A friends Dad said he tests cartridges at the dispensary before he buys them, because they are oftten incompatible with his battery, while another cartridge of the same model/make works fine. Like it’s a luck of the draw.
Is this a real issue from manufacturers? How can we simply fix this as a consumer who got a faulty cartridge?
Yes this is a real problem. back when i use to fill cartridges. We use to do a random pull on 3 of 100 just for testing and quality control purposes. If any failed, we would do more testing on the batch…if none failed, we wouldnt worry much but knew there was like a 5% fail rate so we were prepared to exchange a few out.
You need to make sure the battery your purchaser is using has the same ohms as the cartridges. I hate so much when a customer would buy a cartridge to use on his/her battery…come back and say the cartridge is not firing to discover a mis matched ohms between the cartridge and battery. Before i stopped all together with the cartrigdes, i would match the cartridge and battery and practically just give the batteries away…i stopped a ton of returns
Has anyone expirimented with using a needle or paperclip to adjust the connection on the cartridge? I have gotten my battery to accept a cartridge that it previously didnt like after fiddling with the cart connection but it didnt transfer any heat.
What are the electrical principles here? Im electrically challenged…
A vape pen is like a flashlight with a battery, with the cart being most akin to a light bulb. The vape pen applys electricity to the heater inside the cart, the heater vapes the extract. If you have a regulated power soure you can apply electricity in the correct format to power the cart.
You cart most likely wasn’t making electrical contact, in that case the circuit was broken, by connecting it with a paper clip you completed it allowing it to work. No doubt this cart was out of manufacturing tolerance.
