    Have it, too: atomizer running hot without getting vapor (fluid loaded, feeding is in contact, batteries are fine). Did already try various cleaning steps (alcohol, pressurized air) of no avail. I certainly intend to exchange it, as long as warranty lasts. Good luck to you.

    Yes, this is a weird situation, but it does happen. If the atomizer has a warranty, replace it immediately. As you have found, it is not possible to revieve this type of patient.

    Would you mind me asking what type atomizer it is and where it came from? I recently got 10 atomizers from a company (I will leave it at that for now, as the company is trying to make it right, I think I got a bad batch)...and after the primer was gone, the vapor left as well...it will make vapor every other drag, but not every drag. There is a problem with the wick (after taking one apart, I have a feeling the wick doesn't run through or even to the bridge and the wick is very gummed up anyways). So after a day, the vapor drops to little if anything. I'm just curious if you are having same problem with same people. PM me if you like. Oh, the kick is, even with dripping, I couldn't get vapor consistently, hency why I figured it was a wicking problen (and yes, i tried EVERY battery in the house, it's not a short in the battery).

    Mine to. I got a DuraC and the Janty atty didn't hardly produce right out of the box. I have been using the backup and now it works about like the other, heats a lot but barely any vapor. I should be getting a replacement today for the Janty branded one but I will not have a bacckup now. If it wasn't for my N-Pro I would be out of luck for vaping all together. I cleaned it a few times and it came back but not any more. By the way neither of them have the dragonfly wing things hanging out of the wick.

    I have to think it's there, just not hanging out...

    I'm about done with this thing. I dont' know what to do. My first atomizer died within hours, now the second one is acting strange...

    First it was getting hot (VERY hot) but little or no vapor, now it cuts off within about a second or a second and a half. They atty does not get hot any more beacuse I can't draw on it for more than a second and a half. I thought the cutoff was from the battery, but both batteries do this now.

    I had such high hopes when I ordered my 510 but compared to my 901 it is a piece of garbage. I already sent back the first atomizer and will give it one more try when I get my replacement, but so far I aboslutley hate this thing.

    Even when it worked I got at most 1/4th the battery life I get from my 901, and at most comparable vapor production. Now it's not even smokable.

    Thank god this wasn't my first e-cig or I would still be on analogs.

    I got my replacement, infact he sent two. Good thing because one died within one minute but the other is fine. The spare that I was using has not gone cold but has quit producing the vapor that it had been at first. I think that perhaps they did have some bad ones produced for them or by them, I am confused by where they say they come from. I now have two out of four that just don't work worth a crap and one that is completely dead. I am sure glad I got the warranty with this thing and have a spare 4081 to smoke when it goes down again if it does. I have got to say however that when it works it has a throat hit that is beyond compare even from the 4081.

    Sorry to hear the probs ya'll are having w/ the 510's but at least I now know I wasn't totally off my nut. I was so taken with the 510 initially that I ordered 3 additional kits and 4 extra attys. Supplier even threw in an extra atty. I lumped everything together and started going through it all.

    I quit after the 5th atty suffered from everything you all described. I couldn't imagine for the life of me what I could be doing wrong. I took all the troubleshooting steps planetofthevapes described and then some. Contacted the supplier, agreed it was weird but replaced all 11 anyway. The replacements are all functioning for now.

    Don't know 'bout the batteries digdreams, I've been lucky in that respect. I will say that the charge on the new batteries doesn't seem to hold as long as my original 2.

    Suffice to say I've a whole new appreciation of, and relationship with, my 901's and 4075's!
