Kanger pro tank wick
Does anyone know what size the original wick is in the kanger pro? I've been trying to rebuild a head for it but never quite got it right, either burning or flooding. I've used various sizes of ecowool and have now ordered some normal sillica to try.

looks like 2.5 or maybe 3m silica.I have used 3m silica to rewick mine,no burning or flooding.Same shit metallic taste though.No getting rid of that.

The shit metallic taste is due to you using 3mm wick try 2mm it works great.

Cheers. So if I put some 2.5 normal sillica you reckon it will be ok? Without those loose top wick things.

2.5 and 3 mm gave dry hits to much wick 2mm works perfectly just fluff up the ends.

Ok cool, like I said I'm using ecowool style wick. Would this make a difference?

its not dry hits im getting.Im not getting a burnt coil taste.its wicking fine,pg juice.I think its the material the tank is made out of thats causing the bad metallic taste.Protank is exactly the same.
