Kayfun Lite bases and chimneys

Bases:
We'll start with talking about the Kayfun Lite base (Lite+ and/or Russian 91% fall in this category).

You will find that the Kayfun Lite bases on FT may have the airflow control on the bottom, on the side or none at all. I prefer the side AFC but the bottom is fine also and I have many of each:

No AFC:

You will also notice the fill port in the bottom of the base has 2 styles, 1 is recessed with an o-ring and one is more flat on the base. I prefer the recessed and this was an improvement in the authentic to help with leaking from the fill port:

These are just things to keep an eye out for as you purchase your bases as well as the ratings.

Chimneys:
There are basically 3 chimneys for the KF Lite. Full size, nano and barrel only. Each of these are used in various configurations as you will see in my Kayfun Lite Configurations blog entry:

Pretty slim pickings on the chimneys and I suggest getting them while these are still available and stocking up :)
