Pegasus doing strange things...

I received my Pegasus a week ago, assembled everything and tryed vaping. Immediately noticed that in TC, the coil wasn't getting anywhere near the temp I specified, so I popped in the .4 coil, (came with triton in the oddessey kit) and cranked up the wattage. When it is set to 70w, it will only fire at 30-40w. Okay, so maybe the Basen battery I got is junk, I have an aspire 40w 18650 on the way, but the really strange thing is that when in VW, and I set the wattage down to 1w, it still fires at 30-40w, just like it does when set at 70. Is this all because of a possible bunk battery? Or do I need to send the mod back for an exchange?

  • Upon further review, it was stuck in bypass mode. Switched modes, good as new.
  • Do you have the Pegasus V1 or V2 ?
    Is your Basen battery fully charged ?
    You probably have the Version 1, with that one, with a new different coil, you must fire 3-4 seconds in order for the device to check the kind of coil it is.
  • @JWSpeedWorkz Sometimes it's just the little things that mess with our vape 'eh?! ;)
  • I would imagine its a V2, but I'm not sure. It recognizes coil changes right away. The instruction pamphlet didn't really mention what the heck bypass mode is. The Basen battery is charged, but i can tell when it steps down wattage, pretty sure this battery just cant take the drain for more than a couple seconds. Found out this morning that the .4 coil doesn't like 70W :)
  • Are you using the "Bypass" mode when this happens ?
    The bypass mode is like a "meca" mode, it gives power just as much as the battery can handle, without any electronic boosting, just a simple application of the Ohm's law (Power=Voltage²/resistance).
  • Hmm, it sounds like the v1, but I didn't know the v1 had a bypass mode! I thought that was only available with the v2??

    V2 to me, no bypass mode on the V1 (or not functionnal anyway) !

    @JWSpeedWorkz Do you see a menu on the display when a change is made ?



  • Quite familiar with the ole E=IR, but yeah, whenever a change is made a menu does display. The bypass mode is actually kind of a nice function now that you explained it. I'm hoping TC mode functions properly now, will check when I get home
