    Hi im new here i've looked around and couldn't find an answer, I have a Smok Skyhook, its turned on all lighting up, no error messages, but won't fire, reading 0-0.067volts - 0.119 ohms and 0.563amps each time i click the fire button it doesn't rise any higher. and it is on 120 watts.

    I've changed the batteries and still not working, does anyone know how to fix before i take it apart and look for loose wires?

    Hi and welcome,
    Had it been working up until this point?
    Tell us about the build you have in the unit. What wire did you use? Wraps? ID?
    Tell us about the batteries you are using? Are they branded or re-wraps? Are they from Amazon or Ebay or a vape shop?

    Yes, it would be helpful to know what changed, or if it was like this to start with. Batteries, mod, and coils could all be the culprit, but it's hard to say without more information. :)

    Maybe try a Build that has Higher Ohms?

    Or perhaps Dial Back the Watts on the Build you have right now?

    Think I would rebuild, aiming for a .3ish coil. Welcome to the board.

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    If you followed:
    "Important Note:
    Rebuildable atomizer coils and wicks have known risks.

    Rebuildables are for experts, not average or beginner vapers with no multimeter or knowledge of how to use a meter, or when a meter must be used, or how electronic devices work. These materials cannot safely be used by the inexperienced or those without basic knowledge of electronics.

    This is because:
    1. A rebuildable coil/wick MUST be tested carefully with a meter before it is used.
    2. If it is not tested it is entirely the risk of the user.
    3. Faulty wicks/coils WILL blow electronic devices.
    4. New coil/wick units must be tested and then used first on a strong basic electrical APV that has short circuit protection.
    5. No new coil/wick assembly should be used on an electronic device until known to be safe.
    6. These items destroy electronic devices if faulty. This is a known issue.

    Due to the nature of this product there is no warranty. This product is for experienced users and requires technical knowledge in order to properly use it"
    There are so many areas where things could have gone wrong, it's would be difficult to pin down a single cause in this post.
    Could contact:
    Local B&M Vape Shop-----Might be simple.
    Vendor who sold it ---see if they will repair or replace or advise (any authorized distributor).
    Manufacturer contact ---see if they will repair or replace or advise.
