    Kayfun 3.1 Clone Micro Coil Ohm Problem Help Please

    HI guys

    So I'm a few days into rebuilding and for some reason on 28g wire around a 1.5mm drill bit I'm getting like 1.5ohms at 4 wraps?!

    According to what I've read 8 wraps should be getting me around .8ohms however when I wrap this amount I get a 2ish-2.2 ohm reading off my zmax VW.

    What gives? Really confused.

    Currently my coil is wrapped at like 4 wraps and is showing 1.5 ohms but it's really hot and giving funny tasting hits.

    I've cleaned the atty, soaked in detergent, wiped with metho, toothbrush etc.

    Getting mildly frustrated.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Gene

    is the coiled raised enough that it's not shorting or making a hot spot on the block

    ^ Yep its a mm or a bit more above the block.

    I thought it might have been too much cotton but I made my wick smaller and it was sightly improved but still hitting a bit hot and muted flavour.

    are you sure it's 28g and not 32g

    The packet said .2 gauge? Ordered from VapeKing at 28...

    Unless it was packaged wrongly?

    I think you have 32g based on this Coil wrapping | Steam Engine | free vaping calculators

    Hrmmm fair enough..

    I'll try wrapping the other kanthal I have which is supposed to be 30 and see how they compare and report back.

    Thanks.

    For a start, 28g is 0.32mm.

    0.2mm is 32g

    yeah if you validate your order and it was for 28g, then it appears they may have sent the wrong wire. double check and drop them a mail.

    looks like your coil works though.....
    amount saved by not smoking: $lots
    amount spent on vaping: $not enough

    It was the higher gauge.. for some reason I thought thinner = less res. Wrong wrong. Oh well.
