    Mate, hate to be the bearer of bad news but the Kylin is notorious for issues you describe. V2 was no better, mine was consigned to a nearby dam as it drove me to madness. Hopefully someone on the forum may have a fix for you. If not, smashing into little pieces with a 4 pound hammer is guaranteed to induce a Zen like state of mind.

    That wasy first rebuildable too. Went through juice like crazy and leaked for attention.
    Try to not let the wick touch the base after priming the wick with juice. Other than that... Good luck!

    Thinning out cotton is over rated. I never thin out my cotton. No leaks and dry hits on any tank. Only mesh get a trim. So nice it has been fixed! Good luck with the rta man have fun :)

    There was an issue with the first decks on the Kylin V1s that have been reported by many people across the interwebs.

    Many moons ago (when I had one of these) I wrote to Vandy Vape, informing them of this issue and how many people are experiencing it. They then sent me an updated deck at no charge which resolved the issue :).
