juicyjap,
fyi...
The peek insulator is for the pos pin in the rda section vs the original delrin ones that were in the v1 rda.
Kangertech is offering to send v1 owners peek insulators to replace the melting originals. They're not talking about the silicone pin insulator grommet in the stock heads.

The silicone insulators are in the RBA. AND ARE NOT Delrin.
The Peak replacement are being sent out to people that contact them with AUTH. code on the 25MM SUBTANKS. The vendors that I talked to that had the 1st release MINI Subtanks said they sent them back and were waiting for the Peak versions.

It is a FACT that mankind hates changes. Food for thought!

ok yeah i wasnt sure if the nasty tasting monkey butt flavored (as Phil Busardo called them) insulators were delrin or whetever, but yeah you know whats up.

Kanger has offered to replace them with the new peek insulators for anyone who has the old bad ones, and is supposed to be using only peek in all the new subtanks. Of course, there will be some kind of hoop for folks to jump through in order to get the replacements.

So is it carved in stone that the new mini will all be made with the peek insulators, or did they produce some with the 'other material' before the decision to move to using peek ?

That would be the real question. One would assume the new mini's are all made using the new peek insulators, but everyone knows the old saying about ass-u-me arrrgh

So this means this tank doesn't have the insulator that tastes like "monkey ass"?

It is peek in the pictures. You can tell from the last pic. The insulator is not white, while the coil head is.

There is no picture of the inside of the rda piece maussie95.

they are talking about the old white insulator and the new clear insulator on the rba deck

when thay are saying (RBA head are transparent, please kindly double check it before place order.)

they mean the insulator (check the insulator on the head)

white insulator = old
clear insulator = new
also there is a light brown type that i did not know of
but do now, and this is it here...

its easy to see what they mean...

if you zoom the last pic you can see its brown..
compare the white on the coil to the insulator on the rba

(brown here) looks like gray
that is part is light brown insulator more inside too under the build deck
where coil will screw into....

That's not the part that's wrong Mig, it's what was a silicone positive post insulator on the deck. That's why it can't be seen and the point to these questions.
