Protank II coil rubber
Has anyone else found that the rubber at the base of the coil on the Protank 2 tends to expand and block the airway when attached to a battery? I've had to push the contact at the end in to compress the rubber so I can trim it off with a sharp blade before I can use it.

I cant compare with any other tank, nor can I take it apart now, as im short on liquid...

but I definitely believe, there could be something wrong with the airflow (amongst other things), as its very "inconsistent"... pulling (sometimes) a few times, until sufficient vapor, other times ok, then bad (pressing buttons on the mod, doesn't help) etc etc...

"inconsistent and unexpected in the result"... I would call that - by now...

maybe its normal, but... hm... :/

@littlered: happened to me before also.

i did not know if :
- the rubber i used was poor quality (i just ended having a bag full of protank/vivi nova spares, more or less crappy)
- the fact that i rebuilt the coils with too low ohms, produced too much heat...

then i made my mind moving on to something with less faulty design (RBA's)


-Cheers and happy new year ;)


*edit*: are you using pre made coils ? or are you rebuilding yours ?

I order a lot of bottom coils, but only the rubbers need replace.
Maybe order them more later.

@Dirty_Harry, @ngocle, it's actually in the original two pre-made coils that come with the Protank. I'm using it with the Magneto Telescopic Mod. It works fine if I don't screw the Protank all the way down, but the it's loose and tends to rotate. As soon as I tighten it up, I get no airflow and end up sucking in liquid. So I've had to trim the rubber(silicon) when it's in a compressed state. I do this by pushing the centre pin against a solid piece of metal until the the rubber expands out, then rotate it while holding a blade against the metal tube to cut the rubber.

The rubber piece I am referring to is this:

@ngocle, I'm not sure I know what you mean. What would I do with them?
