Which battery connector are you using w/ your mod??

The new style attys are not tight but do not have the same vapor production. They do not have the 4 bleed holes and the threads not starting until well down in the atty appears to be the only diff. Wish you had better luck w/ your 201s.
Well no package in the mail today, so it looks like Saturday at least before I get a new kit.
I threw my back out today and took a couple of really strong muscle relaxers on an empty stomach so any coments about the M201 I have now will probably have to wait till tomorrow when I'm a little more energetic.
I should have remembered to eat first.

This allows for airflow with all the different types of m201 attys. I think the airflow is perfect with the altsmoke adapter. I don;t know if they still have it on hand but get their 901 to 801/m201 adapters. You can then use it with mods or kr808d batteries....both ways they perform much better than m201 batteries.

As far as the m201 atty is concerned the TV tobacco is a killer. The problem with buying anything except for Dekang liquid is that the manufacturers design their devices around dekang liquid. Everytime I have tried other liquids I end up regretting it. But nothing has killed attys like the TV tobacco. My attys went from lasting 3-5 weeks to 3-5 days. I vape about 4ml of liquid a day.
I had ordered five M201 stainless steel attys a couple of months ago. After just breaking out my fourth atty a few days ago, I noticed this one was different from the last three I'd gone through. First difference is the exterior. This fourth atty is shinier and smoother, whereas the previous three were more matte.
With the shiny one, the threads are indeed more recessed and it only takes a turn and a half to attach to the battery. The matte ones' threads start much closer to the end of the atty and take about 3 turns to attach to the battery. Although the lifespan of the matte ones were a bit sporadic (one lasting a week, another a week and a half and the third, over a month), I liked the vapor production and flavor of these over the shiny one I'm using now, which floods easily and is still turning my liquid dark brown (btw, my diy liquid isn't particularly thick). This is a pain because now I have to constantly blow out the atty and rinse out the carts, rather than just topping off. It's only been a few days so I can't assess the lifespan of the shiny atty, but I wonder if this formation of dark liquid is due to the breaking in period (although I never had this issue with the matte ones).
Here's a pic of the two styles. I tried to get the best shot of the exterior and the threads. The one on the left is the shiny version and the one on the right is the matte version. Oh, and you can't really tell from the pic, but about 3/8 inch from the battery-end, I can see and feel a definite bump all the way around the atty. Anyhoo, my question is which one is the old style atty and which is the new? I need to order more attys soon but I may just resign myself to the M401, which I'm very happy with, if the shiny ones are the newer, but inferior attys.
Lalesa what may be wrong is there may be some primer dried in your attys.
Mine did the same thing untill all of the primer was gone even turning my ry4 a wierd reddish brown color in the carts.
The best way i've found to clean mine is to get a small pot and fill with water and heat on the stove untill it just starts to boil.
Then I turn it down untill just below simmering and using a long pair of tweezers swish the atty around for about 10 seconds, rinse in warm water at the sink and blow out from both ends when it cools enough, repeating 4 or 5 times untill clean and blow out real good with a paper towel in it to dry. then I draw on the atty attached to the battery for about 3 or 4 seconds to do a dry burn. Reprime and it should vape right.
