Step 1 – Cut the wire
In the very beginning, take the cable, it can be your unused USB cable or lightning cable. Sometimes we leave android or apple chargers for issues, even when the cable is okay. You can use that.
You need to cut it around 2 to 3 cm from the end, which will reach the USB point of the cart. Use your wire stripper tool for a precise cut-off.
Step 2 – Exposing the Cable
Cutting the cable off, the four main core wires will be revealed to you. There will be a green, a red, a black and a white wire.
Safely remove the white and green wires so that, the other two wires don’t get interrupted. Take the black and white wires out of the cable completely.
Step 3 – Detach the red and black
You can now find that the ends of the red and black wire are connected. And you need to strip them and detach them from each other. The wire stripper will do the duty here. Precisely remove the coating of the wire and expose them.
Step 4 – Finalize Connection
On the bottom of your vape cartridge, you may find a hole. Connect it to the black wire. And then, connect the red wire to the cart’s metallic body.
Next, connect the charger to the power source and you are done.
For some devices, you may not see any instant reaction. But within a few minutes, the cart starts producing vapors being hot.

Is Hitting Your Vape Without Batter Or Charger Is Safe?
Actually, no device is completely safe when you are operating that with some authorized handles. When your vape cart is damaged, maybe the battery is gone, or the bottom piece of the cart came off on the pressure, or crack in the cart and no trick is working on it.
There are different ways to hit your vape cart without a proper charger or capable battery, tricks are different and their risks are also different.

You may find these kinda tricks like how to make wires for carts, how to smoke cracked cartridges etc. But there is not so many reliable tricks about how to hot wire the cartridge. You may find them useful completely or partially, but they can be risky sometimes.
