteries until they would flash when I pressed the button. By the time I got my Zmax, I was getting anywhere between 4 - 6 waking hours per charge, but that's because I come pretty close to chain vaping. And that was with a 900 mah regular eGo. But if you do a Google search on how long the batteries last, you can probably find about how many charge cycles they are good for.

Wrong: They have no memory effect, which means that you do not have to completely discharge them before recharging, as with some other battery chemistries.

IMO, the Spinner seems to be a bit tougher as I tend to drop my sometimes and the twist do not fair well to drops.

Jeff, I've done the research. It used to be thought that lithium ions didn't develop a memory, but more recent scientific research is proving the opposite.

There are different constructions for lith/ion batteries and of course many applications. The variety we are concerned with do not have a memory.

looks like you did research on Prius batteries. :D

Yeah, I had to pry one out of my treads the other day. Damn annoying, the Prius..... :)

By my calculations about the same as 100 ego twists....but they last 8 years ....

Anything you ever want to learn about batteries http://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/lithium_based_batteries

and I quote

In 2009, roughly 38 percent of all batteries by revenue were Li‑ion. Li-ion is a low-maintenance battery, an advantage many other chemistries cannot claim. The battery has no memory and does not need exercising (deliberate full discharge) to keep in shape.

For starters I just want to say that not everything in this world needs to conform to LGBT specifications. I would much rather have a battery that works in a color that I don't want then a battery that doesn't work in a color I do.

Most people are not aware of this. Many rechargeable batteries that have circuitry that is installed within the battery also have a limited number of times they can be recharged. I'm going to pick an arbitrary number of 500. I do so because every manufacturer will have a different number of charges you can apply to a battery. Every time you plug it in for charging 1 is reduced from that number. When it reaches zero you can no longer we charge that battery. They claim the reason for that is for your protection avoiding possible explosions. That is kind of true. I believe the real reason is they want you to buy another battery. Almost everything in this world comes down to money. If you are an expert then you can remove the wrapping from the battery and also bypass the circuitry which disables recharging once that number hits zero. But now these days they use materials which probably would not be a good idea to override this configuration. They said it at 500 times. I believe shortly after whatever that number is the internal materials would most likely break down and possibly cause a battery to explode Gore and recharge. In my opinion it's probably better just to get a new battery rather than risk an explosion that could harm you or burn down your house.
