    WTF? I have three dead MVPs all of a sudden.

    Yep.
    One Fairy Gifts V1 I'd bought DOA, which sprang back to life for no apparent reason a little while after having been opened up (couldn't find a problem, closed it up again, was still not working), which died again yesterday.
    One V2 which died the same way (has power, just a long green light with nothing happening) just now.
    Opened a new Fairy Gifts V1 I had stashed away just now, another DOA, same thing.

    Dammit. What's with all these MVP carking it??
    So much for a vapergeddon stash.

    Yeah, check 'em, Luvvy.
    But a V2 also went kaput, which has me scratching my head. And all were working perfectly and simply died after putting newly filled tanks back on.

    ETA - anyone who has a stash of Fairy Gifts MVPs, it might pay to go check 'em. Just in case it's not just me failing to have my left foot aligned with Pluto while spinning anticlockwise on my right foot. I must have missed the marker on the third spin.

    I will check them.

    I was only thinking the other day, I wonder 'how long' these batts last.... haven't really read anything about how long they last. I suppose it depends on how much you vape per day and how many times they've been charged but I wouldn't have any idea at all.
    However, you don't expect them to be DOA especially 2 of them!

    Essie, I will go and do some google. I vaguely remember there being a bit of a glitch if the puff counter goes past 999. It does some sort of chip reset. It stuck in my head so I turn off and on each charge.

    That doesn't explain the new ones as well.

    Has your stash been fried by an alien electrical pulse.

    Going off to check mine.

    I have just tried mine and they are ok. I have 3 x v1 that were still in their wrappers.

    I don't use their charging cable. But I am still using 2 of my original ones.

    LOL CC maybe it has. I might have been aligned with Uranus instead of Pluto LOL.

    I don't know, to be truthful. The first one came back to life the same day we opened it up. It was dead for no apparent reason, and so it was with its resurrection. I harbour a little hope that all three might live to ride again... I'm annoyed, though. They have been super reliable, but yeah, mine have been turned off regularly too, for handbag duty etc.

    I'm using early cables, too.

    I'll have to do some serious chin-stroking again, methinks.

    There is a humongous thread on ecf. Post 11761 talks about nautilus problems shorting out the device. I know you were using aspires, any chance you have shorted them with the tank.

    Better give you the link

    Thanks, Hun.
    But no, either ProTanks or Aspires. I'll have a read anyway, though
