    Chim, got a few questions for you....

    Can you see through the airwick tube?
    Is the connector (post) on the OMG dry?

    Now...on my video review of the OMG for some reason (have no idea why) the OMG strangely doesn't like some Cartos. I still cannot get mine to work with one of the 3.5ml tanks. It makes no sense whatsoever since both Cartomizers in the tanks are identical. I was able to get it to work a few times briefly by drawing on it while unscrewing it and angle the tank a little.

    So as long as the carto and OMG connector posts are dry and you can see through the air tube try this. Screw the tank on and try taking a draw on it as you slowly unscrew the tank.

    I think this has a lot to do with the OMG and probably very little to do with you.

    Thanks for replying Snow...
    All is dry. I put adapter on, put Cool Cart on and it works great. On the tank, I can't see through the airwick tube. I look through both ends and can't see through it at all. Even use flashlight. When I look down the end where the dt is, I can see into the airwick tube but not through it. (at either end.) I can take a few hits but it gurgles, snaps, crackles, pops and then begins leaking. I take tank off, turn it upside down. Put paper towel over dt and take hard draws in hopes to clear it out. Put back on OMG Mod and it works for a bit and does the same thing. There's also condensation inside the clear dt. Is that normal? I'm thinking it is...

    The condensation is perfectly normal, you just never see it with other DTs. Like I said, for whatever reason the OMG is finicky.

    Do you have a long Paper clip? If so straighten it out and insert it all the way through the air tube. Then check the air tube to see if it's clear...then give it another shot. Let me know what happens....

    Just to add: The gurgle and what not....isn't normal, but this could a combination of flooding and/or it just not working on the OMG. Did you see my vid on the OMG by chance?

    I took the inner cartomizer out and pulled the batting out just to see what is causing the burnt taste. Nothing looked burnt. I think juices with higher PG ratios do not do well with the Dual Coil Tank.. 50% VG or 70/30 seem to wick better and wont flood compared to thinner juice.
