    Im in dire need of some new heads for my protanks the 5 pack I bought sucks- and tainting all my juice. I have tried 3 new ones today. I seem to prefer a low resistance and these r 2.5 can't seem to get the voltage right. I think 2.2 would be good? I think its the SID mod I'm using. Can't wait to get my Provari. Hope it makes a difference!! Feeling frustrated:blink: I know people say RBA way to go but I just want to put things on and go. To much fidgeting for me? Where do you buy your heads from. Could they be duds or is 2.2 better?

    I use Protanks on my SID just fine. I prefer a 2.2 coil set to
    9 watts or so. Check for the resistance of the heads and adjust accordingly. The reason why I don't buy a Provari is that it doesn't do variable wattage. And I don't know why heads would ruin juice.

    I'm not sure what the point of your post is, but if you try 4.2-4.4 Volts you should be okay. If it's too warm, cut the voltage down or use a longer mouthpiece. You didn't say which juices you use but eventually your coil will gunk up. You can try soaking them but a dry burn is best. Pry the air tube off with the rubber seal, take off any loose flavor wicks and press the fire button for 5 seconds until you see the greyish-white ash form on the coil. Blow off the ash and keep firing until your coils start to glow. Put the flavor wicks back on, or leave one or all of them off if you prefer. Press fit the air tube back in and push down the rubber seal. You should be good to go.

    You can wind your own coils and replace them very easily. With just one box of 5 replacement coils you can rotate them, replacing coils as you go. all you need is some 30 gauge Kanthal and some silica wick.

    Don't have a link but try re-wicking with plain old cotton ball stuff, you boil the cotton, dry, make a thread of it, lay over your coil, trim, and done........that's the short version, isn't hard, someone has got to have a video link somewhere!:blink:

    Thinking my SID has voltage inaccuracy problems. Because I follow the chart on setting voltage based on my resistance reading and still having issues.

    sometimes it's personal choice,,,,or the juice makes a difference,,,everyone says take the Ohms and add 2 to get the best volts,,,,,

    2.4 ohms +2 would be about 4.4 volts,,,,,,,,

    I can't go that high, it just tastes burnt on my peach juice,,,,,

    now my green apple,,,,,,,,yep, no problems going that high.

    how's your stock of peroxide? I mean alcohol, wipe the battery and tank threads with it..... that should help the connection. I prefer 1.8 but have had no real issues with higher resistance on a variable device . most variable devices will adjust to provide the same vape regardless of the resistance. 9 watts is a round general wattage, but you may fine more or less wattage works better for your tastes / senses

    2.4 ohm at 9 watts = 4.64758 volts
    2.2 ohm at 9 watts = 4.44972 volts
    2.0 ohm at 9 watts = 4.24264 volts
    1.8 ohm at 9 watts = 4.02492 volts

    Once you burn on a coil, you may not even be able to get rid of the burnt taste with a good cleaning.
    You need to figure out WHY you're getting that burn in the first place - you shouldn't, but it may actually be WORSE with lower resistance.

    I found that I would get "dry hits" and then burning on a ProTank because not enough juice got to the coil. I fixed this by pulling the air stem off the coil/head, and with tweezers, removing about 1/2 of the wick that lies across the top. Look for "remove flavor wick on ProTank" here or on YouTube to see exactly how to do this. Now I'm happy with my ProTanks...
    (and I use 2 ohm coils at 4 volts all the time).

    That sounds about right , That's what I use on that type coil .
    Do you have one of those business cards with the volt settings on the back ?
    works like a champ for me !
