I was using my 510 just now , it was freshly charged and was working fine when the light on the end started blinking , I right away unscrewed the battery from the atomizer and the light continued to blink for another 5-7 seconds after then it went out .
I havnt tried it again yet but what the heck was that about ?

Usually, the culprit of a blinking LED is reaching your cutoff point or your battery dying. Try it again. If it works fine, that was probably just the cutoff feature so the device doesn't overheat. If it just blinks again, try recharging the battery.

P.S.- JUST freshly charged, you mean? Maybe the battery just went bad on you.

It could be one of 3 things:



1. The battery is dead and needs charged

2. It's not Joye model. Boge tech for example creates a 510 model that has a 5 second cut off. This is a "Safety feature" built into the unit. When you take a drag for longer than 4 seconds or so it will shut off and the battery LED will blink. After a about 7 seconds you'll be able to take a drag off off the model again. If this happens it's not a Joye.

3. It's a bad battery

Another option is the cleaning cycle,after 200 puffs some of them have a cleaning cycle that is supposed to burn off the residue.As long as it returned to normal I wouldn't worry about it.

I think my 901 batts have a 9 sec. cutoff. When that is reached the LED blinks rapidly and the switch is inoperative while it is flashing. I've heard that some have cutoffs as soon as 4 sec.

Steve, Could be a bad connection, but I'm thinking you got a bad batt if it is doing it on a fresh charge. Or maybe your Charger is defective?

Can't really add anything that hasn't already been said. But my first unit had a cut-off of about 6 sec. and it use to drive me crazy. I don't think you have anything to worry about. If it keeps up and your unit doesn't work right then it's time to find something new.

Good luck and happy vaping.

I've read about these cleaning cycles. I believe they're only built into the automatic batteries.
