There is also PCB overheat protection that shuts off the output automatically in case the temperature gets too high. In this case, you will see a “PCB TOO HOT” message on the display.

Next, there is low/high resistance protection in this mod as well. In case the resistance falls under 0.05 ohm, you will see an “OHMS TOO LOW” message on the display. In case the device resistance excesses 2 ohms, you will see an “OHMS TOO HIGH” message on the display.

Also, there is a switch timeout protection. A ten-second timeout protects the coil and the atomizer from burning. The mod also has a battery reverse protection. When the battery runs out, you’ll get a low power alert.
