    Blinking light on the KR808 means the battery is dead.

    In the manual for the Yeti, it says the blinking light means it's cleaning the atomizer. But it says nothing about how to tell if the battery is dead.

    Can any one explain how to tell the difference?

    yeti=510 and yep the battery needs to be recharged. I have no idea what they would even be talking about when it comes to cleaning the atty. I think something got lost in the translation.

    A loooong time ago there were PVs that had automatic cleaning cycles, during which the battery did indeed blink wildly, too. Or so I have been told - I've never seen one of those myself.

    I don't see how an atomizer could even say that it is cleaning itself? The only thing I would think it would be doing is heating up in cycles to burn it off. Cleaning atomizers is just a waste of time anyways. Atomizers last about a month.

    Well, it was in really old models, they pretty much did a short dry burn, only since they did it withouth warning, they usually weren't dry :O

    Cleaning them is not a waste of time, BTW. Without they may last 1-2 months, with a bit of cleaning (really not much) at least twice as much. Sounds good to me :D

    Could you tell me what method you use to clean your atty's? I have done the hot water method and also 80% rubbing alcohol. Also doing a slight burn off after when it's clean until I just barely smell the "metal" smell. These methods don't seem to prolong life they seem good for eliminating previous eliquid residue but as far as atomizers go I get about a month's use with moderate to heavy vaping.

    I blow them out occasionally, when I notice they become slightly harder to draw. If that doesn't work, hot water bath and blowing them out very thoroughly. If they are still hard to draw, I put their bottom in vodka overnight. (I could of course put them in completely, but that uses up valuable vodka :D) Rubbing alcohol isn't good for the finish, it can give you neat steel coloured atties no matter what color they were before.
    If they don't produce proper vape, I dry burn them long enough for them to go red hot after a second or two, which may take a bit. It also stinks, so put some clean PG into them, and blow it out after at least 10 minutes. Careful, this can kill atties, but by the time that becomes necessary, they should long be past one month of age - or you are using a particularly nasty liquid.

    Atties also seem to last longer if used in rotation, seems they really like it when they can cool off completely once in a while.
