I'm hoping I can use the iStick Bending Adapter, as a permanent solution. Anyone else had their threads go and fix it?

Interesting with the duct tape. I had used a piece of kanthal as a temp solution but it wore down my threads a bit more even.
I suddenly had problems with the threading on my istick, after 4 months usage. Got that bending adapter during the week, and it's now working perfectly.

Mine is acting up as well, plumbers tape not working well and I find the card board trick works best to secure in a beauty ring and the swap out the tank when needed. Was going to pick up a bending adapotor but does that need to screw in as well or click in??? If its screw in it probally wont work..

It needs to screw in, so didnt work for me. Once your threads are gone, they're gone.

Previous poster just confirmed my suspicions,
Obviously nothing can be done with eleaf once threads are gone

Needed a new battery, got the bridge thing this time
FIngers crossed

Anyone ever drop the original istick in water? I dropped it in a hot tub a few months ago and it's been dead ever since. Just wondering if there's anything I can do. Probably not.

Would sugru work?
The end would be permanently attached though and would involve a lot of upside down screwing (dirty I know)

I was thinking that you could in theory solder the supplied adapter into the iStick threaded socket leaving an admittedly ugly (for recessed devices) but permanent connection.
Otherwise its a bigger job but total replacement of the 510 with a fat daddy low profile 510 could work, but for you'd want to be a competent solderer and be able to use some toher basic tools (threading tap).
