    How do you recoil and change the resistance?

    There are a couple of vids on Youtube that show a V1 being recoiled and rewicked. One includes changing the wick with cotton Vision Vivi Nova, Part 2 - Changing Wick (COTTON) & Final Impressions - YouTube and then this one. Vision Vivi Nova Review - YouTube

    The V2 is done the same way. The first video is a lot closer look than the second one.

    I received my V2 Vivi about a week ago, and it's the first of many I've tried that doesn't leak at all (only one week, so the jury is still deciding) vapes good, tastes good, very easy to fill, doesn't flood a carto once a day. Took it for gimmicky when it was first released, pleasantly surprised with this rev, glad I waited.

    Different strokes, but... I only have a couple of the version 1 Vivi Novas and even with their several shortcomings I've enjoyed them (at a regulated 3.7 volts). The coils *are* replaceable for around $2.50 each, or (I'm told) rebuildable for much less. I was impressed with the design when I saw them on the Website, and no less so when my order came in. The QC issues presented themselves & of course I hoped they'd be ironed out quickly; can't wait to try a vers. 2 & see how well they've done in such a short time.

    I've had zero leaks. My PV fell from my shirt pocket today & landed on the drip tip hard enough to dent the top of the battery inside the PV, causing it to fail to reach its connection point - but it did not damage the Vivi at all. It's taken a few such tumbles before but this may have been the first on a hard tile floor (grocery store). Oh, and I see the price has come down on the vers. 2... now that's nice!

    The main thing though is, everybody's having a good time - So - Happy Vaping!

    Yep it's fine... almost scared the gray outta my beard though! Picked it up & it wouldn't turn back on... had one o' those "O,S!" moments & decided to check out so I could get back to the car to inspect the damage. Nice little dimple in the top of that battery but otherwise everything's fine.

    Valuable lesson learned: E-Power - shirt pocket. VTube - jeans pocket - at least unless/until I make a holster for it. Also, I gotta order some spare (Panasonic) batteries *tonight*! (I think I could make the dinged one work but don't like the idea of it, and besides, I've got the E-Power for a backup.)

    Thanks guys. Can't wait to try the New Vivi Nova since it use wick instead of coil (carto). It's hard to find wick based tank, most of the tank is coil. Did I get it right?

    Anyway, anyone tried the Torpedo Tank from Vapor Age? I wanted so bad to get my hands on it but it out of stock.
    I read from the other thread that tank is almost perfect. Anyone can share their experience would be great.
    Thanks

    The Vivi is an "atomizer tank". Most common tanks are "cartomizer tanks".

    Most of the other lower priced atomizer tanks rely on the guts from a CE2 clearomizer. It's hard to find one that uses it's own atomizer and still works well. There are some for the eGo, but no high capacity ones for other 510 devices that I know of, other than the really expensive rebuildable ones like the Odysseus.

    I just went there and it's showing in stock. You might want to grab one. It looks pretty sweet. I change flavors a lot though, so it would cost me a fortune to get enough of them. They ain't cheap, but they do look quality.
