These are different
Anybody order these recently and find out after receiving they are different? Mine has an extra silicone seal under the wick. For instance from the top... air hole shaft - regular silicone piece - wicks -"extra silicone piece". It was absolutely horrible until I removed the extra silicone gasket thingy.

Mine arrived today, also with the silicon ring just under the wicks. This was a bad sign, as the 1.8ohm version also came with these and they are absolutely horrible.

After removing the silicon, I'm getting less of the burning -- point being less and not none. It's bearable at 7 watts (4.2v @ 2.5ohm), but the flavor and vapor aren't really there.

I'm going to keep using these for a bit and hope they just need some breaking in, as I've so far used them for less than an hour. The problem could also just be my high VG ratio (95%+). We'll see, I guess, and I'll write an update if things change.

Yes, i've got the same, they are fake. The grove at the very bottom is also much shallower than genuine items which makes the draw tighter and makes it pointless rebuilding them. They are good fakes, but they are fake and not authentic kanger as they are advertised therefore i'm not interested. I've braught several boxes and i'm not happy. I've wasted time and juice getting to the bottom of this and i have requested a refund from fasttech.

Please express FASTTECH to these Authentic PROTANK Coil Clearomizer Heads (5-Pack)!!!!
When I sent you a photo-So you do not see the difference! For three days the heads of all 5 pieces of broken!
I was very angry about this dysfunctional authentic coils.
This is not about $ 7.45 but consumer confidence !
I see I'm not the only one who gets these coils do not like garbage and do not work and FASTTECH pretends not to know about anything.

I got these and yes they are very different from the heads that came with the protank.

One difference is the base of the head is a lot flatter and the ones that came with the protank were more beveled and smooth. There was also a flat o-ring where the wick sits which was not there on the original.

Somehow, these heads casue the draw to be very tight. Because of the lack of air flow, it eventually end up sucking juice into the air shaft, causing gargling.

I threw away most of the heads from this pack, and started rebuilding the heads I got with the protank.

Invest your money on some kanthal/3mm wick and make your own rather than waste money on these :)
Ain't nobody got time for signatures!

Hi Linda.... இڿڰۣڿڰღ
I'm a little bit sad.
Coils are different, They also have one extra silicone gasket.Coil heads does not last even one day.
For three days I have needed all five. We use them to 3.7 -3.8 V - Their work is very short!!!
I use PROTANK four months and I use branded my head still 7-10 working days!
Where is the problem????
Slovakia is-authentic = original ☜ (◑ ‿ ◐)  ☞ the significance of the word authentic in Hong Kong???
Sincerely Ivan.

My last pack had o rings all over the place. One head had 5 silicon rings on it !
They look like the authentic ones except that whoever is assembling them has got o ring fever.
I now have a little box with a dozen spare silicon rings.
(i suspect the word 'authentic' will soon be dropped from the listing) :)
More sense than money.....

I have been in comms with fasttech about this and they have confirmed they will give me a refund plus the cost of the postage to post it back to them which i am in the process of doing now. If you have issues let them know, i'm sure they will refund for the non authentic heads

I made the second post on this thread and would like to provide an update.

After using 4 of the 5 in my pack, I'm 100% sure that the batch is either fake or defective, just like the 1.8ohm "authentic" packs that disappointed me. They're all effin' unusable on high VG, whereas the real heads that came with the Protank 2 were flawless.

14 bad coil heads in a row is pretty bad. So bad I've started experimenting with making my own cotton wicks to put on the coils. After 2 days, I'm glad I started experimenting, as replacing the wicks alone improves performance quite a bit. Problem is, cotton goes bad after a single tank...

i have the 1.8 version, which shows 2.2 or 2.1 ohms on the vv3...

in the beginning i looked at some chart and vaped on 3.4 - 3.7 volts...

meanwhile im constantly on 4.0 volt (9 - 10 watts), already for most of the time (in total 7 or 8 days of vaping) on the same (1.8 ohms) replacement coil.
3.4 to 3.7 is just no vapor at all...

also, i have permanently wet in the 510 threading of the vv3, and its impossible to screw the things tighter together... i think it must come from the leaking coil ?

the original ones from the package have a different "ohm" sign than the authentic replacement coils, and the oring going into the base is white and different...
this ring looks anyway weird in the replacement coils, as it seems unaligned and not fit totally into the metal... it stands out and is uneven around the coil...

also the top plastic cap is larger in the original package one, than the replacement ones...

the replacement coils are certainly different than with the original coils...

unfortunately i couldnt vape with the original one, as it just wouldnt work... but have one more left (2 in the kanger tank package, each 2.5 ohms)...
will try again or try the second one soon...

but leaking into the mod and ever increasing voltage/wattage, to get vape i can confirm..

the first two pulls are always crap, so i vape at least 3 and more pulls every time, to get some vapor...
exception: when the mod was put upside down for a while, then the first puff is very good...

when the tank is only 1/3 full, there is no vaping possible anymore, though that can be normal ?

but i also think, there is something wrng with these coils...
