    EVOD, Protank etc , micro coil and cotton wick = winning

    As the title says if you havnt tried it yet and your a evod or protank user get on it.
    After finally getting sick of fiddling with stock coils due to the fact they are not made very well these days eg wicking problems on evod and leaking protanks , just shitty built coils in general.
    Anyways I gave micro coils with some cotton wick with no flavour wick of any type and also removed the rubber cup that goes over the chimney and wow everything has improved.
    No dry hits, chain vaping no problems, no leaking protank and flavour is much better.
    Ive only been using them for the day so far but if you havnt tried it give it a go.
    The other bonus is if you use a coil and dont like the eliquid that much instead of trying to flush the coil or getting a new one , you can just pull the cotton out, rinse the coil, dry burn it and slide a new piece of cotton in and its as new ready for a different flavour.
    I watched riptrippers demo build and I can see why hes so excited , hes always excited but still.
    Ive even revisted some liquids and have found that I actually enjoy them, when before I did not.
    Cheers
    Note, if you do the mirco coil a mini blow torch of some sort is vital for squeezing the coil together and heating to get it to stay in shape, a lighter wont come close to getting it hot enough to do the job.

    Thanks for the tip... Happy to subscribe to Rip Trippers... he has done a great tutorial on building Protank MicroCoils.

    I'm going to give it a crack this weekend.

    So I watched the vid. One thing has me puzzled. Why do so many of these reviewers bum suck??????? You may as well not even vape. They cant be real ex smokers and just vaping for a pose.
    If its got tits or tyres, you got problems.

    This is my very first attempt at building a MicroCoil on a Mini Protank.

    It's about 10-11 wraps of 28 g Kanthal and reads 1.7 ohms on my SVD.

    Seems to vape fantasticly and heaps more flavour with a cotton wick...

    Very happy camper right now!

    The mesh with cotton hybrid wick is even better again for tobacco juices, talk about vapour

    Will standard cotton balls do the trick?

    Well, if they sucked that much 20mg vapour into their lungs, they'd pass out ...

    Yep, 100% cotton.

    As an aside, I built a microcoil last night for my EVOD based dripper. 9 turns of 30g wrapped around a 2 drill (5/64"), compressed with tweezers and heat, and used a 1.5 drill through the coil to hold it at the right height in the holder while assembling it. Works a treat.

    Bless his cotton socks! Love his enthusiasm.

    This all looks bloody scary to me though. If the coil did touch metal and short out what would that do to my ego twist??
