So I decided I should give the Bellus one more shot to not dump 5+ml of juice on me every other fill. So, I rebuilt it with the twisted 4 strings of 30ga Ti that I used for my Crown and stuffed it with as much hemp as I could.
It leaked on me the first couple of fills, but if I fill it with the air shut off and flip it upside down as soon as I tighten the cap, then open the AFC while upside down it doesn’t leak.
This thing is blowing bigger clouds than mu dual 24ga build in my TFV4. The taste is there too. I don’t know how long I can keep it from leaking or stand the Nazi-scripted fill procedure, but it’s a little redemption…of course the deck is so crazy small you can’t build anything at a high enough resistance that my Xcube will even fire, but the cube is basically just a build platform for me now.
Alright damn it. You know how a way sub-ohm build spits and splatters? Ok, well have you seen the highly featured deck of the bellus? Ok, add to that between the AFC ring and coils you have much additional area on which juice can accumulate. So now when I flip it over a good half ml trickles out of the chimney.
that said, this thing is vaping like a frigging beast. It has a good deal more juice capacity than the TFV4 too. As built, in a side by side for flavor and cloud production I’m going with the Bellus. It’s also a cooler vape.
So ergonomically it’s a disaster but she’s a nice vape if you don’t mind carrying around a towel to dry off with once in awhile.
Strange, the only time it leaked on me was when I forgot to close the air holes. I get a tiny bit of condensation at most. I’m with @Pro_Vapes though when it comes to flavour it is a disappointment. I have found a good purpose for it though, I can use it for juices that are a little too much in the flavour department. Instead of ditching them or diluting them, I will put them in the Bellus, problem solved
I’m calling the Ohmega a bad penny. Just found out a friend is sending me one. I said thanks buddy. But didn’t have the heart to tell him I had one and didn’t like it much. Well I suppose now I’ll give it another chance. Mine and PVs tastes are so much alike that I have to figure it out
I rather like the Bellus. The top filling feature has never worked for me (splooge out the air intake) but no matter, most of my tanks bottom fill anyway. As long as you have proper wicking techniques, it vapes pretty much like any old dripper.
Every atomizer has it’s quirks. We just have to figure out how to work around them.
I’ve wanted to throw a few atomizers through the closest wall! But, I just set it aside and come back to it a week or so later with refreshed incentive to make it work for me. There has only been one atomizer I’ve actually thrown in the garbage can with quite a few expletives in the process; some atomizers don’t live up to the hype!
Yeah, I think my “leaking” on this one is just a little trickle into the chimney from the fill holes when using blunted tipped bottles. I may drill one of the fill holes, but for now, my first act is to dump out the chimney after screwing on the cap and leakage afterward is minimal…same as anything else.
