What are Atomizers & Coils?
Atomizers, also referred to as coils, are the main heating component of your tank. The atomizer is necessary to the functionality of vaping. Atomizers create the vapor production and control the production levels as well. Atomizers are also a disposable portion of your vape device, and because of this, they may quit working at points, or simply burn out. Here are a few tips and tricks regarding atomizers.
Why is my device reading "No Atomizer/Coil"?
Before use of any device/tank, be sure to check and see if the ohms that are printed on the coil (also labeled on the box for the coils) , are the same as what is stated on the device. Too low of ohms can and will be dangerous.
Check to see if the device is indeed on and charged.
If the device is on and it is reading "No Atomizer/Coil," please try placing your tank onto a different device. If at this point the atomizer/coil does function properly, the problem is not your atomizer/coil, it is actually a problem within your device.*
Examine the atomizer/coil for any damage, bent posts or over-usage (burnt coil). If there are signs of damage to the coil, for your safety please throw away the coil properly and install a new one.
There is always the chance of receiving a "dud" coil. In this case, please remove the "dud" and place it with a new one. If this does continue to be problematic, please contact Customer Service.
I put my tank on a new device and it is now functioning fine?
If you follow the steps for troubleshooting the atomizer, and you found that it was actually your device and not the atomizer itself. Please check out our RMA Article, to see if you qualify for our warranty.
When the device is at fault for the "No Atomizer" reading, it is typically caused by damage to the 510** or a short within the device. At this point, your device is rendered useless.
I have a stick device and it is not firing?
If your stick device is flashing multiple times when you attempt to use it, there is a good chance that your coil is bad. Or your 510 could be damaged as well, even though this is less common in stick devices, it can occur.
Please follow the same steps above, to troubleshoot your device.
However, with stick devices there is still the possibility of shortages within the device. Please direct your attention to the user manual provided in the box of the purchased device, to see what code means what for your device.
*Please contact Customer Service as they will be able to provide RMA services for you. However, most of the time 510 damage is deemed as a user error problem, typically caused by dropping or misuse. Which in turn does void our warranty. Please read our RMA Article to see if you qualify.
**A 510 connector is the pin inside the device that funnels the power from the batteries to the tank and coil.
What about Battery safety and information?
Always keep rechargeable batteries in a case. Never keep them in your pocket or purse. Metal objects such as loose change and keys can short the battery and cause severe injury.
Lithium-ion batteries are volatile. They may burn or explode with improper use. Do not use or charge with non-approved devices. Overuse of vaping apparatus may cause this product to overheat, malfunction, and/or may cause burns.
Do not leave this product unattended while charging anytime or overnight, and do not charge it in your vehicle.
Keep away from high heat, direct sunlight, cold temperatures, humidity and water.
Do not mix new and used batteries or different brands.
If the battery or device looks damaged, do not use it.
Never drop, damage, or tamper with the batteries.
Do not throw batteries into fire.
Always turn off your vaping device in between uses.
Please recycle or dispose according to local law.
Charging External Batteries (18650;20700;21700 etc) Properly:
We do not recommend charging external batteries with a USB cable as this can lead to the following --
Overheating of the device and batteries
Not fully charging the batteries, leading to a shorter lifespan.
Over-charging the batteries.
Potential shortage of batteries.
Potential shortage of devices.
We do recommend purchasing a 2-Bay or 4-Bay battery charger, as these provide charging "caps" which will turn off charging once batteries are fully charged, limiting the chance of shortages within the batteries.
We currently carry various Efest chargers, which are some of the most reputable battery chargers in the industry.
Charging Internal Battery Devices:
Charge with the provided USB Cable.
Do not charge overnight, in your vehicle or unattended.
Do not charge longer than 5 hours, depending on the size of the battery.
Overcharging batteries can cause overheating, and eventual shortage of battery/device.
