    Help with Vivi Nova

    Im a steadfast carto lover.. Out of impulse i purchased a couple of VIVI Novas. I had tried a wick based system before and the taste seemed better (damn thing leaked so i tossed it), neways.. got the novas.. put in a 2.4ohm coil and added 30pg/70vg juice, I let it sit for a few hours and tried it at various voltages from 3.4 right up to 4.4volts. In the end it tasted of nothing, not pleasant at all. Put the same juice in a carto/tank and whola, instant flavour. I'm thinking im doing something VERY wrong, can anyone give me some pointers??

    yes it gurgles. 3/4 filled it.. um.. size.. >> The tank capacity is rated at 3.5ml in total however for best results it is recommended not to exceed the 2.8ml mark.

    ive only vaped it for say.. 20 puffs. (puff a metric measurement??) hehehe.. Have I overfilled it? I understand high VG juice may limit the wicking, hence i let it sit for more than an hour. IF I have overfilled it, would it be as simple as syringing out half a mL or so, or will i have to drain it, clean it and start all over? Also what voltage would you all recommend i run the 3 various heads at?

    I use vivi-nova's all the time and they blow away carto's, Kanger's t3, I've tried them all and vivi nova's by far work the the best and lonest. I usually let them sit about 5 mins when new, and use the 1.8 ohm with 3 volts and 3 watts and the taste and amounts of smoke is great. Even with 30pg/70vg e-juice. Maybe the head is defective because it works great. Try the 1.8 ohm head.

    if it's a condom type cover over the whole thing, take it off. if it's a lil silica cap type thing holding the wicks in place, leave it there. not sure what a nova looks like, cos i don't have one, but for others, like stardusts and t2s, it's like that
