    Good Morning Friends,

    I just got an Asmodus Minikin 2 yesterday. I needed a new mod and I was excited to get it. But with 2 fully charged LG HG2 batteries in it, vaping a .25 ohm coil in a Crown 3 at 95 watts, as soon as I hit the fire button, the battery meters go from full to nothing. Sometimes it fires and sometimes it just says low battery. This was something that was happening on my Fuchai 200W as well, but I figured it was an issue with the mod and voltage sagging, or something like that. I understand Ohm's law enough to know how to avoid blowing my face off, but this problem has me stumped. Is this a battery issue or a mod issue? And what in the world can I do about it?

    Thank you!
    James T.

    Mine does that. It's just how the mod works. If you look when your using it the battery meter goes down an back up.
    I use a cleito 120 at 70-90 watts and get no where near a day of chain vaping but that's same on all my mods.
    On my 4 battery mods I get 2 days and my mate at vape shop gets like double that hahaha.
    The minikin V2 is a good mod so get spare batteries and stick with it. It discharges to 3.3v which ain't bad at all :)

    This happens with multiple sets of batteries, skt239.

    SkoldVape, I don't understand. Are you really telling me that the minikin V2 is a good mod, BUT I shouldn't expect it to be able to deliver 95 watts on batteries that have literally *just* come off the charger?? If that's the case, I don't see how anyone can call this a good mod.

    I guess I'm gonna have to order some new batteries and see if that helps. But if it doesn't, and I can't vape at 95 watts on a full charge on brand new batteries, then as far as I'm concerned, I got a dud or the mod in general is garbage. I don't get it.

    my girl has a pair of the manikin v2s and what skoldvape said.
    as you hit the button, the battery meter drops, showing the battery sag.

    so long as you are using good 20a batteries you should be good.
    we use, the lg and Samsung 3000mah cells

    OK I was under the impression that "voltage sag" was a *bad* thing. I also want to re-iterate that sometimes I can get it to fire when this happens, but oftentimes it just says "low battery"... again when I'm firing on a fully-charged set right out of the charger.

    that's what we use without issue... my money would still be on the batts not the mod.
    we run it around 110w

    I think they are laptop batteries that are probably like 10a. Get Samsung 25r. Samsung 30q, Sony vtc5as. You have loads of options

    I think the 25r's are the best and safest bet
