    well after that arc burn it seemed to work fine so i forgot all about it
    lately i have been getting my finger zapped every once in a while, i recoiled the strata making sure the dual coils make contact only with the posts, but the problem presists, sometimes the electric current my finger feels really sting.

    im sure its not the coil, so im going to try and use a different drip tip, hoping that will fix the problem.
    after i made the dual coil, i couldnt put the top cap on, bet it was because i didnt do a full wrap on the two other posts, but a little manhandle took care of the problem. next time i will remember that ^_^

    Well after changing the drip tip to a shorter one, Im still getting shorts, i really dont know what else to look for, the drip tip is definitely not making contact with the center post, and i made sure the coil dosent touch anything. :-\

    A short is the positive touching the negative, since you've eliminated the tip culprit. Then look to the coil shorting or shorting against the walls or the outer posts. There is a third possibility, check in your juice well to make sure there is no metal debris down in there somehow, the center post is the positive. After that, move down to the battery, check for any rips and tears in its wrapper that could cause a short. Shorts can't happen in the button since its a negative ground, but shorts will make the button hot as the shorting causes tremendous loads and the returning current to the battery negative's last stop is the button which it heats up.

    i rotate between two batterys, both of their wrapping are intact, so its not that.
    i checked the coils, moved them a bit just to make sure they are not touching anything, this is my 3d build that im getting those shorts. and its starting to be a pain really, i have no idea whats wrong. sometimes i feel the spring getting sticky when i press the button, like its getting magnitized in some way.
    i highly debout i got metal debris in the juice well, since this problem seems to follow me even after i change the coil, i actually put the mod aside today, those shorts really hurt, takes the joy out of using it, as much as i like it, every time i fire it up, im just waiting to get zapped, or i get a feeling like the mod is getting hot/button is getting hot, although the battery stays pretty cool. seems its always the lowest point of contact of my hand with the mod that get shocked, always the lowest where my hand makes contact above the button. pretty discouraging.

    funny enough im half way to getting my mechanical engineering degree, so i consider myself a pretty techincal person, yet i cant understand why would a short would happen, it should be really basic things to check as you said, but everything just seems fine.

    It's a mystery short alright. Shorts are a real simple law of electricity and you're definitely having them if the button is sticking (tell tale sign of a short). Since you eliminated the tip as the potential culprit and still can't find it, the only thing would be to send it in and we'll get you taken care of!
