Tell us what brand and model your "vape pen" is, that information would help us dial in on what could be causing your problem. What tank are you using? Is it a all-in-one style? If you don't know the make and model, then could you take a picture of it and post it here so we can see?

I pulled this (well written) answer off Reddit, where I read it a while back... 

 

I know exactly what problem you are having. I have the same unit and I run into this almost every time I refill the tank. The problem is the coil is not making a connection to the base of the unit. There's two solutions to this problem, first one is pushing down and turning the top of the unit left (basically opposite of what you would do if you were taking the top off to refill) as you rotate you will feel a series of grooves. Try stopping in each groove and firing the unit.

Second one is loosening the coil a bit. I have always tightened the coil as much as possible, I realized backing out the coil just a rotation or two would make it closer to the metal base of the tank.

I'm guessing it is flashing five times rapidly? If so, it means resistance too low. Which would mean you don't have the coil screwed on tight enough to the top or it isn't reaching the bottom of the tank solidly enough. That or the coil is slanted and causing the short circuit warning.

The manual here says:

Functions: Short circuit protection:

1, When the short circuit occurs before working, the button light flashes for 5 times and then powers off. 2, When the short circuit occurs while working, the button light flashes for 3 times before short circuit (reset).

Atomizer protection:

eGo AIO has a 15 second run time protection. The light will flash 10 times if the button is pressed for more than 15 second.

Low voltage protection:

When the battery voltage drops lower than 3.3V, the button light flashes for 40 times and the device will power-off. Charge the device to power device back on.

Resistance test:

1, When the resistance at the output end is >5ohm, the light flashes slowly if you press the button. 2, When the resistance at the output end is <0.3ohm, the light flashes quickly for 5 times, suggesting the ohm is too low or potential short circuit.

I purchased it on Saturday 3 days ago the gentleman at the shop put it all together for me and I only refilled it once since then so everything is new. He told me to change the coil every 7 to 10 days.. it blinks 3 times after one hit

Now if I turn it to minimum air flow I can get multiple hits but when it's at max I get one hit with the blinking light

It sounds like the coil isn't making good contact in the base of the tank (try loosening the coil a bit in the cap), or perhaps the top cap is cross-threaded or not fully seating (causing the coil to not make good contact)?

Overfilling them can also cause the coil and or cap to not seat fully... liquid is not compressable, and you must have a small air-gap in the tank for it to work correctly.
