    32g to 28g coil

    Hi again all

    Question.. I only use 32g and build single coil at around 1.6 to 1-8.
    So I just got some 28g and built a 1.6 coil... And it Vapes better but my q is... It's popping and crackling every time I Vape it lol, what's that about?

    Lol exactly Chris!!! It doesn't bother me at all, infact it's super amusing to me (you know what they say....small things amuse etc)
    But I am so curious as to what's going on under the hood so to speak

    My take on it was contraction and expansion.. Like a doorframe in summer and winter. I'm probably completely wrong but I noticed that when I first fired her up to test the coil it took a while to heat up. Whereas when I use 32g It'd heat up very quickly. It could be that? Lol it's a crackling mystery to me. Still amusing to my ears whatever the reason may be! Or maybe I'm terrible at coils and stuffed it up. Sure Vapes nicely though.

    used to happen to me - imo if its a micro coil its because the coil still has gaps in it - either gaps between the coil windings or between the coil and the cotton - juice collects there and pops when heated

    try squeezing the coil between ceramic tweezers while its hot and let it cool while held together by the tweezers so that it joins - also make sure the cotton is not too loose inside the coil

    Hi Avtek. Thanks heaps for that! I'll buy some and give it a shot. I just had a look and a middle wrap and last wrap is separated just a little, I just use metal dolphin nose pliers to adjust while not firing, so I grab those and have a go. Thanks a lot!

    fluffy - u can still use your pliers as long as you dont have them touching the coil while you are firing - but using them while the coil is cold doesnt do anything

    the coil has to be hot - ie fire it up to get hot - release firing button then straight away clamp the coil with the pliers and hold together while the coil cools - repeat process - you dont have to clamp hard or anything

    the ceramic tweezers make it easier and i would still get them but you should be able to close the gaps doing the above with your current pliers

    Non-contact coils can snap, crackle and pop too. As can coils with the correct amount of wick. My eGo-ONE CLRs do it all the time in the smaller tanks, but not in the mega tank ...
