What do you think about this video?

Sofyan Hadi: Ooh Jan, you are so awesome! my ego c-twist still work but if someday it's broken (hopefully not) I'll follow your tips :), just bookmarked your link and subscribed! Thank you for your kindness and have a nice day, very glad to know you here ;)

John Kane: Awesome job on the button. When I saw you Superglue those two pieces to make it i wasn't quite sure, but you obviously knew what you were doing. Very nice creative fix.

Michael Howard: hello Steeljan, I have a question. I love to vid and it helped out a whole lot. The problem I have is that when i dissasembled my ego, I basically used a little to much force and disconnected my 2 leads from the variable dial. Is there a way to remove the variable dial without breaking it so I can resolder? 

jungjustice: awww your so cool. and your lil laugh at the end just cracked me up..... i just subscribed to your channel! i wanna learn more to be a better diy'er (not just vaping but general electronics and repairing of STUFF). got any suggestions for resources, books, sites, or places to learn with? so far when i fix stuff its about 85% luck the rest because knowledge and i'd like to improve those numbers. thanks glad i found ya here on the interweeebs. 

Tom Gundry: Hi Jan, I'm trying to design my own vv e-cig at the moment, for a fun design project. I was wondering if have have managed to identify which boost chips are being used to increase the voltage in some of the vv e-cig's you have looked inside? Thanks for all your great posts. Cheers, Tom

Andy B: I like the poster :D. And the video of course :).

bb65346: this is very cool. I would love to see the insides of one of these. Very cool video!!

Michael Howard: Its actually stuck in the 4.8 range, which is good but i still would like to have the choice of vapor strength

Alex Cortez: I had actually accidentally washed my eGo ctwist. And didn't work at the few day but I had left it alone. Came back a month later and it worked O.O

Nick Kendall: Hiya Jan.... Having one if those depressed days n watching ur vids are grate electronic design and repair and the such arnt new ti me but I still really enjoyed watching this I like to know what everything looks like inside so eventually one day I'll come across someone with a problem n be like Oo Oo iv seen that before! I totally love u ur a grate woman and super intelligent I have great respect for u I so wish I lived in the US because I'd love to meet you maybe do some building together I'd have a grate time I'm very passionate about vaping but building is my first love! anyway just wanted you to know how grate I think u are....

elucidative: "@#%&&^**&^%%!!!! @%$$32&^$#@(*&!!!!" I just dropped my twist and the stupid thing won't light when I fit it together! @#$%^%$#*&^!!

Michael Howard: by the way, I have the ego ctwist 1100

Paweł Biliński: Unfortunately, I took apart my Vision Spinner II and broke wires of Voltage Control PCB. There are about 5 wiring posts and only 2 wires going out of battery to this PCB. Do you know how should I solder them?

ben alexander: Silver fox vape life i like it 

ILRegal GSX: I about feel out of my chair when I bumbled upon your vid and with all due respect couldn't help but notice your an older person such as myself. And I thought I was alone, not so and so darn happy to see such a beautiful women who is so smart and definitely has steadier hands than I. Say I'm single by the way, just thought I'd throw that in, heck never know. Could really use a good brain around here, well not that I'm stupid but sometimes a double check helps.. Thanks for the vid you are awesome

derrick robertson: mine has a blue wire, red and 2 blacks, prolly bootleg. i'd heard that was a problem.

Vaper Holster: It's amazing how small the pcb's are, nice video keep up the good work

Peter d: S U P E R good work!!! Thank you for the video and this cool trick :-x

Angel Gil: how nice video you have done..

Erick Wilczynski: I have a question about the wires attached to the metal at the top. I have a couple of spinners that I need reattach the wires to the top and it looks like one at the very top was glued in. Do you know how to fix this? Maybe we can pm and I can send you some photos of my problems. Also I have a ego-c knock off that I bought and it worked fine for one charge cycle but now it doesn't charge. I was hoping you may have some thoughts on that as well. Cheers!

MetalicB0x: wow! so cool, keep up the great work.

Mark Bartlett: Great videos. The e-cigarette phenomenon is all new to me, so I'm just starting out, but electronics are not, thankfully. I have just had the short wire running from the center (+) feed from the 510 terminal - to the PCB break. Now need to strip / tin / solder the wire to the board. The wire broke from the common place, just above the surface of the component (top) side. I'm going to opt for the lazy solder. Instead of desoldering the broken wire and re-opening the PCB hole, I'm just going to reflow with more solder that has high flux content. :O

Jeremiah Hasselbusch: Very Helpfull Thanks (^_^)

Kewl Beans: ur pretty smart so far i've not seen somebody do a tear down on a ego and explain how the circuit stuff works :D

malman1080: Excuse me for the unrelated question, but have you considered building a dna20/dna30 mod? 

ILRegal GSX: Ya their you are again, saw your message about marriage being hyped up and being freinds is better couldn't agree with you more my friend, yes having Vision Spinner problems, stupid thing arrives fully charged and works great until I have to recharge it and it will only charge for about 40 minutes on a 1300mAh and as you know it should take about 4 hours. This is my second go around through two different vendors and same problem, except 1st vendor was reputable and now this second vendor is not so I'm stuck with two 1300's that won't fully charge, might as well got 650 mah bats. Hadn't occurred to me until know and seeing you are really darn talented with these things would you happen to know anything about this charging issue with these Visions? Please don't suggest pin push, I don't think you would but someone at the shop where I got these batteries tried to tell me that's what I did to the battery and it's customer abuse, LOL, so no refund, I guess he didn't hear the rest of what I said, it charges for about 40 minutes, OK now lets talk about pin push?? Just scanning around for a solution and saw your smiley face and ah ha I thought maybe SteelJan will know?????????????

Interestedsomewhat: I just dropped a brand new Vision twist on the twist end and now it won't work/light up/function at all. Do you think it's toast?

Matthew Wolberg: Neesh...ok got it...potentiometer has a stop...silver diod. Its zero'd on both dial and meter...now to align it!

brocksdaddy081910: How hard do you think it would be to remove all of the internal componants and change the form factor by reassembling the pieces in a different case potentiometer and all ?

James Bond: Hey, great work. I'm considering doing a modification to the Clearomiser (This is the top part to the spinner) With me using your tutorial it doesn't seem like it should be a problem. I'm wanting to apply some Micro L.E.D's into the Clearomiser. I've worked out the potentiometer isn't greatly out of sink with the dials so it's simple maths for resistance but I'm having a problem doing the simple thing of getting the top of the spinner case open like you have. I don't want to damage it so I'm not going at it with pliers. Could you give me a heads up on what you did to open it. Thanks for you're time. James.

godgivesbelovedoak: Omg your sexy. I love a smart woman. I don't care your twice my age. Will u merry me?

Sarmamusakagulash: Really good job SteelJan, pure skills! :D My wire from this part also plucked off...and I got EGO model with display with puff counter, so it was real pain in the ass to fix this... It's practically impossible to put back original rubber from this part so I've made new one from an old CE5 clearomizer vent rubber. Also if you're going to rebuild this you should cut down red wire for about 4-5mm, because once you pull it out it is very hard to fit it in the case again... Also be careful with soldering these parts, it has to be perfect and fit right! Battery button part is also tricky, press it down on the board while putting back in case... Good luck! :) Greets from Serbia

Matthew Wolberg: Wonderful vidéo SteelJan!...im à hobbyist myself with à question...à vision spinner i was attempting to open resulted in pulling out the entire battery with the potentionomer (sp?). I see where it sets however im not sure if i need to calibrate the dial or if the marks on the bottom can help déterminé à setting? Would you have any advice? Thank you!

Kc Lanuza: I have an ego-c twist and it blinks around 12 times.. i recharged it and it still does the same. Does it mean its broken? D:

Fernando Lara: amazing video thank you. but i have one question my problem seems to be both the positive and negative wires being unsoldered the longer red one is still attached up top but theres also a yellow wire that i can't seem to find where to solder to. any help?? :( 

Tytanium: Impressive , great video and repair :) .. I am currently attempting to fix an old ego battery that I have from an ego-t that I had a couple of years ago that is going to require a fair bit of soldering as every wire came free when it separated in my pocket. I would like to use it as a back up but the only problem is that one of the tabs on the lithium battery broke and I would like to just solder a wire where the tab was but solder does not seem to stick even with flux even tho it is a metal contact . Would you have any tips ?. I think it would be easier for me if I could get the whole battery out of the tube but it has the usb passthrough on the bottom and I am only able to take the 510 connector side off and cannot get the lithium battery to move at all in the tube.. Hopefully I have made sense with what I am describing . I have a twist and I love it and I know that I could just buy another battery but I love repairing things when they stop functioning . PS .. I know the battery itself is still fine it is just the connections that need to be made. Thanks, -Ty

Wayne Punter: Brilliant quality video and great walk through. Many thanks for a really useful video :-)

Ben Figueroa: I need to have mine repaired I'll pay

Learn the Technology of your Hobbies: Yes Ma'am I need your help. I just bought a Kanger Tech 1300 mah, with my Kanger Areo Tank -adjustable air flow. I dropped the entire system, and now it is dead. When I put battery on the charger the button lights up but if disconnected I get nothing. Please tell me what is the easiest way to take the head apart,and see what wire broke loose. **Also what Amps is good for soldering & what gauge ** Please respond. I have 4 broken batteries, & no direction! * PLEASE!!

Chris McKenna: Great Job!

kelvin Tejeda: can you help me with my ego twist?

geoff weissenberger: Steeljan, I have an vision spinner 1300 and was wondering if you had or can make a tutorial on how to re-soldering the wires inside the cartridge? Noting where each line goes etc... An over head view would be great!! I have looked online (everywhere) for a tutorial or a "guide book," to do so and have come up short. NO ONE on yt has one... wanna be the 1st? 

recifemedia: Wow, Im a German, and I see a Women, with great Talent for makes a good Job! 

top40productions: This is the second or third video I've seen of yours, you are incredibly patient and talented, I've been repairing and wiring since I was a kid, I know how difficult these micro boards and close tolerances are, fantastic job, you are my new YouTube hero :) 

overhilliffy: CHEAPER!!!Just bought one form here it was cheaper and its sick. its were i get mine http://www.ebay.com/itm/251364213489?var=&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 

Carlos Araujo: Your a pretty looking lady good job . Know can I do that job I don't know

Dave Smith: This is a great video on how to repair the switch on an eGo-C Twist.

EddieTreat: The homemade button looks better then the factory one if you ask me, I can't wait to buy one, break it, and fix it like you did. Great work.

Ron G: i had almost the same thing happen to me. the button fell apart, but the wires came lose. i re solder (sp) it all back up. button lit and worded 5 clicks on np but it would not fire the atomizer. any tips on why its not working?
