Thanks Guys for the responses.

I'll answer to all:

@retird Yes pretty much, disconnected from USB,pulled out the 30Q's and put a set of HE 2's LG ? - the brown ones ! .. plugged USB back in, fired up EScribe & Dev Mon , same result.

@giz_60 - OK cool i'll drop them an email .. I don't do FaceBook (don't get me started on that!) Thanks [smile]

@dwcraig1 - hmm hadn't thought of that ! I'm at work now, so will have a dig around to find a decent one, I have one in my draw but it's only 750 mA
And yes it's displaying an error when plugged into a USB cable - PC

Cheers

Damian

Update:

So tried dwcraig1's suggestion, found an Apple USB charger with 2.3A output, plugged in the Therion with the Merlin tank with a newly built single SS316L coil, 0.31ohms, fired 6-7 times correctly with only 1 instance of the "Check Battery" error ! 
Plugged it back into my laptop, and ran EScribe - Dev Mon .. all good !
Had to nip off for ten mins, came back tried it again .... "Check Battery" grr , plugged it back into the Apple charger ... "Check Battery"
So the only conclusion I can make is that no conclusions can be made from any of these tests !! [confused]  Which I suppose does point more towards an iffy connection or something in the device.

I will email Lost Vape and see what they say.

Cheers
Damian

i've seen this only once before here. i forget what the guy did to fix it or even if he was able to fix it. i can't find his post anywhere. i think he ended up RMA'ing the board. maybe try re-installing the firmware. re-installing the factory lost vape therion 166 settings as well. you also get the check batt message while plugged in to charge, if you try and vape it? if yes, there could be a problem with the charging circuitry. if you set your USB current to 0 in device monitor, does the error still display while connection to EScribe?

Is that the "Max peak input current" & "Max sustained input current" ?
it won't accept zero, goes to 1 only, this would still be a 1amp charge wouldn't it ?

I don't see USB current mentioned anywhere.

Cheers

Damian

"set USB current" is located in Device Monitor. under "diagnostics". set to 0 and enter. then try and fire the device a few times, see if you still get the check batt message. when you're done testing. don't forget to "reset USB current".

Gotcha !!  .. and it fires every press !!  no "Check Battery" error !

Strangely it does seem to charge on USB (not that I ever use it)

I'm done for now ! going to bed !

Cheers

great! we're getting somewhere! lol.  it seems the USB charging is interfering with normal device operation, possibly. it's so hard to diagnose stuff like this over the internet.

ok, you go to bed while i get something to eat from Pizza Hut.

Hi ChunkyButt200,

I have an update : see on my other post regarding SS316 https://evolvapor.forumchitchat.com/post/ss316l-temp-control-help-8431044?pid=1294997444#post1294997444

But basically I have done a service pack re-flash, and now the mod is NOT showing "Check Battery" when firing it whilst in the Device Monitor !!

Not entirely sure what is going on, but it seems to be working better !

Thanks for your help again. 
Cheers
Damian

PS I hope you enjoyed your pizza [biggrin]
