    Okay i have a tree of life mech mod with an Atty. Battery is sony 18650 3.7v. I'm not aspiring to win, but would like to.. well, not embarrass myself.lol.
    I have 26 and 30 ga canthal on hand. Any suggestions on a build that will do well?
    Atm i have a dual parallel micro coil using 30ga running at 0.5 ohms.

    Do you know the rules? There are some cloud contests that makes you build on the spot with the same wire as everybody else within about 10 minutes.

    Ok so here are the rules!!

    -Must come in and register before the contest -No stacked batteries, only 18650s (Vtc 4 & vtc 5 only) -Build must be 0.20 ohms or higher -Must have dry cotton (we will provide the juice)

    You will be judged on distance and density, the combination of these two scores will make up your final score!

    Thanks great thread. But something i cant find is whether or not a mech mod can compete with a box at all.

    VTC4s pack a better punch than the VTC5s if you have both?
    Use a wide bore DT where the hole at the bottom of the 510 connection stays wide
    Learn the right inhale/exhale techniques (some "cloud chasers" have no idea about it)

    You want to have a build that is closest to the 2 ohms limit, but still keep the surface area.

    I would suggest a dual parallel coil on a sleeper build, unless you can use cheater wire.

    Is there anyway you could explain how to build? I can't seem to find it on YouTube. I know how to build dual parallel coils, but what is sleeper build and what is a cheater wire?

    Edit:
    Sorry YouTube must have been jank yesterday. Searched it today and found RIP Trippers video. 3.2 ohms.. definitely not bad. Excellent vape production. Thanks for the tip. :D

    Cheater wires is non kanthal wires, they are low resistance wires like royal wires or g plat wires. It is NOT a good idea to use them for parallel coil builds, but if used doing normal coils you can add more wraps but still keep lower resistance than kanthal, it just needs to be built differently, but it's more advanced wire that you'd have to calculate more to stay safe.

    No problem good luck in your competition. Just be sure to make sure your batteries are taking and holding a charge.
