DIY volume reducer for RSST + picture
I have made 3 chamber reducers for rsst form beer can, just like origami you just make the vertical surfaces and add an extra strip so it wants to spring out so it jams in the cap. You have to give them a quick wipe down or rinse between tanks and they only last a few weeks (vaping about 4 tanks a day).

If anyone wants to do it start with a 12 mm strip, cut out a bit to go over the negative screw about 2/3 along. With that over the screw shape a bend around the positive post. Now you should have a U shape around the post and wick, you then bend the ends back where they go over the edge of the deck (make a fold or crease, but not to sharp) to make a circle a bit larger than the deck with the ends overlapping. Cut 2 mm off the top edge from the bits that are not part of the "U" shape. Squeeze this up and put it into, trim the ends so they overlap about 8 mm, then slit each end half that one on top, the other on bottom so u can push the slits into each other with the ends inside the circle. Then cut another 10 mm strip to fit tightly inside the circle, with each end pushing against the fold where the "U" shape and circle meet to help it want to spring out and stay tight in the cap. You could prototype it with a sheet of paper first to make a template.

We know, but they cost £10 each in the UK, I have 2 RSSTs at the moment and they are not worth spending the extra on, that's more than the price than a Pulse G here!

haha, yes. They have in the purchase of two pulses G a more plus and can invest in fusions mods. :-)

2 Pulse G clones cost less then 2 Fusion Mod reducers + get dual wick option, much better positive terminal and hopefully no leaks.

Personally, I'm notoriously lazy. I just stuff water soaked cotton balls into my cap. Re-wet as necessary.
