    1st mech, please be gentle with me! ok I've screwed on the attie, screwed the mods pin up to it, attached the tubes, put in a battery, screwed on the base. It's not anywhere near connecting with the battery. I took the small tube out first, which I believe is for a kick. I've unscrewed the connection in the base to the point that's it nearly out completely, yet still nowhere near connecting with the 18650. Please help folks, I wanna get this running before bed!

    There is another ring attached to the tube, its very small, approx 2-3mm, its for a safety fuse. I think its attached to your top cap in the photo. Take it off and you will have connection.

    Pulled my hair out when i got my first one and gave the forum members loads of laughs!

    Your switch assembly looks very long. Do you have a threaded, knurled screw in there you can tighten. You shouldn't be able to see that spring matey.

    I don't have my Nemesis with me at the moment, but IIRC, there is another ring connected to the top cap that needs to be removed to fit a 18650 battery.

    So, you should have:

    atty > airhole ring > top cap > top half tube > base tube

    The ring that needs to be removed is abut 5mm

    This is all from memory, but I remember struggling with it until I found the small ring (no idea what its for - certainly not the kick ring, which you have already identified

    So you don't feel bad here's an extract from a message I sent Rob stealthvape on Saturday when I got my V1 clone.

    "I'm going to admit something. I got the v2 set up no bother, the ceramic drip tip is amazing and the switch is a dream. The v1 though. Ve just spent an hour trying to get it to work, I couldn't get it to fire in 18350, 18500 or 18650. I'd swapped the spring for the magnets, I thought I'd done something wrong there, but no. I compared each piece to a cheap FT nemmy clone I had and still I couldn't get it to fire.

    So I was about to email you saying I think it's faulty when I thought I'll just watch the Todd review of it again and see him take it to bits I must be doing something wrong. And then he says, I'll just take the kick out.. I don't use a kick.

    The threading is so good the kick ring was invisible. Of course it's all fine. I'm just a dick.

    Thanks for the great product and great service."

    That's coz he has loosened the base cap/pin to the point its almost separate - I struggled with this when I got my first nemy and did exactly the same thing

    It's at the top of the tube with the storm trooper on. Give it a twist opposite switch end. There's a very small 'tube' there.

    Yes, the one that's still connect to the base cap (i.e. NOT the one with the 2 small holes - you still need that)
