    I recently had an atomizer go "atomic" on me. I was vaping a bit, setting down, vaping a bit when I noticed a burning smell. Picked up my Joye 51o and it was burning hot!! I immediately disconnected the (manual) battery. The atty still looked OK so blew it out, rinsed it in very hot water, blew out again and let it dry for a full 48 hours. I tried it again, briefly, and it still seems to work just fine. I still use the battery that was originally attached to it and have had no problems with it. Button never sticks, etc.

    So my question is: is that atty safe to use? I keep having visions of my e-cig exploding in my face!

    Honestly Jg, it sounds like the battery kicked in and stayed on somehow.

    lol! :p OK, I think what you are saying is I'm being a bit too paranoid about it. But seriously, should I toss it? I hate to trash something that seems to work. It probably WAS just my manual button temporarily sticking (BUT the blue LED was NOT on when I noticed the problem...)

    yeah if it hasn't happened again I wouldn't worry about it, I on the other hand have an atomizer that just gets hot because it feels like it doesn't produce vapor and doesn't like people, small animals or children.. I should probably toss that one I think

    or maybe we could find something more useful to do with them like baby nukes.

    Could it have been the automatic cleaning cycle?

    Automatic Cleaning Cycle for a PV? Worst idea ever.

    Do a search here on "cleaning cycle" or "self cleaning". There's mention of them for autos but don't know what type the OP has.... "Atomic" would be a common adjective when it happens it seems. Don't know if all models have them or whether it was done away with but it's been mentioned in the last month. Here's an earlier thread on it:

    I, thoroughly, looked throught that thread. The only model specifically mentioned was the 901. Since I have a 510, I am still questioning whether a "cleaning cycle" even occurs with my model? Anyone know the answer?

    I have had that happen with my 510, a few times. Haven't thrown any away. They all work fine. I figured it was a cleaning cycle.
    Read the above article and it says that no the manuals do not do this, huh? Guess we should remove the bats when it starts this. I do hit mine kinda heavy sometimes.

    Going back to the OP, I have to agree that it sounds more like a temp issue with the battery switch being stuck. You are fine to continue use on the atomizer.

    I am not aware of Joye 510 Manual Batteries having an automatic cleaning cycle. And it really makes no sense. I mean ... How does a battery know if an atomizer needs cleaning ??

    Vape away ... You're fine.
