Who is the gaucho amigo
When I needed new o-rings I just shot Stuart a email and he added a full set up of o-rings to the other order I was making, pretty sure it was no charge. I'd just contact AVS and ask about it!
@JCat Did this end up fitting for you? Im looking for a Bubbler that is in stock@PlanetVape has gotten back to me on this recycler, and indicated that the inner diameter is 20mm
So I've ordered one to try out (along with an Evic VTwo Mini ... I like these 1x18650 Joyetech mods ... they perform admirably with the M22 temp control w/ Arctic Fox, and are light enough that hanging off your bottomless banger isn't an issue)
On another note, I ordered a DTv4 Bottomless Banger from The Herb Cafe, and although the BB itself didn't fit on the M22 (it did upside down but not right side up), the bubble carb cap is a perfect fit for the M22 BB; so that's good The experience w/ the M22 with a directional carb cap is SO much better!!!!
And how do I go about fixing it without having to spend another $150 for a new atomizer that may only last me 2 months of strictly weekend use like this one?
I'd reach out to AVS at once... Sounds like a possible defective zirconia cup with possible collateral damage. Do this before you go any further.Yesterday, my M22 completely failed. I was using it just as I had many times before in TCR (138), set max watts to 50, and max temp to 500F. I am ocd about thoroughly cleaning after each use with distilled water and iso and certainly do not overload as I microdose concentrates (don’t want to mess up my tolerance).
In any case, as the the ESCC was heating, I heard a crack and immediately turned the mod off thinking maybe a battery burst. I let it cool down at a safe distance just in case. After ten minutes elapsed without a subsequent explosion, I removed and inspected the batteries. They were fine and intact.
I then disconnected the atomizer from the mod. I removed the ESCC crucible, which looked fine. Then I noticed that the white base had browned and cracked. This part was also clean before use so I don’t understand how it would have charred if nothing spilled. The fact that the material broke is very disconcerting as I am a low temp dabber. Definitely brings durability to question.
Luckily I ordered a non-TC ESCC as a backup and had a spare base. After cleaning the TC-ESCC and installing new gold plated connectors as further precaution, I reattached the atomizer to the mod. First, it read a really high resistance (1.2) and then it couldn’t read the atomizer at all. I screwed the atomizer into a different mod and again the “No atomizer found” error message appeared.
I disassembled everything. The connectors looked properly installed and fine, the ESCC legs were clean, no residue. I reassembled and ensured a solid fit. Still, no luck. Had the atomizer shorted and if so, how? And how do I go about fixing it without having to spend another $150 for a new atomizer that may only last me 2 months of strictly weekend use like this one?
Soon after emailing AVS, I decided to troubleshoot some more. It seems that the culprit for the inconsistent and high resistance readings was the spring clips. Some were looser than others so I went through a bunch until I found the ones that gave a cold ohm reading in the range of .5-1.1. The rest I pulled aside. Not sure what I’ll do with them, but I’m glad the rda is working once again.I'd reach out to AVS at once... Sounds like a possible defective zirconia cup with possible collateral damage.

Good to see a fellow UK member getting hold of the M22, I got a O.G version a while back from a US member and I just paid for the shipping. Can't grumble at that at all, cost me £25! I used that and that alone for 8 or more months even tho it was a thinner cup and liable to crumble/crack at any point, it served me very well and is still useable before like you @oddjobold i opted for the wattage SiC ESCC.Being in the UK I brought mine from recommend vapes. The deal was pay for a TC, get an OOS ESCC now and a TC ESCC later once the new batch comes in. Seems like a good deal.
I use 32w with the OOS in wattage mode. If I use 40W I melt my lungs and my face. The heat up is instant at 40w. Behaves like no other bucket I have ever tried, the taste is 2nd level. At 32w there is some heat up, but your gotta treat this thing with respect. To start with I had many coughing fits and aching lungs.
The whole M22 is quality. You feel where your money is going. I have not dabbed off anything since.
The springs clips are a pain in the arse. I got a reasonable fit after my 3rd attempt. Lucky I brought extra. I think it's something your get better at.
The hype is real
Not sure how much longer the discount for preordering is going to last as they are shipping at the end of this month. But there is a rewards program on their site. https://stamped.io/ref/v8xnt6h3
You can sign up and get an additional 15% your order when signing up. Tell your friends and you can get some pretty good rewards just for spreading the word. Peace be the journey y'all.
Seems like you didn't have the temp dialed in right then ... I get amazing clouds from my TC crucible using AF and no burning at all; residue cleans away beautifully.I dropped my Mod and M22. It shot out of my hands as they were slippery. My TC Escc broke. Few extra scratches but everything else was okay. Recommend vapes sorted me out with a replacement. Gutted though, expensive mistake. Gone back to the DTv4 for a while. I am a little shy to use the M22.
Now one thing I don't like about the M22 ESCC. Even with homemade rosin everything vaporises. There is very little reclaim left. This may sound like a good thing but with the DTv4 I can leave all the nasties behind. With the M22 I don't get the chance.
This was making my chest bad.
More testing needs to be done.
I have to agree. My personal m22 delivers very accurate and consistent temperature control - unlike anything else I own/tried. 10 weeks of daily use with nothing more than swabbing - no cup reseating, no iso soaks - on one set of clips, is what I've been getting.Seems like you didn't have the temp dialed in right then ...

I'm expecting both v2 escc and mod, early next week, for some testing. Results to be posted on r/AdvancedVapeSupply and here...
Overall, I'm of the opinion they're doing pretty well considering their small size and the fact they're not recycling tech from 5+ years ago that never worked as claimed, like all their competition is doing. Whiich also means - ya gets what ya pays for.
Loose wiggly escc is usually due to clips that were 'over prepared' - i.e. stretched a bit too much. Try stretching the side of the clips closest to the edge of the deck only. You want the clips to fit the legs as snugly as possible without clip crush. It takes a lil practice, but isn't difficult. The other thing is be gentle when swabbing. You don't need elbow grease or determined scrubbing, and doing either causes the escc to rock which loosens the clips. If you *do* need to scrub etc, your temps are too high or you need better pulsing technique. Scorching is user error 99% of the time - improper set up or technique.My ESCC seems to always move. I am always pushing it down. Do others get this?
Don't get me wrong. The M22 ESCC is amazing to dab from. But its not perfect.
Brother, you know (or should) that they don't just copy/paste the next month into their estimates. I get the frustration for sure, but what you said is simply untrue. No hostility here at all - I just couldn't let that go without correction. Hope you understand!Can't wait for your impressions! Can't get to reddit on Tor anymore, so please post here.
Also still on board. Using beat-up, replated ESCCs in power mode. Planning to buy the v2 and mod ASAP. At this point, they just copy and paste the next month into their availability estimate.
