Since there's a huge Ithaka thread with all the information that you just can't find ^^, I figured I'd ask in a seperate post.
Whats your favorite build?
I got mine yesterday, rebuilt it twice, but so far I wasn't able to achieve the performance of a ProTank, so I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong.
First built was a simple X-shaped dual coil at around .9ohms, using 2mm Ecowool and 0.2mm Kanthal D/0.2mm nickel (guess that's 32g - weird system). Had only around 3 pretty far spread wraps, tasted like nothingnothingnothingBURNT. That was my first build ever.
Rebuilt it with the same stuff, only now I used more res wire and ended up with 1.4amps. I ended up with 5-6 coils each. I also put an uncoiled string of ecowool in between the two coils - I ended up cutting most of the excess wool while screwing the thing together.
It's a bit better now, but I ended up with less vapor and a bit of a weird taste, but that might be the coils needing some more burning in...
I also have some 3mm Ecowool, and I'd try that next. Possibly not in an X-shape, but I dont think that's my main problem here..
Any ideas? Pictures/Vids would be awesome, I think I just suck at building coils.
Also, what's the deal with micro coils? Would that work on an Ithaka? Why use cotton instead of seperated silica wicks?
