    Okay, so one last post, and then im enjoying Candy...

    Well without a manual its hard to advise exactly. But on a number of tc mods, you will initially go into watts mode, set the watts there (and that becomes your "watts ceiling" for tc mode) and then go into tc mode (its how for example most Smok mods do it).

    As for preheat 0 being off, one would hope so, again, no manual, its just guesswork.

    Hopefully i eventually make some on here

    Glad you seem to have it working, a good wipe of the 510 socket and pin is worth doing every coil change or so, those other points i made about the coils are still valid, you may have to fiddle initially or even with every coil change to get where you like your vape, but once you get there, you should be okay. I still dont know why after x generations of coils, Uwell arent just making them fully 316L...it would be less work for them....no welding of dissimilar metals etc....if you get bored, look down the barrel of a coil, you can see the joints in the different wire types

    Do you still get a good vape if you set it 210 or 215? I'd be inclined to back it off just a little, as long as it's still producing good vapour.

    The real benefits to TC come if they wick is not keeping up or the liquid level is too low. You'll notice that the vapour drops off but it never starts to taste burnt. Those are the two thing to always check if the vapour drops off - the 510 connector and the liquid level.

    I will get to watch Uncle Buck, but you keep bringing up things where i have Crown tips

    Which version of the Crown are you on? the latest v3

    Definitely on the Crown v1 and its 3 generations of coils, wicking/dry hits was an issue. People came up with ways to try and deal with this, including taking a pin and through the side juice holes poking the needle in several times, and also from the top, down the middle of the wall of cotton. This was believed to alleviate some part of the fact those coils were wicked with very tight cotton. Another trick was to get the coil and apply juice to the juice holes and soak it at each port, or even put the coil on say a bit of cling wrap and squirt juice on the ports one at a time and then a bit extra juice on the cling wrap and sit the coil in the juice pool on its side juice hole down to absorb at its own pace, before using. Not sure if those practices are still valid for the Crown v3 coils, certainly from reviews i was led to believe they were improved.

    A somewhat universal sometimes fix for dry wick/dry hits is primer puffing - which is taking several short sharp toots on the driptip, without firing, to encourage juice to wick into the coil. This can be done any time you feel its getting dry. For initial wicking you should always first prime the coils with at least letting them sit in the tank for a good 5-10 minutes before firing, primer puffing before firing the first time is also valid.
