    Provar vs Vamo with EVOD BCC

    I really like the EVODs, and have been recommending them to people taking up vaping, but I have discovered that they have a tendency to become stuck on my SS Vamo -- the tube comes off, leaving the base and coil behind (usually, I notice this occurring, but if I don't ... juice everywhere). I'm at the point where I will probably pull out an Ego when it's time to use the EVOD.

    No issues with the 510 thread on the Protank, and it has happened to a Stardust, but only once or twice.

    I have just ordered a Provari, and am wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem. Also, is this a common issue with Vamo's, or have I just got a slightly dodgy one?

    Overall, quite happy with the Vamo despite this, and looking forward to finding out how the Provari compares.

    Edit: I just discovered the worst-offending EVOD doesn't screw onto my Ego properly either (it doesn't screw down far enough). I thus suspect the problem is likely with the EVOD, not the Vamo ... although it is possible that the Vamo caused the issue.

    maybe you're doing your evod up too tight on to the battery. it should only be lightly tightened. the base of the clearo should be tightened onto the clearo much tighter than you do the clearo onto the battery. apart from risking losing juice everywhere by the wrong part coming undone, you risk pushing the centre pin down on the battery and making it hard to use if you put it on the battery too tight. so try just not doing it up so tight. and try and get into the habit of turning it all upside down when you're taking the clearo off the battery, just in case.

    any mod that has a recessed well has the potential to cause this problem. one fix could be to put a 510-ego adaptor on the mod. that way, the base of the clearo will be up out of the well, so you can grasp it as you undo it.

    Grr ... I just emptied my AiV Lemon Cake from my EVOD into a Protank ... and it's not nearly as good. I really like EVODs, but this is a pain in the arse. Especially when it gets jammed on hard at work and I need to wait until I get home to get it off with pliers. Fortunately, I've always got a spare ego or two around.

    Anything out there that vapes like an EVOD without this issue?

    After it first started happening, I assumed the same thing, and was careful to screw it on lightly ... but typically, this failed to make a connection. Screw it on tight enough to actually vape, and after a while they all just seem to start sticking.

    It might be that I damaged the threads early on ... I have a few new EVODs on the way, and will see what happens if I'm extra cautious with them.

    Doing a clearo up too tight can destroy the clearo and ruin your battery / mod's threading. It's only got to be tight enough to not wobble and fire.
    It probably no longer fits your ego for 1 of 2 reasons, coil head not tight enough in the base or 2 you have damaged the threading in the evod by overtighening it to your vamo.

    I'm leaning strongly towards the "screwed on too tight at some stage, damaged the threading" explanation. And once the problem starts, getting it onto the Vamo properly can almost certainly exacerbate the problem (I've noticed some of the worst offenders jumping the threads on the Vamo while I was trying to get them working).
