    Hello, yesterday i bought the geekvape aegis solo and i couldnt help but notice the battery cap doesnt seem to screw all the way in, it doesnt even sit flat on a table. Does this happen to all the solo's or i got a dull one; should i return it; Thanks!

    What battery do you have in there? It's not a protected battery is it?

    Is the oring causing it to bottom out, or the threads not cut on the plug/opening? Either way, if it's new, return it, I don't think that's normal..

    I don't have the solo, just have the old 100w aegis, the plug screws in flush with the base. Not sure yours is a problem other than an annoyance, but I would still return it. If nothing else, it probably doesn't seal correctly and the battery has to be just a bit looser inside, a little wear on the spring and it's going to be not making contact.

    i also own the first 26650 aegis and the battery cap does screws flush. I am not sure if the battery is a bit loose it doesnt rattle or anything but i hate the fact that is so wobbly when i place it on a flat surface because of that protruding cap, i will return it i am just afraid that the shop will me that is how some solo's are designed or something like that.

    This happened after you installed the battery for the first time?Is there a chance you crossed the threads?

    I dont believe that the threads are crossed or anything, oddly enough i asked for the guy in the shop if i could open and try the mod when i bought it and he seemed to used some force when he placed the battery i guess he was in hurry, even if the threads are damaged it wasnt my fault so i am gonna return it

    I realize that this is a slightly older thread but...

    I wanted to pop in and say that with my Solo it's really easy to get the battery compartment cover cross threaded by just a tiny fraction. Although it will screw on perfectly well, it isn't actually flush when it happens and will definitely leave you with an unstable mod. I found that a little dielectric grease on the threads fixes this nicely.

    I have a Solo, and for what it's worth, I have to really compress that o ring before turning the cap. It 'feels' like it would like to cross thread. That is, the o ring is so thick that if you don't compress it, it just doesn't want to engage.

    Don't know if that's relevant to your problem, or not.
