@ GHomer... Aye, they should fit inside the drip-shield.... given the description/ measurements are accurate. The shield is 11-12mm id, the adapter is (as listed) 9.1mm wide . I know several guys that have used them in the fashion above to extend a short carto so it reaches the end of the drip shield. Though I will admit that I have no idea weather these adapters are exactly the same dimensions as theirs.

ok....but anyways it would surely have a power loss going from one to the other like this....I would go with @Big_Black_Tools ' suggestion to keep more power in your vape :)

@ GHomer...Aye, I've googled several of them, similar to what Black had suggested, in the last half hour and I have yet to find one that will fit. Though you and he are right. The chances of shorts and power loss are definitely an issue with that number of connections. I'll probably just end up buying the ss tubing and the 2 510 connectors from a dyi vape supply (cant mention them by name here apparently) and solder up my own extensions then give it a once over with the Fluke.

mailletyme: Thanks for the explanation. I was thinking of the drip shield around the 510 connection. I removed the carto shield the day I bought my K100 and haven't thought of it since. Thanks again for taking the time.

Don't confuse yourself, just get this: 510 Finned Heat Sink

Thanks Dragon, but I actually found a 1pc extension/510 adapter that works great. Out of curiosity though, how would the 510 Finned Heat Sink take the place of a 510 extension ? The whole purpose here is to allow the use of an RDA/atomizer on the K100 WITH the drip-shield still in place...Hence the need for an extension that runs up thru the drip-shield....
