Kangertech.....first and proably last
So, I feel like my mod was heading for death at this point. The first issue was the 9.99 ohms flashing even with the tank and mod making a connection, the issue was fixed. Then the mod decided it wasn;t going to heat the coil up, now after 2 good weeks of vaping, I'm getting a flashing 0.00 ohms reading when I try firing my mod. At first, the mod was reading the coils correctly, tried with the RBA, ceramic coil, and nickel coil, but it stopped firing and then started flashing 0.00 ohms for all three. Then it would read coils that were .5 at .17 or less. From what I've read it means there's a short and if that's the case am I Fu****?  I tried a new tank, coil and battery plus a new battery and same shit. I also have heard a "click" sort of sound inside the mod when i try to fire it, if that may help with this diagnosis.

Which Kanger mod do you have? The 9.99 ohm reading is a sign the tank is the problem, namely, the coil - could be too tight or not tight enough.... 2 weeks with any single coil is close to its lifespan...so if the tank is not working, that could be the problem...

Na those issues were fixed. the newest issue is the flashing 0.00 ohms when I try to fire it.

2 different kanger tanks, both toptanks, 1 was brand new because the original was giving me the 9.99 ohm reading. I guess I didn't make it clear....the kangertech topbox mini is what I'm using and the 0.00 ohm reading is the issues I'm having now.

Is the center pin spring loaded on those? If it is give it a poke, see it it still functions as it should.

Like many have learned before you, Kanger is not the good mod builder. In fact there last good mod was the old Kanger 40. It's just time to move on.

sad but I am shopping around now. Don't want to spend too much at the moment so i'm looking on various websites for deals. Anyone know much about the balrog 70 starter kit? looks pretty good and people seem to like it .

RE: Kangertech.....first and proably last
I have a Balrog, absolutely love it. The tank isn't the best around, but it isn't bad either. The mod is gorgeous. I did a full review on here a few months ago, let me see if I can find it, one sec... 


Edit: here's a link to the review from way back in February. Man, time flies doesn't it? Can't believe it was that long ago.
