VaporRange is showing mine as "back ordered"....great....
A lot of pieces to this attie...
Just like the original.
They may be similar, but I'm really diggin' the flavor off of this V2. Muy Bueno!!!
And so far (knock on wood), no leaking.
Blaq anyone? Gotta do the matchy-matchy thing.
They fucked up ROXY’s TANK!
I ️ BAM
Recieved mine in the mail today. Right off the bat I am not impressed with how the deck is indexed into the chamber. Hopefully mine wears in soon, but the first time I tried to put it in it took me maybe 5 mins of fiddling to get it lined up and seated properly.
Seems like I could fit bigger coils into the OG Boreas than I can in this one. Or maybe I have just gotten used to building on my 30mm Mizer. Not sure there.
Wicking... Not liking the wick cups for the tails. I LOVED the way you simply tucked wicks under the OG Boreas coils.
Now granted, I haven't even fired it off yet, but these are just my first thoughts after popping out of the tube. Ill update after I use it a few days.
Edit: Post didnt go through so Ill update it now....
Well I have been using it for a few hours now. My build is a three core fused clapton (28g SS x 3 wrapped in 40g Nichrome) 6 wraps, 3.5mm dual coils. running on a DNA250 at 465 degrees. Nice tasty vape. But I had to loose that god awful driptip after the first few hits. Issue one, its to short. Issue two, the damn knurling. I prefer to NOT get road rash from vaping.
Im gonna use this build for a couple days and then Ill play with rebuilding it and see if any of my other feelings are solved. So far though I do like it. Do I like it better than my OG Boreas? Im not sure... Time will tell.
Mine finally shipped from VaporRange today, I hope to see it by the weekend.
After spending some time with it, I'm still really liking this thing. The lack of an o-ring sealing the deck to the chamber hasn't been an issue. I've sat for an hour or so at a time at work with it in my pocket and it hasn't leaked a drop, still using the same simple wicking I mentioned in my last post.
The whistly airflow is driving me insane though. I noticed that the edges of the airflow holes on the inside of the chamber are pretty rough. I'm gonna try smoothing them out with a dremel and see if that solves the problem.
Just wanted to give a little update now that it's been put through its paces.
Living on the edge this morning...
Tank was 3/4 empty, refilled while the airflow was wide open, with no burping needed and no leaking. Definitely a keeper.
If I'd known I was gonna have to wait this long from a US vendor, I'd have ordered from someone else.....
Subtank supply... ALWAYS subtanksupply...
I got an in-stock alert from them after I'd placed the order with VaporRange....hindsight, right? I did get mine in the mail a few minutes ago though, and will chalk this one up as a lesson learned.
Okay, I think I like it. No issues coiling or wicking (the wicking was the only part I was concerned with), so far no leaks; flavor is good...the tip doesn't bother me as I don't wrap my lips around them that tightly to begin with, lol! Certainly looks nice.
But the box. I HATE the box. I don't like digging for stuff.
Chef, what would closing the AFC do? there is no JFC linked to it. and once you open the top the juice tank is open to air anyway... Not seeing as how it matters on the V2.
It doesn't - just comparing it to the V1.
Oh... My bad. Thought you knew something I didnt. I mean... Oh hell, time for another margarita!
what are some good builds people are using in this tank? I just cant get it to compare to my original Boreas... Kinda feeling bummed about it.
