    Posting this to let others know: Twice today, June 10, 2020, my Pulse Dual squonk mod fired itself while sitting next to me. I have the Pulse V2 squonk mounted on it. First time, it was loaded with juice and ignited the coils, burning the cotton and I could see the angry red glow through the vents. I had broken everything down, cleaned it all in prep for rewicking. While it sat there, again the mod fired itself until it timed out.
    THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS. I am NOT going to use this mod any more and I seriously hope someone from Vandy Vape sees this and takes remedial action before some one is injured or a fire started.
    As far as I'm concerned? I'll not be buying anymore Vandy Vape hardware.

    Have you contacted Vandy Vape for hopefully a refund or replacement? This is probably the bet way to get them to "notice you." Sorry that happened and glad you are ok.

    A friend of mine had his do the same thing, he contacted Vandy Vape and he was asked to return it. They sent it back after they repaired it with no mention as to what caused it, the mod works fine now.

    This is a know issue with this, it will occur sooner or later, liquid dripping to fire button due to bad construction will cause it to fire. On warranty they will refund after that (like mine) is trash, lasted 3 months

    Ya, it could be e-liq has gotten in to the switch, or it could be the contacts in the switch have gone bad. I have a mod that did this to me (either wouldn't stop firing or it would fire by itself), and I tried to clean out the fire button with contact cleaner. Maybe the cleaner fluid couldn't get inside the switch body, or the switch was just too far gone. I couldn't fix it, but I kept the mod because I like the look of it, I just don't use it anymore. Kind of a shame, it was my first VW mod and I really liked it. RIP 134 Mini.
