[Repair] rDNA 40 USB charge port
Apologies if this is posted in the wrong section, not been on here for a while...

Am looking for someone who could fit a new USB charge port to a Vaporshark rDNA 40 please. I would also need the parts.

Can arrange shipping/collection via DPD to any UK mainland address or if you are in the East Midlands/Northants/Bedfordshire area I can drop off/collect.

Thanks in advance for anyone that can help or refer me to someone who can.

There (was/is) a user on the aaec forum by the username of windows who (did/does) that sort of thing.

Or you could hunt around for one of the rather good, discontinued clones, I picked one up for about £12 a while ago, though rules prevent me from saying where.

Vaping is just another habit

Thanks for the info, I guess these are no longer popular due to cheaper devices that are 'good enough' for many users.

I'd rather not bin this thing, its perfectly fine when manually charging the 18650's its just nice to have the USB port if a charger is not available.....will take a look at that other forum though

Thanks for posting, I still need it doing but unsure where to locate the part.

Let me speak to Vaporshark to see if they would sell me one, in which case I might take you up Smiling

Alternatively, if you don't have one you could get a cheap QI charger from Amazon and charge it wirelessly.

No worries. The QI receiver is under that weird shaped panel on the side with the USB socket. Obviously it won't charge quickly, probably at 0.5 amps, and will feel warm but that's normal.
