idk if juice is washing it clean, or not going up the white sides.
oh, the juice is fairly clear.
Mine will do that if I haven’t cleaned the rda after a darker or oxidized juice. -I rarely clean my rdas so it happens a lot.
For some reason it happens to me sometimes. I feel like its when i dont get the air flow holes in front if the coil but the cotton instead. With the profile that's not likely though
Try trimming just the dark areas with a sharp scissor & see if it helps I’m thinking along the lines of rayon. When rayon does that it’s because it’s too dense in those areas. Can’t hurt to try.
this or there is spot that is just barley in contact with that edge of the mess... the fact it is happening reverse parallel i suspect the former might be a tad to much in those spots.
it was cleaned.
i just checked it, it does look like it was denser on the darker sides. i worked it around to see howw that works, but its about ready for a rewick anyway.
Maybe condensation dripping from the top cap and its darker than the juice being vaped. I got the idea thinking maybe the cotton was touching the sidewall of the cap.
This used to drive me crazy. I started looking into why it did it, and found that it was from uneven wicking. The dark sections were always more dense and would draw the cooked juice off the coil as that area dried up.
I also found that this will happen with standard coils, but usually only when one side of the wicking is more dense than the other side. Then you end up with dark streaks on one side and not the other.
yep which is why you see some wicking videos pull the wick in both directions and even rock it to an extent when i started rocking mine i got this to cut back to almost never. now it either keeps up or burns at some point.
cause your wick hates you....
. let me rephrase that for you = all my wicks hate me
i'm think'n this is it. after i tweeked it around, its working great now.
This is exactly what’s happening. Condensation which is darkened from the heat is running down the side of the topcap and onto the wick.
The ‘pattern’ depends on how he holds his mod. If he would swap from thumb-fire to finger-fire, the patten would swap too.
i hold it different ways. after tweeking around the wic, the discolor is gone, yes, its now nearly completely gone.
now, i'm not saying that condensation thing is not possible, as it does make sense.
I get that on my Profiles all the time. I'll pull the top cap and wipe it out with a tissue. All good then.
I get them on both sides at times.
I will sacrifice one of @Rossum 's goats to the rda god K'nthtul in your behalf. Please change your "evil" ways lest they send out "the Dave that's never here" to hold an intervention on you. Laugh all want but when that Dave shows up and wiggles the finger, oh you just know you've really crossed "the line".
I too am guilty of not really giving my rdas a full on proper cleaning. Yeah sure, I might re-coil them every few weeks or so, or months. I don't let them soak in hot soapy water, use q-tips, pamper them with vape towels. Nah, they're metal, metal can be abused.
Interestingly enough ever notice how nobody can directly point out to you this so called "line"? I think they're full of beans. Everybody knows we live in a sphere, it's all circular. How can there be some arbitrary "line"?
This confirms my long held hypothesis that a lot wrong in the world at large stems from unbalance. We need to shift the poles, soon, very soon.
I have found that with the SS mesh this happens when the wick is not tight against the mesh, YMMV
