The greatest thing about today’s vaping devices is that they’re generally reliable, satisfying and enjoyable to use. For the most part, all that you need to do is keep your device charged and refill your tank or cartridge when needed, and you’ll enjoy puff after puff of satisfying vapor.

The instruction manuals for today’s vaping devices, likewise, often seem to be written with the assumption that you’ll never experience a problem. The manual will tell you how to set the device up and use it, but when it comes to explaining how to troubleshoot issues, the instruction manual is either vague or doesn’t have any helpful information at all. That’s a big problem if you experience a problem with your device – and something will go wrong with just about every vaping device eventually if you use it long enough.

You can think of this article as the missing instruction manual for just about any vaping device. If your vape isn’t working as expected, it’s likely you’re experiencing one of four problems – and in this article, we’re going to explain how to fix all four of them.

Your Vape Isn’t Charging

When your vape pen won’t charge, you might be tempted to conclude that the battery no longer holds a charge and that it’s time to replace the device. The truth, though, is that the situation might not be quite so dire. In fact, there are several completely fixable reasons why your vaping device might not charge when it’s connected to a power source. Before you replace the device, follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem.

In some cases, when a vaping device isn’t charging, it actually is time to replace the device. If you’ve been using the device daily for several months and have noticed that the battery’s capacity has noticeably diminished, it’s possible that the device has reached the end of its life. A lithium ion battery typically lasts for around 300-500 charge cycles, which equates to a lifespan of around one year if you charge your device once or twice per day. If you have a device with a removable battery, you can replace the battery. If the battery is built in, you’ll need to replace the entire device.

Your Vape Isn’t Hitting

If nothing happens when you puff on your vape or press the fire button, it’s another case where you might think that it’s time to replace the device. Once again, though, it’s actually fairly easy in many cases to fix a vape that isn’t hitting. Here’s how to do it.

Your Vape Tastes Burnt

If you’re unhappy about the flavor quality when you vape, it’s probably because your device is producing a burnt flavor; that’s the most common flavor-related complaint among the vaping community. If your vape tastes burnt, there’s usually only one fix for that issue: You need to replace your coil, pod or cartridge. There are a few steps that you can take, however, to make your vape coils last longer before they begin to taste burnt.

Your Vape Isn’t Satisfying

The last vaping problem people commonly report is that their experience simply isn’t satisfying overall. If you’re not completely happy with your vaping experience and can’t quite identify the reason why, these suggestions may help you fix the problem.
