    Hi

    AVS is month or two old but been using it for maybe 7-10 days because my
    attys (510) die inside it. Last one was HV and running i on 6V for hardly 2 days
    and died.
    I must doing something wrong but can't figure what. I didn't overtight the atty and it didn't get dry.
    The worst thing is that i run out of 510-s and it will take a while to get some.
    So in the meantime if anybody have some advice - great.

    tnx

    You may be running it too hot for the resistance of the attys -- you need and XHV for the 7.4V stacked and a regular HV for the standard setup -- I gave up on the 510s and do nothing than the 808 cartos myself now and, crap, it works and the taste is good (20ml+/- of juice and I change them) so why frack with it I figure?:2c: I am awaiting the lower resistance cartos so I can try using the AVS with an 18650.......

    I tried first 3.7v on HV atty but it didn't work. very low or no vapor

    Yep you need LR for 3.7v IMO

    yea i know but my attys burning so fast on 6v that i tried from despair.

    everything is great for a day maybe two and then dead atty. So go figure...
    I don't know.... maybe bad attys

    Try atties from different manufacturers / batches to see if it's not an avs problem. We all have / heard stories of bad atties (even from the best and most reputable sites/sellers)

    I don't think it's AVS problem it is pure mechanic, metal on metal etc.
    keep thinking that somehow the pressure on atty is too hard and i have short.
    Now i'm waiting for iken's HV 510-s to get back in stock. allegedly they are the best.

    if you think that you press the atomizer harder than the apropriate, then please unscrew the pin of the connector, put through it an o-ring that has 1,5 width and 3mm hole and screw the pin again to the connector. That way the pin will come lower so you can screw atomizer as hard as you want Zu

    Guys I need your help ! ... I have some new LR atties from E.M. (901 & 510) ... When I use them alone (w/t AVS) they work great ... Nice throat hit and nice vapor production ...
    When I use them inside the AVS tank, I have no throat hit and only some vapor ...(especially with 510 attie)
    I metered the ouptut power before avs and it is 4.2Volt
    I metered the resistance of the attie inside AVS and it is 2Ohms

    I dont really know what I am doing wrong !!!

    I think that I solved my problem ... There must be the upper oring ... I didnt press it with my finger to come close to the avs cap because I thougt that the upper cap can do this for me... So I hadnt shield from air the whole unit ... I think that now is ok ! back to vaping again :) :) :)

    Hey everyone, just wanted to mention that the quality of vape I was getting from my GGTS (using AVS, 808 cartos, 2 3.2v tenergy lifepos, fuse kit) was quickly degrading until it was like vaping a low voltage standard e-cig if it was working at all. No matter how I cleaned the contacts or what I adjusted it just wasn't satisfying me if I could even get it to work. I kept trying to figure out which connection wasn't good but the GGTS was testing good continuity and voltage without a load. Then I thought must be bad batches of cartos but they all tested fine. I put nolox on the threads thinking for sure it would work but still nothing. After searching the forum I found somewhere to try doubling the spring in the fuse kit....... WOW! What a difference. It's like a completely diff unit now that completely satisfies me every time I hit the button. So I really think it would be important to note this when receiving a fuse kit and Imeo it would be great if you made a sticky so it would be easy for everyone to find this info and solve this problem which is probably going on undiagnosed for many.

    new fuses have 2 springs now Dee. Thanks for telling me to stick it, I will do it right now:)

    Nice to see you around buddy

    Another thing I wanted to mention about this issue is that when I didn't know what the problem was and would get it to work a little the atty or carto would 'die' in a day or two when in reality those Attys and cartos were probably fine but because of the resistance from the fuse they didn't have enough voltage to burn off dried e-liquid from the atty. Hope this helps some of you that are experiencing problems with this amazing device.

    Thanks Imeo! Thats good to hear! I hadnt been around much because your GGTS is such a great device I no longer search the forums! Except once in awhile to see what you have up your sleeves next!

    The single spring built up enough resistance due to oxidation (since it worked much better the first day I used fuse kit) to lower voltage to atty so much that it wouldn't vaporize e-liquid. I'm no electronics master but I am a union electrician and that's what it seems like after all the voltage/resistance/continuity tests I tried on it.

    Dee, maybe liquid stays unburned, stucks on atomizer's wire and build resistanse to atty. I followed your advice to stick the thread about fuse because if you had problem trying to find info then other people would have similar problem

    Yup, that's what I'm thinking. But doubling the fuse fixed everything. Runs like a champ every time button is pressed and cartos back to lasting a week. I tried one of the "dead" cartos and guess what?? It worked again now that fuse is doubled up. Thanks for the sticky and I hope word gets out to those frustrated who think it's something wrong w your device. This thing is built to last!
