How to Use the Veedverks Variable Voltage Vape Pen Battery
December 09, 2016
The Veedverks Variable Voltage (VV) Battery has a full array of functions, despite being simple in its design. You interact with the device and change its settings using its one input: the Touch Sensor. It is located on the end with the circular LED light and the Veedverks “V” logo. By touching a finger to the tip of the battery one to five times, you can perform a variety of functions. The number of taps and the colors indicated by the LED light can seem like a lot to remember at first, but after using the battery a couple times, you’ll find it’s a snap. This guide well help you become acquainted with your new VV Battery.
Both the Veedverks Starter Kit and the VV Battery standalone package include the following instructions/reference for battery operation:
Let’s take a closer look at each section.
By touching the Touch Sensor five times, you can toggle between OFF mode and READY mode. When changing from OFF to READY, the LED light will flash on. The color of the light will either be teal, blue, or purple, indicating the current voltage setting (explained under the Change Voltage section below). When changing from READY to OFF, the LED light will not flash.
The two modes are explained below:
- OFF means the unit is completely shut down, and nothing is receiving battery power. When the VV Battery is not being used, it should be kept in OFF mode.
- READY mode is really not much different than OFF mode, with one exception: The internal air pressure sensor is powered, ready, and waiting to detect when you draw (inhale) on the mouthpiece. Although the drain on the battery is negligible in READY mode, it should be switched to OFF to prevent accidentally activating the heating system.
Four taps on the Touch Sensor will send the device to PREHEAT mode. You can tell you are in preheat mode when you see the LED light cycling through all the colors of the rainbow. Veedverks brand oil does not require preheating, so this function is for when the VV Battery is used to heat thicker substances.
PREHEAT mode times out in 30 seconds. If you accidentally enter PREHEAT mode, you can exit by simply tapping once on the Touch Sensor or by drawing on the mouthpiece.
Three taps on the Touch Sensor will cycle the unit through the three voltage settings. The voltage settings are indicated by the teal, blue, and purple colors. The voltage levels are explained below:
- Teal indicates the lowest voltage, 2.4 volts. This will create a smaller vapor hit, but it delivers more flavor.
- Blue indicates medium voltage, or 3.2 volts. It provides a balanced hit to the user.
- Purple indicates the highest voltage level, 4.0 volts. It creates the most vapor, providing the user with the biggest hit.
At the highest voltage setting, three taps on the Touch Sensor will cycle the unit back to the lowest setting.
As noted in the Off/Ready section above, w hen changing from OFF mode to READY mode by tapping 5 times, the LED l ight will flash on. The color it flashes will either be teal, blue, or purple, indicating the current voltage setting.
Two taps on the Touch Sensor do nothing. Two shalt thou not tap, excepting that thou then proceed to three.
Check Charge Level
By touching the Touch Sensor one time (or simply holding your finger on it), you can tell if the VV Battery is in OFF mode or READY mode. If the LED light does nothing, the unit is OFF. If it lights up, the unit is in READY mode.
The color of the light indicates the charge level of the battery. Green indicates that the battery is fully charged. As the battery is depleted, the color changes from green to yellow, orange, and then red. The ideal time to recharge the unit is when it first turns from orange to red.
This chart indicates approximate numbers of draws that are remaining at a given battery charge and voltage setting. A higher voltage setting will obviously deplete the battery more quickly.Veedverks' innovative variable voltage CBD vape pen battery is the most versatile on the market, allowing you to change voltages and preheat thick oil

Editor s note: Especially in this still-new legal cannabis space, there s no shame in even the most basic questions. A lot of readers have reached out asking us how to use a vape pen, and so we tapped our Seattle-based vape critic Ben Livingston to pen an introductory how-to on vape pens, vaporizers and beyond.
How To Use a Vape Pen: step-by-step instructions
Here is the essential information on the best way to operate a fresh-out-of-the-box vaporizer — and how to use a vape pen properly so you don t wreck your new purchase:
Step 1. Plug it in
Vape pen batteries typically require several hours of charging before use. The moment you get it home, use the manufacturer-supplied charging apparatus to start refueling those lithium ion cells. Waiting for vape pen batteries to complete their initial charge is as disappointing as realizing the Christmas-morning Power Wheels toy takes 10 hours to charge, so plug them in early and often.
Step 2. Read the manual
I don t actually do this, but it frequently seems like a good idea. Well-designed products should provide intuitive functionality, but sometimes a pinch of preparation can save a cup of catastrophe down the road. At the very least, know whether the vape pen is designed for pre-filled disposable oil cartridges, flowers, oil and propylene-glycol mix, or unmixed oil typically called wax or shatter.
Most vape users run their paraphernalia without any herbs or oil for the first time, in hopes of burning off any factory flotsam that might otherwise enter the lungs when vaping. This doesn t ensure you won t inhale deleterious metals or other compounds, but it likely reduces that risk. Go outside and turn it on the highest setting for 30 to 90 seconds.

4. Load the tank
Pre-filled cartridges are simply attached to the battery. Unmixed oil — wax, shatter, etc — is often dabbed in small amounts directly onto the atomizer or surrounding wick. Oil mix is typically loaded into a tank that wicks or drips onto the atomizer. Ground flowers sit directly on the atomizer or inside a metal chamber heated by it.
Most vape pens heat up automatically when the user inhales, while others turn on with a push button. A light will indicate that the unit is on. Put the mouthpiece to your lips and draw in a breath of atomized cannabis oil. Pull in some clear air at the end of the puff to push all those pot particles into the lungs. Hold it for a few seconds, but don t be that stoner trying to hold your hit indefinitely — it makes everybody dizzy, not just you.
6. Check your head
Most vape pens use cannabis oil, which is a highly-concentrated form of the flower. Go easy on that thing; it s pot paraphernalia not an oral fixation pacifier. Take a minute to get your bearings and check your gauges before tapping your toker again. The entire universe awaits your exploration in the space between vape pen puffs. Breathe deep and embrace this amazing world.How to use a vape pen: Tips on getting the most out of a marijuana vaporizer Share this: Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new ]]>
