Super tight o-rings
So my SKX Hadaly arrived a few days ago. Blown away by the quality, and really impressed with the RDA in general. Only issue I've had is that the o-rings are super tight. And with a relatively small juice well (and the fact I don't like dripping straight through the drip tip) it makes removing and replacing the chamber a real pain. Most of the time it's not even on flush because I literally can't push it down any further. I swapped it with some spare o-rings I had and it's all good now. Anyone else have this problem?

You need to take up squonking. My Hadaly topcap only comes off when it's time to rewick

dab a little bit of e-liquid on the o-rings and a little bit on the underside of the top cap that sits on the o-rings. They should loosen up and slide a bit easier.

I'm waiting on mine in the mail, good to know that you find the SXK good quality

Moto: Yeah a squonk mod is definitely on my list of things to buy, just waiting for the money first :D

Darth: Yeah they were doused in juice and been vaping with it for a couple of days. It was so tight bits of the o-ring were actually breaking off. In the end I switched it with some spare Griffin o-rings I had lying about, good fit and no leaking. And yeah, you won't be disappointed, qualities great, even comes with engravings. Looks very professional.

The o-rings on mine aren't that tight, but the high sidewalls makes it so you have to put the top cap on at the right angle, it's quite unforgiving. Anyways, have you tried to remove the upper o-ring? That's what I did when I had a similar problem with one of my Narda's.

Mine is the same... the o-rings are a tight fit. But if you put some juice on them they work pretty damn well...

If the o rings are 1.5 mm thickness, switch to 1 mm.

yeah, no amount of lubing can fix all the ones I've encountered. I was cleaning bits of o ring trying to use cap. The o ring swap is a must unless ya squonk or drip through tip. SXK was off their o ring game which is usually really good.

Same here. Tight Orings on both Hadaly and O-atty.
