Haven't had rust, but I've had metal shavings in there.

Stainless steel does not rust and I believe HCigar says theirs is made from it but I could be wrong.

Edit* no mention of stainless steel construction on the product site.

The body is stainless, but I wouldn't put money on the valve assembly being stainless, especially the tiny spring that holds the ball in place.

It depends on the grade of stainless steel as far as rust goes. I have knives made from stainless that get surface rust and others that never do.

Is it ok for use?? I mean I wont use the fill hole to fill just the top method but the hole is still there and rust would probably enter my ejuice no?

Where did you get it from? Not sure how I would feel about that one. You could always block the fill hole from the inside of the tank to ensure nothing coming out of that part.

you could probably us the little rubber plug from an rsst or something similar to cap it. I wouldn't worry about it, rust (iron oxide) would get trapped in the wick anyhow. I don't think it would vaporize, you would probably have it on a well used coil.

The vendor I got it from is fixing the issue and finding out if all his stock is like that. Thank for the tips tho
