    Yeah that was he one I was talking about. Was hoping for the SJYFMYTK version as it would be probably about $80!

    True, I guess they figured they better sell it as brand name first....

    Don't have any Nuppins for ya but I unearthed a couple of THUMP atties in my stash. Still brand new in boxes.
    Could be good Catfish (or Brewfish) candidates. Was gonna take em to my B&M guy here but you can have em for $15 a pop if you're interested.

    Seal? If you mean under the cap you can use an oring from something else or plumbers tape to make a couple wraps around enough to seal.

    Just FYI it's a lot better looking in pics.
    Still hits like a train but it's not the nice burly ultem 1000, my buddy has one and it feels kinda cheap.

    Anyone know? My Armageddon is my only mod with silver plated contacts. It's also the only one that keeps arcing.

    I had this happen to the Armageddon I had and it's kinda stupid. But luckily it's an easy fix, gotta take the contact out and check it right where it makes contact with the 510. There's most likely a spot causing it to arch. I just sanded the whole area that makes contact but if you can feel the spot you might be able to get away with just sanding that one little spot.

    About a week ago I took the 510 out, sanded that and the contact, Cleaned both with alcohol and qtips, put it back together and applied deoxit gold.

    I haven't had any issues with my copper contacts. (11 other mods)

    It's already arcing again. Did yours arc from both sides of the contact like this?

    This is why I sanded the whole thing. I think the arching problems have something to do with different metals making contact at the same time? That's why I sanded the whole area and even rounded those edges off a little the second time around so there was no sharp points.
    Armageddon has basicly admitted they used shitty contacts but didn't fix it so it kinda sucks but sanding off the little bit of silver plating that hasn't fallen off by it self may be the only answer? I had to do mine twice as well and basicly had the same problems as you.

    When you did it the second time, did it fix it for good? Or didn't you sell yours?

    Yeah I sold it but I don't think it ever did it again. I used it for a good couple weeks before I sold it and it didn't arch at all. You could contact Armageddon but they're just gonna offer you to send it in and do the same thing you can do yourself. I'd save the shipping money and get better contacts.

    I've heard there's a bunch of problems with the clone. Not that I'm super surprised I mean when you take a mod that's already kinda cheap and clone it bad things normally happen. (IMO!)

    Yeah I talked to Ariel directly but all he offered was to send it in to have them "fix" the contact. I knew from our talk that meant clean, polish and alcohol just like they told you to do. I asked if he could send me better contacts and he said only the ultem has full silver.
    I honestly think they just went to cheap on the contacts. Even on the v2's after they knew about the problem. Kinda put me off from Armageddon and that sucks because I used to like them a lot.

    it does suck. basically we paid $100 for plastic. Then you get to buy your own contacts and 510.

    My Ultem arcs but I figured that was typical of silver contacts but I'm new to this whole thing. I just clean with q tip and rubbing alcohol. But didn't know Ultem version had pure silver vs plated. I guess with pure the arcing is conductive I read earlier? Still I clean it regardless.

    I don't want to put no ox id somewhere that close to a squonk bottle to help prevent arcing lol. Maybe I'm being paranoid but that sounds like cancer to me if I over did it like my clumsy ass usually does and some got its way into my vape.

    Is this a different Pico?

    Pico I'm thinking of costs $16, fancy sleeve for 30 euros = $37.18 PLUS postage at today's exchange rate......

    I only watch his reviews when I really need a good laugh.I find it amusing that for somebody who owns a vape-shop he knows/understands very little about the subject of vaping.
    I've bout every device he's ever said was crap and loved them all.Except the Capo Squonker that is.That 1 I decided to skip but not because of his review.If I recall it was something (Vaping With Vic) said.
