O-Ring Size
Does anyone know what size O-Rings to get to make these close tighter? I saved some 15/12/1.5mm OD/ID/thickness and some 14/11/1.5 OD/ID/thickness to my wishlist but would rather not buy both, any ideas?

Not sure as I do not own, nor buy new orings (yet).

To "beef" up orings, you can remove them and add a few wraps of dental floss in the oring grooves and then replace the oring.

I use that method alot to secure driptips, as it seams they are all "loose" and fall off in my pockets

I used two o-rings in each groove from the bottom of evod style coil heads to beef up an A6 which is really similar. It works well if you have some lying around.

Edit: They are SKU 1886601.

Use 0.8mm ribbon wire - it allows you to tune it more easily.

You do get that I am talking about the cover not the drip tips right? Also could I use premade coils on these? My hands hate fiddly stuff.

Premade coils are good, get the right ohms.
Drip tip, cover, it doesn't matter.
O rings which are a little small is OK (they stretch).
The important part is it's thickness, that's what tightens gaps.
Follow other's advice, increase the diameter of the grooves and OD of O ring will also increase.
The only thing cheaper than buying only one is buying none.

TY Bow_Hunter I will get the right ohms. I am trying to replace the original O-Rings so the covers will stay on them.

I understand the O.D. of your current o-rings is not large enough for a snug cover fit.
I don't own one of the atomizers in question, so I don't know the right measurements to tell you.
You should go up one size in diameter from what you have now, I.D. will be the same and O.D. will increase.
A faster way than buying is building up the groove, so that the o-ring is forced outward.
That should also tighten the grip on the cover.
1 remove o-ring
2 wrap something thin in to the groove
3 replace o-ring

I had the same problem with my dripper, the cover was loose. The A6 nearly has the same base and system.

If you can thread those posts then premade coils will work for you. I use the mandrel or screwdriver to keep the coil from deforming, but even if you mess it up it's still likely vapable. There isn't much to go wrong with these types of RDA.
