    One of the downsides to the M201 is the ease with which e-liquid drains into the battery and causes it to start cutting out. A regular blow job and cleaning out with a rolled corner of a tissue, the atty and the charger should get the same treatment, plus approx' horizontal vaping and storage, usually keeps it going without any vapus interuptus.

    But, I had one of my 3 batteries-in-rotation, go into cut-out mode yesterday, something they never do, even when chain vaping. Other symptoms were: Atty getting hotter than usual and the draw harder than usual. Did my clean out thing with a tissue and blow job but it still cut out. I checked it out closely with an illuminated magnifier and found it still dirty with e-liquid gunk in places that the tissue can't reach and stuck to this, lint from spare batts being carried in my pocket clogging the side holes.

    Solution: Used a nail brush on the face of the battery and pushed the bristles through the side holes. Easy draw now, cooler atty and no more cut-outs...... sorted. :)

    PS: First tried to use a steel sowing pin to ungunk the batt....... don't! Unless you want really hot fingers. :D

    Say "I blew it out" Not "Blow Job" you're killing me!

    Is that because you don't like them, or because you do but don't get any? :rolleyes:

    LOL! Appears you know exactly what your saying. Just thought you might need a bit of help with English. I promise to mind my own business and hope I did not insult you in anyway sir.

    Thanks for the tip about checking the charger connector. I just started vaping instead of smoking and I quickly noticed that juice got between the battery and atty. Now, when I have to charge a battery, I stuff the corner of a napkin down into it and give it a good twist. Repeat until no juice turns up on napkin.
