    Conductive grease on Mech mod switches?

    Just have a cheapy Smok telescope which I notice the switch doesn't always connect 100%. Guessing I'm losing a bit of current through the mechanism as well. Sure many here experience it.
    So does anyone use, or think conductive grease of some sort would be good for them, or have a good reason why not to try it?

    Have you tried disassembling and reassembling the switch. I know I've had to "rebuild" mine a couple of times. Can't find the damned loctite

    As I have mentioned before I am not a lover of grease. Lots of reasons, but main one its messy and attracts dust. I have had plenty of success with dismantling and rubbing contact surfaces and bearing surfaces with a soft pencil. Also works with keys in sticky locks!!

    Yes I have graphite powder, but unless its mixed with a carrier, its a little messy to apply. I use a little silicon liquid, but its not conductive, so only use that method on none electrical.
