    Bebop got a reaction from Tam in Vape pen all messed up   
    well if it's the X20 starter kit I found it's a pen style ego battery and that means your mouth piece is the tank and coil and most likely you broke the coil or damaged it In a some way and now it is shorting out.  so the short story is you need a new tank and I would head back to the store and shop.

    could be too much nicotine, either in the juice or after many hits.....

    wattage mode is correct
    your battery is capable of TC Mode (temp control) but your tank is not.
    with a .15 coil I would start around 50 watts and bump up from there.  watch your voltage.  when you hit 3.7 - 4.2 you should be hitting the sweet spot for that coil. take note of what wattage it is and work it from there.  higher wattages will tend to burn out the coil faster.  lower wattages will be weak and not produce clouds.
    Very important to have your air flow wide open.  low air flow will also produce unsatisfactory clouds and tend to burn out coils.
     
    hope that helps.

    a 1.2 ohm coil will fry quickly at 50watts.
    get some .5ohm coils
     
    otherwise keep that 1.2 ohm coil at 20watts or less or or your just going to burn through coils like they're nothing.

    Personally if you want to get into that high of a power range I recommend that you learn to build your own coils and use a rebuildable atty.  Commercial coils are simply unreliable at high power.  They can be pretty "hit and miss".

    One other reason could be that you need to break in a coil. You prime a new coil with a couple of drops in the coil?
    Drop you wattage on a net coil. Start at say 50 watts use it for a few hours then slowly up the wattage. Good luck.

    ...Back in my day, mechanical mods are all we had. And we had to vape them uphill, both ways.

    This is common with new vapers in my opinion because they hate to conserve energy. Haha
     
    The simplicity of it is that you are craving the big hit and you're simply burning out your coils prematurely but running them too high a wattage.  Especially if it's true that you are using 80pg 20vg.  
    You don't say watt your coil resistance is so it's hard to comment exactly on your power/wattage issue.  
    You are transitioning from smoking to vaping and they are VERY different inspite if the fact that they look so similar.  
    My advice is to lower your wattage to the most acceptable vapor production for YOU and learn and understand that you are getting your nicotine in a WAY different way thsn smoking.  
    It just takes a little while to get used to it.  It's going to cost you a little more to figure out. Ease up on the pedal a little and enjoy the experience and you'll make it.

    UPDATE- GOOD TIMES!!!

    So I revisited the build- cut my wicks just under top of tank level- shorter length probably wick easier to coil- more cotton thru the actual coil and less in channels. Also put an extra loop on my coils as it could easy handle it space wise and changed juice.

    Not sure what it was- probably mixture of juice (seemed to have no flavour on the dripper too but was tasty as hell few days ago) and cotton clogging up channels but good times ahead!

    One of the 2 cells could be weak. LiPo cells act funny when they get old sometimes. I have a couple batteries for my RC cars that do that too. I took one apart and one cell was dead, the other was fine. No fix for it that I know of.

    Hey Guys, 
    Sorry for the delay on this. Colors are specifically chosen using Vapor Talk's internal brand guide. Besides, I think Purple looks cute on your Walt
    I see what's going on here, it's the mobile version of the website. I should have this fixed roughly within the next 10-15 mins. Thanks for bring it up!

    I would much rather be green.  Kinda a Grinch green if possible?  I don't have a purse that goes with purple.  Or heals either.

    Bebop got a reaction from KarmicRage in Tc   
    Just a tip! TC loves airflow.  Too little airflow action makes coil ceiling out at max temp and shuts it down.  That's just my experience and my advice on getting most out of TC. YMMV.

    I follow a simple rule for myself.  I don't vape anything that I have any kind of reaction to.....even if that reaction is "huh...this doesn't taste right".

    I hear a lot of good things about that mod elsewhere.  Personally, I'm put off a little by the name.  I know, poor criteria to judge a mod.  But it and the assvape atty came out about the same time and I just could not wrap my head around sticking that in my mouth.  I guess the other thing that just doesn't appeal to me is the "retro" or boxy design.  Don't get me wrong, it looks fine in consideration of it's intended style but for me it lacks refinement.  I would be running around going "Me Grog!  Me Vape!".  I'm sure in another person's hand it would look fine to me.

    Hi my beloved vapor peeps.
    My participation has dropped off considerably.  I apologize. I still manage to drive by a couple times per week, not always posting but definitely checking in on you guys.  
    I'm still going strong, vaping away, making my own juice, rarely trying anything new these days.  Still actively promoting vaping to others in need.  Very much an advocate. 
    And I especially love checking in to the goings on around here. Always entertaining haha
     I've just been busy.  Travelling. I'm moving next week (not far, but a move is a move!). And I've been involved in a pretty big music project that's got my attention for many hours a week and I only have so many on-line hours to spend. I'm redoing my whole home work station. Plus it's summer and when my teaching schedule lightens I'm all about getting busy on my own stuff. I'm expanding my business.  I've never worked harder in my life but I love it, it's just time consuming!!
    I love you all and hope you're doing well.  I will always appreciate Vaportalk and what it has done for me and I thank each and every one of you, and those long gone, for your contributions and insight and advice. 
    I'll be around. I promise to stop in now and again.  This is no farewell.
