    Hi Guys. 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. Couldn’t get 30Ts.
    but 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.
    And advise will be helpful to resolve the hot button issue. thanks in advance to the great community.

    Howsit bud, ive noticed stainless steel mechs with stainless steel buttons get hot, why i have no idea, i currently run a 0.11 ohm build in my coil art mage v2 using a 30T and 40T and my batteries stay cool and so does my button.

    Just make sure your battery isnt heating up. Also, what coils are you using?Sometimes coils that have a long ramp uo time tend to make buttons on mechs hot.

    hi. Thanks.
    the mod has a copper button. but I tried the mod with the Positive up and the problem went away now. Was running with the positive down as most of the venting on the mod is on the button. But also has some venting at the top.
    not sure why this made a difference but the mod is firing better too and is much cooler. I suspect it has something to do with the switch making contact on the top cap on the battery with arching etc.
    as I think with the switch making contact on the bottom of the battery is a lot better and produces less arching.

    If you have a multimeter also check the mod resistance. The switch to positive up might have reduced the distance the current had to travel (through material) to the coil/(resistor) like the bottleneck effect.everything before the coil heats up. Read up on anode and cathodes too, it will help understand it better.
    (I stand to be corrected)
