23mm base
Bloody thing is 22.5mm at the base and as such will not fit my mod as it needs a 22mm max rta as it sits inside

I noticed that too, but figured the genuine was too?

Anyone else have the other versions and do they flare out at the base too?

I just had someone measure the genuine and its like that too, it flares too.
Dont know why Svoemesto would do that, but Im sure if its a big enough complaint they will change it or soon offer a base that IS 22mm without the flare.

I found that the Hussar Proj X and the Hurricanes are also wider than 22mm and not quite 23mm which does cause problems with those that use beauty rings or have OCD about the atomizer being flush to their 22 mm tube mods.

I have plenty of 23mm and 22.6 tube mechs so no problems.

The mini mech it was bought for is the "le petit gros " where the atty sits inside and it wont take anything larger than 22mm

Yet both the authentic and clones are marketed as 22mm

I love the look of those beautiful tubes with the sort of "cup" top , where the atty sits below for a great sleek look, but if you have an RTA with the air on the base or slightly above the cup cuts the airflow a lot.

I have a LOT of old favorite atties that limit my choices, and I do actually have a couple real oldies that that the air come in thru the 510 connection, but again not too much of a problem as I do have some old tubes with the top cap designed for air to come in thru slots , holes etc on the top caps.

I have a lot of old vape gear I love too much to move on

I have the authentic, the Ulton clone and the Marstech clone. All three measure 22.00mm exactly.

Marstech clone? do they have that one here? I have the SXK one, it performs so great.

Darn, just ordered a second SXK on the 4th ( used the coupon ) Wish I had known there was a version that was exactly 22mm

I have measured the authentic a few times and it always measures at exactly 22.0mm. The Marstech clone doesn't appear to be listed for sale here. It comes in the exact same two packaging boxes as the authentic.
