My Aqua V2 does not wobble in fact it is a perfect piece of machining to only $25.

Aqua V1 also has the wobble which bothered peeps to lengthy discussions. It stands straight and non-issue for me as I have no need to tank wobble check while vaping. On the other hand, wobble switches drive me nutz but I can't avoid touching them while vaping; no lengthy discussions.

Mine didn't wobble that bad out of the tin. But I switched the original oring to a thicker one and it's super solid now. Just a great atomizer.

Mine is also solid, I have two Taifuns bought together, one has a wobble on the chimney and the other does not, the groove cut into the chimney base on one is marginally bigger. Just a slight difference in machining can cause a big wobble.

If those are OEM they should not be wobbling should they? maybe they are 2nd grade quality units.

I don't think it's a loose machining/2nd quality thing. It's more of the oring used was a size to small thing.

O-rings are a big deal! Red ones mean that something is cursed, don't you know?
KF4 Leaking? For a more secure seal, replace the o-ring #16 with one that is 1.5mm cross section. SKU 1536606 or SKU 1536607

See my woes, in the breakdown thread: I do believe that at least some of them are QC rejects. Mine wobbles too. :-(

As I stated before, this wobble is there on the real deal authentic too. Its just the oring.

I've put a tight fitting small diameter (watch back) o-ring under the original one and it has improved. Other o-rings that I have lying around were either very similar or too big/small. It may also help some leaking from that region - time will tell.

Don't dare put this thing in your pocket with the airflow even slightly opened. Just a slight amount of pressure and it will leak like a sieve.
