XCube Ultra
I have an XCube Ultra. Have had it about a year. Last night I went to take out my batteries to put on charger and one of the battery "sleds" (left bottom) snapped off. Not sure if this can be fixed and how?? Would greatly appreciate some help/advice since I am now unable to vape ????

Thank you!!

RE: XCube Ultra
Almost anything can be fixed, all depends on where it broke and how mechanically inclined you are...

RE: XCube Ultra
Thanks for the reply. So it broke right on the bend. Comes straight out from inside the mod and then bends up to make a platform for the bottom of the battery. It snapped right on the bend.

I managed to bend upward part of it that comes straight out. Enough to make a connection with the battery. I'm just not sure how safe that is. I would like to completely replace it. Not sure if that is possible or not ????

RE: XCube Ultra
If you're handy you can order a replacement battery housing and replace the broken one but honestly if you've had it for a year, getting a replacement mod would probably be the wisest choice....with most mods, where the battery housing sits there isn't anything there that a few dabs of hot glue would harm.

Yep. Hot glue is fine. I hotm glued the 510 on my Tarot Pro 160w - it needed it - tends to spin. Now it works better than new.

Sir Eddie, one of these days you will need to explain to me the difference(s) and similarities and where the compliments end and the insults begin with Brits, Welsh, Scots, etc.... as for the glue gun, I've seen so many hobby youtube videos that use hot glue for different projects...

I've never used it - I may have used a pail worth of Krazy Glue, Epoxy and JBWELD...but strangely never hot glue.... Sad
