    aspire nautilus mini airflow problems

    hey guys i have quit vaping (SIGH)
    but i have recently converted a friend who went out and bought an aspire nautilus mini, I've noticed that there is less airflow in it than a pro tank...

    does anyone else know what the deal is with the nautilus mini? maybe somethings up with it? I've seen the normal nautilus and have heard they're really good but i think the mini stinks!!!

    any help would be great!!

    Check the coil
    BVCs have better air flow than BDCs

    at the base if the nautilus, there is a hole. you can turn the ring with the hole to 4 different airflow settings. just above the ring with the hole, there are 4 different size indentations around the naut. the hole lined up with the smallest indent gives the tightest draw. spin the ring around to line up with the different size indents according to what sort of draw you want. it should click when it's lined up properly with one of the indents.

    I've been thinking of drilling my full size nautilus tanks out, to get better airflow, and more use from them.
    They're in front of me now, one with a BVC coil, one with a ceramic coil. Not getting any use, except for trying out the new ceramic coils.
    After using the Silo tank, with the Aspire Nautilus BVC coil, and the Atlantis, sub ohm, with great airflow, it's hard to go back to restrictive tanks.
    I used to think the Nautilus was a great tank, I've never tried a mini naut.

    I don't know if I'll ever give up vaping.
    I liked smoking, but after decades I'd buggered up my lungs, and the gov't got greedy with their tax, so I started to vape.
    Vaping is even better than smoking.
    I can enjoy walking again since stopping smoking, I no longer wheeze, and cough.
    My lung capacity has improved, I'm sure some of that is due to the vape loosening the tar and coughing it out.
    There's something incredibly relaxing about vaping, just as there was with smoking, but vaping is far better.
    I don't see myself ever stopping vaping.

    Yep, and you can accidentally spin the wheel in your pocket or when you're refilling with juice/changing the coil. If there's not enough airflow turn it until there is.

    Drill the smallest hole, I don't know anyone who uses the smallest setting
    Since the largest hole is 1.8mm, try 2.2mm first.
    Then 2.6mm in the second largest hole
    And 3.0mm in the third hole
    So you will end up with 1.8mm, 2.2mm, 2.6mm, 3.0mm holes
    The ring on an mini may be to small to do this
    You may need to try 1.4mm - 1.8mm - 2.2mm - 2.6mm
    (Aspire aren't really serious with an 0.9mm hole are they,
    It's really a pilot hole isn't it?)

    jlmanos don't try and drill your air holes yet, first check if they are clear.
    A tooth pick will work for this, juice can dry and block up the air holes.
