So all vandyvape products on fasttech are counterfeit?

    Wrong sizes I think, but I like the direction. ID, OD, CS appear to be the standard measurements. Seems an odd choice, as if you’ve got two the third derives. There’s likely some sort of reason.

    I measured CS and OD. 1mm CS is a standard and .5mm CS is a standard. .8mm doesn’t seem to be though. A 1mm o-ring that got stretched hard, maybe. Or they’re not made of silicone in the first place. Argh.

    They’ve had a day to relax. I’ll measure em again and see if it changes. Bottom on I doubt will move. Top one might though.

    Yeah, I knew the sizes weren't right but I figure those folks can get the right ones from wherever they order their orings. I don't have a measurement thingy (caliper or whatever it is called) but I have a zillion orings from various tanks so if you knew which other tank/rings are the same size, I could probably find a few for you.

    Gee, I am so techy talking (measurement thingy).

    JSYK: .8mm is 1/32"

    So if you want, you could poke around places like this...

    The O-Ring Store, We make getting O-Rings easy!

    ... and look for a suitable O-Ring.

    Of course, you would Probably want to get a Size Bigger and a Size Smaller to make sure that you get Something that works.

    So that makes getting something like this...

    $5.41 Rubber O-Ring Seals for E-Cigarettes (300 Pieces) 300-pack - ships 30 of each type at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    ... seem like a Possibility. Because even it you Can't get one of the O-Rings to work, you now have a Nifty Drip Tip organizer. So it Isn't a complete loss.

    But at what point do you just get one of these...

    $8.92 Berserker MTL Styled RDA Rebuildable Dripping Atomizer - 304 stainless steel / 18mm diameter / w/ BF pin at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping

    ... and call an End to the Quest?

    If you have had trouble with Vandy Vape o-rings in the past, then perhaps an alternative source, such as the O-Ring store that @zoiDman mentioned could be beneficial. Although I have never used them, I am willing to bet there is a much improved quality.

    according to some folks on ft
    so then this should have them in it
    sorry but this is all I have been able to find, seems vandy vape is keeping a tight lip on the sizes of the orings and no one's posted them in forums that I can seem to find

    For the berserker RTAs, yes, but the atty in question is the berserker RDA which is smaller in diameter.

    I've got an authentic and a few clones (and a couple more on the way) -- I'll check when I get back home later, but I'm sure I have a few of the spare parts baggies. I can probably put the some orings in the mail on the weekend if you want.
