    The o-rings on the afc ring can get funky. If you take it apart, inspect them, clean or replace if necessary all should be well after.

    Did you try looking at Fasttech? They usually have replacement glass tanks.

    The glass would be like $7 if in stock right... You could buy new Boreas kit on eciggity for $16, they come with spare glass

    The glass probably won't work for the v1 boreas but the v2 boreas is starting to show up in shops now.

    Unfortunately it looks like you are screwed. I looked around and found the same thing, out of stock.

    To be honest, and I love my boreas, you might be better off getting a supreme. The supreme looks like it has more airflow anyways.

    nice, I ordered glass for some of my other tanks but I don't think I ever got around to ordering glass for all my boreas tanks. thankfully I haven't broke any of them yet so at least I have the spare that came with each of the 7 tanks I bought.

    I still have 4 in regular rotation, and I believe 3 more down stairs in the stash.

    The OG Boreas is ALL Stepdot uses. Out of 300 different atties I own and have let her try, it's the only one she returns to. She has 2...

    Spare Boreas DT's I would have since I use Merlin DT's on 3 of the 4, but I only use the decks with the 2.5mm juice flow holes so I don't have spares of those.

    I drilled all the small holed decks out on mine. never erally saw a difference, but since I normally use high VG juice it made sense.

    I swapped my Boreas for a v2... This thread gives me much regret.

    Has anyone seen the v1 at any online stores?

    eciggity still had them last time I looked. I have a cart loaded up there full of squonk gear but I may end up grabbing another couple boreas v1 for the stash as well.

    I checked them earlier - I saw someone mentioning them earlier. They only have the silver one, would be nice to have one of both though. And I now see they don't ship to my country either. I will hunt some more then. Thanks @fozzy71

    Still use my OG Boreas in the warmer months. She makes it out on Sunday's sometimes, when the Vikings are playing.

    OG Boreas is still my everyday tank(s). Ordered a few more from eciggity with their black friday sale and ive officially lost count of how many I have. Has to be in the mid to upper teens by now. I still cant believe how cheap they are even off sale

    I'm after the gold AFC ring, if anyone wants to sell me one can you pm me please, I will of course pay 5 times what you paid for it ;)

    Or I would be willing to swap it for my custom tank sleeve and drip tip everyone has seen.

    I can always get another set, not the case with the gold ring.

    My ex stole mine :(

    Not a happy chappy

    On better news, Happy 1st December to y'all, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas.

    Yea when i decide to get a RTA its between this one and the smok TF-RTA G2 version cause i like the baby beast i got, basically the deciding factor will be which one seems to be easier to build on and does the boreas have a juice flow valve. But since I don't really have money to spend right now on an RDA to start doing beginner builds cause its easier to start with those someone from here is donating me one and some supplies to start building with! :inlove:

    I think the boreas RTA is going to win when i buy one because its looking easier to build on and it comes with 2 decks plus its got that flow valve i wanted it to so I think its a winner you also have to fill it less often than the smok TF-RTA only thing about that RTA swivel top which I really like idk if the boreas has that

    Edit: it does have a top fill valve you just gotta screw off the top i definitely think the boreas has won

    Good luck with that. I bought 2, used one, and could never get it to stop leaking. Vaped great until it all leaked out on your mod/hands. Now those sit in the stash while I have 4 boreas in daily rotation and 3 more stashed.

    Yep, same here, seemed to be press fit issues, slow seepage, always found a juice-slime puddle under the tank. Don't waste your money on the Gemini

    I just like the dual air flow and the fact that it has air flow holes pointed right at the coils from the center post

    Where exactly did it leak from like the coil deck or the Air flow valve? and basically I think the solution for that is when it's not in use always shut the juice flow valve if you could you should try that with a small amount of liquid and see if it still does it if you close the valve maybe It'd solve the problem

    yeah, that is what put both my billow v3 plus out of commission as well. though for me with the gemini it is possible it was my wicking since I use rayon but I got too many tanks in the stash to deal with a finicky tank. I have 4 RTA in rotation today, all 4 are boreas v1. The wicking on those guys with rayon is dead simple.

    You'd be must better off getting a Aromamizer Supreme V2 if you don't fancy the Boreas. Much better off !

    Griffins are the same style of RTA right? I have had a bunch of griffins, some clones some authentic, my griffin 25 I've had forever is holding up pretty well on the seepage issue
