    Thanks David. I have rebuilt worse than this, but it does get easier the more you do it. I have done it quite a few times on the first 2 pods I was using, this is the 3rd pod I have broken apart to rebuild.

    Very glad I could help. I had to do some really crazy work to get my phone to be able to video it, but if it helps others then it was worth it. :)

    Thanks :)
    As for the older eyes, I have them also :facepalm: But I have a very good magnifying glass on an adjustable arm, without which I could rebuild nothing. :facepalm:

    Awesome! Thanks for doing a video very helpful waiting for my premade FT coils to show up so I can rewick my 5 pods. Burned through them in about a week and a half. Great little device still just still would get expensive without the rebuilding. Thanks once again!

    Burnie, someone hijacked your account. There's a strange man staring through your avatar.

    Yes, I know there's an issue with posting in this thread. We're aware of the issue, and we're looking into the cause.

    I was gonna hit up the Help and Feedback forum but I figured I'd just wait.
    I've found that if I just wait things eventually get sorted.

    My Rock and 4 extra pods should be here on Monday. Ordered two pods for the Cora as well. Going to do a side by side comparison on the two.

    Interested in how they compare. :)

    Well, decided to try to rebuild one and use Rayon for the wick. Was not easy to get the wick in that coil, but I got it done. :)

    Lots better flavor than the silica wick. I am on the 3rd tank and it is not leaking and wicks fine with 70/30 and 50/50 juice. Going to use the Rayon for a while and see how I like it. The coils I used are from FT # 1591800, which are the ones I use in the Sophia that I wick with KGD. You could also use the ones with silica wick, just pull it out and put in Rayon.

    If I could find a cheaper source for the pods (I'm definitely working on it), the Cora would be awesome. I'm hoping the Rock compares favorably with the Cora. Going to take both of them to work with me on Monday and give them a good workout. :D

    Mine showed up today, and like you, am not too wild about the built in USB connection. And the charging light is going to drive me positively mental. Then again, only spent 10 bucks on the thing, so I'm not going to rage too much. :lol:

    HOLY CRAP!

    45mg NicSalts in this thing is too much!

    Filled up with some 24mg e-liquid I had stashed. Much better. We'll see if it does the job, though.

    Initial impression. Too airy. More so than the old protanks!

    Yea it is to airy but if you place the button downward and put 4 fingers across the top (so it's not to strange to hold) you can place your pointer finger over the top hole and get a much tighter draw. That's how I use mine after a few times I just hold it that way cause i like the the tight draw of the von erl and wanted to get it similar can also add something to the other side to get it even tighter (tape, etc).

    Off topic, sort of... But this IS the Rock thread :)! I'm wondering how everyone else fills these pods? The tiny fill holes weren't meant to be used with the normal size dropper on a Mr Salt-E bottle... I've had to improvise by sacrificing (lol) an old eliquid but it's a temporary fix. The bottle tip is perfect (teeny), but the bottle itself is on its last legs due to being squeezed too much :blush:
    I looked some at FT but wasn't able to find exactly what I'm looking for... Not even sure what to "call" what I'm looking for! Like an extension for a dropper?? Yielded zero products :oops:

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I use these
    $2.56 E-liquid Refiller Bottle for Electronic Cigarette (10-Pack / 10mL) 10-pack at FastTech - Worldwide Free Shipping
    They come in different sizes, these are the 10ml, but I also have larger ones, work very well.

    If the bottle doesn't have a needle tip, I just dig out the syringe from my DIY box.
