    Yep not bad. They are contact coils so there is a potential risk of the wraps shorting against each other, but if it fires evenly then you are good.

    The idea behind the contact coils is that it's small and fits in tiny decks, and that the coils up against each other pull the liquid out of the wick by capillary action between he wraps. You can have spitting issues if the small coil overheats the juice in the wick. Edit: because the heat is concentrated in a smaller area of the wick it can start vaporising the liquid inside the wick - hence the spitting.

    I've gone back to spaced coils because they are problem free and I find I get better flavour. You've got plenty of space on the deck so spaced coils would be no problem. All you do is wrap the contact coil as you have here then pull it out like stretching a spring - to the width of the posts if you want. Maybe try the spaced coil next time and see which one you prefer.

    Video link of spaced coils being made. Start at 3:30, even though it's on the Troll V2 RDA the theory is still correct.

    Lover of spaced coils here as well. Changed to spaced as I found SS in temp mode to be more stable in resistance. Also noticed improvement in flavour, zero spitting and very smooth vape.

    I have one coming from VapourEyes as well. Where did you purchase yours?

    Don't forget to lube up those o-rings a bit before putting the top cap back on the first time. They have a tendency to shred.
