smok tfv8 baby short
dont know if this has been asked before but i know its been asked on other forums
just built new 3mm coils, (5 wraps stainless ss316l)
used it for 24 hours on my smok r80 with no problems at 40w
now all of a sudden it shows shorted
clened the base and pin and still shorted
tried it on my rs200 with same short
stripped it down and cleaned it all and was fine for 3 uses and now shorted
pin is slightly protruding as should, contacts all clean and dry. coils spaced ok, seals fine as tfv8 only bout 3 month old hardly used

Try screwing the base onto your mod first then screw your coil into the base and see if that helps.

RE: smok tfv8 baby short
tried all sorts of tips and tricks from numerous google searches and the only thing that seems to have worked (hasnt shorted since 2 hours ago) is switching to temp control and max temp

RE: smok tfv8 baby short
I file the bottom of my rba section to make a nipple in the centre to stop shorting because I had the same problem as you, I use the tfv8 rba a lot because I get fantastic flavour from it.

See the nopple in the centre this sorts the shorting out.
