Why do you guys re-wrap your batteries?
I don't see the point. Unless the original wrap became damaged.

I re-wrap them when the wrapper becomes damaged. Some people like to re-wrap them for a personal touch.

After successfully ignoring Google, FAQ's, the board search and leaving a undecipherable post in the wrong sub-forum don't expect an intelligent reply.

While I have no doubts some do it just for looks, customization, or preference, damaged wraps are probably the main reason most people re-wrap their batts. When you remove the factory wrap it helps to label them with the brand and such if you have multiple brands of batteries.

If for no other reason, keep some extra wraps on hand in case one of your batteries gets a tear in the wrapper so you can safely fix it and keep using the battery. And if you wanna do some fancy stuff while you're at it, go for it! lol

I've never had a damaged wrap in over a year of vaping.
I dunno. Maybe next year :)

I've had a few damaged on arrival wrappers and once I dropped a cell against my vape stand, making a small cut in the wrapper.

One thing I've noticed, is that almost all of the heat shrink tubing sold here feels more protective than most stock wrappers.
Woah, mama!

Me too. Had a damaged wrapper on delivery and a few damaged from drops and general usage. Need good wrap on non-insulated switches like SMPL. I ended up re-wrapping all my vape batts to identify model, pairing, IR, and date. Permanent markers are not permanent on top of wraps but are permanent under wraps. All my cells had proper looking OEM stamps on the metal supporting my belief they aren't counterfeit.

I tried this with 80gsm paper under the wrap, the cells wouldn't fit in my nemesis and a couple of the smpls. Ended up taking it off and using just bare wrap. If I could get thinner paper I might do it again, but don't think I can be arsed. I need my cells to fit every mod I have.




Look for 50 gsm or 20lb paper mate.

I've used the thinnest wrapping paper I had (psychedelic as fuck too) and it still makes them a tight fit in mechs. Having said that by the time my batteries need resleeving (other than an accident I'm careful enough with them the sleeves last) I consider them too old for mech use so they are relegated to VW boxes only.

You will, they wear out no matter how careful you are. In fact I bet you already have (your comment written back in january) :) Am I right? :P

I've just rewrapped my oldest pairs (2x25r's and 2xVTC4's), both were 20 months old (Jan 2015,), the Samsung wraps are weaker, they had split, neither of the VTC4's though had rips in them but there was slight damage on the top rim.
I'm not risking it turning into even the smallest of holes the next time or 20 :P I put them in a device when sleeves cost pennies, literally.

those 4 batteries may sound "old" now but I look after my batteries, never over drain, let rest before and after charging and are part of 18 others that I constantly rotate in use, so they are working as good almost, (almost), as new, they still charge up to 4.2 volts just drain a little sooner than when I first bought them.
