    I bought a TECC arc slim 2 months ago, I haven’t had any problems with it except now. All of a sudden, the cig just shut off, and it only works when it’s plugged in, I’ve tried using different USB cables, it’s definitely turned on. And I cannot find a solution on the internet.

    From the warranty section on your device: The batteries and tanks contained in each kit have a 28-day parts warranty.
    Looks like you got 30 days beyond without trouble.

    But I’ve had no trouble with it before, no dropping it, not exposing it to freezing or very hot temps etc

    Batteries can die and not take a charge

    it works when it’s charging, but it says full battery when it’s charging, as soon as I take it off charge, it just shuts off.

    You are probably able to vape off the charger, but not the battery.

    I had a different TECC one before, worked perfect for well over a year, I just can’t seem to find the cause or a solution.

    It pretty much has to be the internal battery

    Is there anyway I can fix it without taking it apart? Or will the place I got it from repair it/replace it?

    If you understand the wiring and circuitry.

    When I quit cigs, I told myself to spend the same amount, initially, so long as I don't smoke. I followed a lot of discussions and realized that some manufacturers are looking for a fast buck.

    Also, they say to have a back-up and a back-up for the back-up. That way, you have something until you get a new mod. Whenever I bought a mod, I bought better than what I had...because I learned.

    I don't mind learning.

    I would advice buying an external battery device.

    It's your battery and frankly, I think you got lucky with the first one (unless you were using it less, and dual using cigarettes and etc.) Batteries tend to only hold a charge for a specified period of time, and the 28 day warranty tells you something-- this is designed more as a disposable device, not something you can use for years at a stretch.

    It may be possible to replace the battery, but really I'd leave that to someone who knows what they are doing. I'm doubtful the company will replace/warranty without charge, and honestly, you can do much better in a device.

    I agree with Letitia's suggestion, look for a small, external battery mod where you can remove the battery and recharge it, and then replace the batteries when they start to wear out. I might suggest a pico 25 mod, they currently have a newest one that uses a single 18650 battery and the size is nice, it's a very portable unit, and while it isn't "stick style" it's really a comfortable form factor in the hand. There are also lots of other nice options, but the pico is a good fit for many who are looking for a small, portable device. I might suggest buying the mod and the tank separately, as the "kit" has a Melo III tank, which isn't really so MTL in my opinion. Good MTL tanks include the Nautilus 2, or any tank that takes the Joytech CLR 1.0 ohm coils (say, the Tron-S, the Ego One Mega V2, etc.) but using those coils, not the proprietary coils that come with it. The CLR coils get great coil life and flavor, and are very easy to rebuild and rewick as well, if you get to that point.

    Good luck, I'd suggest, really, moving up to a more reliable device, that has more options for resistance of coils, airflow, variable wattage, etc.
