    My Billow is just not blowing up my skirt. PM me if you want it on the cheap. Lightly used in perfect condition with original packaging and goodies; except the screwdriver which I threw out when it failed.

    Wouldn't go that far. If it was junk I wouldn't be selling it; I'd throw it away. It vapes great. Excellent flavor and chucks monster dense clouds with low ohm dual coil builds. You just can't lay it on its side for very long or it will leak. Great tank for a mech mod or box mod that is kept upright.

    I love my Billow tank!! :p
    This is my 1st RTA, but I've been very impressed.. Gonna get the Nano kit because I usually don't fill it full. It performs pretty much on par with my drippers, huge thick clouds and great flavor! I bought 2 new drippers when I got the Billow, and have pretty much retired all my RDA's now.

    I did have a slight leaking problem, especially if I accidentally left it tilted; a bunch of juice would start flowing out the airholes.
    But I've noticed that this tank seams to work better with RAYON, compared to Japanese Cotton Pads..I've noticed that even the tiny juice seep from the AFC Screws has pretty much stopped when using rayon (plumbers tape installed also), and it doesn't leak when I leave it tilted now!

    I've had the same coils on this tank since about early December and vape about 3mL a day out of it.. I usually run it @ 27.5 Watts: 0.4ohm, dual 26g Microcoils (5/64in).
    :D
    I love this thing. Some of the best money I've spent on vaping and it was only $30! :vapor:

    I have the airflow screws right out of mine with kgd cotton and I have to say I drive for hours with this tilted over in the console of my truck and it never leaks a drop. The longer I own this tank the more curious I get as to all these leaking problems I read about.

    I own one myself and I feel the same way about it, it's JUNK.. It does not live up to its name. Another junk one is the Buddha, a piece of ..... Why build a dual coil atomizer with coils running end to end using the same channels? Why not 4 channels? ... is wrong with those guys that design them? I am not going to blame the Chinese either. Most of the time it is the idiots here in America who send them the blueprint and get it done by lowest bidder. Eccigity is one of them. I am sticking to my Kayfun V4 and my Orchids.

    My billow is not too bad, I took the afc screws out to get more air flow out of it. Doing so the condensation coming out of the bottom holes annoyed the heck out of me. So! I decided to do some tinkering with my billow. I drilled both side and vertical air holes with a 7/64 drill bit and left the threads for the afc screws alone because I wanted to put them back in and seal the bottom. I used a dab of silicon sealant on the afc screws and screwed them back in flushed with the bottom. Left it to dry for a day or so, cleaned it up with hot soapy water and did my usual build, .4ohm dual. With the modifications I did, the air flow is great for me and no more condensation from the afc screws! the silicon I used is the one that's used for fish tanks, I figured if its safe enough for the fish it should be good enough for me. I only needed a tiny bit of it anyway, just enough to coat the threads on the afc screws and seal it.

    I have to say that between my lemo drops and my billow nano I'VE COME TO LIKE THE BILLOW MORE THEN THE LEMOS. Yeah I said it lol.

    The flavor is just as good now... and the billow has more airflow which is what I like.

    Yes it's a more finickier tank though. I treat it the way I'd treat a dripper!

    I highly recommend the nano kit especially for an increase in flavor!

    And my gently used Silver Billow is still for sale. Comes in original packaging with all the goodies except for the junky screwdriver that I tossed out. Anyone?

    Love to trade for a lemo or lemo drop. Hint hint.....

    (In reply to the Trevor Jones tutorial on page 16)

    I don't have a Billow yet, but this video is awesome. Yeah, he does say "K?" a lot, but I like his presentation, I think he's thorough and clean in his build and on his instruction. Looking to grab a billow from Eciggity in about a week, along with the nano package if they're in stock, just for diversity... Just picked up an Arctic last night, but before that I was alternating a dark horse RDA and an Atlantis. The dripper is awesome for home, but I can't drive and drip that thing, nor is it practical to carry around a big bottle of juice in addition to my Sig150w.
    This conversation (and the one on the Lemo) are super helpful, they're the reasons why I joined this forum. Looking forward to contributing whatever Im able in the future...
    Thanks, O

    I am REALLY luvin my Billow. Have to fill slowly with a pin bottle or she floods out the fill hole. Only get a slight leak out the side air holes after filling, but probably cause I fill to the max. But works normally after the first couple of draws & no longer leaks. TONS of smoke and flavor. Mines set up with dual tiger twisted coils (Kanthal A-1 0.8mm x 0.1 mm Flat twisted w/ 30g round A-1 3/32 dia.) w/ jap cotton using 50/50 Cheesecake Torte. The cotton is generously stuffed right to the top of the channels on each side. Air flow screws are backed out all the way flush which causes her to whistle slightly but that tells me she's working perfectly. Running on a Istick 50W @ 30W showing 4.5V & 0.7ohm. Perfect fit on the Istick 50W. A truly fabulous setup!!!

    This sucker ROCKS big time. And that's after luvin the Lemos that my wifey has inherited (which she loves immensely after fixing the common leaking problems at the start.) The Billow has never given a dry hit and works flawlessly. Extremely impressive!
