For whatever reason I couldn’t start a new thread in the hardware section, so please forgive me as this was the next best spot to post…
My question: Has anyone purchased an RX300 very recently that can either confirm or deny that the 510 connector has been changed/updated?
I have 2 RX300’s that are paperweights now due to shotty Wismec 510 connectors falling out of the body of the mod.
The female 510 connector has no threads and therefore no retaining nut. I didn’t see any evidence of where it was soldered in place, so I figured CA glue was a good fix and maybe even what they used in the factory… After super-gluing them back into place they held like a champ, only problem is I’m getting no/low atomizer warnings now. I’m assuming that’s because the CA glue is acting as an insulator between the female 510 connector and the mod body/housing. So maybe I was wrong and it was solder they used to secure the connector in place (terrible idea).
So, being in the market for yet another mod I began my search. Two criteria: 4 cells & stainless steel.
That search quickly turned me right back to the Wismec/Jaybo RX300 as it’s the only mod that meets both of those criteria. Neither the Maxo nor the Gx350 are available in stainless.
I happened to stumble across a video of JayBo talking about the new RX Gen3 in which he more or less openly admits the previous 510 connector flaws. So seeing how the designer is aware, I was curious if they had any plans to address that very issue with the RX300. So, I sent JayBo himself a message on Facebook and he never read the message, forget responding.
My next attempt was contacting Wismec direct. After a few messages back and fourth someone at the other end assured me that the 510 connector on the RX300 has been updated so it would not fall out easily. Forgive me for not taking them at their word with the language barrier and all…
So guys and girls, this is where I’m at running old & tired back-up mods wondering what to buy next with no viable options and wondering is the old wismec 510 connector issue has truly been addressed. Any current knowledge would be appreciated. Thank you.
