    I've had this mod for about 3 months , recently the micro usb charging port has stopped working and now my mod heats up passively when the batteries are in, the batteries are all pretty new and have new sleeves on them so my question is: is this normal or does this mean that there is an internal shortage occuring in the mod causing the display and essentially the motherboard (i assume thats what is heating up) to heat up even if i am not actively vaping the mod... my tank remains cool and the batteries seem relatively cool too

    Something certainly sounds to be amiss. Certainly not normal. If still under warranty inquire about a replacement. If not, retire it. It's not worth the risk of a major fire.

    No, it shouldn't heat up especially if it isn't being used / in use.
    Probably best to remove the batteries place them in non conductive battery case & vape with something else.

    Hi and welcome. As Bad says, warranty it if you can, but take the batteries out no matter what. If it's heating up by itself, that's a problem. Stop it before it becomes a big problem.

    I'd contact your vendor and/or Teslacigs, as it sounds like you may be close to the end of the warranty period, although Teslacigs is a company I have felt pretty confident about, and hopefully they have a 12 week warranty from the manufacturer in place although it may be easiest to start with your vendor, whomever that is.

    I wouldn't vape the mod, and depending on how hot the batteries got, possibly not the batteries at this point either, at least until you've isolated your problem and depending on exactly how hot it got. Good luck,

    Anna

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    Could contact:
    local B&M Vape Shop (Visit) -----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.
