    Looking for build tips for mouth to lung RDAs

    Hey all,

    Just got some clone RDAs that are meant to be great for MTL vaping but couldn't find any solid guides on what type of builds are best for these bad boys.

    I got a Derringer, Magma, Origen and 2 others, the first three came repeatedly recommended for MTL RDAs.

    Should I be aiming for the same resistance as the premade coils i run in my tanks ie. 1.5-2.0 Ohms?

    I have 24,26,28 n 32 gauge kanthal ready to go, really hoping 30 gauge isnt the magic number.

    I guess dual coil is out of the question to achieve the high resistance I think I'm after or am I coming at this wrong?

    What would you guys suggest?

    Cheers n beers

    - I

    You should be able to build a 1.2 with the 32 no dramas. 3mm drill bit, and 8 wraps. But don't take my word for it. Do you have an ohm reader? Or just using your mod?
    Keep trying new things until you get the result you want.

    I don't have an ohm reader, was just going to use the mod. will pull the coil calc out and do some trials, thanks for the jumping off point.

    Steam ecig calculator will give you a better guide than my drunk ass will.

    If your going to start making your own coils you really should get yourself an ohms reader....

    32 is a bit thin and a pain to work with when rewicking. I've just got a single coil, 28g @ 1.2ohms in mine, works fine.

    Yep, couldn't agree more ... and it doubles as a atty holder while building too.

    I build with 28AWG mainly, occasionally with 30AWG so that the coil has rigidity for easy rewicking.
    Ignore the Super-moderator tag in my profile, I have resigned from that position but admin have not updated my profile as yet

    I bought this one from HOV, it was the cheapest I could find. Also has port to check your battery volts. I've found it to be a good unit. Needs 2 AA batteries to work.
