    Gotta Smok Pyrex bottom coil, needed an ego adapter for my lavatube its too wide, the Ego to 510 adapters drop the OHMs to nonexistent and they dont work.

    Anyone else have that problem with those adapters?

    No, I have two, and they both work. Caveat--one sometimes doesn't work with some of my eVod tanks. When I ordered my first Provari, I also ordered the adapter. I realized the threading on some of my eVod heads didn't want to screw down on the adapter. Those would go if I forced them, but they were usually a bit sideways and didn't fit well. It seems the post inside was a little too high, and as soon as it contacted the firing pin under the tank, it just wouldn't fit down any farther. They did work, however, very carefully. I just ordered another Provari a couple of weeks ago, and the new adapter works very well. The pin isn't as high in this one, and I've not had any problems at all with it. I had noticed at least one very upset reviewer on their site about the adaptor. I guess they took care of it.

    Also, they sell the sealed one that won't leak onto your battery. I understand there are some out there that aren't sealed.

    yeah I dunno, they all look the same from different vendors, maybe my lavatube button inside the threading is worn down. Anyway took care of it, by ordering a vamo 5. thanks for the comment

    'Lift' da center posts on your batt, joose device and (if possible) da adapter.

    I've used MANY eGo/510 adapters. Solids are da best!

    which ego to 510 adapter are you using? those are actually hard to find and not many manufacturers make them.

    Just using a generic one I bought at a vendor in the Carolina's, but all look the same from different vendors. I even took the adapters apart and put them back together, they stink

    I have 6 of them from fasttech and they all work. Maybe you just got a dud?
