RE: Dry hits on rda
Hello again popo. Lots of questions. What atty are you using? What Ohm coil? How many coils? How are you wicking? What wicking do you use? What power are you using? What is the PG/VG ratio of the juice? And so on...

If you are not waiting long enough, the wicks might not yet be fully wetted with juice.

If you are using Max VG liquid, wicking will be slow. It would be easy to dry out the wick.

Right off, I agree with Don in possibly not waiting long enough between draws for proper juice wicking. And 70 VG is pretty thick juice, so it would take even longer. Possibly you have too much cotton?

Hey popo
You could try tightening the coils, they can become lose through thermal expansion and in doing so cause a burned taste. It'll also put extra load on the battery so it's pretty important to check.
What wire did you use for the coil?
How many hits are you taking after dripping? Most times you'll likley get 3-5 hits before you need to drip it again, it's possible to get more from a Scottish wick style but the principal of keeping it really moist is the same. 

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!
