Yeah kanthals cheap, its worth scrapping a bit just to get a feel for it, good luck on the battery upgrade, I'm almost out of .25 or else id twist you up a good length

That Is A Sweet tri-chimney, Graham! Shame it wasn't worth the time it took making it. All the crazy stuff out there and some of my favorite setups are single coils.

I got somewhere between 20 and 40 metres of the stuff so won't run out any time soon.

Want some? I can easily bung it in an envelope to you.

Could do, I could twist you a length up and get it back to you as well if you wish?

Cheers johnny, you gotta try these things out, its too much hot bare wire and not enough covering wick, I'll either try a single chimney coil or dual micro coils next build

Dug out another drill and gave it a better twisting. I found a little vice held the wire nicely while the drill did its thing.

I'll bung a few metres of 2.5 in an envelope on Monday.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Cool. 2.5 sounds fun, twenty billion wraps to get up to 1ohm?Angel


Another kayfun build. 1ohm dual .5mm ribbon micro coils.

Cotton in pre cutting, wetting and pasting down

Snugged in with bottom part of chimney fitted.

Slightly clearer shot, I probably could have got away with a touch less cotton as airflow is slighty restricted compared to the tri chimney build. It is however a much more pleasant vape, an all day set up if you will.

I've sat it back on the roller, I now have a fairly compact carry about device with good capacity both tank and cell wise in 18650 mode (2900mah/4.5ml) or extremely compact in 18350 mode. 

What I would like to do is fit a kick 2 for use in 18350 mode. Those puny cells taper off far too fast for my liking.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Thats my biggest fall down, I get that excited about trying it out, I forget to take pictures.  That or its f'ing freezing in the gords cave and I just want to get done asap lol. I probably only publish 40% of my builds, then regret not taking pictures when they work well

As a side note, in the above dual coil build, I made the mistake of using hot cinnamon to wet down the cotton......its taken 4 hours for the banana and cream to wash out the cinnamon flavour, its great now, could be more vapour but then, I've got used to the fog from the prometheusBig Grin not much seems to give much vapour compared to that

Yep exactly the same here Graham - I always forget. I think your 40% is pretty high Tongue

Hehe ouch - oh and that Prometheus does look awesome I have to say. Most definitely going to have to see about getting one some day soon

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
If you like your kracken,  and your kracken is anything like the few krackens I have seen, you'll love it. The krackens I've seen are nice, no question,  but to me this is a cut above in build quality and vape, just this needs to be down low, mines pulling about 35watts off a fresh battery......it could go higher, I need either a mod that takes my molicells or some vtc4's.....
