    At risk of sounding like a noob. I was just curious of everyone's opinion. I have a Thor's hammer and it looks absolutely sick with an Aspire Nautilus sub ohm tank on it. Now I know this is not safe as it does not have and adjustable center pin. Can I use a heat sink to extend that center pin? For that matter could I use a heat sink to connect any other sub ohm tanks with non adjustable pins to my faux hybrids?

    I'm not smart enough to know if or how you can do this. But my first thought was to suggest taking a good selfie to give the reconstructive surgeon something to work from.

    So is it safe to assume no one knows the answer to my question? I would of atleast expected more wise cracks in reguards to safety.

    The right heat sink would work. Although if you’re asking, I question your understanding of this stuff. You said “doesn’t have adjustable 510 pin”. Big red flag as adjustable isn’t the requirement. Maybe just don’t.

    No I have a very solid undrestanding of mechs. Perhaps my vernacular could be questioned at best. So I appologise if my post was not gramatically correct. Please do not try to sew discord on my thread.

    I don't have one of those heat sinks so my question would be is does it have a floating 510 or adjustable 510. I would say if it's a floating 510 then it's not a good idea. If the 510 is adjustable it might be ok. Personally I wouldn't do it either way.

    It has an adjustable 510 . When it is adjusted completely in there is about 2mm to contact battery. I just can not see any reason why it would not be safe. I am just hunting opinions.

    It might be safe. I see people doing it but it just not something I would do. That's just me.

    I would say it's safe. In this case IMHO it's not comparable to cooking hot dogs in the toaster.

    What? Because you didn’t sound like you had the knowledge to make a dangerous setup not dangerous? That’s sewing discord? Haha. Good luck.

    I follow the old Rule of when in Doubt Don't. At least until you can prove to yourself it will work and not rely on some opinion you have on it. But that is just my opinion but I will not fuck with something unless I know for myself it will work.

    There are plenty of uses for an adjustable pin 510 heat-sink, for example I have a Geek Vape Peerless RDA Special Edition that I want to use on a mech. One post is secured by the pin and the heat sink will solve the 2mm problem. The Pharaoh also has an adjustable 510 but would be better suited with that heat-sink.

    Here's RIP Trippers using a mech mod with the Nautilus in 2014.

    Although you can use an adjustable heat sink to attach a non-compatible atomizer to your mech, it has various drawbacks.

    The most obvious would be the increase in size, and it makes most setups look stupid.
    But that's highly subjective of course.

    What's more important is the decrease in performance, because every moving part added will increase voltage drop.

    Absolutely and of course I agree. Also plan on using it on a mod with an already hideous voltage drop. But it will look very cool and be usable.

    How then do you innovate, learn to improvise? And no I'm not suggesting someone totally new go weld the battery contacts in a mech mod or anything like that. What I am suggesting is there's often small things you can alter here and there to get something working or fit just for yourself. How can you know if it'll work unless you try it and find out?

    I understand your point though. I'm just kind of seeing it as being stuck. I know for example that a penny held up in the fusebox on the driver's side of a 1979 Datsun B can get you another twenty miles, when you don't have the proper fuse on hand. If not for trail and error, we were stuck.

    How far would amoeba have got if they tried, got nowhere, threw up their cell and said "well not trying anything else because I don't know if it'll work"? Of course, yes I know amoeba lack brains, vocal chords. My point remains though, they survived because of trail and error.

    That has nothing at all to do with what was being discussed two weeks ago. Maybe go back and read the whole freaking thread.

    I actually did twice and a third time just to ensure cognition and comprehension. What was being discussed was if it was alright to use a heat sink to help lower a stationary 510 pin. Your reply indicated you would leave it alone, as in not try using the heat sink. You did not know yourself it would work and that is why you suggested not trying it.

    Am I clear so far? Rather, am I understanding the discussion, comprehending it? If not please do clarify what I misread.

    Is not innovating trying something new to solve a problem? Is it not improvising to try something different?

    You okay?

    I quoted myself where I say in plain English unless you can prove it to yourself~! That has nothing at all to do with Innovation or Improvisation. I own a shitload of tools and when something can't be done they come to be. But that has nothing in the fucking world with using a Heat Sink on a fucking MOD.

    Alright. I will consider why you seem to have conflated the two subject matters, then. That confused me as I thought you were comparing the two subject matters. I see now you were conflating them, or so it seems.

    I was NEVER confusing Subject Matters because the One Subject I was talking about was Heat Sinks and Vaping Devices. You my friend are the one who is confused.

    You know what fuck it I'll eat this shit sandwich either way. Not worth further concussion or frustration on either part. You get the next shit salad though, bud, no questions. I do not care if I misunderstood or did not, or you did or did not. Not worth buds. Fuck, all I know the damn universe is swapping our Earthen magnetic poles again just to laugh at us all.


    To clarify, my apologies if I did get confused by what was actually said. I possibly misread how the statement was phrased and that is on me. I saw either way it was a shit sandwich for either one of us to own up to a mistake. Such banal things are not worth losing friends over, when both friends get angry over them. I walked away bowing my head. Again, my apologies. But you get the next one, even if you might think you're correct, are even correct. Fair is fair after all.

    Not meaning to be contrary as I thought the same thing. When I added the heat sink (not an adjustable) to my mods there definitely was more electrical current. I'm guessing there is more pressure on the pins with fresh copper.
