MVP pro fix?
Hi, I'm new to this forum and semi new to vaping.

I recently switched from a pen to a box mod (mvp pro 3) within a month the ohms started to jump around,  I tried different stock coils, different builds, nothing fixed it. I found out its a common issue and it's a loose connection.  A YouTube video mentioned using pliers to tighten the connection where it's souldered. I did this and brine off my connection.  It's basically a wire with a piece of souldered metal on end that once connected to the main part inside the mod (sorry idk exact names I can post a picture though)  my question is if I can do anything aside from souldering to reconnect it. Glue? Like a glue for metals...idk. I'm clueless n very sad about this. It's totally my luck to break it. Haha. 


Thank you! 

- Krista

Hey krista. Welcome Bye

Pictures would be great. I wouldn't recommend glueing it, with the given voltage and possible temperature it's doomed to fail again. It could be potentially dangerous if the battery is hard shorted by lose leads. I have heard of a conductive resign, I've no clue what it's called or where to get it, so that's no help haha.
Is there no one you could ask to solder it properly?

Welcome aboard Krista! and sorry to hear of your connection woes Sad

I agree with gentlydoingit.. I think the only safe solution is to have it properly re-soldered.

RE: MVP pro fix?
I can't figure out how to add a photo. Do you need to use a third party site and post a link on this forum? 

But yeah,  I suspected that. Idk many ppl that vape or even many ppl that are "handy". I'm a female, with a female, in a nursing program. Not that I don't think females are fully capable of sautering....idk many that do. I'll have to ask around though.  


Any suggestions on a replacement? I liked the huge built in battery but I just got an ego one vt n really like the TC. I could give up a big, built in battery for TC but would love both if possible.  I'm leaning towards snow wolf mini and ivp4s. But again,  I'm a newbie n pretty clueless about a lot. 


Thank you so much for trying to help me though!

Yeah, you'll need a photo host site to upload pics.


There are so many tc mods around it's hard to recommend one. There's a boat load on here, maybe pick out a shortlist that you like the look of and we'll tell you the best suited.

RE: MVP pro fix?
Many vape shops will repair mods for you, I'd look into that if you have a shop near you. There are conductive glues, but they're generally not made to handle that much power, the one I use for hobbies is just for milliamp use. Really the only choice is to solder or buy a replacement as the other guys have said. gentlydoingit* is right, there are so many good mods available it'd be best to take a look around and see what strikes your fancy. If you need a suggestion, one of my favorites is the UD Balrog kit, it's a nice compact mod that should fit nicely in feminine hands, takes a single 18650 battery so you can change it out when it runs down, and it comes with a pretty good tank.

I'd have a look on some soldering tutorials online. And practice on a bit of wire or something else that doesn't matter.
