    Hey guys so I got my first hybrid 510 tube mod today and I am a bit reluctant to use one of my own RDA with the mech due to not knowing what is enough protrusion on the RDA . I want to use my medusa V1 with the tube mod so badly . I would like advice please guys. ( This is not my first mech mod. Just my first hybrid 510 mod )

    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Perfectly safe on the hybrid mechs.

    Just be 100% sure your batteries aren’t dented in any way and keep your eyes on the voltages.

    If you have any questions you can PM me or email to johan@lungcandy.co.za

    Oh @clydern
    While you at it - can you also post a pic of your hybrid mech mod and tell us what it is - just in case that might help for the others to advise you better

    After quite a few minutes of double / triple checking everything. I took my first hit . I honestly can see why hybrid 510 mechs has such dedicated followers . I am hooked ( 0.20 ohm build. Vaping on tempestus ) [​IMG]

    Idk if it's just me but I notice the slight decrement in battery sag. I am assuming it's due to the hybrid 510.

    What i meant was why do you say you understand why hybrid mechs have such a following?

    All mechs will have some sort of battery sag after a while as the battery runs down. Also depends on the quality of the battery and the resistance used

    Oh sorry . Due to it hitting harder than normal 510 mech ( IMO ) . But I am still a newbie. So I might just be feeling this way just because I got a new mod

    Maybe its because there are less components so the voltage drop is less
    I think someon does test the voltage drops on these mechs to find the ones with the lowest voltage drop and therefore they "hit the hardest" - all else equal

    Ahhhh. Thanks for the information. I am always willing to learn. Do you perhaps have any tips on removing the oxidation on the brass of my mod?

    To remove oxidation/patina On my copper mods, I use warm water and vinegar mixture (80/20), and just let it sit for a couple of minutes, then brush with an old toothbrush, and rinse properly.
    You could also coat the area with "all gold 36" leave for 5mins and rinse

    I was worried about the exact same things a few months ago when I first started using mechs @clydern .

    As @Maxxis said, that is enough of a protrusion, and just check your batteries everytime for dent's in the top cap.

    One other thing, with almost every RDA these days having a replaceable squonk pin you need to check beforehand that it won't move when you fire the mod. Just push it down on a surface to make sure it stays "protruded".

    Thank you man. Luckily the RDA I have doesn't squonk so I never unscrewed the pin. But I checked that the 510 pin was in securely due to the fact that the pin attaches to the deck. I am enjoy the mod at the moment. I am considering getting a 0.17 ohm build. I have song vtc 4 . So it should hit a bit harder than the build I have in now
