Aspire cf mod with an RDA?
I have been using the cf mod with an Atlantis tank and want to move on to using an RDA. Does anyone currently use an RDA on the CF mod? Is it worth it to be doing on the CF mod or should I just buy an all new mechanical mod? 

Not used before but have got an understanding for what is involved just want to make sure if the CF mod is suitable for use with an RDA.

Thanks.

Thanks guys just need to figure out the best ohms for it now this is all new to me so want to make sure I'm doing everything right for the best experience and no battery failure and take it slowly.

RE: Aspire cf mod with an RDA?
You're very welcome... for a little advice to potentially help you out a little further. I would be personally inclined to start out with a 1 ohm single coil on a dripper. It won't be quite as much output or clouds as the 0.5 ohm coil atlantis but it will allow you to get the feel of it.

What you do tend to find with RDA's (most RDA's) vs tanks is the vape will feel somewhat warmer than you're used to with a similar airflow level on the tank. The flavour and throat hit is also likely to be more intense.

28G A1 Kanthal is a nice versatile size of wire to begin with which will serve you well until you potentially reach the lower resistance levels.

Here's a handy calculator that may help also http://coiltoy.ermeso.com/

If you get stuck, just give us a shout for advice Good2

ok so before I read this I went for it and bought the following: 
-smok dual coil caterpillar adjustable airflow rda.
-muji Japanese organic cotton
-A1 kanthal 0.20mm 32.0 awg
-omnitester resistance and voltage meter

will this be ok or have I jumped into the deep end. Haha Confused

RE: Aspire cf mod with an RDA?
32G will be fine if you install a dual coil and should perform well. I've actually used 32G many times for twisted Kanthal builds too.

Good to see you picked up a resistance tester... invaluable bit if kit that!

Let us know how you get on Good

RE: Aspire cf mod with an RDA?
Welcome to the forum Smile 

32ga kkanthal is thinner than 28ga that Spas suggested, so you'll have higher resistance with the same amount of wraps. I personally prefer slightly thicker wire, 28ga-26ga, but as long as you make it work it's fine. Japanese cotton is supposed to be spectacular, though I personally use rayon instead because I have more than a lifetime supply at home and it's what I'm used to. Glad to hear you got an ohm reader, many people forget that when they're starting out and it annoys me since you really need one so you can know what resistance you're working with to keep you and your cells safe. Most dual-coil atties can be built with just a single coil, and even if yours can't, dual coils aren't too hard. So all-in-all, good choice Smile iif you have any questions about it, just ask! 

Ah Spas, you beat me to the punch XD

Thank you man how much cotton would you suggest putting in per coil and I heard that you shouldn't dry burn it either coz it can catch Fire so should I be dripping on it more regularly than if I used other materials?

hi flesher welcome to TVF
