    Here are the pictures of the Magma modified with Kayfun Lite parts that I posted about this afternoon. See that post for details.

    These modifications gives it a lot more air flow for sure.
    I am thinking about making a ring with two air holes that will sit flush and even in the space where the normal Magma air adjustment ring would go. Then it will look just like a Kayfun Plus with a nano kit.
    I could then have a lot of fun telling people that it is a new type of Kayfun with improved air flow system, but not take it apart and let them see what it really is.

    It is my favorite dripper to use.

    How does the juice not leak out the air holes? Or do you only fill the juice well in the Magma part?

    I only fill the juice well in the Magma base. I use it just like any other Magma.
    It only reason for the modifications is to increase the air flow and lower the vapor temperature by using the drilled Kayfun Lite top cap. The nano tank sections are required to use the Kayfun top cap.
    It just looks like a Kayfun Lite, but it is still a Magma dripper.

    Post # 52.

    I can see the advantage for vapor production (increased volume) and cooler vape. But doesn't it affect flavor intensity with all that extra volume? That's my favorite characteristic of the Magma- great flavor!

    That was my thoughts as well. The lower the dome, the denser the vape. The denser the vape, the more flavor.

    HCigar Magma clone

    Single 28ga 3" diameter @ 2 ohms wicked with rayon. I hate the drip tip, usually use a black soft tip (see Tobh pic). Does OK on the Wife's MVP, better on my Vamo @ 15 watts with stacked 350s.

    Testing gapped coils at the moment...

    http:// [​IMG]Picked up a magama yesterday as my first rda and did a single micro coil @1.4 with 28g kanthal. The thing works great and has really good flavor. I'm vaping 6mg evaperated zomberry.

    Right below the threading, and under the AFC ring, is a groove. If you take an o-ring from a Kayfun tank and put it in that groove (takes a little massaging to get flush) the AFC will no longer spin freely. That simple fix made the Magma go from "good" to "great" for me.

    Also, not my idea. I read it somewhere. :p

    Thanks for the tips - got my magma clone yesterday...threw in a single parallel coil (courtesy of suckmymod) - threw in an oring (courtesy of Richard Ng) - 30 gauge kanthal - 2mm bit / 8ish wraps (lost count lol) - 1.4 ohms - now I just pushed the coil closer to the deck - (I thinks not bad for a newbie who's only 98 days into vaping...) - just pushed the coil closer to the deck - (courtesy of ecf)...

    Many thanks and vape safe!

    My Magma comes in tomorrow, how much cotton are you actually supposed to have in the build? Before I got rid of my previous one a few months back, I just had a the tails touching the bottom of the well but I was wondering if there was a new way to do it. Also, are there any leaking issues with having a single coil build using this wick method? I have a regulated device now and would like to try 1.1 ohm on it.

    I use just enough to touch the bottom of the wells and then I push it right up against the edge towards the air holes. As for your second question, I've never built it single coil but with mine anyway when I have closed off the afc I didn't get any leaking.
