    Anyone else have this happen? Stopped firing after a couple weeks use and never took it above 30w or put on an unregulated mod

    That looks ugly. Not sure what your build was (ohm) but mine are .9 and 1.0 and have not needed to use above 18 watts.

    I got one of those but didn't really like it at all....gonna see if someone might want to trade it on the classies for a Ehpro Kayfun Lite plus...thats what I am mainly using now. I just liked the idea of a glass tank but wayyy to airy for me.

    Looks like your coil shorted. Reason unknown, seeing as it's removed in the picture.

    I've run my Lemos at 40+ Watts and the insulators are as good as new.

    Yea you shorted the build and it arched your deck and melted your delrin...put an ohm meter on your build to make sure they are not shorted to avoid this in the furture...

    What mod were you using? I find it odd that a regulated mod would not detect a short that would melt your delrin like that. Also, what build were you running? I find that these Kayfun type tanks tend to perform best at around 1.1-1.3 ohms at 15 watts on regulated mods, and around .7 on a mech. That's just my opinion, of course, but I get plenty of flavor and vapor running in that range.

    Edit: fixed my thought.... :blink:

    That's a new one. What resistance was your build and how much power were you running to it???

    I don't see any daylight between your positive and negative blocks. Did the center block get twisted and short out?

    Looks like daylight to me, any non clone regulated mod wouldn't fire if there was a short?

    Not really well focused but okay.... Anyway the burnt witness mark shows obvious coil arcing.

    edit: oh wait, this a lemo, coil sits up top. Never mind me...
