How to Insert the Tank or Change the Coil

How to Fill the Tank

Using the device

Make sure to charge the battery before use as some batteries may not be fully charged out of the box. Follow figs.1-6 below for full set up instructions. After filling your tank a new coil may flood due to priming or, a few times, as it beds in. This can cause gurgling or a bit of leakage from the airflow. To clear this hold the device (like a fishing rod) and flick (fig. 10) down sharply (in a whipping motion) a few times, this will clear any excess liquid and prevent gurgling and leaking.

Finger-tight only: The VIM is a precision engineered device, so you don’t need to be He-Man when tightening parts, finger-tight is enough for all threads overtightening may cause damage.

Notes on coils 

Coils should be changed regularly, coils can last a long time, but research has shown over time build up on the coil can cause unwanted substances in higher numbers, so we advise changing a coil every 7-10 fills, to maintain the best possible taste and emissions. This applies to all coils.

Coil life will vary dependent on many factors, the type of eliquid used, some flavours reduce coil lifespan as do certain bases, even similar flavours from different manufacturers dependent on ingredients. You should always get at least 7 fills though.

New coils should be primed prior to use, to prime a coil place a few drops on each wicking hole, and then 2 drops down the coil centre from the top. Priming the coil allows the wicking process to begin and prevents dry hits or coils burning out quickly. This is particulalrly important with high VG or pure VG liquids. See fig.2

If you over prime a coil you will flood the device, if this happens flick the device sharply (fig.10) a few times, this willl clear any excess liquid. With a new coil you may need to do this a few times as it beds in.

Coil Characteristics:  By changing the coil, you can change how the tank performs:

1.0Ω MTL S-Coil – uses less e-liquid and battery capacity, allows discrete vaping, warmer vapour – similar to a cigarette.

0.7Ω TURBO MTL S-coil (SS316L)- uses more eliquid and battery, more flavour and vapour for MTL, not as resilient (do not run dry) - similar to a cigarette

0.42 Ω TURBO MTL S-coil (SS316L)- uses even more eliquid and battery, max flavour and vapour for MTL, cannot dry burn - similar to a cigarette

1.0Ω DL S-Coil – cooler vapour, bigger clouds, uses more e-liquid, more hit from the nicotine and more battery drain.

0.5Ω DL S-Coil – cooler vapour, max clouds, max e-liquid, max nicotine hit and max battery drain.


• Ensure that your battery has enough remaining charge to operate. 

• Ensure that your tank is filled with a suitable quantity of e-liquid. 

• Squeeze the power button with either your palm or lower fingers (Fig. 11), while at the same time inhaling through the mouth tip. 

• When you are finished inhaling, release the power button and exhale. 

• Use the adjustable airflow to tailor the tightness of the draw to your liking. 

• If you experience any gargling flick the device sharply to clear (fig.10)
