    I haven't found you need to be that careful wicking the Blotto. The wick hole is pretty big and I just fluff and stuff the wick in with a quick check that I can still slide the tip of my tweezers in. As for wick length, so long as the juice can get under the wick to the tips, length is not that important either.

    From what I read, there are many ways to wick it. I guess it's a case of finding your own version.

    Too true. I guess I've found a wicking method that works for me, quick and dirty and I don't have to think about it. That and the flavour make the Blotto a winner for me.

    I think it's a, brief, problem quite a few Blotto owners suffer.

    I love the vape, hate it's looks. Well not really "hate" it just looks more like the old metal dust bins I grew up with, coupled with the standard glass, than the neck of a beer bottle. I can't really put my finger, on it, but it just doesn't hang together looks wise, for me.
    Won't stop me using it continuously, though.

    That's great to hear, thank you. :)

    Encourages me to carry on working at it until I perfect the build which I'm sure won't take much time. Even as a beginner it really isn't that hard to build on this tank.

    Yeah. It isn't the sleekest RTA. You have to go for the more casual look.

    I've had mine now for a couple of months. I'll echo what many have mentioned so far in that it is easy to set up anf gives good flavour. I haven't tried it in dual coil mode but use a single 3mm id alien coil and it is actually pretty good on juice consumption of that's a worry. Haven't had any problems that have been mentioned thus far but could have just been lucky. Overall very happy with the purchase

    Lol. Yeah. Though I find swapping to the clear glass, help with light colour or chrome mods. Lol, putting it on a Mech, makes it look like a cheerleaders Baton.

    The Snowwolf looks like a coffee machine.

    the Minikin looks plain daft. Or like some 1960's Dr Who baddie.

    but it looks good, if you ignore the facile mod graphics, on the VK530.

    None of my whinging detracts from the fact it's a really great RTA, and well worth the beer voucher it costs.

    I've just given up on my Blotto and ordered another Rebirth to replace the one I lost. Maybe I just suck at building but the Blotto always tastes like it's on the edge of dry hitting and the flavour is muted. Tried to persevere with it but I think the Rebirth is miles better myself.
