    Hi. I just got my KR808D-1 Smokeless Image Volt pv yesterday and I love it! The only problem I have is that I'm burning my lips on my clear plastic drip tip. I know I was taking long hard draws and that that was a big part of the problem and I'm doing that less now, but I just want to know if you know of any heat-resistant drip tips or drip tips that don't conduct heat. I would really appreciate your help!!! Thank you so much! :)

    I too would care to know about such tips. I take long, hard draws and always heat up my tips. It's a nuisance I'd like to not have.

    What kind of atty do you have? I got a LR 306 with a black aluminum cannon drip tip and it's awesome. Warm but never hot.

    My fav combo is hh357 and ming metal tip. I dont get burned but do get really warm and thats no good. Wondering if there was a heat resistant rubber tip, like those rubber mittens for the oven.

    the "delorian" drip tips usually won't burn your lips. LOL!!!! JK. I'm surprised any drip tip is getting that hot. Not seeing it on my own volts. If it is too much, you can snip the tip off the end of the plastic protectors that came on the cartomizers and slip it over the tip. It won't look pretty and may feel weird but it will make them usable in the meantime. I hope someone comes along with a good answer for you soon. have you asked in the Volt thread?

    Longer drip tips can be found on various sites out there. You might also want to try a gooseneck. I've been wanting to try one myself.

    The gooseneck goes in between your battery/mod and your atomizer. It doesn't add any distance between your mouth and the atty/carto.

    I have a goose and this is true. Still nothing will get in the way from heating the drip tip.

    Aha! I thought that it did, hence my wanting to try one. My bad.

    I tried acrylic and delrin and they didn't burn my lips but got pretty warm. I'm going to try pyrex because I really don't like a warmth that builds up when you take a strong drag. I didn't try celluloid so that's an option too! Thank you! :)

    Hi! I just use cartomizers. It was recommended to me to get glass or pyrex drip tips. I contacted customer service at theecig.com about their pyrex drip tips and they told me that "The glass does not transfer heat at all" so I'm going to buy one of those! I think they look really cool too! :)

    That would be awesome if there were rubber drip tips like those heat resistant oven mitts but I haven't heard of any yet!!!

    Hi Charlz! Thank you for the great idea about the plastic protector! I used it temporarily and it was a life saver! :) Since then I got an acrylic drip tip that is ok and doesn't burn but I don't like how it gets hotter as I take a big drag. I'm going to buy a pyrex drip tip! You can read my reason and where I'm getting it from somewhere above! LOL on the "Delorian" drip tips!!! I think you're picking on me!!! He he! [​IMG]

    Good choice....should have thought of that. pyrex will stay cool and won't mess with flavor like plastic and rubber ones can!
