In the past 3 months, I’ve used up 6 IGET Bar Plus pods to do a comprehensive review. After fixing several times of malfunctions, I have summarized 9 reasons for the device failure.
In this guide, I will not only unveil the reasons behind device malfunctions but also help you with simple troubleshooting efficiently! Just follow me to dive into this vape!
9 Reasons For Bar Plus Not Working
Here is my compiled list of 9 reasons why is my IGET Bar Plus not working, which is based on the Reddit discussion and my practice.
To simplify your troubleshooting, I’ve ranked these 9 reasons in the order of check difficulty. Let’s begin with the easiest one: the protective seals!
1. Unripped protective seals
When manufactured, the IGET Bar pods come with a protective seal and stopper.
If the seal is not peeled off, the pod can’t be tightly connected to the battery base’s contacts. Thus, the battery power cannot reach the pod, and the vape will not be activated.
The cloggings blocked in different parts can lead to varying degrees of malfunction.
3. Loose magnetic connection
The I GET pod is connected to the battery by the magnetic contacts above the battery base.
If you happen to put it near a powerful magnet or in a high magnetic environment, the magnetic contact will lose its force.
The loose magnetic connection renders the battery power fail to reach the pod, leading to device malfunction.
If you want to know how to use IGET Bar Plus, here is also a review with detailed usage method:
4. Low Battery
When the vape is in low battery, it is unable to support the atomizer working, leading to reduced vapour, lessened flavour and a lack of heat.
It should be mentioned that these signals may also result from insufficient e-liquid, which requires you to read on to learn extra identification tips.
5. Insufficient E-Liquid
Generally, one Bar Plus pod with 6000 puffs can support 12-25 days of vaping. But for heavy users or deep-puffing chasers, this period will be less.
When the e-liquid level is low, the atomizer lacks a source to vaporize, leading to lessened vapour production, reduced flavour and a burnt taste.
You may mistake this situation as the vape atomizer not working, but actually, the atomizer works. This vape just needs a new pod to get alive again.
To distinguish between low e-liquid and low battery, you can check for a burnt taste while vaping.
When there is not enough e-liquid, the atomizer begins to heat the coil and wick, which causes a burnt taste. However, a low battery may not provide enough power to heat the e-liquid fully.
6. E-Liquid Leakage
Serious IGET Bar Plus leaking can cause premature e-liquid depletion, which in turn fails to support the atomizer’s heating and potentially corrodes the battery components.
Most pod leaks occur due to cracking during improper delivery, accidentally dropping the ground, or exposure to high-pressure environments such as aeroplanes.
The e-liquid leaking situation is usually accompanied by a sticky feeling on your hands or a sweet flavour while vaping.
7. Child Lock False Activation
Some manufacturers offer Bar Plus with a child lock design. The IGET Bar Plus lock mode may be activated for safety before shipping and requires you to unlock it before use.
With the child lock activated, the airflow sensor inside is blocked out, and the vape cannot be puff-activated.
8. Overuse In Vaping
If you vape too quickly, the atomizer may not keep up with your pace, leading to slow and thin vapour production or even no vapour.
At the same time, the prolonged vaping time causes the vape to overheat, which may trigger an automatic shutdown or coil burning.
9. Extreme Environment
How To Fix IGET Bar Plus Not Working
After figuring out the reasons behind the malfunctions, let’s go through my quick troubleshooting tips ahead!
Use your hands to peel off the protective seal directly and remove the white stopper in the mouthpiece.
Then, insert the pod into the device to check if there is a white flashing light at the bottom of the vape.
If so, it indicates the pod is connected to the battery, and you can start vaping.
Use a cotton swab or soft brush to gently remove clogging from the mouthpiece, magnetic contacts on the battery base, and charging port.
When the clogging is removed, try inserting the pod again to check if it works with a white flashing light.
To avoid demagnetization between the battery base and the pod, remember these 2 suggestions:
- Don’t place the strong magnets with this vape
- Keep the vape away from highly magnetic environments
When the battery is low, you need to follow the detailed steps for charging this vape:

Here are 3 simple steps to replace a new Bar Plus pod with this vape:
It is not recommended to refill this pod as it is a single unit. Any disassembly or refilling may damage the internal atomizer parts and cause the pod to malfunction.

1. Replacement Frequency
Considering the average vaping frequency, it is recommended to replace the pod after 12 to 25 days of use.
2. Replacement Times
The optimal pod replacing times is 5, with a maximum of 10.
To ensure the optimal flavour while vaping, we also recommend regularly replacing your pods.
With over 19 Bar Plus flavours to choose from, the Bar Plus pod provide you with a diverse vaping experience in long-term pod replacement.
If you’re clueless about choosing the IGET pod flavours, I suggest you read this flavours review for a better purchasing decision:
To prevent e-liquid leakage from the mouthpiece of the vape, it is advised to keep it in a vertical position. Using it upside down can cause the leakage to accelerate.
We also don’t recommend vaping while lying down, as this leads to the vape turning upside down, causing the e-liquid to leak out of the mouthpiece.
Here are the IGET Bar Plus child lock instructions I’ve summarized in vaping:
To activate or deactivate the child lock of this vape, just insert and remove the pod from the vape and repeat this process 3 times in 3 seconds.
|When Re-insert Pod
|Activate Child Lock
|Flashing red 2 times
|Cancel Child Lock
|Flashing white 2 times
|Flashing white light
- Many tutorials recommend that this process be controlled in less than 3 seconds.
- But in practice, I found completing it in less than a second gives the highest success rate.
To help you get a better idea of a moderate vaping speed, I’ve summarized the average time at which vapour is produced and stays in the air.
- Vapour generation: 1-3 seconds
- Vapour retention: 3-6 seconds
As a result, it is advisable to wait for 4-6 seconds between each puff when using a vape. It allows the vape atomizer to cool down before the next puff.
By doing so, the vapour can be cooled down before it reaches your throat, resulting in a smoother vaping experience.
Remember, it’s strongly not recommended to vape for several hours at a time or even overnight. It also causes overheating and the vape to malfunction.
Put it in a dry and cool place that avoids direct sunlight. Here are 4 factors you should take into consideration:

- Low battery fails to support atomizer working
- Insufficient e-liquid leads to lessened vapour
- Child lock mode blocks the activation sensor
