    Not sure what you mean by split in half. They are split in half when they are new. That's how they are made.

    As DrillRX said they are designed with the split posts. That slot is what you put the wire into. IMO it's a great way to do it.

    Well, that sucks! I had a look at mine and I see what you mean - there are not a lot of threads left to 'interlock' after screwing them together. A thin washer between the mod and atty would fix that and now that I know about this I might just do that too for protection when I drop them. I suppose you could also contact FT and see if they will exchange them for you.

    Been using trident clone, it is the best of my other dripping atomizer that I finally bought an original one.

    Feel free to test yourself, when you leave a protank a bit loose for airflow it is wobbly. I'm not saying it will but it can damage the threads of either one, atty or mod. And I don't like my gear wobbly anyway.

    Not wobbly at all. You tighten up the telescope against it. It doesn't move at all. That's how I run mine all the time. Trust me. It doesn't move.

    Like I said before. THATS HOW I DO IT AND IT WORKS GREAT. JUST AS TIGHT AS WHEN ITS ALL THE WAY FLUSH WITH THE BODY. The battery pushes the center post up against the atty terminal.

    The Trident clone is a steal for 16$. I have two of them and both work flawlessly. The quality of the thread is a lottery but the original one cones with the same issue.

    and i proved myself wrong after making a statement that the launcher gave the astro a run for its money, what i failed to realize when i made that statement was that my astro was currently in 18500 mode when i glanced at them. hahaha. anyway, heres a side-by-side.

    Is that a muffler style drip tip on the trident?
