If your battery is sticky, clogged or you experience airflow or battery activation issues, cleaning your battery connections will most likely easily resolve the issue.
Pro-tip – grab an alcohol based product like isopropyl or ethyl. 70% alcohol is ideal. Lightly dampen a wipe or swab with your alcohol solution making sure that your wipe or swab is not dripping. It should be only slightly damp. Please squeeze out any extra moisture.
Remember, AVD cartridges have a premium center pin spring connector. Be gentle to avoid breaking the spring as you proceed with the following steps. You can always repeat the procedure if your connection is very dirty.
Using your swab or wipe, clean:
- around the battery threading
- the battery center contact point
Allow the battery to fully dry before reconnecting to your cartridge.
