How to REWRAP your Batteries
February 20th, 2018 1:00PM

If you are using 18650 batteries in your vape, it is very important to keep them in tip-top shape. 

It may not seem like a big deal, the actual wraps on the battery are something you actually have to pay close attention to. Now all battery wraps over time will tear, but they’re actually very easy to replace and I’m going to show you how to do that today.

Now the tools you will need will be the actual battery wraps themselves. Also, you are going to need a little tool to remove the old wrap, in this case, we’re using an old cotton pick  and lastly you are going to need a heat gun. (A hair dryer will also work - it’s just going to take a little bit of extra time). 

First up, grab your batteries and carefully remove the old wrap. Now all batteries have a protective seal on the positive end. Which will come off when you take off the wrap, you want to make sure you hang to these. I’ve lost so many.

Now once you’ve removed the old wrap, take your now naked battery and slide it into the new wrap. Then you want to take that little seal and drop it into the positive end of the battery, and use your thumb to pinch down the wrap and the seal together.

This is where the heat gun comes in. Turn your heat gun to its lowest setting, or if you’re using a hair dryer put it on its highest setting and start heating up the top end of the wrap. You’re going to start noticing the wrap is going to kind of snap into place and form around the battery, and as soon as you have one side of the positive end kind of sealed together, you can then take off your thumb and do the other side! Now one thing I want to mention is that you want to be very careful you don’t burn yourself in the process and also don’t have the heat on the battery for too long.  

As soon as you have the positive end in place you can slowly work your way down the battery until you hit the negative end.  As soon as everything kind of forms into place, you’re essentially all done.

Another thing to mention is, that to make sure the wrap has enough space to cover both the positive and negative sides of the battery. 

If this all seems a little bit intimidating to you, you can actually come to any Dashvapes location and we’ll rewrap your batteries for free with any purchase! Also if you have multiple sets of batteries we have a wide variety of colours to help differentiate between them.
