    Default Fairly new 18650 battery no longer working.

    Bought a set of 2 of these Panasonic CGR18650 3.7v batteries and I have been using them for about three weeks. Had a fully charged one and one in my vamo, got a low v signal and swapped batteries, putting the dead battery on the charger. Well when it was charged I put it back in my vamo and it will not fire up. It will fire up however with the other battery. And the charger gives me a fully charged signal. Any ideas?

    Without a multimeter to check the voltage, we are shooting blind here.

    My old sig used to say A vaper without a multimeter is like a Dr without a stethoscope, can't diagnose nothing

    is it a button top or flat top, some devices are picky on what you can use on them, also you need to do some research and make sure that the battery you bought is good for the vamo, I do not own a vamo nor will I ever (just the looks of it), but always do the research of the stuff you buy to make sure its legit and will work

    Vamo can run button top or flat top

    Look down inside and see if pin is pushed in (some people have reported they get loose)

    You can run the original if ya want, a wrench is not a diagnostic tool, it's a fixing tool

    Flat top batteries. It is definitely the Vamo's fault. Have been having connection issues all day.


    Thanks for the advice on picking up a multimeter switched I will get one very soon

    IMHO it's the cheapest invetsment a vaper can make, and it will save $$$ in the long run.
