    Hello.

    I just buy the OBS Engine mini RTA, am having issues to find the proper coil for cloud chasing, all the coils i have try taste like burn after a long hit and not getting good clouds, am vaping around 70-80W, i have try Clapton, Dual, Tiger, Alien Clapton, Single and mix twisted coils, all of them made of 316 SS.
    Has anyone find any coil for cloud chasing?
    I been vaping for 3 years now and is the first tank am having issues with, i usually use Alien Clapton in my AURA RDA but am tired of dripping while am driving nor in the motorcycle.

    I will appreciate any tip/help i can get.

    Might want to post pics of your setup showing the coil placement and wicking. I have OBS engine nanos and one thing I know is they don't like the wicking ports being stuffed too tight. Too much wick chockes off the juice flow to the coil. Less is more. :)

    Turn the wattage down. Stop expecting a single-coil to "bigcloudsbro".

    Or, sell it off here and get a cloud-chucker.

    In all fairness to the poster, the engine mini is a dual coil atty. It really should Chuck a decent cloud with the small chamber. I get where you're coming from though. Seeing as how the poster is tired of dripping but still wants clouds, I'd go with a dual coil rdta.

    mea-culpa - I saw "mini" and somehow transliterated "nano" - you are correct sir.

    Well, I still say: "lower the wattage; different coils; and clouds-my-ass", but - you know ;-)

    I'd say get a temp control mod, use SS SPACED coils. other than that we'd need to know the resistance of the coil or the gauge/wraps of wire
    I got engine nano and I get tons of cloudage from single coil. you should post a pic

    I don't even try for "tons of cloudage", but the OBS Engine Nano and the new Coil Master Elfy are both doing an awfully nice job - under 30 and 20 watts. I'm definitely going to have a pile of atties to sell off soon.

    LMFAO. This thread was created two weeks ago asking for help and the OP has not been back since. Guess the help was really needed. :bingo:

    We've had a fair number of such posters in the last month or two. Post and disappear.
