    Hi everyone. I recently bought an ohmega alpha one rta. Any ideas what's the best way to wick it so it won't leak? Juice flow holes r huge on it and the first time I wicked...literally juice ran right out of it.

    Your coil should have a nice big ID. I'd say 3mm or so... get your wicks nice and fluffy. Cut them at the very base of the juice well. With the chimney on you should see the tails. Then I take my juice bottle and press a vertical line in the middle of the wick hanging in the channel to make sure the juice has somewhere to go. Make sense?

    Excellent! Battery life for days too! I love that I can run a single fused clapton at 40 watts and get huge flavor and clouds with that guy.

    I'm running 50w with a 60w preheat....it's great. Has an alien clapton in it.

    I feel like I blew it...alien clapton...alien themed tank...and it's not on my alien
