So, no one else is getting the shorting problem and the whacky Ohm readings with this rba??? Well a lot of others including my self are. And it's bullshit. Someone posted a video on how to fix the problem here
Tfv8 baby beast rba shorting problem fix

But it hasn't worked for me. I have two of them and they both do this. I shaved the hell out of one and it still gives constant shortings and whacky Ohm readings. Here is what it looks like after I shaved it down






One time I got it to work. I screwed the rba into the base just barely, until it just touched the gold pin. it stayed at 0.10ohm and it produced awesome flavor! this is what it looked like






But I never got it to work again after that. But it seems like mostly everyone who has reviewed it here hasn't had this problem... It definitely isn't me either. I'm thinking maybe the two I bought (from vapesourcing) are just junk. I would really love to get this working because I like the baby beast. Been using it for 3 years since I quit smoking 🚬. I mean yeah I'm into other rta's that are way better. I think my Wotofo Bravo and Geekvape Creed are awesome flavor producers. I have the tfv8 Cloud Beast rba and the tfv12 Prince rba and those things are MONSTERS.
I was just really hoping for this to work. But idk man. I'm gonna order one from here and hope for the best. Maybe FastTech has the good ones!

Mine only works when I build it from the bottom up.
Screw the base tightly to the mod,so that the 510 pin sticks up as far as it can.
then screw on the RBA-but not to tightly...checking that it fires though.
then glass and top.
Works fine for me.
It just doesnt get any better than this !

another fix was to hold the RBA in a vice,and try and whack the centrepin,between the posts,with a small screwdriver- but that never worked for me

It seems about half of users have experienced this. I know i use to, back when I used the baby beast RBAs. Never had a single problem with the Prince RBA.

Sub ohm tanks normally use a crappy press fit 510 pin. If you can get the rba to connect tightly inside the base, you're good. Make sure the base is already on a mod...that will cause the 510 pin to push up as high as possible. Also, as a side note - constantly recheck your grub screws holding the coils, they tend to back off easily when heated/cooled.

If it works until you put the cap on, then shorts, make your coils smaller, if you get "no atty" use the method i mentioned above...they are fussy, but there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to get it to work. You mention two different and unrelated issues so I'm just trying to cover all the bases lol...good luck!
