    Everything was fine, until last night. I noticed the battery seems to take longer than usual to charge, instead of a green light appearing after about an hour of charging it stays red :(. This morning I tried to charge it again and I always get a green light. I take it out to check but its dead. All my batteries are dead. Im desperate. What do I do? :(

    I'm not sure what type of 510 you have but I run the 650 and 1000 mah fat batteries. On the Liberty Flights 650 batteries I need to take a paper clip and gently raise the center battery post before I put it on the charger or I experience the exact symptoms you describe. Worth a shot. Also try cleaning the contacts.

    Clean all the contacts and see if that helps. If not then it may be your charger has a problem

    Thanks for replies, guys! I have joye 510. I inspected the charger for any juice or dirt, cleaned it just in case, cleaned the battery, tried to charge it via usb, still the same. I think my charger is faulty. I called my supplier and he promised he will ship the new charger for free today! I also ordered an EGO as I'm sick of charging my 510 every two hours or less. At the moment, I connected my 510 atomizer to one of my old e-cig's battery. Its not amazing and they dont fit well together but I'm still able to get a few puffs out of it. So I'll just try not to smoke and wait till tommorow for a charger and ego.

    My chargers sometimes get spotty like that, I have to tighten it all of the way then loosen it and wiggle back and forth (looser and tighter) until the light turns red and then i tighten it all the way again. The light on the end of the batt should blink and the light on the charger stay red. The blinking batt was always my sign that it was working.

    Note to self: Order an extra battery charger.

    I always mean to do it, but this thread reminded me.

    Sorry you're having problems! Hope it comes really fast.

    Yeah the same thing happens to me chewy. Not sure why, contacts seem clean etc on both battery and charger.

    Try screwing it in as normal and turn it back slowly, hopefully the light will go red at some point.

    I had an eGo charger completely fall apart and become unusable. Fortunately at that time I also had a new complete kit I was taking to my daughter in a couple of weeks. So I ordered 2 chargers and grabbed the charger out of her kit and used it until the replacements came in. That left me with one spare around the house.

    In the world of vaping supplies it's best to go with the "one is none, 2 is one" saying.

    Just an FYI do not charge your 510 batteries on the ego charger. They put out more current than the small 510 battery can handle

    I called the supplier I ordered my kit from and he shipped the charger the same day, I got it this morning and it works, yay! It was not the wall charger, but the usb connector thing that was broken. I have no idea why that happened. Maybe there was a bit of liquid on the battery. Ill try to be more careful this time and order and extra one, just in case! I had to have an analog, so I had one yesterday and one this morning. It tasted absolutely disgusting and no throat hit at all, yuk! Glad to be back to vaping.

    Like I always say sometimes

    Always have back-ups and back-ups for your back-ups.

    That includes batteries, attys, cartos, chargers, and juice.

    My 510 fast charger just did the exact same thing! Light is constantly red and doesn't charge anything

    Did you happen to get it from LiteCig?

    Luckily I have a regular 510 charger, but it takes forever! Had to pull out some old Kr808s to fill in the times between charging
