What do the solid LED colors on a vape pen mean?
When the vape pen is on, it can give different lights that vary depending on the voltage setting. To change from one setting to the other, you need to click on the button twice. Are you new to vape pens and are wondering what do the colors on a vape pen mean? Well, they have different meanings depending on the device:
Solid Red LED Light
This is the highest voltage (4.0 volts). You get the biggest vape hit when you vape at this setting, but you often sacrifice the flavor. Some THC cartridges even begin to burn in this setting.
Solid Blue LED Light
Also known as, the dab mode, the blue light will come on when you are vaping at 3.8 volts. You should only vape at this voltage when you are vaping extracts with a 510-thread wax atomizer. To avoid damage, only use cartridges that can take the setting.
Solid Green LED Light
The green light will come on when you are vaping at a 3.6 volts setting. This is the best setting as it has been proven to prolong the battery life and, at the same time, reduce the heat used in vaporizing the contents in the cartridge.
Why won’t my vape pen hit?
Sometimes you will have the vape pen fully charged, with enough cannabis material, and no blinking lights, but still, it won’t hit. This can be brought about by a variety of factors, with the most common ones being:
The battery is off:
Sometimes, you will have a full battery, but if you don’t turn it on, you won’t get the hit you are looking for. Depending on your vaping device, you may need to press the firing button five times to bring it to life. When the device comes on, check the indicating lights. If the battery is full, you should have green lights, but if they are red or orange, you may have to recharge them or replace them with a fresh set.
Firing pin sitting too low:
The firing pin is designed to move up and down to connect with the atomizer and give you a solid electrical current to the coils. Sometimes due to excessive use or abuse, the pin will get too far down into the connector, and it fails to make a connection hence the reason you aren’t getting a hit even when everything else seems to be working properly.
Flooded coil and atomizer:
If your tank is full, but you aren’t getting any vapor, or the vapor is too low, it could be due to a flooded atomizer or coil. To fix this, take your atomizer apart and clean it using a paper towel. You can alternatively blow through it to remove the excess liquid. While at it, look at the firing pin and connector. If the liquid has leaked out of these areas, clean them with a bit of paper towel or cotton swab to ensure a solid connection.
What is the best way to charge a vape pen battery?
For the best charging experience, charge the batteries at a moderate temperature (50-86 degrees F). It’s common for the battery or device to get hot during the charging. When this happens, disconnect the device from the charger and wait for a few minutes, then reconnect it. If the device heats up again, you most likely have a battery or charger problem. Diagnose the problem to find the cause. Keep a close eye on the vaping device and disconnect it from the power as soon as the green light comes on.
Never ignore any blinking lights.
Sometimes your vaping device will blink, then the lights go off, and it continues functioning normally. Other times, the device will blink and still function properly. Even if it’s still working, you should not ignore the blinking as it might be a sign of a deeper underlying problem. Move with haste, find out the reason for the blinking, and fix it before it’s too late.
These are just a few reason as to why a vape pen may blink, display different LED colors or not work. If these solutions don’t explain why your vape is not performing the way it should or doesn’t solve your problem, we recommend reaching out to the vape pen manufacturer.
