Great news. Its a ball ache at first but you just gotta keep at it. You soon figure out whats wrong.

The good thing about drippers as a learning platform is you dont have to drain em

Very true

Glad you're getting your head around it and it's starting to show promise Apt

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Problems remained ongoing with the wicking in the Kraken so I've resorted to a drastic new approach... Now it's sporting a dual coil 0.6 ohm setup.

So far so good let's see how it rolls, it seems counter intuitive but I think I may be on to something here Smile

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Been playing with tiger coils tonight. I'll say one thing, they end up looking dammed scruffy, but they work, my god do they work. I used .25 kanthal and .5x.1 kanthal ribbon, lined it up, twisted both ends. I then trapped on end in my hobby vice, the other in the chuck of my battery drill and then slowly used the drill to twist the two together. 

The victims in this experiment were my trusty drilled out igo w, that ended up with a single .9 ohm three mm 7 wrap coil.

If you look carefully,  you can see the coil is lifted off the bed of cotton, only a couple of mm, but it made a dramatic difference to vapour production,  I'm getting the same or greater vapour out of this now than I used to get out of .8 ohm dual micro coils,  the difference is warm up time is instantaneous.  This was my second victim......the first was my prometheus. I originally coiled and wicked it with 1.3ohm dual micro coils, made with .25 kanthal. 

The problem was, due to the airflow, it was a cold vape, this thing needs to sub ohm, it really comes alive. 

[Image: 20140111_192035_zpszlazfjam.jpg]

What we have here is 8 wraps per side, 2mm diameter. After a lot of pulsing and pinching and moving them about to avoid any shorts and line up with the wick holes, the resistance had risen from .5ohm to .6ohm, something I'm happier about given battery safety, your average pull is far above the pulse time quoted for the limits on most cells, taking that .1ohm step up drops the current to 6a worst case scenario, in the real world, when you account for voltage sag, that drops to a more sane level that I'm quite happy to subject my panasonic pd cells to.

The finished result, ready to vape, looks like this.

The result, is impressive, flavour is up there, easily as good as my kayfun. The vape is now warm and the clouds are 'kin hugeCool couple that with such an easy build, and that is why I love my prometheus. I looks great and works great on the private v2,  a mod that is imo vastly underrated.

And again, the warm up time is instantaneous,  no more holding the button as you raise the mod, the chambers full by that point. 

Gords is extremely happy and will be spending the night seriously denting his eliquid suppliesBig Grin

Hah fantastic job buddy!! that looks great - I seriously need to remember to take pics of my coils too. I've done the same as you except using .32mm Kanthal

Otherwise it's identical... plenty of clouds in da house tonight then Big Grin

Yep, toni cant see the shit she's watching on tv lol.

The igo is fricken awesome with this set up. Well pleased with both builds and both fairly easy to achieve too.

Loving the zero warm up time too, to me, that lag is all wasted electrons lol

Oh yeah that warm up time does my head in lol that's why when I use the .32mm wire I go well below 1 ohm on a dual coil otherwise it's painful Big Grin

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Lol Don. I should have sneaked a dripper into your last care package.

High (well ok 1.2ohm) resistance dripper on the vamo at 15watts is just as much fun.

The prometheus is clocking in at 25watts based on .6 ohm resistance at 3.9v it certainly made me cough on a fresh cell lol
