    A7 Rebuildable Atty

    Has anyone else tried these out?

    I got a couple in the mail today, hoping to be able to use them on the Reo as you can bottom feed them. I noticed that the + centre pin was a little loose and wobbled about a bit, fired it up on the Provari to start with and worked fine, no errors and was a really nice vape. Got home and stuck it on the Reo and it collapsed the spring on the first fire.

    They definitely look promising for a cheap rebuildable for a bottom feeder, just a bit worried about the connection. I might see if I can pull it apart and insulate it a bit better , maybe get some silicone in there.

    Edit : looks like a common problem, found a link to a fix on ecf http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...ll-fit-29.html

    not looked at the link, what I did was found some hard carto caps, you know the white bit you pry out .. just sitting on my desk, so I snipped around the hole with a pair of sidecutters and made a small plastic spacer with it, I can now screw up firmly against it and it works fine.
    i have been meaning to stick a couple of pics in the tech section.

    i thought i had more hard carto tops, not sure they even make them anymore.
    heres my modded screw tho and the newer silicon top, i reckon they could be made to work too with some judicial snipping.

    Rather than snipping, why not use a dead carto, pull the center pin out of the connetor end, file the first threads on the connector into a sharp edge, then place the silicone in the center of the connector part of the carto with the hole in the silicone roughly in the center. Then use a hammer to tap down into the silicone & you'll make a perfect fitting insulator you just have to pry it out then.

    actually its a very loose screw, threads are so loose it dan rock side to side hence the short mentioned above.
    not sure if the hole in the silicon will help hold the tiny screw, the way i did it the screw is done up tight and that holds it.

    Cheers, Stoney. Will have a play with it later on. Not sure if you looked at the link above, but they used a strip of carto condom to wrap around the screw to the centre pin can't touch the sides at all.

    Would be nice if the chinese got this stuff right the first go

    yeh i looked later.
    mine was crooked still with my dodgy trimming until i screwed it onto a device, then it went straight and stayed there.
    worked fine since. i was more trying to stop the screw going in further when i screwed it on which kept happening. had no short.

    i thought it was pretty dodgy too.

    I find flavour is much better in the phoenix .. same coil, wick and juice and voltage .. I was using a crappy vaporbreak juice and on this, no flavour, then tried phoenix and could taste a nuance of chocolate and caramel quite easily.
    then I tried a menthol, all i got in phoenix was a cold menthol, in the A7 it tastes like a spearmint ..

    seems juices need different airflows at times.
