    Default Is my 510 battery dead?

    Hi, I just plugged in my 510 battery after draining it happily for the last several hours and instead of the usual flashing light, nothing. The indicator did turn red though...Not that I could do anything about it, but do you suppose it died?

    How long have you had it?

    Clean the threads on the atty and clean the threads on the charger. Make sure you don't overtighten the batt.

    Regards,
    Tom

    Just a thought, but the light on one of my 510 batts doesn't light up at all, and it still works as intended. It's been functioning like that since the day I got it.

    I've only had it for less than a week but I've heard so many mixed reviews about the 510 battery that I'm a little paranoid about it. (o.k. a lot paranoid) Thanks for the good maintenance recommendations too.

    Just make sure to always have a spare battery if at all possible (and spare atty too of course !)

    The charger light is suppose to be red when you plug it in. Its ok If the e-cig doesn't blink when you plug it in.

    Usually, when the light does NOT blink, it means you have run the charge all the way down. If charging light stays red, then green, you are good to go.
