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

    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.
