In this work, we will study the phenomenology of the dipole coupling between Dark Matter and Dark Photon to verify if the particles are still in thermal contact with the Standard Model. We propose an analysis of the models that are capable of generating this type of interaction and calculations of the Dark Matter mass limits, especially for direct detection with electrons, CMB, BBN, meson decay and production at the LHC.
