Milaana. Lana. LANA. LAANAAAAAAA
....just out of curiosity how had it been handled exactly?? I don't think I've ever seen one vent, not sure I would know what to look for, I have some old batteries now, usually I take pretty good care so I don't think there is much concern for me, though like I did get some water on one once?Now, I'm confused, because I thought there had been a minor issue with the top screw (the guitar pick & batt cover tightener) -- or more precisely, with the the post that the knurled nut tightens on to. Was there never an issue there? Or is that connected to the long screw that comes up from the bottom, as-in related issue to the thing that may require epoxy?
Not having taken one apart (no need, so far!) I mainly only know what I've read here. I've not had any need yet for any of Ryan's informative videos.
I mostly want a vape to just work and not have to become an expert on it's build and quirks.
I didn't bring up battery venting to implicate Milaana in the least. I mentioned better protection of the positive end when down. The positive end is where the sparks usually will fly if venting occurs, and while the battery chamber does only have one opening, I would still prefer to have my face farther from that positive end.
I have had a battery vent in a drawer, it was not a knockoff, but it had been mishandled and I did not see it; I should have been more careful with the handling. But it could as easily have vented in a device, through no fault of the device.
Yeah there were issues with that centerpost screw, because that is what carries the current basically from battery to heater, but it was quickly resolved but it was the cause of some delay for pre-order units to ship... (this is why the material of the screw will affect high output or low output, basically the high one is more efficient with power transfer and the low one is losing power in the transfer)
The screw at the top is called a hand screw, it is meant to be loosened and tightened back and forth over and over again to move the safety pick and battery hatch or keep them still... The post screw that it screws on top of goes inside the unit, probably visible if you unscrew the bottom panel screw, which must be a separate screw because they are not in line, but parallel to each other...
The epoxy is only holding the glass in place, there should never be any having anything to do with the screw? On previous Milaana, there was epoxy holding the wooden bottom cap to the vape, but on the Mi3 It instead has the smaller brass plate with that screw... I think you're just overthinking things, understandable, there's just too much info, but most of it is now moot!
