That build looks outstanding Bob!, just a quick squeeze like you said and it's perfect. I do like that deep juice well with the cotton laying in there.

22 gauge dual nano coil on my Igo-M man the coils are long... struggled to get them in there without touching the sides (12 turns on each coil)

Came out at 0.2 ohms and chucks the clouds... good flavour too when you ramp it up a bit on the Igo-M Good

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Ok. So I got silly. And unsuccessful. Decided to do a tiger coil.

Thats 1mm x .1 ribbon and .5mm kanthal.

It looks like this

Yes thats a single coil. I'm really a dual coil guy. However.......

Yes, thats a single coil at .22 ohm.

I got unsuccessful because when its not shorting on the inner top cap, its getting hotspots that destroy the flavour. This pisses me off.

Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it at this second.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Maybe not.

So I dug out some .2 kanthal, twisted it, then doubled it and twisted in the opposite direction.

[Image: 20140705_183911_zpsbfbvzvxm.jpg]

Five wraps/coil on clone screwdrivers and angled towards the drip tip.

[Image: 20140705_191139_zps6u3l2ouc.jpg]

It came out quite high resistance.

[Image: 20140705_191233_zps4js7mdaf.jpg]

But vapes ok none the less.

[Image: 20140705_191506_zpsjkqkigbp.jpg]

Boom lol

Addendum.

I fucking hate .2 kanthal, how people use it I do not know, its like coiling with human hair and far too resistive to current.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
LOL nice job buddy!!

I just did a 22 Gauge (0.65mm) dual coil sleeper build on my Omega. It came in at 0.1 ohms... took me a bloody hour to get that last leg in the hole ROFL.

Stupid tiny holes and awkward to build at the best of times.. but holy cow!!!

Oh BTW Graham... hows the flavour on that coil ? should be pretty outstanding

I'm going to have to try a sleeper build, dont angle your coils either, its not wicking brilliantly. I'll tolerate it for now and sort them out on the next rewick.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Yeah, I got mine level but I think they need pushing down a bit so they're closer to the airhole inlet... yep that sorted it. I was a hot vape with lacking vapour (considering the ohms)

Now it's much cooler and developing a lot more vapour Smile

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
That's odd! It's obviously firing but I thought the VTR had a low limit of around 0.6 ohms

TVF tested battery info to be found here
