RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Its leaking pretty bad right now... Going to give it a little bit for the cotton to expand a little though.

Its working great, except the leakage

Bummer. That was the problem I had. Too leaky gurgly. I had heard of using hemp rather than cotton but I've no idea where I'd get it from over here

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I just added a piece of 3.5mm wick in the wick slots. See if that helps. 

Whats the proper way to fill this? I took the top cap off, and filled it to the top of the vapor chamber (the part with the wick and coil, not sure the proper term). But that only gets it half full

Thats how I fill it. Not sure how you get it full full, unless you can remove the top cap and leave the tube in the chimney. Filling it the way you describe takes 5ml, how much do you want in it?

I'm an idiot.......

Remove the whole tank so the air tube sticks up and the bottom section and chamber is still on the mod.

Fill to just below the oring on the air tube. Hold the tank upside down an screw in the bottom section.

I'll take pictures tomorrow but treat it as a giant clearomiser.

Like so

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Will have to try that. The silica helped, a little to good. Now I need to do a hard primer pull every few drags to keep from getting dry hits. Better than flooding. 
When I have it apart again, I will get some pics of it to post up

I tucked the silica wick behind the post, when I opened it up it was directly over the coil blocking all air flow. I still need a primer puff once in a while, but its getting real good vapor off this China juice

This thing reminds me of a giant, bullet proof EVOD tank. So far I am liking it, but for some reason my 18350s will not fire in the Roller with it on it. Dont know whats up with that...

It's working good. 3mm wick would have probably worked better. May take a strand or two off it and see how it wicks tonight

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Last night and this morning it was working good. Putting out amazing vapour for a single coil, tank, and pg. 
Still needs that primer puff every few hits. Not sure if I want to take a strand or two out, or let it be for now. 

Didn't check the ohms, probably about 0.8 I am guessing... Should have checked it lol

Sounds good! I think maybe a couple of strands is all that's needed and you'll have it sorted. Nice one Good
