    I rebuilt my first coil on a dripper pro ceramic cup!!!

    I was down to my last pre-coiled ceramic cup, I have 12 of the ceramics which I was saving to rebuild.
    So I had a go at it earlier today and failed miserably, I could not join the R/NR wire together properly, then when I finally got one the resistance portion ended up too short, next go was ok but then the loop on the wick was too short to tuck under the pole.
    To make matters worse, I pulled apart my last pre-coiled ceramic which I was using as a reference, so now I had nothing to use in my dripper pro.
    That was earlier this afternoon, and since then I've been vaping on a 510 bridgless atomizer which I was using for months before getting the dripper pro, well the dripper pro has spoiled me because I forgot how to use it - flooding, dry burns, too much liquid, too little liquid.
    So while thinking about what to do, and having had enough of the 510 atty, I had another go.
    This time, armed with the the wire and wick from the pre-built ceramic, I was able to measure the exact lengths of resistance, no-resistance, and wick needed to build one of these beasts, success at last @2.1 ohms.
    Next on my shopping list will be a wire welder, I've contacted stig on ukv about getting a mini zapper which will make joining the wires a lot easier.

    I have had some success rebuilding these but never used nr wire and have not had a problem at all. I didn't even think the premade had nr wire in them

    It does take a bit if fiddling to build them but practice makes perfect

    The premade in mine definitely had nr wire.

    If you don't use it, at the least you're wasting a lot of amps to not heat juice.. and any time you have hot wire without juice I think the taste is gonna be off somewhat too.

    Yeah it's there but it's welded together and looks very neat, which is why the wire welder is now on my shopping list.

    Rebuilding 5 ceramics now while vaping away on the one I already made, good times

    If you dont have a zapper & you are using soft silver wire for the NR section, you can use a jet lighter to "solder" the NR wire to the R wire

    Toothpick measuring tool, the tip is where I start twisting the wire.

    Once I've got a couple of twists I'll clamp it down so I can get a tight twist so it doesn't fall apart.

    5 wires done.

    Coiled.
