insulator is hard plastic not silicone
this is not the positive post insulator from an igo-l judging by pictures..real igo-l's have a silicone insulator and this one has the hard plastic one from the chimbus (V5)..youde igo-l's always have the silicone insulator.. (have 5 of them)

How do you know its not silicone its hard to judge by the photos ? If its not its still an easy fix and at this price its a good deal silicone or not.

going by the pictures it's really easy to see..the youde igo-l has a T shaped insulator that protrudes past the centre post hole..while the one in the pictures is a rounded one that leaves part of the centre post hole visible..

it might be an easy fix and might not..the plastic one on my V5 is pretty much glued to the centre post and hole..

it's worth pointing the difference out for people wondering if this is genuine or not..there's no way a youde igo-l would have this insulator..

Worst case just take a drill to the hard plastic to remove it

Then insert what?

And, since it's so low and inside that post hole, why does it matter what it's made of anyway? It's never going to be near heat since it's so low in there, it's not like it's a SM20 FAT protruding rubbery insulator ACK!

yeah..i'm still buying a couple as I have the replacement silicone insulators from my other igo-l's..hopefully the body is as good as a genuine igo-l..

nonegiven..if you don't have any of the other ones from the igo-l replacement pack then just leave it..the insulator on this igo-l is a major difference from a genuine igo-l though which is why I pointed it out..

nonegiven..it matters to me as I torch the hell out of these things..the plastic doesn't hold up as well at the silicone..it sees a lot of heat from me..

I probably have one in a bag somewhere from IGO, not sure if mine came with one in the bag or not? I got mine from monkeyman when they first came out, maybe mine's a clone haha! Mine has a tiny down in the hole clear-ish silicon insulator though, so I think it's from Youde

I do know what you mean about the differences though, I just didn't see it mattering in vaping reality (Aside from it not being youde I mean). It's obviously not theirs anyway as they don't "Gift Box" anything like that

yeah my main point was this is a difference from a regular igo-l..these should work just fine but it was worth pointing out that difference to anyone wondering if this was genuine..with the prices being so close to a genuine igo-l it wouldn't be out of the question to assume it was genuine and FT just threw a gift box in with it lol
