    I've heard worse horror stories.

    As a kind of segue into the humorous side of vaping I'm going to share this video below.

    But where I find the humor is everyone warned n suggested I get away from my mech mod so I don't blow my self up n get a regulated mod so what do I do almost blow up my regulated box n melted my drip tip on the avacado 24 n only one place has replacements online authorized site that geekvape has contract with geekvape wouldn't even send me out one for free the sent me the site to buy one

    I have had a tip melt into a velocity RDA with the 510 adapter once- I forgot to lock a mech mod, and put it down, and left without realising. It was completely my fault, but when I got back there was scorch marks all over the mod, the drip tip melted, and the battery wrap had melted away too. No vent though luckily.

    Doesn't your mod have a time out? Mine does. Pretty stupid for a device that heats things up to not have a time out protector! Der times 10 to its manufacturer!

    Safer is not "Safe", just less risky than less safe. Had that been a mech mod in your cup holder and the fire button stuck.. you would have had a fire, not just a melted drip tip.

    Some mods let you change and even completely disable the timeout.

    Wish I remembered, I was just watching random review videos and thinking it wasn't that great an idea.

    Well there really is no reason to disable auto shut off. Anything that needs to be fired for more than 10 seconds to heat, is a coil that needs to be rebuilt. My avg draw is about 1.5 to 2.5 seconds, with a 1 second prepuff to heat up. Even mouth to lung i only managed about 7 seconds. But you are right, even if you can disable this on some, it is not safe.. it could auto fire, heat the atomizer, ignite the cotton.. and anything else near by

    LMFAO I did the same thing just last night. Melted the drip tip. I had to inspect the battery (it didnt vent) and mod, and atomizer. Only issue was melted drip tip. (and I have spares that came with it :p )

    And THIS is why we only recommend top grade, samsung, sony and lg batteries!!!! Fire button was on about 30 seconds.. or the time it takes to pee.

    This could easily happen, especially in the cupholder of a moving car. If it is resting on the fire button, but the car is moving and the mod is bouncing off the button slightly. Then the mod will be constantly firing for a few seconds, then bouncing off the fire button, then back on for a few seconds, then back off for a second or two. This has happened to me before with a regulated mod. Luckily I only got fried cotton and not a melted drip tip.

    Just yesterday while working doing Blacksmith and Welding on my Plow I was wearing gloves and must have hit the up button because I got one seriously warm vape~! Checked the wattage and said to myself well that is a little high for Aspire BVC coils in a Nautilus Mini! Chalk another one up to shit happens~! Why does it always seam to happen when I am waiting on an order which will arrive on Monday? Hey Murphy will you leave me alone?

    At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul!
