Calling experienced squonk mech mod fixers (esp. Coppervape BF V2)
My problem and attempted fixes start here.

Note I have a followup post; you have to check whole thread.

I actually have the blue one, btw.

I suppose my first post didn't get visibility becasue I only added to an old discussion. Maybe I should have started a new discussion under the product.

I no longer have mine but to fix your issues you need to replace the 510 pin and assembly. SKU 9620836

Are you sure your battery is making contact?

Sounds like your 510 is spring loaded and works fine in that regard, per your description. I find it odd that not 1, but all your atties have short 510 connections...if you watch the inner 510 while screwing on an atty, you will see the 510 tube lower as the atty makes contact and the spring does its' job.

Try it! If you see the movement, then you know for certain that the atty is making contact.

You may need to pry gently on the neg or pos battery connect, or you could have over-wrapped batteries and the wrap is blocking connection.

Try these for starters, let us know how it goes.

I could save some wobbly and leaking connectors by taking apart and shoving an o-ring under the insulator in the (far) past, but would trust manually adjustable pins much more.

My very first reg. squonker (an Aleader box) had the same problem, it worked just fine for 2 weeks with the same RDA, the moment I changed the atty on it for an other which had probably a longer pin, i felt a slight "crack" and from that point, most of my attys didn't want to make contact with it any-more. I just simply desisted with reg. squonkers for the future. (as i could never put my mind for soldering... de-soldering for to take it apart)

If you can make a break down and some photos about your connector, maybe it'd be a help (for to help)

I guess that phenomenon happens when the little spring's leg on one side gets stuck in something.
(which doesn't mean it looses all it's play)
