Hybrid? What about non adjustable pin attys
Can I use attys with non adjustable centre pins without risking shorts? If not, what if I use a heatsink like https://www.fasttech.com/p/2443403?

If your atty's pin protrudes about 1mm or so minimum past the body of the 510 connector, you'll be just fine with a Calvert.

The contact in the switch is the adjustment for battery rattle.

Otherwise, use the heat sink ;-)

Yes, that item will work.

FT should really start selling adaptors though (which add much less height I mean).

My recent solution was to scratch a little dent in the middle of the centre pin, and then drop a blob of solder on it to make it protrude enough to avoid shorts.

No FT. No comment. __________ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVQawEZ2uuw

If you can remove the center pin then just sanding the threads a little shorter is really easy to do.
