Good Afternoon (USA) and good morning (China)!!!,
I'm happy to now be a member here at the Aspire forum and have been fairly satisfied with my decision with making purchases with Aspire as my GO-TO Vaping systems.
With that out of the way and said lets get down to business!
I have now purchased two Triton 2 tanks, the Triton RTA system, the Pegasus MOD (V2 model), and many other items from Aspire directly. I have validated authenticity even though I purchased these items directly from this websites store and shipped directly with DHL.
I am not a novice Vaper.
Take a look at the side by side comparison of the two tanks with the included uploaded photo and give your opinion on the seating issues with the New Drip Tip System threading on two Triton V2 tanks I have purchased just this month. One does not screw on without a ton of pressure and difficulty and never seats completely. It may be a cross threading issue. You can clearly see the difference in the flush seating of the two separate systems side by side.
I have emailed the USA service center and started an email dialog with a rep regarding this issue.
His response sadly was that he himself had not even heard of this issue; of course I intelligently responded to him that maybe he hadn't but their (New USA Service center) location is so new (as well as this product) that I'm sure he'll be seeing plenty of "UNSEEN BEFORE" issues with the new Triton Tank.
Before I spend the shipping fee on my end as well as send in the required additional $10 dollars for them to ship it back (or a replacement); I would like to see how many others are experiencing the same issue.
I have seen other posts regarding the difficulty of screwing on the new Drip Tip system (https://forums.aspirecig.com/discussion/27318/triton-2-drip-tip-system-almost-impossible-to-remove#latest
), as well as the issues with the Triton RTA system (https://forums.aspirecig.com/discussion/27354/triton-rta-in-the-triton-v2
I can tell you from experience that the RTA system does not function or fit with the new Triton V2. I wish I could return this item for a full refund as this should NO longer be sold for this tank, it will burn all the coils you make (poor juice inlets) and waste more of your time building not too mention the money wasted on the wicking and wire. (The e-juice liquid intake ports do not line up with the vape chimney).
What is most important at this time is that I have the engineering department as well as all future purchasers become aware of these issues.
I am 40 years old. Have been into Vaping/e-cigs for almost a decade, (since the OG ecigs were created). And I'm no novice.
I have probably spent WAY too much time, and money, watching youtube reviews as well as scoured too many websites and forums and blogs on how things work, fit, function, and entertain. I am not hard on my purchases. And I'm fully aware of how to be gentle and read all instruction documents and manuals before even attempting to use any items. I have inspected the threads with a magnifying glass to make sure there are no shavings, shearing, or items like the o-rings in the way.
Thank you in advance.
Tell me what you think fellow forum members and I hope the US service center answers my follow up emails before I spend MORE money on trying to correct what looks like a manufacturing defect. We VAPERS spend a lot of money and time on this hobby for our health and for our entertainment, and only hope that the service and warranty systems in place by each and every individual company we invest in spends just as much money in service and customer satisfaction as they do in Marketing.
I have not experienced TOO much leaking from the tank with the Drip tip system top that does not seat fully yet but I can only imagine it will get worse with time.
