Vuse Alto not charging
Cause: Using a power source that is too powerful prevents charging
Fix: Charge using a laptop or charging brick!
“Yeah, OP figured it out. I was using an iPhone block and it kept just flashing. I switched the USB to be plugged into my MacBook and it immediately started charging. Feel like an idiot cuz I’ve been struggling with this for days”
“Thank you! I had the same problem. Grabbed a toothpick cleaned it popped it back on the charger and boom it works. This was driving me crazy.”
“I finally fixed the issue. I believe that the problem is caused from using too powerful of a charge. (Wall blocks). The devices aren’t supposed to be charged with that powerful of a voltage. Using a block and cause the bottom of your unit where the prongs are inserted to to form a layer of rust. If you take a tooth pick and lightly scrape the metal sensors inside it will remove the layer of rust making your connection stable.”

Vuse Alto pods won’t hit
Problem: No flavor or vapor coming from the pod
Fix: Squeeze or hit the base of the pod!
“Smack the bottom of pod on a table or something. Idk why it works it just works lol”
“I literally just squeezed the bottom of my pod and it started working”
“I just bit the bottom metal (not hard) but enough to leave a bite mark because I wasn’t able to squeeze hard enough. It worked!”
“I’ve been having this same exact problem and I just threw the pod against a hard surface a couple times and now it’s hitting.”

Vuse Alto pods taste burnt
Cause: Lack of air in pod prevents e-liquid soaking the wick, and vapor tastes burnt
Fix: A short, sharp blow into the pod mouthpiece, whilst covering the bottom hole!
“I have a simple solution to this problem that can potentially save you time and a few bucks. I think the issue is that as the juice gets used up, sometimes, it doesn’t get replaced by air due to the design of the pods. The solution is you take the pod out, cover the hole at the bottom of the pod with your finger and blow into the pod for a split second, thus physically putting air back into the pod. This solution is very fast and simple. I hope this helps someone!”
“I plugged my hole and then gave it a quick blow. By time I was done w that, my vape had wicked enough e-juice into it to get a decent hit!”
“God damn this worked magically. Got my first pod (after like 10 purchases) which tasted burnt right out the box and this did the trick!”
“Worked like magic, blew it then tapped the pod a bit sp that the air bubbles flot up the pod so that it doesnt pop and a little but of jucie came out the bottom when i tapped it but used a q-tip to clean it. worked like a charmmm”

Vuse Alto blinking light
Problem: Blinking light means battery won’t hit
Fix: Charge the device using a laptop or charging bank
“If you notice the white LED light flashing on your device, this could be due to a low battery, or a puff time-out. If it flashes 10 times, it is time to charge your device. If used continuously for more than 5 seconds, the LED on the device will flash 3 times and the device will cut off as a safety precaution.”
