    mini-nova with a protank coil

    Hi guys, I purchased a mini-nova from fasttech and well I did some experimenting with it,
    Basically I unscrewed the vivi-nova 2.4 ohm coil and wanted to see if a protank coil would screw on, It did, so then it all screwed together just fine, the protank coil was sticking out the top of the mininova and into the drip tip, I notice when I removed the drip tip that there was a 1.5mm gap around the hole the mininova, So I removed the top and pushed the vivinova rubber gasket on the protank coil metal stem and screwed it together again and that stopped it from leaking, how simple, Then I tried it and it worked.
    So basically unscrew the mininova coil, screw in a protank coil, take the rubber gasket off the vivi-nova coil and place it on the top of the protanks metal stem and screw it together and vape.
    LoL that was too easy.

    but isn't a protank a bottom coil clearo and a vivi nova a top coil clearo? how does it go wicking with a bcc coil in a top coil clearo?

    well its basically the same sort of coils setup, it gets the positive from the bottom, and wicks in the middle and vapor from the top. It works rather nicely

    Kay, a coil is a coil, all it really does is heat juice into vapor.

    I imagine though that with the very short wicks of a BCC head, that the amount of tilting required to prevent dry hits will be quite frequent, in a tank designed for a top coil.

    I'm curious, Jeff.

    Is there any real advantage to this? Better vapour or flavour?

    I'm a vivi fanboi and think I have perfected the coil rebuilding for these but I am always open to new ideas.

    yeah, I guess it was just the tilting/twirling I was thinking about. with the top coil clearos I've used, I've had to do that even with the long wicks once i'm about half way thru the tank. it'd drive me nuts if I had to do it right from the start. I know the coil itself would still fire if all the connections were made, just wondered about wicking issues, is all.

    I was a large vivi-nova fan, I probably have around 20 of them, Then I tried the kanger pro tank and like the amount of vapor/flavour better but didn't the pyrex smashing on the ground first drop or the metal taste from the tip. So then I tried a Evod, it was nice but not as good as the protank, So Then I tossed a protank coil in the evod and it was perfect, only one thing, The evod didn't hold much juice, So then they came out with the T3S, Well I purchased about 12 of them the first month they were out, Basically its a 3ml evod that uses Protank coils, These are great, Then Never Leak, unlike vivi-nova's, They last almost all day, Fill once and I'm good until I come home from work.
    Then I made the KangerNovaStein for all my citrus juices , You get the metal tank and a kanger protank coil, best of both worlds

    As wicking goes, I always lay down the battery/clearo so its always wet, Haven't had an issue yet.
