Not sure how to use my voltmeter
You've all been so helpful to the other people asking questions on this thread, I was wondering if I could ask for some help as well
The picture of my voltmeter is attached, as a new forum member I can't post URLs yet.
I'm trying to figure out if my 401 atty is worth trying to clean out, or if it's just DEAD. I'm not sure what settings I should have it set on, what that blue wheel does (if it's even something I need to mess with), and which out of the THREE holes should the black and red probes be plugged in to?
Also, I noticed that it seems like attys for different models should read different things. Is there some place I can find that information? I have quite a few different models.
Any help you can offer would be great!

Black bottom, red middle.
I believe most are around 3.something. Someone will be along soon with the real numbers.

from what i have read previously this thread is the resource for the numbers. though not a lot of people have posted their findings.
the previous poster had it right where to put your leads. the center knob in the picture is right to test up to 200ohms, pointed straight down.
turn it on and touch the tips of the leads together. it should read something less than an ohm. this is the resistance in the cables and leads themselves. now touch one lead to the center of the atty and the other one to the threads. there will be a little bit of jumping around and jot down the number when it settles down. it may flop from like 3.0 to 3.1 or something, this is normal. now you subtract the resistance from the cables and leads and post the number up here. if its a 510 it should be close to 2.5ohms.
if you can test all your atty's and put the numbers up here as i dont recall seeing too many 401 atty figures in here.

newbie needs HELP
Hey guys, i'm a first time e-cig user and after finally getting mine in the mail i was instantly in love and put down fags for what seems for good. However, on my first night of vaping a friend spilled beer on my e cig, but afterwards it seemed to work fine until the next day where from then on its producing no vapour. The weird thing is i will leave it by itself for about an hour or so and take a draw and get one hit of vape then no more, i've tried brand new carts and re charged the batts both of which are brand new so i gather it must have been the atomizer that has failed. Any thoughts? Should I attempt at cleaning the atomizer or maybe work at getting a warranty replacement (I have a feeling Gamucci the supplier is too shady to reimburse) or just get a new one?

that sounds more like a battery issue man.

Tried my black Evo atty an it read 3 ohms.....minus the 0.3 reading for the leads touched together = 2.7ohms. Sound about right?
