    I'll be interested to see what you think of the Orchid. I've been thinking about getting one. I just got the Plume Veil and loving it.

    I tried them, threw them in the juice cupboard, and haven't seen them since.
    Big letdown for me .. My taste buds think I DIY better juice.
    Lurker signing out again ..love this thread
    I listened to the hype too, not always a good thing. No Boba's but do have GJ and a couple of others from AVE. Don't really like any of them, especially not GJ, but if I had to pick one the Christy's Capp is doable.

    HHV also has a purity line for those seeking all VG. I'm not sure about the flavor extraction part tho, but I think they use alcohol extraction. (I could have easily unlearned this like Loop!)
    Never tried the DF, but just about everything else I have tried from HHV was doable, 2 or 3 would be easy ADV's. Thanks for the reminder about Heather.

    Ahlusion has been on my bucket list for a long time, always seems to be something else plugged in above them though. Some day...

    The AFC ring's position is stabilised from the 510 adapter by design. The same happens when the Heron is screwed into the Paps tubes. You have to unscrew the Heron by half a turn, from the 510 adapter or the tube in order to turn the AFC ring. We designed in that way, because most people have a constant draw preference, while a loose AFC ring would be quite annoying.



    This happens mostly due to more or less fluff than is required. Too thin and it can't hold the juice, too condensed and floods after a while, so spread it evenly to have a uniform density with a needle or the fork. Try with a strip of fluff with 2-2,5" length and 0,6" height. Your cotton edges have to be short and be sure the fluff is touching the inner walls of the tube without any gaps.
    OK shorting issue sorted.
    I didn't change much - just paid a bit more attention to what immediately "hit me" when I got up this morning. I don't know if this really was the reason - but just making sure that there was no excess wire (from the coil) sticking out from the positive post that "might" touch the topper. I just wound the coil wire a little further round the post before cutting it. Whether this was the reason for the previous shorts? I don't know?.. But no short this morning anyway.
    Still getting a bit of gurgling though. I'll press on with slightly more/less filler until that too gets sorted.
    So - thanks to all for suggestion and thoughts on this...

    Hi All,

    I ran across an interesting issue the other night and would like some input. I have a Paps V3 (lux) as well as the 18650 SS tube and also recently acquired a TOBH Atty V2.5. My first build on the TOBh was around .5 and had it sitting on the Paps with a fully charged Sony VCT4 and once i start pulsing and pinching the coils the button would get hot. I checked for shorts on my ohm reader and nothing came up, tightened down my post screws... nothing.

    I also have a Raiju RDA, mirrored the build and it works great on the paps. I then took the TOBH and used it with another mod (telescopic nickel plated copper positive pin) and it works like a charm..

    Is it possible that this is an issue in the Gpin and the paps was not meant for sub ohming?

    Any help is welcome and appreciated.

    This has been discussed here over and over. GP does not condone or support sub ohms. The GPin is not designed to handle the loads.

    This.

    Perseas says that the GPin is not designed for sub-ohm builds, so I try to keep my builds above 1 Ohm for the most part. Now having said that, I have run .6-.8 Ohm builds on my paps and the GPin handled it just fine, but I don't make a habit out of it as GP does not recommend it....

    The only time I had a button get hot on my Paps was when I had a dead short in one of my Herons....so I suspect you may have had a short somewhere along the way....

    Hi buddy, our devices are not designed for sub ohm use, only the GP PAPS X can handle that load and I say that with the disclaimer that we don't endorse the sub ohm coils to be used in conjunction with our devices.

    Well, I'll give you some "out on your own" feed back. I didn't know the Gpin wasn't designed, nor is supported for sub ohming, but i do it on my v3 18500, .40-.50ohms with an aw imr 18490. I haven't experienced the button getting hot or warm at all, but the atty and top cap area can get extremely hot if i'm chain vaping or playing around with clouds. I did read that the recommended battery is an AW IMR, not a VTC, which is why it probably heats up like crazy under heavy load. Now, i do have an 18650 tube for the v3 and I just tried it with the aforementioned build and a vtc4 and it seemed fine over here. However, now that I know the pin cant handle that type of load, i'll lift up the resistance on my builds with the v3.
