Battery Door
Very little to no Battery door tolerance, No magnets, no clip, nothing holding the door securely in place.

Out of the box brand new, is little to no tolerance holding the battery door closed, the door comes open very very very easily on its own.
Thus the the 2x batteries fall out dropping onto the ground.

Other than taping (adhesive) securing the battery door shut ..I have ordered an ArgusGT Silicone sleeve (sold elsewhere, not on FT yet) thus hopefully the sleeve will keep the door from working itself open... at the least stoping the batteries from dropping out onto the ground..

No such issues with either of mine. I can vigorously shake both of them without any batteries inside and they don't pop open. There are two small grooves/lips, one on each side that slide under and hold the door securely in place. The door tightens up once you put batteries inside.

Thats the problem, the two plastic grooves / ledges are very small, thus lack resistance.

Is the nemesis of the battery door design, those 2 little plastic ledges will wear down overtime, no doubt is planned obsolescence

Anyway received ArgusGT Silicone sleeve, which not only looks great, but has resolved this issue, stops the battery door from falling open

.VOOPOO should add the sleeve with the Argus GT mod.
An extra few dollars I would be willing pay - to save myself the hassle of batteries randomly falling out!


looks like eleaf have bitten the ArgusGT with a similar 'small plastic ledge' battery door design SKU 9738040

The silicone sleeves are very good for two bucks each.
