    Hi, my V3 flip mech mod bottom contact seems to be sticking and thats a huge problem, so I tried vaseline sparingly with a q-tip and it still seems to stick.

    Ive taken it apart and cleaned the contacts. But after research and contradicting results, I'm not sure what the safest way to go about cleaning it is without ruining anything.

    Take it apart and clean it.... this is something you should do often.... Wether you use the mod or not.....

    get some fine sand paper. .. remove sharp edges. Replace magnets or spring. Lube with dielectric non oxidizing grease.... very light coating. ... lubrication is good but lubricants tend to attracked dirt. So use it sparingly and only where actual contact occurs.

    I use Wrights Copper Cream to clean my Mod's, works very well. Once you do a good cleaning on the contacts and threads use a tiny dab of Deoxit Gold.

    I use supermarket-grade copper cookware polish on contacts (more than enough, and just as effective as Cape Cod and other expensive copper polishing shit sold by vape shops). For the mods' exterior, dishwashing liquid cleans up everything without removing the patina.

    For sticky sliding bits that conduct electricity, I use graphite - i.e. I run a lead pencil all over the part until it's nice and black.
