    Protank3/areotank coils

    Anyone had a go at recoiling these, I've got both but don't fancy shelling out a $1.80 a pop because in the main I've been largely unimpressed with their performance. I've seen a couple of vague YouTube reviews so it can be done.

    This looks to be the easiest way: Kanger Aerotank Coil Rebuild - YouTube

    i feel the same way, they just seem to fail on me after 4-6 days without fail.

    4-6 days!? What are you vaping, nitric acid at 300W?

    I get at least 4 weeks easy. A quick rinse and dry every week, (no dry burn). None of my liquids are especially dark though.

    I had both areo tank coils fail on me out of the box they were both shorting I had to remove the stack and fiddle around with them and even after that they weren't right, they were so poorly wrapped it wasn't funny. The PT3 coils were a lot better but I only got 3 or 4 days out of one coil I'm going to soak and dry them I'm not sure about dry burning duel coils. All in all I think the kanger duel coils are absolute garbage I'm so unhappy with them I should have just got a protank 2 with an AFC base would have been a lot less hassle

    Ok so I've had a go at rebuilding an areotank coil using 2 x 1.8ohm pre made wick and wire with a 2mm piece of silica separating the 2 coils. But I've yet to check the resistance, now my question is if I put the coil on my itaste or Vamo and there's a dead short I won't blow myself up will I ?
    I watched a YouTube video where a guy made 2 micro coils on top of one another and he said resistance/non resistance wire wasn't required any advice very welcomed.

    Two 1.8 Ohm coils in parallel will come out at 0.9 Ohms. The Vamo V5 will only fire down to 1.2 Ohm coils. It wont blow up but it wont heat the coils either. It will just show some error code. Your Itaste vv v3 will have similar problems.

    You need to wind two coils of at least 3.6 Ohms each to get at least 1.8 Ohms when you parallel them up.

    EDIT: if you have microsoft Excel download this coil calculator: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...ulator_V3.xlsm

    if you have a device that shows resistance like a vamo or resistance checker, check it on there a few times before firing it up, it can be dangerous if something is wrong and you run it on a mech mod, your mostly safe if you fire it up with a protected battery or even a twist, but even still strange things can happen with the coil like staying on even after releasing the button on the device, it has to be unscrewed real quick or badness will follow, always check a new coil before firing it up to be safe

    no need for nr-r-nr wire, just dont dry burn it otherwise you could melt the rubber and get a bad taste, and if your doing dual coil, be sure to have good separation of the wires out the bottom of the coil
