    I have a couple of batteries that have been used for 2 days only.
    They now won't charge. When I plug them into the charger they just blink 3 times.
    Please help!:confused:

    After they blink three times do you continue the charge?

    I'm having the same problem with my first 2 e-cigs. I plug them in and it blinks 3 times. I left them over night to charge, but this morning, no vapor! I can't imagine both are broken. Am I doing something wrong?

    Send whoever you bought them from an e.mail explaining this, they sound like they are faulty, supplier should replace them for you.

    Try different charger if you have one.

    I got the same problem with M401/402 batteries.
    Battery blinks when screwed in the charger receptacle but the light on the charger won't turn red but stay green. I tried all my m1/2 batteries and results are the same which makes believe that charger receptacle is not good anymore.

    Luckily I have another charger (has 2 complete sets) and this one has no problems.

    cebu4u,

    I have a good news - it is possible to resuscitate the charger!

    After examining my charger's receptacle I found that it has some very minute dirt particles on the bottom center, mind you I was using the magnifier. So I scrape the bottom with the infamous straitened paper clip and yeah, I am using that "defective" charger as I type.

    The scrapping restored electrical contact between charger's receptacle and battery.

    Yury
