RE: Tank or RDA?
My clt is a right bast' to get apart when it's dry! I just drip down the chuff cap so it's not an issue until rebuild time.Smile
.32 is 28g. dual 5 wraps over a 2mm bit will give you .4 it's a nice mellow vape, lots of flavour. Me being me I'd wrap it parallel 6-7 wraps round a 2mm bit, should land around .3 maybe a little under.. it'll be a warmer vape but put out way more flavour and vapour.

RE: Tank or RDA?
When I started I always used a tank... Simply because it wasn't as harsh of a hit as well as it was just a lot easier. But now i use a dripper all the time. The flavor is better in my opinion. It can handle more watts. It does require more work. i.e. building coils, changing out cotton. Rather than just changing a tank coil. But as GENTLY said, the tank is a lot better for on the move or being at work. An RDA is better for just sitting around at home and enjoying. HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL!

RE: Tank or RDA?
The resistance needed varies. It depends on your style of vaping - if you vape mouth to lung then you need a higher resistance and lower power, if you direct lung inhale then you want a lower resistance and therefore higher power.

Then airflow - the more air, the more power you need.

This calculator is invaluable. I find 0.32mm wire a little thin (It is 28 gauge BTW) and it is easy to damage coils. I prefer thicker wire but that makes for very large coils if you want higher resistance.

The top cap just pulls off but often with new atomisers the O rings can be very stiff. It is easiest to move the cap when the atomiser is screwed onto a mod.

Speaking of cranky o-rings, I use a bit of o-ring lube on them after each thorough RDA washing. It will extend the life of the rings exponentially. Some folks use petroleum jelly but I've found that swells the o-ring and they don't fit right anymore after a while.

VG or PG work well as O ring lubes and have no juice compatibility issues.

I am about to get an rda and I've used my friends many times and I prefer an rda over my arctic tank because, you get way more flavor. I like to change flavors a lot too so rdas are good for me: )

RE: Tank or RDA?
So I've got an infinite clt v3. Today I've made a parallel Coil with my father. The coil is 0.50 ohm. It looks good and I did some Japanese Cotton between the coil. I put some juice on it and vaped. The flavor is good but sometimes when a take a long Vape I get a burned taste.  I don't know,  why the cotton is juicy. I'm vaping at 35 -  40 watts

RE: Tank or RDA?
It sounds like you probably put too much cotton in the coil, if it's in there too tight it won't be able to wick well enough, so you'll get a decent hit at first then it'll start to taste burnt if you hit it too long or too hard. Just try re-wicking it with a little less cotton and see if that helps.
