    Tfv4 quad coil rebuild better flavor and vape experience tailored to your needs.. (plus get more use out of your old quad coil heads).

    First tear out your old quad coil head should look like this..

    Next make your coil I prefer about 4mm makes for the best fit, can use wire to your liking but around 5 wraps fits best, make sure to wrap them loose and uniformed, then bend your leads down make sure they are oposite sides of your coil. Should look something like this.

    Next take a thin piece of cotton the width of you coil and start the first wrap under the long lead of your coil then continue to wrap over the lead (this prevents the lead from shorting out on your coil) wrap as tight as you can. Should look like this.

    Next insert your wicked coil through the top of your tfv4 coil head, keep whatever you used to wrap it through the center of your coil to prevent deformations. Once in your coil head and positioned correctly, bend your leads at the bottom to keep it in place. Here's a few pics.

    Next insert your bottom pin with your rubber gasket and make sure one lead is touching the pin and gasket and the other is touching the tfv4 coil head and the gasket. Should look like this.

    Next put your tool you used to wrap your coils in the center of your coil and pack thin pieces of cotton around the out side of the coil and fill any loose spots and clip your leads as close to the base as you can get them, should like this.

    Once fully packed and nice and tight your ready to prime and install your rebuild tfv4 quad coil head. Should look like this.

    Thanks bro. I've had one sitting here and. I've been thinking about doing it. When I first seen it it looked to me it couldn't be any worse than the crown of alantis.
    Thank you for that very helpful.

    I do have one more question. I used the " kanthal A1 28ga×2 +32ga Clapton wire on a tank coil build. And I can't get it to stop tasting all metallic. I burnt it off first. And it don't taste that way on my rda. Am I doing something wrong

    I've heard of this happening before, never personally had it happen but it could be if your using ni80 for outer wrap and vaping a citrus type juice it can cause a chemical reaction with the nickel leaving a Metalic taste.. if that's not it it could just need time to break in?

    Some of those fused builds take forever to break in.. they last forever I am testing one right now to see how long it lasts it's a 24gx2 mad rabbit core fused with 36g ni80 and it's lasted 5 months still going strong.

    Well I'll just keep trying I'll get it. And your right they do last. Long as you burn them off. Put fresh cotton and go
    It's nice

    Two questions.

    1, is this better than using one of the rebuildable decks?

    2. Is this a 'quad coil'? I see one coil. Where are the other three?

    Sorry for the noob questions.

    What gauge wire are you using and what is your target ohms?

    I believe he just happened to use the quad coil for this write up, this would truly be a single coil now that's its modified. I imagine the other coils could be rebuild the same way.

    I recently punched out and rebuilt a tripple coil TFV8 head using all these same steps, made one single coil down the middle just like this. Worked quite well I might add.

    This is awesome. I always figured it could be done, but seeing this rebuild step by step is pretty cool.

    How many failed attempts were there before you got this method down?
