Unlike traditional cigarettes, electronic cigarette, or e-cigarettes, do not burn or contain any tobacco. The use of this gadget has been increasing largely in cities, and countries. More commonly referred to as a nicotine inhaler, electronic cigarette deliver a set dose of nicotine to the user in vapor form. Most batteries for e-cigarettes are located in the end of the cigarette and are usually rechargeable. Many things can cause these batteries to not work properly and fixing the battery usually means finding the cause of the problem. However, it is not that difficult to diagnose the problem associated with the battery and fixing it up.

Firstly, it is determined whether the battery is the only faulty component or not. The battery and the filter are then disconnected and reconnected. One possibility might be that the connection between the battery and the filter may be loose; this phenomenon would keep the e-cigarette from functioning properly. If there is another battery available, use that to ensure that the filter is not faulty.

The battery is removed from the filter. The presence of any excess moisture might cause the control chip in the battery to short out. The area around the nicotine cartridge should be looked at for any visible liquid on the filter or battery. If the battery is wet, it should be placed in a zip lock bag of rice for 24 to 48 hours. This will remove any moisture, if any, present in the control chip.

The battery is inserted into the charger. It is then ensured that the battery is properly charged. Plugging the battery into the charger while it is wet can cause the control chip to short out. So, care must be taken in all possible aspects so that the control chip doesn’t short out.
