    I am running 26 gauge dual microcoils measuring out to 0.3ohms on an Origen dripper and have it set up as show in the picture below. I haven't compared the resistance of the mod with & without the kick yet, but will do so as soon as I get a chance to.

    I've cleaned the threads with a dremel using a nylon brush attachment. Is that abrasive enough to get rid of any potential burrs?

    Nylon, No. Nylon is good for flipping dirt out of crevices.
    Need a Brass Wheel to protect but remove all but the most stubborn.

    Still a bit Baffled............ Unless this is from Heat being driven out through the body(think Heat Sink) and the thinner ring will heat faster than the surrounding thicker metals. It can also cool faster.

    *Note - Without Kick module, Ring is normally not used.

    My kick is also getting hot.......mostly when chain vaping. I'm guessing that it's not a problem while chain vaping? I've check for burs, everything is real smooth. Kick fits in knock of Nemesis kick ring perfectly, there is no play, side spring has good connection and all else appears to be connecting correctly. There is no room for it to wiggle or move when I push on the battery.

    Air holes on bottom of Nemesis are not covered. The two air holes on top piece I have at one opening. There are no air holes in the kick tube. Should there be?

    I rebuild my own Vivi Nova Tanks, it read 2.1 ohms

    Battery being used is 18650 3.7 protected TrustFire 3000mah red and black, no scratches. Kick is sat at 5 (I think it's 5, I'd have to find the darn magnifying glass again to make sure though )

    Oh yea; sorry gang, financially challenged here, so the kick is an $8 knock off too. Other than the kick tube getting hot, I love it. I just want to make sure there isn't something else for me to be doing. I sure don't want anything exploding or taking down a plane, bus, train, neighbor, or myself.

    It might be that you're running too hot on the Origen. I have the Storm, which is similar, and the positive post generates a lot of heat. I think the insulation might be thin. It makes the top of my mod pretty warm, but not hot. I started running it .8 and up and this helped. I don't like going super low with that style RDA anyway. The small chamber creates enough heat on its own. That's what it's designed like that.
