CARE AND FEEDING OF YOUR T.M.C.
(Tensioned Contact Micro/Macro/Mini Coil)
Recycling Ceramic Weave T.M.C.'s
Kanger and other clearomizers threaded with Nextel XC-132 ceramic wicks will offer an outstanding durability compared to silica and other synthetics. However, like any other permeable thing in the physical universe, the wick will get dirty. Pigments and flavorings clump up in juice and more so with the application of heat.

Is the pro tank 3 coil any good? It's dual coil isn't it?
Carto's are great. Apart from their reliability and sheer no-fuss (relatively) practicality there's

Well I appreciate that observation on the flaring because it's been a seriously annoying problem with both the original and aftermarket replacements I've found. But since I realized the significant likelihood of 510 shorts with incidental ground and moisture

Not much, maybe one wrap's worth, but it also decreased the overall tightness of my coil. I think I honestly get tighter coils from cutting the wire, annealing it, and hand-wrapping it. My coils touch all
