katana newb

Post  Inigo_Montoya on Wed Jan 30, 2013 1:14 am

The Katana is my first try with vaping, ecigs, etc. So far so good. I'm glad I checked in with reddit to find you guys. Fast shipping, cool device, great price. I guess I have a few questions:

Are there any parts I need to keep an eye on to replace?

Do you have to clean anything regularly?

I bought a dojo tobacco flavor that I am currently using now, and I also bought a dojo vanilla flavor. Can I switch flavors once they are completely run out of the katana on the fly? Like I said, I'm a newb, I really have no idea if this is obvious. I don't have a problem using all the tobac flavor first, but when I want to try the vanilla, do I need to buy new wicks, etc.?

Thanks.

Awesome! We appreciate it.

The only part that needs replacing is the clearomizer. It should probably last you about a month.

As far as the vanilla and tobacco juices are concerned, you do not have to clean the tank. In fact, those two juices mixed should taste pretty good. Maybe try a half tank of tobacco and a half tank of vanilla for a vanilla-tobacco blend. :-)

I picked up a Katana Kit as a second new toy to help quit smoking coffin nails. I saw my Dad blowing blowing out a monster thunder cloud, that had me wanting that playfull side from smoking that I missed. I had a weak little cigg looking kit, that had to be refilled allday long. and the cloud size was based on lung power/time to draw the vapors. He gave me a VapeDojo business card and sent me to the Vape Dojo site, and today I'm now 16days free from tabacco!with out a desire to go back.
And Im now already wanting to customize my Katana before I grab a bigger battery to tune! But unsure of what the best compatable items to pick for the katana.. i did alot of reading threw the forums and reading threw all the reviews on the clearomizers/tanks before coming out to ask cause there really isnt much info out there on the limits of the Kustom Katana Kits.

So now i want to hear lots of input on the Katana Kit, for the next "new Katana owner" to find...
I even want to see PICs of your custom Katana!

- what ohms would be best used in the Vivi Nova on the Katana's 650 mAh battery... and can the nova skirt fit within the build still.
- what ohms is the head inside the CE4 clearomizer that comes in the Katana kit. (burns threw juice so fast imo)
- what tanks are not recomended (on the Katana battery..)
- what ohms would be best for cross mixing clearomizers/tanks/cartomizers (on the Katana battery)
- has anyone used cartomizers on the Katana battery.. ( what does that look like? lol)


@--/------- A flower for the lady vapper's out there.

Hello DarthVaper,

In regards to you`re questions the katana kit if pretty basic, the CE4 Tank it comes with is a one time use and throw away tank. The ohms inside those are 2.4 (+/-1).

1.8 ohms would give you alot warmer vape and a little bigger cloud because it burns alot faster than a 2.4 or 2.8 head would.

what tanks are not recomended (on the Katana battery..) ---- All of are tanks we have in stock right now are all compatible with the katana battery.

- what ohms would be best for cross mixing clearomizers/tanks/cartomizers (on the Katana battery)---- IMO... I like low Ohms just my preference I like the warmer vape off a 1.8 head, I say try them yourself and see how you like it... Plus there only $1.99 Razz


anyother questions, just send em away..... cheers

so.. my family stopped by my house.. my auntie and little sister both bought my 2 spare Katana kits... i bought 3 so i could have 2 to swap between and 1 for a emergency replacment or a b-day gift maybe. i guess the katana is spreading faster then i thought.. i just got the kits... i didnt even finish threw the first battery cycle of my katana before they wanted my back ups lol...

Thanks for some clarity on the nova/katana ohms.. i like the warm hits too.. but ill get to try the other heads as well when my new shipment gets here..

I should avoid using the 2.8 on the katana right? untill i got a higher battery source?

Yea 2.8 is alot higher of resistance, if you have a variable voltage device it would be fine.

Basics for ohms to volts.

The higher the ohms the higher your volts.

Variable voltage devices are great for those who vape many different ways - cartomizer - clearomizers - cartotanks - gennys(RBA's)

when using a low mah battery that puts out 3.7v or less, you will need to keep your ohms low to keep your vape "warm" as well as to keep your throat hit.

The katana that is sold by Dojo, is basically an ego with their logo. So it is a fairly low mah and volt device. So keep you ohms close to 1.8 for the vape that you're looking for...

refer to chart...

So my questions is about the clearomizer.
If I wanted to start a new flavor would I have to get a new clearomizer altogether?
Or after I finish the flavor I'm on now in the tank, could I just fill the current tank up with a different flavor without worrying about the flavors mixing?

You do not have to get a new clearomizer, however if the two flavors do not mix well then I recommend at least rinsing your tank out and letting it dry. I let mine soak in everclear when I get a flavor that I do not want to mix

You will be able to taste a little bit of the old juice in the new but sometimes it is a good thing and the flavors will enhance so just experiment

One More issue. There is the center pin issue. Every time I'm using it it ends up getting pushed down and i have to bring it back up. I've tried all different ways of twisting clearomizer down, not fully twisting it down, whatever, no matter what happens it just pushes the center pin down and stops working after a certain amount of time and i have to constantly lift the center pin over and over again..

Is there any permanent fix for me not to have to worry about this issue anymore?

Sounds like you need a new #60 o-ring under the post to keep it raised up.

Now another new problem. The center pin is fine now but now it keeps gurgling and leaking. I understand this is a common problem with CE4 clearomizers, but i am experiencing leaking over and over again T___T. I do the fix that involves blowing out into the clearomizer into a tissue, and taking a paper towel and clearing out the battery of the e-liquid leakage as well as wiping up the bottom of the clearomizer yet i always get the same problem after i put it back together and take another 2-3 pulls. I need a fix for this other than, get a new clearomizer. T_____T.

I have noticed this as well with my c4's, the fact of the matter is unless you are willing to disassemble the entire device and replace all of the o-rings that have worn out you will have to just say that it is toast.  They are not designed to last forever.
