    i checked that too...im going to try to do it again with the smaller coil again just to see if anything changes..we still want to use the kf because of the flavor even tho we are getting 2 more lemos's

    5/32nds is a large coil. I use 5/64ths. Most people keep it 3/32 or 5/64ths.

    5/64ths, 10-wrap, 28 gauge gets you 1.5 ohms. Use as reference.

    Whatever works bingoking. Lemos are just another version of a Kayfun so if you're good at one you'll be good at the other.

    Hope you are sorting it out. I assume that you have removed the screw in the air hole completely? I agree with using a smaller coil. I use a 16 ga blunt needle.

    ya..i saw the hole in the center pin when i tore it apart..made sure it was clean..and also made sure it lined up with the main hole...i wish it had a touch more of a air hole ..did a 5/64 coil about a hour ago..10 wraps..ohms were 1.1..seems a little better..ill have my wife test it when she gets home in about 3 hours

    i took the center pin out..checked it,,nothing...made sure i got it back inline..built a new coil..5/64..10 wraps...1.1 ohm...its just above the deck..but not touching..the wife will be home in a few hours..ill have her test..i think its a little better..but i wish it had a bigger air hole for adjustment!!

    It doesn't matter if the air hole in the pin is inline with the air hole on the base. Same amount of air flows. Just be sure it's tight so that the positive post doesn't swivel on the insulator pad.

    Completely remove the AFC grub screw from the bottom of the base to be sure that is not obstructing the air flow.

    The coil should be about 1.5-2mm above the above the deck air hole, not too close to the deck.

    You were either shorting the coil or suffocating it. 5/32 is a very large diameter. Stick to the 5/64ths or 3/32nds and you should be good. Glad it is working for you guys. :)

    Food for thought. Ever wonder why everyone loves the Aspire BVC coils? There's a lot of wicking material outside the coil. The smaller the coil you make, the less juice there is for long draws and chain vaping. Larger coils allow more wick, better vapor/flavor, faster wicking, allows chain vaping and higher wattages. I use 3mm coils on most of my builds these days, and wonder why it took me so long to figure this out.

    Yes, i think increased coil size is a better vape but there are offsets.

    On my Kayfuns, I'm coiling three - 3mm silica wicks together and getting great vapor and flavor and they chain vape without a problem. .

    im going to measure our lemo's coils when we change cotton..they looked alot bigger than 5/64! we both have the same ohm reading at 1.1 and with both coils in the kay fun it was close to that..i guess this is the fun of vaping!!
