    Aspire Nautilus Vertical Coil Rebuild

    Hey fellow vapers!

    Wanted to drop by and share my most recent Nautilus rebuild:

    24 gauge 12/11 wrap @ 2mm. Gave about 0.8ohms from memory. Because you drag air through the post holes on the bottom in these coils you would need to wick the outside of the coil, and feed the cotton through the slit holes on the sides.



    Happy vaping!

    I wrapped the cotton around the coil, leaving 'wings', and put it in the fixture with the wings coming out the slit holes. Although I don't see why you couldn't poke the cotton down the sides, as long as the coil is covered properly.

    Nah, everything else is stock

    It would bottleneck at the centre pin anyway, wouldn't be much point.

    I tried to rebuild my nautilus coild before reading this thread and failed miserably.
    I got connection and a reading but when i fired it it just gurgled. Are you saying the wicking material needs to poke out of the holes?
    What if i thread some cotton through the coil and pack down a heap of cotton at the bottom of the coil so it gets soaked from the tank?

    I've read that drilling out the air holes is a great way to improve the Nautilus performance.

    whats a 1/8th drill bit? I drilled mine out to 3mm and its improved but not as good as the silo. Still needs another mil I reckon.
