when i had the line and used mesh as a wick i did notice sometimes bits floating around in the juice,i don't know if it was carbon or maybe small particles of rust,to be honest mesh is not worth the hassle in my eyes,also leaving juice in the line for a day or so it did change a dark colour again it could be the carbon but i would expect this to happen with a fresh wick but it still happened with an older wick,this does not seem to happen with FG wick,i would not rush out to buy another Genesis type atti again.
I'm working on some CAD designs for a way to mod Ody into a proper genesis atomizer.
It basically uses an upside down "U" shaped stainless mesh wick where each of the two ends extend into the tank through insulated holes.
Think similar to the Patriot UFS, in aesthetics.
Here's sort of what I'm thinking, right now. When designing an atomizer to fit inside the UFS, real estate is key. With this in mind, I want to combine the usual two posts, or post + nut that you see on Genesis atomizers into a single post. It will take up the same amount of space as the usual, taller post that you see in Genesis atomizers, like this:
The major question I have is how the liquid will be fed to the wick. Ideally, I'd like to insulate the 510 connection and feed the wick directly into it, so that the whole thing can take advantage of the UFS' juice control. I'm not entirely convinced, though, that that will be enough exposure to constantly keep the wick wet. I don't have my UFS yet, so I can't test it, but any of you UFS users out there think that the suction from inhale in combination with an open liquid control would suffice to keep it saturated?
Boy, with all the new style Genesis attys out there, I just had to try one so I got a good one. I did the whole carbonize the mesh thing, well mind you, with a blow torch, quenched 5 times in water then burned juice off it another 5 times. I had hot spots on the first 5 coils i built, none lasting longer than a few pulses. I finally got the thing to vape after an hour and 6 coils.
Pulsed the coil several times to burn in the coil, took a hit and it was like breathing sulfuric acid. I coughed for a good 5 minutes. I blame this not on the maker of the Atty its well made and beautiful, but I've gotten so spoiled with my Ody's and Penelopes that I just can't imagine anyone having to fiddle so much. Not only that, while I was having my coughing attack, I laid it down on the couch for 5 minutes and when I came back, all the juice had dripped out on the couch.
I can only imagine that the good folks out there that rave about these machines have never tried and Ody system with a proper wick. I can make a new wrapped coil/wick assembly in a few minutes, you can vape it right out of the gate, no burn in or break-in required, they taste great, they don't leak, never harsh and it lasts a week or more.
I think Imeo should concentrate on the Proteus, the VIR and forget about the genesis. Period. Forgive me if I've stepped on any sacred cows but my lungs are on fire and my wife is bitching a storm about the spot on the couch!
I offered my Honor, she honored my offer, and all night long I was honor and offer
If I ever get a genesis atty I will probably use Nextel to wick it...
