    Just a reminder...
    You get a double entry in the roll when you post the list. You can post a list once in 24h.

    You can identify/discuss as many times a day as you wish. The first to identify a specific issue gets a single entry in the roll.

    So far for #7
    choderfett has found 2 issues, this gives him one entry.
    DonBaldy identified an issue, one entry.
    So619Cal identified one.

    Who posts the list of all 4 issues we are looking for gets 2 enteries.

    For anybody ( @So619Cal ) askin about that 200w vape. Here's my current and legitimate workhorse. 1547212452893319376195.jpg I am so lovin my new Laisimo F4. All 4 brand new batteries were able to get me through a 12 hour shift and then some. And yes, that is the same tank/coil combo run in the challenge and I am hittin at the max wattage (350w) of the coil. For now. Then it will be back at 100w on the new mesh/strip coils I recently bought. Not as hot as I thought it would be though.

    #1. The top is open so its leaking.
    #2. The tanks coils require way more power than that mod can deliver.
    #3. Mod is in temp control but the coils are Kanthal.
    #4. The mod has an internal battery. Assuming a 20S in there is wrong.

    Subjective:
    Goldslagger usually has gold flakes in it?

    Oh I know people vape high wattages, heck I used to vape .10Ω and lower on single 18650 mechs... I just look where I am now compared to then and I have a giggle.

    I remember buying a Wismec triple battery something long ago and was all OOH AHH 120w with my original goon...then I went outside with it and sold it the next day lol

    Was a quick learning experience for me and I laugh about it truly...Now I have home mods and out and about mods, right tool for the situation.

    I in no way judge how one vapes, unless its careless, then I generally say my peace and walk away.

    No matter the mod/atty combo, its still better than analogs ;)

    I just assumed it leaked out of the airflow onto the table.

    I also assumed it was leaking with the puddle its sitting on and from the first photo the juice level looks just slightly less than the next two. There seems to be some drop along side the tank and mod.. its not super obvious but we could all be wrong

    Lol I took no offense at all. I typically dont go past 120 mark on anything else I own, but every now and then I get a bug to reach the limits. Maybe one day I will find my combo and tone it down a bit. I still got some learnin to do.

    Correct. That leak was meant to be from the airflow. Although I doctored it up a bit by just squeezin juice out the bottle on the side on purpose.

    1. at the given .13Ω and going by "CDR" (Simple safety, I truly detest CDR) its 32.31a(before sag) , so a tad above the rating... although Mooch did test these at much higher amperage and safe temps, he said its true "CDR" is 30a (Using the HB2 not HG2 as reference, HG2 is only a 15/18a battery and also brown and not adequate for the application)

    While I can agree with that, I was more thinking the lines of the threads, contact etc...

    First picture you can see the button housing threads look as some attention is needed, and the hybrid disc has gunk in the one hole... the patina isn't really bothersome ;)

    Who knows, could be shadowing... me I'd be polishing it and scrubbing the threads clean then adding a tad bit of corrosion inhibitor.

    1. Not an LG HG2, its an an LG HB2. What SoCal said, not the right battery for that application.
    2. Holes in the positive terminal of the battery.
    3.Coils are horribly unevenly spaced apart. Could affect ohm load.
    4. Dirty, very dirty. Copper battery terminal looks oxidized and corroded. Could affect the ohm load.
    5. Somebody dip that thing in some Oxyclean with bleach. Its not remotely white. More like ivory.

    I thought it was Nah Lins?

    Naw'lin -

    Its suspect, but the 510 is really close to the negative threads of the atty... but no other reason to have that part the focal of the photo

    Wow. Still on this one huh? Its been all work, work, work over here. Fortunately that is calming down.

    I am going to whip up an extra special edition one for the next one. Lets get this one solved so we can have some fun. I am going to start pondering on a double patty poo sandwich.

    Not sure the bottom magnetic switch would make good contact with the battery, the head of the screw that holds that switch together looks like it is covered with rust.
    Coil wires all squished together on the top will undoubtedly be full of hot spots.
    Whole mod just looks like it needs serious cleaning.
    I'd also agree that the 510 pin won't work properly. If it compresses in the slightest, the battery would come into contact with the 510 pin housing, and thus the frame of the tank.

    Last try. Looks like coil on the left has more wraps than coil on the right. For .13 ohm there should be 5 wraps in each coil.

    Upon second look, maybe not. Coil on the right looks like it may be touching the post, though. On my laptop it's really hard to see close-up details.

    It looks like the same gauge to me. Things I do see, though, leg lengths of coils are all over the place. Right coil is way uneven, one short and one long leg. Don't know if that has an effect on the coil performance, though.

    What is it that's obstructing the wire on the lower coil leg of the right-hand coil?
