    Hello to all of you my fellows and fellas. I'm new here becuase my friend told me to join this forum. I'm also new to vaping. I get my vape before tow days and it is a chinese one named Jomotech arrow tc80. I have a question about charging, I get a usb charger included but no wall adapter and now I'm concerned if I can use my wall adapter 5V-1A. The battery of my device is 2200mAh and runs at max 80W. In the user manual it is advised to use the included usb charger or a charger that could at least pass through 2A. So is it ok to use my own wall adapter 5V-1A or should I use something else?

    Thank you all in advance.

    Yes you can use a charger (i'm guessing your device has an internal battery since you didn't speak about external ones) as long as it's a 5v 1Amp one, some might say it's 2 amps compatible but in the long run i'd say 1 amp is safer.

    Just don't use a computer usb port to charge it, that's a bad idea.

    The charger for your battery device is actually inside the mod itself. The USB cord is just a connector to an energy source. A good AC/DC wall wort would be a good investment if you don't have one.

    I wouldn't connect the USB cord to a computer USB port for charging purposes, because should something short out not only will the mod and cord be fried but so might the computer.

    Never charge over night or when unattended by you. The reason why is what happened below:

    Yes, the amount of "charge" pulled from the wall wart is dependent on your device, not how much power the wall wart can put out. It's not going to "take" more than it is capable of, although yes like everyone says don't use a computer.

    If you are using a power source LESS than what is designed for the mod it should still charge up, just more slowly, I would think. But, that's not going to harm the mod either.

    As @QcVaper stated I wouldn't use anything larger than 5v 1amp for charging a battery in a mod.
    The charging circuit inside the mod should pull no more power than it needs but limiting it at the source is an added layer of safety, and slower charging prolongs the overall life of your battery as well.

    Welcome to the forum.

    5v 1.0a is fine.

    I use a 5v 2.0 for my big equipment.

    All e-cigarettes are from China. (more or less).
    Jomotech are copies of another product of one of the Chinese brands.

    That's just for info.

    Personally, I would probably avoid Jomotech as I don't expect the replacement coils are as cheap as the other brand coils if you can order from China. They might be cheaper on Amazon or eBay than Kanger or Eleaf... but I buy the 'top' brands coils direct from China. For me, as someone who doesn't use lots of coils (I rebuild and use RDAs) it's probably only $50 a year saving. For someone who uses a lot of coils, buying direct can save a lot of money.

    A Jomotech 'kit' from China is probably $25-$40. You probably paid very little more on a 'famous' multi-product website I'm guessing.

    Overall, I expect you did OK! Enjoy. :)

    This might be a poor translation from Chinese, but...
    Maybe they meant, " If you vape while charging at high power (over 60W), called pass through, you should use a 2A source." I've seen 2 mods that couldn't support themselves in pass thru, both melted the female usb port.

    The other translation is, "Yes, you could use any usb power, but we prefer you make us richer and buy ours."

    But for charging? Most any would work. Of course, a .5A will take a while.

    Every few charges, feel the plug and mod. It should never feel hot. Actually, this goes for most cables and cords.

    Welcome, and vape on...

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    I would contact the distributor or manufacturer and ask the question(s). Better safe than sorry.
