Weak Battery / Low Battery
I know some of you would have had this show on screen, and I am curious whether it is a battery fault, or a mod fault. I've got two batteries, only one shows this message often, and I am inclined to believe it would be the battery, for whatever reason? However, after a small tap, the battery no longer causes this issue, however if I remove it, it continues.

I'd like to know peoples input, would this be a mod fault, or a battery fault?

P.S - Second battery has never shown this.

Never seen it myself, and I've used (new) 25Rs and VTC4s in mine.

What battery are you using? How old is it? Does it only occur at high wattages? Are the top or bottom caps indented?

Currently using 25Rs, I think they're roughly 8 months old, no real damage to either top, bottom nor casing on either battery. Vape at 45w, and it tends to drop to 15-30w due to "weak" battery.
As mentioned, If I tap the mod, it can sort itself out, which worries me that it is something to do with the mod.. but since it hasn't happened with the other battery, I'll still guess that is the cause.

+1^. Couldn't hurt, and could be the problem.

Also, take a look at the top (positive) battery connection. Should stick out about 4mm with no battery in and compress down to about 2mm with a typical battery. Maybe it's stuck half way in and not making good contact with that one battery for some reason. It's a very strong spring in mine, so if yours feels loose that could be a problem.
