Drip Tip Size
Ok, so the drip tip is just the mouth bit at the top, so why would it be listed as a standard 510 tip?

Ive hit a problem, Kanger subox mini tip is just plain, no air holes, and I think I would like to try one with air hole adjustments. Problem is this device isn't that old so not many parts on ebay etc

Ive measured the hole, and its 8.5mm or so, the tip has a single o ring.

So am I missing something with it being 510 compatible ?

RE: Drip Tip Size
At 8.5mm it's a 510 alright. I've no idea why it's referred to as 510, nor the connection. Always just took it as an industry standard term like ego or ce4.

RE: Drip Tip Size
They over use that 510 sometimes, I thought that was the battery thread. Well im finding 8.2 and all sorts now it is late and Im using a led torch to view the vernier Smile

So is 8.5 the "Standard size" or 8.2 as the o ring would close up the gap

RE: Drip Tip Size
F knows.. it's a 510, they're all much the same.. over analysing give me a headache. Lol

There are small variances.. bore size, number of o rings, length ect. Not much to worry over, if it's a 510 it'll fit Biggrin (usually)

Quote:All our drip tips are industry standard 510 fitment (8.5mm in diameter at the base of the drip tip)
so your right its based on a unit that set a standard, also used on ebay to disguise fakes
