guess it would also help if i spelled CHALICE correctly!
Sorry, but since I got a Genesis mod I've never looked back into vaping with Silica/ Fiber glass wicks on a rebuildable. Oxidized SS Mesh is currently the best wicking material there will be for rebuildables!
lol - apparently people are moving away from the ss mesh getting better results from cotton!
Update on the 4th day of using this monster:
I don't know if you can see the coils very well, but gauze part of the setup is somewhat cleaner than the mesh part. Which is expected since lower current is going through gauze coil. Actually, only 2 top wraps of gauze coil have some gunk on them, which is where the heat is concentrated due to the position and proximity of mesh coil.
I honestly never liked dual coils all that much, but with gauze they have that amazing advantage as they are splitting the dissipated heat on more surface (in other words, less burning).
Seems like this setup will last for quite some time (which is great, because it would be a pain to have to replace it often).
Biggest issue is that its killing the battery very fast. I have Provari Mini, using it with this at 4,7V, and 18350 battery doesn't fare all that well with it; it doesn't last enough to suck down that tank really. So I'm using it mostly with 18490.
Juice consumption is NOT that high as you'd think. It fills up my mouth, my throat and my lungs so well, that I actually had to remove the glue from my hands and put my PV down every few puffs. Which is amazing for me.
Anyway, here are some before/after pictures, side by side:
EDIT: whoups, that wasn't directed at me lol
Hey guys, Endweaver is right, please disregard the previous 874 posts...I'm so tired of the "fan boys" dropping in to slam cotton because it lacks the sophistication and practised skill required to set up mesh...I mean, that can only be the reason because the "cotton isn't safe" argument is pretty mute...
No one is trying to convince you (or anyone) to stop using mesh...this thread is for peeps with an open mind looking for alternatives and trying to help open up the genesis RBA world to those who may not have the skills/patients/desire to build on mesh but still want great taste and vape without the risks of silica/fiberglass/ceramic.
That kind of closed statement isn't helpful.
"Chicks dig me because I rarely wear underwear, and when I do, it's always something unusual."
do you think a 18 ga needle will go through those holes? i'm using 100% vg ..........
