RE: What did you get today?
I want to hear how you make out with the Taifun.  I got a Kayfun Lite the other day and it's an exercise in frustration. Dash2

On a positive note, today my Omega 22mm dripper arrived.  Amazing bargain!!  Holy crap does it ever perform.  I started out with a 1.6 ohm micro coil and cotton and it was great at first but quickly reduced to shit.  I just redid it but this time I used 3x3mm silica wrapped with 4/5 coils of 28g kanthal in a single coil.  HOLY COW!  What a fog machine.  most vapour production I've ever had to date and the flavor is fantastic.  I'm very happy. Yahoo

The Taifun has given me no grief yet. It did take a dump all over my desk when I overfilled it though. Then it was a gurgling, flooding pain. My fault though.

I'll give it time before I decide but my first opinion is hugely positive, I'm delighted with it though it is a huge atomiser.

It is dead easy to set up, the deck getting out of the way while you wick and coil it makes it the simplest thing to rebuild I've come across. 

Not had a dry hit at any wattage I've tried it at. Next time I rebuild it it is getting a lower resistance coil and stuck on a mech. The flavour goes a bit at higher wattages, but that's probably the juice. There was a distinct haze in the living room last night which smelt a lot better than it used to. 

However, this is only 3 days experience so my viewpoint might change. A patient has one and it constantly gurgles and floods on them. Said patient has been vaping for years so probably has a lot more experience than me.

RE: What did you get today?
Don,  How are you setting up the wicking in the Taifun?  I believe they are almost identical to the Kayfun in that aspect.

I've tried cotton wicking twice now and the last I tried was 1mm silica wick and I still get dry hits even after a brief flooding with the silica.  Once I cleared the flooding it all went to crap.  I'm getting really frustrated with it.

RE: What did you get today?
Three approximately 30mm lengths of 2mm silica with a rough coil slapped round it.

Trimmed the wicks so there's just a couple of millimetres, say 1/16" sticking into the tank. I think 3mm would work as well or better as you basically want to fill the side entrances with wick so it doesn't flood. This juice doesn't say mix so I'm assuming at least 80%PG. Thicker juices may not wick as well?

On the Kayfun Todd here seems to be using about 4" of 3mm doubled over. The build is 20 minutes in.

I do't see why it couldn't be filled from the top.

Edit:
I see my literacy needs work. I put up about the Kayfun, not the Lite. Can't find the slaps head smiley.

Doh!

Edit 2:
Does this help?

On the kayfun. Just follow riptrippers video. Works like a charm. I did similar to my fogger with my taifun. Cotton and micro coil. Came out at 1.8ohm but vaping fine on my roller.

Oh. I always fill my kayfun from the top. Fill.  Start cap, , invert, screw home.

I also got a receipt from the post office today, hope dons in work tomorrow. ....

Nah, but now I know to drop by. It's only a mile and a half from here so the hounds can get a stroll in the freezing rain. Sad
