It says its a wider grane or bigger juice fibers ......I guess its like different noodles some skinny some thick .......or that's how I see it
Tell us a little about your coil(s), your RDA, and your mod for starters. I'm sure someone here will have some insight as to what you could do once they know what you're working with.ok. hope im posting in the right place....i have mastered low ohm builds....well to my satisfaction anyway.... i can get great flavour at low ohms, but im thinking its got to be a way to get that same flavour in say a .5 ohm range, just cant seem to get the right combination....any ideas? what im i missing or am i just too used to loads of flavour from lower ohms?
It's exactly 1.0 better! Sorry, couldn't help myself.Whats different about it?
I'm still trying to break the coil code. I know it depends on the juice and atty but I keep thinking that if I pay enough attention to heat flux and heat capacity (and keep wrapping more coils) that I'll find something that is a great balance. High-ish heat, quick-ish ramp and lots of flava!Not a super sub ohmer here but ,i hear KoJenDo cotton is pretty good..picked up some along with a 30ft roll of kanthal 26g to try my subtank nano when it gets here.
My kayfun and Taifun are my best flavor tanks so far...ive found using alot of watts kills taste despite what ohm coil you use.
In the end you are either using more volts with less watts or more watts with less volts...somewhere along the lines they cross like a motor does with torque and horsepower.
Ive built coils with instant ramp up..coils with slower ramp up (either thicker gage wire or higher ohms with more wraps) but in the end i always go back to the happy medium on either tank.
28g on 2.4mm i.d. 5/6 wraps for high 1.2 low 1.3ohm coils and true raw organic cotton for wick.
Inconsistent juice is a real thing. I got a 5ml sample of a well-known brand and loved it. Bought a 30ml, loved it. Bought 120ml and it was disgusting. Thought maybe it was just me having too much of it and getting burnt out on it so I started giving it away to friends. All of them had had the same flavor before and came back and said that mine was no good.Ok. For instance on my smok m80 I done a single coil buil at .58 with I beleive it was with 24g kanthol in the pineapple atty, vaping at around 35 watts seems to do pretty good.... I got lots of mods and atty been trying different things, I'm actually thinking it may be the juice itself being inconsistent. Beards no 5 3mg. Doesn't seem to taste the same when I get it in the bigger 30ml bottles
I like 26ga Kanthal dual coils. 2.4mm 6 wrap or so. Depends on the atty but it works pretty well at 20-30 watts.But what I'm soothing for is to get a good build to vape at around 20-25 watts
I torched some to clean it up and fingers ended up covered with shiny dust particles. Made me leery about using it after torching. The amount when you cut is is bad enough, but after torching it's terrible.I always was kind of leery about readyxwicks,because of the amount of fibers that are created when you cut the stuff. it almost turns to powder and I was always worried about inhaling it.
Yeah I vaped porous ceramic wicks for a long time,and a few of us ceramic guys tried readywick.....it never really stuck.it doesn't carry flavor as well as porous ceramic and I don't think it performs particularly well either....but that dust turned me off to it immediately.I torched some to clean it up and fingers ended up covered with shiny dust particles.

My understanding is that a clapton with more than one wire in the center is "fused". It started as a parallel coil of large wire wrapped in small wire but I call anything with multiple inner wires "fused" now. I might be wrong though. Happens all the time.What makes a clapton fused? And what's the difference? What can I get with 26 gauge wire and a counterclockwise-only spinning dremel? I can't really build a clapton because the dremel is too fast.
Gorgeous build as always. You just dropped a new concept on me (again). Paralleling the small wraps. Someone stop me when my BS gets out of control but wouldn't paralleling those wires help with ramp time and lower resistance? Even if you use two pieces of the same gauge? Why only use two? Three is better than two. When will it stop?! I'm going to parallel 24ga then triple parallel wrap that with 38ga. I guess that would be a fused triple clapton? Double fused triple wrapped clapton duals? But I usually get mine scattered smothered and covered....I just shared this in the "post your builds" thread, but it applies here as well. You could use a kanthal core for a higher resistance build. I buy my 36g Nichrome clapton wire from twistedmesses.com, i think it's $20 for 250ft. Regardless, it is the BEST for claptons. This build is one of my favorites for flavor ever. Even if you're not ready for claptons yet, put this in your back pocket because it's simply amazing.
I used a 22g N80 core, with 36g & 38g wraps. The two different sized wraps were just for looks, there is very little, if any, difference between using just either one. But the large core and small clapton wires work AMAZING for both flavor and vapor (see video for performance). They also heat up instantaneously, as opposed to 28-32g wraps like commonly seen. Flavor on this build is just nonsensical, it's so good.
I'm a flavor chaser myself, and i cannot say enough good things about working with nichrome. Surface area helps dramatically with flavor, so using a lower resistance wire lets you add a few wraps to achieve the same resistance compared to kanthal. If i had the same selection at my disposal i would start with 24g zipper coils. Zipper coils for me achieve the best flavor aside from claptons. I can post a link to an awesome tutorial on zipper coils if you want. Flavor chasing is just that-a chase haha. One that never seems to end
Have u seen anything on titanium wire idk about that i know that it will oxidized and I haven't seen too many people running titanium wireHere ya go:
I would highly suggest giving his videos a watching, they're all immensely informative and in-depth. I've learned a lot of what i know from Twistedmesses' tutorials
From what i understand it's only safe to use in temp control devices. A quick google search turned up this article:Have u seen anything on titanium wire idk about that i know that it will oxidized and I haven't seen too many people running titanium wire
Crazy build! I bet it is flavor city. It took me a minute to wrap my head around a 0.13 ohm coil being fired at 22.5W.Okay here's a curveball away from RDAs.
I triple twisted some 32 gauge Ni200 and found it to be pretty delicate but manageable. This coil is on a Ivogo Kayfun mini with the AFC screw removed, it's 9 wraps and was built on a 3/32" drill bit, it rings out at 0.13 ohm on both my tester and the DNA40.
I prepped the coil by heating it on a mechanical mod and pinching like any contact coil although I quenched the coil with cold tap water after each heating.
It's wicked with Cellucotton and I had to hold one side of the coil with a fingernail while pulling the Cellucotton through from the other.
I was hitting the coil with 22.5 watts at 440F and I liked it a lot, not the longevity of a spaced coil but but real close to RDA flavor from a tank. A slightly warm vape even with the length of the mini and loads of vapor with really good flavor. I vape 50/50 most of the time.
I cut the wick even with the top of the chimney, soaked it, pushed the ends down into the liquid channel area, made little channels down through the with with a needle to the liquid channels, closed it up, filled it up and vaped.
dude smaller diameter gives you better flavor, no doubt about itNothing wrong with some 26ga duals. That's my favorite size wire. Have you noticed a difference between 2mm and 3mm coils when related to flavor? I wrap a little smaller in my Derringer and hobo (2.4mm) so they will fit but I usually default to 1/8" or a little bigger than 3mm in my other attys. It's just easier to wrap and wick for me.
I'll have to give it a try. I've wrapped nanos before and it didn't blow me away. I'll try something like 2mm with wick inside the coils and see what's up. Thanks for the advice.
C'mon now! I don't need excuses to buy more RDA's. My mixing table looks like a RDA graveyard already. Some of them just laying there cock-eyed, uncapped, still wicked. There's so many I can't even take the time to properly bury them cleanly back into the box whence they came.Best flavor atty IMO, Veritas FTW. Old one but excellent one. Everyone wants to put vertial coils in it and thats fine but the best vape (IMO) comes from a single horizontal coil directly in front of the airflow. Intense flavor decent vapor production but flavor is out of this world!!!
what rda is that? i like how center is dual and the grubs are triangular bet those would be hard as fuck to strip out the grub headsOk so I still have a little PTSD from wrapping @scarecrowjenkins ' Clapton suggestion but it really does rock the fuck out. My juice went from "meh on strength and a little boring in profile" to "a little overflavored and I can taste every single one of the 7 flavorings I used". I'm sold. As soon as I can get one of those visor/magnifying glass things I'll be wrapping lots of them.
In other news, braided some 28ga last night... The first run was a fail but was some good practice for round 2. I think this is too loose and the 4 wrap single coil was 0.16 ohm... Need a tighter braid and another wrap. Might flatten it too. Then, of course clapton that with parallel 38ga.
It's a MutationX v2. I hated those screws for the few hours I lost the screwdriver for them but those and the #2 phillips screws in my MX v1 are the ONLY screws I haven't stripped. I really like the triangle screws but this RDA is the only one I've seen them on. I actually chipped the corner of the screwdriver off , screws are still fine.what rda is that? i like how center is dual and the grubs are triangular bet those would be hard as fuck to strip out the grub heads
