    I was talking about cleaning the coils. I'm sorry you're having so much troubles. They have been really great for me. I did have one that either it spent too much time being banged around in my pocket or I over tightened it and the tube was kinda crooked on the base. I just replaced it. I've had zero problems with them making contact on ego vv, revolver, and beretta batteries.

    No sorry, I'm still figuring all the new stuff out. Yee Gods, I was hitting joy sticks when they were new and EGo's when THEY came out before I went back to smoking the junk. I have figured out the dual coils are working pretty darn good on the 5 click egos. The other rebuildables are coming back to life when I put them on the new ego batterys. I AM bummed I am going to have to prolly toss a few more hundred towards a setup that finally works for me but if I can finally get the right combination I will be happy. I am stupid when it comes to electronic stuff, so I am trying and retrying, hoping to find the best match for me. I also didn't mention I bought the almond candy and the vanilla coffee juice (30ML UGH!!!) 3 weeks ago with my 1st order, because I used to luuuuuurve them. These 2 seem to gum up the works. They just don't burn clean enough it seems for whatever combo I have going atm. I've shelved both of those. Don't know if it's because they are dark, not HV or what. Anyways, I'm still trucking on. Curious what Drews take is on the whole mix, which battery vs which rebuildable tho!

    Oh! And how abouts are you cleaning these coils Hittman? I am finding without cleaning I have to tap the crystals against something to get them working, they seem to stutter and not produce. Then I tap em a few times on something, a counter, a table side, and then they start working fine again. Kind of like they're not connecting somehow. And thats in 48 hours of use =/ I'm doing something wrong....I just can't narrow what it is!

    I know you've got a lot invested already but you might want to give the new Aspire clearos a try. I put a 50/50 liquid in one and it wicks great with no burnt taste. I have the mini vivi one.

    Thanks! I'll check them out. I refilled one of the blues with the French Vanilla. The whole taste and vaping has changed now. I must be with which crystals I am using on which battery...which I'm still confused about but hey! If it works I'm a happy girl!!!

    In the past whenever I have had a few attys or coils pop on me in a short amount of time it has been the battery.:glare:

    If a couple pop in a row I set aside the battery and grab another battery.

    90 % of the time it has been the battery causing the short, not the coil or atty.

    My active batts at this time include, 8 Rivas, 6 iGos, 2 iGo Revolvers, 4 1300 510 Revolvers {my favorites} and a bunch of other smaller revolvers.

    Mrs Huffin was swapping out standard crystals left right and sideways telling me it was a freshly charged battery. I handed her another battery and all the carts were all good.

    I usually have two or three active replaceables in use.:vapor:

    The replaceable last longer using the 510 connection batteries. They also virtually never leak at the connection base when not over tightened.

    The standard 510 crystal sometimes restricts the draw vs. the replaceable which has an unrestricted draw.

    Why the difference? I don't have a clue:unsure:

    As far as the tank being crooked or off center Ill bet they have been dropped;)

    If they are off center just run your fingernail around the base of the plastic and you can feel the space where it has lifted:facepalm:

    I remove them from the battery and remove the tip.

    I then stand it up with the battery connection on the bottom placed on my desk.

    I grab my harmonica case and place it on the top where the tip has been removed.

    I give the harmonica case a thump with my palm and the tank drops right back into place:2cool:

    If you don't own a harmonica {it works the best} a vitamin bottle top down or an aspirin bottle etc also works well:evil:
