    Ok folks. I need some encouragement, but also need tech help. Doesn't anyone know how to put a riva battery back together?? 3 weeks vaping today. Decided to clean a stardust. Watched the video, paused it. Hooked stardust to my battery, rocked the plastic tube to get it off the base like the video showed. Now bear in mind, I don't have much grip.....can't open most jars without an act of congress, but yeah, I totally ripped the top off my battery. The silver part where the button is. Played button, button, who's got the button......found the button......(played this game 2 more times before putting the button in a tin so I wouldn't lose it again). My kit came with two, so I can still vape except for when I'm charging (that'll be a fun 3 hrs). But I just don't have the money to replace this right now, and although the warranty is still good, I don't think this would be covered. lol When I push the innards down, it lights up, but there is a red wire sticking up that is probably supposed to attach to something in the part that came off. I know this is live and learn, and we all make mistakes, bad choices etc, but wow.....I have messed up every single thing I've done so far in one way or another. Do I need to chunk this and just wait til I can afford to replace it, or do you think I can fix it? Keeping in mind of course, that I'm a much better breaker than I am a fixer.
    Hey Deb, I would at least contact the vender you bought it from and tell them what happened. It might be covered under their warranty. You never know unless you ask.

    Yeah, I've been sitting here thinking about that. I can't imagine that it would be, but the worst they can do is say no.

    If I were driving a new car, and wrecked it while swerving to avoid a reckless driver, I wouldn't expect my dealer to replace it.
    tDCS anyone..?

    I agree but it is possible in this case that it was a faulty item instead of user error. Maybe it shouldn't have come apart so easily.

    I agree also cool breeze. Which is why I keep sitting here arguing with myself about whether to even contact them. I talked to someone who's gonna help me get another battery, so even if they don't, I'll be ok. In retrospect it was probably a dumb thing to do as I don't expect the battery is supposed to be an anchor to pull off a clearo tube, but I've seen a ton of videos where folks did just that, and I really don't have much grip or strength in that arm due to nerve damage. The kit I bought was supposed to be 2 five click riva 1100 mah batts. When they came, one was a 5 click and one was a 3 click. I did write them just to ask if they were the same battery since that was different. They said they were the same, so I let it go. It's the 3 click that broke. I just need to pray about whether to contact them or not.

    Perhaps it shouldn't have. The couple I have taken apart were gosh-awfully hard to get into pieces.

    I use one of my original auto cig size batteries to remove the tubes on my clearos and they haven't attempted to come apart. That is why I was wondering if maybe Debs battery wasn't put together quite as well as it should have been.

    In all the videos I have watched that is the way everyone does it so I would think you did it correctly. I do know to rock the clearo slightly as I apply pressure. To much rocking and the tube can crack but just the slightest little bit along with the pull just eases them off. I know you will do what ever you feel is right.

    Sorry, I failed to give my reasoning. I live on the central Florida Gulf coast. I've kept all my jooses and DIY supplies near my non-air conditioned garage work bench. I've yet to note any deterioration of those supplies. Therefore I would follow my own recommendation if I had the fortune and pleasure to follow your itinerary.

    Was stationed in the PI for a few months in '66. I must say that it's a most beautiful and bountiful country with some of the kindest folk I've met world wide!

    Yep, and it is a good way to get away from Old Man Winter too...

    If you can store it in an un-airconditioned garage then I should have no problems with what I have in mind... Thanks Iffy...
