Just make sure that when the spring is fully compressed, it has a smaller height than the cup, and you will have a solid contact, no shorts, and a really steady mech.

    Fantastic Zen!

    But peeps, is ur Ba Gua button still that hard after some usage? A week into play my OEM buttons seem to have softened up. Not that smooth as a spring-loaded one would be, but quite comfy already. I believe those magnets need some breaking-in.

    As far as I know a magnet won't loose any of its power at all over time. Well, maybe after years and years but I've read that even after a hundred years it will only have lost something like 90-95% of its original strength.

    Unless you use some method to treat the magnets.

    its helps... really it's that cup... when you got a hot spring, that's a sure sign of a short. The cup assembly that comes with the spring replacement order allows for the device to have a solid connection through and through... why I mentioned the compression of the spring needs to be smaller than the lip of that cup. You also want to flatten out your spring ends so you have a whole coil loop as a bse on each end. Since your negative post is pretty much your mech as a ground, you want to have a really solid connection on that switch. A spring that is wobbling around is just asking issues and it's why I love that cup. Top down.. Screw : Post : Button : Cup... That's your connection with the assembly. The spring can add / take away from overall impedance in the device, so I choose to work with brass springs (also it tends to be softer). Any hardware store worth it merit will have a collection of springs you can buy by the fist full. Once you have the button dialed in, it's a damn fine device, probably my used one right now (until the Paps shows up.. we shall see) ... grin.. just realized, I think I've put waaay too much time tinkering with the Segelai switches and trolling mechanical forums.

    Cheers. Shouldn't have a problem finding a decent spring. Also the shipping from Team Rampage is the fastest I've seen. Just 4 days to reach the country side of Norway.

    Haha yeah. People are going to brag about how many bagua repetitions they can pull. And then you'll start seeing ads "I got ripped in 2 weeks using this simple Korean technique. Click to learn more".

    Many of the recent crop Chinese clones are of very good quality.. Here is what Vapesquad (They review many high-end mods also) had to say regarding EHPro's EA mod clone:

    Review: The EHPro EA Mod Clone - Vape Squad

    We were also surprised — maybe even shocked — at how well the EHPro EA Mod clone performed. We tested, re-tested, and tested again, and through all of it the EHPro clone performed extremely well; almost unbelievably well. It fired consistently, exhibiting no misfires and uncommonly consistent voltage output. We also experienced extremely little voltage drop with the mod: on average, it retained an almost unheard-of 99.3% of battery voltage to the atomizer, a drop of only .03 volts on a 4.2-volt battery. We weren’t quite willing to believe it at first, but this Chinese-made clone mod with what EHPro says are gold-plated brass contacts outperformed just about everything we’ve ever tested.
    Also, the MKB-TS (GGTS Clone)

    The Rainbow Heaven MKB-TS - Vape Squad

    Performance of the mod was unexpectedly good for a Chinese mod. The use of brass contacts internally seems to improve throughput greatly, and the MKB-TS exhibited an average voltage retention of approximately 92% in our tests (a drop of .33 volts of a 4.25 volt charge) both with adapters and without, putting it up there with some of the best we’ve tested.
    I've been known to be a "mod-snob" over the years here, and have owned many high-end mods. In fact, I rarely touched a Chinese mod before the Terminator-C and MKB-TS came on the scene. As long as the Chinese continue producing nicely machined, great performing mods, I will buy them..
