Raphael / Sigelei 213
First I'll say I've really appreciated the people on this forum. This has been a real learning experience the past 2-3 months when I picked vaping up...

I have a Sigelei 213W mod (new). I put my Raphael tank on top of it last night...
My problem/question is when I draw I am taking about 3x amount of air in as I do on any other mod I've tried. The thing actually almost whistles on the draw. HUGE airflow with VERY little vapor production, and it draws like that from full open airflow, all the way to having the airflow ring all but closed. It's on a .2Ohm (80W) pre-made coil. And I've even tried varying wattage from the 50's on up to the 80W range with no effect. The mod seems to work fine with other tanks and I'm at a loss as to explain what's going on with this Raphael tank. Anyone have any advice or know what may be going on with this tank?

Can you close the airflow a bit? By tightening the airflow you'll cause more suction to pull more juice onto the coil, which should give you a better hit. And as a side note, make sure the mod is reading it at (or at least close to) the correct resistance.

Airflow ring from full open to almost full closed. No real measurable change in performance.. Just a whole bunch of air with some sporadic puffs of vapor at then end of the exhale. Got the tank 2 days ago. Worked ok for a little bit that first day. Now, not so much. Driving me nuts because I like it; great flavor.

If you are talking about the Rafale from Crown then I hate to say but it is not as good as the original Crown. It lacks flavor and vape in comparison to the first.

You're getting some vapor on the tail end of the hit? Perhaps it's taking a while to heat up. Try firing it for about a second before you take a puff, that could help.

MOD reading just fine....
Between these 2 photos there is no noticeable changes in performance.

I'll give it a 5 count to ramp up. No effect.

RE: Raphael / Sigelei 213
screw the deck on the mod and take a look at the coils
are they glowing red when you hit the button

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

This has been utilizing the factory pre-built coils right out of the box. No problems with any other tanks/decks on the mod. Nor does this Rafael work decently at all on other mods I've put it on.
