    For the first post I would share you this fail... This morning I had to fill up my my limitless rdta with my favorite e-juice (world famous custard Cairo fog) and try to take a hit... Well not really.. ouch! I forgot to put the cap on the rdta and burn my lips on the coil! It was pretty painful since I'm running my mod at 120w

    Second fail... Many many times with my first mod (kangertech single 18650 75w ) I've dropped the battery while trying to change it. I had to throw 3 good battery because of that... Shame on me

    My first big one was ordering my own custom made E-Liquids.

    10% of this, 5% of that and so on.

    By far, the most disgusting E-Liquid I have ever tasted:poop:

    More fails to comeo_O

    My biggest fail to date:

    I was so desperate to quit smoking that I went into the local B&M vape shop to get a mod. Talked to the guy behind the counter about how much I smoked and what my options were. After talking with him I paid $60 for an eGo AIO Box mod. No extra coils, no juice, just the mod.

    Wasn't until a week later that I found out those are $15-$20 online.

    That's my fault for jumping in without doing any research.

    A couple weeks ago i was at work driving to drop some doors off. I went to fill my tank up with my unicorn bottle, when i went to fill the filling nipple came of and i dumped 20ml of ejuice onto my mod and lap. Didnt have a napkin handy. Had a big wet spot around my crouch for the rest of the day. Plus i wasted alomost a full bottle of juice. I though i probably didnt have the nipple on all the way. So the next day, im at the shop and go to fill my tank again and it does the same thing. Luckily i wasnt sitting down and in all ended up on my mod and the ground. Another 20+ml waisted. :( Needless to say i never used that gorilla unicorn bottle again. The cap seems to not fit to snuggle. So in all i wasted probably close to 50ml of some pricey juice. Lesson learned, since then on i always make sure the cap is on tight. :teehee:

    I've had a few mistakes over the last 2 years, from burning my thumb, almost kissing the dragon, didn't notice my wattage accidentally got turned up and pulsing coils at 200w and having a nuclear meltdown.. But lately... Re-wicking my RDTA's... I forget that there is liquid in the tank and usually end up spilling some when not thinking about it >.<

    Hmm... hard to recall actually, but I think the worst was probably trying to take one of my old T3S's off a mod, but instead of loosening the atty from the mod, I just loosened the tank from the base of it... juice all over mod and me. And with those same T3S's, remembering to turn it upside down but forgetting to put my finger over the top of the mouthpiece before removing the base... juice everywhere. And Huck, I did that same thing, forgetting a wick, with one of those lil clearos. No draw at all. :D And once, with a kayfun, after coiling and wicking, I forgot to put the chimney back on, before reassembling the tank. I can't recall what exactly happened, but I remember being really unhappy about it. :D Oh, I know... when I went to fill it, it all ran out the driptip! :facepalm:

    And a couple times, stashed in my purse, my mod has "mysteriously" escalated from my usual 10w, to 20-25w, and I took a hit without realizing it. Fortunately it caused no damage, but it was a damn sight hotter than I like!

    Other than those, my usual fails are dropping the mod and breaking the damn acrylic driptip. I've had to replace 7-8 driptips.

    I burned a coil shaped mark in my thumb yesterday after I thought I waited long enough, and even blew on the claptons I was cleaning and dry firing. Tried to unscrew the deck from my mod and the coil burned the shit out of my thumb!
    Hours later, it still randomly started burning again, but it is fortunately better today.

    Jeesh! Those claptons take too long to heat up and cool down. :wait: I like the regular simple coils better as I haven't the patience for these claptons. I put that deck on my husband's mod, but I am still the one who installs, cleans, and rewicks all the RDA stuff cause he can't be bothered with it but asks where a "dripper" is whenever he isn't out and about.:cuss2:

    Husband is always dropping...

    I had to replace the glass and bend back the part that locks the top for his baby beast.
    I am so glad it comes with an extra glass.:inlove:

    Just one of the reasons I'm so pleased with my Achilles RDAs. Titanium is hard to break. :D Light, too. :)

    Going to a call and decide to fill my tank with a unicorn bottle. Proceed to squeeze the shit out of it and dump about 20 ml of very fragrant lemon cake juice all over my crotch. Have to go anyway and try to do interviews while reeking of gaggingly sweet lemons

    I just bought a G2 with oldest FW version known to man...and I don't own a PC to update it. Fortunately I got it updated today, thanks to my neighbor.
    Current version is 2.5.7
    Mine was 1.6.6
    I truly believe such things only happen to me.

    I've only been vaping for about two and half months, so fortunately, my only fail's so far have been, A. I told my wife to check out the huge cloud only to take to big of a draw and started hacking up a lung B. Not saturating the cotton enough in my RDA and getting that nasty dry cotton hit. I've done that a few times. And finally, C. I was hanging at my local vape shop and one of the employees was vaping his Maxo at like 250 watts. So I decided to get brave and go from my comfort zone of around 65 watts and try a hit on my iStick 200 at the max. Needless to say, it was a caugh fest and in front of a fairly packed shop!

    At a high end shoe store trying on some super expensive (for me) shoes while dressed nicely. Put my alien and baby beast in my pocket and proceed to try the shoes. Get done and leave grabbing my mod for a vape. Realize my tank came open while moving around and dumped a full tank of high vg juice in my pocket.

    I was drinking beer last night and dripping in the dark. I made quite the mess with the juice. It got all over the RDA cap, mod, coffee table, jeans, who knows what else. I forgot to buy paper towels yesterday and usually keep a couple with me to wipe drips. I now see what happens when I don't constantly wipe my RDA. lol

    My biggest fail is 99% of the DIY juice I make. Other people like them. I'm just too picky

    My worst (most painful) was not paying attention while dripping and watching a movie. Took a hit without looking and realized (about the time I smelled burning flesh) that I didn't put the top back on my RDA... Not much fun.

    Also accidentally dripped some 60mg nic base one time. That will not ever happen again I can assure you,

    I caught myself just in time, a few times, before kissing those coils! Sorry to hear that you didn't. ROFL!
    I am glad I don't have any 60 mg nic anywhere near me while I am dripping. Ima put that stuff in my safe when I start DIYing. Got kids, and cats, and dog. hehe

    Okay... So a few weeks ago I bought my 2md RDA the Goon 24mm and the owner at my LVS sold me on these big ass staggered staple fused Clapton coils, because "they'll fit" lol... So I put 2 of these coils on this deck... Too low for my alien to fire. No problem, take one of the coils out after adjust watts to around 150. So, I take the coil out, dry fire without cotton for a second just to make sure it will fire and it does. I wick and juice. Put the top cap back on, all of this inside the vape store BTW but the owner was in the back doing whatever they do back there banging prostitutes, underground poker ring maybe IDK. Anyway, he walks out as I take my first hit off the new RDA with the new coil... And he says, "holy shit bro, that fireballed" as I'm coughing my lungs up with this burning sensation in my mouth, throat and chest. He then explained that the wattage was too high. That scared me away from the atty completely for about 3 days before I would even try it again... I don't fire a new build above 30 watts for the first time now and I increase from there lol

    "Some people call me a redneck, and some people call me a hick, some people call me an asshole, and some people call me just dick. I'm a hellbilly."

    Taking risks! LOL I usually start too low with watts, but that is cause im scared. hehe

    I installled my first coils on an RDA at my local shop and they told me to start low, but when that thing was all snapping and popping I almost went through the roof. They laughed at me and told me that it just happens like it is ok to have a snappy vape with juice popping up. I figured out pretty quickly that if I install, strum, and wick it right that it certainly does not! I think they just wanted to see this old lady get startled, just to have a laugh.

    I forgive the guy cause next time I went in for juice, he gave me an extra and pretty top cap for that RDA. Their house juice is top notch and the price is right too. And they now have local beer. Best place I have been to, even if they laughed at me. :rolleyes:

    Well, the main fail I can think of was not funny, but worth sharing anyway.

    I have some memory issues, and get confused quite easily, and think this is what led to what happened.

    I had been using a Noisy cricket, which is a series unregulated mod. I fancied using my Abaddon, which is dual parallel, so picked that up, and put some batteries in.
    I put the door on, and immediately the mod started to get hot. I am talking VERY fast. I got the door off, and my window was open, so threw it out of the window. Looking back, I should not of attempted to get the door off, but in my panic I did.

    I had accidentally put the batteries in series, and I am not sure how the circuit was completed without the fire button being pressed, but it was when I put the door on.
    (EDIT: thinking of the way this parallel mod is wired/set up actually explains how the circuit was completed.) The heat was immense, and after about an hour when I went to get the mod from outside, the wrappers had actually partially melted. The batteries hadn't vented though, which amazed me (Samsung 25R's, the original blue ones, rewrapped).

    After this happened, I make sure even more than I did before that my batteries are going in the correct way. I did not realise at the time it could cause anything bad to happen, as I had seen the video of the noisy cricket with the batteries in the wrong way just not working. I gather the way a parallel mod is wired caused this to happen.

    Bloody hell, that is scary!

    I usually have at least 5 mods ready to use, with batteries in, but when I hear things like this it makes me worry. When I used to stay in the spare room with my Ex, we had a fold out double bed, and after vaping I would put the mod just under the bottom of the bed before going to sleep.

    If that happened, I would of had a very toasty bum! Goes to show too how regulated mods can, and do, fail.

    Do you ever get head butted in the face or even the arm while trying to drip? Messy.
    Mine like to head butt my arm while I drip. Drips on my pants or the table when they first started doing it, but now I know it's coming and compensate.

    well well well.... big facepalm to me today (And I literally did it) I just realized that I was putting the barrel of my indestructible RDA upside down. I was wondering why I had so much airflow with muted flavor sometime,,,

    I made a sad but still funny mistake this morning. I was barely awake (sleep around 11:30 last night and awake at 4:30) I go to take bus to go at work. I take few hit with my goon and a get a dry hit ... Crap I need to drip... Open the bottle and drip.. well but don't know why but now my mod is really juicy (so juicy that I could drop it ...) I'm like wtf what I made... Now that I see in my hand my barely new bottle of juice was barely upside down... Now I made a pound of juice on the ground.

    When I was holding my mod in-between my legs in the car the watts maxed out at 220. I wasn't paying attention and when I fired it POOF, cotton burnt up fast. God that is a taste I will never forget. :blech:
