    What is the size of the o-ring that can fit the Mako?

    Some have recommended to unscrew either the atomizer or the adapter slightly so it would not accidentally fire the atty when fitting the atomizer cap. In my experience, the atomizer wiggles when doing this.

    I have found a better alternative, which is to unscrew the atomizer endcap slightly. You will see a tiny gap, maybe a half-millimeter, between the o-ring and the sleeve. This would suffice for now until I find a thicker o-ring.

    Hi Sprakkattak - :)

    The current o-ring size is 1.5mm thick, 15.5 I/D 18.5 O/D.

    We should be getting some thicker ones, but I just need to check first which would be the best to get all round.

    I think probably some that are between 2-3mm thick would do.

    Which batteries are you using and what is the distance that you are having to unscrew the adapter?

    Hi Tim, Here's a quick one. Its 2mm between the atomizer cap and the sleeve and 1.5mm between the bottom cap and sleeve. The gap is about 1mm when pressing the bottom cap to fire up the atty. I have tested this using 901 atomizer, mako maksi and with the supplied 5v battery. So I would need 2mm and 1.5mm o-rings with this setup.

    Will send a few more later with other combinations such as the minno and 510 atty.

    In which case, if you got a pair of o-rings each 2mm thick, you would be fine and have .5mm gap for the button which would be pretty good.

    So you want 2 o-rings, 2mm thick, 15mm I/D, 19mm O/D. ;)

    We should be getting a selection of different thickness o-rings next week probably 1.5mm, 2mm, 2.5mm.

    Hi Sprakkattak,

    Please send me an email: admin@smokejuice.co.uk and as soon as we get some of the 2mm o-rings in I'll send you some. :)

    Liberty Flights 901 Atty (SLB)
    Mako Maksi / supplied 5v battery


    2.0mm - between atomizer cap and sleeve
    1.5mm - between button cap and sleeve
    1.0mm - gap when button is depressed


    Liberty Flights 901 Atty (SLB)
    Mako Minno / supplied 3.7v battery


    2.0mm - between atomizer cap and sleeve
    1.5mm - between button cap and sleeve
    1.0mm - gap when button is depressed


    TECC Titan 510 Atty
    Mako Maksi / supplied 5v battery


    2.0mm - between atomizer cap and sleeve
    1.5mm - between button cap and sleeve
    1.0mm - gap when button is depressed


    Another TECC Titan 510 Atty*
    Mako Maksi / supplied 5v battery


    1.5mm - between atomizer cap and sleeve
    1.5mm - between button cap and sleeve
    1.25mm (approx.) - gap when button is depressed


    TECC Titan 510 Atty
    Mako Minno / supplied 3.7v battery


    2.0mm - between atomizer cap and sleeve
    1.5mm - between button cap and sleeve
    1.0mm - gap when button is depressed


    Another TECC Titan 510 Atty**
    Mako Minno / supplied 3.7v battery


    1.5mm - between atomizer cap and sleeve
    1.5mm - between button cap and sleeve
    between 1.25mm and 1.5mm - gap when button is depressed


    * seems fine with a pair of 1.5mm o-rings but has a very short throw on the button. it will not fire up the atty when locked.
    ** can use a pair of 1.5mm o-rings but has a very short throw and can still fire up the atty even when its locked.


    As you can see, my 2nd test (different combinations) yields almost the same results with my first one (901/maksi/5v), with the exception of 2 510 attys. My 2 510 attys were from the same supplier (TECC) but has different outcome. Please note that I used freshly charged batteries on this test and attys fitted were tight but not too tight.

    That's interesting Sprakkattak - thanks for taking the time to list these. :)

    You'll probably find that if you look at the connector pins on the two 510 atomisers that one connector may be recessed more than the other. This would occur from overtightening the atomiser or just naturally over time. This would affect the distances you note accordingly.

    sprakkattak I got mine in the local BandQ, in the err taps and pipes section heh. It was just a little plastic packet with about 10 o-rings in of all different sizes and thickness, all of them fit though. I cannot find what I bought on the website, but they should be easy to find instore.

    I've used a couple of the tiny hair braiding bands around mine, they work well until I get around to get another o ring. I guess a good old elastic band would work too.

    We have just added a few spares to the Mako page (springs, standard o-rings, 5V batteries, custom charger).

    We will also be getting some different sized o-rings in stock next week. These should be some larger ones to work with the protected CR2's on midi.... ;)

    We'll have the protected CR2's for the midi also in stock (mod shop) next week... :)
