Wismec Reuleaux RX2/3 Charge Error
Hello,
       I am James I have been Vaping for about a year now and purchased the RX2/3. sucks that my first post is about an issues I am having. I am having charging issues in my RX2/3 with charging through USB. Yes I know that it has the feature but it should not used, but I am traveling abroad and could not bring my dedicated charger. When I charge it with USB it will charger for a min. then stop charging. I have tried all my different USB cables, with all my different wall plugs, and all the cables on my computer to charge. I also made sure that the firmware was all up-dated, moved the batteries around. But it still only will charge for a min. and stop. if i unplug it and plug it back in it will start and charge for a min then stop. With that said has anyone see this issue on these mods? Maybe know of a fix? 

Current Battery voltage. 
Battery 1 3.45
Battery 2 3.45
Battery 3 3.47

Hi and welcome James!

I suspect that it stops charging as it is pushing the cells out of balance.

The cheapest option would be to get a simple single cell charger like this one (It needs a phone charger to feed it)

But that won't be all that fast though I think they have a US warehouse.

Go get yourself a battery charger, I got a intellicharger d4 works perfectly, get a extra set of batteries also. I swap mine out to charge a few times week. My rx2/3 works perfectly. When you use the USB you don't get a clean charge. Trust me invest in a charger.

Thanks for they replies guys. the problem is I could not bring my charger with me as I am right now in the Middle East for work. It sucks cause one of the main reasons i bought this mod was its ability to charge via USB and its battery size.

James, welcome to TVF.

As for the USB charging, the mod and your limited options - invest in another mod - we can discuss many things here, however you have raised your vaping problem and we have given you the solution...if external chargers are the issue and USB charging is a must, then go with a mod that uses a lipo.

Rotate the batteries round one slot until they're all equal? Pia I know, but it should work if you keep an eye on it.
Or just charge and use it with two batteries.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

The RX200, which uses the exact same chip as the 2/3, is known to have some serious issues with the USB charging. I'd really recommend pretty much any other mod over that one for USB charging. Sorry that happened to you, mate Sad 

If you want one that's really reliable, any DNA200 mod has great USB charging that balance charges your cells, but they are a bit pricey. The Triade DNA200 is one of the less expensive options and is similar shape to the Releaux.
