    need help to repair my Viggo

    Hi All,

    The delrin insulator in the top cap of my Viggo has come lose and fallen out.

    Assume/Hope I can "glue" it back in but no idea what is the best adhesive to use?
    Regular old supermarket super glue or something more along the lines of areldite or something else?

    Or...should I be seeking out a modder here that lives in Sydney somewhere to help me out rather than try this myself?

    Or do I need to replace the top cap?

    Any help appreciated!!

    Hope this works.....

    A few photos, what is should look like and what it does look like.

    The black piece is what I need to know about, what adhesive is easy enough for me to use and is heat resistant enough for vaping?

    Not knowing the mod, it looks like the delrin spacer thing acts like a battery spacer. The electrical continuity is via the center pin. Just hot glue the spacer back in place, although it should just be fine left loose and held in place with the cap.

    Agree with Robray if there is nothing broken and no remenents of glue to suggest it was glued in the first place Id be inclined to leave it as is.

    My biggest fear is that I might die and my missus will sell my vape gear for what I told her it cost

    Wrap some Teflon tape around it and press fit it in.

    Sounds fair all round I guess.

    Not sure if there is some residue on the Deleon peice itself, there is some discolouration to it in spots.

    With batt in,all is fine, just worried about thebatterychange overs as such, as it does fall out as such and won't stay in self.
    but as long as I am paying attention I guess I can't lose it to easily lol.

    Cheers all

    One other benefit from the spacer floating is that atties will flush fit on the top cap.
