    Default RM2 / RBA 2.0 / Reomizer 2 Air Adjustment Tutorial

    This is so significant, it requires a thread of its own

    The relationship of the air hole to the coil significantly affects performance on the RM2. Properly adjusted, you will have a smooth and flavorful vape with copious clouds of warm vapor. Improperly adjusted, and your vape is going to be so-so to downright anemic - It doesn't matter what kind of coil and wick setup your running. This is nothing new, It's fairly common knowledge to most folks using RBA's, but I ignored it on my RM2s until now. The reason being, that the cap / top of this RBA screws on. Most of us (me included) just screw it on and assume that the airhole is aligned with the coil. Not the case my friend. Between my two RM2s, one was very close to the coil, one was over by the tail of the wick (talk about a weak vape). But theres good news. Below, There is a simple, detailed method to tune yours so it'll vape at its maximum potential - like the rockstar it is.

    Step 1: Screw the atomizer on the REO without a drip tip. Look down thru the top. See the coil? ok, You need the coil to be pointing UP when In your normal firing / hitting position ( when you bring it up to your mouth). If its not, turn it so it is. If you cant align it without excessive force (or its too loose) use the oring that came with the RBA by unscrewing the base and placing it in the drip well to achieve this. If that oring is not thick enough, I use one from a grand bottle cap. I use an oring with all RBA's to prevent over tightening to get proper alignment. Worst case scenario, if there's no way to turn it so its pointing up when in your normal firing position, adapt to a new firing position

    Step 2: Now look at the cap. Is the airhole DIRECTLY in front of the coil or within a few degrees of it? If not, use an oring (the size that comes with the RBA) between the cap and the base to achieve this. I had to use 2 in this location.

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words....and it's true. Great picture showing the orientation (what you mean by "up") and the o-ring between the cap and the base. You mentioned that the o-ring that fits in the bottle cap can be used for this, but I can't seem to stretch that o-ring enough to get it around the base of the atty. Hmmmmm.

    Hey Jan! My bad, the Orings from the RM2 work in the cap to base application. The Orings from a REO grand bottle cap work in the base to juice well application (if you can't achieve alignment with an RM2 oring). I just edited my OP to clarify.

    I just found a use for the clear orings that held the wicks in place for shipping the ce2,ce5 replacement heads. Glad I didn't toss them. 2 of them have things aligned well.

    Nice work, Russ!

    the o-rings on the RM2 are unnecessary if you put the coil over the squonk hole side Rob already placed the airhole in the right place

    Okay, got it. Thanks, Russ. That helps.

    the only placement you should worry about is the air hole on the top so juice dont leak out when you tip it to take a hit

    For some of us, pointing the coil and the air hole exactly opposite of the fire button is not possible Mine is about 60 degrees before where it should be. If I turn it back 300 degrees to be in the right position, the atomizer doesn't make a connection with the mod. Still works wonderfully though, just need to watch fingers for hot steam coming out of the hole occasionally.

    In this case, I would adjust my hitting style so the airhole pointed up. In other words, it's not important for the fire button to point down but it is important for your coil / airhole to point up when you hit.

    I used to think that too... Until I aligned the airhole with the coil and realized the major improvement

    Those two Orings on mine would beg to differ my man

    My airhole was about 90 degrees to the left of the coil (almost directly in front of the post opposite the squonk hole )
