    Heres a fix: Dont buy Smok
    Havent had 1 Smok device that didnt have some kind of issue. QC on Smoks are non existend
    As WRT your issue, the buttom probably recessed (known Smok issue)
    But perhaps the button is just sticky from juice. If its out of warranty open it up and clean with alcohol pads. Once openend you can also check if the fire button is still "clicky" or if it did indeed collapse

    But as per above, more info is required:
    Battery condition and status
    Please elaborate on "partial"
    History of the mod, i.e. model, years in service etc.
    Testing/Solutions tried

    And yes im still in work mode judging by my above post. Damn i need a drink . . .

    I've called a few shops and they say that the likely problem is the battery cable in the mod which was mass produced too short, and that fixing it would require sending it in to smok because the mod is sealed.

    I am (was) interested in this mod because of the huge tank, but when I saw that Vape King has marked down the price my suspicions were raised. A vendor doesn't reduce a mod's price unless they can't sell it - and particularly not a mod that's new on the market!!
    Is it even ethical for vendors to sell these mods then? All the V9s should be recalled by SMOK.
