Hurricanes, blizzards, solar storms, earthquakes or tornadoes could affect our electricity supply and that will leave us in the dark. It doesn’t matter where you live; you are never safe from natural calamities of blackouts.  You should always be prepared and keep some food and water stored in case of emergencies next to a flashlight, a radio and a medical kit… but what about your ecigarette?

Here are some helpful tips that will help you keep your e-cigarette powered when the lights go out for a few days.

NYC no lights Be prepared. It’s always better to be safe than sorry and as a nicotine user you know how irritated you can get when you can’t enjoy your ecigarette properly. It is always a good idea to keep a few weeks supply of cartridges and eliquid available just in case. They have a very long shelf life and you could also save some money if you buy your supplies in bulk. You may never know when roads become impracticable or you can’t get out of your property for some other reason.

It’s always recommended to have several chargers ready in case one gets broken and you shouldn’t only count on one or two batteries. Also you have to remember to always store your extra batteries fully charged in the same place with your other supplies in case of an emergency.

Always have a car adapter around even if you don’t use it that often. It might just put a smile on your face if the power is out for a few days and you have to make some emergency errands. Even if your car is broken, your neighbor might be happy to help you with a few charges for your device.

The portable charging case (or PCC) is an amazing accessory to have for such emergencies. It takes a few hours to get fully charged via USB and it can recharge your ecigarette batteries up to 10 times, depending on the model. You only have to remember to keep it fully charged and in a very accessible place. Remember those friends who told you it wasn’t such a good idea and you will never need it? Guess who is going to be laughing now while enjoying some good quality vaping.

Available online and in many camping stores, a solar powered USB charger might just be the best device out there for such days. As long as the sun is shining you’ll be able to recharge your batteries for weeks in a row.

A USB battery pack might also be an essential gadget in case of an emergency. You can find them online and they hold a pretty decent charge (some over 6000mAh). You can use them to recharge your phone, tablet, radio and ecigarette many times.

Also it’s always good to stock up on some disposable ecigarettes. They are not that expensive and they can deliver as many as 400 puffs. They are disposable and don’t need any assembling and might just be the perfect companion in case of a disaster.

If you have other ideas that might help your fellow vapers in case of blackouts, lets us know.

Former pack-a-day smoker, I discovered electronic cigarettes back in 2011. Since then vaping has slowly turned into my hobby and my full time job. I’ve tested hundreds of e-cigarettes and mods across the years and constantly used my knowledge and experience to help others make the switch. I’m passionate about technology, I enjoy reading and I love big flavorful clouds.
