    Eleaf Pico fun

    I just finished replacing the boards in 9 Pico's , the boards are from fasttech not quite as good as the genuine ones.
    Slightly under powered and a firing delay but for the price they're ok, Only one was DOA the rest are fine.

    Three of them have broken usb ports, the rest have dead boards.
    The metal shroud around the usb port is the weak spot hardly any solder holding it in place, the replacement boards usb ports are stronger.
    I wish everyone would just use an external charger.. but that will never happen

    The old boards are trash, I'm repairing them for a vape store to be sold as refurbished units, takes about 15 mins to do a board swap,
    quicker If I had a decent soldering iron, my one is almost dead.

    I hope youre not doing this for slave labour rates because if you arent, how would it be worth it for them to sell as refurbs over new units

    We are all under slave labour conditions here in Adelaide.

    The Eminently Honourable Minister for boats that don't float, Christopher Pyne, makes sure of that.

    And the people of Sturt keep voting for him.

    We must be the laughing stock of the nation.

    Sorry OT. Nice handywork fixit.
