Title: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on October 31, 2017, 04:19:25 PM
Just got it in the mail today.  I DID A BUILD ON IT!!!  And now I'm vaping on it!!! :]=] :]=] :]=] :]=] :]=]
 
Tore it apart first, learned this from Darth, but couldn't get the chimney/bell out so I could put in the extended chimney and tank.
 
That's my first bitch, couldn't get the bell out. x} x} x}
Second bitch, short tank means warm vape.  I can't do multiple vapes without it getting too hot for me to enjoy.
Third and final bitch, it has a tiny build deck, BUT I BUILT ON THAT SONOFABITCH!!!!!
 
I just wished one of you guys lived closer so you could verify that I've done everything possible to try to remove that damn chimney!!! x} x} x}

Glad to hear you sorted out the hot vape part... seems a lot of atties these days are just too damn short.

It was just me needing to keep my lips out of the air path. x} x} x}
 
Yes, to comply with the EU requirements, too freaking small.  Just glad I don't live there.  I don't mind filling up once-in-a-while, but 2ml is silly. x:)x x:)x x:)x x:)x

Post by: FahKingNut on November 01, 2017, 01:31:01 AM
On my initial first few hour of vaping with it, adequate clouds for a MTL, vape can be hot if you get your lips in the airway, and I'm not getting a full flavor vape.  It doesn't suck, but compared to the Nautilus and the Kayfun V5 it comes in 3rd place.  Still, I'm glad to have another MTL that isn't a Nautilus - just tired of the same thing every day. :()() :()() :()()

The Berserker comes with a drip-tip that is the diameter of a cigarette.  With most drip-tips I would just press it in between my lips and vape, not bothering to keep them out of the air path.  With the Berserker, as with a lot of 2ml tanks, is to press my lips all the way against the base of the drip-tip, and that naturally keeps my lips out of the path of the hot vapors and thus, no problem.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on November 03, 2017, 12:33:10 AM
I don't mean to sound like I dislike the Berserker.  It's very good, only have to keep it sitting upright, or else it tends to leak a little.  I'm not certain where it is coming from, but I'm pretty sure I need an O-ring around the top filler cap.  I just have been using the damn thing 24/7, it gives good vape!  Seems to use more juice than the Nautilus. :()() :()() :()()

I swapped out the 2ml tank for the 4ml tank.  I don't need to fill it every 5 minutes, but the flavor has taken a heavy hit.  Gonna swap back to the 2ml when this one is empty.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on November 06, 2017, 02:47:10 AM
2 ml tank put back on, flavor restored.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: Darth Vaper on November 06, 2017, 09:07:37 PM
That don't sound right Rik... shoudn't be any difference in flavor with the tank size.

The coil is where the flavor is at.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: CYBORG on November 06, 2017, 10:07:22 PM
 Is it the same bell over the coil with 4ml? If the bell part is bigger that would make a difference.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on November 07, 2017, 01:05:28 PM
There are two different bells.   The shorter one gives better flavor.  I'm guessing it's 'cause the vapor is warmer when it hits the mouth, shorter distance and all.  The taller bell for the 4ml conversion leaves a cooler vape with somewhat muted flavors in comparison.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: Darth Vaper on November 07, 2017, 07:19:37 PM
Ok the flavor difference makes sense then... mostly it's how the air flows over the coil... better yet through the coil.... if it has too much room from the air intake point it wont fully immerse the coil in air.

The tighter the space the more likely the coil will get a full blast of fresh air all around it.... rather then over it... or just partially hitting it.

It's why the Kayfuns are sooo tasty... the air intake hole is in the center... it passes right through the center of the coil and the bell is a tight space. So the incoming air goes completely around both sides of the coil. There are no hot spots in that method ... the coil heat and vapor production is uniform around the entire coil.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on November 08, 2017, 02:35:40 AM
Still might go back to the 4ml later, but I'm sticking to the 2ml for now.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: vapingfool on November 11, 2017, 12:39:56 AM
When you go back to the 4 ml tank - boost the wattage a bit and see if that restores the taste and vapor temperature.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on November 11, 2017, 04:04:53 AM
I'm only at 14 Watts, so the coil should be able to hold-up to some bumping up. 
 
I think of these things, but forget to ask you guys, so I end up looking stupider than normal. x} x} x}

Gotta say, "I like the Beserker more than the Siren."  Beserker is a bit more "airy" than I like.

Actually the Beserker is fine, the Siren was too airy.  Shelved the Siren 'cause it leaked and spotty vapor.  Going back to the Beserker was like seeing an old friend, nice and smooth.

Both of them will be shelved once you figure out the Prime.  ;)

You might be right, but I'm enjoying the Beserker right now.  I might even try the 4ml tank again, but I might give the Prime a go again tomorrow, just gotta have a "less shakey" day. :()() :()() :()() :()()

Also, Caz, for a RTA, this atty is a total MTL.  With pre-made coils you could master this in no time.  Just saying.  It is a *VERY GOOD* MTL atty. x:)x x:)x x:)x x:)x

I just had to post this:  I pulled out the old burned out coil, wrapped a new one, inserted the new coil, wicked it, soaked the wick, tested, reassembled the tank and was vaping in under five minutes!!!  Tomorrow I tackle the Kayfun Prime!!!   :)Y) :)Y) :)Y) :)Y)

New update - The Beserker leaks every time it is over half full.  I've done everything except make it sign a pre-nup, but the damn thing still leaks when over half full.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: caz on November 27, 2017, 09:18:19 AM
strange,  maybe its just a faulty one.  or its one of those tanks that if you dont wick it just right it leaks

I've even tried to reduce pressure when sealing the top-fill, but still nothing works.  When I get my retirement I'll probably order a new one.  Its an original, so I can't even say it's because it's a clone. x} x} x}
 
It's been the only thing I've been using, but may go back to the Siren MTL tank.  I need to do that damn Kayfun Prime, that's what I need to do, but can't even try until Wed, so one more day on hold.

Post by: beyonder on December 02, 2017, 10:19:48 PM
I've even tried to reduce pressure when sealing the top-fill, but still nothing works.

Assuming your wicking is good, do the flip. Tighten the cap until you feel the o-ring catch. Right after that flip it upside down and simultaneously tighten the cap all the way and wait couple seconds.
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA

No improvement.
 
The wife saw me wiping down the Beserker and she asked what I was doing it.  I said 'cause it leaks.  If it leaks, why use it?  'Cause it gives possibly the best vape that I vape.  Well, buy a new one when we get paid.  WHAT?  She said what???  My wife WANTS me to buy a new atty?  #@# #@# #@#

I don't know much about this tank, well nothing at all really but as well as trying the 'flip and tighten' technique(like beyonder suggested), try raising your coil a bit. It is leaking because juice is getting down the air hole somehow which is caused by either, not enough wick to soak up juice or your coil is too close to the air hole. I could be completely wrong but give both methods a try(do them separately to figure the problem out). 
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on December 07, 2017, 04:06:04 AM
I'll give it a go Ian, once I empty the tank.  It only leaks for a little while after I fill it, but from what you're saying sounds about right since I get some gurgling once I fill it.  Love this tank though!  Minus the leaking, I cannot fault it for anything else. w:)w w:)w w:)w w:)w
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: Ian on December 07, 2017, 09:44:15 AM
Well, I reckon if you follow Beyonder's advice on flipping it when screw the top back on, should solve the problem. I still think a wee bit more cotton should help too.
On a side note. Found this yesterday on Fasttech...i know nothing about it but it looks very familiar!!!

Ian - I've taken the thing as far apart as I can and done a complete clean, reassembled, lightly coated the O-rings with some e-juice, and will soon fill it and let it sit on a stand, checking a couple of times a day.
 
Caz - Thanks sweetie

LOL Rik you got me there.... All kidding aside I do hope you get on top of the leaking.

If it's any consolation I have been playing with cotton in my V5 .... I had a little puddle pants accident. Didn't have enough cotton in it... finding more and more it's a bit of a balance between just the right amount.... too little cotton leaks... too much cotton blocks the liquid from feeding.

I think I have the right amount of cotton 'cause vaping only gives me a dry hit if I'm trying to suck it dry.  I'm really starting to think that it is a pressure problem that I've got to resolve, as you guys have told me. :'( :'( :'(
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: Darth Vaper on January 02, 2018, 05:52:15 PM
Yeah the screwing it together part after you fill is best done upside down.. or the feed closed off.

Have you tried blowing it out into a tissue after you fill to get any excess out?
Title: Re: Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA
Post by: FahKingNut on January 02, 2018, 06:17:20 PM
I've already filled the tank twice and did the upside down thing with no leaks afterward.
 
Thank you all!
 
Now I can recommend this as the BEST MTL Atty!!!  No reservations!  Air control is very nicely controlled from a reasonable drag to sucking a golf ball through 20 feet of copper tubing!!!  The Siren V2 Mini is a close second IMHO, only 'cause it doesn't have as fine as the air control.  It's a damn good Atty, but second place in my book. :()() :()() :()()

Ian - I've got UD Organic Cotton.  Never had any problem with it before on builds.  It wicks enough to not get any dry hits.  I'm pretty consistant with my wicking, long enough to hit the bottom of the wells without having to cram it in there.

They insisted that the atty remain inverted.  I've done this each time, but never got anything out.
 
 
 
 
Don't dispair Darth, I'm certain if you work at it there will be something else you can fail at.

The first tank randomly leaks out the base, at the bottom.  The second tank has never leaked.  Just got around to rotating the first tank back in and there is no reason it should leak, the second one is great!  I'll probably try to find another one in the near future.  Just thought I'd update this with me trying to rotate the two. w:)w w:)w w:)w

Already did that Brother Darth!  All checks are good.  I think it's leaking at the bottom "press fit" area.  Just can't figure why it does sometimes and doesn't other times??? w:)w w:)w w:)w

The way the pressure builds up in some of these tanks when you close them up can cause some funky leak issues.

I never removed my top o-ring on the Prime... I just start the cap back on and flip it upside down to tighten the rest of the way... when done I keep it upside down and just open the liquid feed a little to release the pressure..... no leaks.

This is a top fill tank, but filling from the bottom leaves like zero pressure.  I even test the airflow up-side-down.  This one tank passes all of the tests and inspections.  I worked almost 20 years in Industrial Aerospace Inspection, using x-ray, ultrasonics, magnetic particle, and florescent penetrant to identify defects.  My personal record was viaually spotting a crace that was 0.007 of an inch.  This damn tank has no defects that I can find, it has to be inside that base, at the bottom.  No trace of leak on the sides, always on the bottom. x} x} x}

Is the 510 screw adjustable. Try giving that a little tightening. Could do the trick. Don't over tighten though, they easily break.

They're mostly brass, right?  I'll give that a shot!

Just from looking at a few googled pictures, it seems like the 510 screw is two parts. Remove the outer screw and tighten the inner screw. Then screw back in the outer screw. Don't over do the other screw, they are small and fragile.

I've gotta find my computer toolbox.  Not sure where it is since the apartment is in shambles from us getting ready to move into the RV, then me getting real sick, and skipping the whole RV thing.  There are boxes everywhere.  Needle in a haystack time.

I have finally given up on the Vandy Vape Beserker MTL RTA.  I have 3 of them.  The newest one I opened, built it, filled, vaped, and refilled and vaped it until I had to rebuild on it.  Once rebuilt, other than welding, it just won't stop leaking.  All 3 of them leak, exact same way, at the bottom, from the press-fit seam, and always after a rebuild.  Vandy Vape will rot in hell on a  festering pile of goat shit before they get another cent from me.

A turd is a turd is a turd is a turd.

99% of leaking in an RTA is usually because of wicking. Here's a few question Rik and maybe we can fix the issue.
1) Are you filling up(but not stuffing) the wicking channels. Unless there is a major fault, the juice is somehow getting past your cotton and getting into the airflow. If your using a small diameter coil, there will be less cotton to fill the juice channels.
2) Is the cotton hanging over or really close to the airflow under the coil. This is an issue with my Ammit 25. I have to make sure the cotton is nowhere near the airflow or it will leak.
3) Is the 510 on the bottom tight??. Try tightening the 510 but don't go crazy, some of these screws can break, then your fucked.
