Is the airflow all the way open?It's a Wotofo Freak Show 22mm.
I find dripping on the cotton while tilting the mod so the juice flows down into the coil works well and prevents a lot of spitting that would be caused from dripping directly on the coil.. Freakshow has very small airflow holes, even wide open it's a pretty tight draw. Great first RDA if you are just graduating from premade M2L coils.I put a fresh battery with a full charge in the mod and it is doing fine now.I was getting a dry hit on the 2nd pull after i had dripped on the cotton.
Good reading you've seemed to correct the problem. Please allow me a minor suggestion. You may want to keep a .50 clearance in the top part of the coil. Here's a quick text picture looking through the coil from an end.I rewicked it with a different type of cotton and cut the cotton a little shorter and it is doing fine now!
