The wire traps easily under the screws, no need to wrap at all.  My Sub Ohm tank won't fire unless the ego thread extender is fitted, and why that is I have no idea.  It won't fire on either of my sub ohm batteries.  It's a total mystery.  I set the cotton length by the barrel part of the RDA, and cut the cotton to the top of that part.  I think the inlet holes have to be completely covered, and that length of cotton does it just nicely.  I can set the airflow to very tight by moving the widest slot to just showing, but I prefer a much looser draw and have it on fully open. I use this tank because it holds a good volume of fluid and is a damn sight easier to rebuild than say the UD AGA-T7 for instance.  Apart from it not firing as I expect, it's an excellent tank, well worth the no dollars I didn't pay for it, it was a gift from my supplier, Hawkes Bay Vapour.

+Suck My Mod These are just my experiences, for information.  I find the system of placing the wire works with either commercial pre-builds or home made coils.  It's getting it to fire that's the hard part.  :D  But all the commercial coils made for it work just fine, I just prefer to save money by building my own.

That's exactly what my MPV 3.0 did with the KangerTech RDA  that wouldn't damn well work.  It stopped, just went totally dead, thought I'd killed it!  But no, when I plugged the charge cable in it sprung right back to life.  Must be a safety thing?  :D

The symptoms you describe are the result of diseased testes and disease is not intersex, intersex groups will espouse.  And XXY is not intersex as just like any other person with more than 1 X only 1 X is actually active.  So XXY males or females have no more X's functioning in any cell than any XY man has, one.

When you mention the normal range of testosterone, that a number is lower than another does not mean 'very low' what it means is that is the level a normal male has and functions quite nicely with.  A regular XY man with testosterone at 400ng/dl can have all the masculine features (and probably does) as another XY man with 800ng/dl testosterone.  Testosterone is better measured against what it actually does in the individuals body to determine if it is sufficient or insufficient. There are also the gonadtropins that give a much more clear indication if a man is suffering hypogonadism than his testosterone level.  

The gonadtropins tell the testes to make sperm and testosterone and work by way of a feedback mechanism. If LH, the hormone that tells the testes to make testosterone, is elevated we know there is insufficient testosterone in the mans body, as T is produced in response to LH, LH will continue to rise if there isn't the testosterone to slow LH production down.  It's all really very interesting.  

For you, if you did nothing, took no hormone at all, you would continue to produce less and less testosterone and the disease in your testes progresses.  Oh but taking oestrogen will arrest your excessive height, if it's not already arrested?

+Cadence Kline Yes I can see the pof it has, yours.  You're right your testosterone is probably quite low, but I bet it's within the normal range for males, for most XXY guys it is that way, well after seminiferous tubule dysgenesis sets in it is. Before then it was probably normal, before puberty.

You forgot to thumb up the charge port on the side, so it can be charged without having to take the atomizer off. I'd be really enthusiastic about that unique feature.  If the screen doesn't flash the way you like it, why would you want a longer lit time for the screen?  I have no problem at all with the lit time, it's perfect.  Maybe you need to be blessed with a really short, short term memory?  :D  If you want more rounded edges get a VTR.  I have no issues with the feel or look of the device, and I've now noticed a  very short delay in firing.  I should not have watched this video and I'd never had my attention drawn to it.  But over all your video is pretty good, but I think the MVP 3.0 is better.  :D

I can't figure out why my KangerTech Sub Ohm coil does and does not work!

The highest I have is 30W and so far I've not got a flavour that will vape at 30W, so do I need a 50W device?  Well I don't think so, and in New Zealand that device is very expensive, it prices itself off my range of choices.

What the hell is 'organic glass?'  Glass is.... what is glass, it's not organic anyway, maybe it's a brand name?  Maybe it's plastic?  :D

There is tons. literally, of new research into XXY and KS, ongoing research, new research, all over the world.  You've just been too selective on what you read, or what those who supply you with information are willing to share.  What you say about research seem rather typical in the XXY community, as if you're all reading from the same hymn book!  I can find thousands of articles freely available on PubMed, for instance, and other sites that I can't recall the names of right now, that go into far reaching and in depth matters to do with XXY/KS males.  What there isn't a lot of research on are those things that don't show up very frequently, which is why there isn't a lot of information.  

On this page alone there are links to 3800+ articles on KS, starting from publication date 2015, and we're only just into 2015.  So I think you need to reconsider your ideas on just how much research really is out there.

+Cadence Kline The best bet is don't go to Google, there are plenty of health dedicated sites to get reliable information from.  And you're quite right, doctors do not spend a great deal of effort searching for those with SCA's, then again unless there's a national campaign for something they don't spend a great deal of time on searching for anything, it's $$$'s there are all those other obvious things for doctors to see.  

I've been 'around' for 38 years, obviously not on the internet, the internet isn't that old.  :D   Those others can't bring themselves to apply their teaching to SCA's and come out making any sense.   There are plenty of people with no medical or anatomic reason to claim they're intersex, and they do, and individuals can claim whatever they like about themselves, it's applying that understanding to everybody else with the same karyotype where difficulties arise.  

 But if your situation is the result of being XXY it's not the prsense of the additional X that causes it, as if it was everybody who was XXY would think like me, wouldn't they!   So this is where a better understanding of genetics must be achieved by all.  It is the combination of specific sets of cells in particular sites of the brain that bring about different thinking, I believe.  

Such as, do you know some XXY guys with no other genetic/medical problem are mentally retarded?  There has to be a reason why that is, and just possessing an additional X isn't it. :D

I'm 50 something and I'm XXY and I wasn't born with Klinefelters' syndrome.  I developed KS sometime after I was 14.  KS cannot develop before the onset of puberty and it's not an exact science as to when it does develop.  It may well be that some XXY are not diagnosed as the syndrome has not yet developed in them, well not until they're in their 40's and 50's and 60's?  KS prior to 1959 was known as Seminiferous Tubule Dysgenesis, look it up.

For all people with more than 1 X chromosome only 1 X is functioning in each cell. This is a cute little feature of evolution that prevents over expression of X genes, called X inactivation.  So, XXY males are not intersex.  What they do have that is true is skewed X inactivation, this has been proven to be true.  Females have random X inactivation, and since  they usually have 2 X's that means roughly 50% of the chromosome from each parent is active, in a nice on/off fashion.  This is the feature that can explain why some XXY males are more severely affected than others, depending of what group of cells,, and where they are, are activated from each parent.

I'd like you genius people to work out why my KangerTech Sub Ohm tank Mini won't fire with its rda in it, without an ego extension, but the same sub ohm battery the KangerTech tank is on will fire any other sub ohm tank, and the KangerTech tank will fire on a sub ohm battery if the commercial coils it comes with are in it?

I don't mind if you say you like a device, I like ALL my paid for by myself Innokin products. But I appreciate your review more if I know you paid for it yourself, rather than a product given to you for free, as then you have no financial interest, have nothing to lose, and could brush over problems that would otherwise piss you off.
