Ordered this (over the cheaper B one) 'in the meantime' as it was stocked but official was not, it's not really usable as the air holes in the cap don't line up with the ones in the deck. Gonna put in a ticket, but figured I'd post as a warning in case anyone is on the edge of ordering one.

See, "Styled" in this case means "Second". Yeah, as in "Reject for Sale", (cheap).

Yeah, Flo, so do I but.....I invested in the authentic and bought the "Styled/Reject" to fill out an order. It'll be fun to see how it matches up.

I wasn't expecting it to be nearly as good as the authentic, but did at least believe they wouldn't bother to waste materials or list/sell/ship something on here that is this far out of spec. I mean, it's pretty solid and if it had at least lined up I think it would have worked fine... for all I know it was just luck of the draw and I got one of a small number that are buggered up.

You might be on to something there vape8ion, maybe someone got their hands on some rejects or selected parts of rejects being sent for scrap. Now I wonder... which part is actually off, the cap or the deck. Going to order an authentic from a little closer to home, only about $4 more than FT and none of the random import custom-y-ness delays.

BTW: saw it mentioned in one of the other threads, there is a small gap between the insulator and the positive post, but putting the top cap on closes that gap up. Doesn't help much if the air holes don't line up though.

I think I see it, the air holes on the deck aren't angled downwards on this one.

I just received the cheaper version (B) or SRC:9651188

Holes line up fine. Cap is a bit loose on the base but with juice might tighten up or I just change the o-rings and the deck is just absolutely tiny, but will persevere to see how it vapes.

Tommy1977 there are a few people who've received the black one and it's ok, so seems likely it's a limited issue.

Damn, that's a big gap. I have one of these (silver, non-B) on the way, fingers crossed.
