RE: Problem with kangertech Dripbox
That's a strange one. Given that the Dropbox hasn't been on the market long, I'd contact Kanger and point out that this isn't very good.

In the EU, I'd take it straight back to where I'd bought it and demand a replacement but US consumer law is different.

RE: Problem with kangertech Dripbox
If your that way inclined there are two immediate solutions.. you could bend the battery spring loser or widen the button hole. Sounds to me like the circuit is moving under the tention of the battery spring. It's also possible you have a thicker than normal battery, if you can try out another make it might work.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: Problem with kangertech Dripbox
I'm using 6 wraps of 0.42mm Kanthal on a 3mm former and dual coils on mine.

I'm not fond of the stock atomiser and replaced it with a bottom-feed Zenith I had lying around. Much more to my liking.

Around 0.4 ohms. Works for me.
