The chip isn't that great in them but mine work.



It's each to their own tbh, mod wise I think they are shit, tank wise they actually manage to make those to feel quite good quality.

What are the Ohms of your build ? Hope this helps



0.25 single stainless vertical notch. SKU 4813700 wrapped in Muji.

Using it right now with a green Samsung. No issues whatsoever, been on the same battery 3 hours now. Polar opposite of the LG performance.

Joke's on you, this isn't actually a raffle.

Battery lengths is probably the cause of it, one battery makes the right connection and the other doesn't, have a look at the LG's and see if they show signs of being squashed top or bottom.

No. Top not squashed at all on either one.

That's a problem I had more often heavily using mechs before I switched to regs. I don't have a whole lot of dented batt caps anymore.

Are the top pins any different between the brands, i.e wider, narrower, button, flat?

Okay here's a thought, how's the center pin in the 510, I just had to swap my first Picos 510 out. A bad connection heating could cause more amperage draw is where I'm going.

Edit: Didn't take the other batteries working into account, scratch that.

Along the lines of the Cabby and the different battery lengths have you checked the screws to see if they have loosened up?

I am using a heatsink on it, so 510 connection is fine. I rarely use the Pico, so it's fairly new condition.

Like I said, other batteries no issues. Just the LG's.

To be honest (and not waste anyone's time) I could care less about a solution, because I already have one (don't use LG's in the Pico).

I was just putting it out there to see if anyone else experienced this crazy abnormality.

No waste of my time, I'm just sitting here page refreshing the help wanted ads all day.

I have 5 picos, and problems with only one in combination with LG batteries (the brown ones). Not the problems you have though.

Mine just doesn't work at all with the LG batteries, it's like it doesn't make contact at all. It just doesn't turn on. All other batteries work fine, all other picos work fine with the same LG batteries. It's just the one pico that fails to accept my LGs. LGs are not any shorter than my samsungs, so no clue where the lack of contact comes from.

Perhaps some picos do discriminate.

Okay, maybe all battery contacts aren't press formed equally or the springs under the + battery contact are wonky.
