I am making a coil for a phoenix RBA clone using 2.5 mm silica wick and 32 ga kanthal wire. The RBA, wick and wire were all bought and recommended by the vendor. They have a video of heating the wire and silica to burn off chemicals. i don't have a torch as they used in the video, but a do have a bic lighter which i used. The lighter turned the wire red hot as expected, but the burning discolored the wick, which I don't think is supposed to happen. Should I not be using the bic lighter for this purpose? Is something wrong with the silica wick? Any ideas appreciated. And yes this is my first RBA and probably don't know what I'm doing. I did get it set up with a resistance of ~1.8 ohms, but it doesn't give much vapor at all.
