    I'm discovering that it's a science to learn the sweet spot while using the Evod.

    Each juice is different and requires its own tweaking. Although the 3.7V battery that comes with the Evod is the perfect battery for the product, getting a VV battery is simply a must if you want to experience juices the way they are meant to be experienced. By adjusting the VV ever so slightly up and down while vaping, you can find what the perfect voltage for that particular juice is, and you can make a note of it so that you can adjust it accordingly the next time you fill your tank with the same juice. Right now I'm just keeping that information at the top of my head but eventually I will probably keep a little diary of notes to refer to as I collect a wider selection of juices from various vendors.

    I've also found that the third wick in the Evod is completely useless. All it does is make it harder for the juice to get to the coil. Although this is especially true with high VP ratio juices, I've found it to be true to a certain extent with all juices I've tried—it simply takes too much time for the coilwick to get saturated, too many dry hits, too much chance of burning if you overuse it. Taking one of the flavor wicks out is extremely simple and if you're careful, it can even be done with a pair of tweezers without even taking the head apart. With the third wick out of there the flavor and vape production doubles, and if it is a thin juice you can simply turn down the voltage a little.

    I'm also experimenting with different ohms but have not had the opportunity to compare enough of them to use that in my formulation of the sweet spot, though that will certainly become a factor in the future I'm sure. I've also learned that the only way to switch flavors is to give everything a good cleaning and dry burn first. If you don't do this, it will take forever for the often nasty taste of the two juices combined to disappear, and you actually may never experience the new juice's flavor the way it's meant to be because there will always be remnants of the previous juice, gunked into the wick.

    So there you have my meager attempts at discovering the sweet spots for an Evod. I hope this helps out other newbies like myself avoid a disappointing vape and enjoy the juices the way they are meant to be enjoyed.

    Also, vaping tastes MUCH better after a two inch thick broiled sirloin steak. Just sayin'.

    Dry burns are good, just wait till you put your favorite juice on a brand new coil at that perfect number you are searching for.... nirvana!!!!

    VV makes it simple to adjust voltage but a good old fashioned single voltage PV and almost do the same. Use your thumb on the fire button as the adjustment, pulse it on and off (it's what the electronics actually do) to "adjust" the voltage. You get instantaneous feedback in how your vape tastes, how hot it is. Simply adjust the on/off pulses for a perfect vape, resistance doesn't make near as much difference. :)

    What can I say, I started vaping before all these VV and VW mods were available, "manual pulse width modulation" (M-PWM) was the easy available option. Burnt flavors meant you were holding the fire button too long...:laugh:

    My regular batteries are now basically just a back up for the VV. I find my perfect range is 4 to 4.1 Vs and the other batteries just don't delivery it. I'll try the pulsing thing and see what happens.

    I switched from EVOD to a Mini Protank 2 V2 and every single liquid I use regularly is MUCH better. The EVOD is a great starter but even a sideway step to glass clearomiser and already it's dead in the water. VV will help but buy a Mini Protank 2 which is very cheap and the difference is startling.

    I actually have one on the way in the mail. Got it for about $12 including the shipping from 101Vape. :blink:

    You'll be shocked at the difference, I was. Very smooth vape even on a short draw and the flavours.. .well you'll be noticing flavours you didn't even think were there.

    Yep, I went out today to my local B&M and got a replacement for $8, not bad considering if I ordered one by mail I would have to pay postage and then wait for it.

    My Evod came with only 2 flavor wicks. I have read that some come with 2 and some come with 3.

    I have had them both 2 and 3. It should only matter If you start gurgling. I found myself taking the 3rd out. Then replacing it with 2mm ekowool when I rebuilt it

    Not a bad price, I have seen bad knock-offs go for more than that. Where are you shopping at?

    I've also found various size wick in the heads, some real thin and others much thicker.

    There's a new place that just opened called VAPE a few blocks from where I live in Chicago.

    Nice, I am right below you on a map. I'm in north west Indiana, but work in Chicago Heights. Stay away from the shops in Indiana. There is a good one in Burbank though.
