    Default Giving the fuse mod a go tomorrow... Suggestions?

    Anything I need to know other than making sure the one side makes no contact with the mod? Thanks in advance

    I recommend Mundy style.

    You plug your 10 amp fuse in and she ain't goin' nowhere.

    ETA:

    I second Mundy's way, being able to screw the pad in is the way to go (I took the paint off around the bottom screw hole on the inside).

    I took Mundy's way one step further and replicated the bottom connection for a top connection, then covered the thing with modeling clay. This way I can use any off the shelf fuse without modding it and its plug and play. However, it's not like its that difficult to premake 5 fuses with bent legs. But this gives me a perfect fit where the fuse mount will not move around. Just be wary of the top fuse leg touching the back of the mod and bypassing the fuse (this would be rare but possible)

    Here's where I talk about my proceedure - SPRING? . . . . .. what spring?

    Third for the mundy way. I did one today and it worked out great! Put a couple of eyeglass nose pads on the bottom and in back. Got me to 3.7 from 3.42.

    Works good! Don't have a way of testing the vdrop yet, my multimeter is mia, probably at work. But I think it's helped. My 1ohm coil is vaping great on my RM2 Im going to need the connector eventually, and a better way to avoid a short on the other leg. Just used electrical tape for now lol.

    Bobas bounty just ordered. Need some new batteries as well. The red protective covering stuff is cracked and peeling all over...

    All i'd add is to test it first by deliberately shorting your atty - you blow a fuse but know it works.

    Just push the fire button and touch both posts at the same time with say,...a screwdriver. That will be a direct short. If the fuse is installed properly, it will blow almost instantly. Only short it for one second at the most; if the fuse doesn't blow within a second then it's being bypassed.
