RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Like it spas, 

Gords i wiah u were in the states i would try and send you some stuff to polish! 


i hear ya just built my first dual microcoil it came out at .5 ohms. It hits like a beast. It pops cracks and hammers some vapor out. Karla (my wife) tried hitting it and said it was sick as tiiittttsssahh. Lol jk. She finally to a small toke and she said it was awesome! Anyways, i still cant get off the twisted micro single coil at .7 ohms. Smile   Well we are at the happy hour drinking margaritas again so you know what that means!!!!

Good

Another no photo wick dip you can't see Tongue

New coil - Quadra Coil, nothing complicated but not heard of anyone doing it.

30 gauge Kanthal (0.25mm) Quad twisted (4 wires twisted)
5 wraps around a 2mm shaft = 0.5 ohms (this is gonna take a lot of work to get the coil adjusted - clamping together with tweezers won't work on this, you'll need some thin nose pliers)

Bear in mind it won't fit through the posts of most atties - didn't look like it will fit the Omega so I put it in my modded Scar.

Sick as Tits!!! Tongue and the flavour.... even better than yesterday!

Pictures or it didn't happen.

The trident works well with quad twisted wires....

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Last night I tried to set up a dual coil on my Whammy box. I used fifteen wraps of 28 on a 1/16th. The coils were dead nuts perfect but it wouldn't heat them fast enough for my liking. I was using three of the sony 30amp batteries, I even did a spring mod on it with copper wick. So it's not the batteries or resistance. The chip just won't drive it hard enough for that. 

I took one coil off leaving a single 15wrap coil and it was just boom, instant red hot. Obviously this chip doesn't do well at all with lower ohms but can crank even better with higher ohms. This is the cheap chip again. I think I might also put in a led readout on it for the voltage. They are only a couple bucks.

If the natural tendencies of mankind are so bad that it is not safe to permit people to be free, how is it that the tendencies of these organizers are always good? Do not the legislators and their appointed agents also belong to the human race? Or do they believe that they themselves are made of a finer clay than the rest of mankind?

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
It might be hitting the amp limit on thr board? A volt and anp meter would be interesting.


I recoiled my smok scar for my brothers Itaste totally wicked vv.....yeah it dont like 1.2ohm lol. Going to have to recoil it with my tiny ribbon wire to try and get it up to 1.5ohm......this is weird territory for me.

As a side note, silica really really sucks ball for flavour.

I took pictures just like spasmod' s for this one but I can photograph it if anyone cares....

Its a dual micro coil, kind of horizontally opposed, 0.4 ohm, silica wick.

The micro coils are not really micro coils, I forgot to heat and scrunch them before wicking them. But think they came out pretty good anyway. They are also made from a single strand of 28g kanthal.

Its working really good. But, next one I do will have more wicking material. This was kind of just an experiment


edit: open image in new tab to be able to actually see the coils
or click HERE to open it in a new tab


edit again: the reason I did the horizontally opposed coils like that is the AIOS only has one air hole at the moment, and its hard to get good airflow to both coils. The SS is too thick for me to want to drill a new hole by hand, so next time I am at my dads I will toss it on the drill press and get another hole in it. This approach seems to work good, so I will probably try to improve on it sometime in the next few days

I would say it is hitting it's limit. It simply will now perform with anything low ohm. I can crank the voltage up and it doesn't change a thing. Just slow heating. Now with higher ohm coils anything above 1 ohm it cranks and it does high ohm really well. Which really is fine with me anyway. 

I'm not really sure how to go about testing this board can it be done at the coil? There is no way to get to the leads on the board with my meter. 

Well full tests or not, it's good to know for people who might want to use this chip that it rocks at higher oHms and stinks when it comes to low ohm.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Far too much cotton I know but I like the capacity.
Twisted 0.3mm Kanthal twisted again. It was a pig to get onto the posts. No point in a dual coil as it only has one small air hole anyway. 0.6 Ohms. 3" drip tip. Works for me.
