    Default No resistance wire ???

    DIY Rebuildable Atomizer Parts : Stormys Vapor Cellar, Electronic Cigarettes & More
    I found that website and I would like to order my supplies for my smoktech vivi mesh conversion project.
    I am planning on using 325 mesh, with 32g-36g kanthol wire. I would like to use 32g as I like 1.8ohm heads.

    My problem: I dunno if I must use the no resistance wire. It looks like the stock setup on the smoktechvivi came with no res wire with some kind of small, copper piece linking them together.
    How does this work? Do I have to order these tiny litle copper connectors to connect to kanthol wire to the no res wire.
    If so, where can i order them, and why doesnt anyone talk about them in utube vids?

    Just wannna make sure I order the right things for this conversion. I use 100%vg .. I read the 325 mesh is better then 400mesh for thick juice.

    Holy crap! 24" of kanthal for 2.99, that is 149.50 for 100', and 2.99 24" of silver wire??

    Better deals....

    A-1 32awg for 9.95 for 100' here:
    Kanthal A-1 Wire, 32 Gauge .0080 Cig Cigarette

    30g for .50 cents a foot here:
    .999 Fine Silver 30 Gauge Round Dead Soft Wire

    I personally order mesh from themeshcompany.com out of the UK, I suppose if you dont need a full sheet you could get it at Stormys, the price is comparable to ordering from the UK. But I always get extra sheets from themesh company free when I order.

    Not bashing, just saying their kanthal is way overpriced.

    I have found when the tank is underneath the best is 400 mesh, the juice has to rise by capillary action and the smaller the air spaces between in the mesh the better it wicks, I only use 100% VG and have no problem with 400 mesh and hardly no wicking with 325 when the fluid has to rise, Most of the successful use of 325 over 400 is in attys with the tank above and fed by gravity and on these the larger spaces let it flow more juice down.

    After testing many wick sizes in my line type attys, IMO the more mesh you can roll as tight as you can of SS 400 mesh the better.
    I started out with loose 25mm of mesh for a 2.5mm dia wick, then went to 35mm, then 45mm and now use 60mm very tight roll with a very small center hole for a 2.5mm dia. Seems that wicks are like the golf swing, every thing is opposite to what you would think.

    Dan did it with a small silver wire extension, I slanted the drilled hole a little and the wick slanted toward the pos post.

    I've used the .999 fine silver wire and it's good but, a little flimsy. I like this nickel wire a little better for NR.

    Same guy on eBay that has the 200 ft rolls of 32awg A1 has this: Pure Nickel wire (non resistance wire ) 32 awg 100 ft | eBay

    Thoughts? Would be nice to get it from the same person, save on shipping....
