    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.
