It's good to know that it can use 22/24G wire. 20/22G are my go to round wire gauges. What is the highest wattage you have pushed through this while the wicking can still keep up and it doesn't get too hot yet?

I had a look at the Footoon shop and I think that $3 for 1 ceramic coil plus shipping costs is too much. It's cheaper to just buy a new tank from FT and that also includes 2 ceramic coils. ???

Guys, didn't check the videos yet (will do this evening), but a quick question to those, who own this tank:

Once built properly, can the vape you get out of this RTA be compared to NON-rebuildable iJust 2 / Melo 3 EC coil heads (picture below)?

Just in case, I mean coils like SKU 2892300 and SKU 2892200.
They are also vertical and rather fun to vape.

I think that Vic said in his review that he did push it to it's limits up to 110 Watt. Not something I'm going to try. :D

I never used Ijust/Melo coils, but did vape on a lot of Kanger SSOCC coils which are basically the same, and IMO this RBA is much better.

That would be cheaper if you only buy one coil, yes. But please bear in mind i'm not 100% sure on how many cubs there where in the package. It's just too long ago. There were 2 extra coils, 1 ohm and 0,4 ohm, so i'm assuming there where 2 cubs but not sure.

What I did, I ordered a big piece of cotton to have enough reserve, and at the same time ordered a few cubs and an extra RBA. All together made it worth the shipping costs.

----

I'm normally a low wattage vaper, but i did crank it up to 50 - 60 watts a few times for fun. It kept up easily. The thing is that there is so much saturated cotton around the coil that it's very hard to get a dry hit. It's just constantly all juiced up :)

+2 details
Made a pic of the package and what's included.




Also found a bag with a complete fics package. In the "includes" on the box says "one extra fics", so i'm pretty sure there's a total of 2 ceramic cubs.

found a bag with old used coils. I always used them for several weeks at a time, and you can see how clean they still are.



BTW, those are 24G Ni80's

I wonder if notch coils would fit in this thing?

Got mine yesterday and was most impressed. Used the included coil but when I picked it up in the morning it had flooded. Initially I bottom filled it (not quite half way...I'll admit I hadn't fully read the directions) but that shouldn't matter. Curious to know how far open one should leave the air hole (square)? Seems fine now but is there something I'm doing (or can rectify) to avoid future flooding?

If it floods your wicking is wrong. Never had it flood and no need to close airflow.
Did you use both the thin and the thick cotton? First the thin, then the thick cotton.
The cotton needs to be so thick around the cub that it is almost hard to put it in the rba. I always put it in with a twist.
If you can post a picture
