Charging port won't charge batteries
I plug in the mod to the charger and it won't charge the batteries. I think it's the charging piece, but I don't know what to do.
I just got the Alien mod yesterday and can't charge on my wall plug block either. I have been reading everything I can find and I think the answer is actually simple. You just aren't getting enough power through the wall block. Example is as follows:
Wall block output on mine = 1 volt at a max of 1 amp.
Standard USB port = 5 volt at a max of 1.5 amps
My batteries are 3.7 volts at a max of 35 amps. 1 volt is so low that it just won't power the battery. I would suggest going to your local dollar store and buy a wall plug that puts out a minimum of 3 volts, 1000ma. Should cost you about $1 plus tax and they usually keep them at the cash register or in the cables section depending on the size of the store.
Anyone else having this issue and the above solutions aren't working (besides the external charger of course which is the only easy fix) here is some info for reference. The charge port itself is soldered on the backside of the mother board and comes through a hole in the mother board and requires microsoldering to fix or replace the charge port, also covers are also lightly soldered onto the motherboard easily break if moved around. I added photos for reference (charge port cover has already been broken off in close up pics). Sorry since it's not really a solution
Your are not supposed to charge the alien through the USB port, the port should be used for firmware updates only. You need a external battery charger made for lithium batteries nite core and efest make inexpensive but reliable chargers. Charging any mod through the usb that takes more than 1 battery is dangerous.
I ran into this too, but most everyone above is right on the money. It technically can charge through the port and is even advertied for it, but they all eventually fry. Using an external battery charger should fix most of what you guys are working on. Seems stupid to include a port like that with no warning. I have a nitecore charger and no complaints so far, hope this helps
I just purchased a Smok X-priv. Day one it charged fine of the usb and my computer. The next day when the batteries were drained, I plugged it in and nothing. It wouldn’t charge. Found this site, and upon reading figures I’d have to buy an external charger. Then I tried my iPhone charger, still it wouldn’t charge. I then pulled the batteries, and without turning the MOD on. I again plugged it into the iPhone charger, and it started charging. I have charged it like this twice now. Letting it charge over night. Hope this helps someone else.
