    Being as most of the talk on the other thread is about the smaller Phoenix I thought I would start one about the 3.3 ml version.

    I only ordered one and one Vivi Nova to try and found out I really like the 3.3 Phoenix best. I like the Vivi as far as replaceable parts and all but when it comes to vaping imho the 3.3 Phoenix has them all beat.
    So far it is the best of all the vision products I've tried. I've tried most of them including all three versions of the Stone, Grande's, Vivi and others. I haven't had one dry hit or any leakage at all and every hit has been the same so far, great taste and vapor.

    I hope they get the replacement tanks in so I can order more!

    Good job GV on this one because it is a winner!:2cool::vapor:

    Sounds good. I tried the smaller Phoenix and like it. What juice are you using and at what voltage?

    Im using PG 80-20 at 4v. The carto I'm using measures at 2.8. It vapes good from 3.3 to 4.2 I don't care for anything much above 4.2. I'm using it mainly with my LT but it works very good on my ego and Riva batteries too.

    Having purchased the Phoenix 1.5, Phoenix 3.0 and the ViVi Nova. I am truly enjoying all three with no problems at all. However my fav of the three is the Phoenix 3.0 as well. Been using on the Provari btwn 3.4 - 4.2, and enjoy it best at the 3.6 mark. Works well also on my eGo batts. Very pleased with the Phoenix line. Put another feather in your cap Gotvapes. You def have a winner with the Phoenix line. The ViVi needs a little bit more tweaking with the coil setup though. I have complete confidence though it will be corrected very soon. Cheers and happy vaping all.

    Thanks txtumbleweed. I was just going to start a similar thread, and look what I found - thanks! Love the phoenixXL version myself, and thinking of getting the larger one.

    Did you have to tweak the larger phoenix or was is good to go?

    The only other thing that gives me pause is the price. I realize it comes with accessories that I MAY use at some point. However, my policy has always been to buy 2 of something new just in case I get the 1 in whatever# that doesn't work well, and having a hard time justifying spending that much.

    Has GotVapes said anything about selling just the vital part?

    We had about the same results Boreman. I'm just surprised not many people have said much about the 3.3 version. I hope they sell a lot of them so they will buy the replacement tanks so we don't have to buy the whole setup every time.

    I didn't tweak anything at all it was great right out of the box. They are supposed to order just the tanks. It would be good to have a couple of complete setups. It comes with a nice drip-tip but any 801 drip tip will work. The sleeves are essential though but I have some already from the Ce2 humongomizer that are identical. I hope they get the tanks in soon so I can buy a bunch before something gets changed because these are the best clearos I've tried yet!

    Thanks.

    Another concern is leakage. The only reason I need a bigger juice holder is to carry around on one of those loooong days away from home. I already have a few such things I don't use much because of leaking if (when) they end up on their side in my pocket. Quite a mess.

    Have you had time to check this out?

    Zero leaks so far. I have mine on a mini lava on a lanyard and it hasn't leaked a drop. I also lay it down on it's side on my desk and haven't had any leaking then either. They also come with a metal cap that screws on the top which is good for transporting it. I don't use it normally but if I was just carrying a couple of spares I would probably utilize them.

    I have a question. I bought this along with the vivi nova, which has its own issues....and it seems i m having bad luck.
    but my question for the phoenix is this.....how long does it take before it breaks in? When I opened it, I noticed some kind of oil on the sleeve, and when I filled it up, got some nasty oil taste in my mouth. So i washed it out with water and white vinegar, dry burned it, but to be honest, didnt see the coils glow. I can still taste that oil or whatever it is. I m trying to vape it, but dont think i can do it much longer.

    I'm totally in love with the smaller phoenix cartos, so of course I had to order the tank. Imagine my horror when I went to gotvapes.com and found out the site is down for maintenance until 1 am Saturday. AHHH! I wanted to order them NOW. :D

    I haven't tried the tank yet, sadly, but I have had other attys that had some machine oil or something on them. Try cleaning it with some puregrain or really hot water and dry burn it until the coils glow. It's totally yucky when they have those on them, but once you get rid of it, it should be gone for good.

    if your 3ml taste funny then please do this, i also apologize that your having that issue.

    remove the cover, remove the inner plug
    remove the metal inner tube with tweezers or cuticle cutter
    no wash under hot water and fill it and blow througy it quickly, pushing the water out with force.
    repeat this 5 to 7 times then shake dry
    place on battery and wiggle off main tube with a good wiggle it will come off and slip on with no leaks at all, it will not leak so no need ot worry about removing the tube off the base,

    now wash the coil area under hot water and washt he whole unit itself, tube as well

    now pat it dry completly and dry it best you can
    now give it short bursts of 3 seconds with a pause in between of 3 or 4 seconds so it cools down a tad in between dry burns
    repeat this until the wick is dry and the coil begine to glow red, once it is red, repeat this 1 or 2 more times and your done.

    make sure the wicks are in position in their slots and place the metal tube on then the clear tube over the whole unit, place the inner plug back and fill and vape.

    i ran into one i was tasting that the primer was strong, this i what i did and it was perfect afterwords.

    Bad,

    I really appreciate that you put this stuff up....but I just want them to work out of the box....LOL. I'm an old lady...can take a computer apart and put it back together, tell you about all the parts you might need for your Harley...but just don't wanna mess with this stuff other than screw it on and vape.

    I'm totally hangin' in with you guys.....I appreciate the effort you make to give us great stuff and then make it right. Now.....waiting for the next cool thing....

    and they do hun, but sometimes on the line they add primer, it should be vg or pg, there happens to be a few that slip by using a nasty tobacco, thats what this was as i had one. the next batch will arrive with no primer of any kind so once again im sorry you had that experience.

    I've seen a few people talk about sticking their stuff in an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner to clean it. Couple of people said they just use distilled water, another said white vinegar first, then water.

    Anyone tried this??? I checked them out on Amazon.....would be a cool thing if it really works....thinking phoenix, plus Stardust, etc........

    I just did that. I used plain water. It seemed to work as well as soaking, just a lot faster. I'll use vinegar next time. I still had to dry burn the coils tho - but they were way crudded up.

    It may be a coincidence, but the stardusts I cleaned in the ultrasonic cleaner leaked afterwards. Haven't had it happen since I went back to just rinsing in alcohol and/or water.

    I'm too scared to try it again to see if something else was going on.
