If you were blindfold and took a toke from this tank you would say… It’s a dripper. Tanks has arrived people. This tank is the best I own. Some say it’s hard to build but I don’t think they understand the innovations SMOK has made on this tank. Very easy to build and wick. Four large juice that could wick molasses.
It has a 2 post design… Like the Crown Tank it has raised shoulders on the post. All you do is back the screw out a bit and insert the wires and tighten. It’s designed to pin the wires under the screw head… no broken wires this way.
I recommend a 2.5 to 3.0 ml. ID… yep it will fit. It’s bigger than it looks. That’s why I don’t understand why some people say it’s hard to build. This big ID gives room for plenty of extra cotton… and you will need it to clog those huge juice channels.
Once it’s wicked fluff those tails a wet your cotton. I don’t trim dry cotton because you don’t know if you length is right until you get it to lie down.
Everybody has a method for wicking… here’s mine. Once I wet my cotton I lay it over the juice channels. I like just a little in the channels without it packing it in. IMO packing slows the juice flow causing dry hits. This method has always worked for me. As long as the entire channel is covered I get no leaks and my juice flow free.
At this point I cap it and wet my cotton good and pulse it a bit. I make sure sure there are no shorts before I installed the tank and fill it.
Usually by the time I assemble and fill my tank, my coil is cool enough to set the resistance for my TC mod. Once it’s set then it’s happy vaping.
This my method that works everytime for me. I hope this will help if you run into trouble. Again this tank surpasses all I own for flavor and vapor production. You will hear a lot about this tank system. There will be 6 to 8 different set ups for this tank system. I’m sure there is a set up that will suit your needs.
