Booster 'frying' my attys?
« on: December 18, 2011, 12:39:35 PM »
I have been using my booster for about 3 weeks now and have a feeling it may be 'frying' my attys. 3 x 510 attys have just stopped working after a few days use, some lasted one day, others 4 or 5 days...they just go dead. It also happened to a tank atty...working fine then nothing. The booster does get really red hot, almost too hot to touch when I am vaping heavily. All connections are clean and dry, good batteries etc.

Anyone else having similar problems?

The coil or element is what heats up and using a booster increases the heat and it wears out quicker
this is where t.w falls behind the times a little, at the moment they don't do a high resistance attie
that means the coil or element is made out of hire resistant or thicker wire if you will
if you imagine running a kettle on a 3 amp fuse it will break the fuse...burn it out
this is what is happening to your atties try a lower voltage (turn the booster down)
im afraid thats all i can say on the matter

True terrier :), but ean's point still stands.  No high resistance attys/cartos available on TW for hiV vaping.

John, turn it down mate.  I know it's tempting to really crank the power, but you should be able to find a lower setting that won't kill your attys, but still give you a better hit than stock voltage.  Anyway, IMO the flavor suffers too much at higher voltages.  I just use my booster to safely vape the CE3s, to get a little more mileage from older attys, and to dial in the best flavor for whatever flavor/atty combo I'm using.  Most of my VV vaping is done between 3.6 and 4.4 volts, with some rare exceptions.  Unless your using a high-res atty, most flavors are going to wash out by 4.5v, if not sooner.  Just my opinion.  YMMV.  I look forward to your law suits (please mail all subpoenas, nasty comments, hate-mail, :-\ anything w/o money included in it really, to Darth or caz... thank you all for your continued support.). :D

Thanks for the replies....TW customer service have deemed it faulty, (who wre very nice and efficient) so a replacement is on its way. I will however, turn my dial down!

No worries ean.  You had the wire gage backward, but you had the right idea (and a good point).  Cheers! :)

I think you gotta turn your Booster UP for that juice . . .
