    I have puresmoker icon and the performance degrades in about a couple of weeks or so. Noalox is a must for this mod. I love the Mako V1 as it needs little maintenance. I think I only cleaned it twice (threads, contact point) when I got it on April or May. The switch gets sticky though but can be fixed with wd40.

    I read in other forums that noalox is a must for mechanical mods. Is this true? I only use noalox on my icon but not on my mako. IME, my mako (maksi) beats the icon when it comes to vapour production. But when im out and about, i use the icon though as its smaller and i love the icon's switch.

    Hi sprakkattak....I've never used Noalox on either my Mako (Midi) or my GGTB,......i've only cleaned the Mako once since i got it in July, and only then cos i felt i should, not because of any performance drop off...

    the GGTB i have to clean every week or 2 as i do notice a drop off....Imeo recommends a little vaseline on the threads, thats all.

    I use Noalox on all of my mods that have threads. The only parts I don't use it on is contact points and atty threads.

    same here - Noalox on my Icon threads keeps em working smoothly but never needed it on the bat contacts - it's been flawless for 3 months of hard usage now.
    However I also have the smallest Precise model and it absolutely won't work without Noalox on the contacts - it's a real pain.

    While I've never used Noalox on either my Mako or Don, it certainly can't be a bad thing.... in fact I'm sure it would help a great deal in keeping the threads running nice and smooth.

    Also, if it really does improve the electrical contact that's an added bonus making it well worth adding to your shopping list I would have thought. :)
