    The center pin on an Onslaught RDA doesn't protrude. I put a screwdriver to it and unscrewed it a little until it protruded. Now it works on a mech mod with a hybrid connection.
    Problem?

    I guess it's not a problem.

    You'd think someone would have tried it before. Or maybe they did and didn't live to tell about it.

    Post a photo of the deck, please.
    Can the center post be "persuaded" to sit a little deeper in the insulator?

    IMO, loose parts are not a good idea, especially inside the tube.

    Cheers

    If you're going to do something like that (and I have also done that in the past), put a little o-ring around the base of the positive pin so that it still screws in and snugs up against something to prevent it from loosening and wobbling.

    I tried it on an A7 BF RDA years ago to use on my REO (not a hybrid). It shorted and collapsed my heat spring. Thankfully the REO had the protection that way. I wouldn't try it on a hybrid.

    Onslaught RDA installed on a Timesvape Dreamer Mod
    This mod has a constant contact switch so the battery is always snug against the screw. No rattling whatsoever.

    I never had a hybrid but I use KFL's on mechs. I take the pin out and grind the negative ring down a little so the positive pin sticks out. I figure nothing can go wrong that way. Depending on the tank if you screw the pin out there's a chance that it can screw itself back in. I believe there are some tanks where the pin can be screwed out and will stay where you put it. On Lemos you can put a piece of o-ring down the bottom of the hole the pin screws into so it won't go in as far. So it all depends on the design of the tank. I'm not familiar with the Onslaught.
