    battery pin not making contact

    eGo K Vision Compact Kit V2 in 30 styles [02-F] - $18.99 : Healthcabin Electronic Cigarettes - Wholesale and Retail

    Ive got 2 of these

    one of the batteries has a dud connector

    every time i put it on the charger or connect a cart

    it doesn't work the next time i try to use it

    so i pull up the connector(terminal?)

    and everything's fine

    im worried that continually pulling up the terminal will eventually break it

    im guessing it should be spring loaded?

    Can it be fixed?

    im happy to pull it apart

    i just don't want to break it

    any tips?

    Buy a mod with adjustable connector and use the egos as emergency

    My ego Q's from there have the same problem. Been using them for over 3 months and haven't damaged it yet from wiggling them up with tweezers. It's annoying but not a huge issue for me, they still work great. It was just when I first got them and couldn't work out what was wrong with them that it drove me crazy, but since figuring it out its been fine lol!

    Hi Glenn , the connectors arent spring loaded or anything , they are just a fit into an insulating sleeve , so unfortunately you are probably stuck with having to wibble them out now and then once loose .
    Tip , egos etc do not need to be a tight fit when screwing together , this is what probably caused it to come loose in the first place , just a gentle finger tight is all you need . You can also pull the centre pin down a little on your clearos so they contact a little bit better .. be gentle tho else you could end up with the pin in your hand going " What the ! "

    don't do them up all the way, just enough to contact and a 1/4 turn more, some attys are worse than others. you may have to screw it on a little further each time but usually not.

    the inner part of the connector is just a loose bit of brass held in a silicon sleeve, it can slide for a long time before anything bad happens .. being the wire snapping off, never seen that happen though.
