    Sounds like 1.8 ish would fit the bill.

    I'm planning on trying out a microcoil and cotton wick, I've never messed with microcoils before so could do with a little advice.
    I know there are a ton of good tutorial videos, showing how to build microcoils, but most of 'em seem to centre round building coils of relatively low resistance.


    I mainly vape my favourite juices at around 5.5 Watts so, on a mech, I'm thinking a coil around 2.8 Ohm would be about right.


    Can some kind soul give me some idea a microcoil spec. for around 2.8 Ohm?
    Kanthal gauge, mandrel diameter, number of wraps and all that stuff?


    Ta in advance.

    *I copied this over from New Members forum as I got no replies - hope this is OK.*
    I made slight modification to my Reo that solved this problem for me. I scrapped the powder coat off at the top right side of the battery and put a kick 2 in it. Of course, you would have to use a 18490 battery, but that works fine for me.

    Just got my Reo and RM2. Using 32 gauge wire I built a 1.8 ohm coil for the RM2 and it hits smoother and lighter than my 2.5ohm attys on the eVic at 7 watts. I'm going to try to build 1 ohm coil tonight and give that a try. Two days ago I would thought you were crazy to go that low, that it would only burn your throat.

    how are you holding the kick2 in place?

    I have the two negative pins touching the bare aluminum on the right and the top post slipped in the groove where the firing pin is located. I have been using this combo for about two weeks and I really like it.

    Yeah I did not want to try the pink eraser trick. In my case I think the trick is to make sure both negative post touch the side so the kick does not rotate and once the top post is the the groove where the firing pin is mine have not moved until I take them out.

    For 30 ga Kanthal A1, I'd say start at 13 wraps around a 1/16" (1.5 - 1.6 mm) mandrel. See how that works out. Too cool = loose a wrap or two. Too hot = add a wrap or two.

    Thanks, pal, I'll give it a go using your spec. and see how things go from there.

    The thing I'm trying to get my head around is just how differently microcoils perform compared to normal coils. I suppose only experience will provide the proper answer to that one.

    Just need USPS and Royal Mail to get their arses in gear now.

    Great advice so far! How did you choose your name, NoMoreBoge? You done with cartos or did you have a Boge Revolution V2?

    Ah, well, you may be sorry you asked that one.

    I was thinking of going for user name OffBoge but then realised some may find it offensive.

    I guess that gives you a clue, eh?

    Boge quality control blows goat. I can live with a few duds in a batch, maybe 5% or thereabouts, but the last two bricks I purchased (reputable vendor) were absolutely bloody awful.

    The DOAs (bad thread, dodgy resistance, blocked side vents etc.) are bad enough but the sneaky buggers, the ones that check out OK but die right quick, are massively annoying.

    So there you have it; NoMoreBoge, BogeBeBuggered or whatever.

    Rant over. Well, for now.
