Have drip tips ever fallen off your Orion DNA Go pods?

  1. Yes, often, & it sucks

  2. Yes, but I found a fix which I'll share below

    So I've had my Lost Vape Orion DNA Go for about a year now, & I really love it. It's one of my favorite pods, & I own about 30 different pod devices.

    But I keep running into the same problem repeatedly on every new pod I install - no matter how I carry it or more careful I try to be, the black plastic drip tip invariably comes loose & falls off.

    After replacing it, it comes off again very easily, & doesn't stand any chance at staying on in my pocket. Then I usually lose it, & I'm forced to vape from the exposed metal post if the mouthpiece.

    I haven't tried the new pods with the knurling around the AFC ring (although I do have a package of two of them). I have been using both of the older style 0.25 & the 0.5 ohm pods with the same result.

    I've tried gluing the drip tip back on a few times, but no glue has been successful, even epoxy (although I think I might've mixed it wrong). Plus I'm reluctant to use glue anyway, lest I somehow inhale its residue, which I'm sure can't be healthy.

    Anyone have any experience with this, or know if this is a known problem with these older pods? No matter how careful or gentle I try to be when carrying my Orion, this keeps happening. It's a huge bummer because I really do love this system.

    Thanks! :)

    Sorry you are having this problem

    I have been using my Go and have never had a drip tip fall off- not sure why it would happen to you- and no you are not an idiot.
    I have read others have the problem with the drip tip falling off as well. Maybe an aftermarket drip tip would work better-

    If it is Plastic I would use the heat from the tip of a Soldiering Iron and basically weld it. If done properly no chance of inhaling burned plastic since you will not burn it only melt it.

    LV used to be such a good company known for quality, now they'll never get another dollar from me. Oh yeah, their customer service sucks ass too.

    I own 5 different mods from them, all very good, but their latest Drone was my last LV purchase, I sold that one at a heavily discounted price due to it's various issues.

    I love the Paranormal, although or it just may be the chip, 2 Orion dnas that now has better pods I have nothing to complain about. As for customer service the only company that ever replied to me and took care of the problem was Hellvape...

    The Paranormal is a solid mod, the last very good product from them imo

    I haven't tried anything yet, though I'll have to consider soldering or glue. I've just been keeping it at home out of my pocket so I don't lose the damn drip tip again.

    If the tips stay on those new pods with regular use, I'm all for it! :)

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

    So far so good....They feel tighter then the og but who knows, only had them 2 wks or so. If you lose the tip let me know I saved a few old pods I was going to try to rebuid.

    Good call, when I sold the Drone I picked up the Topside as well.

    LV sent out an email last December regarding the delay in the release of the Drone, in it they stated that there would only be a limited amount made due to the fact that they were refocusing strictly on pod based systems. This is not to say that in the future they won't make more box mods, but it was disappointing nevertheless. So many companies have jumped on the pod system money train, which is understandable, you're in business to make money, but some have continued to pay attention to us hobbyists as well as making pods.....LV hasn't done that in the past year.
