    This.........would be great for some.........as long as they have not damaged the threaded ring it attaches to. We need a source for that part and people will need basic soldering skills.(Batt. negative wire attachment). :thumb:

    I emailed the vendor who sent me to a site: Pioneer4You
    HURRY because you only have until June 30 and they do not have replacements due to Pioneer not sending any. They basically said "we tried to help Pioneer but they did not do their part" so we are ending our agreement with fixing their stuff"

    I did fix mine.
    I opened it. Was hoping and praying the wire was not broken because I have NO soldering skills. Inside my tube that holds the battery was loose so I put it back in place. Then I moved it again and stretched the spring (I do it with one of my Vamo's all the time) Once I stretched the spring mine worked fine again.

    If the above scares anyone, do not let it intimidate you. I am not all that handy of a person and I managed it. The hardest part was finding the right size Allen wrench and getting the wrap off

    Help! IPV Mini 2

    For some reason all of a sudden my display has been disappearing and I'm unable to see it when vaping.

    I thought initially it was the battery but I've thrown in some fresh ones and it will power on with the display but if I leave it for a few minutes the display completely goes out. Weirdly it will still vape... Any ideas?

    Maybe I put it in stealth mode or something like that? Im not sure if it even has that function haha

    My IPV Mini 1 does this as well. AFAIK there is not stealth mode on the Mini's. Once my Lost Vape E-Square gets here I am going to take my mini apart and see what is going on with it.

    Got my mini six months ago and it's been my main go to device got to like it a lot.

    Mine was doing the exact same thing, piss me off since it is the device I go out with, as you did I also did reinstalling batteries and re-screwing the battery cap back in a few times and in time it would work again.

    Three days ago it dawned on me to clean all inside battery connections including the battery screw cap so I grabbed some alcohol and a couple of Q-Tips first I swabbed top where the battery connecting is made then gave special attention to where there are any machined screw areas on the IPV and the cap. Now three days later working like a champ only time will tell if this was the issue but so far I'm good.


    Ps Also swabbed both ends of every battery I have.

    God Bless American.

    Sometimes I really miss my carto tanks... After a lil learning curve it was the easiest and most consistant set up I've used in my nearly 3 years of vaping. I loved them. I wish that I could open the airflow on em, I may use them again one day. Or pif to someone. I have a boatload of cartos still!

    :lol:! define boatload..... cuz we are in that same BOAT!!!

    vjdossey, I wonder if a standard Air Flow Controller might help?


    I hope you all are doing well, and still enjoying the IPV. Mine just never got the deserved love and hopefully someone will adopt it and it will then go to a new home. Yes, I decided it's time to sell it.

    Omg Katdarling, LOTS, LOL... I think I tried that afc, with no luck. Just recently I thought of drilling out the af holes on the cartos themselves. Have you ever tried that?

    I am in the same boat with my ipv v1 as well. It didn't get the love. Sad thing is, mine is darn near brand new. I had issues with my original one so I got it replaced. By then I had moved on. I literally used the new one doe less than 24 hrs, just to be sure the replacement was good to go. I have so much stuff I want to sell. Wish I could get people here to vouch for me so I could join the classified section. I don't qualify otherwise. I wonder where else I might be able to post vape gear for sale?

    Nope, I don't drill. If I can't mod it with a paper clip and a nail file, I'm out. (KatRule) ;)

    You might try FleaBay...... dunno! I'm sure there are a ton of FB pages as well. I've not dug into much research for selling there.

    I am right there with ya. I haven't done a whole lot of modding past simple tools. My husband has helped me with a few small crazy ideas but, vaping is not his thing... If ever you find something that works, let me know ;)
