It can be very frustrating when there seems to be issues with your device. Sometimes it could be something simple like running low on liquid, running out of battery charge, or simply burning out your atomizing device (cartomizer/tank/clearomizer). Having the power of knowledge is something that can save you time, money, energy, as well as prevent you from going back to smoking. Here are a few common problems that arise with devices that Vape Dojo provides.


Problem: I charged my battery and nothing happens! The button on my vape doesn't light up at all!

Answer: Click the battery button really quick five or six times. This will unlock the battery. Click fast like you are double-clicking a mouse. Click it like this to lock and unlock the battery. This is a good feature to have if you want to carry your vape in your pocket or purse and do not want it to activate unintentionally.

My battery light is on, and my clearomizer is screwed on, but there is no vape! 

This is most likely a center-pin issue. Usually this happens when the center pin connected to the battery, where the clearomizer/cartomizer/tank connects to the battery is recessed because of a previous attachment causing it to slightly collapse. This is something that happens to the best of us, and can easily be fixed. There are a few things you can do at this point. You can take a nail-file, the kind attached to a nail-clipper, and raise the center-pin gradually by the edges of it with the file. You may need to raise it by three or four different angles to evenly graduate the center pin back to it’s original spot. Make sure that you do not use too much force, because this may cause the pin to completely dislodge from the battery. If you are using mostly ego threaded devices such as the ego cartomizers or our clearomizers, you do not have to completely tighten them onto the battery for them to work. Over tightening can cause the pin to collapse again, depending on how loose the pin has become. Here is a good video made by someone else that shows the problem and the fix:

To prevent this issue, do not wrench down when you screw things onto your battery. Just do enough to make sure it makes contact.

My clearomizer is leaking juice from the bottom, what is going on, or is this just junk?
Clearomizers can have the tendency of leaking for a couple different reasons. If it is new, it is usually because it has been overfilled, or there is liquid in the center air-tube, and it is leaking from the battery connection. You can confirm it is this by trying to take a puff, and seeing if you can get a clear, clean hit or if it’s gurgling. There is an easy solution for this, for clearomizers. Simply blow through the cartomizer through the mouthpiece, with a tissue at the end to catch the liquid coming out of the air-tube. This may be more difficult if you are using a juice with a higher amount of vegetable glycerin because the liquid would be thicker.

My clearomizer is STILL leaking...I blew out all the fluid from the airhole, but liquid is acutally coming out from the side of the clearomizer where the metal meets the glass... It’s getting everywhere, I am wasting juice, and my pocket is full of juice. Do I have to throw this away?
This usually happens with the rebuildable clearomizer. What will happen is the bottom connection of the clearomizer is not completely screwed on to the body of the clearomizer. Just simply get a good grasp on the bottom, maybe with a little pair of pliers, and gently but firmly screw the body of the clearomizer on, making sure that it is completely mesh with the indentations of the screws correctly. Don’t overtighten!

There is still juice leaking, even though I tightened it completely on, and it is still coming from the side of the glass itself. What happened?
This is where the clearomizer may be too far gone. It may be because parts of the clearomizer were overtightened and subsequently cracked under pressure, might be because the clearomizer became too hot from constant repetitive vaping, or it might even be from shipping, falling, or some other type of trauma. There is not much you can do at this point, and it is up to your discretion if it’s worth taping up and letting the show go on, or if it is too much of a headache and not worth the time or energy.

I just received my cartomizer. I just filled it up, but now when I try to take a hit and fire the battery, I get no suction, and then all of a sudden I’ll get a surge and liquid will pop into my mouth! After that happened, I take a puff, and it goes from being completely clogged to giving little gurgles and I am getting little, if any vapor out of it. What’s going on?
What happened in this case is the cartomizer was overfilled, and the excess liquid is preventing it from functioning properly. Take the cartomizer off of the battery, and take a napkin/tissue and use your pinky finger to poke into the battery connection area of the cartomizer and dab the area. You will see when you take your pinky out that there will be liquid saturating the napkin. Use a dry part of the napkin, and with your pinky repeat the process. Do this until you see no more liquid on the napkin when you try to wipe it. Also you should clean the battery connection plate/center-pin of your battery with a q-tip, to wipe off extra juice. Now simply try to inhale through the cartomizer and check to see see if you receive a clear hit, without it being connected to the battery. If there is still an obstruction, then put the napkin on the end of the cartomizer, and gently blow through the cartomizer, and repeat the cleaning process. Repeat these instructions until you can get a clean, clear hit through your cartomizer.

When ever I hold down the middle button in order to take a hit it just blinks 10 times (I counted) then that’s it. When I plug it into the charger it is fully charged. Any help?

I got my ecig today I put it on to charge and the light stays green on charger and blue on the ecig but when I attach my cartridge nothing happens

March 12 2014 at 06:03 PM


My ego-t battery was working fine, then it ran out of charge after about a month and a half. Now it won’t charge and the blue light won’t turn on when i push the button. I’ve tried cleaning the connection ports, raising the battery connector, and different usb outlets. Any ideas?

this was super helpful it was the first problem, it seems like it should still charge even tho the battery is locked for hitting tho

I recently bought an Ego- CE4 and it worked fine until i dropped it and now the light doesn’t light up at all. If the battery is separated from the clearomizer then the blue light is permanently lit up until the button is pushed, then it turns off. I checked the wires and they appear to be connected to the right parts, but it’s just not working! Does anyone know what’s wrong?

April 10 2014 at 05:04 PM


This sight was so helpful! Thank you! I was just about to throw it away. Thank you!

So, the other day I bought the KangerTech Protank 3 and it worked for the first day. The next day I charged my battery and when I put my tank back on the battery it shut off. I pressed the button five or six times but it would not turn back on. Then I put it back on the charger and the light popped back on but turned off again when I attached my tank. I figured my battery was just broken so I went and bought another battery and it’s doing the same thing. What is wrong with my vape?
