    So on my mod (Minikin v2) the battery spring was loose and the mod wouldn't start beacuse of that. I solved the problem by putting some white adhesive gum (don't know the word) on the top side of the battery slot that were loose (see picture). The adhesive it self do not touch anything vital (like the chipset or any wires, it only touches the plastics inside). Everything seems to work fine, by that i mean like the device it self doesn't turn off by it self like it used to do before. Also took a few hits. Yet i haven't encounterd any problems. So my question is: Is it safe to vape on it?

    (sorry for my bad english, not a native english speaker)

    Hi and welcome,
    It's hard to judge.
    I might have used an epoxy that would be non conductive and not subject to melting/deforming.
    If I use "tack" on paper products, it leaves an oily stain.
    Check the repair every few weeks just to be sure the tack is not deteriorating.
    Do you have access to something like a sugru or similar product?

    cheers

    That or a similar product is what I presumed you used. Since it does not dry or harden, it may not be as permanent as you expect.

    Cheers

    Personally, I would find a permanent solution like epoxy or Sugru.
    But yeah, I would vape it until I had the time/materials to fix it properly.

    Cheers

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I have to agree that you need to find a more permanent solution. There are too many accidents with the batteries we use that we don't need to invite an incident from a loose wire. Just my :2c:.
