    @Lightbringer if I can help by chipping in as I have both, the expromizer is MY personal go to from the two but if its idiot proof you want then I would say the brunhilde. I personally find the brunhilde a little more forgiving on wicking but it indeed gives me a very dense and tasty vape especially with tobaccos and desserts. Not as smooth as the expro but good indeed.

    Hi. I'm assuming that the rba's are for the voopoo pods, considering their proximity to them. I was on the fence the other day about getting myself some, but then I saw your pic. I decided that seeing as you had a few, that they must be decent to use.

    Long story I bought some, but I see my o-rings are red and not green like yours. I got the Voopoo Pnp RBA's but what are the ones you have then? I wicked my first one today and taste wise I'm surprisingly happy with flavour, but it does give me a slight burning sensation in my throat. Think I might have used too little cotton and it is slowly burning, though I don't get a burnt taste.

    The ones my wife uses are the Wotofo SMRT coils (thus the green orings), they work perfect in the Voopoo pods. Get yourself some of those rather, they are easy to build and the flavor is pretty darn good.

    Hi @Lightbringer

    I have both and enjoy both daily

    The Expro (I have the V4) is a beautiful tank. Smooth and silky draw. Great flavour. Wicking - you need to make it thin and not stuff the deck, so that takes a bit of trial and error. Amazing and reliable. No leaks whatsoever. The drawback is the small tank size - only 2ml

    The Brunhilde is very easy to wick - make it thick and put lots of wick on the deck (so the juice coming up the steel rods easily gets to the wicks). Gorgeous fuller and more dense flavour - but that's because the action is happening right under the driptip. Love the flavour of the Brunhilde. The drawback for me is that you need to tilt the tank every now and then to get the wicks saturated. Lovely tank. It does guzzle juice so even though its more tank capacity than the Expro, it probably gets empty at the same time ;-)

    Both are good and I recommend both

    Pit stop in progress.... Damn I sometimes miss my Reos and Rda's. So much easier to clean and wick rda's than rta's :facepalm: and there's still 5 other rta's that's not being done today :rolleyes: I have way too much gear, lol, but it does help cut pit stop frequencies.

    Watched a Youtube video of those. Does look easy to work with and not a pain in the butt. Only problem is I lean more towards MTL vaping and generally prefer the 0.60ohm pnp coils. The Wotofo SMRT coils look like they are for DL and the 3 options don't come close to the 0.60ohms I like. It's a great pity as they really do look like something I would be able to handle wicking wise.

    Edited to fix typing error.

    Sorry quick question. I have been reading up at these coils on the forums, and I see you said your wife uses these with 18mg nic at 50/50. How does she like these for her MTL juice, and which mesh does she use and what wattage?

    She uses the Chill only, does not like the other two at all (and kills the other two in 3 days). The Chill lasts her 5 to 7 days each (she runs 4 devices with it in).

    It works perfectly fine with the MTL juice, need a bit of daily maintenance as the "thinner" juice does tend to seep through the bottom from day 3 onwards. But no serious leaking involved.

    0.2ohm at 35W it keeps up with her needs and with her juice.

    Just to add, its freebase Nic she uses, not Nic Salt, I wont recommend salt at those ohms and power at all.... and be afraid, be very afraid, it kicks like a donkey on steroid laced carrots...

    11 rta's in total that need wicking... :facepalm: with 4 of them still soaking. Damn, sometimes I miss the simplicity of squonking.

    Untill the pit stop is complete these two will have to do some duty

    Don't you ever get parts of similar attys mixed up? I always keep one atty's spares in one container, usually a drinking glass, to make sure it's that particular atty's spares.

    I usually buy different colour renditions when I buy more than 1 of the same atty so no risk of confusion except with my Recurves which have the same deck but different caps ;)
