I've come to the conclusion that the stainless steel in the description of Smok V8 x4 and Q2 coils has nothing to do with the wire. For some reason I'm burning these things up like toast and have decided I've pissed off enough money in the last month and it's time to get an RBA or RDTA and start building my own coils. Right now my go to mods are a couple of Smok G150s both with Big Baby Beats on them. I have no intentions of replacing either of them anytime soon. My back up is a V8 stick with a Big Baby on it to. The G150s are all am am looking at upgrading. Some looking around online and I found out that the RBA kit for the Baby Beast doesn't have glass for the Big Baby. So I have scratched that off my list and am looking at other options. I've looked at the Aromamizer Plus RDTA. It seems to have mostly positive reviews from what I've read. Looks like a little shopping and I can pick them up for $30 to $35 each. Would like to the tanks to be in the 5ml range maybe 7. I've also been looking at getting a Coil Master Kit. I really don't care v2 or v3. Will probably be a v2 because they are pretty cheap. Not locked into that brand just happens to be what consistently comes up when Googling. Since I've never built a coil I don't see where version number is going to matter much. Im also considering just scrapping this part if it altogether and sourcing some tools from my shop and only buying a Coil Master ohm meter. I figure allen wrenches can be used for wrapping dies. Tweezers are tweezers. I have a good selection of pliers, various needle noses, and screw drivers. I really don't see anything in one of those kits I don't already have something similar to with the exception of the ohm meter to screw the deck into with a fire button. Although I do have a standard ohm meter and a multi meter. I thinking stainless wire but am open to suggestions not involving kanthal. I'm looking to use the TC on these mods instead or wattage. Open to suggestions on wicking. Not really fond of the taste of singed cotton right now. With what I'm been reading I was thinking maybe rayon. I'm been reading not much flavor distraction with it. I sold one of the Harley seats I had in my bike building today and it gives me around $100 to spend on this right now to do both G150s $150 tops. I figure that all the Big babys will get moved to the shelf in my office and can be used as spares for the V8 Stick.
