    So I have been switching the stock heads that come with my protank every fill. This is probably the 3rd or 4th refill on this head, and the draw went from airy to tight... Is something going on? im using 50/50 and have been since I bought my Protank. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this...

    did you swap an evod head in there? my evod heads in the protank are significantly tighter than the protank head.

    every fill seems kind of expensive

    anyhow, there are videos on youtube which explain how to full take the heads apart

    you likely need to remove one or more of the flavor wicks, these are wicks that are not spun into the coil but sit on top of it...all you need is a little tweezer to get it out but its kind of impossible for me to explain the process here

    google "cleaning the kanger pro tank" there are several you tube videos...even if you dont want to clean the head, you will want to get one of the flavor wicks out of there

    ahh ok that makes sense

    anyhow, the heads dont last forever, i do think you should try cleaning them...its no very hard to do once you've done it a time or two...take five minutes or so, you'll get to know the inner workings too so when you have a tight draw you can make adjustments

    maybe the atomizer is gunked up now. I replace them regularly with brand spanking new (rebuilds)

    What are you using them on? Sometimes on a Vamo, which has fairly deep threading, tightening a KPT fully will close off the intake holes. Can you loosen up the draw by unscrewing the KPT 1/4 turn?

    Also, alot of us haven't had the greatest experience with the heads that come with the KPT. If you bought some extra heads, the build quality seems to be improved on replacement heads. Save your stock heads for rebuilding. Might just be time to clean them out and dry burn them.

    Even if the head was filthy I'm not sure that would cause the draw to tighten up like that unless it was so bad it solidified. Are you using 2 different bases? One of my Protanks came with a base that did not have the air channels machined into it so there was pretty much no draw at all. Like sucking on your thumb kind of draw.

    Well I take it out, and run it under warm water until the wick is white again. Should I be doing more? Eventually I want to Rebuild them both so I dont need to BUY more heads.

    I have never used a factory build head so I can't say. I replace mine so often the don't get a chance to get gunked up.

    Might want to check your atty connection too.. rotank bad about the atty loosening up while your working with the heads.. Either that or you may need to clean/replace the heads you have.... 3rd or 4th fill , don't know how many draws or days you've been through with that but attys usually have a life-span 10-14 days if your lucky and heads require proper cleaning to function depending on your rate of vaping.

    Vape Nerd has the best advice .... Check out some of the youtube K-pro / T3 cleaning and build videos and that should explain all you need to know about taking care of your tanks..:evil:

    Im assuming A dry burn wouldnt hurt it, I may try that. Its just odd that only this fill is tight

    Not really like Im complaining, because a tighter draw is kinda nice. I just want to make sure Im not doing something wrong

    Dry burn may help... but I would check the center tube to see if you have a lot of fluid fill before you do that... That can cause a tight draw as well but if you dry burn with a filled tube .. your going to end of creating a bad flavor in the atty and have to replace it if cleaning won't remove bad flavor.. Just IMHO!!

    Hey Fish, how are ya, 405 vaperz on 89th and walker has replacement heads (not sure they are real kanger, don't have the extra flavor wicks) but they work well. Been using them since the originals did the same on my protank.
