Juice control
May i know if u guys totally tighten the chimney top cap or lightly screw it down? i tend to have dry hits if i fully tighten it down so now i basically just tighten it so that it holds in place, no more dry hits but juice spits. damn...

(Noob here)
I tighten it down all the way and then unwind it a couple of turns. Haven't had spitting or dry burns ( 50% VG), but sometimes when uncrewing the tank for refilling the chimney topcap will stay stuck to the tube on top and unscrew from the chimney.
The only thing I miss about smoking are the lighters. Go figure!

Don't bother putting your wick in the holes, I just leave the tails a little long, fold it into the deck, and block the holes with the wick shoulders, no more issues with leaking, dry hits, none of that nonsense, no trying to adjust flow either. Just works, and much better at that.

Hmm mine have dry hits again. I tried to trim the cotton that are inserted into the wick shoulders but still no luck. Maybe I will try ur method to fold the wick.

That wicking style is actually suggested by the instructions that comes with the authentic. There's a PDF of the manual in my drop box if you're interested (link in my signature, I think it's in the technical folder).

The most obvious solution is to use less wick. Try wrapping a longer thinner coil if needs be. I know the top cap is described by the manufacturers as 'juice control', but I really don't suggest you use it as such. With the cap unscrewed slightly, the act of screwimg the base on and off throw it out if adjustment, or to unscrew completely. If you have a persistent issue, then open up the juice holes with a file or dremel. FT sell spare chimneys, so it might be worth picking up a spare before you start.

Nymzavril may I confirm with u if one of the post is slightly longer than the other? The cotton within the chamber always dried up while the ends at the exit hole are wet from my straight tru method. Hmm... So it must be the chamber cap that's blocking juice from entering the chamber tru the cotton. Anyway I did the S bend cotton build and see how it goes. Yeah I know it's a great flavor atty and that's why I got it. Hope this wicking works. If not I would have to go back with my favorite K4. 😜
