Very prone to flooding, much more finicky to wick than I thought.

Once I got it to stop leaking it's actually a pretty nice vape. I notice in the photo from Gatok that it looks like the air holes are in the base shown as it appears there is some cotton sticking out. I have the top with oval holes so tell me how do you get the cotton out of the holes once you put the top cap on...maybe I'm missing something. I too think maybe the oval holes are too big. I have three more of these coming so will see if all are the same. For now I'll just keep stuffing the chamber with cotton.

Mine never floods or gurgles, even with 50/50 nic salts.

You have the one with the oval airholes?

I strongly suspect that this is a combo of how someone vapes (low/high Watts, MTL, restricted DL, airflow insert) and the juice (VG, PG etc.) they're using.

I also strongly suspect there is no flooding with the "old" version with the smaller holes and I am just claiming (agreeing with someone from another thread) that using the large, oval holes was a stupid idea brought up by "some stupid testers", possibly as a way to make the device better for restricted DL and 100% VG maybe....as juiceflow is rarely ever an issue with low wattage MTL, even with very tiny juice holes.

Yes mine has oval holes in the top cap, I got the gold one and it's very nice if just a bit flimsy. I am a restricted dl vapor and use 60/40 pg/vg or 50/50. Some have said the version 1 has smaller airholes and I have one coming so should be able to tell if that's the problem.

As long as your holes are dammed with plenty of cotton as per the photo and there is nothing else missing .... these don't leak IME. No matter the VG/PG ratio.

1. Place your cotton and cut it flush with the O-Ring.




2. With the help of tweezers, pass the cotton through the chamber insert. Preferably, the holes must be slightly misaligned from coil. (15-20 degrees)






3. Push the cotton down the deck and against the holes, as shown in pictures. Make sure the holes are totally covered.






That's it. Prime an vape.

Don't stuff the chamber full of cotton. It's leaking because you do use too much cotton. This is an old issue that we talked about months a go. If you do use too much cotton and the cotton touches the posts than it's going to leak the juice from the posts to the base.





Just enuogh cotton to cover the juice holes is more than enough. Cut the cotton at the lenght of the base and put your coil in an angle like shown in the picture to make the legs shorter and you can put your cotton easily sideways to the juice holes.

I'm putting my coil 3-5 mm from the airflow hole. I'm uisng an 8 wraps Kanthal 27 AWG around 2.5mm coil and vape it at 9-12 Watt. I'm using the 1.2 mm AFC insert (the second smallest and I think it's the one that was preinstalled). I'm using 50/50 juices.

I hope this helps and if it's still leaking check your O-rings.

The only time I've had one of these leak is when I've forgotten to put the chimney cap back on

Weird, I always cut the cotton after I put the chamber insert.

1. Pass the cotton up through the chamber insert. Holes aligned with coil.
2. Cut the cotton flush with the top of the chamber.
3. Push the cotton down the deck and against the holes. Make sure the holes are totally covered.
4. Prime, put the top cap. Screw the tank.

I also cut it after I put the coil chamber back as this is much easier to get the cotton through the coil chamber to get it back on the deck. As long as you don't stuff it full of cotton it should work just fine.
