RE: How do you dip yer wick?
sorry Don I meant I didn't have the atomizer in the middle of the picture Blush

Spas it doesn't vape as good as the dual coil but its still good Good
I prefer the square box type coils on the sub it holds a bit more juice and the chimney is quite a bit wider

if at first you don't succeed ,call it version 1.0

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
One of my Mutation X's had turned evil - the clouds coming out if it smelled lovely but things one shouldn't cough up (like toenails) were coming up. So it got a good clean and a mildly silly build got put in it.

0.8mm (20 gauge) wire - 9 wraps round a 3mm former. Two of those give me 0.178 ohms - the Sigelei will fire down to 0.15 apparently.
The coils

Wicked up. I had to twist one of the coils a bit so I could shove the cap on.

With monstrous coils like that, it needs the watts. It works nicely in the 75-90 watt range with the airless wide open.

It is one thirsty build though, and the cells get to know they've been working too.

I was wanting it a bit higher but it works well so I will leave it in Good

Is that coil resting directly on the airhole?  I usually keep mine a little higher , may try this.

Cman it's not resting on the air hole, if it was touching that would cause a short and the atty wouldn't fire. So it still needs to be just a hair above the air hole.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
As long as it gives you what you want, it's all good.

If it doesn't then there's room for improvement.

Looks OK to me

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I'm not getting very much flavor from it, amount of vapor is fine though

edit:
Just built it with dual twisted 28g, 7 wraps at 0.3 ohm and it is much better!

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
You might want to use a little less cotton though. That can help.
