Oh ya the SSV has a small hole like it always has. The Super has to come through the bottom, but is still separated from any electronics. I guess I meant the heating element, and together the cover and element do make the heater as Stickstones said
The point is, that the air path touches the ceramic, at least for the LSV, which is what this thread is about. Thanks for the input that the ceramic is from Japan, I didn't know that! Then again, i'm not concerned about the ceramic having negative health effects as some seam to think.
There ya go @Alexis !
