    When you get it you might have to swap the clamps like I did. Move the top to bottom and bottom to top. You want the coil legs to go behind the coil so the coils are closer to the airflow if that makes sense. I added a picture.

    I figuted I would get a clone to compare to the authentic. From looking at the pictures of the clone there are ALOT of differences. I want to see what the performance differences are. I will report back.

    P.S. I'm loving my authentic Lucid RDA. This thing is amazing in my opinion.

    I got my lucid today and I'm about ready to pull my hair out. I have already lost one spring and I had to switch my clamps around so I could pull my coils out towards the Airflow. Then the bottom clamp is not getting a good grip on my coil leg 8-/ as soon as I go to stretch my coil out and the leg slips right out. I have tried both spare clamps and they do it. Ughhh maybe it's because I'm using a 3x30gx40g Clapton but it's definitely not a tiny coil I am so frustrated right now. I have a feeling larger wire will grip but if that's the case ... I prefer 3x30gx40g it's my favorite type of fused Clapton

    Ya I just threw in some 4x30gx38g claptons and the bottom clamps on both sides will not grip the wire properly so I threw a regular 3x27gx36g n90 alien and it gripped fine. It appears it does not grip thin wire well. That is a big BIGGGG bummer but I'm hoping I just got a dud. The performance otherwise is very good...

    For the thinner wire you can try folding the legs over on themselves and then tighten them in the clamps before trimming. I forgot I did that with my rectangle wire coils. That worked really well.

    Thanks for the tip... I am actually super impressed with the flavor I'm getting off of this RDA and I have been squonking with it all night without a leak 8

    I've had my Lucid RDA for a month now and every time I use it I'm still impressed. I've got 2 new RDAs I haven't even bothered to build on yet. A Goon 1.5 and a Rapture. The Lucid has me spoiled. I know Sed8op8 has one. Does anyone else have a Lucid and what are your thoughts?

    Still using mine and loving it I was actually thinking of grabbing a second one in gold to rock on a brass dreamer mech mod. I would love to see a single coil squonky job lucid with a vertical..... Anyways what kind of builds are you using in yours. I have been using and having better luck with small framed staples small aliens etc. Round wire worked but this RDA for me really flourishes with exotic wire

    I'm running 26x26/36 316l ss fused claptons 4mm id .17ohm at 80 watts. I put all the same coils in a few different rdas to compare them. It really confirmed that, IN MY OPINION, the Dead Rabbit is garbage.

    I'm considering a purchase of Lucid RDA, Have same set up for LUCID in a VULCAN RDA, 25ml of juice used per day, So assume the LUCID will be no different.

    I put a tc build in the Lucid. I don't use tc very much anymore but I was surprised how much more flavor this build is producing. I love this RDA!
