Sub tank on a tube mod?
Whether it's semi mech or fully mech, you shouldn't use sub tanks on them.
Just saying
CJ hards say Vape long & prosper!!

Just blurting nonsense, you mean. There's no problem with the tube form factor, or even with mechs as a species. It's mechs without a proper 510 connector (that is, hybrids) that are a problem. In this case, it's a VV tube with the same kind of 510 connector you'd find on a box mod.

The real issue here is the way they spelled flash 😂
If you want on or off the list just let me know.

Description should be changed. Says rta in details, subohm in package content. But according to the picture, subohm is correct. Just to add one more to the post count.
We can't agree on everything.

Do you EVER engage your brain before "Just saying"?

The general rule of thumb relating to Sub-Ohm Tanks and Mechs is largely aimed at new and/or inexperienced Vapers, because...

1) Most Mechs these days have hybrid tops to them (as mentioned in a post above), and coupled with the short positive pins on many Sub-Ohms (the pins of which sometimes shift inwards too) can lead to a nasty and possibly dangerous short.

2) One needs to use Ohm's Law in relation to the coil head and the battery being used.

However, if you're experienced and know what you're doing, and your Mod has a proper 510 top cap/connection (as I assume this Augvape Mod has), then the risks are negligible.

I like to live dangerously and have used sub ohm tanks on hybrid mechs for over 5 years with no issues. Same with using batteries with torn wraps. Vaping myths busted.

They are not myths. A press-fit pin and/or torn battery wraps are potentially dangerous IF certain conditions apply. It's way overblown, but stuff happens...and if you use side-firing mech tubes, you need to pay more attention than normal...that's how we can vape long and prosper!
What does he mean when he says words?

CJ's pattern is: start threads with asinine statements, and then never respond. I tried once with him on some thread he started about pre-made nichrome coil heads killing people, or some nonsense like that.

Dude just doesn't seem to care. Spread misinformation & run, is the most boring form of trolling.

Really?! Oh my goodness... LOL!!

You're right of course. I shouldn't take the bait. ;-)
