    Default Calling all IGO-L users. LR Coil build for clouds

    I need some input on different setups for a RDA. Specifically the igo-l. I finally bit the bullet and bought a mechanical mod as to be able to build low resistance coils using either 30g or 28g.

    For those of you who have an igo-l or any dripping atomizer, please give me some input on your different setups.

    From my understanding, 28-30g kanthal wire doesn't hit like a 32g wire @1.0 -1.3 ohms. Is this correct?

    so what are the advantages disadvantages of using thicker wire besides resistance?

    Thanks in advance...

    The main difference is that the thicker the wire the more real estate on the wick you take up which is what you want because it is very efficent . I just picked up some 30awg which I could only wrap 3/4 times to get a 1.3 ohm coil ,but am going to be picking up some 28awg because I can get about 5/6 wraps and maintain a 1.0-1.1 ohm coil which is right where I want to be. It's all about personal preference though some people like sub ohm wraps with 28awg at 3 wraps. I can't handle the heat so I stay out of that kitchen lol.

    Thanks for the reply. I think in going to try out some 28g kanthal. I just ordered the kamry k-100 because id like a mechanical mod as well. I just had to do some more tinkering. I couldn't get a dual coil setup to work properly on my LT 2.0 because of amp limits..

    I'm waiting on my Kamry KTS from a co-op right now can't wait to get it. I love my igo-l on my Roller. The ease of wrapping this thing is crazy easy compaired to my other RDA's well except my puff daddy, but that's a high end drip atty so you can't really compare lol

    Nice. I was thinking of slapping another agat2 on the rscope but realized what fun would it be to have two of the same atomizers on different mods. So my new setup is going to be an igo l on the rscope. Any idea of when your rscope is coming in?

    i like using the 30awg with a 3/4 wrap, it gives me about .9 to 1 ohms on 4 loops of 2.5mm silica i like the wicks fat enough to make a nice sponge for the juice. a mechanical is the way to go. say good bye to amp limitations. i don't like to go below .9 because of how fast you will go thru juice. at .9 to 1 ohm i drip about 12-15 drops and feel like im vaping out of a tank but with dripper vapor and flavor.

    Do you fold your silica ? like make a bow or something. I have some 3mm silica laying around inside my vapebox...

    For what it's worth... I'm fairly new to building attys. I've now built 4 in total on my igo-s dripper. The first was a total loss. The 2nd was 28awg Kanthal, 3rd was a 30awg Kanthal and the 4th is 32awg Kanthal, all on 3mm silica. So far, my absolute favorite has been the 32awg Kanthal on 3mm silica (I haven't tried the SS mesh yet). The 3 working coils have been 1.2, 1.6 and 2.1 ohms of resistance with 7 wraps of the 28 and 6 wraps on each of the 30 and 32. I've tested each setup at an output of 10 watts (3.5v, 4.0v and 4.6v). My overall impression is that I really like the 32awg coils because they heat up much faster and the vapor production/flavor has been incredible. My next experiment will be with 4 wraps of 32awg on a 3.7 mech device.

    And say good bye to regulated vaping. Nothing like having the voltage drop with every drag.

    And of course the pre-vape check.
