VOOPOO Argus GT | Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting your VOOPOO Argus GT vape device?

If you own the VOOPOO Argus GT kit, this page will assist you to troubleshoot many of your potential problems. The VOOPOO Argus GT is a well-made quality device, but with any vaping product on the market, could experience issues.  Hopefully, you will find the questions you have and effectively troubleshoot your VOOPOO Argus GT system with this information.


My VOOPOO Argus GT is not firing when I push the button

This is a surprisingly common issue that customers have and one of the easiest to solve.  The most common reason your VOOPOO Argus GT is not firing when you push the button is because it is locked. Your device can be locked and unlocked by simply clicking the fire button five times quickly. The VOOPOO Argus GT is shipped in a locked position to prevent accidentally turning on during shipment. If you click the power button five times quickly it should unlock your device. The LED screen will turn on and show the VOOPOO symbol to indicate it is unlocked.

The second most common reason your product is not firing when you push the button is because the battery is dead. Simply plug your unit into a Type-C USB charging port using the provided cable and wait approximately one hour for your device to charge.


VOOPOO Argus GT is leaking

If your VOOPOO Argus GT is leaking there are a few things that you should be looked at in order to stop the leaking. Because of the tank & coil design of the VOOPOO Argus GT, it is an unlikely device to leak but there are a few common issues that could cause it to leak.

A) Over Filling

Overfilling your tank is the most likely reason for it to leak. Be sure to never fill your tank beyond the max capacity of the tank as it will leak out the top when you replace your coil.  When in doubt, fill your device to about 90% capacity.

B) Cracked plastic

If you dropped your VOOPOO Argus GT, or if it was in a pocket or purse that got bumped around a lot, it’s possible for the plastic pod to have broken. Even if you do not see a crack, if the leak is coming from near the top, it is possible that the plastic has been cracked. The plastic in the Argus GT can also crack if it is left below freezing temperatures for a period of time.

C) Coil installed incorrectly

The VOOPOO Argus GT has a unique coil that easily pushes into the pod, simply push the coil in until it is secured tightly into the pod. If it is in incorrectly then the coil will not sit flush with the device.

D) Drawing Too Quickly

If you take very fast, hard draws off just about any vaping device, including the VOOPOO Argus GT, your device will be prone to leaking.  Vaping devices use the power of your inhale to pull e-liquid to the heating coils and mix with the vapour. If you pull very long and hard on the device it is possible for some e-liquid to be pulled into the airflow chambers.  For all types of vaping, slow long drags are recommended.

E) Device Sitting For Too Long

You should never store any vaping device filled with e-liquid. Over time the e-liquid will saturate your coil and begin to leak.  If you are not planning on using your device for more than 24 hours be sure to empty all e-liquid.

F) Flying

The increased pressure of flying will make all vaping products leak; even the VOOPOO Argus GT. It is best to empty all vaping devices before flying on a plane.

G) Over Heating

If you leave any vape in a vehicle in the summer or in direct sunlight, it could leak. Overheating the device can cause the e-liquid to expand. This pushes the liquid out through the coil and out the mouthpiece, causing it to leak.  Temperatures rising expands the size of the molecules of the e-liquid. If your tank is full to begin with, your e-liquid will have nowhere to go but to leak out of the pod.

H) Freezing

Leaving your device in a vehicle or any area under the freezing temperature could cause it to leak.  This is because some parts are plastic can become brittle and are then susceptible to breaking under freezing temperatures.  The ideal temperature for any vaping device is +10 to +25 degrees Celsius.
