Build or no
Ok I am looking for a way to cut my spending and buying coils is not cheap a lot of times as you know so I was thinking about buying stuff to build my own coils and I have people telling me I could save money but the others saying its a pain in the well. I also want to know what kind of tank holds the most e-juice lol

RE: Build or no
30mm tanks will hold most juice, things like the vcmt and ohmega alpha hold 10-11ml,  then there's the 25mm attys like the griffin, vcmt, boreas ect that hold 6-7ml of juice.

Yes coil building can be a pain in the ass, but it's so well worth it. I have the best coils around for a fraction of the price compared to a factory coil and have a much better vape.

RE: Build or no
You can easily learn to master simpler builds quickly (like twisted or even straight up single strand winds). You will definitely save money in the long run using your own. A set of winders like the Kuro Koilers makes it almost criminally easy.

The Aromamizer tank I use has a easy-to-build Velocity style deck and holds 6ml of juice. Cheap, nice starter RTA.

RE: Build or no
Building your own coils can be as complicated or as simple as you want. It can be a bit difficult at first, but once you've got the hang of it it's not that hard and it's very rewarding. You can buy pre-made twisted or Clapton wire and then make your own coils from that, which is just as good as making your own twisted or clapton wire by hand. Or you can start with just a simple coil and work your way up. You'll get much better flavor and vapor from a rebuildable atomizer using your own coils, and it's so satisfying when you build a perfect coil that vapes well. So yeah, it's definitely worth the effort if you want a spectacular vape, and it's not that hard to learn how to make coils.

RE: Build or no
DIY requires a small up-front invetment, but always saves a bunch of money in the long run.  This applies to coils, juice, automotive maintenance, home repir, and computer hardware.  Wink

Well said AJ!

If I can make decent coils - all hail the wonderful Kuro coil tools - then anyone can.

RE: Build or no
Depends - usage between 2ml and 30ml a day are within the bounds of normal. I'm just guessing but 10ml a day wouldn't seem to me very large or very little.

At that wattage a well wicked dripper will be under 20ml for even the most hardcore vaper.

RE: Build or no
I can easily go through 20ml a day on my days off. On a regular day maybe ten. I'm pretty hard core though.
