    Hey I just bought a coil art Mage tricker kit and I've been having trouble with the button getting really warm after chain vaping I've also noticed arching marks that seem to come back right after cleaning, my batteries I use are LG hb6's and my builds have run from .2 down to .15 I've taken the mod completely apart and cleaned it with alcohol which helped for about a day I've sanded the contact so it's flat checked the atty for shorts I'm kinda stumped here all I can really think is it must just be the low build mixed with the chain vaping heating things up or else the button just isn't built for that low of builds any input is welcome

    Sounds like you're drawing more amps than the switch can handle.

    That would be my guess as well. Is it a spring or magnet switch?

    I'll third that proposal. 28A is a lot of current through magnets. That alone explains the heat. The arching itself is also developing heat and voltage drop.

    I think chain vaping a .15 will probably heat up any button in a tube mech. Might be best to run a few setups in an effort to let them cool off between Vapes.

    Yes, it sounds like the combination of high wattage and chain-vaping is heating things up. You could consider a TC setup as a backup setup on a regulated mod and chain vape on that, secure in the knowledge that your temperatures will not rise above the "safe" limit you set, also less chance of something going wrong.... TC might be perfect for you and the wattages you are running, and plenty of decent TC mods can be obtained at fairly reasonable prices. Good luck, but really, I think your best bet is to have a couple setups, and rotate them.

    Best of luck,

    Anna

    Careful, heat can cause them to demagnetize

    Thanks for the help I just got a vgod clone in and I also have a parrallel box mod so I think I will try swapping them around between vapes
