An unprotected battery is one which does not contain the protections built into it that protected batteries do. Because of the lack of these protections, they can potentially have more capacity (mAh) and current capability (amp output) than a protected battery might have. However, there is a slightly higher danger of over heating, short circuiting, or over discharging unprotected batteries.
Any battery should be treated with respect and care should always be taken to ensure that your batteries remain healthy and serviceable.
Currently located in Sydney, Australia, I have been vaping since 2009 and became active in the e-cigarette industry in late 2015. Since then I’ve had the pleasure of visiting over 700 shops in 6 countries.
