    Vaporflask Lite by Vape Forward... Faulty fire button!

    A bit disappointed to say the least.

    I purchased my Vaporflask Lite on the 2/02/2016 and the main fire button has become faulty.
    It won't fire at all sometimes and then when it does it get's stuck ON. It's never been dropped or abused and it still looks good.

    At about $100 I wasn't expecting much but I was expecting more than 3 months of use. I'll contact Vape Forward directly but meanwhile...

    Can anyone recommend a good reliable regulated mod? ... Maybe I should make my own

    Best to also go thru whoever sold you the mod too ( as in vendor) ... this covers your arse with VF better than the direct approach , and who knows they might intercede on your behalf ?
    ( as far as mods go ... yihi mini rock solid, UD Balrog rock solid... depends on how many watts you are chasing too ... ? )

    Thanks... I just contacted the vendor so we'll see what happens.

    I've been thinking about a Yihi mini. I only Vape at around 15 watts.

    If you just want something cheap to fill in while you wait for a replacement Vaporflask, I'm liking my VTC mini now it's all under control*

    * Highly recommend the V3.03 firmware upgrade*

    I also had an issue with my VF Lite. It started reading everything 0.05ohm higher than what it was (also no drops or such). Cleaning the contacts (even with IPA or even other solvents) didn't help so I emailed the VF guys. After a little confusion as to my issue they offered to send me a new one. I didn't even have to send my old one back!
    Also the old one spontaneous started reading properly the other day.
    So I was also disappointed with the fact the first one is iffy...but their customer service was top notch.

    Edit: fab4....you like flappy birds do you?

    IStick Pico can be had for $45 while you wait for an EPM to come along.

    LOL, not as such.

    When I updated to V3.03 the user interface had all of the changes that Phil Busardo suggested, plus it just seemed to work a lot more consistently, and stopped asking me if I had new coil every time I woke it up. It's been pretty well rock solid since the update. (Edit: I was having a lot of trouble prior to doing the update, with V3.00)

    But yes it will play baccy birds, but I don't see the point of hammering on the fire button any more than I need to.

    cheap solution, istick 40w, less than $50 or as Ducky has just superseded me with, the iStick Pico

    find something you like the look of, that meets your needs, read some reviews, and then whack it into VapeAssist (choose australia) and find the cheapest price

    Reminds me of my VTC's, with the resistance issues

    vape forward = wismec = joytech

    at least you didnt have to deal with (the lack of) joyetech support
