    Hi All.
    hoping for some help here.
    I just picked up the Bonza Mech Tube. I am currently running two RDAs on it.
    the Bonza with a 0.18ohm build and a Drop Dead with a 0.24 build. with both these builds I am using the 40T batteries.
    the issue I have is I am getting Hot Button issues with both builds I have calculated that I am in the Amp range of the batteries. I have cleaned the thread and the contacts. But still keep getting a hot button. Any advice as to why.
    I have the stainless Bonza.
    Any advise will be helpful to resolve the hot button issue. thanks in advance to the great community.

    I was running the battery positive down. By the botton. As that is where most of the venting is.
    Just turn the battery around to positive up and the issue is gone and the mod fires a whole lot better too.
    Why is this. A little confusing for me.
    I took the battery out and the positive cap is a lot cooler too with the positive up.

    Probably due to the Aluminium cell casing which doubles as negative contact is a better conductor than the nickel plated steel positive contact.

    Possible carbon build up on your battery's positive terminal?
