What is Auto-Firing?

Auto-firing happens when a box mod is essentially operating, but without being manually initiated by you. It happens without you having to press down on the firing button, which can be rather unsettling to say the least. Most users happen to store their box mods on their person as they are meant to be portable devices.

Some people carry them in their pockets while others store them inside a purse or even the glovebox in their cars. When auto-firing happens, you are nowhere near the power button. This creates a very serious issue that can end up being injurious to you. It is always a good rule of thumb to remember that when choosing a box mod for the first time, to always go for a reputable brand.

Auto-firing can strike any box mod. When it happens, it can imply that you either need to fix it yourself or replace your box mod completely. Either way, addressing the issue immediately will prevent you and others from getting injured. When a box mod auto-fires, it is going to create a lot of heat inside a small space. As you can see, that would not be a very good thing.


Why is Auto-Firing Dangerous?

If you have not already guessed by now, a box mod that auto-fires inside your pocket will create a large amount of heat in an enclosed space. This can result in burns and potential fires depending on where it is being stored. If you have a box mod in your pocket that is turning on by itself, it won’t be long before you notice the heat and end up getting injured.

Auto-firing can also be quite dangerous if your box mod stays on continuously and long enough that the battery explodes. This is no joke, and it has happened. This issue is not to be taken lightly. If you store a box mod that is auto-firing inside a drawer or glovebox, you will risk having that area torched from the heat and potential explosion that could ensue.


How to Fix a Box Mod That Auto-Fires

Determining what is causing your box mod to auto-fire will require a bit of know-how on your end. The last thing you will want to do is attempt to fix your box mod and end up making it worse or hurting yourself in the process. If you are a beginner, don’t even bother. If you happen to touch the battery or other components, you could risk some serious injury to yourself.

If you are confident that you are skilled enough to fix the issue, then the first thing you will want to do is remove both the tank and battery (if possible). Safely removing the battery will stop the current causing the box mod to auto-fire. You will want to consider replacing the battery first as this can be a cause. Next, check your chip and switch for signs of burnout.

Replace these if necessary but remember that disassembling your box mod may void the warranty. Once you have fixed your box mod, make sure you remove the battery after every use as you cannot be totally sure that the issue has been fixed. The best way to repair your box mod is to have it serviced by a professional or otherwise completely replaced.

How to Prevent Your Box Mod from Auto-Firing

If you choose to use your device after fixing it, it is a risk that you will have to determine whether it is viable. It is highly recommended that you either replace the unit or get it serviced under the warranty. Because auto-firing is such a serious issue, you cannot trust that you have fixed it yourself by replacing anything.

If you still insist on using your box mod after it has been known to auto-fire, then taking out the battery will be the best way to prevent it from happening when not in use. You might also want to consider upgrading your unit, as this will prevent having an auto-firing issue from an old model. Never leave your box mod inside a glovebox or purse for extended periods of time.

If you are going to store it on your person while on the go, make sure you remove the battery until it is time to have your vape session. Once a box mod starts to auto-fire, it is safe to say that it will not go away until the issue has been serviced. It is not as simple as having your box mod turned off and assuming it will not auto-fire again. You need to remove the battery to stop it from happening! This is the only way to prevent it once it has started.

Final Thoughts

Unfortunately, box mods are not simple devices by any means. They are rather complex and have features that are not capable with other devices. This makes box mods a double-edged sword. On one hand, they are advanced and can be the best in terms of having a vape session. On the other hand, when something goes awry, it goes hard. Always educate yourself when it comes to handling your box mods.

Take the time to get to know your device thoroughly. Auto-firing is a very serious issue that should not be taken lightly. You can end up getting seriously injured and injuring others if you dismiss the seriousness of this issue. In any case, it is best to simply replace your unit once you come across this type of malfunction.
