    I used this and it came up with 4 loops to be 1.8 ohms.

    My first attempt was a Disaster.

    I was so Giddy about actually replacing a Coil/Wick for the First time in my 2 Years of Vaping that I forgot to Burn Off the Wire. Bad Call.

    A Very Bad Call. It Tasted Horrible.

    On my second attempt, after I wrapped the Wire onto the Wick, I held the New Coil/Wick with Hemostats and plunged it into the Stove Flame for 3 Seconds. That one ohmed at 2.0 ohms in the Stardust and the Taste was Much Better.

    The Hit was also what I was looking for on at 3.7 volts. And the Hit at 4.0 volts was Great.

    FWIW you can get better and cheaper Nichrome80 here.

    PnJ Resources, LLC : Nichrome 80

    Do your flaming of the wire first, before you even start coiling. Seems to make the wire easier to handle also. You can also flame later again if you like.

    These CE2 type atties are a different breed, staying above 2Ω results in better, lesss finicky results for me.

    Try searching...

    I just tried to get the case off using the method in this video (pulling in a rocking type motion with battery screwed on). Instead of the case coming off my battery pulled apart.

    Is there another way to take the case off without having to use my battery? Thanks

    edit: oops I guess this should have been in the "advanced cleaning" thread.

    Thanks WB...

    Heating the Wire Red before wrapping and then letting it Air Cool would Anneal the Wire. Making it more Ductile.

    Thanks for the Nice Link. I might try some Different Diameters when I get some Extra time.

    Well, at least you know how to take your Battery Apart Now.



    Maybe putting the Stardust in Hot Water Before you attempt to pull the Tube might Help.

    I like doing my coils like this guys does, it's a better way to wrap your wire for sure = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw3Sb...5DHqDD9QmjjYM=

    hi jorge, i used an ss mesh on my stardust too and it works good. Only issue i have is something i get this gurgling sound and it leaks a bit until the juice starts to thicken up a bit. Have you ever have this issue as well? I think its because the mesh soaks up too much juice i think

    a light wiggle on the batt to get it loose then switch to either gripping the metal with your fingers or some pliers covered in electrical tape or something analagous. does the trick for me.

    I also have two 'dead' batts that I use for this, so I'm a bit wreckless at times
