    hi y'all, i've been vaping for a year, and yesterday i had a problem with my mod.
    It fell and the bottom door is a bit loose, and i think the pins are not connecting with the batteries as they should, i even had three "short" WARNING.
    Today i putted pressure on the door to put it in place, and it seems fine till now.
    Sigelei doors are not very good.

    What should i do? Am i in danger?
    I know some short causes are more dangerous than others, atleast i read it somewhere.

    My english is not the best, hope you understand.

    Best Regards,
    Killerbuds

    Setup:
    Sigelei Kaos Spectrum
    Drop RDA
    Samsung 25R 18650

    I'd be looking for a new mod. Once those things suffer a fall and start acting wierd, they rarely heal themselves.

    I agree with asbestos, once damaged mods rarely ever act right, sometimes even after repairs.

    First you have to make sure where the error is
    -does the drop rda produce a "short" warning on a different mod?
    -does a different atomizer produce the same "short" warning on the sigelei?
    (if you don't have 2 mods and 2 atomizers maybe ask a friend or in a vape shop)

    On a side not: are you charging your batteries in that mod or do you have an external charger?
    This particular mod doesn't do balance charging properly and you should never charge your batteries in it.

    Hi, i have two atomizers, it was causing a short in both, i even wrapped new coils for both.
    I use an external charger, and i never charged the batteries in the mod, the battery wrap is good , as i mentioned the bottom door was a bit loose and the negative pin Wasnt touching the batteries maybe that was causing the short. By the end do the day im Going to the vapeshop.
    Thank you

    Take a look at the Aegis and Aegis Legend as well on yt. Better devices imo than the Drag.

    While the drag is durable, there are better options at that price point. For durability, Letitia hit the nail on the head, the Aegis line by geekvape is in a class all their own.

    I would love to have a Geekvape Legend, and it is certainly durable.

    I would keep a close eye on your mod, and travel to the brick and mortar sounds totally reasonable to me. Hopefully they can help you determine if it's something electrical in the mod (sounds like it) or something easily remedied. So, there's no harm going at all, although I too would be likely to replace it ASAP if they can't help. I don't adore intermittent electrical shorts (although, interestingly, you'd think I'd have more of them, I'm pretty hard on my mods.)

    I will say if it's a GREAT vape shop they may have an electronics expert. I have a B&M with one, and they have fixed (for free) things I considered might've been totally unfixable.

    Best of luck, and welcome to ECF.:

    Hi Anna, thank you aswell for the reply and the friendliness.

    I just got out of the vape shop they said that the batteries contacts were a little bit out of place, and they pushed it upward.

    But still i dont feel as safe as i want to be, i will consider another mod.

    After watching a couple reviews it seems the aegis legend is the way to go for me, the mod feels solid, durable... perfect to me

    :)

    Don't have the "legend" but I do have the normal Aegis, it's indeed built like a tank and that you can drop it in your beer comes in handy where I live :D

    Your sigelei mod has the battery pins soldered to the chip in a bad way. Just from dropping your batteries in the mod weakens them. I've had two 213 mods break at the batt contacts to the chip. On my spectrum I put the batteries in real easy to avoid this problem. Also check the top of the mod and make sure it's not coming apart. The 2 screws are only being held by thin plastic and one drop can break the anchor points.
