RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I'm having an issue with my Mad Hatter RDA. It leaks terrible. I thought it was the "O" rings so I replaced them. Still leaks. Any Ideas?

Over dripping?

Where is it leaking from?

My money is it is leaking from the air channels when you tip it to vape. Too much juice in the juice well and it runs out the bottom air inlets. Fantastic looking atty, BTW!

I think you are right. I think in an attempt to avoid a dry hit, I over juice it. Mine is black but I like that copper one. I really like how the cap opens on a hinge. very cool.

I just wanted to add that although I like my Mad Hatter, it does not hold much juice. I have a Patriot and a Hell Boy that I can vape 4 or 5 times before dripping. I like that Revolt Atty. 100% hospital grade stainless steel. $99. I don't think so. There are a bunch of Revolt clones. They look the same. 1/3 the price.

Yeah with a shallow "well" if you overfill you can forget it , juice everywhere.  If you want an outstanding RDA with flavor that beats the overwhelming majority of RDA's on the market try a Veritas , it's stellar and has a deep juice well (authentic and 1:1 clones only) most other clones have a shorter back wall and a shallower juice well which i hate ,  the best part, very difficult to get this thing to leak. 

I hear the new Origen V3 is fantastic as well , it's a V2 with much improved airflow .   I am a flavor freak and these two are over the top for flavor , i mean absolutely outstanding .  Both hold a lot of juice and you can vape a long while before refilling .

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I second that motion. The Veritas is spectacular. Kind of annoying to build, but worth it. I put a single horizontal parallel coil in mine and it vapes like a champ, tons of flavor and nice clouds to boot. Just follow RiP Trippers' build video, but with parallel wraps instead of a normal single coil. And please don't even try to build dual vertical coils, I know that's what the Veritas is made for but dear God it's horrible.

Michael..Thanks for the tip. No dual coils. Actually, I have only built dual coils twice. I have found that my single coils at about .27 to .30 ohms is all I need. Very nice cloud and flavor production.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Need your all's opinion. I have a Kangertech Sub tank plus. The coil head is about 24 hours old, and has moderate vaping on it. Well I cranked up my Cool Fire 4 to 40 watts, and I'm getting a hint of burny taste. Is it possible that some sub tanks can't handle 40 watts or higher?
