    If you rebuild these dual coils please let me know how that goes. I haven't found any info on a rebuild for these yet. I want to take a crack at it. Not til I get some info first though.

    I got a learning curve ahead of me. Gotta learn how to make a coil for my nemi and mini pt2 first but it's only a matter of time. I'll keep you posted as long as I don't blow anything up

    The one vid I saw where the pt 3 coils was disassembled looked like rebuilding might be an issue. The person had to break it to get to the actual coil wires. I'm holding off on getting a 3 until i more info is out on it.

    Exactly.

    There are usually two distinct types of consumers when it comes to issues like this. The first type is the consumer who PREFERS to get a product as soon as it comes out. The benefits are having it first, and enjoying being one of the first to try out a new toy. The second category, of which I've always been in, is the consumer who much more prefers to sit and wait for a product to be out a good while first. The benefits of this are being able to see a plentiful array of reviews, and letting OTHER people discover the problems so that I can make an educated decision as to whether or not those problems are something I'm willing to look past.

    E-cig products are one of those things, in my opinion, that are even MORE SO important for people like me to WAIT, WAIT, and then WAIT some more.....because of how fickle they can be.

    I bought a pro tank 1 LONG after it came out based on reviews, and I'm glad I did. However, I waited on the PT2, and STILL was disappointed. It performs terribly for me.

    I'm going to pass on the PT3. I dislike the PT2 so much, that it would take a miracle to ever order a pro tank again. Especially now, with so many great similar alternatives that IMO work better.

    and I bought the pt2 long after it came out and I loved it! when I saw the pt3 was out I had to buy one. it is pretty nice so far sucks the life outta my batteries(waiting on my mod to get here) but pretty nice. btw I don't usually buy something when it is first released.

    Me either. Didn't like the iClear 30 and liked my PT2 minis so I figured the PT3 would be nice. Does seem to caramelize juice pretty quickly so I gotta clean after every tank.
