    1. It's a personal vaporizer. You load it with juice, a battery, and an atomizer or cartomizer.
    2. You hold it in your hand, feed juice to the atty/carto as needed, put the mouthpiece to your lips, and then push the button.
    3. Vape.

    It works like a charm and doesn't rattle when used as intended.

    If you're bothered by the door rattling against the body, you're probably doing this:

    Stop doing that.

    I wrapped some small rubber bands around my batteries and my reos have been silenced.

    There are a few scenarios that might cause your door to rattle, but I will leave those to your individual imagination!!!
    Love the thread Tripp!!!

    I don't mind people complaining about it.

    Its an issue for enough of us that we have found ways to fix it.
    So in a way I guess it was broke ..... hence the "fix"

    My very first grand with the flat black anodize never rattled once though.

    My black mini with the glossy anodize was pretty bad.

    And the new nickel plated one is even worse. I notice it when its in my shirt pocket making noise with almost every step.
    I'm pretty sure the nickel plate is applied thinner than the anodizing .... that would explain why its looser than my other one.

    I understand what your saying though. It does work perfectly when used as intended.
    But I do sometimes let it leave my hand and enter my shirt pocket ... thats when the trouble starts.

    Its certainly not a deal breaker and I keep buying them though :)

    I agree about the nickel plated one as mine has the most rattle as well. It never bothered me with the other two but this one is annoying enough to attempt a fix..... Where did I put that electricians tape? May try the rubber band trick as well since I use the batteries across multiple reos and there is a variance from one to the other. Ultimately I agree it is a small problem in the overall scheme of things but can be annoying.

    Lol... funny thread!

    Whats so hard about wrapping electrical tape and/or rubber bands around batteries?? If this is the biggest complaint about a Reo, I'd say we're doing pretty well... this is a high-quality problem...

    Guess some of us are nit-picky. I hate rattles. If there is a rattle in my car it drives me nuts till I get it fixed. I got a silver door and it will rattle a little more than my black ones unless I have the tape on the batt postitioned right, usually folded over some.

    As for the Reos not being perfect, there are always vairations in processing -especially machining operations - and ways to minimize them that I've studied in my work as an engineering technican at the Naval Avation Depot where I work. It's sometimes called satistical process control or other terms. It's pretty interesting stuff from a manufacturing standpoint. With the Reo, the amount of anodize and paint affect how tight the door is too. That's pretty tight tolerances for items like these. Given that, Rob maintains a really good quality control operation. Peeps are always impressed with the quality and workmanship of my Reos.

    I think there is some variation in batt diameter too. I put tape on the right inside of my minis too after reading about the batt movement situation. Works good and thanks to you guyz that discovered it.

    :)

    I thought this image made it plain that this thread was meant to be humorous.

    I've enjoyed it, but I thought it might stir up things a bit.

    If I wanted to stir things up, I'd say that you don't order enough vaping gear and you should step it up. :p
