    Would just like to find out if anyone experienced misfire with the istick 40w. Sometimes when pressing fire button nothing happens. I need to release the button and press again for it to fire. I know it was an issue with the 50w

    I've not used the 40w - but my 50w does this sometimes - also it has "latency" - takes about half a second to kick in after pressing the button.

    Hey @SmokeyJoe, I have a 40w TC and have not had any issues with mine. Maybe take it back to the vendor where you purchased for a swop? Better to be safe than sorry, still a very new mod so there could be some faulty devices no doubt.

    Unfortunately the vendor that i bought it from is renowned for their bad return policy. So its not an option. Its not a major issue, it is somethong that i can live with, just thought i would ask if anyone else have the same issue

    Ah that sucks - however like I said my 50w does the same thing from time to time but it's not really been a major issue, or bothered me too much. Googling the issue show's it's pretty common with the eleaf mods.

    Thanks bud. Thought as much. Still think its a decent mod for the price. Especially with the crap i had with the more expensive mods that i bought before

    Same here. I have the 30w and the 40w and very happy, except for the obvious misfire issue on the 40w. Thanks to everyone that replied

    @SmokeyJoe, agreed, quite a nice device for the price. I had a bit of trouble with mine in TC mode but it was due to inferior wicking on my part... Could not soak up enough juice fast enough so it kicked over to temp control instantly almost. Got that sorted and working like a dream since. Hope your button sorts itself out soon!
