7 wrap twisted micro coil 1 piece of 28 gauge (.3) wire and 1 piece of .5x.1 ribbon comes out to 1.1 ohms.  Has nice flavor and ok vapor, either it is dry hitting a little or either it is chewing threw some juice!  I take about 6 or 7 hits and if I go much further it get a dry hit!

Also just about done with a TriCro coil with 28 gauge (.3) wire.  Will have to install this one tomorrow as I don't have a torch at work to tighten up the micro coil and nano coils.  On a little building spree like gords gets on.... lol Cool

Good

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
nice build, try giving the coil a bit of room with the cotton, I find they can be over wicked.

thats a .3 ohm build and its been working fine for a while now, I find too much cotton over wicks, that gives plenty of use for a dripper and you can get both wicks pretty dry without getting dry hits, the vapour production is awesome, I can only use this in the van with a window open.......window closed and I'm going to crash....

with the trico coil, you should be able to tighten everything up on the mod, just pulse and squeze, thats all i do now, I just use the torch for tiger coils and prepping mesh or kanthal.

Whoa Apt, some nice coil building work right there!! keen to see what you thin of the Tricro coil - they work very well Smile

6 or 7 hits is right around the expected ball park for that type of coil btw Tongue

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
Thanks for tips! Still haven't finished the Tricro. 

.3 ohm wowzers! I figure that to run a dual coil you have to have 2 holes in the top cap? None of my cheapies have two holes only one.  

Built the wife a 2.0 ohm micro coil on her fuchsia mini dripper phoenix clone. She is loving it and it fits the ego battery perfectly.

Welcome to the coil building club brother! Smile sounds like you're doing a wonderful job.

You can run dual coils with a single hole but I wouldn't recommend it - it's liable to make you choke, especially at .3 ohms... one thing's for sure, you need EXACTLY the right type of cell for those kinds of Amp draws

0.3 ohms could mean you're pushing anything up to 53 watts @13 Amps

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I use samsung inr18650 15m cells,  they seem to be working if anything, better than vtc4's, both Wayne and myself are using trident rda's which work extremely well with multiple airflow options. Mine is a 1:1 clone,  including the copper centre pin, it hits very hard with very little volt drop under load (.28v, thats down to the cells too).

Consider though, the whole mod needs to be up to those loads, I polished the crappy silver plating off the contacts, used a spring from intloutdoor for my tailspring and the whole mod is extremely well built as is the atty.

I'm actually seriously thinking of getting another high end mod and atty. 

I've been offered a mister v1 ( bottom coil hybrid ) which I'm really considering, but I'm also looking at a pisces t http://shmovapes.co.uk/mechanical-mods/9-pisces-t-mechanical-telescopic-mod-full-ss.html 
And double cross rda (http://shmovapes.co.uk/atomizers/25-doub...moon.html) I've just sold my suzuki and have some birthday money so I quite fancy treating myself, I do really like the pisces t.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
I hear ya wow. I have the efest v2 2000 mah 18650 battery is that a pretty capable battery? Hope so i never really bought really good batteries for flashlights. I also have some cgr18650ea's also red sanyo 2600 mah and us18650gr's. Dont know which are the better of the bunch but thats what i have. Lol

Did a little metering today and a fully charged us18650gr dropping thr voltage down to 4.0 and pulling about 2.5 amps. This is on a microcoil thats measuring 1.5 ohms (it was orgionally whem installed at 1.3 ohm). By the calculations it is showing these numbers
10.45 watts
3.96 volts 
1.5 ohms
2.64 amps
Nothing impressive i must say. Lol like the vape though. 

Off to build another lower ohm coil as the tricro coill sucks Sad  For me that is. Starting to understand the variable wattage devices and the benefits they have.

RE: How do you dip yer wick?
There's a few charts available online for common vaping cells and their safe minimum resistance builds.  Typically the 15m cells dont appear on them lol.  I got mine locally for twelve quid a pair. I do really recommend finding out what your cells will take before firing up a low ohm build and if your unsure, dont fire it.

That double cross device is insane. Hope you don't intend to use it in the van unless you remove the windscreen first. Smile
