    i had this problem when i first used an 18490 aw imr high drain battery 3.7V 1100mah, it won't fire the atomizer and the battery will heat up. i have to remove the battery. I'm using a twisted coil rebuildable atomizer at 0.7 ohms.
    oh and i'm using an avenger mod e cig. a mech.

    idk how to fix this. :( is it because my ohms is to low?

    You are drawing 5.2A and producing 19.X watts. Yup your coil is a tad on the low side. Ohm's Law Calculator
