    I wouldn't... If too tight get a Hastur where you can change the airhole via air inserts

    It did for me in the first day, first build was ok but in the second build I tried to put slightly more cotton and it gurgles, I thought more cotton makes it better. When I open the top cap I see a lot of bubbles so it sucks liquid quickly and gurgles later. The taste is amazing, just need to figure out why my first build was better. What I consider a cons though is the drip tip, a lot of liquid was accumulating under it and getting to my mouth, after changing to another drip tip it is ok now. It does not take 2ml, I would say 1.7ml. When refilling, the top cap and the top of the atomizer (where the cap sits) is always very wet, hard to refill without having dirty hands.

    I just tried to insert my 1.5mm coil tool and it would barely not fit. I believe that 1.4 is accurate and I think I read 1.4 somewhere also when it first came out.

    Got the mini in the mail today. Really nice atty, easy to build, easy to fill and great flavor! Too tight a draw for my taste. However, i didnt buy it for me i bought it for my wife and she will love it! She still laments the demise of her final KF lite!!!

    So, above all I found cons is leak when closing the top cap after refill, is there anybody here can confirm that if we thread 1 turn then turn upside down atty then we closed full top cap cant avoid the leak?

    I've tried this a few times and still get leaking. Have just resorted to unscrewing from the bottom altogether to refill

    Got this atomizer delivered to me today from fasttech ($26.09 with MAP code), man is it awesome! Small, compact, but powerful. The flavor is great in my opinion, better than my original Berserker with the 4.5ml extension, and it's easy to build and bottom fill.

    I managed to broke the glass tube when I was putting it on the chimney. It just cracked a bit somehow, that's how unlucky I am haha :D but I use the Ultem tube and it works just as good.

    I use the provided fused clapton coil, I think it's Ni80, not sure. Size is 2.5mmID, 5 wraps, works great at 15-17W for me. Has anybody else tried this coil in their Mini, what's you favorite build ?

    Some SS and Black ones that I ordered on Jan. 28th...are on the slow boat now headed to Miami. 2 more in Gold ordered at the same time, were supposedly shipped Thursday night. Last night their CS rep said they should be out of China before everything shuts down for CNY tomorrow. I'll believe that though when I see it in Tracking! Until I get any of them I'll just keep using the 24mm ones, which I love anyway.

    The small o-ring under the top cap is tearing apart and I believe there is no spare in the spare bag. Anybody has replaced this already? Thanks

    I have the 24mm Beserker and it's a flavor beast. So far, no problems, no leaks. I can see where the top cap o-ring could be a problem with constant refilling. Mine had a plastic bag with a screwdriver, o-rings that look like they'd fit the top cap and glass tube insert, and o-rings for the drip tip. Looks like all o-rings are in my box.

    That said, I haven't had to replace anything yet.

    TT, I always pay attention to your posts because you seem to prefer to vape EXACTLY the way I do. If you like it, I will like it!

    So no love for the fused claptons coils that come with it ? I use it with spaced wraps in my Mini (5 wraps, 2.5mm diameter), I love these coils.

    Anyway, I must say I'm very satisfied with this atomizer after 2 weeks of using it, flavor is excellent imo, draw is excellent (tight, but not too tight), I use the third or fourth hole, - the top fill works with no leaking if you properly wick (a bit more cotton in the holes, but don't cram it in with pressure, just gently place it in).
    Also, I placed a thinner o-ring on the top cap because I think that can help with leaking, but you can remove it all together as well, it works.

    One bad thing I noticed on mine is that the coil sometimes can "go dry", like it stops wicking for some reason, but then I just open the top cap a bit until I see bubbles coming up, and then it's okay.
    It's possible to bottom fill, but it's harder than on the bigger 24mm Berserker, because there's less space between the glass and the chimney.
    This is maybe one of the best MTL atomizers in the recent years.

    I've been using claptons this week. I have some ss316L Clapton wire that sounds like it's the same as Vandy Vape's superfine stuff. 5.5 wraps gets me at about 0.3 ohms. It has a noticable improvement in flavor (not that the mini B needs it) with slightly less juice consumption.
    The bonus for me is that the increased mass of the coil means it plays nice with the Swag's TC mode.

    Trying: remove the top cap oring, upside down atty and then closed complety, tight wick, etc etc etc. And yes, I cant avoid leaking, Bottom fill the only thing refill work without leaking or gurgling.

    @rifky - I just bottom fill all my Berserkers, full size and minis, all the time. You have to completely remove a part anyway, to refill either way. Never have any gurgling nor leaking with BF, and it lets me check out my coil and wick each time I refill. :thumbs:

    @ToolmanTexas - I bought the same mod, but in the turquoise color, and am using a Zerker Mini on it! But, you must've edited out your buttons, charge port, and LED screen on your pic. :)
