RDA Help
Ok guys I just bought a vandy vape mesh RDA I have the kanthal mesh strip in it with cotton bacon on my voopoo drag. I wet the cotton down and when I take a hit off it, it is burning my throat. My mod is set at 80 watts and I'm using juice that's 70/30 I also feel like I'm lacking flavor compared to my valyrian tank any suggestions ?

RE: RDA Help
Make sure the mesh is not pushe askew a portion touching the atty in the wrong spot will cause a hot spot , otherwise Try a bit less cotton . Whe you rew wick be sur you have no hot spots .

RE: RDA Help
So I put a nickle strip in and rolled the cotton and packed under the coil before tightening the screws down now I've got an ohm reading of .07 and much smoother hits is .07 ohms safe on a regulated mod ?

RE: RDA Help
I work a bit with mesh , i suspect he build was to low for 80w . Wire gauage plays a huge roll in appropriate watage , wile a .15 a1 24g build will vape nice at 80w a .15 a1 28g will vaporize juice faster than it can wick scorching the cotton .
Use nickel in tc mode , watage gets it to hot and it produces toxic oxides

RE: RDA Help
So the mesh that came with it is
NI80
Kanthal A1
SS316L
They're pre-measured a bit long so I trim a bit off of the end insert 1 end into the platform and tighten it down, then I take a strip of cotton fold it over and then fold the mesh over it so it's good and tight then tighten 2nd clamp down. I ended up with .07ohm I'm vaping at 85 watts and it hits really good

RE: RDA Help
Ok Ni80 is Nichrome not nickel , so safe in watage mode . Glad you got it sorted .
