Replacement o-rings?
Hey,

I recently purchased this RDA (elsewhere). The o-rings are too big, and the top cap is tearing them up. Already tried lubricating them with VG, and replacing them with the spares. Neither worked, and I'm going to need replacements soon.
Does anyone know an SKU I could replace the originals with?



Thanks in advance.

PS: This RDA gives fantastic smooth airflow and the flavor is top-notch.

Measure the O-rings you want replaced and then look here:

Rubber: SKU 9670109
Silicone: SKU 9693649

Use the model dropdown menu to choose sizes and colors.

Thanks for the sku's, you are Awesome.

I tried measuring mine, but they are stretched out of shape from being placed on the atomizer. I removed one to see if it'll regain its original shape.

The exact diameter of the rings isn't of crucial importance.
Better look for the right thickness.

As the Paradox RDA is 24mm wide overall, top cap rings between 20mm and 22mm should fit. Even 19mm rings could work if you want a very tight fit.
The smaller the O-ring, the tighter the fit.

Don't forget to keep installed top cap O-rings lubricated.

Differences between rubber and silicone:
- Rubber is more firm but ages/dries faster.
- Silicone is more heat resistant, softer and more pliable, but tears easier.
