Vape Safe 2 fuse for battery safety
Item #: 0056
The VapeSafe2 is the newest version of the VapeSafe which uses an automatic resettable fuse, so the VapeSafe2 has the ability to "trip" a number of times without replacement. Just like the original VapeSafe1, the VapeSafe2 protects against shorts and other conditions which draw an unsafe amount of current from the batteries.
Lithium ion batteries, while generally described as "safe," have been known to vent hot gasses and in some cases, explode. The leading cause of a venting battery is a hard short. The Vape Safe is a mechanical fuse that trips if it senses a short in the mod by shutting down the battery. The Vape Safe can also help protect variable voltage circuitry, hot springs and other circuitry inside your mod that can be damaged in the case of a hard short.
◾Protects against hard shorts in 3.7V single battery devices as well as 6V-7.4V stacked battery devices.
◾Fits in nearly any 16/18 series battery mod.
◾Protects batteries during charging
◾Prevents Hot Springs from collapsing
◾Protects variable voltage and other circuitry
The PTC fuse used in the VapeSafe2 is rated for a hold current of 3.5 A, which means that it can carry a continuous current of 3.5 A safely without tripping which allows use with low resistant atomizers and dual coil cartomizers. It's trip current is rated at 6A, which means that if a current between 2.5 and 6 amps is passed through the VapeSafe2, it will trip within 5-10 seconds depending on the amount of current passing through it.

Does The Vape Safe make a Mod Absolutely, 100% Safe? The answer is no. No one safety feature alone can guarantee the battery will not fail thermally. When properly used, The Vape Safe can help to prevent potential thermal reaction from occurring in lithium ion batteries. It does not mean "absolutely safe," but in most situations the Vape Safe fuse will stop a hard short, and it does provide a measure of safety when used with lithium ion cells. When used in combination with mods that already have safety features built in, you are exponentially increasing the likelihood that thermal battery failure will not occur.
