Like most electronic devices available on the market, dry herb vaporizers are equipped with Lithium-Ion batteries. These essential batteries present in our laptops, smartphones, etc., make it possible to have a nomad use of your vaporizer. You can now live wherever you want. But unfortunately, these batteries are often too weak and can only perform 6 or 7 sessions of 15 minutes. Indeed, heating a component to over 200°C in a few seconds requires a large amount of energy. Even though technology is advancing day by day, no one has yet found the solution for batteries that would allow hours or even days of sessions.
Explanation: How Lithium-Ion batteries work?
Lithium is originally a metal. Like all elements and materials, it is composed of electrons and protons, but with a specificity; electrons can easily be transformed into Ion, hence the name Lithium-Ion. The principle of operation is a little complicated for us who are not crazy scientists, but here is a small summary explanation..:
The batteries are composed of a cathode, and an anode. After charging, the anode contains a relatively large accumulation of lithium ion. When the battery connects to a device it has to power, it creates a potential difference that causes all these small particles to move. The electrons are sent to all the components of the device, which will turn it on and thus make it work. The Ions will flee towards the Cathode because they are attracted by the negative charges of the electrons.
It happens more or less the opposite phenomenon when the battery is recharged. Ions recharge in the anode and electrons in the cathode and so on. It is of course a scientific popularization to summarize the phenomenon.
So here’s how our dear portable vaporizers are powered!
