Got it all figured out. The seller sent me the Positive instead of the Negative board. He was shipped the wrongs one and didn't catch it. So he is making it right. I did figure how to wire it though and its working nice. Instead of running the 20k resistor to the vin from the on/off pad. Run it from the on/off pad to the Negative pad. Then run the on/off wire from the pad to the on/off switch. Then from there to the fire switch, then from there to the Positive on the battery sled. I got 3 of the + boards. So I'm keeping the one I got wired up and he is sending me 2 new - ones. I re done this diagram to show how I wired the OKL2-T20 P board.

I see an old thread here sorry to bump it, but please do not attempt to make a li-ion battery charger from strach, I killed some scrap ego batteries that way.

General Discussions / A rant I want to make about the current vape scene.
« Last post by Zanderist on January 02, 2017, 03:35:52 PM »
Understand guys I'm only 26 years old, and I'm not the type that wants to control other people's actions. It's more I want to get people aware of what they are doing when they pick up a vape, or make a vape. This isn't directed at you guys on this forum, it's just something I have been watching on different forums.

What I'm seeing in places like ECF and the sub-reddit for vaping, is a great many people are okay with giving out information on how to get nicotine  and how to make a mod.

I have no problem with this, though I can't help but feel a certain concern considering, I have been licensed by the United States Coast Guard, about how much people have an actual clue about the safety of certain aspects to vaping.

One example case I had over at ECF, a new guy came in asking for source for extremely high concentration of nicotine  for his e-liquid. Sure could of been some innocent person trying very hard to quit, or could been a potential person that hadn't the slightest Idea on what he was looking for. I tried pointing this out in the thread, I was quickly shut down because apparently I was trolling.

I raised the basic points,
Are they using gloves?
Do they have children?
Are they actually trying to do something very bad with the liquid?

But I guess showing some concern is considered trolling in this day and age.

Honestly I hadn't the slightest clue who this person was and couldn't understand how people were so easy to give out information on where he could find such a high concentration of nicotine liquid over the Internet.

What gets me so bothered, is how the news media is spinning the story on vaping so badly. That people in the vape community seem to have become their own worst enemies from the information they give out and who they are enabling.  The vape scene doesn't seem to have a clue as to why governments are shutting down the hobby, it's because none of them are giving a damn about what the other person vaping is doing.

Another thing also, is kids picking up mech mods and acting like they have clue about it.  Do store owners even care what might happen if this thing blows up in the kids face? Oh no, I just want to make back the money I spent on buying the device.

The 20k resistor is that what is suppose to keep it from auto firing?

It's on the same circuit, so it could be your problem.

Using SMD version of the resistors is fine. Shouldn't be an issue as long as everything is wired properly. Again, you may have just burnt one.
You did attach one leg of the pot to the center leg, yes?

Desolder the firing switch, see if that does anything. After that, the only suggestion is replacing the resistors, which you are already on.

Yes the switch is soldered and it looks to be good. All grounds are done at the 510, none seem to be loose. Yes I'm testing this outside the box. Only thing that is in the box is the 510. Could the problem be the resistors I am using? The are the small SMD ones. I used for both the 20k and the 1.43k. I'm attaching a photo of the 1.43k and the 20k is about the same size. I do have those coming in that have the long legs on them. I appreciate your help SDADDY.
