My Vamo died...
« on: August 01, 2013, 09:06:13 AM »
Hi all. Have a question. My Vamo died a few days ago and would appreciate it if someone could help me. Right now, the light on the display doesn't come on when I put batteries in it did in the past. I've also noticed that the spring is much easier to screw on the bottom than it was.

Any help appreciated...

Clean and buff the contact points of the spring and bottom cap. Also clean the threads for the cap. You also may have to stretch the spring to make better contact.

Thanks for the ideas Breaktru. All I had to do is stretch the spring some and it started working again! Good call my friend.

Good to hear it was an easy fix.

Connections can give you a lot of trouble in mods.  You really have to clean things routinely and make sure things are in good shape (like the spring).  That's why all my stuff is hardwired in my mods, no maintenance.  Of course the downside of that is it's a pain to replace the battery when it wears out.  At least the cells I use seem to hold up really well.  It's always a trade-off.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad it was an easy fix too. I hated it that it just stopped working. But all is good now and I've learned a lesson. I'm sentimental about my Vamo because it's the only higher end mod that I've had. Everything else was an eGo.
