    So I lost my instructions for my Smoktech 510 DC carto. :( I tried charging each of my batteries...the blue end blinked and blinked without stopping. Does this mean they're full? Anybody know about this? Thanks...

    ETA: Okay, so I tried it again, the blue LED light at the end blinked about 20 times and now is not lit, the little LED light on the charger itself (plugged into comp) is red...hopefully it's charging?

    Yep, red means charging. Remember not to use an ego charger on a 510, ego chargers put out too much power for the little 510 stick batteries.

    Also DO NOT hork down on the cartridges or charger it crushes the little rubber gasket under the center pin shorting the system



    Hope that helps

    Also...can you provide a link or pictures of the battery...is it an eGo type battery or a e-cig stick type battery?
    Something like this

    P.S. The tiny center pin on the e-cig batteries have the same "crush" problem...get something to pry that pin up then GENTLY tighten it on to the charger and the cartridges on...snug em down lightly...don't crank em down

    Thank you! Here is the one I'm using. :) I will check out that pin...I had it plugged in 7 hours overnight and the light is still red.

    If its not charging it could have died too, sometimes that style of battery does not last long at all.

    Well, the batteries are new. I just ordered a new charger. It's only a few bucks and perhaps it will help. Thanks, everyone!

    Shouldn't take that long, and it sounds like you're doing it right.
    COULD be the USB port you're using is underpowered?
    If you stick with 510's, you may want to get one of these, or what I really liked, was one of these (may seem expensive, but it's both parts in one).
