    Benefit of Electrical Grease

    I use a mechanical mod. That aside this can be helpful to those using regulated mods as well. I was sitting here briefly and experiencing some low quality vaping. I had already replaced a coil in one RDA and knew the other RDA was fine as far as coil/s. I checked and tightened the battery cap on each mod, two.

    These steps taken I figured vaping ought to improve. Vaping did not improve. Well, I thought the next step would be to lube the mods up. This entails putting a dab of Ox-Gard (brand) electrical grease on the firing pin and the leaf spring firing arm. Electrical grease comes in a variety of brand names, No-Ox, Ox-Gard, Rust-Ease and so on.

    After applying the dab of grease with a cotton swab, I turned the swab around to the dry end and wiped away excess. Then, vaping did indeed see improvement. Electrical grease contains trace amounts of zinc which is highly conductive. This helps to better the flow of current from the battery to the RDA, tank, atomizer. Thought such a benefit warranted notice. So, if you're having a crummy vape next time you might want to consider a dab of electrical grease. :)

    That grease is conductive while OK for end cap threads you should NOT use on the pin or connector unless you want a short with blowing yourself up! SUICIDE I TELL YOU

    Dielectric grease I can see and I've used it on threads and on 510 pins but conductive grease no way. Not everyone gets it and I can see a novice filling the 510, screwing on the atty and boom.

    If the image displays correctly it is clear, or will be with this that I'm discussing the brass screw on the right hand side of the picture. This is a carry over suggestion from using Reo Grand mods as well. The Reo site itself sells the grease. Plenty of Reo users apply this grease on the positive firing pin / screw and positive carrying leaf spring / arm. Here is the compound I discuss using and call electrical grease. The promotional material praises the benefits of having zinc in the compound. This company is not the only company what produces such a compound and as I stated it comes sold under various brand names. I chose to be generic and call it electrical grease, grease used to help electrical connectivity. Thus far there's not been any significant reporting of suicidal explosions, or anyone vaping nasty grease through the 510 connection pin thank you. :)

    In that situation the conductive grease is ok but on a regulated mod the only place to use it is on the 510 itself and that's a bad idea. I think the replies you got were because you were advocating greasing up the 510

    Ah, okay I was thinking of greasing up the firing pins like in a mechanical on some of the regulated ones what did not obscure them. :) * goes to look at some of his regulated ones, it's been a while *
