    Picked one up at my local b&r and when i do a build (using 2 2.7ohm coils) only one side gets good and hot while other is slow to light up. This produces very little vapor anhd kind of sucks. Any tips or ideas would be great!!!

    What are you using the nimbus on? What gauge kanthal? What kind of coil?

    Make sure your post screws are tightened enough would be the first thing I check.

    Oh look, another Texan! Howdy neighbor. Just snug the screws down like yaypudding said, but not too tight because you can break the wires. Also adjust, poke, prod, and pinch those coils until they are symmetrical. You want them to be identical. What are you wicking with, Jay?

    Both sides have to be even or one side will heat up faster.

    Edit- let me add, that pinching your coils can be a little deceiving. They'll glow evenly but once you let it cool down completely and fire it again one side will glow faster than the other. The problem is one wire is longer than the other.

    Ok it seems i left some things out, i am using a sid, 32g & 2mm silica folded in in 3 so i get 6mm under coil. After posting i went and played with it some more and got my first great setup. Still love my igo-l and have been switching between the two.

    just make sure both coils are identical if not exactly the same so that they will light up evenly....check the number of loops and length of the legs to be sure
