Thank you MichelArgouet - a brilliant diagram which has help me understand more.

I now know what is causing the misaligned posts but don't know how to cure it. I can push the positive tube up from the bottom so that it is level with the other post. However, when I turn the screw down to secure it the tube goes down also and part of the tube comes out the bottom. As you can see in the pictures:






I still have the second problem in that I cannot push the cap sleeve down but first things first.

I am sorry Michelarm but I don't understand teen text-speak and I am not sure what you are saying. This is all the base I have. What am I missing?

You see that piece inside the base? That's upside down and needs to be mounted to the underside of the deck like in the picture Michelarm posted.

If I'm ignoring you it's because you're fallacy impaired. Here's hoping you rectify your problem so that we might have a sensible conversation.

Also, you should have 2 white insulators. The big one goes in the bottom of the base and the small one goes between the two deck pieces. The two deck pieces are connected with the positive post.

Duh, thanks guys. I did have it that way around originally but tried it as you see in the pic to see if it was any better. It's all put back as it should be now and the positive post is still shorter on the deck and the cap sleeve is still fiendishly difficult to insert even after putting e-liquid on the o-ring. But insert it I did and pulled it up with some difficulty. I still don't feel like coiling and wicking it though and may put it away in a drawer and forget about it. I have another Taifun base and chimney with a bell cap that I ordered: SKU 2234303 and SKU 2154201 and I paired them together. It is much easier than this Hotcig one.

Thanks for all your help everyone.

i bought the same for a beginner, but found a OCC Adapter for Kanger OCC coils and works fine. Side effect, some times the occ coil stay on the inner tube, means he can fill it with 7ml lol, and is working. He showed me this phenomena. But works fine without leaking.

Thanks for the pic Qwixx!
I saved a copy, so next time I won't have to trial and error it.
I got mine assembled OK after disassembling and washing, but I remember having to think too much about it :)
