Jeggedda, Sorry to hear about your Pico faults and your not alone. Lot's of drama's are now starting to surface.

I think you noticed my poor Pico just shit itself after 12 days and the battery life of a new Samsung 30Q, usually lasted about 9ml of juice, with a 0.5 ohm coil at 35 watts. I didn't get to try it in TC mode as it didn't live that long.

EDIT: My Pico came with a scratch n Sniff number and DID check out Authentic.

I was going to buy another one, however after reading some reviews and other stuff on different forums, I'm convinced there's a new batch of clones on the market. These ones were mentioned to rattle and do strange things like your talking about. Bloody iSticks :))

I decided to get the VTwo Mini SKU 4871204 in the FREEDOM SALE for the reliability they have earned. I still love my D2, however everyone needs a backup MOD.

Best wishes for your poor Pico problems.

Well, if the mod was working correctly, the cutoff voltage should be measured under load instead. It's like a weak battery message on some mods, but instead of still firing a lower output, it just doesn't fire.

Woah, mama!

I contacted eleaf and explained what was going on with mine. Here's what they said.

Dear Customer,
Do you mean the battery cell can last only 3 hours: every 15-20 miniutes, you take 3-4 puffs, and every puff, you vape for about 4 seconds?
In addition, have you ever contacted your seller?
Best wishes!
Wendy

Opening ticket for exchange now.

If it's any consolation for others having problems. In 2 weeks my vape store had 3 that came back that just stopped turning on. And 1 that only had one thread milled in the top cap.

It is too hey!
Sure its still run by JT?
Probably using that for the low end segment. Joyetech more for the upper market. No cutting corners.

Counterfeits? certainly not outside of the normal for China... bad runs hurried through to catch up order back logs?

All I can attest to is my experience with the Pico is flawless performance right down to the onboard charging.
