    LOL

    On a side note - you can get a bit more runtime even with "bunt" coils if you lower the wattage a bit after they taste burnt. They won't taste burnt and will produce flavour again.

    Can't speak for the impact on your lungs but you can make them last just a bit longer if need be especially if you're running low on coils.

    Oh there's a lot of tricks, like soaking in Vodka to try to get rid of the taste. That requires there to be some wick left though.

    Rebuilding is always an option as long as (a) you enjoy working on tiny fiddly little parts and (b) the coil in question lends itself to rebuilding. This is why many of us progress to rebuildable devices sooner or later. Rebuilding satisfies the inner scrooge

    So i've tried what you said. I primed the atty, filled it and let it soak for 10 mins. Started off on 6W (barely got a cloud as expected) and slowly went up .5 every 4-5 drags. got to about 10 watts and took 3 chain drags and it burnt INSTATNTLY, like throw it away kinda burnt within 30 mins of using it. So i swapped that one out and put a new one (third one in an afternoon :/) and i've gotten it up to 8W now. Too scared to go higher and i wasn't even getting half the flavor i'm used to at 10 watts on the the second one before i burnt it. Oh, and i also managed to screw up the glass threading on my mini and it's stuck on tight, can;t even get the top off with pliers lol

    Never mind about that naut mini, the glass just shattered in my hand whilst trying to unscrew it.

    That's really sounding like a faulty batch of coils. I think there was a batch of nautilus mini coils (and others) where they changed the cotton and it just didn't wick fast enough to keep up with anything. The only thing I can suggest at this point is a new batch of authentic coils from a different supplier.

    Ah, that's bad luck. Don't chuck it out, you should be able to get replacement glasses for only few bucks. I normally have spare glass in my spares box - when you drop them enough times eventually your luck runs out.

    To get stuck parts unscrewed, the best tip I have is to wrap rubber bands around the parts. This gives you enough grip to unscrew them without squeezing so hard, so you have much better control. Another tool that is useful is the ceramic tweezers that have grip sections for undoing tank parts like these: https://www.fasttech.com/products/4698000

    ETA: the ceramic tweezers are coil building tools for setting up coils while you glow them. You won't need that just yet but they are cheap enough. Another solution is soft grip pliers you can get from hardware stores. They have PVC coatings or blocks on the jaws so they don't mark metal parts, but I wouldn't use them on glass sections because they have a fair amount of leverage:

    Hi Mazrim. Where do you live? Maybe there's a B&M vape shop near where you live that could help you out with new coils or check your set up etc..

    What coils are you using mazrim? Try authentic coils and you should be ok. For the nautilus mini you can get a metallic sleeve with a window in it or glass with metallic on top which does not break that easy.
