    yellow wire needs to be connected to centre pin the board should just push back in it's loose because it looks like it is sprung for the negative connection to the top cap shouldn't be a big job
    is that a Vamo the wire looks really thin connecting no wonder its low Amp limit

    Without seeing the mod in its full glory, I cannot see how this can be soldered on! Can you take a photo of the cap at a 90 degree angle, so we can see it from the side. The reason why I say this, is the spring on the top of the LED board will press against the cap, and will put the solder joint under resistance. Also I am stabbing at stars here, but the wire looks like it is an earth wire, that just has to be connected/soldered to the cap.

    The solution, dependant on the side of the cap, might be to drill 2 small holes and put 2 small grub/tapping screws through the body and cap.

    No it's not a vamo, just a copy lavatube called vv350 . It can be fixed then? That's good news :-)

    Personally, I'd try giving Garry Dibley a shout and see if he fancys having a go. He's a whiz with a soldering iron and got a lot of experience with this sort of thing.

    Lol....yeah sounds like a good idea. As long as I don't break my vamo as well, should be ok until I can find someone to fix it.
