    So I was just vaping on an ego spinner when the next time I pressed the button to take a hit, the button stayed on continually firing. I took off the atty, and tried to turn the battery off 5 clicks. It took a couple tries to get it to turn off. Then a few minutes later while wondering why some batteries do this after a while, I went to see if it was dead or what so I went to give it 5 clicks again to turn it back on, then nothing, once again, nothing, then one more time and it came on. It then fired seemingly normally for 3 presses.

    What causes this to happen? Usually when I have any questions I simply don't bother with that particular battery anymore because I don't know enough about batteries to risk anything. But this has happened before so Id like to know if anyone knows what goes wrong???

    Have you charged it? Mine does funny stuff when it's almost dead.

    The fire button on a battery get used hundreds of times a day. They are cheap switches that have a limited life span, so they fail.

    That's true, can happen even when it hasn't been used that much. Im curious whats taking place inside the battery. The button seemed to have gotten stuck but I wonder why the on/ off also didnt function properly.

    Time to get a new one, or upgrade. I had one do that if I had not caught it and removed the atty it would have gone till the atty burned out or gone thermal.

    It could also be that "stuff" from your pocket and such has worked its way into the button and is jamming the switch.
    I found dog hair INSIDE a blackberry one time. No telling how some stuff gets where you find it.

    A little eliquid that finds a way around/behind the firing button could make it stick. If the batteries are old and/or are becoming unreliable and possibly dangerous, it's time to replace them.

    I have one that does that every now and then. If I clean it good with the 510 thread well area and around the seems to work fine for awhile (several weeks)....then it does it again and I clean it again. I have no idea why it happens.
