I have a vape lighter I'm repurposing, and it has two surface mount LEDs that indicate two of its operating conditions. One LED indicates ready to light, the second lights when the coil is being powered. I don't need either LEDs and want to simply remove them, but not knowing the circuitry, I'm wondering if they need to be replaced with equivalent resistor values in order for the unit to run.

I could muscle my way through and just remove both, check if the unit still works the same way as with the LEDs connected, but I'd rather be more systematic in my approach, and not risk munging something up by being an ID-10-T.

Any suggestions?

Like David_AVD said, it's not likely that removing them will affect the operation. If it's simply that you don't want to see them, I'd go the paint route.
