I'm guessing about 1.1 or so. I haven't measured it yet once it's up and going. I have to say I'm pretty happy with this 3D. I have yet to find a Genesis style that I like so this might be the closest I get. I wish the tank was a little bigger though. (I'm a chain vapor right now, I cut back on the nic so I should have expected it.) It's still a little light on the flavor compared with a small dripper but with a little extra flavor in the juice it's as good a flavor as I have gotten and the hit is nice and smooth. 

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?

Cool, I checked your build post too and it seems like a well designed atty.. might have to save up for one. It must be handy not having to drip every couple of minutes too.

You got yours from FT didn't you or was it Focalecig ?

Focalecig. I do like not dripping as often that's for sure.

went up to my mates last night to have another play with the podiac tns genny the wick holes are around 5 or 6mm so he got some voodoo wick (its has a hole running through the middle) and rolled a mesh straw through the middle

it sucks up the juice really well dropped it to 0.8 ohms and opened the air hole up and its vaping like a trooper

[Image: wick.jpg]

its really thick vape with lots of flavour
going to drop it to 0.5 next week when I go up
the vape isn't warm at 0.8 

It's nice to see you enjoying yourself Smile Which atty is that btw ? it looks pretty nice - I don't think I've seen it before.

*Ignore me I've just read the post properly* Big Grin

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I thought I'd done a good job on the Kraken. Made some mesh wicks per Mawsley's advice. Look much nicer than they usually do. Made a pair of micro coils - 8 turns of 0.3mm Kanthal which works out around an ohm according to my Fluke. They're not pretty though and I lost the centre post screw. Fortunately I had a bag of M2.5 hex head screws. The coils aren't pretty though.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Nice one Don! I noticed how the insides of your mesh coils are full and not hollow like mine always were. I wonder if that's where my wicking problems are?

I was going to say "Dang! that's a lot of wire and those coils are huge!!" then I remembered how everything looks massive in the pictures and those coils are much smaller than they look Tongue

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Yeah, they'd be 3-4mm long. Close up pics can be confusing - it's a 22mm atty.

Need to try for prettier coils though.. Smile
