    Dual Wick Genesis Thoughts, Hints, Tips & Proven Setups

    Hi genesis friends.
    with all the latest gennys and hybrids being released I am hoping this thread will be place to share views, knowledge, inspiration and technical advice for all those experimenting with dual wicks.
    Personally I love to fiddle,however after trying dual wicks a month or so ago in my modded AGA-T on mech mod Paps, I quickly went back to single wick set-ups, feeling all the fuss and hassle didn't marry with the hype.
    I wasn't convinced that the shorter battery life and more fiddly than usual setup was worth this elusive "awesome vape"
    As I type this though, I am vaping a dual wick AGA-T setup dual 30g Kanthal 4wrap 1.4 Ohm coils giving a 0.7 Ohm final resistance on two 80mm #200 mesh 17g center channel, and although most setups I read about are around 0.6 Ohm or lower, this aint half bad on the Paps.
    I'm still at the seasoning stage, so flavor and vapor will no doubt improve.

    So share you thoughts, single wick vs dual wick vs u-wick, thick wick vs thin wick, solid wick vs center channel wick, #500 mesh vs #200mesh, what is your set-up method, what batteries/mods are you running these on, are dual wicks worth the extra effort?
    Please post pics for us all to admire I will do the same in the next few days.

    Waiting for the atty with a little pump in it that pumps the juice up through the wick. Then it won't matter how you do it or what you do it with! lol

    The only mesh I have been using lately is
    #200, but when it comes image.jpgto single,double,
    Or U wick it really depends on what device
    Your using
    All my hybrids are single wick with 28kanthal
    2-3 raps
    For the hellfire I use a U wick in the mini
    As it hits really hard that u need the wick
    Full of juice all times
    For the mega HF I switch between U,single
    Wick depending on the juice I'm using

    But for a double wick double coil it's a total
    Waste if u have only one air hole facing the wick

    Just my opinion

    Thanks for your feedback Ali,
    "But for a double wick double coil it's a total waste if u have only one air hole facing the wick"
    I agree, and have 2x 0.9mm airholes drilled in my AGA-T amongst other useful mods.
    Been trying the #200 in a few different setups recently, and still assessing, but promising so far

    Hahaha, maybe, I get my wick glowing with my coils to thoroughly oxidize it before a drop of juice goes near it, and I have not had any real problems with the #200 so far, but the reason I laugh is I still can't tell the "bad genesis days" from my eternal impatience.
    Some days I wonder if I've learnt anything but most days I got it down pat.
    So far I have the #200 at 140mm 28g 1 ohm in a DID similar in a AGA screw tank and the dual wick AGA-t I mentioned in the OP.
    Time will out all
    Will I ever be happy with all my setups? I hope not that would be very dull LOL.

    The Did gets 4 wraps of 32 kanthal its got to go on the vmax so ohms have to be above 1.6

    4 other cheap Gennies run 3 wraps 30 kanthal to get 1ohm on mech mod
    All 400 mesh thats all i have at the moment
    all wick hole on the cheapies have been drilled out to 3.5 -4 mm to get a large wick in 70mm long or so not much of a hole in the middle
    Still learning and stil lin search of knowlodge great thread
