    Hi all...I'm working on my first RBA. (ATA_T) I've made my wick, oxidized it, wrapped the coil (drill bit) but am having issues. I don't have pic right now, (at work) but am having problems testing my work. The only manual type of battery I have is a standard joye 510 type of battery with the button on it. When I hook up the battery, it fires automatically. Is this because of a short somewhere?

    On a side note, is the positive bolt that runs thru the tank supposed to be insulated? It looks like mine used to have somthing there but I can't tell (it's used). I'm thinking that this might be my problem. Any assistance would be great! Thanks!

    Yes the positive post should be insulated from the body of the atomizer. And you are just asking to have a battery blow up in your hand putting that on a device with no short circuit protection and such a low mAH, batteries don't do well when they discharge too fast.

    You've shorted your Ego battery. Mine did the same thing while I was vaping a Chobra and the coil shorted. The Ego battery would fire right away as soon as anything was connected.

    mine has a little plastic rubbery peice under the actual deck, just under the nuts. you really cannot see this piece unless you take it apart and look under the deck. and definately do not use an ego battery on this devise, you really should use some aw imr batteries. also a meter to check your ohms and voltages, or a device like a provari.
