my 1st variable voltage
« on: September 06, 2013, 04:05:53 PM »

just treated myself to an ego v v2 mega  ;D .   just need to decide what to stick on the end of it now .  ive got a kanga t3 which i hated on my normal ego , hoping it will work better with a higher voltage . i did really want a kanger pro tank , but the t3 has put me off of bottom coil . il see how the t3 works on the new battery .

I read on a review that the Kanger protanks are supposed to be really nice with the Evod replacement coil heads....

i must admit i do think the protank would look nice on it , especially as the battery is the silver 1 .

I've ordered one...not the version ll but the first one and I think the Evod coil heads help make the draw less airy....Don't quote me on that though lol ....I only got it because it was cheaper  :P

Those heads are easy to re-coil - even I can do it  ;D

i think sooner or leater im going to have to stop avoiding attempting to rebuild .  trouvle is ive got big hands and it looks so fiddly . but maybe im going to just have to learn , as i really like the look of the protank  , but dont want to waste money if im nopt goin g to get along with it .

maybe scott can get 1 free for the purposes of a review and then when hes reviewed it , send it over to me for  a " 2nd opinion"  ;D

Those heads do look a bit fiddly. I would say vivi nova heads would be a good place to start or a little dripper. ;)

Rebuilding is not so bad. I'm not sure on the battery you are using but if you don't have a meter something like a vamo would make a good next upgrade. 10m of kanthal for a couple of quid turns it into a cheaper hobby. ;)

The Evod heads are no harder to recoil than the Vivi Nova heads imho. Around 5 mins ish.

Since I had a pack of iffy Nova heads, I only use heads that I have rebuilt now and the flavour is a big improvement.

+1 to the Spyder regarding a Vamo or similar to check the resistance on re-built coils. Personally I prefer the kanthal ribbon.

Good luck!

Ribbon is going on my next wire order.

Stew. I've not tried to rebuild an Evod head yet but my research has seen good results with micro coils and cotton wool wicks. I think removing the top tube adds a bit of "fiddlyness" to the job over a vivi for me. I'll get around to it soon though as I have a protank I've not used yet.

I went from an Ego Twist - Lavatube - Vamo. Once I knew I was delving into building I knew I needed a Vamo for coil testing and my LT was a bit beatup.

This is a slippery slope though as I'll soon own 5 drippers and 3 geni's. Now looking at mech mods and other stuff. Buying more gear than I really need.

I've had much better / consistent results with the ribbon. The coils look neater to me as well  ;D

Getting my next order from here -

I fancy trying a bit of cotton. Where do you get it from?

I found that dry burning the coil (heating it up, blowing on it to cool it etc, 5 - 8 times until you can't smell burning wick any more) before adding the flavour wicks makes a big difference to the flavour, and eliminated the silica flavour that I was getting with some liquids.

Micro coils - maybe in the near future. I've only recently got the hang of bog standard coils  :D

i find ribbon is better than wire, easy to use, better vape and flavour.
