Sense Herakles Plus Intro

Today we take a look at the brand new sub ohm tank from Sense, called the Herakles Plus. Spoiler Alert: It’s a gooden!​

Sense are well known for their flagship tank called the Herakles, which currently sits in our “top 5 sub ohm tank ranking chart”. They also have two others, the Hydra and the Cyclone. The Cyclone which we reviewed recently, was a bit of a flop in my eyes, so I am hoping the Herakles Plus is better!

The Herakles Plus looks similar to the Sense Hydra and comes with a top fill function, unique top airflow system and a juice flow control feature. The tank capacity is about 3.5ml and the Herakles Plus comes in either Black or Stainless Steel.

COMPATIBILITY NOTE: The coils on the Herakles Plus are not compatible with the original Herakles tank or the Sense Cyclone. This means you will therefore not be able to use your old coils on the Herakles Plus.

Vape setup: Sigelei 150W and Virgin Vapor Razzmatazz 0mg max VG e-juice.

  • 20-40W – Not much going on.
  • 40W – Decent vapor now and a cool vape.
  • 50W – Bigger vapor but still a cool vape and ok flavor.
  • 60W – Flavor starting to come through now and the vapor is warming up nicely.
  • 70W – Amazing clouds and a warmer vape now. The flavor is also very good at 70W and makes for a delightful vape!
  • 80W – Getting a little too warm for me now at this wattage, so I wouldn’t recommend taking the 0.4ohm Kanthal coil any higher than 80W.

My sweet spot for the Herakles Plus 0.4ohm Kanthal head was around 65-70W.

Vape setup: Sigelei 150W and Virgin Vapor Razzmatazz 0mg max VG e-juice.

  • 40W – Nothing much happening before 40W. At 40W a cool vape with little clouds and little flavor.
  • 50W – Big clouds now and a slightly warmer vape. Flavor isn’t quite there yet imo.
  • 60W – Massive clouds and the flavor is coming through, but not as much as on the Kanthal coil.
  • 70W – Better flavor now and a warm vape that suits what I like.
  • 80W – Slightly too hot for me now, but the coil is wicking well. The flavor for me isn’t as good as the superb Kanthal coil.

My sweet spot for the Herakles Plus 0.2ohm 316L head was around 70W.

Unique Top Air Flow

Sense Herakles Plus Top Airflow/Delrin Drip-Tip
Sense Herakles Plus Top Airflow/Delrin Drip-Tip

The top air flow systems on most sub ohm tanks are built into the drip tips and as such the additional air flow does not touch the coil and at best helps keep the vapor cool. The additional air flow through the drip tip does however, have a detrimental effect on flavor. The new air flow system on the Herakles Plus promises not to hurt flavor, as the air taken in from the top actually goes down a separate chamber in the chimney and hits the top of the coil. It is a unique feature and makes for a very enjoyable vape. When vaping with the top air flow open, it didn’t feel like the extra air impacted flavor at all. It seems that the new top air flow system does it’s job well!

Juice Flow Control

The final version of the Herakles Plus features a juice flow control. This should be completely shut off when re-filling the tank from the top. This ensures the Herakles Plus does not leak. It also allows you to close off the juice flow slightly, should you be using higher PG e-juices or a 50/50 blend.

Flavor

For me the Herakles Plus 0.4ohm Kanthal coil head was exceptional and was right up there with the Uwell Crown and TFV4, our two favorite sub ohm tanks thus far for flavor. The 0.2ohm SS head, for me, wasn’t quite as good as the Kanthal head was, but was still made for an enjoyable vape.

Clouds

The Herakles Plus, like most sub ohm tanks chucks massive clouds. Even at 40-50W this things absolutely chucks clouds. If you are a cloud chaser you will not be disappointed by the Herakles Plus.

Top Fill

The top fill is easy to use on the Herakles Plus and is a must have feature given it’s rather limited 3.5ml tank capacity.

Dislikes

Spit-Back

We experienced some spit-back on both of the coils we tried when vaping them for the first ⅓ of a tank. The Kanthal coil seemed to spit-back more than the 0.2ohm SS coil. This was quite unpleasant, especially at higher wattages where the e-juice can get really hot and burn your tongue! The spit-back did stop after having vaped through the first ⅓ of a tank and the coils became fully primed and “vaped in”.

Tank Capacity

The tank capacity isn’t the biggest and at 3.5ml it is at the lower end of the sub ohm tank market when it comes to e-juice capacity. I would have liked to have seen an extra 1 – 1.5ml in the tank, given the amount of e-juice it gets through.

Verdict

This tank has been getting a lot of hype from quite a few Youtube reviewers and for good reason. The Herakles Plus has a unique top air flow system, which works well and the tank produces fantastic flavor and vapor. The vape is really smooth and the air flow provides you with a lovely wide open draw.​

The big question is how does it stack up against other sub ohm tanks and does it make our top 5? The original Herakles was outstanding and sits in 4th place on our top 5 list. The Herakles Plus, although it uses different coils, does what the Herakles does well and produces fantastic flavor and clouds. The Herakles Plus has three major improvements over the original, namely its top air flow system, top fill and juice flow control system. It is therefore a considerable improvement on the original and also provides more than the Silo Beast which we currently have in 3rd place. Does it top the TFV4 and Crown though? I think in terms of an affordable vape experience the Herakles Plus beats the TFV4, largely because the TFV4 coils are just so expensive (RBA is another story). Is the Herakles Plus better than the Crown? Because of the limited tank capacity, initial spit-back and lack of an RBA section, I can’t rate it higher than the Crown. In terms of the vape experience, it is right up there on the same level with the Crown, but overall I still feel the Crown does enough to beat the Herakles Plus to the number one spot.​

Overall the Herakles Plus is a fantastic sub ohm tank and I can highly recommend it to those looking for a sub ohm tank that produces great flavor and clouds. I also think it looks pretty awesome in black!

  • Sylvain

    Great review guys! Keep it up! In your opinion, is it better than it’s predecessor?

    • Yes! The features build into this tank make it just that much better. Thanks!

      • That Dude

        I haven’t experienced leaking in mine either @Nick Melendez. I still use all my Sub Ohm tanks mainly for flavor variety but since I bought a Kanger Nebox kit it’s my go to. With a 10 ml tank, temp control, pretty much all the bells and whistles. At the same time it’s smaller than any of my other battery/tank combos even though it has 3 to 5 times the capacity. Only setback is that it will leak until it has been refilled multiple times. I see this type of setup being the future.

  • Bracholi

    I personally didn’t find the decreased capacity too diminishing to the overall package. With the top fill option, combined with how I pretty much change flavors each time I refill, I actually enjoy the slightly smaller capacity. With my Kanger Subtank I found myself often getting bored with the current flavor and taking the time to pull the old liquid out, a much more messy and time consuming task, and refilling from there. With this tank I don’t have the chance to get bored with a flavor, and the top fill takes well under a minute to get going again.

    • Hey Bracholi, you are totally right. Seeming as we only use 1-2 different e-liquids to test our tanks to keep the reviews consistent, we like to have a higher liquid capacity on the tanks. I know that quite a few people complained about the capacity being slightly on the smaller side compared to other tanks on the market, but it definitely comes down to the way you use the tank.

  • Dana Hagemike

    I think you shouldn’t include capacity on how you rate the tanks cuz that is preference and you can get the herakles plus on vapor dna for 29.99 and a pack of 5 coils for 14 and if you factor that in that you rated the flavor and clouds the same a crown and tfv4 and better build quality then tfv4 and its cheaper then technically it’s better then the tfv4

    • Sadly, capacity is a big killer for sub ohm tanks. Having small juice capacities on tanks that drink as much e-juice as the TFV-4 and Herakles Plus do, is in our opinion a negative. I personally do not like to carry e-juice in my pocket when I am out and about. 3.5ml is about 30-40 puffs and does not suffice in the current market. The TFV-4 running at 5ml is barely enough, still a lot better than the 3.5ml on the plus thus the reason we think the TFV-4 has the upper hand when it comes to capacity. It all comes down to the way you would like to use the tank and how much you would like to spend on a certain product. This is only our opinion on the products we test, it can vary from user to user.

  • Dana Hagemike

    I get what you are saying but at the same time ppl don’t want to carry around huge sub ohm tanks either. any tanks 5ml or bigger are close to if not bigger then the mod and a lot of ppl are into small set ups for ease of carrying in the pocket that’s y the ipv d2 is so popular or rdas where you only get mabe 10 puffs. most ppl prefer compact designs. And carrying a plastic 15ml unicorn bottle in your pocket is lighter and smaller then a 5ml tank especially the tfv4 and a lot less likly to spill in your pocket cuz I’m sorry that whole swing door set up on the tfv4 is stupid without some kind of lock on it and the stupid vape band they give you as a lock can come off while it’s in your pocket then you have juice all in your pocket it’s happen to me and all my friends who own a tfv4 and not just once. And for me price isn’t an issue I have no problem spending more for something if it worth it like my tugboat tuglyfe dna 200 which you are missing in your dna 200 list. And please don’t get me wrong I value your opinion and you are one of my go to places for reviews cuz I like how you keep it short and sweet and keep it to the point and I agree with you on most stuff like the uwell crown it’s currently my fav sub ohm tank 2nd would be herakles plus, 3rd tfv4 mini, 4th tfv4. Ohh and you should check out the new indulgence mutank I haven’t got it yet but I heard its in the running for one of the best sub ohm tanks

    • That is true, like I said before it comes down to personal preference. The Tuglyfe Tugboat DNA200 is on our list, once we have finished overhauling the new site we will upload it. The Mutank is also on our list! Thanks Dana.

    • audiosabre

      I like the look of the mutank. Reminds me of the subtank mini (or even the Zephyrus) in looks, but under the hood it seems like a pure beast. I’ll keep an eye on that.

      • Seems to be a lot of hype at the moment about it, we will try and get one asap.

    • That Dude

      Dana have you checked out the Kanger Nebox kit? It’s smaller than most batteries above 60-70 watts and it has a 10 ml tank built in. I highly recommend it. I was never a fan of Kanger until I got this before it was a pain in ass to fit my setup in my pocket and had to have juice on me too. If you are dedicated to Sub Ohm tanks for your battery I’d recommend the Tri Force. It’s the best I’ve used. The built in is so much easier to carry around I still use my other setups but only at the house now.

  • Nick Melendez

    Hey Alex. Have you had any leaking issues even when juice control is closed. I seem to get droplets and even bubbles from between top of glass. I bought my plus based on all the reviews and no one seems to mention leaking. I googled leaking on this tank and Reddit had some post on leaking. Very frustrating I might just go back to my super tank mini and crown. I did absolutely everything to prevent leaking and still does.

    • Hi Nick, we have not had any issues with leaking on the Herakles Plus. It might be worth sending or bringing it back to the shop you brought it from. Other than that I can only suggest things that you may have already done. Clean, dry (blow dryer or something similar), check if all o-rings are in place, place the coil firmly in the tank, screw tightly together and do not over-saturate. Have you tried a new coil?

      • Nick Melendez

        I have tried everythiny

        • Then I would suggest bringing it back to the shop you brought it from.

          • Nick Melendez

            Pointless now today at work a coworker of mine knocked over my device onto the concrete floor and cracked the glass and damaged the finish. So I guess my luck with this tank is no good.

          • I am sorry to hear that! I hope you have better luck with your next tank.

  • audiosabre

    Interesting. I have a black one in the mail now, with a packet of both coils. Capacity isn’t a huge deal to me, it’ll be for the house like the other cloud chuckers. Build quality and coil prices are paramount, which take the TFV4 off the top 5 for me. So it’s head to head with the Crown – besides flavour (and forgetting capacity), it’s going to come down to airflow, build quality and ease of use. I doubt it could be higher build quality than the Crown, that would be next level machining, just matching the Crown will suffice. It could beat the Crown airflow, because that is sometimes suddenly turbulent for periods (still no idea why). Let’s see if that spit back is too much of an issue. Hopefully I don’t get a leaky one, I’ve been lucky so far (or not doing something wrong).

      • audiosabre

        It’s been a month and I’ve extensively tested it enough to form an opinion; my final opinion is that it ties with the Crown. Both have strengths and weaknesses, and if it wasn’t for a couple of points the Herakles would have won.

        Coil life is superb; the .4 coil installed in the tank lasted me a month to the day. It still tasted great when I changed it out, I was just dying to try the 316L coil in TC mode. Considering all the different juices I put through it, the coils at least tie Uwell’s for longevity, and that’s saying something. I won’t know for sure until I’ve used more coils, they may even last longer.

        In terms of flavour, it’s absolutely on par with the Crown using the kanthal coil. Fruits, custards, bakeries & desserts all taste great. The 316L coil is also good in TC mode; a lot more stable than the Crown SS coils. I prefer them over Uwell’s Nickel coils – which I’m vaping now. Where it beats the Crown is break-in time. They taste great almost immediately, whereas the Uwell’s coils are flakey for at least half a tank.

        Aesthetically, I prefer the Herakles. The black one has the same great PVD coating as the Crown. Both have a ‘Chinese’ look about them (think Chinese architecture). The flush look, and lack of defined knurling, makes the Herakles look slightly better, imo. It’s a shame they printed the CE and recycle markings on the chimney instead of underneath.

        Airflow is a tie. Although the Herakles is more open using the top airflow, I don’t think it does anything for flavour. It doesn’t mute the flavour like drip tip top airflow does. However, I feel it provides too much air, and there are diminished returns. I prefer to use it with the top airflow closed. Vapour production is satisfying enough for me without top airflow.

        It probably sounds like the Herakles should have won at this point. However, first thing; I had the Herakles leak. One way I got it to leak was to fill it up normally. Once the top cap was on and the juice flow was opened, the juice level dropped as it filled the ‘coil chamber’. Then I closed the juice flow, filled the remainder up, etc. With thinner (50/50) juices it might flood or leak from the airflow, it might not; pot luck. Also, if you mess with the juice flow a lot, there’s a change you’ll get seepage. Another way it will seep is if you leave it fully topped up with the juice flow open. OK, it may only leave a small residue on your mod, but the Crown would never leak in this circumstance. It’s possible to use the Herakles with no leaking/seeping (I have for weeks), but it’s more likely to leak than the Crown, and that’s a negative.

        Another negative to me is the airflow ring stiffness. I think it’s just a little too stiff, and because it’s so small it can be difficult to move without messing with the juice flow. And messing with the juice flow increases your chance of seeping/leaking. I try to leave it fully open, but closing the juice flow can knock it off a little.

        The last negative is ramp up. Compared to the Crown there is a noticeable ramp up at the same wattage. I’ve gotten used to it now, but it means taking longer pulls than I do with the Crown, and it feels slightly less of a responsive and ‘snappy’ performer.

        So all-in-all; a draw. I love them both, and the way I use them, it’s hard to pick a clear winner. The .5 ml less capacity wasn’t substantial enough to complain about. The build quality is a tie too; both are easy to clean and disassemble-able.

    I got mine about a week ago and really like it so far. Haven’t tried the 0.4 ohm coil yet, but I have been rocking the 0.2 ohm 316L stainless steel coil on my HCigar VT200 in temp control mode. Having tried the Cyclone I was concerned about the the top airflow with this tank, but I was pleased. It actually gives a different, unique vaping experience that is different from both the TFV4 and the Crown both of which I own. For straight up clouds the TFV4 is the best simply because of the size of their coils, they’re gigantic (and expensive), and there are so many varieties of coils that are rated up as high as 140 watts. Flavor-wise I would still say the Crown is best, but have found similar experiences like someone from a previous post mentioned about the airflow problem. I believe this to be the coil at fault, not the tank, per say, especially if you use the 0.2 ohm coil like I do. Interestingly enough, I thought the Crown coils were stainless steel? If so then they don’t read on my HCigar VT200, although the Herakles Plus did. The Crown just won’t fire, it will read the resistance, but nothing when I press the fire button. Go figure. Anyway, can’t wait to try the 0.4 coil, especially after reading your review. Thank you sir!

    • Some awesome tanks you are rocking there! Sadly you are not the only one who has complained about the same issue with Uwells SS coils. I have no idea why this issue occurs but I think it has something to do with the SS they use, maybe a SS and Kanthal mix? Only Uwell knows… enjoy your vape!

      • Mike’s Vapors

        SS coils with ni200 legs, confuses the chip!

    Interesting to see Sense coming out with the Baijiada Mermaid (say that 10 time fast), using Herakles Plus coils in a basic, bottom fill tank with 2 ml capacity, for about $19.99 USD.

    Would be curious to see if and how the Arctic V8 compares to some of these.

    I was excited about trying the Mutank, and connected with a few people who were using it, expected to hear it was great. I got some of that, but I also heard reports of coils burning out in a couple of days, and that it created a lot of heat in the tank itself. Regardless of the source, a review after living with the tank for maybe a week might tell more than a first impression?

    Starting to think the TFV4 is the overall best of an imperfect breed. Other than that, I think I’ll pick up tanks that have been out awhile, once they go on deep discount….. not the present revelation of like 2 new tanks from every single manufacturer that we’ve seen over the past couple of weeks.

    • Good choice, you only no for sure when a product has been out for a while. Sadly we are really busy with the new site so reviews will be a bit slower than usual for next 1-2 weeks. We have the Arctic V8, Mutank and Baijiada Mermaid all on the review queue. The reviews will be online Mid January.

  • Lowfibass

    I have this tank. The taste is unbeatable. Hands down the best. My ONLY issue is that I seem to be the only one that has one that leaks. Does ANYONE know anything about the leaks? Is it a product issue or do I just have a bad one? Thanks!

    • I have never had any leaking issues with the Herakles. I would suggest to do the following: 1. Give the tank a nice clean, 2. Dry it off with a blow dryer or hair dryer, 3. Put the tank back together and screw it nice and tight, 4. Chuck in a new coil and give it a good amount of juice to saturate, 5. Prime it and you should be good to go. If you still have leaking issues I would suggest you send it back to the shop you brought it from.

      • Lowfibass

        Thanks Alex! One more question. This could help other noobs out there like myself. Whats the actual fill line on it? Am I supposed to fill it all the way up or?

    • Blargolis

      My experience – some of the coils appear to be bad. I have experienced ongoing leaking with two of the kanthal coils. Also make sure your juice flow control stops at the detents (less than a quarter turn of the top section) If it just spins something isn’t aligning right and juice flows around the seals at the bottom. I think Sense has a QC issue with the coil housings as others have experienced horrible leaking while others say “I had no problem”

    • Josh Cook

      Mine leaks and its irritating but 83rd my only issue with the tank. Besides that I love the tank

    • V Ape

      Mine leaks too, selling it!

    • Michael McCray

      make sure you shut off juice flow when filling, also good practice to shut it when not using it for a while, I have had 0 leaks, a friend had leaks until he started closing juice flow while filling.

    What would u guys recommend for the nickel coil?

    • Have not yet tried it, but I have heard that it is quite good. I can’t imagine it being better than the Kanthal coils though.

    What would u guys recommend for the nickel coil?

  • Danfromouteast

    I love the Herakles but mine for some reason leaks like crazy. It leaks more than any tank I’ve had. I checked the orings and took it apart put it back together. If anyone can help with some advice. I’m ready to throw it out

    • V Ape

      So does mine, selling it!

      make sure you shut off juice flow when filling, also good practice to shut it when not using it for a while, I have had 0 leaks, a friend had leaks till he started closing juice flow while filling.

  • Saul

    I’m relatively new to vaping. I’ve been using the Herakles Plus for almost a month now, and I gotta say I’m impressed by the amounts of flavor and huge clouds it produces. However, coming from an iStick basic (I know, I shouldn’t even compare the two), I kinda liked not having to carry around a bottle of juice with me. I would like to keep this piece as my in house/office tank, but the reason I’m writing here is I’d like to hear some suggestions of what kind of tank would you people recommend me that doesn’t eat up so much juice since I travel a lot, most of the times to locations where finding a vaping store is impossible. I’m using about 5x as much juice with this one. I am aware that sub-ohm vaping consumes more juice, so a clearomizer recommendation would be fine although something slightly closer to sub-ohm would be nice. I’m okay with either mouth to lung or direct lung vaping, and I prioritize flavor over huge clouds..
    tl;dr: Can anyone recommend me a tank that doesn’t eat so much juice like the herakles plus for daily on-the-go?
    Thanks a lot. I love this website and it’s been very helpful to me so far.

    • Thanks for the kind words Saul! At the moment, I suggest you take a look at the Aspire Plato! It is great for both SOV and MTL and has a great liquid capacity as well. We just got the Aspire K3 kit which looks really good, I have not yet tried it but it may be worth looking into. Other than that I use the Innokin Endura T22 and T18 almost daily, the T22 for when I am out and about for longer periods of time and the T18 for when I am at home. They are not exactly cloud chuckers but they are really great MTL devices, especially for high PG/Nic e-liquid. Hope that helps, but I sadly cannot recommend any sub ohm tank that uses “less” e-liquid as they all use so much.

        Thank you for the quick answer! I forgot to mention I already have a mod, a Joytech Cuboid that I’m loving and works great at 50-65w with the Herakles, so I’m looking for just another tank to use for when I don’t want to burn through so much juice. That Endura T22 looks nice though, I might try it in the future. I think for now I’ll explore with making my DIY juice because I just love the Herakles but burning through all those botless is quickly becoming expensive. 😛
        Thanks!

    Finally pulled the trigger, and the H+ arrived in today’s vape mail. Pleasant surprise, dense clouds like the original, and I prefer that it’s not crazy airy like some others. Hope the coils last, because the 0.4 is pulling 5.7 volts when vaping at 65w. This one is fun to vape and good looking too. I hear it’s less likely to leak if not topped off, but filled to about 75-80%.

    New Nautilus for work not working out. Overpaid, leaking like crazy, ever tried taking a drag on a thick milkshake? I like MTL as well as DL, but what’s a better choice to use with my iStick 40 or Aspire CF? Often suggested are Eleaf GS (Air or not), Triton 1.8 or Vaporesso 0.9 for my Atlantis 2, Innokin T18 (Prism), etc. I did try Kanger 1.5, not terrible but not really worth vaping either.

    • Oh okay, I have never had any issues with my Nautilus and Nautilus Mini. I am currently vaping on the T18 and it is amazing. Flavor on the Prism coils is just crazy. You should also check out the brand new Aspire K3, I am using it as we speak. Great little device, quite airy for my liking though.

    Got the Nautilus sorted out, top cap was slightly loose and was not using enough power to vaporize all the liquid. Ordered a T22 though because I still find the Nautilus a bit tight.

    The Herakles Plus, on the other hand, vapes great but has coil QC issues. The first coil burned out in 3 days, and the second came apart when screwing into the base (had to get someone with a tool to pull out the remains).

    These are actually 3-part coils. Need to be sure it’s all screwed together tight before installing.

    The vendor is sending me a few extra coils, but Sense (and others) need to put these together right. I did not have these issues with original Herk, and tfv4 coils are ususally, not always, trouble free.

    • Good choice on the T22, I can really recommend it. QC is sadly always an issue from products being made in China. You will find that Sense is not the only one with coil CQ issues… Enjoy the T22 and it is a shame that you didn’t like the Nautilus Mini, if you want more airflow you should check out the Aspire K3! More airflow than the Nautilus!

    I just slapped this tank on a new mod I bought to day and now I am in love with it. Before I was using the Kangertach KBOX Mini to run this tank, but I went and bought a Wismec Reuleaux RX200 today and… WOW. Now I can finally taste the flavor like I should be and the vape clouds are crazy. Almost ran through a full tank of juice in the last 4 hours though… I think I will keep this badboy at home and take my Kangertech with the matching tank to work since it doesn’t drink juice as much. Great review btw. This site is what convinced me to get this tank, but I just had to weak of a mod for it. 😀

    I have had my tank for 3 months. Clouds and flavor are great, but I hate it. As discussed in the rview, slatter is a big issue. Also, it leaks like crazy. I lose at least 1/2 ml of juice a day. Even leaks when turned to “off” posotion. In addition, 3 out of 4 times I go to remove tank from mod, bottom tries to unscrew. I am replacing this with something else and not recommend it to anyone.

    • Michael Abrams

      Try filling it only about 80-90 pct. Then take a few light pulls with juice flow closed, flip it over once, then open juice flow. As for spitback, it goes away.

      I put up with the fussiness because it vapes so well, better than the Crown.

      I did try to top it off once when filling, and sure enough, it leaked bad. Only that time.

  • Carson

    im stuck on deciding which tank to get either the herakles plus or the crown by uwell. anyone please tell me which one is better and why!

    • Well IMO the Crown has more flavor but the Herakles Plus has more features and better airflow.

      • Carson

        which blows bigger clouds but still has good flavor?

        • IMO they both produced a very good amount of vapor, the vapor was more dense on the Crown due to less airflow. We used 75% VG liquid and there was barely a difference. If you need to pick it will probably come down to convenience, aesthetics and upkeep cost.

  • Rafa

    I know this is supposed to be simple, but I’m having a hard time getting to the coil, to replace it with another one. Can you help me out with this?

    • Rafa

      I got it broken down to this, but can’t figure out how to remove that last part. I even tore up my hand from gripping the screwing threads while trying to twist it off

      • mohammed

        the airflow at the bottom should seperate from the part which states ‘Herakles Plus’. You might of tightened it too hard. Grab a a pair of pliers (make sure you add tissue or cloth first to avoid damaging the paint) to undo it.

        That should do the trick.

    • SomeHelpingGuy

      take the scissors and insert it in the air flow, then take pliers and grab the chimney then move scissors to unscrew it it helped me 🙂

    I have just moved from herakles plus tank to the aspire clito. I had big leak issues and didn’t want to have a tank that leaked like that at all! The first herakles tank was better in my opinion as I had that one a while ago however I feel the plus has been a big fault! The aspire clito is a great wee tank, really efficient! Would definitely recommend!!

    I just traded my TFV4 for a Herakles Plus. Initially I’m happy with the trade but I got one issue that is bothering me. The drip tip is getting filled up with condensed juice. When vaping it’s just noteable since you actually inhale and kinda draw on it and just doesn’t feel all that nice. This is just how the Herakles Plus is? As already stated I had a TFV4 and also still got Cleito and Crown.

    Do I use wattage or ss for the 0.2 ohm ss coil

    • You may use both wattage and SS mode. I suggest using SS mode due to the way the chip works with the coil.
