First thing to do with any vaping system is to make sure that all contact points are squeaky clean. I use 99% oil-free Isopropyl alcohol that is available at most pharmacies and a lint-free cloth to clean power cell terminals and other connections. The charge indicator on the mod estimates the remaining charge from the cell voltage. The weak battery indicator comes on when the cell voltage drops below a certain value while under load. The weak battery indication tells more about the cell's internal resistance than its state of charge. The cell can be fully charged and weak at the same time. Since a dirty cell connection can also give a weak cell indication the first thing to try is cleaning the cell terminals. After that about all you can do is replace the cell with a new one.
