    Great review. I'm still getting used to it and struggling to adore it like I do the ijoy exo, whose flavour I find is far better. After painting the wicks, i put my tweezer in the juice well to make juice channels to prevent dry hits. Is that necessary? It stopped the dry hits. As far as coils are concerned, are SS 316L 0.4 aliens too much for it and what wattage would you use? Or would you go with flat twisted Kanthal 0.4 ohm?

    I have a .49 coil in mine right now and I'm getting a great vape at 35 watts. So maybe try 40-50 watts and see how you like it.

    Still getting used to RTA's but absolutely love the new ones coming out. The engine nano doesn't do it for me though. Love the ijoy exo single deck. amazing. Have the new Troll rta which is nice but prefer single coil rta's p.s your wicking tutorial seems to be spot-on. So many ways to wick RTA's. It'seems great craic experimenting with coils and wicking. love it

    Just thinking, would this tank-for its size-be better suited to twisted Kanthal rather than big built coils? I must try it out...

    Personally, I only use the single coil deck with no restrictor pin and I normally install a 3mm ID coil. That's the way I run it and I love the flavor I get. I pretty much only run SS in my RTA’S.

    Cheers again for the tips. Get sick of the YouTube hype about stuff, it's hard to work out what's bullshit and what's not.

    Thanks for all of the tips! I just got this RTA, and I'm having some leaking issues. I'm assuming it's my wicking. I'll keep doing it until I get it right. This is a very helpful thread. Thanks for the review!

    Raymo2u did a great wicking tutorial somewhere in this thread.

    If you are just trying to use a normal coil (for a regulated device) then I would suggest you make a 6 wrap 3.5mm ID Coil and use low wattage.
