    Exclamation Help! I hate my Smoktech SiD

    So I have a K101 that I use for dripping exclusively and love it when I feel like dripping and bought a SiD just as a quick/fairly inexpensive upgrade for my eGo's. I hate it. The SiD. I have tried adjusting the voltage, wattage....my tank is a Protank II and it has a super tight draw and spits a lot. If it is too loose or too tight, it doesn't fire at all. There is little throat hit and very little vapor production regardless of what juice I use. What am I doing wrong? What is that sweet spot setting I might be looking for? I am ready to just suck up my losses and toss it in a drawer. Help!

    I'll take it!!

    Some items work for some, not others..?
    Maybe try a different ohm coil in the PTII?

    My PT2 works fine with mine. Try to pull the center pin up a mm, very gently. My PT2 could screw down another turn if not more where I use it and the airflow is fine, undrilled.

    Thanks guys! I actually swapped out the battery to the original that came with it (samsung) and also changed out the coil....took it off VV mode and switched to wattage...shazam...good draw, good cloud and strong flavor. The SiD is now saved from banishment!

    I just picked up 2 smoktech sid's on sale at my local Vape shop (Mr E's) yesterday...and I love them. It's a toss up on which is my favorite mod between the vamo 3 or the SID...coming in a close 3rd is my sigelei telescoping mod. I think they are all good mods and worth the money.

    Its an awesome mod. It's my first and not my last but so far I like it. I use different voltage settings for different juices and different wattage settings for different juices. There's no one sweet spot with my SiD.

    Glad you figured it out!

    I have a SiD and love it.
    I only ever used VW. I vape around 8w. I'm on RTAs and RDAs now, but i put a micro coil in my mpt2 and it worked like a champ!
    I use efest IMR 2Ah batteries. They seem to do the trick! they seem to last me about 8 hours or so. I have 4 of them in a Intellicharger i4.

    I should be getting my backup SiD in the mail tomorrow.

    As far as the pin issue, you will know you have a problem when the resistance reads 999 or low load on a known good coil. check my blog post for my fix for the bad pin
