Turn Off That Mod!!
OK, so how many of you actually power off your device when not in use? I don't mean for long term storage, I mean daily use, like at bedtime or when you won't be vaping for a few hours?

RE: Turn Off That Mod!!
I turn off my mods as soon as I have finished using them - even if that means only for 30mins. or so. Just a habit I got into.

Neither of us do. I suspect most of the vapers that choose to answer will say they either lock it or just never turn it off, just a hunch.

Lock it.

But if I'm not using it for a while the cells come out.

Can't poll on mobileĀ Undecided

Mine are permanently on but occasionally locked if they're bagged/pocketed. To be fair they're used from 8am-3am with little down timeĀ Smile

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

I lock mine when I put it in my jacket/pocket/backpack/etc. Otherwise it's always on.

I'm seeing a suspected trend, which Tesla probably considered when developing the chipset. Powering off isn't all that important to a lot of people. Another example of 'design for the masses' at work.

Just about nothing has a real off switch these days.

Cause the Snowflake Generation (Neds, chavscum, the entitled) can't bear to wait for an On switch.

Just deleted a lengthy rant about the entitled.

Who are what happens when you teach self-esteem in schools.

I was a teacher once. This nonsense makes me detonate.

Esteem is earned... If you can't earn it, you still have rights, but not rights that override those of the actually useful.

Looks like you lucky folks got another rant...
