Ego C twist blinking light issue
My second ego c twist seems to be giving some issues after i charged it at night and wanted to use it this morning.
The button light keeps flashing when i switch it on.Still happens when i try to push up the center pin a little in case i screwed it on too hard when charging.Also,with or without a carto the light still keeps flashing..any ideas?
Hmm... Base on what you say it could mean that the twist have shorted out.
Have you try plug in back to the charger and see if it still charge?
The battery is probably gone. Or the wires inside has dislodged.
Is there any cause for this because i only charged this like 2x ?

Might want to use a pin ..... the centre part of the battery.
Just to lift it up a bit. This will allow the centre part to connect with the charger.
Twist the battery into the charger slowly until you see the charger light change to red.
The let it charge.
eGo C-Twist white light will blink many times when it's flat.
Good luck !
I try to not over tighten the battery onto anything.
As far as batteries go, the center post inside the threads is postive and the threads provide the negative contact. I have had the wire on the inside of the battery that connects to the positive post come disconnected before. You can use a voltmeter to check for this issue.

Seem to be a common problem. Anybody take it apart yet?
From what i know, There are two possibilities. The battery inside of the ego c is faulty or the ego has shorted out . Want to see whats inside of the ego? Take a look at this video
Bad factory soldiering. The heat from charging may have dislodged it or some user actions like attaching the atties/cartos too tightly, dropping and knocking during shipping. Too much heat from atties/cartos might damage the chip and button inside also. Ask for an exchange if it is possible. Not wise to use it unless you are confident of opening it up and fix it.
