Should i get a 510 heat sink for this? What would be the downside ?
Hi For my vamo when eventually the 510 threads got worn out and i got one of these to continue using it.



Now the IPV has a spring loaded 510 connector so i was wondering if there would be some downside of using this from the start to protect the original 510 threads.

If you really need a thread saver, try one with a softer metal than the threads you want to save. Aluminum or copper might be more effective for that purpose.

They're also better conductors than the SS version and, if kept properly clean, should not affect your resistance readings.

Why?

The Vamo had soft threads that would wear out (hence the adaptations and replacement heads).

The Ipv4 has SS threads and is spring loaded. The 510 heat sink would take away from the positive factors.

Ya careful using fasttechs clones on ipvs stainless threads...these look identical to ipv3s 510 wit that little piece of cardboard my ipv3 threads on the very bottom started stripping when switching between tanks and fasttechs rdas Doge v2 royal hunter...I ended up having to replace wit a fatdaddy 510 which has much tighter tolarences.

I have 4 IPV's and never had one problem with any of the threads. SS is always the way to go!

hebum I would not mess with the IPV 510 they are great the way they are set up.
As far as the Vamo............ If you need tougher threads for it I would definitely get the SS heat sink.
It does not make sense to put soft threads on it and have problems again. The center pin is a copper contact, ans the threads are SS. I had one on one of mine a while back, until I got the replacement top.
Easy to do and was only about $6.00. I have the SS heat sink on another 18650 mod that had soft copper threads. It works great.

Well maybe u don't swap atties as often as I do but I do at least 6 swaps a day and that wore my SS ipv3 threads down to where the spring was too strong and it would pop my tank or rda back out of the threads....:-\ went to fatdaddy 510

For me i agree with CoolMeval. I vape mostly on the go and always remove the atomizer from the mod when i keep it in the pocket.. so that's more like around 10 times a day. If i get a copper heat sink, it'll be soft enough to not harm the ss IPV 510. The copper threads will wear out fast using ss atomizers but getting a replacement copper heat sink is easy enough. And if for some reason it is interfering with my IPV performance then no harm done i'll just remove it ..
