    Not sure if the Grey Cerakote AF base and top does this engraving justice, don’t get me wrong it looks fantastic but a OG Stainless Steal AF base and top would better suite this engraved Dvarw. Silver + Silver, Gold, Black + Silver will be money

    It's not Cerakote... @hands did a chemical treatment on it... he was hoping for it to come out darker... but I do get what you are saying.

    Apologies Rob, thought it was one of the tanks from Germany. Also pics vs in hand would also add to the effect like the time your Red Drip Tip looked orange.

    It’s not a big deal, think I have just been drooling over your 1st engraved Dvarw for such a long time and that one is so classy that I’ve become biased.

    The Dvarw is almost complete in my opinion, if they could redo the deck to maybe postless or something else it's would be perfect

    If they just increase the post size, and then make a slot for wire to go through... Then it's all done :)

    Yesterday my Dvarw leaked a bit out the air vent

    I left it overnight and i had vaped it empty. When i picked it up, there was juice down my minikin mod that had come from the airhole.

    Rewicked it and tried to use a bit more cotton (royal wicks) - so far so good - no leaking

    But this has happened two or three times before. Not often at all but enough to drive me crazy. Only happens when the tank is nearly empty and i leave it overnight

    My coil is a 2.5mm ID coil and i see that in order to get enough wick to plug up the juice channels i need to make it super tight - ie hold coil while threading wick through so it doesnt distort.

    @Rob Fisher , does this sound right to you? Or should i try a larger diameter coil - say 3mm?

    It is what happens if the tank is almost empty and left overnight. Also when the wick has been overused. You do get a bit of leakage (well I do) when I have used the same wick for a few days and the tank is close to empty.

    I also get it when the wick is "tired" - so I just re-wick every 3-4 days

    I store my RTA’s off the Mod and standing upside down at night to prevent over saturating the wicks when not in use.

    Have also experienced the odd dribble of eliquid on the Dvarw DL which happens after a few days on the same wick. The Dvarw MTL does not have this problem at all, I only change its wick every 2nd week or so.

    Thanks @Rob Fisher , @RenaldoRheeder and @CaliGuy

    Strange thing for me is that this has happened on new wicks - i.e. the first tankful.
    I always thought its because I didnt put enough wick in to plug those juice holes properly. I.e. if there is a smidgeon of space left then I guess the juice can go in and come out the bottom.

    It's not cool for me because I like to leave my mod and tank rigged up and ready to go in my camera bag at all times. I hear you @CaliGuy on turning it upside down - but havent ever done that on any mod.

    I think I need to experiment with a slightly bigger diameter. I think 3mm is too big. Wish I had a 2.75mm diameter screwdriver.... Will need to go looking in my stash and pull out my trusty vernier to take some measurements. Hopefully one of them is the right size and maybe that will help.

    Ah, was wondering when I read the posts above yours why I have never had any leaking from my Dvarws. Because they are all MTLs - I can underwrite your experience.

    @Silver i don’t think your leaking issue wicked related only. The Dvarw is very forgiving and it doesn’t matter if you use 3mm or 2.5mm coils there will be enough wick to close off the juice ports.

    When last did you replace O Rings on the chimney section, could be a worn out o ring allowing excess juice to seep past the chimney with some minor deck flooding and out the airflow.

    Thanks @CaliGuy !

    I havent changed the o ring
    But i havent dismantled the whole device often - and i actually havent used it all that much - so unless i may have done something wrong i doubt the o ring would have worn out from normal wear and tear

    Just a side note, my Subtank Mini has been in daily operation for a few years and i have yet to replace any o rings on it. I know they are different devices but that Subtank Mini is a soldier of note.

    Anyhow, perhaps you can show me which o ring you are referring to on the Dvarw and i will change it and see if the leaking happens again

    Thanks again for the suggestion, i appreciate it

    @Silver / I have used 3 and 2.5mm ID coils with no issues. I do wick quite "fat" through the holes and actually pull the wick back inside a bit to sit tighter in the juice holes. Only leaking that I had otherwise was when I did not wick tight enough through the juice holes

    @Silver this O Ring here. It gets a lot of punishment from fitting the chimney section down during a pit stop.
