How to know if your wax pen battery is broken


how to know if your wax pen battery is broken


There are several reasons why your dab pens may not be working properly.

Some of these causes are easy fixes, such as oil setting and getting stuck in your cartridge.

Others are more technical, like a battery, atomizer, or coil issue. Most of the time, your dab pen isn’t broken. 

More often than not, once you identify the issue with your vape pen, you’ll be able to troubleshoot.

You can’t repaira dab pen if you don’t know what’s wrong. While there are many reasons a vape may not work after charging, here are a few of the most common: 

1. The battery is dead: This is especially common in older vape pens. Older batteries may struggle to hold onto a charge, and eventually, they’ll give up the ghost.

2. spotted with residue: Concentrates are thick, sticky substances. If you aren’t cleaning out your device’s chamber after use, you run the risk of waxy residue building up. This can result in a clog.

3. The atomizer is malfunctioning: Your vape pen’s atomizer is responsible for turning the oil or e-liquid into vapor. An atomizer that’s been overtightened, or one that’s shorting out, isn’t going to do its job.

4. The charger is broken: Your vape’s battery may not be the source of the problem. Chargers can stop working too.


Before troubleshooting wax pen battery issues, it’s important to know what kind of battery your dab pen uses.

If your device has a pull-to-draw battery, the battery is always “on.” Pull-to-draw batteries remain “on” until they die, and you recharge it using its USB port.

If you’re using your wax pen’s battery correctly but it’s not working, inspect the battery’s contact point for damage or residue.

If it seems clogged, clean it with rubbing alcohol and let it dry before reconnecting it to the cart.



Check Your Wax Pen Charger

If the charger is working properly, and see if the LED light turns on.

If the battery charges, it indicates that it got discharged or drained.

However, if the charging indicator refuses to turn on, you should consider finding a replacement.

Another approach to determining if your battery is faulty is to remove and inspect it for any signs of leakage, damage, and irregularities.

Does it look swollen? Most likely, it’s defective, and you need to replace it.


Clean the battery and connections: The battery and connections of your vaporizer should be kept clean to ensure proper functioning. 

Use a dry cloth to wipe down the battery and connections, paying special attention to the threads and contacts. 

If necessary, you can use a small amount of isopropyl alcohol on a cotton swab to gently clean any visible buildup. 

Be sure to dry the battery and connections thoroughly before reassembling the device. 

If your wax pens are not charging despite cleaning them and trying to adjust the metal components, there could be several reasons for the issue. Here are some troubleshooting steps to consider:

1.  Ensure that the charging cable is in good condition and not damaged. Try using a different charging cable to rule out cable issues.

2.  Make sure you are connecting the charging cable to a working power source, such as a USB charger or a computer's USB port.

3.  Use a cotton swab or a small, soft brush to clean both the charging port on the vape pen and the connector on the charging cable. Dust or debris can obstruct the charging process.

4.  Vape pens have a limited lifespan, and the battery may no longer hold a charge. If the battery is old or damaged, it may need to be replaced.

5.  Inspect the vape pen for any visible damage or signs of a short circuit. If you notice any physical damage, it may be affecting the device's ability to charge.

6.  If none of the above steps work, it's advisable to contact the manufacturer's customer support or the retailer where you purchased the vape pen. They may be able to provide specific guidance or recommend repairs or replacements if the pen is still under warranty.

7.  Always exercise caution when dealing with electronic devices and batteries. If you are unsure about any aspect of troubleshooting or if you suspect a problem with the battery, it's best to seek professional assistance or dispose of the device safely.
