The base piece has a heavy magnet in it that the atomizer screws into and the mouthpiece connects to.
I wasn't getting a connection, just blinking lights, after cleaning and letting dry. I was going to try seating the magnet ring the other way, but now I cannot remove it. It's stuck. How can I take the base apart. It seems really foolish to fall out easy the correct way in and not be able to be removed if accidentally placed the wrong way. There is no 'this way faces out' on the magnet ring, but testing with some other things, I can totally FEEL the polarization. It's shorting cos the polarization is opposite what it should be, and it's REALLY hard to remove. How do you recommend doing so?
