    Kayfun lite or Kayfun 3.1 ????

    Hi all,

    This will be my first attempt in rebuilding for me and was a bit confused with the difference between the kayfun lite and the 3.1 version. I will eventually buy an original but wanted to see how I went with my first attempts.

    I have a provari so I won't be going any lower than 0.7 ohms. Not sure what wire, wick (cotton or silica) I should get.

    Sorry for the noob questions but I inow this is the place to come for advice.

    I am not into mech. Mods or drippers...

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    The genuine 3.1 has been discontinued so that should help.

    If you're looking at clones don't get a 3.1 as the fill hole dies really quick on them.

    So lite all the way. Or get a Russian 2.0, which is sort of a 3.1 clone but the fill hole won't break.

    Go the lite, you'll appreciate the shorter length.

    Personally much prefer the 3.1 clones myself (don't seem to leak as much as the lite for me, anyway) ... never had a prob with the clones fill holes, as I always top fill my KF's ...

    KF's seem to work best around 1.2 - 1.6ohms ... have never gone sub-ohm with them

    Definitely go for cotton or rayon wicking imo

    You can't go sub-ohm with a Provari anyways can you?

    Silica is a pain to wick with - definately cotton like BuzzCoffs said. It'll take some getting used to in terms of how much cotton to use etc.

    exactly, using the correct amount of cotton is a bit of hit and miss at first - but once you get it down, nooo probs.

    Here is a very handy vid I watched (a few times) when doing my first KF build ages ago ...

    Cotton, in my opinion, is the best wicking material.

    In order I think:

    1. Koh Gen Do (Japanese Cotton)
    2. Tark wick (hemp/cotton hybrid
    3. Sterile cotton
    4. Cotton balls (pref. organic)
    5. Mesh (I list it here as it's impossible to work with, though gives a good vape)
    6. Silica

    I haven't tested Rayon yet although I do have a metric f-ton of it.

    The Koh Gen Do is the stuff to go for as it is completely organic and it comes in sheets, which makes it so bloody easy to get the right amount of cotton first time every time. I have a huge bag of sterile cotton that I'll never use now - it was always impossible to get the right amount. Plus, all the strands run in one single direction which help with wicking capabilities.

    You could also consider an Eleaf Lemo, great genuine atty for $50, airflow is huge and produces better flavour than my Russian 91% that cost twice as much money.
