    I have some 50pg/50vg green apple that I like, and tried it in the ultramax, and it didn't seem to work very well at all. Is this normal, and should I just stick to a 70/30 split for the RES setup?

    Well, when the res was designed I know that they designed it to work with vg based liquids first and foremost so I would think it should work just fine but if your having success with 70-30 then stick with what works ya know?

    Motard your atty is getting flood while you drag right ? For thinner liquids drop less and try again.

    Yeah I know, but I have a bunch of the 50/50 stuff as I accidentally ordered the wrong mix :facepalm: Oh well, just cut my losses and buy new 70/30 I guess, the flavor is less on the 50/50 anyway.

    No, I'm getting almost dry pulls actually, very harsh.

    Yeah, I tried and it still didn't like the thicker juice. It's like it's too thick for the ceramic to wick it down to the weep holes in the RES. I dunno, I took it all apart and gave it a good cleaning and went back to a thinner juice and all is well again. I'll just drip the thick stuff with one of my other PV's I guess. Thank you guys though!

    thats very weird, these thing works the best with thicker liquids ! are you "painting" the RES or dripping in the atty and blowing down ? if its the last one how many drops ?

    Well, that's very interesting. I actually did this through the atomizer and didn't paint the RES. Maybe I'll try it by painting it on and give that a go? The few pulls I got tasted fantastic, sweet tangerine, nom nom!

    Yes the RES is designed around our Ultrapure liquid which is 100% VG. Very thick stuff. The best way to fill the RES is to drop about 10 drops into your atty. Then gently blow the liquid through your drip tip down into the RES. Ultramax can generally hold about 30-40 drops of liquid. The thicker the liquid the more it can hold. Try that and see if that helps.

    Well after a good thorough cleaning ( I let the RES soak in hot water for about five minutes), and letting it all air dry, I put it all back together this morning and gave it another go by filling through the atomizer as suggested. Same results, either it isn't wicking the juice at all, or something is getting filtered in the wick itself, because it tastes horrible. I can take the same atty and put it on any other device and it's fine, so I know the atty isn't the issue. Oh well, disappointing, but I guess everything has it's limitations.

    Just for testing purposes, I cleaned my ultramini and filled it with the same juice after drying. Same result. Odd thing is, I have two juices from the same vendor in the same mix, everything, one works and one doesn't, and both are fruit flavors. Hmmm, I guess no green apple for me on my morning commute. :D

    Yeah, at least I know though roxxette. Maybe another brand, or another mix of green apple would be fine, but not this one.
