Ok so ive managed to stop the top coil glowing, but now the bottom 2 are glowing....

taste has got a bit better i must admit, but its a case of tipping the atty right on its side, almost upside down to get some vapour/flavour, else it just tastes burnt lol wicking problems? Im using #300 mesh in this one and 100% PG juice, could that be something to do with it? Like i said previously, i have some #400 coming tomorrow, but really want this Cobra to work out for me as i do love it! lol
any isolated hot spot is due to a short ... nudge it at the point where the glow ends and the short should shift or go completely.

Ok super, ive managed to get them all going evenly, but now, its just a wicking issue LOL every now and then im getting super horrible dry hit, should the wick draw fluid up itself? or is it a 'tip and vape' procedure? lol

here's how a properly done coil looks when the wick is removed ... showing how the electricity flow and glow is even throughout.

Yep mine looks something like that! :)

I think the coil is bang on now, its just a case of wicking, but i dont think that using #300 mesh was a good thing to do as i use only PG juice lol :)

So, now im happy i can build a good coil, i think ill re-wick it with #400 and be happy with it! LOL ill get it right soon im sure!

yep ... the #400 should be better ... i cut mine at 4cm x 2-2.5cm ... that gives me the perfect tube when finished and without any wicking issues whatsoever. (still require a tilt to start it off though).

Great stuff, the wick i made today out of the 300 was great, just didnt wick very well, nice and tight, small enough to fit snuggly into the hole as well and i done the 'paper' method for wrapping the coil which worked PERFECTLY, so i think im ready for the real deal now! lol it still works great i have to say, just doesnt wick that well and i want to pick my vape up, and vape, not having to look, tip, look, vape, burn a bit, tip it etc etc i just want it to work :)
