    Hey guys, new to this forum and new to vaping aswell. Just had a question that I can't really find a proper answer to anywhere else on the internet so I thought I'd ask here. I bought an Aegis Max 100w last week to stop smoking and until 2 days ago it was working great! However I was using the micro-usb port to charge from my phone charger as the guy in the store i bought it from said it would work the same as a dedicated battery charger, starting to think that is not the case. I accidentally left it on charge overnight before work, I didn't think much because the store said this mod has overcharge protection. Ever since then the battery has not been charging properly, or holding charge - usually draining within 10 or so minutes or a few puffs. Bought a dedicated charger today and still the same issue, 2 full batteries yet the mod is having the same problems, 10 or so minutes or a few puffs then flat. When i take the same fully charged batteries out and put them in the dedicated charger it still reads as full. Very confused and just wondering if I've fried my mod or something - hoping this is not the case. No response from the store either.

    Any input would be appreciated.
    Thanks heaps,

    A couple questions might help make things clearer:
    • What batteries are you using? (Brand and model)
    • What wattage are you vaping at?
    External chargers are generally better for replaceable batteries, but even so, a week's worth of onboard charging shouldn't have done the mod or battery any harm despite leaving it overnight. It sounds like something is wrong with the mod (unusual, since you've got a solid mod), although it's also possible your batteries aren't suitable for the way you're vaping. Unfortunately, many vape shop employees don't know much about batteries and they may have given you bad advice.

    Another possibility is much simpler than the others - dirty contacts in the mod. Take out the battery and use a cotton swab or tissue dampened with isopropyl alcohol or something along those lines to clean the places where the battery connects with the mod. Once you're sure everything's dry, put the battery back in and try again.

    Good luck, and let us know about the battery and wattage.

    Also, where are you purchasing your batteries from?
