    OK...this over heating problem has become even stranger. I got another gunmetal 1.5 and the same thing happens. After maybe a half-dozen hits, the barrel gets extremely hot, too hot to vape.
    I have a black 1.5 running at 55 watts which is 10 watts higher than the gunmetal and I just hit it 10 times in a row and it's barely warm.
    I tried the black barrel on the gunmetal deck and it takes a bit longer but it does get hot.
    I've also tried the black one on the same mod as I use the gunmetal on and it does not get warm even.
    I've pulled it apart completely and gave it all a clean.
    I'm using the chill version of the mesh wicked with rayon. The wicking is not an issue. I'm not getting anything like a dry hit.
    I have no idea why this is happening so any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You could try one of these heat sink adapters, YUHETEC 810 To 510 Heat Sink Drip Tip Adapter Black Other accessories Sale, Price & Reviews| Gearbest Mobile
    This is what I use but I only use 510 drip tips. I’m sure there is something similar that is just 810 if that’s your preference. Also a heat resistance drip tip, glass, ceramic, wood, and Teflon work very well and don’t get hot.
    As to why this is happening I have no idea. I vape my Profile in the 40 watt range and take short puffs so heat buildup isn’t a problem for me. Good luck solving this problem.

    I can only assume different metals are beeing used for different atomisers/parts.

    New update regarding my experience with the Profile.

    Wicking is easy and I didn't experience any major problems with hot spots.
    I already changed the mesh testing different types and so far so good.

    Flavour wise I feel it's on par with "normal" dual coil RDAs.

    Ramp-up it's instant and drinks liquid like crazy.

    I've done some tests and I really don't think this is for me.
    Actually, I never feel safe using it.

    Sadly my other options for squonking stayed at home so I will keep playing with it for some weeks to come.
