    I've been using the Kanger Subtank Plus for over 6 months. Today I went to take the bottom off to fill as per usual. The base came apart. I can't be the only one this has happened to. So how did you fix it? I'm thinking Loctite that requires Heat to take off or something like that. Is Loctite nontoxic?
    That's half the problem, the last time I put the bottom on I tighten it way to much, now there practically nothing to grip to take off the top part of the base. Suggestions?
    BTW the is a minuscule bearing under the airflow adjuster ring, looks like if that is lost the ring will not lock into place

    I don't have the plus but I've had the base come apart on my minis. I've simply press fitted them back together, being more careful when opening the tank after that. As for the ball bearing, you can use the tip of a ballpoint pen.

    Not sure if you are OK with you Subtank Base?

    But if your Not, and can't get it going, you can buy a Replacement Base.

    myfreedomsmokes had the sub-ohm plus on sale so i bought 2 :w00t:. With their wonderful quick shipping I'm vaping on my new one as I type this :thumbs:.
    In answer to my own question. I would not use loctite, all the formulas are toxic in one form or another. It might be ok in the dry state but I'm not going to take that chance.
