    Default RDA coiling advice

    What is the best way to build in an RDA? Currently I am using a single cotton microcoil in an IGO-W, currently I thread cotton through and then fill the whole deck up with cotton, is this what I should do, or less cotton?

    How much cotton should you use?

    Which is best, putting the cotton through the coil or wrapping it around the outside?

    How many wraps for the microcoil?

    Any other advice?

    Thanks.

    i personally just enough cotton to thread through the coil and tuck the sides under the coil. that way, i don't have any unused juice

    i usually do 5-6 wraps of 28 gauge or 7-8 wraps of 27 gauge for single coils. not sure what diameter my coils are, but i use one of those big paperclips to wrap my coils

    Hmm I was thinking it would be better to fill the whole deck with cotton but I am not sure, I will try your method.

    filling the whole deck will let you hold more juice, but it will waste some juice since some of the juice in the cotton won't reach the coils.

    I think you might be right... I was thinking it would get pulled around to the coil with the airflow etc. but it seems that the juice in the loose cotton does not get pulled to the coil very well.

    I prefer single coils. Here is my daily/typical build.

    Nemesis Mod & Nimbus RDA with a single 7/64 airflow hole
    28g kanthal
    single micro coil @ 0.9-1.1 ohm (I shoot for 1 ohm)
    CVS cotton wick

    Best vape I have found so far...
