Go to your Goblin profile, save that profile, go to your Merlin profile, choose 'load' and select your known Goblin profile. Rename profile text display's back to Merl or whatever

Whole lotsa PEBMAU. For TC to work properly, both the mod and the atty need to start at the current room temperature. Ya can't just willy nilly swap 'em out. Yes for Power/watts but not TC

Excellent descriptions that you provide allow for quick(er) diagnosis. [thumb]

Thanks Wayneo, I'll give the profile copy thing a go next time I see the issue.

Sorry ! what's PEBMAU mean ? I feel I should know but it's got me confuddled !

I'll bear that in mind, will try to allow both to settle down for a while.

Thanks for the appreciation of detail ... I work in IT so fully understand that the devil's in the detail !! [biggrin]  If only I got a £ for every call saying "the thingy isn't working .. there was an error message but I didn't read it - i'm going for lunch now, can you fix it before I get back " !! 

Cheers

Damian

Damian, my feeble attempt at some old time IT humor. In the old days it was PEBKAC, so to keep it current and relevant, I've now invented (Problem exists between mod and user). [biggrin]

Built a dual coil build exactly the same as the Snapdragon but for the dual coil deck of my Merlin - 2.5id .50 7 wraps SS316L
Switched to Merlin profile - no TC - kept saying "OFF" on screen.
But I noticed that it wasn't displaying "Merl" where the profile name should be (on the mod)
So switched to the Snapdragon profile, which is in effect exactly the same, and TC is working, and displaying "Snap" on screen.
So seemed as if the Merlin profile was corrupt or something.

So I saved all the profile settings and did a re-install of the service pack.
Re-did the materials list, and added back my 3 atty profiles.

And it all seemed to be working correctly !

First thing I noticed is that after having a puff, the mod is flashing up "Temperature Protected" never seen that before !! 

After vaping it for an hour or so, I decided to test it properly, so I removed the Merlin, switched the profile to the Goblin profile and gave it a go ... all working fine ..
Removed the Goblin, switched profile back to the Merlin ... nope, back to "OFF" and not showing "Merl" on screen !
Pulled a battery, left it for a minute, re-inserted said battery, and then the profile name is displayed ?

Vaped it, and immediately noticed that the vapour output was a lot more "powerful" at the same temp.
To get it back to the same output, I had to reduce the temp down to 127c from 170c 

So apart from all of the other oddities, it seems that the TC is all over the place !

I don't mind too much having to re-adjust the temp, but I'm guessing this shouldn't be happening ?

On a positive note, since doing the service pack re-flash, I no longer get the "Battery Check" message when connected to my PC and using the Device Monitor" !
So there must have been something a bit fubar with the factory firmware ?

Anyway .. I'm 80% happier now, and as I only swap atties twice a day (work\home) I can live with these little quirks.

Thanks to all for your suggestions and help, I can't make my mind up if I need to raise this with Lost Vape or not ? what's your thoughts ?

Many thanks

Damian


Update: Arrrgh !! left it alone for 20mins, went to vape it .. nothing coming out, had to put the temp up to 222c !! what the flock is going on with this SS I'm not getting this with titanium !


hi, didn't the snapdragon have a base/ 510 spring issue with TC or am I thinking of a different atomiser?

the constant over heating/ under heating is a resistance fluctuation, either a loose screw, the 510 or the coil shorting between wraps.
It could have been warm when you swapped meaning that the mod took the warm resistance as "base' and had to overpower to reach the calculated limit , then when it was cool it was running true and only heating to 120c.

TBH I don't mess with profiles swapping between atomisers , I don't use preheat either . The SP updates have smoothed out power delivery enough to set a power, a temperature and let the board regulate itself.

Hi SteveF,

I've not seen any mention regarding the Snapdragon and TC, but there were a lot of people having issues with the v1 as it had a reverse threaded base that was a PITA, mines the v1.5 which has a redesigned base with 2 screws holding it together.

But, I've been doing my testing on my Merlin mini as it's way easier to recoil, and has two decks, one for single coils and one for dual.

Yeah I also have not been using the pre-heat feature, have found that it didn't make it better or worse so don't use it now.

I think my last issue with the heat fluctuation was due to it being a fresh build and it hadn't settled down, as per Wayneo's and ChunkyButt200's comments.

Fired it up the morning and it seems to working perfectly, so I think I've cracked it !

Thanks for your comments too. [thumb]
Cheers
Damian

great news, it can be a pita getting everything to work all at once.
I knew that there was a problem with one of the high end atomisers but couldn't for the life of me remember which one.

I've been using SS316 since the SP series of updates,before that SS was terrible, just a huge spike
Now it seems to take a little while for the coil to settle possibly only 0.01 in it but enough to make 40-50 degrees C difference.
And then like the atomiser I'm using now, it reads 0.16-0.17 probably goes from 0.165 to 0.171 on escribe cold and that can vary 10-15C from day to day.
Actually its reading 0.18, must need rewicking😑
