    So as the title says..... i tried using microcoils regular and even steel mesh , ribbon wires and kanthal a1 silica elkwool cotton yet i can't get a satisfied vape cloud that is consistant and it leaks thru the hole of reomizer side from over flow or its a dry hit . what am i doing wrong ? I feel my nemeiss mech mod or provari actually performs alot better, keep in mind my favoirte vape has been from a genesis rsst with an increased air hole but reo mizers hole already leaks to much and pops off easy this is not the mod i thot it to be and i feel disapointed the reo grand was not even full painted and could see the aluminum parts still so i dont know why it was sold not as a blemished but i feel it was blemished because of the imperfections from the paint already noticed .

    Do you have a Reomizer 1 or a reomizer2. The 2 won't eak if you make sure to not have any wick laying on the deck as it can block the excess juice from going down the tube. This could also affect your vapor production as it is likely flooded. I don't have any experience with the first Reomizer but insure if that's what u have someone will chime in and help u there.

    Hi misterkorean :)
    Sorry to hear about your disappointment. Hopefully we can give you a hand.
    Unfortunately, I don't have any genny experience, so I can't give you any direction to find the best way to set it up for a genny like vape. but I'm guessing if it's leaking out the hole, then there is too much juice in the RM2 and that will have a big impact on vapor production, flavor and throat hit. It may be helpful if you post pictures of your coil and wick installed so we can get a better idea of what is going on. I'll let the others who have more experience with gennys give you more direction here.

    As for the condition of the device, I think this is something you should address with redeyedancer (Rob) directly. He should be made aware of this. You are welcome to PM him or even call him (his number is on the website). In the meantime, I'll let him know about your concerns.

    Sorry you're having trouble. I'm thinking we can get you up and running. When you say the "reomizers hole already leaks to much and pops off easy"....what do you mean? What pops off? The Reomizer cap screws on, so I'm not sure what is popping off. Please clarify. There are several really good threads started and videos posted by super_x_drifter that show a well-wrapped micro coil. Have you watched them?

    Also, what gauge of Kanthal A-1 are you using? I use either 28 gauge or 30 gauge wire, and I use cotton wicks.

    If it leaks out the hole, maybe your coil is blocking the drain hole in the bottom of the Reomizer. Make sure you don't have your coil seated too low, or you don't have any cotton/ekowool/silica...whatever you're using for a wick....blocking the drain hole.

    Could you post pictures of your coil/wick? We could help diagnose what is keeping you from your fabulous vape.

    Also, it would be helpful to see pictures of the blemishes/imperfections from the paint. That is extremely unusual. I've never known of a REO that wasn't perfect unless it was marked as a blem....and even then it's nearly impossible to find the blem.

    sorry i meant pop off as in thats the noise i hear. the not fully painted mod is in the interior but i see where what looks like it got messed up on the cut during measurements maybe for window as well. I got a wrinkle olive drab grande. I thot it would be a more tactile button as well. And i did watch many video's is ribbon wire not good for microcoil?

    reomizer the newest one this was just recently purchased from the site. at the momement not able to take pictures on to the computer since I dont have a camera phone that i use to use to transfer such photo's if needed be but i will in a week hopefully it will be resolved or traded/sold if it does not sit with me...?

    One morequestion i also was wondering is the newer reomizer supposed to be for the reo mini? becase it seems like such a small rebuildable that it seems like it was made for the mini the bottom part even sticks out not sure if thats normal.

    Try feeding the atomizer with the drip tip off and watch the juice come up and then go down and make sure the wick is not preventing jucie from comming up or doing down the drain hole. I would do a couple of sqeezes to see how your juice reacts, make sure the wick and coil are seeing juice, make sure access juice is going back down, and make sure you arent squeezing too hard to cause juice in the reo to reach the air hole. If all those are happening then I am stumped.

    Edit: I get a pop when I have a fully/ almost full charge in my battery from all that WATTy goodness and as far as the bottom of the RM2 it is suppose to be visable.

    i do see fluid come out of the hole and seems to have trouble going back in. I put the o ring around atomizer thing is it perhaps still not air tight some how? the wick either takes to long to get vape and i have to warm it up or gets dry to fast when i use it.

    Micro coils are tight no gaps squeezed after heated as well so i dont get what i'm doing wrong still maybe i recieved one that was a defect or some sort? When i first opened packaged was excited but only to be disappointed to the imediate noticed costmetic defects and was worried which may very well be one that may have missed the inspection part?

    Shouldnt it be painted and not show non painted area's? and i don't think i should see cuts measurements and over cut spots should i? I already pmed redeyedancer so hopefully he will aide in the problem. I am sure this has more then likely got to be a good product atleast reo supporters responded so quickly and multiple so he does have the customers to back upthe product.

    The o ring goes into the Reo well cup not on the Reomizer2. Watch the vid instructions.

    What are your ohms on the coil you made?

    The popping can be a hidden hot leg or, in the case of cotton, too little cotton. Micro-coils are less prone to hot legs but they can still happen on occasion. I haven't had much success with silica and micro-coils. I recommend sticking with cotton.

    As for juice coming out the hole, that sounds like over-squonking (which I still tend to do on occasion when I'm not paying attention). Try squeezing the bottle once, holding it a bit to soak the wick, and then release to let the excess juice flow back down the tube.

    As for lack of vapor, this can be a result of the excess juice or perhaps your ohmage is too high. Try building a 1.5 ohm micro-coil at 1/16 diameter with 30 awg. I get an amazing vape with that build.

    Misterkorean it would be really helpful if you could post pics of your setup coil wick placements and your oring placement Im certain we can help get you up and running. As far as the finish issue I'm sure Rob will address for you but the insides aren't really finished so much as they get all scuffed in time from doors on and off etc I hope the outside is good though :)

    Also another culprit of juice drainage could be your feeder tube sucking itself to the bottom or side of the bottle. Notch a v on the bottom of the juice tube to ensure it never sucks itself to the bottle.

    Hello Andrew painting the inside of the mod with a heavy coat causes problems with tight tolerances in the box . Its common to see the box not fully painted on the inside up near the black insert . The springs are put in on a angle on purpose . The doors are raw aluminum on the back they have to be if they were painted the paint would simply come off with all the rubbing .

    The atomizer is made to fit all of the mods so yes on a grand it does stick up a little . I cant make a atomizer for each unit I have two many models . If the mod is blemished on the outside send it to me I will replace it .

    I cut an inverted V into my tube before I fired it the first time. Look at a couple of wicking videos and make sure everything is on the mark. We do need pictures to help you get it right. Until the pix come all we can do is guess at what it could be. Don't give up we will get you to your perfect vape.

    Yes, would really like to help with the vape but like Raynman mentioned above, without pictures of the build, it would be nearly impossible. We'll get you vaping like a rockstar - just put a nice close up of the coil / wick on here :)

    This is what we 'll be shooting for :

    I think you just need more practice. Also make sure the coils are wicking properly.

    I had a similar issue when I first got my mini last week. My first build was not very flavorful and I kept getting dry hits. I would say you should try to experiment with your build. I have had good luck with just building a coil with silica. I wrap the coils super close together, kinda like a mcro coil it has been hitting like a dream.

    The RM2 is very sensitive to coil placement. Try to get part of the coil near the base.

    As Rob stated, it isn't a blemish unit, most REOs come with little expose aluminum parts on the inside upper corner where the delrin cover sits. A blemished REO is when the outside (the actual visible part while vaping) of the mod has imperfections.

    The Reomizer2 does not leak, in fact one of the pros of REO+RM2 is how leak proof it is. The only way to get juice leaking out of its airhole is that somehow the feeding hole of the RM2 is clogged most likely by the wick you made. As SXD pointed out you could try an angled coil or simply making sure your wick is not covering the hole. There should be no problem drilling the airhole out once you've figured out why it is leaking. Oversquonking with a clogged feeding hole is certain leaking as no juice will flow back down.

    Genny tanks give the closest quality vape you can get without dripping, so simply making a good coil on a dripper will give you an equal/superior vape.

    Best thing to do is post up some pics of your coil and we'll be able to more accurately pinpoint your issue.

    Just an FYI correction for all. Although it is highly unlikely for the RM2/REO combo to leak at the atty connector it can and does happen. I am not referring to juice coming out of hole rather under base of RM2.

    I feel a need to challange absolutes especially when giving advice to new peeps.

    And I fully agree that pictures are really needed. Perhaps new REOnaut could get a friend or even casual acquaintance to snap some pics with phone and email to so they can then be posted.
