    I have an authentic reload. Does anyone else’s airflow slide pop off easily?

    It’s tight when it’s connected to my mod but if I take it off to wipe it down it has twisted off pretty easily.

    Mine is a bit more loose, when off the mod, but it doesn't pop off easily either.

    Does it come off at all? Is it even supposed to?

    I did comparison test between Reload RTA authentic vs clone, seller said it was Kindbright. Same wire material, fused clapton ni80, 3mm diameter with 5 wraps. The authentic is far away superior in flavour, dense, bold, layering on e-juice. The only one I caught the difference between authen vs clone is on the, I don't know what is name, somekind of a 510 pin when I looked at inside the juice ring. The authen one more thicker vs clone.

    Yeah. The Kindbright sucks.
    The "most expensive" clone in gold with the bubbleglass at FT is absolutely immaculte however, and it has become one of my daily drivers. Buildquality is really impressive and superior to a whole lot of authentics out there. In comparison to the authentic Reload the vapequality is at least on par.
    The best 14$ I've ever spent.

    I recieved the Mojia Version from Fasttech and it is an excellent clone, imo.
    It's made out of 316L, it is so well machined, threads are soft as butter and it came with an extra big bubble glas .
    But it was so dirty :confused:
    All parts had 3 rounds in my usb and an electric teethbrush cleaning did the trick.
    I changed the airflow o-ring after several leaks and it is perfect now.
    Coiled with 2 fused claptons, 0,3 Ohm, 90-100W.
    A thirsty little hitter, my recommendation.

    I have that same SKU coming in the mail, should arrive sometime within the next year! :p

    Is the o-ring you replaced the one around the deck that the glass sits on?

    Did you use one of the included spare rings or from elsewhere?

    Slowtech order finally arrived today, went with $11.95 Reload Styled RTA Rebuildable Tank Atomizer - 316 stainless steel + glass / 24mm diameter at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping and it's working flawlessly straight out of the box after a good soak and scrub with hot water + dish soap.

    Definitely recommend this for people on a budget, performance is easily on par with genuine Reloads I've had and sold in the past but this clone is a fraction of the price AND comes with a bubble glass.

    I'd stick with the (B) 316 SS variants if you want a different colour, look for the red o-ring in the top cap pictures. Apparently this indicates that it's a MoJia clone which is the one you want.

    Only downside I found was that one of the grub screws came real wonky, took it out and replaced it straight away.

    If you go for it you should definitely get a pack of these
    $1.71 Replacement Screws for Reload RTA Atomizer (20-Pack) 20-pack - stainless steel at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping and maybe some spare glass if you're clumsy. Click the Related Items tab to find compatible spares.

    Try the CoilArt Azeroth RTA. Very nice flavor even in dual coil configuration.

    just got mine the other day from fasttech (reload styled RTA black 27mm does not stay stainless steel in description or whatever 11th of May 2018 if I recall)

    used Smok Beast tanks (TFV8 Beast as well I own Big Baby Beast) flavor was "ok" but only if you run at high watts with just the right coil and keep upping and downing the watts to prevent cooking the liquid on them (was major pita)

    numerous other tanks after I had "cracked" it trying to use the crappy RBA deck on it which came in the kit (completely killed one of my box mods from a short... stupid smok not testing parts..I really loved that previous box mod because I could LOCK the fire and the wattage and still use it, whereas this Alien 220w you cannot lock and still use)
    =======================
    ==========

    Aspire Nautilus (flavor really not that good TBH, coils not last very long, tank got quite hot and was very restricted MTL or ATL because of very narrow drip tip.

    Kanger subtank (forget actually model, but used the ceramic coil .35 ohm in it...flavor was actually pretty decent for ~1 week then dropped very quickly)

    Goblin V2 (dinky little screw hole to actually fill it (decent flavor, but quite a pain to constantly deal with when filling it)

    Got Troll RTA (v1) flavor once got used to it was pretty nice, but, getting the wicks just right and the coils in just the right place to get the most of the flavor/airflow and either not getting dry hit or leak was/is a major pain, though the refilling or being able to take the bottom of tank off, when liquid was in it was a very nice thing (compared to almost every other tank on market) used for ~5-7 months (using for awhile)

    Got OBS Engine ~2.5 weeks ago (fasttech) the coils that it ships with are "ok" but they almost get too hot when you fire them where they like to be fired and almost cooks the flavor right out of it, likely the size of tank, or the vapor tunnel was not large enough for what these coils want to run at.

    I rebuilt with 8 wrap 26g Kanthal A1 3mm ID Rayon wick (read as .645 ohm) the 100% rayon sally beauty supply one..had to rewick a few times to "learn" it) flavor is actually very nice now (quite close to troll RTA but ZERO leaking can happen in comparison)
    ===============================
    ==============

    Got this Reload Styled RTA 27mm last week (same but 7 wrap 3mm ID Rayon single wire Kanthal (like did with OBS Engine minus 1 wrap) reads at .545 (auto-set wattage mode HIGH Alien 220w..effectively 1 less wrap reading ~.015-.028 better than it would be at minimum in many many coil builds over many many tanks says the design has very good contact with positive/negative)

    I screwed around trying to get just the right amount of wick and nestled up and close to airflow (like so many online reviews say you should be doing) and while flavor was "ok" almost always felt like I was sucking thick milkshake through a straw,

    rebuilt, rebuilt, rebuilt....lost the 510 pin until I found it on the floor later evening on the 20th (in use maybe 2.5 days TOPS) rebuilt it once again, still felt like milkshake through a straw suction....grrr....so I flipped it on the cap (once again leak like crazy) moved the coils away from airflow ~1mm.

    sure as heck airflow is AMAZING now (far far better than any tank I have even used, except maybe OBS Engine or Beast tanks full open, properly wicked/high flow coil) but even if not able to do mach 1 airflow (who needs this when get a lung full 1/3 open 4-5 seconds 50-62w flat) the flavor is out of this world. way way superior to any tank I have ever used (including a few drippers) ZERO spitback, likely fairly close to many drippers for the sheer clouds I can push out and absolutely perfect flavor, i.e vape a nice chocolate flavor that is ALL you can taste (unlike other tanks where it can be muted or cannot taste some of the small % you have added to the mix) O.O

    =========================
    ===========

    I had issue with airflow ring being much looser than I would expect it to be (does not fall off, but has zero tension holding it where I want it to be...have changed o ring and no longer a problem) but, for something that cost like $16 SHIPPED to Canada, I wish I would have saved the money in buying that OBS Engine, Troll RTA, Big Baby Beast etc (win some lose some)

    least I got the hex screwdriver (instead of allen key like this ships with) and a couple of solid screws should the ones in this fail, got rayon wick and 26g wire to make probably another 300+ coil changes (at a fraction of the price it would cost to continuously buy premade coils from Smok, Aspire, Kanger etc)

    For the 510 positive pin, I highly advise anyone looking to buy this amazing tank (suggest the 27mm "bubble" version for the extra juice capacity) make 100000% sure the 510 pin is tightened down (is reverse threaded at least it is on mine) so you do not lose it (like I almost did)

    ----------------------
    -----------

    only other "issue" I noticed is CANNOT take off bottom when juice is in it (even when it does not go over the "tunnel" or it will absolutely leak out of the top .unlike TROLL RTA where I could keep ~80% full tank and as long did not have the juice over the central "tunnel" it would not just dump the entire tank out of (I think is the drip tip)

    I think for the top cap is, no o ring that I can see, though the included glass drip tip has a tiny one on it, it may not fully seal to the "tunnel" so the mm gap or so gives an automatic place for juice to go right out the top of it if flipped "upside down"

    I cannot see a way to make sure top is leak proof like the TROLL RTA is (which I love about it) but still is a solid tank (especially for 1/4 to 1/10th the price of comparable flavor/cloud chucking tank I have personally seen or have used) flavor really is out of this world, nice thick juicy clouds even compared to TROLL RTA (close to many drippers, not quite there, but close) which I found was best I used prior to this (minus the potential wick/coil not done right factor, Troll RTA done PERFECTLY vs this, this one no contest)

    I have used some drippers in the past, I would put this against any other tank (at the wattage I am running/build am using) and likely this little tank will win hands down.

    I think IMO they need to figure out a way to make sure you can ratchet the bottom down nice and snug so less of a chance when you make sure it is not "loose" on mod that when you try to take the tank off it "spins" the glass causing it to loosen (which sucks when dump juice everywhere just trying to make sure tank does not wiggle back and forth)

    ABSOLUTELY phenomenal. likely "best $16 purchase I have made in my life. vaping may not be the "healthiest thing" but when it tastes like this who the hell cares ^.^

    Hey, I was offline for a while, sorry.
    Did not get an email notice about replys to this thread.

    I replaced the oring of the airflow, but I think it wasn't necessary.
    I had some leaking, but it wasn't caused because of the oring.
    My wicking was not perfect, more cotton works very well now.
    I'm glad that you like it.

    Try it with Alien coils, it is a an awesome vape !!!

    Not sure if you have the MoJia clone but the 510 pin can definitely be fiddly. I found that the 510 pin being reverse threaded can loosen the fastener between the deck and the pin. I ended up stripping it all down and then cranking that middle fastener really tight with needle-nose pliers. Then I watched it through the airflow as I tightened up the 510 pin to make sure it stayed tight.

    Depending on the spares you got with yours, I wanted the AFC to be a little tighter so I tried swapping out the o-ring with one of the spares that go on the top/bottom of the tank. Gives it a much nicer tolerance IMO but make sure you lube it up or you might shred the o-ring if it gets caught in the AF holes as you're twisting the collar back on.

    If I recall correctly my authentic reload had an o-ring on the actual top cap. The MoJia variant I got has an o-ring around the chimney which clamps down when you screw the top cap on. This keeps the tank sealed when upside down so I don't have any issues taking the deck off with a full tank, obviously whilst upside down.

    Have been dripping lately but the Reload is still my go-to tank when I'm too lazy to drip :p
