    thanks man I defintely appreciate the offer..

    pulled the ego controller mod apart and it's burnt up for sure..the smell of a burn resistor is prevalent..on the plus side it looks really easy to make it a mech. mod after pulling it apart..i'm taking pics to help others who have the same ordeal..going to the source tomorrow to pick up a switch..should be able to do it..I ran it solely in variable voltage mode anyway so the mech. switch will be the same just not as pretty which I don't care about lol..

    lol yep that's basically what i'll do before reverting back to cigars..I have no want to smoke a cigar again..it'll work for a bit

    and I heard lots of horror stories from the bolt with it failing because of bad wiring..I think the smoktech telescopic thing will be a buy in the near future just as a fail safe..

    Any time. :)

    If it's just the button then yeah, that shouldn't be hard to fix. Just get a simple button with a 2.5A or better limit and you'll be golden.

    yeah just need to know if the ground will pass through the circuit board and a few other things..it will be trial and error when I wire the switch..hoping tony will guide me on PM and it'll be working tomorrow night lol..i've modded many a flashlight so i'm pretty sure I can get it working but getting the help from someone that has done it will make things 300% easier..

    oh ok..so the negative path works through the body still? just remove the negative from the 510 connection and it'll make a path through the body?

    Super easy. Just look at the distance the current contact is from the bottom. Make sure it's in about the same place. B

    The contacts on the battery connector get correded easy. Be sure to clean them each time before you charge and also dab a little Noalox in them to aid the connection.

    Oh last thing you do need to bend the switch contacts. You will see when you fit the switch.
