Calibration problem?
Hey all,

So I received my meter the other day, and upon putting in batteries and flipping it on, I expected to see a 0. Instead, without any atomizer connected, it read a 1. I'm hoping that this just means that it's calibration is off, and I can just use the 1 as a baseline instead of 0. I am going to go out and get another multimeter today because I rather not play with fire and build something my batteries can't handle.

Has anyone else experienced this?

hi,
got the same, this is normal behavior.

when you screw an aty on it, you will see a real and accurate value.

Beware : if you mount an aty (without coil) and see a value of 0 (or something near), this means you have a short :)

-Cheers

Yep 1 means no atty attached, so you don't get it confused with a short which is 0
