For the record, I was a big Dr. Dabber fan. I owned their Ghost. I owned 2 Lights. No issues.

I bought a Dr. Dabber Aura because of the magnetics. I liked it and ordered another so that I could have a spare. The one thing I did not like was that the first Aura came with a DEFECTIVE CHARGER. The charger is intermittent. When you connect the battery, the light might turn to red to indicate charging, or it might stay green and not charge, or setting the charger and battery down might change the state of the light. No issue. I was ordering another because I liked the magnetics, and I need a spare because of medical needs.

So, I ordered the another complete kit. A few weeks after starting to use the first pen, I noticed that the coils weren't heating up, and a black stripe developed on the lit power button, where part of the button no longer lit up. I changed the coil. The old coil wouldn't heat. The new coil glowed, but dimly. After a few uses, it stopped altogether.

I moved to the replacement pen. It worked fine. I figured that the battery was defective in the first pen. I ordered a replacement battery. Two days after placing the order for the new battery, the second pen developed the same issues that the first pen had. The black stripe appeared on the power button, and the coil will not heat. The charging unit was also flaky.

So, I now have two defective batteries with another on the way, two defective charging units, 8 atomizers that I can't use; close to $400 wasted.

If you try to call Dr. Dabber, you will get a recording telling you that they answer their phones at 9:00am, Mon-thru Fri. It's 8May16, Monday, at 9:55am.... and the message is still playing.

I wouldn't buy another failure of a Dr. Dabber product if my life depended on it. Seriously. The folks behind this product need to understand that MEDICAL USERS NEED RELIABLE PRODUCTS.

The only things reliable about the Dr. Dabber Aura are the defective power cables, and the failures documented above. The office staff of this company appear to be missing-in-action, making the COMPANY as unreliable as the product they hawk.

This reviewer shared experience about damaged or defective and wants this business to "i invest more money into a different product and dr dabber can go *** themselves" as the author lost $360. The author is overall dissatisfied with Dr Dabber and uploaded picture s. He best about dr dabber vape kit from Dr Dabber was fact that i am no longer a dr dabber customer. Reviewer wants customer support to reach out to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.

All you have to do is use a toothpick, paperclip, or whatever to pull up (gently) the round center piece of the charger. During use the magnetic center piece can be depressed (pushed down) affecting the connection. It takes 3 seconds and it's fixed!

I'm also having the same problem with my charger staying green, so am not sure if it's charging. Agree, the magnetic connections are attractive but this charging problem sux. Luckily I have other vaporizers if this one proves a lemon as well:(

Same thing here. They replaced my first battery and the new one worked for about a day.

Now it barley makes connection, I'm forced to have to twist the atomizer until I see it fires off. Then if in lucky, sometimes I'll get a light hit. It's a shame bc I have a dr dabber boost which works great, but these pens sucks. I would recommend a gpen any day over this.

Gpen is far from the best but is better than this and for me always seems to do the job.

Shame on Dr dabber for this inferior product. Luckily they will keep replacing parts for 1 year, so I will continue to squeeze every last *** battery I can get out of them for the next year.

I have had the same problems. It seems like I have to twist the atomizer around to get a connect.

I have two as well and have had the same issue with the charger and coils not meeting the connect properly. I'm off to buy one of those candy pens or what ever they are called.

Something reliable.

Thank you. Finally got it to work thanks to your review.

For me, it wasn’t the charger.

It was the battery itself that needed adjustment with a paper clip. Much appreciated!

Same issues here. Tried to complain to the site and tried to order a replacement battery.

Contacted them twice, no reply. Finally took the pen back to the shop i bought it. We traded out all the parts I already had for a new battery (exchanged at shop but since I only needed a new battery, guy at shop said he would "warranty" it). New battery worked for a couple days.

Now completely stopped.

Piece of junk! Don't buy this.

Hey all- i had the same problem BUT THERE IS A FIX!!! The problem lies in the magnetic connectors- sometimes the metal contact points don't touch, so no electricity flows to atomizer.

All you need to do is take a tiny piece of aluminum foil, wad it up to a ball, and flatten it out. Then place on the round tab between the battery and atomizer. It has to be really thin, like 1/32 of an inch, or it won't work. Just thick enough to cover the gap.

If the light flashes, it needs to be thinner. The edge of the foil ball you just made should not touch the any side parts or it won't work.

I've used it like this for months flawlessly. For the charging issue, just use the foil pad to ensure proper charging.

I've been having the same problem with my Aurora. I called Dr.

Dabber today and was able to get someone on the phone after about a minute on hold.

They recommended I try adjusting the battery contact to the atomizer by using the dab tool or tip of a screwdriver to contact the battery and then rotate it to raise up the part that connects to the atomizer. They also said if that didn't work to call back and they'd set me up with a warranty claim.
