    ... line up the wick with the button? :confused:
    I have 3 Provari's and with all 3, the ZAP wick will not line up with the button or the display.
    This is a big problem for me.
    Has anyone ever completely disassembled the ZAP only to re-assemble to get the wick hole to line up with the button??
    Thanks. :)

    I've heard that people will get an rubber O-ring and place into the base of the Zap where it connects with the Provari to allow it to be torqued down more specifically to where you want the wick to end up.

    Do you mean placing an o-ring over the 510 connection that would butt up to the bottom base of the Z-Atty Pro?

    Yeah and the O-ring would be about the same diameter of the inside collar of the ZAP. I ended up being lucky with mine though, so I haven't looked into it more.

    Found an O-ring for one of my carto tanks that was a size that seemed to work. I was able to back my ZAP out a full 360 and it was still able to fire. Only slightly wobbly.

    Sweet!! Used a drip tip o-ring and placed it over the ZAP 510 connection. It screwed on just right!
    Everything lined up comfortably. No wobbles. It's tight. Pretty easy fix.
    Thank you for the tip. I'm good to go!
    I hope others can benefit from this info. :)

    I have to use two o-rings stacked inside the drip well on the Provari, but it now lines up perfectly. I wish I had done this a long time ago, since screwing the ZAP all the way down has carved a groove around my Provari's top cap :(

    I have not done this and not sure I would ever try it myself but ive heard of people removing the top cap on the provari and rotating it into the correct position and pressing back into place. IDK

    I cut a carto condom instead of using up o-rings from my drip tips, works fine!

    either the o-rings or "indexing" the top cap. very easy to take the top cap off...take something long go through the battery tube and tap it with a hammer. it is press fit in. there are a bazillion videos on youtube
