Exactly my experience.  I noticed the factory coil quality dropped about when the leaking started.  The last strip of 3 I bought were just sloppily put together.

What's infuriating is that coils & tanks really aren't that complicated; the larger they are, the easier they should be to manufacture.  Hell....  my Horizon Arctic V8 coils are tiny in comparison, and each of the 60-80w ones I prefer (others go up to 120) regularly last up to 2 weeks.

And now Smok has released yet another "Beast" tank.... but all the problems I've had with this one makes me think the others won't be worthwhile.

It's probably just time to give up on this tank.  Shame, because for the first month the flavor it provided really was incredible.

As for being thirsty, depending on the RBA deck, you can conserve juice by wrapping much higher ohms coils and run it in much lower watts. With a .6 ohms dual coil configuration a dual 26g, 9 wrap, 2.5mm id will provide great flavour, good clouds and do it at 50W and will drink a fraction of juice...

I asked my friend who's had one since they came out, and he's had zero issues.  But then I can hangout in the vape shop for an hour and hear someone talking about having problems with it.

Exactly man.  Its not worth the hassle.  Tanks in general just dont work out for me because the factory coils are trash.  I went rda a while ago and dont see myself getting another tank anytime soon.  Maybe give a decent rda a shot.  So much better IMO. Coils last like a month at least and if you get a burnt hit,  just pull the cotton out and re wick.  Easy

I have also put my tank up and don't see it getting use anytime soon if ever.  If the coil issues get resolved I would try it again.
