    so i just got an orion v2.1 off the classifieds. worked for about one day, until i realized there was juice all in the inside and all over the switch. everytime i would hit the button it wouldnt stop firing.. so i took everything out, sprayed it with canned air, and then let sit in a bowl of rice for over 24hrs. put it back together and made sure the switch was lined up with the button. it worked!... for about 20 minutes.... now it wont fire at all. no matter how i press it or how hard it wont fire..

    sorry for this, im just really sick of seeing all these "awesome" and "good quality" made products that are over 200 dollars, and come with multiple issues. if im paying 200 dollars for a mod it should work flawlessly. my provari wasnt even this much and its never miss fired once in over 6 months. like really?

    Electrical Contact Cleaner is a liquid spray that will dissolve the eliquid and clean the electrical contacts. Local auto store ought to have some.

    i love ss mesh and would rather vape that only. and i need something small so the orion is perfect for that. so its only my luck that this would happen.

    It's just a fluke. There are very few other hybrids out there that even have electronics at all to be honest. Most are mech mods.

    well,,the hype about these spendy hybrids is they are perfect,but this one leaks all over the place ,that is a little more to the point of what i was trying to make in the first place

    i almost went into the high end mods until i realized,,for 40 bucks i could get the exact same experience and not have to worry so much about losing\destroying it

    Careful with the Contact cleaner, don't want to get alot on your skin- Definitely not in the eyes.

    if i buy a new switch do i have to replace it myself, or does he send a whole new internal board with new switch already mounted? im not an electrician, so id rather not have to buy a souldering gun and attempt to rewire this 200 dollar "amazing" hybrid.
