How to open this stuff?
The title (sort of) says it all.
I've submitted an email with the following content to EHPRO:

Dear EHPRO staff,

Been recently inquired by a friend whose EHPRO Mod 101 somehow got vaping fluid inside its electronics (some sort of tank leak I guess).
The battery inside suffered an over-discharge and the mod misbehaves since the leak happened. The fact this happened is obviously related to lack of proper internal electronics isolation, something I can fix with ease.

Being an electronics repairman I'd like to request how to open this stuff. I've managed to stick long flat nose pliers grabbing the anode circuit board but it doesn't seems to rotate or come out at all. Any
information and/or tips?
Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
Salvador Barqueros Provencio


Any knowledgeable Good Samaritan in these matters around here?
Thanks.

Cheers :-)

Top is press fit and would have to come off to get to internals.

Not really any way to get a hold of it to remove.

leading on from above post, if you want to get in the top, then maybe you could screw an old atty base into the 510 and use it as a sacrifical tool to clamp some grips onto, to try and lever the top out?

disclaimer: i have literally no idea if this will work, or if you'll ruin the 510 threads, or somehow fuse the atty into the 510

It could be glue too. Try a heat gun

You won't be able to access the circuit board from the bottom I'm afraid.

I assume when you said you could 'grab' the circuit board, you are referring to the black insulating ring which sits around the internal positive pin. There are two opposite cut outs which look like you can grab and rotate the internals but if you shine a light into the mod (and look past the two cutouts) you should see that that there are no threads for the insulating ring and it is actually sat inside a slightly wider recess/lip which is milled further up into the top of the mod.

As per Viking65's, Zion21's and dansansome's comments, I would expect the top to be the only way to access the internals and it's likely glued in. Heat gun and pulling with something to grab, screwed into the 510 would be the way I'd attempt take mine apart.

All good suggestions as I believe this to be press fit + glue. Obviously, it wasn't meant to repair, but I've done worse :)

Heat, pressure, and patience. Sorry to hear you've had trouble. Good luck.

Should be no glue at all.

I once had to repair a Vamo and just press fit.




dansansome's idea of using an old atomizer will probably be best option to wiggle the top cap out.

Threads on Ehpro should be SS unlike the Vamos brass threads

Just be careful when wiggling it out or you could pull wire from the circuit board or damage something on it
