    Finally a successful dive

    I have been playing with the Atmistique divers for a while now trying to come up with something easy that makes it work properly. I grabbed a few clones so that I could pull them apart and the coils are just prewicked NR-R-NR from Fasttech.

    There have always been niggly little annoyances that bugged me enough that I moved to Sophia's but my tinkering has paid off. Credit goes to the guys at ECF for some great ideas that work.

    Firstly grab a little insulator from an old protank and use that in the base.
    The directions tell you to use two little orings, using the insulator allows you to use one.
    When you use the prewicked coils seat the coil in the lower portion of the ceramic cup and cut the wicks 1.5mm away from the cup.
    Fluff the ends that are outside of the cup.
    When you put the ceramic in the base make sure the slots in the ceramic and the slot in the pin line up with the air slots in the base. (Best airflow)

    At this point don't prime the coil
    Check coil resistance it correct and you have no shorts.
    Carefully screw on the top tube and make sure the fluffy ends are still fluffy

    Check resistance

    Prime the coil through the top 5-6 drops
    Add a couple of drops to the fluffy wicks and flatten them to the ceramic.

    Put in your tank carefully (the wick slots have a tendency to cut orings so keep an eye on it)

    Again check resistance to see that you have not shifted the coil.

    These devices are designed for the scuba tank which has a bottom fill. This helps set the right air pressure in your tank. If your tank is top fill keep at enough of a tilt to have air escaping through the wick channels.

    Start slowly vaping and crank it when the wick and coil have woken up.

    And reading the Title I thought you had gone and done a PADI course.

    Good to hear your loving the Diver from Atmistique,

    I feel they kinda need the bump after losing one of their team in a Bicycle accident. RIP

    Cheers XX

    I have a lot of Atmistique gear but the diver always gave me strife. Leaking and dry hits.

    The neat thing is that you can also buy a grail which turns the base into a small dripping Atomizer. (I love mix and match)

    You can make the same thing if you are so inclined with the base, a simple drip shield and an ego sized drip tip. Very flavoursome vape and of course the best thing is that drip shield come in some lovely colours and designs.

    Customising your vape

    I will add photos probably tomorrow when the tank is empty and it behaves itself with this particular eliquid.

    There is room for a bigger micro coil (refer cigamajig) but I didn't have any of the right NR-R-NR gauge.

    I should say that I am using the V2 (the pins are slightly longer) so if you are using V1 then maybe add the extra o-ring.

    If the drip shield idea takes off you might be in demand for some 510 delrin drip tip converters

    No, I don't have a Diver, I just like looking at ingenious ideas (especially, drippers)

    The Original Grail was only for 306 Atties, the best housing ever.

    I did not like the V2 as much, it always gurgled with a 306 in it.

    Wait a minute... you put a diver in the V1......damn.

    Ok a photo for you GT

    From left to right

    This is the diver stripped down. I removed the flange by dremel. Normally you would use 2,3,4 little red orings depending on your device. Just using the orings gave me some leaking issues. I replaced most of them with the little insulator.

    Second is the coil and wicking, see how fluffy it is there is also a method of wicking with a bit of a wrap around of one leg of the wick, however I struggled with that. The recommendation of a higher coil also did not work. My best result was having the coil low 3mm silica braid and fluffy ends. I like dry burning so prefer silica.

    lastly the base in a drip shield with the ego driptip. Depending on your drip shield you may have to adjust the inner orings to get a secure fit.



    Just an additional note. If you have a diver v1 then remove the black insulation insert and add orings and or insulator to a cleaned pin. This will help with any leaking. (V1) Make sure your ceramic channels and wicks are at 90 degrees to your tube hole.
