    Hello

    I have a Wismec RX Gen3 vape for almost 2,5 years but I hadn't used them for more than 1 year. Today I tried to charge it and turn on but it always show up the "battery check" issue on the screen.

    I went to a vape shop to check the battery life, and they said it was working properly. Does anyone have an idea of what can I try here?

    Tks in advance

    Lay the mod down on a solid flat surface. Put on safety glasses. Get a big hammer and hit the mod really hard between 1 and 5 times. Get a broom and dust pan to pick up debris. Empty dust pan in the trash bin. Then remove your credit card from your wallet. Get on the internet to your favorite vape supplier and buy a mod worth having. Easy peasy without being sleazy.

    If you haven't already done so, wipe the battery contacts clean with a bit of alcohol, see if that helps. Often times it's just the tiny screws on the battery door next to the hinge and battery contacts that have gotten too loose so, carefully try to re-tighten them without overtigthening.

    EDIT: Also, if you left the batteries in the mod while the mod was held in storage for a year, then get new batteries. Use an external charger to charge your batteries. Do NOT store your batteries inside the mod for a long period so always remember to remove them each time when you're not going to use the mod for some time. (Don't wait till later, as you might eventually forget that they are still in there.)

    Charging the batteries internally via the USB port in this mod can actually be dangerous with this mod if you keep doing it repeatedly, as this mod doesn't do balanced charging. So repeatedly doing it causes the imbalance to grow worse each time. That is, until finally you use an external charger to charge all of them fully, which will re-balance them.

    Have you checked the batteries in a charger or another device?
    Clean the battery contacts, and if that doesn't work try stripping the mod down and reassembling it.

    I can't help but the gen3 was the worst mod I ever got, I still use it until it's dead, I have to tape the battery door up with gorilla tape so just charging with usb now, when it dies I'm going to smash it with a big hammer :D

    Hello @tulio.vicentini, it's time to invest in a new mod and a decent external battery charger.

    What tank or atomiser are you using?
