    Silica woes

    My juice keeps getting burnt, has always been this way when i use silica. Anyone got any tips? Im using a 1.5ohm coil at 3.2-3.6volt. Was the reason i gave up on clearos and went to cartos. Really wanna use my diver as when its first set up its a great vape but just turns to crap by the end of the day and dont wanna be rebuilding once or twice a day.

    Silica, use a bottom coiled device where the wick is kept wet, or keep your ohms at 1.8 or more (depending on the device) ... is my experience. I have a Killer (which is similar to a Diver) at 1.8 ohms.

    wow! that does not happen to my juice mate. My diver is setup to about 1.5 average. I do have some juices that can gunk up the coil quickly but i dry burn and get it off every week or so. I am using ekowool in it if that helps.

    When I get dry hits on the diver, give it a few good hard tokes through the drip tip without firing the mod. What size silica are you using? And how long are you making the wicks coming out of the ceramic?
    Move along!!! Nothing to see here.

    Coil too tight??
    Too much glucose in your juice??
    Does that happen to all your juices?

    Using full res wire as i have no 'no-res' wire. Using 30g with about 4wraps getting about 1.4-1.6
    Yeh is pic of fresh juice and juice in tank is after a days work
    Using 2mm silica doubled up with about 5mm tail out side of ceramic
    Dunno if wrapping too tight, i pre fire wire and wrap with a sewing pin. I used to have problems with mbv juices on clearos turning juice black and havent used silica until a couple weeks ago. Juice in pic is vape dudes key lime pie

    IMO the full res wire is probably the problem.
    A decent amount of the resistance you're reading is wire that's just eating up power and making the whole atty hot.
    Take away the wire that's not in a coil and not vaporising juice, and you've probably got about an ohm of actual coil.
