    Okay I re-did the whole thing and tested burning it without juice.
    Still the same horrible burnt taste and less vapour.

    Attached are some pics ... can someone please tell me where I am going wrong ?
    I am using a 100% PV juice.

    Also I've found that my juice get a bit of discolouration after some time.
    Maybe this is because of the oxidised steel mesh continuously in the juice, just wondering how good that'll be.

    My guess is maybe its not wicking but not 100% sure as im still learning aswell. Have you put some juice straight on the coils and tried vaping it that way.

    You need a couple of 6mm m3 washers on your top nut connection to reduce that open air wire run from post to wick, plus your coils are loose on your wick:
    For anyone still struggling with their wraps.
    Loose wraps sink ships LOL. So Do minor shorts
    As we know you should see no air, when you do your dry fire and get those coils glowing you can more each wrap of coil one at a time to take up any slack (as long as there not really loose)
    If you wrap your coil with enough gap between each wrap this gives you more adjustment potential.
    Imagine you have a 3/4 wrap and the coil is like this: [[[ ,but you have air gaps or looseness,or minor shorts. Do your dry fire and one wrap at a lime with a tooth pick move the hot coil like [[/ then [// then /// ,I hope you get my drift.

    Also...... it seems like you have used the screw post..... DO NOT USE THIS! you have a big ass section of wire in open air...

    You need to use the "fill" hole next to the wick. For everyone else, look at the second pic.

    This will DEFINITELY be why you are getting that metallic/burnt taste.

    First of all Thanks for posting your ideas and helping out.


    It is making sense to me now so off to the drawing board tonight with these ideas.
    one thing I noticed as well is that the piece of wire which connects to the negative terminal is also glowing RED.
    So too much wire is exposed to air .... maybe that's why dry burning metallic taste is coming up.

    I'll let you all know how I went .....

    Yep in pic 3 I can see a massive hot spot on the neg leg of wire. Most definitely this is your main problem, replace the "fill screw" nearest the wick & use that as your neg connection. That alone may solve your issues but most likely you will still have some minor bugs to work out after doing that.

    So now I have moved the wick right next to the negative post
    I have now minimal write exposed in air
    Its a lot better but after about 5 6 hours the write which connects
    to the positive terminal started to glow red again causing burnt taste

    I also tried to bend the wick close to the positive
    Still no joy write still glowing
    Someone Haag suggested using washers will investigate that as well

    Getting closer learning

    Will post pics soon
