    Default blue light stays on?

    The LED light on my 901 mini sometimes stays on after I inhale, and when I take off the cartridge, the atomizer is still working and there is a buildup of vapor in it. Is this normal?

    When you say stays on do you mean for a second or for longer than this? If it the latter it faulty! There may be a bit of vapor if you take cartridge off straight after inhaling but it certainly shouldn't`t still be working! If It is would stop using as it sounds faulty/dangerous and would contact where you purchased it from. It sounds like the sensor that tells the battery you are inhaling and then sends power to the the atomizer is sticking?

    Mufftrix is right..Faulty battery for sure if the Led light stays on & it's still cooking the atomizer after you stopped inhaling!
    Gonna kill that atomizer real fast too if it goes on long enough..

    I can say that my 401 will stay on after hitting it and will often light up on its own (cooking the atomizer) if:

    I am in my car with my stereo up too loud.
    I am in a bar / club with loud music.
    I am in my car with the window down and get the 401 too close to the window.
    I am in my car with the AC on too high and get the 401 in the way of the vent.

    It seems that the switches are pretty sensitive and can't tell the difference between vacuum pressure / sound pressure / positive pressure.

    For my next cig I'll be getting a Janty Dura, I think. I'll be able to take that one out to clubs / bars and use it in my car without it freaking out since it's a manual switch.

    I'll keep the 401 for home / office use.

    I just got a new battery yesterday for my RN4072 and this is happening. I'm not used to keeping an eye on it, but every time I look down the light is on. It goes off if I puff on it again. I'm hoping it won't cook my new atomizer too! Guess I'll have to remember to check it each time after I puff.

    The Dura has an automatic only. The kiss box has a manual.

    Riddle--On the RN4072 battery, it is the pressure switch getting stuck on. All you have to do is blow in and out a few times to break it in. If that fails--take a paper clip and wiggle it up the battery hole (Steve gave me that tip months ago and it worked great). But the blowing in and out works very well. Try the paper clip if it does not. Hope that helps--Sun
