    I cannot get this thing to screw in to charge properly. Is it the battery, should I replace it?

    What kind of battery are you using and what kind of charger are you trying to charge it with ?

    Could be the battery, could be the charger, or it could be the threading on either. What style battery do you have and what type of tank or topper do you use on it? Are you having problems with the tanks not threading properly onto the battery? I think a pic might help in this situation.

    EDIT: Ace beat me to it... :p

    That's probably because you are trying to screw it onto the wrong charger, which is a dangerous thing to do with a lithium battery.

    Ego type battery and an Ego style charger, so it looks to me like it should work. How are your inner threads on the battery? I wonder if the 510 threads are stripped and not threading into the charger.

    It is the battery. Have not found a fix for my 2 eGo-T's that did that. get a good brand eGo battery and that doesn't happen.

    throw it wayar before the bad threads ruin your tanks and charger threads, I had a similar incident.

    I noticed a common theme , buy a charger that is spring loaded so you dont find yourself cranking down on it when the light doesn't flash red due to ejuice between the contact surfaces. Clean it, clean both! The spring loaded kinds have a nice center button with a good spring to add the force between the contact surfaces. You prolly stripped your threads, it doesnt have to be tight like a pipe.

    Or buy a multi charger spring loaded:

    I took it to the smoke shop and he said it was the threads. I traded it for a new Itazte and love it!
