AVS is an acronym for the Automatic Vaping System. It is specifically designed and made for the GGTS with the Revision 2 top cap and collector tank feature and is a different design than the AFS v2.
For the Revision 1 of the GGTS, one would need to buy the AVS together with Collector tank part, suppliers bundle this as the "older GGTS upgrade" package.

- Allows to automatically feed e-liquid into the atomiser, thus usually lasting for a full day of vaping.
- Holds around 6ml of liquid.
- As standard accepts 901 atomisers (without the need to modify the atties) and 808D cartomisers (small modifications required)
- Works together with the adjustable draw feature of the GGTS and the collector tank in such a way that the atomiser is fed both from the main tank and the collector tank, thus reducing the need for primary inhales.
- The o-rings are hidden.
Assembly and Use
The AVS comes standard with a 901 connector which will without adapters accomodate a 901 atomiser or an 808D cartomiser.
- 901 atomisers require no modifications
- 808D cartomisers require drilling or punching through a side hole in them, please instructions here: Cartomisers in the AFS & AVS
- 510 atomisers and catromisers using the 510 connector require no modification
- 801 attys see cappy's video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dlJA0NxOaJA&feature=player_embedded

- Put the smaller of two o-rings (Diagram 2 - 6) that are not attached to anything around the bottom of the atomiser.
- Screw the atomiser onto the connector part (D 2 - 3).
- Slide the o-ring down so it touches the connector part at the bottom of the atomiser (D 1 - 2&3).
- Slide the connector part and the atomiser (D 1 - 2&3) through the bottom of the liquid tank (D 1 -1, D 2 - 1), now screw it in fingertight.
- Screw the liquid tank onto the collector tank.
- Make sure the draw adjustment control ring is fully closed (screw it towards the bottom of the GGTS).
- Put E-liquid in the liquid tank, don't go above where the threads start.
- Put the bigger of the top rings (D 2 - 10) onto the liquid tank, screw it in slowly.
- Put the bigger of the o-rings (D 2 - 11) around the atomiser so it goes into the groove between the atomiser and the bigger top ring.
- Screw the smaller top ring (D 2 - 8) onto the bigger ring until you feel it touch the o-ring.
- Screw the mouthpiece (D 2 - 9) on top of the smaller top ring.
This method is particularly useful for LR atomisers which if there is too much liquid dropped into the collector tank at the refill time do not fire properly and need an almost empty collector tank to function.
- When you put together the juice tank and the atomiser as per above instructions, do not screw the assembly onto the collector tank.
- Plug the juice tank bottom hole with your finger.
- Fill it with juice and put on the top rings as per above instructions while still plugging the hole with your finger.
- Screw the complete juice tank on the collector tank.
- If you don't feel comfortable with this procedure you can just try to empty the collector tank after a refill, by unscrewing the juice tank and either dumping the liquid out or using a syringe to suck it out of the collector tank.
There are two main options in getting the AVS ready to be vaped when you first fill it up with juice:
It is not as important to know where inside the tank the side hole is, but it is still a good idea to check when your AVS is fully assembled in what position the hole is towards the ground (when tank is running low, this will mean the hole is in the juice). This helps when the tank is low and you wish to suck all of the juice up.
Open a little the adjustable draw Control Ring (CR)
Blow slowly into the mouthpiece 1 or 2 times, to make sure some of the liquid goes into the Colletor Tank, this way the atomiser will be directly fed from the bottom hole.
Almost completely close the CR
Inhale without pressing the button, this gets some of the liquid sucked into the atomiser, through the side hole.
Control Ring Basics
The more you close the Control Ring, the more liquid is being fed into the atomiser from the AVS tank. This means you will have more flavour, but also a higher chance to flood your atomiser and overfill the collector tank.
The more you open the control ring, the less liquid is being fed into the atomiser. This means potentially higher vapour production, if open too much you run the risk of burning the atomiser. This also means that you will most likely empty out the collector tank.
Thus it is important to find the correct spot for the Control Ring, in which, not too much and not too little liquid is being fed into the atomiser. It is best to adjust as you go along. So if you have too much liquid in the collector tank and you feel you're close to flooding the atomiser, open up the control ring, it is also possible to smoke the excess juice by holding the AVS horizontal. If you feel a burnt taste, it is probably a good idea to close the control ring a bit more.
Cleaning the AVS
The same ideas apply as for the GGTS; however, it is better to use Vaseline or any other chemically neutral lubricant over the threads as there is a chance of it coming into contact with the e-liquid.
At least once a week put vaseline on all the o-rings to prolong their lifespan.
Make sure to wash off any polishing residue with soapy water. Clean Gasoline (used for cleaning clothes) or Alcohol is effective to remove extreme tarnishing caused by e-liquid.
AVS O-Ring Sizes
In case you wish to buy your own o-rings here is a list of diameter/thickness parameters for the o-rings, it is recommended to just purchase the ready sets from the suppliers though. Make sure you use appropriate materials which can withstand high temperatures.
- 8/2 - atomizer near connector
- 9/2,5 - between 2 caps
- 18/1,5 - refill cap between collector tank and connector of GGTS
- 18/1,5 - connection between collector tank and connector of GGTS
- 10/1 - mouthpiece
- 13/1,5 - connection between AVS and collector tank
- 21/1,5 - inside CR
- 2 x 2/1 - tiny o-rings inside connector
- 15/1 - lids
