    I had the same problem with the Vika using a tank ring on my Minis but it does work on my 2.5 - the contact pin is a tiny bit shorter than other atties and that small bit of lost contact area means they wont fire - Only solution would be to file a tiny bit off the tank ring, which I think we discussed. I tried pushing the pin down but that didn't work for me. Perhaps some has a better solution?

    I tell people to push the pin out from the inside of the empty base, put their tank base without a coil on the mini without the battery in it.

    Then put the coil in a base, and load up the tank, then put the battery in. It should fire.

    You should not have to grind the ring

    Going to try that now, I did push the pin from the inside but didn't try the coil trick

    This harks back to the old days of setting cartos/tanks in mods with fixed 510 connectors

    And this is why I am a big fan of adjustable 510 pins on both mods and atomisers.

    You can also try ( WTH THE MOD OFF OR NO BATTERY INSIDE) using fine needle nose pliers to give the floating 510 in the provari a little upwards upness .. it might only need a fraction of a mm ?

    Don't get all Incredible Hulk on it or you will root the mod !

    It should be no problem if you have the right tools
