    Thanks. I got to tell you I realized I have an extra tank so I am glad he was out of the silver last time. I bought the top tank kit and then I purchased the subvod - which came with a top tank so I have 2 top tanks. I realized this because I was going through my vape bin to give some of my old stuff to someone that wants to start vaping and I realized I have a brand new top tank.

    Meantime I assembled my own coil kit in a cool box I have with --wire cutters, coilers, some pre-made coils, ohm reader, baby screwdrivers, cotton, rba bases, ceramic tweezers so I think I am just about ready to go. Going to try the pre-mades Saturday and just waiting for the wire I ordered.

    Rec'd my fasttech order - the second RBA deck I ordered came with the larger holes. Yay. So I have the original with the small holes and this other one with the large ones.

    I've been using the 24 with 6 wraps with a 2.5 core but am coming in .41. Flavor is great but it is a little lower than what I want. I am counting each full wrap as 1 each and the 2 on each end as 1 together.

    Is that right?

    I'd like to get the resistance in the .5 to .67 range if possible.

    Any more advice?

    For me, I like 26ga, ramps up/cools off quicker.
    2.5-3mm, 7 wraps...around .8ohm

    7 wraps of 24ga should get you close to .6ohm

    Count the top wraps. Coil legs down, number of wraps showing on top. I just made a Kanthal 24 AWG 6 wraps. Here are photos. Hope they show what you are looking for. I don't really use Kanthal any more, I just made this to show the wraps.

    Fuzzy sorry but you can see 6 wraps with legs down.

    Thanks. Pic helps a lot. I will try again. I think I need one more wrap. Just lost one of the chimney screws.....on the extra so I will wait till the other one needs a change.

    If you lost them inside. Just drag a strong magnet around in the area lost. They are magnetic. Have found them after losing them in carpet that way many times

    OK I just tried again - 6 wraps and it is coming in .41 - I counted from the top. I have 2 rba's - authentic Kanger and not authentic. I was using the non because it has the larger air holes. The premade coil it came with was fine.

    Now I took the coil I made and tried it in both and on the kanger and it is at .41. *&&*****

    So I tried again and I got it at .55 to me it is 7 wraps if I count from the top but 5 plus the 2 1/2 ends is 6?. I should take it off and try on the non-authentic but I am not. It's perfect - great taste - not leaking -- fingers crossed!

    I'm thrilled I got one and will keep trying. I did space this one a bit....if that makes a difference.

    Another one came out at .67 which I really like so I will keep practicing.

    Thanks for all the help

    Happy Easter all - wanted to post a follow-up.

    I figured out what the problem was.

    One of my airflow connector pieces is bad.

    That is why I was getting different resistance reads.
