Hot top cap ?
Hi everybody, I have a question for you, Pico users :

Does the top cap and the drip tip of this Pico become hot when vaping and/or chain vaping ?

Just want to know that because that's a problem I have with the RTAs I use...

Thanks

I remember the drip tip getting hot, but I switched to POM or resin tips instead.

i dont really notice the heat, warm but not excessive heat, and using a basic acrylic drip tip

just taken 5 drags on mine and its just barely warm
SKU 3390600
with these you can leave them in place and the fill ring will clear it when taking it off

Maybe the peek or acrylic chamber helps not to make the top cap and drip tip too hot, what do you think?
On the RTAs I have that get really hot, there is a metal chamber, so I guess it could be the reason, metal conducts heat...

After the switch it was fine, but a slightly wider bore or one with a widening chamfer at the top is good too if the vapor is dense.

I think it's hot because the chamber is so close to the drip tip. All my smaller atomizers are like that.

The drip tip needs to be narrow enough for the top cap to slip over too. I can't remember the size...

@gmm11
I read on another thread from another clone that you had big leaking issues...
Have you managed to find a solution or do you now use this particular clone :

no more leaking, i did find a bit of a nick on the base of the coil i was using and dumped it ,tried a diff coil and works perfect, one thing to make sure is, if using the clr coils, when you put the top part of it on, just use one turn, that ensures a good seal against the o ring on the chimney, , ive still to add a blob of solder to the bottom of the 510 pin on the rba set up as it wont make contact
