[PSA] Warning about Vapefly Galaxies RDTA (potential 510 pin leak) https://ift.tt/2ycFjZJ

I got one from fasttech last week and gave it a go. Later that day I noticed it had lost a good amount of juice so I removed it from the mod (eleaf pico 75w) and saw there was a lot of juice under it in the 510 area.

I found a thread about this problem on fasttech, which I didn't see originally because each color option has its own discussion forum, and it was only mentioned on the stainless steel one. It's caused by a missing o-ring on the 510 pin and "There will be no leaking issue from the next batch as the factory will add a O-ring to the 510 pin/BF pin to avoid the issue, and the package will include two spare O-rings to replace."

Picture of the fix

Fasttech support has been nice to deal with and will be sending me the parts to fix it, but I'm pretty sure my pico is borked now. After the leak, every now and then it seemed like the battery was draining faster than I thought I was using it. One day I went to use it and it was completely dead. I put the battery in my external charger and it was reading around 1.9 volts. I thought it was just the battery going bad, so I set it aside to recycle and didn't even think about the mod being the problem.

Today after not using the mod for 4-5 hours I noticed it felt slightly warm to the touch and the battery had drained about 30% from when I last used it. It hasn't been auto-firing but something is obviously messed up inside. It's like it's attempting to fire but not fully doing it. I pretty much have to trash it now which sucks because I've never had any problems with the mod before this. I'm waiting to hear back from fasttech now.

If you get one of these make sure you check if you have that 510 pin o-ring or not.

[TL;DR] No o-ring on the 510 pin caused a leak which ruined my mod.
