There are many reasons for the short circuit of the atomizer, if it is with short circuit protection will not be dangerous, if it is a mechanical rod may cause a battery explosion, so the short circuit of the atomizer is not a particularly serious problem, but it should be paid attention to.
1. Factors causing short circuit of atomizer and solutions
1. The installation and use of the atomizer without drying after cleaning leads to short circuit. This situation is very simple, just remember to clean the atomizer must be dried, it is best not to use immediately.
2, the bottom electrode is low, can not touch the top of the host electrode resulting in short circuit. Try turning the electrode screws on the bottom of the nebulizer a little bit outward.
3, check whether the heating wire lock screw is tightened, if necessary, can re-wire.
4, check whether the bottom electrode is too tight, twist out some, if necessary, can be replaced with another electrode screw.
Second, how to avoid short circuit of mechanical electronic cigarette atomizer?
Always check the resistance and short circuit of the nebulizer. Unlike general finished electronic cigarettes, mechanical electronic cigarettes can still ignite even when the atomizer has a short circuit. Here the short circuit refers to the resistance of the resistance to zero or close to zero, but most finished e-cigarettes will not let the resistance value below 1.5 ohms (ohm), which ensures that the battery is not too stressed.
When using a new atomizer, be sure to check the resistance value of the atomizer first, confirm that there is no abnormality, and then screw it to the mechanical battery compartment.
If using an RBA-assembled rebuildable atomizer, do not let the resistance value be too low, because too low resistance value will put too much pressure on the battery. It is best to control the resistance value between the standard resistance value of 2.4-3.0 ohms at the beginning to ensure safety.
Although the atomizer is not so easy to short-circuit, it is best to test it with a multimeter (friends who use mechanical electronic cigarettes should prepare a multimeter). The specific test method is as follows: take out the battery, connect the battery compartment to the atomizer, put one probe of the multimeter on the positive terminal of the battery compartment, and the other probe touches the surface of the battery compartment (note that it is not the negative terminal of the battery compartment). If the multimeter shows a non-zero resistance value, it means that there is current passing through, then there must be a short circuit somewhere.
When testing resistance with a multimeter, be aware that the lead of the multimeter may also generate resistance. We have seen very cheap multimeters with lead resistance even higher than 0.6 ohms. The lead resistance can be shown by touching the two probes of the multimeter. When testing the atomizer, you need to subtract this value to the true resistance value. For example, if you measure the resistance of the atomizer to 2 ohms, if the lead resistance has 0.6 ohms, then the true resistance value is only 1.4 ohms.
In short, the electronic cigarette atomizer short circuit, do not worry, think about the above problems can be solved.
