eGo twist not charging
Just went to charge my eGo twist 1000mah battery and its not recognising it at all.

When I plug the usb charger in (a specific ego one, with the wire) it lights up green even though nothing is plugged into it.

When I screw the twist on its still green and the twist doesn't flash to indicate charging.

I've tried attactching everything and then turning the plug socket on, having the socket on and attatching the charger, having everything on and screwing the twist in.

Nothings working.

Seems very disappointing that its broken after what most only be 3-4 weeks at most.

RE: eGo twist not charging
you could try moving the centre pin up just a fraction sometimes it can get pushed down and then not make a connection with other things.

Good advice from USMMUK and Violetblade. If you have no success, contact the vendor you bought it from as there should be a guarantee. Hope you get it sorted.

Center pin without a doubt.
If you've got a 510 to ego adapter with an adjustable center they're great for generic chargers.

Seems to be working now. No idea what I did but all is well.

Heres what the connection looks like for what its worth. It feels like a solid plate, is that the big that people are suggesting could somehow be 'popped' back up?

RE: eGo twist not charging
Great video violetblade! Wished I known that a few months back:

I had an eGo battery (about three months old) that did a similar thing and the centre pin no longer seem to make contact with the USB charger, even ensuring the contacts were clean. I carefully took a bit of tin foil, folded it several times (note: this was a fraction of the pin size) and placed this directly in the middle of the centre pin of the (upright) battery and carefully screwed the USB charger on top. The battery then recharged.

I had a similar issue, but it was the centre pin on the charger that needed raised rather than the battery.
