My Mod won’t turn on


#1

I just got a Smok Procolor kit a week ago and it won’t turn on, I think I know why but I don’t know how to fix it. The pin that connects to one of the batteries is flat unlike the otherone

which protrudes.


#2

@JamesEliot Yeah, it looks like that negative pin has been pushed down. Have you had the device for long?


#3

How were you charging it? If you were using pass through you have have fried the chip. Have you tried a different set of batteries in it?


#4

He had it for about a week :slight_smile:

@Alissaburton My bad, can’t read apparently lol. Agreed though, may have to do with passthrough charging. I know a lot of SMOK kits have gone down because of that… Even though SMOK says that they can be charged through USB. :expressionless:

The usb cable that comes with “smok” kits is for updating the screen on the mod or so i was told by 1 of my brothers


#7

@Kevin_Cole yes, this is true. Unfortunately SMOK also advertises on the boxes of their products that the cable can be used for charging as well (which I personally wouldn’t recommend—I’ve seen a lot of dead SMOK mods because of it).

Hey Kevin,

That’s exactly what I tell customers in store! Only use the USB cable to update the firmware on a device and a bay charger to externally charge 18650 batteries. Better to be safe than sorry.
