Today, the vape industry is booming. More individuals are switching to vaping because vape devices do not contain the same dangerous chemicals that are found in regular cigarettes. What’s more, vaporizers help to eliminate the dangers of secondhand smoke, making them much safer to use around other people. In this post, you will learn more about vape pens as well as what you can do if you encounter a non-charging battery. Let’s find out more!
What do Vape Pens Look Like?
Vape pens are stylized, thin, and long tubes that look like fancy pens. These vaping devices come in a great array of features, styles, and colors. Vape pens are extremely portable because tiny versions are widely available. Of course, you can find larger vape pens and they offer more powerful options. Generally speaking, the sky is the limit.
Parts of a Vape Pen
Below is a quick look at the core components of a vape pen:
- Batteries: Vape pens are powered by strong lithium-ion batteries. These rechargeable batteries are designed to power the heating element. Depending on how much you vape, the battery may or may not last all day. Hence, it is a good idea to bring a spare battery along with you wherever you go.
- Charger: Every vape pen comes with a charger. It has an indicator that lights up when it is fully charged. Vape chargers and phone chargers work in the same way. Chargers also tend to be screwed right onto the end of your vape pen.
- Sensors: Vape pens can turn on automatically (when you inhale) or be activated via the push of a button (this activates the atomizer as well).
- Atomizer: It is a small heating element located inside your vape pen. They convert liquid e-juices into airborne droplets for inhalation.
How to Troubleshoot a Non-Charging Vape Pen Battery
Let’s say that you are using a USB charging device to charge your vape pen battery. If all goes well, the USB light should change from red to green (the green light indicates that your battery is fully charged). In some cases, the battery will not charge or hit even when the cartridge is screwed in.
You may notice that the LED light at the end of the battery is still lighting up during a draw. While it tells you that the battery has been activated, power is still not transferred back to the cartridge. This is actually one of the most common reasons for a battery to stop working. Don’t worry. Your cartridge and battery are not defective.
If you are experiencing an issue like the above, you may need to adjust the connection plate. The plate is usually located inside the 510 thread. It is designed to activate your vape cartridge and allow your charger to transfer power back to the vape pen battery. Now, gently pry up the connection plate (with a paperclip) and carefully move it toward the middle. The connection point should start to raise up. Once you screw on your cartridge again, you should have a good connection, and your battery should be working again. Yes, it is a super easy fix!
