Your Vape Light Isn't Working? Try These Tips

February 10, 2022

Many of today’s vapes are fitted with LED lights that let you know how your device is doing. All that blinking, flashing and pulsing is your vape’s way of talking to you (like saying “Hey boss, we need to talk.”). 

However, these lights can malfunction or even conk out, leading to miscommunication issues in your good relationship with your device. 

If this ever happens to your vape’s LED lights, there’s no need to kick up a fuss. It might not be a huge issue, and there might be an easy solution to that problem.

Check your vape’s batteries

Various batteries lie on a table, in a vape and in a charger.

Lack of power can cause your vape’s lights to act up.

It might come as a surprise to find out that when your vape is low on battery, its lights might make it appear as though the device is malfunctioning. The first time this happens can be nerve-wracking, and it’s something that even experienced vapers have been through.  

So, the first thing you should do is check the device to see how much power it has left. If it’s nearly drained, just connect it to its charger, and it’ll return to its proper display condition after a little time.  

Another factor that can cause your device’s LED lights to appear defective is loose batteries. Take a look at your device’s internals and see if the batteries are in their proper place, and if the lock of the battery chamber is properly latched.  

Batteries lose their ability to hold a charge over time, so you may also have old batteries to blame for your malfunctioning lights. If this is the case, swapping them out for a fresh set will let your vape work the way it should.

Check your terminals for any dirt or gunk

Dirty or blocked terminals are a common cause of malfunctioning LEDs. 

It’s a fact that e-juice can sometimes seep into the battery chamber, especially if you have a leaky tank or tend to overfill your vape. When this happens, it causes a buildup of residue that often ends up obstructing the circuit, and makes the device and its lights malfunction.  

To avoid this, make it a habit to always check for dirt and residue on the pin (where the atomizer connects to the vape) and battery terminals. If you find some, simply wipe away the dirt using a soft cloth and your device will be revitalized just like that.  

Try not to use tissue or thick-fibre cloth, as these may leave their own remnants that could cause circuit trouble.

Check your device’s components and their connections

Loose connections could cause misleading LED lights.

Many of today’s vape devices come with built-in safety features that keep you from using the device if any of its components are loose or dislodged. However, these fail-safes can also prevent the device’s LED lights from turning back on.  

Because of this, you should carefully check your device to see if there are any parts aren’t properly connected. Once everything is secured, the LEDs should function normally.

Get an intuitive device that offers a Super Smooth user experience

The RELX Infinity line can make switching to vape easier. 

Sometimes the best way to avoid problems is to get a shiok device that isn't prone to issues, like RELX’s Infinity and Essential lines.  

Unlike open-pod systems, RELX devices don’t need to be customised, as they are already built to last. While you can’t swap out most of the components, your RELX won’t be prone to experiencing the same issues as mods and open-pod devices (and it will work so well that you won’t even be tempted to tinker with it).  

Not only that, but RELX devices are also intuitive and easy to use, all thanks to their cutting-edge features. Designed to give you a Super Smooth experience, these include the dual charging capability, a patented Leak-Resistant Maze system, and a Smart Pace Vibration Alert.
