    Be careful on fakes now...make sure you buy it from legit vendor...when "deal sites" advertise Fasttech Aspire Nautilus (Box even says Aspire) as legit and forget to omit things like
    "only one air hole,not 4 : i think it's a real one but badly made" from their discussion sites.

    Replacement heads just dropped on Fasttech for $7 for a 5 pack. Cheap enough?

How long do the wicks normally last on the kayfun/r-91. I tend to vape a lot so maybe I need to change it more, but this time I think I have too much cotton in it.
    You'll have to experiment with the thickness. I tend to change the cotton out every other tank full, as long as I'm vaping the same flavor, obviously. That's why I had to get two Kayfuns. I like to have more than one flavor available on em. They're a bit of a PITA at times. I tend to take it apart and clean it very often. I like clean gear.

    Getting the wicking right is the key to the Kayfun/Russian. You can build all kinds of coils but if the wicking isn't right then it's not going to work well.

    That's one of the reasons why I switched to Chimney Coils for my Kayfun builds. Chimney coils are far, far easier to wick. Basically once you get the coil built you just wrap the outside of the whole thing in cotton.

    I use about 6 inches of Kanthal to make a coil. I buy 100 feet of Kanthal for about $10. That works out to 5 cents per coil.


    I like my Aerotank. I'm sure the Nautilus is just as good and possibly a little better. But even the cheaper Aerotank looses out to a Kayfun in the long run when it comes to expense. You can get a high quality Kayfun clone for about the same price as the Nautilus and I got about 5 years worth of coils for $10 more.

    Would you please post a pic of that set up when you have a chance. I'd like to try it, but don't know what you're talking about.

    Those are fake, Fasttech always states if they are authentic like with Kanger/Innokin replacements....it's even talk about in their discussion...then suddenly forum is going to be filled with, "my Aspire Nautilus has burnt taste...", "what gives..Nautilus sucks"
    The coils are usually wrapped pretty bad or hot spots with overlapping wraps on fake Kanger ones.

    I will have to say the build on a kayfun makes all the difference when I got mine I tried many different builds they all had there down falls until
    I found this one
    Kayfun Lite Organic Cotton and Micro Coil Build - YouTube
    I run mine on a Provari at 1.3 ohms and with this guys style build It has worked flawless for me for a long time now
    I replace my wicks every 2 tanks so about 9 ml's I just can't say enough good things about this guys build

    I bought the Nautilus just for giggles, it does give a fine vape, but 11 watts is about all she can take. For low watt users and non builders, she's a fine bdc atty. My Russian, well I vape her at 30 watts and yeah, the Nautilus runs in fear when challenged by the Soviet Threat from Germany. lmao

    If you are having wicking issue with your russina/kayfun rba, one has either clogged the juice channels with fibers from the wick, or has not quite gotten their fiber density through the coil, or around it, depending whether its vertical or horizontal mounted. Or a combination of the two.

    Plain and simple, to but the Russian down, need something like the Rose2, Magma, or Aqua to have any chance for a TVO.(Technical Vape Out)

    Damn, frak me, just made up a new acronym, that'll confuse new members, TVO, what was I thinking. roflmfao!!


    Vape long and Prosper!!!!

    P.S.: the cat bites! ouch!!!!

    Love the nautilus, gives me flavour and vapor that I'm after and the tank is huge..

    As said above beware of fakes... On Aspire website they give you a way to check if yours is legit and what to look out for on the fakes...
