If you have a Smok vape mod you may have experienced the following error message:

Don’t Abuse Protects

It is quite hard to figure out the problem but the cause is when you turn off the tank/atomizer while the mod is off and screw it back on again or screw a new one on. This error appears on several of the Smok mods such as the Alien, Alien Mini (AL85), XCube and others from what I’m aware of.

The solution is to press the fire button so the screen comes on and then screw the tank off. Again press the fire button so the screen is on when you screw the tank back on again.

That solves the Don’t Abuse Protects error message. Happy vaping!
