From time to time, you may run into a few issues with your box mod vaporizer. Because it’s a piece of machinery, much like a car or kitchen appliance, it’s not surprising that there may be an occasional mechanical error. However, if you learn to recognize the first signs of a problem, you can often prevent it from escalating.

Luckily, there are many telltale signs that can let you know that your device is having an issue, with one of the most common being your box mod getting hot while in use. If you’re noticing that any part of your mod is overly warm to the touch while you’re vaping, you may be dangerously close to your mod overheating, which can cause a whole line-up of issues that it’s better to avoid. So, here are a few basic reasons that your device may be getting too hot, and tips for solving the problem.

Why is My Box Mod Overheating?

There are several reasons your mod might be getting too hot, but here are a few of the most common:

·You’re using a low-quality battery: It’s important to invest in a high-quality battery, and lithium-ion ones are usually your bet. Try switching out the battery to see if that solves the problem.
·You Have a Coil That’s Shorting, or There’s a Loose Strand on the Coil Wire: If you wrap your own coils, you may have inadvertently left a loose tail or wrapped it incorrectly, causing a short. Or, if you’re using pre-made coils, you may just have a defective one. Examine and replace the coils in your device.
·You’re Overcharging Your Battery: One of the easiest ways to cause overheating is to overcharge your battery. Unplug your device or remove the batteries from the charging when you notice they are fully charged, rather than letting them sit there all day.

What Should I Do if None of the Above Suggestions Solve the Issue?

First and foremost, if you don’t feel comfortable trying to solve the overheating issue yourself, the solution is simple: let a professional help you. A box mod is a battery-powered device, and safety precautions are extremely important.
