Vamo Connection Area
Vamo V4/V2 Two Piece Top CapV2 & V4 These connection area's are arriving from the same manufactuer as the single part pieces from the first shipments. I think what the manufacturer is trying to acheivefor you is the ability easily clean your threading area and continue to enjoy the V2 LCD interface. Personally, I would consider them an upgrade to the single piece version, but it is entirely your personalpreference. If you have any issues, please let me know as soon aspossible.You can, of course, return them with full reimbursement for the purchase price. Please read V4/V2 help tab and also disclosure statement tab before purchasing. Please contact me for any details if I have missed any particulars. I will do my best to keep you apprised of any news...
News! As of this morning (6/26/2014), a customer pointed out that the "Stainless Steel" Connection Area threading is in fact brass with plating. A disappointment and I was quite upset, but there is absolutely nothing I can do about it except clearly state the material type within the product area's. When I communicated with the manufacturer this morning, she tells that she too had been misinformed. She said that all Vamo threading is standard brass with plated finish, but the body of the Vamo stainless (brushed) steel is stainless steel. The material type is now clearly stated within the product area's. If anyone has any questions or issues with their "brushed steel" connection area purchase, please contact me either by phone or email.
The micrometer measures at the area adjacent to the lip where the connection head rests on the Vamo body. Please note the millimeter measure of the area attaching to the inside of your body area is 20.05 mm (view image below); when tighting the micrometer wheel as much force as possible gives a 20.03 reading.
Vamo Measuring 20.05 mm diameter
As you can see from this image, the bottom tapers to the larger diameter. You will need to use strenght and care for a proper press fit. The tapered edge is used to insert the connection into the top area of your Vamo. It will take care, muscle, and it is highly likely you made need to use a soft mallot hammer to push it in the rest of the way to the lip of connection area.
A contact of mine has found in some instances epoxy has been used to secure some Vamo builds. This makes for difficult removal and the need to use an two part epoxy to again insure a secure fit.

Sometimes solder does not stick easily to the connection area ground screw. The easiest why I have found to circumvent this issue is by sanding the screw and applying a dab of solder flux.
Vamo Connection Area
Step by Step
Instruction

Removing the Connection Area Top Cap from your Vamo V2

Tools Needed: Bench Vice; Flat Head Screw Drive; Hammer; Protective Cloth

1) Make sure your Vamo is switched off
2) Remove the battery/batteries and set safely aside
3) Remove the Extension Tube
4) Wrap the primary body component with a protective cloth; Examples: Mechanics Cloth or Painters Cloth; or Wash Cloth
5) With the body wrapped safely wrapped for protection, secure the primary Vamo body in the Bench Vice with the face of the screen and buttons facing down. You want to provide maximum protection possible to these areas. Tighten the vice enough to prevent the primary Vamo body from moving.
6) Wedge the flat head screwdriver between the connection area and the primary body at an angle. You will use the hammer to tap the connection area away from the primary body. Work each side until you have reached a successful separation.

Separating the Parts

1) When the connection area and the Vamo body separate, you will see two insolated wires attached to each part. Do not remove the wires from the Vamo body side.

Focusing on the connection area, the Black wire is the ground wire and attaches to the outside terminal on the connection area. The White wire is positive wire attached to the center point of the connection area.

To disconnect the wires on the connection area side, you will need to heat each of those areas up with your heated soldering iron in order to separate them. The soldering iron will melt the solder. You will then be able to pull the old connection area gently away from the wires. Be so careful not to touch the hot end of the soldering iron. If you are unfamiliar with the soldering process, find someone to assist you.

After Separation

1) With the Vamo Primary Body part still in the vice, loosen the vice enough to adjust its position to be the most comfortable for you to engage the soldering iron as you solder the connection area wired back to the new connection area.
2) You can use Rosin Core Solder to solder the wires from the Vamo body to the new connection area. Heat your soldering iron to the desired temperature to melt the solder. Be careful not to touch the insulation around the wire with the soldering iron. Make you sure you solder is going to hold. Allow ample time for cooling.
a) Solder the black wire to the small screw ground connection area. The same location as previously attached on old connection area.
b) Solder the white wire to the location at the center of the connection area as previously attached on the old connection area

Reattaching the New Connection Area to the Vamo Primary Body Part

1) Set the Vamo upright, securely on a sturdy level surface with the Connection Area in position ready to push into the Vamo body.
2) Take a cloth, making sure it is thick enough to withstand the gentle but firm pounding of the hammer. Drape the cloth over the Connection Area and Vamo body. With one hand, hold the Vamo around its body and Connection area to the position lined up for insertion. The cloth will help to hold the position of the connection area to the Vamo body.
3) Gently, but firmly hammer around the outside edges. You may need to deliver a forceful hammer to the center, but only do that if it is necessary.

Voila!

Test for functionality. Your Vamo should work as if almost new again.
As always, if you need assist, please contact me. l am here for you.
Here are rudimentary steps that will help to assist you with the Vamo V5 & V3 Connection Area replacement process:
If you have a Vamo V3 or V5 you are replacing like connection area's:
1) Remove the Connection area from the Vamo Body. The is no easy feat, but the easiest way to do this is take an extension tube and attach it where the top ring would normally go. This will allow you to grip onto end providing leverage from the connection area end. Use both hands to grip each end of your Vamo body. What you will need to do is wiggle the (for lack of better words) crap out of it until it loosens enough to be separate from the Vamo body.
2)  Remove the Extension Tube from the Connection Area: I found it difficult also, but with the use of a pair of pliers and a cloth to protect the finish, I was able remove the Extension Area from the original Connection Area.
3) Remove the oldConnection Area: When the original connection area separates you will see the ground wire (black lead) and the positive lead (white wire) and where they are attached to the old connection area. You will need to separate both wires from the original Connection Area by applying your heated soldering iron to the original solder to complete the separation. Avoid the wire insulation. Do not melt the plastic around the wires.
4) Solder the now separated wires to the like terminals of the new Vamo Connection Area. Once you have soldered the wires to the new connection area, allow the solder to cool for enough time for the solder to hold.
5) It is a tight press fit to reconnect the top cap to the Vamo Body. I used a cloth to cover the top connection area with a rubber mallet to successful complete the replacement process..
Please contact me if you have any questions or need assist.
Remember you can set a time up with me so we can coordinate video chat through Skype.
Connection Area Information (updated 05/27/2014 to reflect to total of 6 reported issues since 8/23/2013)
There have been now three reports (in 5 months) of Vamo Connection Areas fitting loosely within the Vamo body. You are welcome to return your item for a refund. Please contact me immediatley if this should be the case with you. The measurement difference is less than a 1000's of an inch, it made it impossible to maintain a tight fit. Neither could tell me who the specific manufacturer is, though they sincerely made efforts to find out. Through this experience, credit going to Jon M. of Dundee, Oregon, reporting a successful solution for this issue should you need:
He used JB Weld.
He states that either one of these will do the job, however, he used the JB Kwikweld because it is faster:
Link: http://www.jbweld.com/product/j-b-kwikweld-pro/
Link: http://www.jbweld.com/product/j-b-weld/
Since JB Weld is a two-part epoxy and is not conductive his resolve for this issue of its non-conductive nature is to apply the mixture from 12:00 - 9:00 (looking at the clock as an example of the Vamo Connection Area circumference) leaving the area between 9:00 - 12:00 clean and clear of JB Weld. The space allows the conductivity that is required. "The vamo replacement head MUST make contact with the vamo body or it could overload the control board's ground."
Additionally, Joh explains and answers several great questions:
"It has come to are attention that some of the Vamo's on the market have a larger boar for the press on parts. Unfortunately, because no one company makes the Vamo, it's out of are control. How do I know if my Vamo is one of these? The truth is: You don't. Ther's no way to identify if you have the one with the larger bore or not."
"For the people worried about gluing the vamo together. I wondered if it would come apart after the JB weld. It does. It goes back together tight with no more JB weld needed."
"I don't have JB weld and I want to vape right now. Do you have any Kanthol wire left over from a coil build? Just hold a tiny amount of Kanthol in between the two connections and press it on. Make sure not to put so much Kanthol inside the body that might short it out."
