Demand it, even. Don't want to sizzle my gizzards in order to be able to use my go-to setup. I have a few weener mods, but would definitely rather not use them if I don't have to.
Hi TW - It does not get hot at all - the atty just gets warm - the vape is quite cool. This is the other good thing about MTL.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
OK, so I built a quick MTL setup. I made two mistakes.

1.) I built it on the Aromamizer Supreme. It just can't close off enough for a really tight draw. I covered the airflow ring with a silicone band and it helped. Seems it is just too leaky (airflow-wise) to get really tight.

2.) I used Iced Apple Juice. Probably shouldn't have used a menthol for my first return to MTL. I have enough trouble as it is.

It's not bad. I need to choose a better tank, if I have one. Supreme, Boreas, Aromamizer v2. That's my choices. I guess the v2 next time.

Winding little coils is tricky when you're used to bigger ones.

You have the perfect dripper for MTL - build the coil on your 13/9.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Personally, I find menthol/fruit combos to be the best MTL vape. My favorite so far is 1 part menthol to 2 parts blueberry. I'm surprised the menthol/apple wasn't sublime.

Very nice - part of show & tell is that you showed, now tell! Tongue What wire, what did it come it at and how does it perform? Smile

My guess.. 26g kanthal 26g 38g kanthal clapton parallel @.25
Does the closest guess win a prize??

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

Yes, the winner can meet me in Niagara Falls Canada and I'll buy the first round.... Tongue

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Just made a single, staged heating coil, FC (2x26g kanthal wrapped in 36g Ni80) paralleled with spiraled 26g SS316L. 5 wraps of FC 4 wraps of SS. Came out to be .16 ohm. Wild flavor! But I'd like to start building some higher ohm coils. Maybe in the .5 to .6 ohm range. Perhaps someone could suggest some builds for me to try. Single or dual coil, and obviously good flavor. My wire selection is limited though. I have 26g kanthal, 26g SS316L and 36G Nichrome 80. Any suggestions?
