    Default Pilot battery blinks 3 times?

    Hi everyone, I wonder if you can help me please?

    Normally my Pilot battery LED lights have only blinked in two ways: 8 blinks when they need charging, and 5 blinks when they're loaded into the charger.

    One of my batteries is now behaving strangely: it blinks 3 times if I touch it - attached to nothing, 3 times if I try to attach it to the charger or the atomizer, although once attached to the charger it blinks 5 times as usual. It appears to be fully charged as the charger light is green, but when I blow or suck on it, although the LED lights up, it stays lit for longer than it should and doesn't fire up the atomizer at all.

    I think it's dead - but I've never had this 3-flash before. Does this mean something to anyone? Is there anything I can do to make it revert to normal? Or has it had it?

    Thanks for any en-light -enment

    Do you drip?

    Regardless, my EVO (same model) has done this exact same thing. I let the battery drain for a few days and it worked.

    Then it didn't.

    And now it does. LOL.

    So that's my suggestion.

    Thanks Slea - No I don't drip - at least only very rarely. But I will persist with the battery. I got a few puffs out of it yesterday, but now it's not playing again
