I took me 3 tries. Try 1 cotton wick, 30 kanthal, and it was shorted. Try 2 cotton wick, 30 kanthal, and I tried to dry fire a cotton wick = poof no more wick. Try 3 30 kanthal around 3mm silica from atomizerwick.com It worked! But 5 wraps only came in at 1.2ohms on my MVP, and I can only go down to 3.3 volts. I put some juice on it and wet fired? it a couple times. Then put it together and started vaping. It just doesn't taste good. It pumps out the smoke. I'm not sure what I did wrong. Any ideas? My first try I did the micro coil thing with about 10 wraps, heated it up over my gas stove. But it was the shorted one. Should I try microcoil and cotton again?
