Vape over discharged battery / Locked in battery low protection. (Geekvape Aegis Legend) https://ift.tt/2QW3AgM

So a few weeks ago I noticed one of my batteries were nearly dead and the other full after charging. I took one hit and went to work. At work I decided to see if I could get one more hit, and as I assumed it was in battery low protection.

Went home and tried to charge the batteries. I put them back into the vape after charging and to my dismay my vape was locked in battery low protection. Tried USB charging to see if it would unlock but kept getting the same error. I couldnt even do a firmware update as my laptop would not recognize. I read many people having the same problem with this particular vape (Geekvape aegis legend).

So fast forward to today and I just ordered another vape. A co worker gave me an old vape till my new one arrives. I tossed my batteries in and had no luck. Went to try and charge again, but the one cell showed 0.7 volts and then said error. So I figure now it was just over discharged.

What would cause my vape to suddenly just kill a battery? I thought my vape had just kicked the bucket, but now I'm unsure if it was just the battery or if bad luck struck twice and my battery and vape are both screwed. I'm also weary of trying new batteries in my old vape, if something was possibly wrong with it and had caused my battery to fully discharge.

Could a hardware problem or short circuit potentially cause my battery to fully discharge? Or could a fully discharged battery potentially lock a vape in an error code? Even if I could get it to unlock I'm not sure if I would even trust my old vape with new batteries at this point. So I will just use the new one when it gets here. But does anyone have any advice or similar experiences?
