    I don't know if this is an atty problem or a juice problem. My atty has been heating up too fast, it feels hot to touch when I take draws. It also takes a pretty hard pull just to get any vape. I actually start to feel lightheaded after one or two draws because it's so hard to pull anything up. I'm using the same type atty and same type juice that I have been using for a while, and just started happening. Same problem after cleaning the atty and even trying a new one, same style. My mod is mechanical so I opened it up, but it's clean too.

    So...clean parts, same parts, same juice...any ideas?

    Nope, you're not even saying which atomizer so it's hard to guess wildly.... :)

    Can you tell us what your hardware is? If you have an adapter, it may be clogged. Have you checked your voltage settings? They may be way up on accident. It seems like something is blocked somewhere.

    Well, it's a simple 3.7V box mod, no settings. This is happening with a commercial passthru too though. The atty's are 808D, 2.6-2.8 ohm standard clearomizers from ecigexpress. No adapters, I made my mod with an 808D connector. I have an A7 RBA coming in the mail, so I only need these to last a couple for days. I was just wondering if anybody knew of any weird issues it might be. I'll take it apart again tonight and reclean to see if that helps...

    Do you have a multimeter? Just because the specs say that your atty is 2.6-2.8Ω, it is not always the case. QC. It sounds like your atty may be running hot because of lower ohms. No way of knowing without a multimeter, though.

    Multimeter has it at 3.3-3.5 ohms. I didn't realize it could be so off. Think that might be why it's running hot at least. The draw/pull eased up, I don't know what I did, but it doesn't pull so hard anymore.

    It also seems to be burning out the seal on my connector. Took the atty off today, and I see black gunk all in the threads. Funny, it doesn't seem to have a leak.
