This may answer your question.

Vaper buys pod system, asks for a 510 adapter. LOL for days

I am not sure that this is the reason

But one month or less is too short for this chip

Is it possible to use another chip with high quality made? I don't mind even if it is expensive

I am very upset

CTHULHU TUBE MOD is the best mod I have ever used after the provari so I don't want to lose

because of this cheap chip

May be the fire button, I've had one fail but I didn't go through an autopsy.

Check the fire button connection to the board!
I actually bought a spare Mosfet, just incase! But when mine failed I had a closser look & the fire button hadn't been soldered very well :(
I just re-soldered it & it's been working fine for a long time now!

Sniff it...does it smell burnt? If so, it's toast. Keep in mind that a simple short (posts touching, cap touching coil leg) will destroy these mosfets. Treat them like a mech, and always check your atty on a regulated mod after any work on your build or disassembly/ maintenance. I killed my last one when a coil leg found it's way into the deck of my Hussar Project X, of course unbeknownst to me...DOA !

Build .2 or higher, your mosfet will last almost indefinitely if you follow the above steps.

Hi SC, I'm sorry you are having issues. it is 8 days after you started this thread...the burning smell of plastic is immediately after, not 8 days later. One thing to do is visually inspect your chips - do you see any black marks or melted components? It's really hard to help you without knowing your build/ohms or even knowing what mod you are using this chip on - It fits many mosfets tubes. You say you love the Cthulu, so I'll assume thats your application.

If you can post pictures, or more info, I could probably help you. Mosfets and mosfet mods are simple, but fragile. A low build will instantly kill it. That could be a low build (below .2) or an "artificially" low build, i.e., a short.

Don't crank the screw down too tight in the Cthulu mod is one thing I remember, bearing on this issue I'm not sure of though.

Hi

I'm sure the first second the chip stopped working, there was no burning smell

I use the chip with Cthulu mod

no black marks
no melted ingredients

Also my build is (0.8)

I attached some pictures

I'm pretty sure the switch is at fault, it doesn't click anymore does it? Hard to press and doesn't really bounce back afterward?

It's a faulty switch just like the one I have that broke. I just found mine.

I'm going to take mine apart and take a look.
