    Default Itaste VV Not Working

    Hello all,

    Newbie (obviously...) here.

    In August, I purchased an iTaste VV from UK eCig Store. It has served me well since then, but I left it to charge last night, and now it's refusing to turn on. I've tried putting it back on charge, pressed the 'on' button over and over, and there's not been a single flicker of life. It is, apparently, an ex-iTaste. It has ceased to be.

    Now, I was hoping I could call on your collective wisdom and see whether this was a common problem that could be rectified with some button bashing or general fiddling - or, indeed, you think it's possible to dispatch it back to its point of purchase and have them repair it (I do believe I've surpassed the warranty dates, however).

    Whaddya think, guys?

    how many over and over...do you do any 3 click rapid presses?

    ON/OFF Battery Switch:
    Quickly clicking three times will power the device on or off. Once the device is on, holding down the button will activate the battery. This safety feature prevents the atomizer from turning on while it's in your pocket or bag, as well as inadvertent settings changes.
    Does it light up when charging with the USB cord thru the passthru port?

    Hi WarHawk,

    Thanks for your speedy response.

    Yes, I've tried the usual 'turn on' routine (ooh err, etc.), and I've tried plugging it in. Alas, nothing.

    "Applied science" and give it a gentle but firm whack?

    I'm Googling

    Do you have a clearmizer on it when you try it?

    Does the end where the charge plug go feel loose or wobbly (as in maybe the wire broke and the battery is drained and NOT re-charging)

    Have you tried a 10 second button hold?

    how long have you had it?

    Good luck.

    It's an expensive battery... What a shame.

    Have you had any other Innokin products before this one? Have you had experience with any of their stuff crapping out or is this an anomaly?

    Anybody else? I'm about to order the iTaste VV because I have had great luck with the Innokin LEO. I'm just a sucker for that design! They are a little steep (heh heh) in price.
