    Hi there everyone.

    So i got the Vandy Vape Mesh Rda on Saturday and i built it with the Kanthal mesh coil that is provided with the kit. For wicking I used the Cotton bacon v2( legit one, i've heard about the fake ones been sold). My problem is I am getting NO Flavour taste at all. I can definitely smell the flavour but the taste seems to be completely muted. The vape juice Im running is the Nostalgia Frosteez.

    Any help as to why this is happening?

    I've followed some videos on youtube on how to wick this. Also the mod is the Voopoo Drag. 20171113_210232.jpg 20171113_210150.jpg

    try the ni80 mesh. did you dry burn the mesh.
    you cotton looks a bit dry. it needs to be saturated with juice. that build probably takes like 2ml of juice.

    I first tried the SS mesh. I had the same issue, no taste at all. Then switched to the Kanthal. I just switched my juice over to litchi now so its saturated. I did dry burn the mesh but still getting a very muted vape. The clouds are nice though but its the flavour that i'm chasing :(

    Bad news is that you are going to struggle to get flavour from this RDA ..... mesh lacks in that department.
    Good news is that you will very quickly finish that juice you never really liked ........ this guy sucks juice like a true pro. :)

    Flavour is enhanced by restricted juice/air chamber, air that can push droplets from below, the correct build, and type of cotton to a lesser degree.
    To me this atty lacks in all areas but i could be wrong .... good luck.

    what ohm build do you have and wattage. these mesh builds need a bit more watts to get them going.

    I am planning to get a single coil and try that instead of the mesh coil. Do you think it will make a difference compared to the mesh coil?

    Like day and night if you planning on getting a totally different atty. :)
    You will experience a improved difference when using the same atty. The coil will still be too far away from the airholes.

    you need to up the wattage. i have a .3 build running at 65w. bump it up in like 5w increments. you not going to get hadaly like flavour but it does produce some decent flavour.

    Stupid question but have you tried the juices in another atty? ?? Possible that vapers tongue can be a foot... if you’re at your wits end perhaps shorten the mesh a bit which will require less wicking... over wicking can just be as much of an @$$ as under wicking :D

    Yes i have a SMOK baby beast brother and the flavour is great in there. Just coils are hard to come by for it.

    Edit : also a bit pricey :p

    Try normal coils in there and see if it makes a difference. The post slots can be used to hold normal coil leads as well
    Not a fan of this rda myself though.

    If you havent taken the build apart yet...try this...

    Up your wattage to about 100w and have a quick vape on it and see what happens.
    Dont vape it for too long as it could burn your cotton. maybe like a second or so.
    Then have another quick vape on it with the airflow turned down a little...
    Would love to see if this makes a difference.

    and you may want to cut the mesh in half... don't use the full width. still use a similar lengthy of cotton.

    A few friends of mine have this RDA, and whilst I can provide no help / recommendations. I can say that with the mesh they're getting good flavour from it,gave it a go myself.
