    It's simply a setting that allows you to use the voltage and current of the battery directly without any boosting or bucking of the voltage. It bypasses the circuitry of the mod. It's used primarily when you have a dripper or rebuildable setup that needs more than 75 watts of regulated power.

    So no need to use it with my Kangertech RTA I guess.

    I read somewhere that it doesn't completely bypass all the circuitry. There are still supposed to be some protections in place, not like a mech mod. Right?

    Not unless your RTA needs more than 75 watts...

    Short circuit, battery safety, shorted atomizer, and low atomizer resistance are still enabled.

    Thanks. I'm guessing that comes at a cost, ie; voltage drop. I have one of those gathering dust, never tried the bypass mode, will have to see how it performs.
