    Mine stopped working after three weeks. Red light at reading 0.0ohms. Or randomly some other very low ohm reading. Replaced o-ring with the one from Home Depot, no luck. Tried various tanks, cartos, pro tank. Fiddled with everything I can. Innokin told me they'd replace it only if the vendor that I got it from sent it back. Problem is the vendor I got it from closed two days after I bought it. Well didn't close but changed locations and changed their name and now they are a "different company" and won't help anyone with products from their previous company. Anybody have any suggestions?

    Sometimes my advice may not be the best, but if you have absolutely exhausted all courteous options....I find shady companies usually become quite cooperative when forced with BBB complaints. Assuming the company is US based.

    It was called Puresmoker here in Nashville. Closed down and re-opened down the road as VolVapor. The guy at VolVapor told me himself that Puresmoker was his company as well so it's not a secret or anything, they just said it's separate companies and they can't help anyone with products from Puresmoker. So Puresmoker still has a tech support email and I told them the problem and also told them that Innokin responded to me and said they'd replace it for free as long as the vendor sends it back. It can't be me sending it back, has to be the vendor. The reponse I got was something akin to...that's like buying something from k-mart and then asking target to replace it for you. I don't wanna slam the place if this is some kind of legal issue but, technically I would think if they really wanted to they could send it to Innokin for me. I don't know. Not happy.

    I fully agree, the SVD rocks! It's reliable, robust, cheap and equipped with all the functions you may need.
    The only thing I wasn't so so happy about was the unpolished look. But then I took my drill, a polishing tip, some abrasive paste for cars and made it all shiny

    But did you do the light saber conversion as shown in my avatar? Really ups the available vaping voltage!

    I have had this mod covered with sandy/oily substances from holding it in my dirty hands and riding shotgun unprotected in my pocket, quick scrub with a tooth brush and it was back to brand new every time. I've dropped it on carpeted floors and from low distances inside a few times, but today it really took a wallop

    The SVD plummeted to the pavement from a height of about 5ft today and landed with a straight THUD! It bounced around a few times before finally resting next to a bunch of kanger T3S pieces. The T3S didn't fare so well but that's expected, it hit so hard the tank snapped off at the base, even the coil chimney and flavor wick were thrown helplessly onto the pavement. However as if by magic when i picked it up there was about 1.5ml of juice still left in the top half for salvaging!

    However the SVD took this in stride. There were a few scratches from the mayhem but they are not even able to be photographed that's how insignificant they are. The center pin is perfectly fine(most likely due to the eGo threaded T3S which is why i use eGo tanks in the first place), the LCD screen is still perfect, and all of the buttons still function like new. I threw a spare T3S on it and vaped like nothing ever happened.

    Those who may question the quality of SVD's from fasttech may rest assured this is a quality mod!
    UPDATE!
    I wanted to comment on one other thing that i have noticed about the SVD. The + and - buttons are also coated brass and have had their plating wear off to a brass color. Personally i don't care cuz this actually looks good in my opinion.

    Other than that SVD has been a great mod so far. Eventually one day i will most likely destroy it somehow and be sure to let you know what it cannot handle also!

    I was also going to do this but in my area vaping is not very popular. I actually find people tend to be enticed by my mod and ask alot of questions. I have already convinced about 5 people to start vaping, 2 of them are buying SVD's! or vamo's or something. My hope is that the sheer "coolness" of these things helps them forget about old smokey.

    I am starting a vaping revolution at my workplace. (12 step recovery center) Out of the 30ppl here 2 do not smoke, but i am slowly helping people order batteries/mods and encouraging getting off analogues.
