Hi Ho @Silver suggested a Serpent Mini 22 and 25 Build Thread where all tips and tricks for this outstanding Wotofo Tank range can be kept. Here is the current Serpent Mini Team! All credit (from my side) must go to @BigGuy who put me on the straight and narrow with these tanks. I was on the verge of never using RTA's again and then the SM25 arrived and Craig built and wicked it before the Courier Guy delivered it. I will put links to the YouTube video at the bottom of this post... Rule number one is to use Cotton Bacon or The Cotton Candy Collection for you wick... both just seem to be perfectly suited to RTA's and are both easy to use. Rule number two is to use the bow tie trimming method clearly explained in the videos below but in a nutshell you trim the tail from the coil side to the tails and remover between a third to half of tail... I have found removing the little wick ring off the deck works better for me... Now placing the wicks into the juice channels... Most of my SM's I let the tail touch the bottom of the juice channel and lightly pack the juice channels with the wick. However I have experimenting with shortening and fluffing the wicks to rest at the top of the juice channel... Grimm Green wicks the SM22 like this and I'm testing it on the SM25 and it seems to be working fine as well. Another lesson learnt recently is to double check and remove and replace O-Rings... even if they look OK... my Gold SM22 dumped juice (like Hi Ho Silver experienced) as I filled it... I checked everything and thought I had a lemon and was sad... but happily @BigGuy popped around for coffee and a chin wag and the first thing he did was remove the O-Ring on the base and check it... it was OK and he put it back and all was well again... Another tip when filling the tank is to go slow with replacing the top juice fill cap... if you go too fast you can create a bit of pressure in the tank and you may get some leaking... going slow give the tank time to equalise the pressure and no leaking. I have subsequently bought the Gold SM22 and revived my old silver SM22 which I wasn't using and with the new wicking techniques they are both performing admirably! An interesting quote from @Jasonjardine07 that may be worth a try... "I thought I was going to have to sell my SM 25 because I kept getting leaks and dry hit no matter how I wicked it. I probably wicked this thing 30 times before changing to a 5 wrap 3mm alien build with the wicks just resting on the Juice channels.... And I must say this thing is amazing and I cant get over how intense the flavour is."
