So back in the day, I had a Slim Joy ecig. I stopped using it because of having to constantly replace atomizers, and in the cases I'd buy there'd always end up being 2-3 DOA. I also thought the constant maintenance of refilling and charging was very tedious and annoying.
I bought this product and the K101 KeCig shortly after Christmas (with $ that was not easy to come by, but I really thought vaping was a good alternative to smoking). I have had nothing but problems since. -Don't get me wrong, the first few days were AMAZING, but it is only when you become reliant on something that it likes to constantly break. Very upsetting.
The pin under the atomizer head keeps getting pushed in (which causes the whole thing to not work, or apparently melt batteries, even when I change the battery from the very base of the mod). The biggest challenge is refilling the juice and putting it back on without messing up the pin (as it is spring loaded, so I have to push the pieces back together while screwing it back on, and mind not spilling the juice).
The place I bought it from used a small screwdriver to push the pin back in. So I now carry a tiny screwdriver as well. However, this morning the pin and its 3 rubber grommet rings got pushed completely out when I was trying to do this (despite my same gentle pressure, having done this a few times now). I took it back to the shop and they fixed it somehow, but this pin is a real problem and I do not know how to just make it work like it did the first few days -FOR GOOD. Now when I refill the juice, I have to tap the pin with a Q-tip to make sure that explicit delete stays in there and functions. It just seems like the maintenance of vaping keeps getting more cumbersome as I go, and I am becoming jaded quite fast (I am sure that is not the impression Aspire intended here).
The Slim Joy may have been annoying, but all things considered, it's been about 5 years, and that thing still works (it's just not satisfying, hence my "upgrading"). Unfortunately, with the way things are going, I do not see this new Aspire Atlantis + K101 lasting more than maybe a month. The shop has a no return policy (that I did not notice until it appeared at the bottom of my receipt). I hate to keep throwing money at this, and practically live at the shop, if these arising issues are never going to resolve. I am extremely frustrated, what can I do to fix this for good and just enjoy it like it was probably meant to be enjoyed?
