    New Dripper Problems - Getting Dry Hits when RDA is Flooding?

    Hey Guys,

    Been around for a while, but I found my favourite vape and stuck with it. Recently I broke it lol when building a new coil...oh how I lament that they don't make the IGO L anymore...just the best little dripper ever made. it was with me for 6 years.

    I have Mephisto I'm trying to get working as smoothly as the IGOL was going.

    With my IGOL I used 28g 5 wrap microcoil (1.4mm screwdriver to wrap) to make a coil in the 0.75 ohm range. I'm using a zero mini styled mod from fasttech and run it at 13 watts which is good enough for me.

    I tried to do the same with the Mephisto but found i kept getting dry hits, unless i flooded the deck with juice...which then leaked like a *****...was awful. Soooo....I got the 26g out and did 4 wraps on a 3mm screwdriver...only to have the same problems...

    I'm using an 80 pg/20 vg juice at 17mg.

    I'm attaching some photos of my current build. It had started dry hitting a little so I'm about to juice it up before vaping but I'd love your thoughts on how I can get back to an all day regular vape with the new atomiser.






    P.S. I'm not sure if this makes sense...but i just decided to try it at 20w. Small dry hit immediately. So i added more juice. Which leaked a little. But it fucking vapes like a champ now. So it's a better vape at 20w with a 26g...but it's still leaking. Any ideas?



    I don't need squat for ages, i just went shopping.

    This won’t help with your build but vaporbreak still has them. I dealt with them pre Fasttech (a while ago) and they were ok. Products were same quality as fasttech. No free shipping and at the time seems to be on par with say normal registered china mail. Looks like there are more options.

    These Drippers look right on a Provari V2.x, with the slant top.

    Crisscross's link is cheaper, & seems to be the three post dual coil option.
    But it only has one air hole in the cap, (drill time).
    It is pictured with a driptip, but I don't think it comes with one.

    1ynne's link is from VapeKing, (a local retailer).
    It seems to have two posts, theirfore it seems to be the single coil version.

    Samtron if you are close, & decide to get a dozen of the cheaper one's, I will take one.

    I bought 10 guys. That price is american dollars and so is the postage. I can sell them for 5 bucks.
