    Hi all,

    So it's been almost 2 weeks since VF and i've been using my Chi Megan pretty regularly since then. Lately i've been having problems with it either refusing to fire or firing but barely anything on a fresh battery and at .4 ohms. I've taken it all apart several times and it hasn't helped at all.

    What could I be missing?

    Yeah cleaned them all which seems to help but then fires like as if the battery has no power but when I pull the battery and charge it, the indicator states it's fully charged or as good as

    You got an alternative battery to try in case the batteries had it?

    Or another mod to try the battery in?

    So no other batteries or mod?

    Hmm, probably a long shot but do you have an inline voltmeter?

    The base of the battery does look a bit mucky, will try cleaning it now

    Can it measure the output of the battery? Most ohm meters measure atomizer resistance, you need a voltmeter to measure battery output.

    If it's 4.2ish you know the battery is charged...
