The Series S Kit is a fantastic new starter kit primarily for customers looking for a realistic smoking sensation. It offers unrivalled build quality and performance in a sleek and up market design.
The Series S Kit comes complete with MTL tight draw coils but can also use DTL (direct to lung) inhale coils to give users a variety of different ways to use the kit. GQ Magazine’s pick for one the ‘Top 10 Coolest Things in the World’. It doesn’t matter if you’re brand new to vaping or a seasoned sub ohm fan looking for a discrete option, the Series S does it all. It’s also the first Kit That Ziggicig has been able to supply with a 6-month Warranty. A first for the Vaping industry
S17 Series Battery
These batteries have an impressive 900mAh capacity cell inside its tiny frame, the S17-Battery is sub-ohm capable and will work with coils rated as low as 0.5Ω. Designed to go best with the matching S-Tank, though any 510 atomiser can be used.
S17 Series Tank
The Jac Vapour Series S-17 Tank is a good choice of tank for both newcomers and more advanced vapers because it comes supplied with a choice of coils for mouth to lung or direct to lung vaping. The tank is top filling, 510 thread and has a 1.8ml capacity. This tank is very versatile with 3 different coil options for MTL and DL vapers in mind.
Set up procedure
To set up your new SERIES-S17 kit, unscrew the tank from the battery and set the battery aside.
Then, keeping a grip on the textured ring at the very end of the tank, unscrew the base. The base is the part that contains the adjustable airflow hole. Take a fresh coil, place it on the base and screw it on tightly. Make sure it is tightened enough and does not move, as this could cause leaking or prevent a proper connection, which will result in your SERIES-S17 not producing any vapour.
You can then prime your coil by dripping some of your favourite e-liquid into the centre of the coil. Alternatively, leave it right-way-up after filling for around 10 minutes before using your SERIES-S17. This ensures that all the wick is saturated with liquid and will not burn dry, which can produce an unpleasant, burnt taste.
S-Coils should be replaced after you have filled up your tank approximately 10 times. Two S-Coils are available for the SERIES-S17: Mouth To Lung and Direct Lung. The Mouth To Lung coils are designed to mimic the feeling of smoking, where you inhale into your mouth and then into your lungs. The Direct Lung coils feel more 'open' when you inhale, and are designed for long, deep draws directly into your lungs.
Next, you need to fill your tank.
If you are using the older 'bottom-fill' style S17 tank:
Take the top part of the tank and turn it upside-down so that the mouthpiece points downward. Fill with your preferred e-liquid, but be careful to not put any down the centre pipe which leads to the mouthpiece (“drip tip”), as it will flow directly out of the tank and waste your liquid. Instead, carefully fill your tank around the centre post, until the liquid is just below the top of this post. Screw the base back onto the tank
If you are using the new 'topfill' S17 tank:
Once you've installed the coil, screw the top and bottom parts of the tank back together. Then, unscrew the mouthpiece from the top of the tank, and squeeze your e-liquid into the filling holes at the side, being careful not to get any into the centre tunnel as this may flood your coil.
If you're experiencing a leak or gurgling/spitting from your SERIES-S tank, there may be a number of different reasons. The first step is to identify where the leak is coming from:
- Mouth tip - Normally a sign that the coil is flooded.
- Base - Normally a sign that the coil is flooded, the coil is loose, or the tank is losing pressure
- Tank housing - Possibly a sign that there is a physical fault with the tank housing (i.e. a crack)
A leaking or gurgling tank is almost always a symptom of a flooded coil, however.
Flooding occurs when an excess of e-liquid is pulled into the coil and begins to leak out into the airflow or up the tank chimney and out of the mouthpiece. It's almost always accompanied by a distinct gurgling sound.
Flooding can occur for a few different reasons:
1. TYPE OF E-LIQUID
The type of e-liquid used can have an effect in rare cases. Using a thin e-liquid that's high in PG in a direct lung setup which typically will be designed to rewick more quickly can occasionally lead to flooding, though this is fairly uncommon. Many vapers can use High PG e-liquids quite happily in a direct lung tank or device without issue.
Far more commonly, flooding can occur due to the way the device is being used. Taking lots of long, deep draws in quick succession has the effect of pulling too much e-liquid into the atomising chamber. The coil will have difficulty vaporising it all, with the excess beginning to leak as described above.
Similarly, taking lots of shallow puffs can achieve a similar effect, as the coil doesn't always have the time to get up to operating temperature.
To really get the most from your vaping experience, you should be aiming for relaxed draws, 3-5 seconds in length. You should also try to avoid inhaling while the button isn't pushed down, as that will lead to more e-liquid being pulled into the coil while is not operating.
3. BEING LEFT TO SIT
Finally, leaving a tank full of e-liquid to sit for extended periods can cause the coil to flood over time. The wicking material is pretty good at only absorbing the e-liquid it needs, and the pressure inside the tank helps hold the e-liquid in place, but given enough time it can become oversaturated. If you find yourself leaving your tank unused for long periods, it's possible that you may run into a flooded coil from time to time.
How to Fix a Flooded Coil
So, taking the advice above on board, if you do encounter a flooded coil, there are some simple steps you can take to resolve things.
The flick method is a good starting point. Holding the device in your hand, flick down sharply a few times. This will help pull the liquid up through the chimney and out the mouth tip, so you may need to dry this off with some tissue paper before using your device again.
If the flick method doesn't resolve the issue, it's possibly a sign that the coil needs to be replaced. Over time the wicking material will begin to clog, limiting its ability to absorb and hold e-liquid. Typically most coils should last for around 7-10 refills before they'll need to be replaced, so we'd recommend trying a fresh coil and following the advice laid out above.
LEAKING FROM THE BASE
Leaking from the base is normally a sign that the coil is flooded (see above), or that the coil is loose/cross threaded.
If you've followed the steps above to avoid or fix a flooded coil, you should next check to make sure that your coil is firmly screwed into place, and hasn't been crossthreaded. This is a particularly easy thing to miss, but it's always worth double checking as it's a simple solution that helps to resolve things in many cases. Coils should be screwed in tight enough to catch (finger tight), but you should avoid over-tightening.
If in doubt, it's a good idea to test the tank. Assemble the tank as you would normally, fill to above the top of the coil and then leave the tank to stand overnight (outside of the device).
- If there is no sign of any leakage, then the issue is almost certainly related to an error being made through use (see advice on how to avoid flooding above).
- If there are signs of leakage, it may indicate a physical fault with the tank:
- If the level of e-liquid in the tank drops to the feed holes on the coil, the issue is most likely related to the seal on the mouth tip.
- If the level drops to the top of the coil, the issue is most likely to do with the seal between the top of the coil and the bottom of the chimney of the tank.
- If the level drops to empty, or near empty, the issue is likely to do with the seal at the base of the coil.
LEAKING FROM THE HOUSING
- If a leak is coming from the glass window on the chamber itself, this is almost certainly a sign of a physical fault, such as a crack or break. A replacement tank will be required, but if your tank has been delivered in a damaged condition, please contact customer service.
Finally, it's important to know the difference between condensation and leaking. Vapour will naturally collect and form condensation, particularly if you tend to exhale onto/into the device. This will generally only ever be in small amounts, which shouldn't lead to noticeable leakage from the airflow of the tank. Simply drying this off periodically with a tissue should be enough to resolve the issue.
- The SERIES-S tank's are designed to be filled using bottles with a narrow nozzle. Avoid filling via wide nozzles as this risks e-liquid entering the central chimney and leaking down and out through the base of the tank.
- Do not overfill your SERIES-S tank - fill only to the top of the window. Filling past this point may cause liquid to leak down into the central chimney.
Is your battery refusing to fire?
If your SERIES-S battery is refusing to do anything at all, not even lighting up, the first thing to check is whether the five-click lock is active. Clicking the main button five times quickly will 'lock' the battery, making it completely unresponsive. Clicking the button another five times quickly should get it working again.
If the button light flashes red 10 times, this means that your battery simply needs charging.
However, if the battery is flashes all three colours when you press the button, this often points to an issue with the coil being damaged or a short circuit within the coil, thank or battery, so swap out the coil in your tank for a new one. Changing the coil usually fixes most issues with e-cigarettes.
If the battery still isn't firing, try your tank with another battery if possible. If the tank works as it should with another battery, this points to a fault with the first battery so please do get in touch with our customer services team who will replace the battery if it's within its 6-month warranty period.
Is your battery not charging?
Firstly, check the Micro USB charging lead with another battery if possible. If this other battery doesn't charge, this would point to an issue with the cable or the charging port, so try an alternative.
If no other battery is available, try another Micro USB charging lead. If the issue does lie with the battery and not the cable, please do contact our customer services team who will arrange a replacement if the battery is within its warranty period.
