How to Charge the SMOK Vape Pen V2
To charge the SMOK Vape Pen V2, connect the device to your computer using the included micro USB cable. The LED on the back of the device will indicate when the charge cycle is complete. The indicator glows red while the device charges, and it turns off when the device is fully charged.
How to Fill the SMOK Vape Pen V2
The top cap and mouthpiece of the SMOK Vape Pen V2 are a single component; they come off together when you twist the tank’s top cap counterclockwise. After you remove the top cap, you can access the interior of the tank. Add e-liquid to the glass enclosure until the tank is nearly full and then replace the cap. If you’re filing the tank for the first time or are refilling the tank after replacing the atomizer coil, give the coil’s cotton wick several minutes to become completely wet before you start vaping.
How to Replace the SMOK Vape Pen V2 Coil
Replacing the atomizer coil in the SMOK Vape Pen V2 requires you to remove the tank’s glass enclosure, so you’ll want to do that only when the tank is empty. When you’re no longer happy with the flavour that the SMOK Vape Pen V2 produces, it’s time for a new coil. Remove the tank’s top cap and wiggle the glass enclosure gently to disconnect it from the top of the vape pen. You’ll then have full access to the atomizer coil, which you can remove by twisting the coil counterclockwise. Twist in a new coil before reassembling and refilling the tank. Wait several minutes before vaping.
How to Vape With the SMOK Vape Pen V2
The SMOK Vape Pen V2 is an extremely simple device that has no settings for you to manipulate aside from the airflow collar, which you can twist to allow more or less air to flow through the tank. The Vape Pen V2 automatically operates at the ideal power level for the connected coil. To vape, simply hold the device’s button while puffing on the mouthpiece. To lock the device for safety when you aren’t using it, press the fire button five times quickly.
How to Fix Problems With the SMOK Vape Pen V2
One of the greatest benefits of having a vape pen with a simple design is that there aren’t many things that can go wrong with the SMOK Vape Pen V2. If your device does encounter an issue, though, you’ll find the answer you need right here. Use these tips to fix the most common problems that you might experience with the SMOK Vape Pen V2.
SMOK Vape Pen V2 Not Charging
If you’re certain that the battery of the SMOK Vape Pen V2 is dead – and the LED doesn’t illuminate red when you connect the device to your computer – the most likely cause of the problem is that the USB cable you’re using has an internal fault. Try charging the Vape Pen V2 with a different cable, and if that doesn’t work, try charging the device with a different computer. Don’t attempt to charge the SMOK Vape Pen V2 or any other vaping device with the wall adapter for a smartphone or tablet.
SMOK Vape Pen V2 Not Hitting
If nothing happens when you hold the SMOK Vape Pen V2’s fire button, first check to make sure that you haven’t turned the device off by pressing the fire button five times quickly. If that doesn’t work – and you’re certain that the device’s battery is charged – then the LED indicator on the back of the device should provide information that will help you pinpoint the cause of the problem.
- If nothing happens when you press the fire button, it’s likely that the SMOK Vape Pen V2 isn’t detecting the connected atomizer coil. Dissemble the tank and remove the atomizer coil. Use a cotton swab to clean the threading at the top of the SMOK Vape Pen V2 and to absorb any e-liquid that may have found its way under the atomizer coil. Reassemble the tank and try again.
- If the LED blinks four times when you press the fire button, there is a problem with the connected atomizer coil. Either the coil has a short circuit, or the resistance of the coil is outside the device’s supported range. Either way, the remedy is the same; you should discard the coil and install a new one.
- If the LED blinks 15 times when you press the fire button, the device’s battery is dead. Charge the SMOK Vape Pen V2 fully and then attempt to vape again.
SMOK Vape Pen V2 Leaking
If you’re new to vaping, you may find the tank of the SMOK Vape Pen V2 a little tricky to disassemble and reassemble because the tank’s atomizer coil and glass enclosure connect directly to the vape pen rather than a separate metal base as is the case with most vape tanks. After a little practice, working with the Vape Pen V2’s tank will become second nature. If the tank leaks, the most likely reason is that it is assembled incorrectly. Disassemble and reassemble the tank. As you put the tank back together, check for any damaged silicone gaskets, replacing any stretched or torn gaskets that you find. As you reassemble the tank, work slowly to ensure that you don’t cross any of the threads. If the atomizer coil or top cap doesn’t turn smoothly, back it up and try again.
