How do I check if it's working properly?
It seems one of my kicks is slowly breaking down. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

Guess it's ready for the bin.

Now, I do have several in stock (10+). Is there a way to test them all, despite installing one after the other?

Thanks!

I don't know of any way of testing these without installing them in a mod. For me unreliable behaviour was usually down to the negative pin spring getting weak or stuck part way in. Or sometimes I just blew them up by putting them in the wrong way round :)

Your best bet is something like this SKU 1637201.
I use the SMOK Omnitester but FT does not list one. I've been really happy with it.

Never did find a way to fix a weak negative pin, other than try each kick in each mod until I found pairings that worked properly.

Still, $7 ... I probably paid $50 for my first genuine one. And I blew it up. Ouch.

Surface mount circuitry, little chance to find the dead composants without huge electronic measurement tools.
But I understand you want fix it for the fun.
Anyway I don't use mine any more, d'ya want I send you free these to add to your 10 ?
I'm serious, they work perfectly but It disturb me to think throwing them in the bin.

It's an easy question to answer: it isn't. Unless you're really lucky, kicks never work quite as they should from the get go, and go south pretty fast if they do. I've really never got the appeal myself.
