    Default Charging your Ego Twist

    Just got my Ego Twist and I love it, but I'm wondering, is it okay to leave it on the charger all night? I'm not sure if these chargers will overcharge the battery or not...

    There should be a built in protection, but I have heard of some rare instances where a battery will overheat and have to be tossed, I would just charge it until it's done and the light is green. Better safe than sorry :-)

    While it probably would turn out ok, it's never a good idea to leave our batteries not being watched over and plugged in overnight.

    Do you have to wait for an eGo-c Twist battery to be completely drained before charging? or can I just charge anytime?

    Isn't it Li-ion? Those are like the NEWER cell phone batteries, no "memory", so, as with my SI X2's, I charge them whenever I've vaped them awhile. No problem.

    I've accidentally left it charging overnight with no issue but I wouldn't make a habit of it. It's supposed to stop charging when it turns green but if something were to malfunction... who knows

    It's not a good habit to get into. If it happens every once in awhile it's no big deal. I don't even know how many times I've fallen asleep while batteries are charging or just plain forgot about them.

    Basic to Advanced Battery Information from Battery University

    all you want to know about Li bats...

    I leave mine overnight sometimes--I try to pop them off when green. If it blows up it's on you . It won't hurt them it's just basic safety issue...
