My eGo III Twist died because of 5 press?
I bought a new eGo III Twist yesterday, it worked really well. At home while charging I pressed the fire button 5 times because i heard on another forum that you can check the charging with this. After this 5 press the blue light went out, and now i'm completely unable to turn on my eGo... it doesn't lights while on charger. Could this 5 press completely kill my eGo?

You've just turned it off. 5 more clicks and it should come back on.

This is where the problem comes. Nothing happens after I press it 5 more times, no light... The charger stopped charging when I pressed the button 5 times while charging (before that the battery worked fine), and does nothing since then.

RE: My eGo III Twist died because of 5 press?
The problem is that it doesn't want to turn on... The charges works fine because I charged it via that. Let me explain what happened exactly. It's a 23W 2200mah battery. It couldn't take the 14W so i decided to charge it. While charging everything seemed normal, the fire button lit, the charger went red with green flashes (which means it's checking the voltage). I rode on an another forum that if i press the fire button 5 times while charging and it's turns red, there's a connection problem. I wanted to try this so i pressed the fire button 5 times while charging and the blue light went out, the charger went to a solid green light. And the battery doesn't want to turn on since this.

It could be the charger that's gone faulty or its getting a bad connection somewhere, i would just take it back and get it replaced with it only been a day old
