That looks a little bit on the risky side being so close.. The insulator might be a hard material, but even then...

It saddens me that they STILL DID NOT fixed the huge flaw of the V1 ,E.G that refill hole that goes thru the airflow chamber with a super tiny screw (which does not fill it obviously)
Leakage guaranteed

Otherwise i kinda like that rounded top cap,but i dont see huge improvements over the V1 except bigger cloudbro juice channels and slightly bigger airflow.
Bit expensive for a rounded topcap lol

THat's weird - I never noticed an issue with the bottom fill screw on my V1 base. I'm sure I will NOW though. Gee, thanks Fap. ;)

I have 3 of the V1 (diff manufacturers/models) and all have the same flaw,slight leakage because of this hole.
The only solution is to turn it into a top fil and put a stopper on the inside of the refill hole.
Mainly because of that i dont use em so much anymore...i prefer my orchids and i use the spares for frankensteining.

The V1 SP base replaced my Orchids in my rotation. LOL. I guess I do get very slight leaks right after filling - I just blow out the excess in the air channels. This latest build hasn't leaked a drop though. But nnow that you mention it, that fill hole IS pretty small, definitely needs a needle tip.

And now I wanna play with top filling on it. Awesome. :)
