    I received a new unopened Ammit MTL RDA last week, and while switching batteries, I saw that juice was leaking through the 510 connection. I am using this as a dripper. I took the pin out and don't really see any gaskets or o-rings, nor do I see any gaskets or o-ring in the spare parts bag.

    Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks.

    I kind of shelved it while looking for obvious answers. I plan on completely tearing it down tonight.

    Sitting here at work, with the RDA at home, I'm imagining the positive pin is the one fixed to the non removable part of the deck that comes in contact with the 510 pin.

    Since I'm using this as a dripper, I was thinking I was dripping straight onto the 510 pin which doesn't appear to be sealed in any way.

    Thanks for the reply and I'll let you know what I find. :thumbs:

    The squonking 510 pin on that RDA has holes in the side of the post, it doesn't go straight through the pin.
    Is the installed 510 pin a Phillips or Slotted? The Phillips is the squonk pin.

    Also the squonk pin might come installed from the factory.

    I checked, the squonk pin is not being used.

    Could be a bad peek insulator, I'd throw a small o-ring around the 510 pin just under the should and tighten it up.

    great!
    Let us know, most of the ammit RDAmtl i have seen comes with the squonk pin installed, you stated yours dont have it, so might be a positive pin not tighten correctly, as others stated you could solve it with a mini o-ring, or well, ask for a refund / replacement,

    i do own and use the RTA mtl version of ammit, i did lost my original positive pin, Geekvape sent me a replacement with some items to review!


    if pretty lazy to RMa you could try other pin or o-ring from other atty...

    Regards

    Yeah, might have to special order an o-ring, the local hardware shops don't carry ones that small. But, since the atty wasn't designed for one, it might present its own set of complications.

    The ammit I just got last week came with the regular pin installed. I had to install the Squonk pin.

    I've only ever seen one and it was installed already.
