Automatic vs. Manual Batteries
The automatic batteries are the ones without a button on the side of the electronic cigarette battery itself. This means that when you put the cartridge/filter end of the cigarette to your mouth and inhale, it kicks into action and the vapor and liquid work to give you the much needed nicotine high.
A manual electronic cigarette battery will have a small button on the side. When you put the cigarette to your mouth and inhale, you must press the button at the same time otherwise you won’t get anything out of your electronic cigarette. It’s basically only activated when the button is pressed.
There is one thing that really stands out about manual batteries and that is the fact that they will generally last longer. There is no wastage with the the button-operated electronic cigarette because the system itself won’t work unless the button is pressed down. This means that there will be less drainage on the battery and on the cartridges and generally, you will find that they both last a little bit longer.
The automatic batteries may be smoother to the fingers and minus the hassle but there can be a lot of battery wastage and you may need to replace components of your electronic cigarette on a more frequent basis.
As far as price is concerned, there is not normally a price difference between automatic and manual batteries. They are the same price and for the most part, you can get most colours and designs in both varieties. As we have seen, there are both advantages and disadvantages for manual and automatic electronic cigarette batteries and when it comes down to it, you’ll need to make your own mind up. As long as you find yourself a decent, reputable electronic cigarette company with good reviews, you’ll be more than happy with your decision to make the switch from real cigarettes to the electronic ones.
