I always rinse off my RDAs when I get them.

Eh, prime? Well yeah if you're using cotton wicking NEVER dry burn cotton wick

Well its the stock coil. I dont know what ohm it is or will be because my F-in FT order with the ohm tester is stuck in mfin hongkong along with $200 worth of other merch and batts.

Loaded with 16mg(I believe) Vanilla from ElectoVape. Two par charged cgr18650ch batts. Device reads coil to be @ 1.2ohm. Took one hit and batts dont have enough power or something else is wrong because now the screen reads 0.0o. Time to play the button pressing game. BTW should have burnt off the coils first, hit was a bit foul tasting even after whole atty being rinsed out.

wrong video, but did find menu: Menu Options:

1.Uu Adjust Voltage Up

2.Ud Adjust Voltage Down

3.So
S.on = Turns your device on.
S.oF = Turns your device off.

4.Uc Check voltage of battery

5.dS Will display 1 of these selections every time you push the "vape" button, depending upon which one you select that you want shown?
do = Display atomizer/cartomizer output voltage
du = Display battery output voltage
dR = Display atomizer/cartomizer resistance

6.Lo
L.on = Turns your LED on.
L.oF = Turns your LED off.

7.UP Voltage or Power
Uo = Constant Voltage operation
Po = Constant Power (wattage) operation

8.NR Choice of V1 or V2 operation
RNS = This selection gives you the "RMS" accurate output results of the upgraded V2.
NEA = This selection gives you the "MEAN" less accurate output, but higher power results of the previous V1.

So from after decifering this menu, I understand this:

-My batteries are at 7.9v

I cannot for the life of me get the device to fire the atty no matter what I try. not sure what to do again, at least I "fixed" the "---" screen.

Going to clean connecting terminals of klimax and atty and try again.

Nope, no luck. I believe that the ZMax V2 is not reading the Triton Clone due to a screen reading of: 0.0o

If anyone could confirm this that would be swell. Fsors, berger, shek?

Why did it fire the first time i hooked them up?

Did you try pulling the positive posts and making sure that they're connecting?

Those rubber isolators wear out and will cause a short after long-term use.

Could be a couple of reasons
1. Try pulling out the positive pin in the Rba for a better connection
2: Your coils are too low to run on the Zmax board.

Have you tried another atty or carto on your PV?

My 650mAh standard eGos have stopped accepting my IGO RDAs. They constantly give the ShortCircut flash, eventhough there is no short. I get this on my recoiled PT heads from time to time as well. The attys meter fine with NO shorts and none of my coils are under 1.6ohms. They work fine on all my other PVs with NO weird battery/switch overheating. Also they work fine on my twists

Pretty sure the z-max board has a cut out at 1.5 ohm. I'd wager it's just too low ohm a coil for the board.

Sometimes these darn things are just finicky. I have a 1.7ohm carto that is getting a short on a provari, but fires on everything else! INCLUDING the ego twists.

Crazy like that.

It says here that the cutoff is 1.5
2: Working Data 2.1) 3.0ohm is standard resistance for cartos/atomizers worked on Zmax; the lowest resistance allowed is 1.5ohm.

Did you adjust the center pin on the Rba?
Do you have a 2 ohm cart to test with?
Can you wrap a coil?
Make it work, don't go buy cigs.

Screw cigs man...I started smoking one at work everyday I worked for the past 3 months because Im a line cook and well its stressful as hell and everyone smokes, but last week got too drunk and never wana smoke cigs again AGAIN. Wasnt even buying them...people where like, lets go lets go. So I went every time. Just got my teeth cleaned and a root canal done today...dont want to smoke cigs again. gross.
I dont have any 2ohm carts. Like I said, gave away everything that would fit on this mod.
I can theoretically wrap a coil and I do have 28g kanthol and cotton wick.
