    How in the heck do you weld wire that tiny (isn't it a miracle enough to thread cotton inside)??? Is that really necessary? What's with resistance and non-resistance wire anyway? I just have 28 guage... whatever.

    Here's some big pics of the new bdc coil design different design

    I thought starting out with protank coils would be kinda of a no brainer if needed and so far they've been so cheap I haven't needed to do any. I've been following along just fine ..... until this. I seriously hope they are pulling my leg. Be kind. I also suffer from overthinkers disease. (That's why I should never be allowed to touch a keyboard of a pc.)
    Aik,

    You can buy pre-welded NR-R-NR wires from FT. They're pretty cheap (about $2.40 for 100) and the nice thing about them is the coil resistance always comes out exactly on target!

    Although you can wire-weld manually, (You just charge up a capacitor, connect the R and NR wires to the terminals, and touch them together details here
    Resistance-No Resistance wire welder

    but another option is just to wrap them with plain kanthal wire. While the NR legs do keep all the heat up in the coil, I don't think they're really a hard requirement, just a minor enhancement.


    Welcome FireDragon, I think you've come to the right place!


    Haven't been around as much, lots of spring projects sucking up my spare time...

    Hmm. Trying a kiwi custard I made. I like it I think. With no nic it has 0 throat hit. Added nic once I decided I like it and ut has slight throat hit now.

    i like no throat hit, but i tend to use way more liquid that way. and if the liquid has nicotine i use a bit too much because i cant judge how much i use because there is no throat hit and i forget how many draws i have taken.

    im awaiting on a new package of juices from a vendor. thier Horchata attempts (5 different attempts.. i like horchata.. ill like sampling this!) and some Sweet Tea. interested to see how that tastes.

    Maybe Vaper's Tongue or you need clean/new coil? Here is a thread I bookmarked. You may find an answer or some things to try out.

    http://www.e-cigarette-forum.com/for...y-fatigue.html

    If this peaks your interest there are several/many more threads about Vaper's Tongue. Hope whatever it is goes away soon.

    I have days when nothing tastes good either, even after changing cotton wicks or attys or whatever. Sometimes I am not drinking enough water, sometimes it is something I ate. Sometimes I never know.

    I think I went the longest without a cigarette in some time, about 4 hours. I might need to up my nicotine from 12mg: I was almost chain-vaping. I was just using my flea-market EGo, nothing special- it tends to vape warm.

    Today I got a 14500 mod in the mail, an EGo-RS. It has 4 3-click voltages settings and a removable 14500 battery. I think it's good (with some faults- the button is almost flush), glad I didn't pay too much for it, but I think I do like it better than the cheap EGo batteries I have tried. I'm considering buying an L-Rider Lambo/Robust, also a 14500 VV 14500 mod. I like lower wattages (higher resistance atomizers here, 2.6-3.0) and longer draws so I can fine-tune the amount of nicotine I get. 5 to 5 1/2 watts seems plenty for me, especially vaping juices like WTA or NET that have a lot of throat hit already.

    My actual point is that everyone has their triggers that are like needs for smoking. It helps me to recognize what mine are and help prepare for them, figure out contingency plans - alternatives. At one time I used running. Then walking (not as fun). I've hit thrift stores for awhile. Something. I think I hang out here sometimes and it's kinda weird to talk about eliquids and vaping while smoking a cigarette. Yes it can be done, I've done it but I find myself prefferring to vape more. I think that's why I hang out in DIY looking at flavors and reciepes (not as expensive as mods). Others have said that's why they tinker with coil building and clouds.

    Whatever works.
    Except maybe killing someone.
    Or maxing the cc's out.
    Safety blanket, love it

    We vape alike. I hate a hot vape or throat hit.

    FQ I didn't quote you, although I thought I did but I am so proud of you!!!
