Another New Guy
Hello. I'm relatively new to vaping. I started about a week ago, and haven't lit a Winston yet. I purchased an evod 2 starter kit, but was immediately disappointed. The 'hits' weren't strong, and being a former Winston smoker, that's kind of what I was looking for. I've also had battery troubles. The little contact 'doohickey' gets pushed down, and I have to pry it up gently every time I switch batteries. Anyway, after some internet searching, I decided to order an MVP 20, which seemed to be the choice of regular vapers. I also ordered a Innokin Gladius adjustable air flow tank. I pretty much stick with the tobacco flavored liquids.

It gets a bit overwhelming reading threads that discuss clones, modding, ohms and such. It might as well be in a different language, to me. The MVP comes with coils, so I would guess those would be the ones to keep using? I read a thread with some rebuilding components, such as these:

http://www.fasttech.com/products/3033/10...iled-wires

http://www.fasttech.com/products/3028/10...izer-1-0ml

will these be compatible with my new MVP?  I love tinkering around on the workbench, and if I can rebuild the coils, I'd like to give it a try.

Thanks for any and all help.

Hi and welcome Kramer!

Those coils will be fine. As will the atomiser. You'll probably want to open the air hole up a bit but this is easy as the top cap is aluminium and can be reamed out with a penknife.

Those should work just fine on the MVP.

Have fun!

RE: Another New Guy
It'll be a while. Using the packet option to the UK it tends to take 2 weeks from shipping.

BTW we write dates differently in the UK - that's the 4th of January this year.

Generally its hit or miss with their holiday's but if no holiday in china, it is about a 3 week ship time to US, also make sure when you order to look if its in stock or that could set back ship dates even longer, I only order from them if its something I don't need right off. Good luck

RE: Another New Guy
I was on a course where 2/3 of the class were from the US and we're mostly still in touch. We found out the hard way about being careful what you mean with dates.
