    I wouldn't go smaller than 2.5mm for a Zeus coil regardless of wick material. You simply need more wick to avoid flooding.

    IMO, not below 3mm.

    I would have agreed with you when I received mine. Since then there are a few having good results using a 2.5mm coil. They're not getting the flooding or spit back I would have expected.

    The question is are they getting as good result as bigger coil?

    My Zeus just arrived and can see the deck (base under coil) and the walls around the coil touch the tank body when screwing it. Is this OK? I almost have to push it to enter the. I have not vaped on it yet but I would expect that it should enter and screw without any pressure. Thanks

    Some have tried several coil diameters. What you or may find to be a better vape does not equal a better vape for everyone. It always comes down to simple preferences.

    Your fine, the rta won't screw in completely if you don't have the deck seated correctly.

    So I have two coils that I use with the Zeus right now and both of them work really well for me.

    If I am in a hurry and need to change out the coil fast
    2.5mm
    SS316L 24g
    spaced 7 wrap
    Single strand
    Scottish roll that is a snug but easy to pull through fit in the coil, but I don't comb or thin out the tails. I kind of fluff it just a little bit and stick it in the wick holes and have it touch the bottom of the tank.
    Around 17-22 watts

    This coil produces about 90% of the flavor that I am used to with a bigger coil, but I don't have to spend any time working with the wick to thin it out. And for the past 4 weeks my time has been super limited and this has worked wonders. It does seem to last about 4-7 days.

    If I have the time, my favorite coil...
    3.5mm
    SS316L 24g
    spaced 6 wrap
    Twisted double strand
    Scottish roll that is snug and a little harder to pull through the coil. With this one I comb out the tails until I have thinned out about 40% of the cotton.
    Around 45-55 watts

    This coil produces the best flavor for me by far, but usually takes 30-60 minutes to really get the wick to work the way that it needs to. This lasts 5-7 days before I get a burnt hit and have to change it out. This produces a nice thick dense cloud that is slightly warm.

    You are fiddling too much with your wick if it takes more than 10-15 minutes even using scottish roll.

    Ok.

    First rewick woes.

    I thought I did it the same way that worked almost perfectly the first time but I'm getting far less vapor and a strong cotton taste.

    Does this mean too much cotton? To little?

    Same coil obviously. Same wattage.

    Thoughts?

    If you are getting juice in your mouth it's definitely flooding.

    Try thicker tails and maybe post a picture or two.

    GeekVape responded to my request for a replacement Deck so my UK TPD tank will be 4ml capacity..

    They replied today and they have them available on the website!

    They also have the metal Trim for the AEGIS So you can switch up your colour scheme... Only Black and Silver at the moment.. I am hanging on for the Gunmetal!

    PS. Chinese Holiday until 22nd of February

    So with the base on the mod, I have 0.5 ohm. When I screw it on the tank, it reduces to 0.22. I guess something is causing the resistance to change but can't find what is causing this. If I screw partially, it shows the right resistance, when I tighten it it reduces to 0.22 or shows atomizer short. I have the black color if that makes any difference. Anybody faced something similar.

    The coil is probably too high and touching the chimney. You'll have to clip legs. What size is your coil?

    Chimney comes down lower over the air towers than you would imagine.
