@WitchWolf Congrats on getting into the game. The biggest difference between the V2 and the Supreme is that the Supreme has air and juice flow, the V2 has only air flow. Understanding that it can be confusing on all these different models and versions OF models, all of my V2’s have a metal air flow band. All of my V1’s came with the removable rubber vape bands, all of which I took off.
On my V1’s I never use the rubber vape band, and have never had any leaking, sideways, upside down, just doesn’t matter. On my V2’s I typically run with the metal air flow ring wide open, again, never had any leaking. No real pitfalls with the V1’s or V2’s but occasionally if I’ve OVER packed the cotton and I find dry hits coming, I either block off all air flow holes, or turn OFF the air flow, and take a drag or two, to re-prime, then open air back up and keep vaping.
Because of their designs (at least the V1 and V2’s) with no juice flow, HOW you wick and how MUCH you wick has a direct impact on wicking. Can you pack the cotton in and choke off juice flow ?? Sure, Can you put too LITTLE and have some issues ? Sure. It’s hard to explain the RIGHT amount of cotton (or whatever you wick with), but I fluff and stuff, never PACK the cotton into the deck. Maybe that’s why my lazy ass loves the verticals soo much, with only ONE tail to worry about. With 3mm ID coils, and the associated thickness of cotton that fits in, I cut the end of the tails about even with the outer edge of the deck, then fluff and spread (fan out) the tails, then gently place in the deck, covering all 4 juice holes. That’s about it.
Just be advised if you have too MUCH cotton packed in there, you could experience a dry hit, BUT, super easy to resolve. Close OFF the airflow totally, give it a good pull (suck) or two, and you should see air bubbles floating up, kinda like force priming it, open air flow back up, and vape on.
Send us some pics once you get your V2, so we can all be on the same page with the model you have.
