    There is no difference for VW mode between 170607 and 170624 and later.

    Me also have the atomizer 0 issue on my Predator from time to time. Before shorts the device usually show me the increased x1,5-2 of normal resistance. But during fire pressed it backs to normal. After fire button released it return back to x1,5-2 values. Usually the take-off and take-on of atomizer helps but after few tries usually. Or long heating the coils during 1-2 mins and starting from very low power (5w) with slow growing power up to normal 30-60w with 2-3 w steps also helps. If do it not so slow I catch the short again on low watts. Alsi unsrew and screw the coils helps 100%. Swith on/off the mod never helped me.

    Also me tried back to original firmware: the resistance stoped to grow and keeps fixed value. And these abnormal atomizer shorts occured maybe x10-20 times seldom, but occurs, anyway switch off/on on unsrew atomiser helps me 100% after 1st try. Also i tried to make full unmount of the mod on parts, and clean everything - the plate, contacts and the button. Doesnt helped.

    Just me suppose that device have some periodical changing of resistance (maybe hardware specific or issue), but official firmware knows it and can override. Also it looks that Arctic Flash use varios methods to measure the resistance during firing and during standby modes. Method used during fire mode looks correct. During standby - uncorrect.

    I tried your trick and get that re-read resitance still show me random values in interval 0.5-0.7 ohm, but my coils have 0.5, i checked it on other mods.

    Anyway the trick is useful as workaround solution. It helps to eluminate short much faster than unsrewing, thanks! :)
    Believe that my so long post would be useful for developers.

    Well, not really. When in 5W if I re-detect coil I am able to fire. I can rise it a bit but at about 13w it starts failing again.

    Are you using SS coils? I still see a similar issue on my Primo V1 (using SS 0.3 ohm), however since switching to 0.5ohm Kanthal coils the problem has mostly gone away. Hmm...

    You increase watts very fast, re-try slowly

    Everything is fine. But the new version means new features. That's what excites me

    have same issue on rx200, set the re-reading coil with 4 fire button press to avoid unscrewing every time the atomizer.
    i'm on last stable build.
    edit: tried with 170720, same problem.
    It's so strange. Sometimes, without touching anything, it works after 2-3 times i press fire.. o_O

    Hello! I even recommend to update QC to the latest nightly build. Do not forget to update NFE Tools to recent version too.
