    My daughter just had me order a Black Zerk, seems she wants to try a different topper than what she is using now, the Tron-S's. I'll have to help her with building, but that's OK. Oh, and she is 42 years old and trying to stay off smokes.

    To be honest, I have never gotten muted flavor from the berserker. You could try raising the coil. What type of eliquid are you using and what wick?

    I always get more flavor with the coil closer to the air hole. Muted flavor could be anything, build, wick amount, too low wattage etc. Tell us more and post some pics.

    got a 0.74 ohm 2.5 dia ni80 (roundwire) coil and got 20W on that (3.85V) and quite near the air hole. Pics later. First try will be higher watt

    I don't know how much higher in wattage you can go with the Zerk's small chamber, I would think that it would create quite a bit of heat in that small of a space, but your findings will be interesting.

    Looks like your wire under the right hand screw is bowed out from under the screw a bit, it might touch the coil chamber. Other than that it looks like a Good Build. Is that 28g NiCr 80 you are using ?? If so then that is the same that I use, and it works pretty good for me.

    Is that the oddly shaped "L" shaped flat Base o-ring that came with your Zerk ??

    I finally got my (3) Bubble tanks from FT today that were lost in the mail. All were in fine shape, so they must have been pushed into a corner somewhere and forgotten about. 28 days since they left FT, normally takes just 9-11 days.

    Looks like I'm batting a Thousand tonight. As long as it works, it must be good then.

    I haven't tried my bubble tanks yet, I might do that in a few days though.

    How do you wrap your wire ends? I wrap mine around the screws only in mine. I keep seeing some with the wires wrapped around those outer pieces on each screw...
    I find that doing it that way might lead to an unstable contact point.

    Does that make sense?

    The first thing to consider after the basics are checked, do I need to dry burn and rewick? Even moderated amounts of coil gunk buildup can reduce production significantly.

    How many ml’s does the beserker hold with the bubble tank? Also what kind of dog do you have? Mine goes nuts for an antler, lucky my brother in law is a hunter so he always finds antlers while in the forest and shares the broken or beat up ones with my pup. There pricey and sorry for the thread drift.
