    so the negative connection around the floating 510 pin will eventually fall off because it's press fitted! Damn they had such a good product too. Here's a good video showing the problem:



    I know a lot of VU members recently bought this Mod. Just in case it happens to y'all this can be a good temporarily fixed until a solution from Wismec:

    https://www.amazon.com/Sciplus-Electrically-Conductive-Soldering-Wire/dp/B000Z9H7ZW

    It's not the best but it's conductive. Not like regular glue. Hope this helps!

    Too bad that happens with Wismec stuff. I read people were worried because their other stuff had the problem. Then I read people reviewed the Predator and said not to worry. That they fixed what was wrong. Like "new and improved". Then it came out and a bunch of people preordered it. Now the 510 is popping out on a bunch of them. Wtf? Ive never owned anything from that company and probably never will. I could have bad information or and its exaggerated ?

    I just use mostly cheap POS Kanger mods and have never had a problem.
    but then I do not need 100+ watts of power.

    Yes and no frank. There were issues but not as catastrophic as people make it seems. I'll break it down like this:

    Ok a lot of people complained bout Smok alien. You heard by now Paint chippings, etc..

    Well Wismec and aliens probably sold a million. And when you have this much people buying. Also more people are going to complain! So the complains stack and you think everything is failing everywhere. But it might be 1 complaint per 100,000 sold for example.

    Because ask people on VU. The alien is a very reliable mod despite issues with paint. And same with the releaux rx 2/3 and 200s. The 510 had some issues but not please recall send it all back!

    You feel me? Cause till this day the Wismec reaulux 2/3 is a great mod.

    Before you do take a look at the Kylin. It's basically the same. But I heard the kylin airflow directs more to the coil. While the Ammit dual airflow aims straight up. Which means the kylin has better flavor.

    Do Lil more research. But that's what I heard bout the kylin and ammit


    The product was nearly identical because Stephen Z ( a designer at GeekVape) left and created vandy vape. He probably took the Ammit design with him. That's why they are damn near identical with minor diffrences.

    I wish we could get actual sales figures on the various mods....
    Many of the aliens seem to die about 3 months in.

    Sure, I think the Ammit looks nicer, the build quality is much better and for some reason, it has better flavor. It also offers a larger capacity when used in the smaller configuration and plug, for people who prefer using single coils.

    The Kylin doesn't come with a plug for single coils and holds less juice, in the smaller configuration, It does however, have slightly better o-rings, supporting the glass section.

    I have several... and I mean several box and mech mods. I can say that if you want a good box... alien (even though the paint is all but gone on mine) is a far better mod than the predator. The alien seems to not mize the batteries as fast, and doesn't get as hot running 140+ watts. The predator kills the batteries in no time and doesn't seem to have enough battery vents.

    I preordered both, and have zero issues with the predator 510. I run the nitecore 40 amp 18650s, as the cheaper batteries tend to fail regardless of the mod.

    I do not build my own coils. I use the smok cloud beast king on the predator and the smok cloud beast on the alien. I use the t12 and t8 coils with 3mg juice.

    kdavi332, wouldn't it make more sense to run the smaller tank (not to mention lower power needs) on the Predator? Seems like the bigger tank should go on the mod that does better with heat and battery life. I *very* well could be missing something obvious as I'm fairly new to vaping. :)

    Strigamort,

    Call me crazy, but I don't like the beast king tank on the alien mod. Maybe it's due to the fact that my alien looks as if it were bathed in acid. Hehe.. guess that's why they call it the alien...

    I carry both of them with me just about everywhere I go.

    I'm fairly new to the box mod speal. I was a die hard mech mod user until last October.

    Use only VTC5A batteries, and, in addition, just fix the 510 problem:
