    Default New 3.5ml DCT Tank Cartomizer not working with Chuck

    I decided to try a tank setup for my Chuck, thinking the stainless MAP tank sounded great but wanted to try a tank first before laying out 50 bucks for something that might not work. Off I went to my local vape shop and got a 3.5ml DCT Tank Cartomizer. They will not screw into my 510 connector on Chuck, so I got a 510 to 510 extension. Nothing. The tank will not fire up at all with my Chuck, but works like a dream on a 5v box mod. What am I doing wrong? I use my Chuck with two UltraFire ICR 123A 3.7v batteries. Too much? Would really love to use the tank with Chuck!

    Here are the specs:

    Newest Smok Tech DCT Cartomizer.

    Available in Clear and Smokey.

    1.5 ohm +/- 0.20 ohm.

    Holds approximately 3.5ml and 6.0ml of liquid.

    Outstanding vapor - great flavor taste.

    Threaded for any 510 power source.

    Requires a minimum 450mAh power source.

    Suitable for all 3.7 volt to 7 volt devices.

    Contents:

    1 - 3.5ml or 6ml Tank with one dual coil punched cartomizer

    1 - Drip tip.

    Extra pre-punched cartomizers sold separately.

    These are specially made for tank mods with the new flanged bottom. The punched hole is very small but effective.

    The connector on the Chuck may not be making contact with the adapter. You can move the center pin on the adapter down a bit to see if it will make contact with your Chuck connector. Hope that works for you.

    Try it with an 18650 battery. Odds are its tripping the protection circuits with the stacked batteries.

    Yep, I switched from CR123s to an 18650 and it fired up. I was kind of wondering if it was shorting out. When I use a VV box mod and crank it up, the tanks won't work either. Thanks!

    I have an 18650 in my Chuck, but jeez that gives a weak hit. I've been vaping at least 5V for a very long time and it's disappointing to kick it down a few notches. Can I use something other than a dual core atty with my tanks and would that make a difference so I could use my CR123s? Every time I graduate to a new component, it's a crash course in learning all over again. Good thing we're all around to share info, huh?

    You can get 4.8V batts in 18650 size: 4.8v 18650 Batts

    That's what I use in my Chuck now, and it's great. Better than the 3.7V, lasts longer (and is less harsh) than 2 stacked 3V's. The only annoying thing is that the charger light stays red, doesn't turn green when the batt is charged. But 3 hours is enough to charge it, and it lasts longer than that.
    gnatx and thebat1 like this.
