RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Rocket rebuildable atomiser - cheap ass kayfun style atomiser. 

This ones tried my patience.  Luckily its easy to drain and rebuild.

I'd been lenient with the cotton, the coil is a 1ohm .5mm ribbon micro coil. I rewicked it tonight riptrippers style.

This looks like a lot of cotton for such a little chamber.......it still flooded. Ive just been and drained it then packed in little puffs of cotton down each side, blown out the air chamber......success, finally getting a good vape out of this cheap ass atty. I'm a happy bunny, going to put this tank of hot cinnamon through it, then I'll load it up with a menthal vape to combat this dammed cold.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I decided to design and build my own dual coil tonight for the Nimbus.

Here are the coils after putting them in initially, they needed a little bit of tidying up and some dryburning.

End result was 0.9 ohms with a small cotton wick in each coil with a bulbous top as a reservoir. So far I'm pretty impressed as it's outperforming my previous 0.5 ohm dual nano coil build.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I'll add pics later today but my design worked out pretty miserable in the end. The problem is with such big airholes in this nimbus the coils and wicking have to be perfect.

Eventually I settled on a dual Diamond Coil setup. Comes in at 0.7 ohms and whoa this badboy works like it should. I thought my scar was on another level but this thing is insane! Big Grin

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
This is an SM20 I picked it up from wallbuys when they had their $6 off coupon for $10.50 or more I also bought an M5 and a rom nova. I like this little guy a lot. I did have to open up the air hole a little but it's a snap to rebuild with holes in the posts and no screwdriver or Allen wrench needed. This is four wraps of 28 on a 1/16 drill bit. Rolled cotton wick. Tastes great and hits like a champ. Also a breeze to re-wick. Dual O-rings for no leaks and adjustable screw on the bottom.

You cant beat that for the price, looks a great setup too. I'm loving my cotton clouds in my drippers. Zero leaks unless I'm stupid lol

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Tried some new stuff tonight. I used ribbon wire and cotton in my V5 drippe, a first for both. It came out at .5 ohm and hits like a truck. I'm more than happy.

Your using good 18650 cells with that right?  Sounds a good build but make sure your cells are capable

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I used .4 ribbon and that barely fit in the posts of the V5. For batteries I only use IMR's.
