ADVANCED KITS & MOD's, product maintenance & trouble shooting guide:
5 clicks on the battery button to turn on an off the battery. While carrying your device around we advise turning it off to avoid the battery accidentally being activated and running down the battery life, burning your coil & liquid.
When the battery starts flashing it means it needs charging. When you plug the battery in to be charged the light on the charger will be red, once it turns green it means fully charged.
Do not over charge the battery. Charging via the mains wall socket usually takes between 1 – 2 hours, maybe longer if charging via a laptop or other device. Once green light shows, remove from charge. If you over charge it will reduce the life span of the battery.
Most batteries come part charged so you can vape immediately after purchase, please fully drain the battery on first use then put on charge until the light turns green.
Ensure your charging devices are compatible with our batteries. If the ampage is incorrect you can burn out your devices or may mean you do not get a full charge. We recommend using the mains wall method of charging as we cannot guarantee your USB device is compatible ampage with batteries. Laptop charging can only use USB 2 port. Do not use a USB 3 port as this will ruin your battery. If in doubt always use our compatible wall charger.
Important to check the wall charger adapter is compatible with our batteries. Just because the USB lead fits into the wall adapter doesn’t mean it’s compatible. If the ampage is wrong it can damage the device or not give a full charge. Do not use an iphone wall chargers. If in doubt please purchase our wall adapter. Refunds will not be given on batteries which haven’t used our charging devices.
When filling up a brand new tank with e-liquid please allow 5 minutes before vaping. This allows the liquid to soak in to avoid burning out the coil (the coil also known as the atomiser - is the heating element inside the tank that creates the vapour)
Do not over tighten the battery and tank. Finger tight only. Over tightening can damage the battery contact or ruin the thread.
Don’t vape on an empty tank. If you do the coil (atomizer) may burn out. When liquid isn’t visible in the tank, fill up immediately.
Do not over fill the tank, if you do you run the risk of getting some liquid in your mouth when you vape, while this isn’t dangerous to your health it can be an unpleasant taste. Also if you have leakage from the tank due to over filling, it can dribble onto the battery contact which will stop your device from working. If leakage or spillage happens, just use a cotton bud to clean out the battery contact and also the thread of the tank where the battery screws into. This should be done on a regular basis to maintain your vaping device efficiency.
Changing the tank / or coil within the tank – you know when this needs to change as the liquid can bubble within the tank but not produce vapour or the e-liquid taste changes. Similar to a burnt toast strange taste.
If the battery flashes but is fully charged. Make sure you clean the battery contact and bottom of the tank to ensure full battery contact is made. Also check the coil (atomizer) is screwed in correctly. Try changing to a new coil to rule out a faulty coil.
Maintaining your device. Every week, your battery and tank contact points need cleaning. Take a cotton bud and wipe around the battery contact and the thread of the tank.
If you wish to change flavor in your tank it is ok to add the new flavor to the tank. The old flavor may still be present temporarily until it burns out from the coils/wicks completely. Alternatively you can rinse out your tank with hot water and allow to dry out. Ensure you remove the coil before you do this. Another option is to purchase another tank so you can have different flavors in different tanks for ease of use.
If your tank is bubbling and you’re getting liquid into the mouth piece when vaping it most probably means your coil (atomizer) is on its way out and needs changing. Before changing the atomizer, check the battery is fully charged. Check the contacts between the battery and the tank are clean. If the problem still persists, change the atomizer. If the problem still persists it maybe a compatibility issue with the battery and the tank. Some dual coil tanks require a larger more powerful battery to perform optimally. If buying separate hardware pieces for your own existing items bought elsewhere, please check online or in store for product compatibility. Just because it’s the same size as your previous model and connects to the device doesn’t mean it is compatible.
