    Wondering if there is any demand for repair. My Thai brother-in-law is a cellphone technician whom naturally got into the business of ecig repairs through friends. Please let me know if you guys are interested and I'll post details on how it's done.

    Would he be able to change a dead DNA40 chip? I've got the new chip but haven't done any serious soldering since high school (which is a looooong time ago).

    Yes that's no problem for him. If you're nearby Lopburi you can stop by the shop at the Robinson here, otherwise you'll have to mail your setup to the shop. I'll check price for you and get back.

    It's a shame you threw them out. For now his specialty is just cell phones and ecigs.

    We'll double check to make sure it is your chip and not something else. If it is the chip then 500 baht + 50ems to return it back to you. Transfer after job is complete. Apparently shops in bkk do it for 900 due to the liability of the chip.

    Pretty sure it's the chip...screen output is scrambled. Will PM you at the weekend about sending it off as I'm nowhere near Lopburi.

    I won an Ijoy Maxo Quad from HG. After a couple of months it displayed random error messages every time I stuck an atty on. Now settled on "no atomizer". Happy if it could be fixed, if not, I'm no worse off. I'll send a PM.

    I have a skystorm AM30. The charger connector (same as a smartphone connector) has broken off and I can no longer charge my Vapour battery. How can I send this item to you for repair?

    I have a skystorm AM30. The charger connector inside the unit has broken off. I need to get it repaired, only 6 months old. What do I need to do for you to repair it?

    @Prp905 and his brother-in-law could be onto something here. Absolutely first class service and communication. When I sent my Maxo Quod I obviously said I would pay for the time if it could not be fixed. This was declined. Got a PM today with photos showing one of the FOUR tightly packed circuit boards has melted. No wonder the price has dropped from 89 to 30 USD since I won it.
    Very highly recommended to anyone with a favourite mod that's going on the blink.
