    Since the Mjolnir is a fixed voltage (3.7v) device, I'd recommending a lower ohm coil, like 1.5-1.7. Also, what are you using for a wicking material? I use 3mm silica and it works very well.

    Try adding an extra 2cm - 3cm piece of silica where you wrap your coil, so you're wrapping your coil around double wick. You don't have to double the wick all the way down the wick channels, unless you simply prefer it that way. For 0.16mm (34 gauge) Kanthal A-1 I like a 2-over-3 wrap coil to make about a 1.8 ohm coil. I use 3mm wick and only 30% VG juice, though, so you might have to experiment to get satisfying results.

    I think the issue i have been having is the fact that my juice is 20/80 pg/vg. I have to open the flow valve quite a bit, and that is choking the juice that is above the valve off, so I end up with a basically empty clear section (giant air bubble), which causes vapor production to basically stop, even though there is still 3-4 ml still in the top. Hopefully this weekend I can get to my friend's so I can use his lathe to angle the section of the valve that is choking the juice from flowing down. I will post pics later

    I have no problems using 3mm wick and 100% VG juice using the Nautilus v2 (long) from vapor-freak.de it's using a new ceramic housing fixes all the problems described in this thread.

    Are you referring to the v2 ceramic cup assembly? We have these on the website but everything we sell has been v2 for awhile now.

    Have you seen the pos nut change color like this before? I posted it over here and it doesn't sound normal.

    It just seems really odd that it's only on the nut, well very little on the o-ring, but everything around it isn't doing it. It's likes it's baked on there, it will come off with some hard scrubbing. Does anyone know for sure that nut is SS? The only thing I can think of is it's making a very weak electromagnet with the wire wrapped around the post and creating a powder coating effect or it's not SS and some part of the juice it baking on to it, hopefully its not staining galvanic corrosion. The color is not the same as the juice, it more red than brown like the juice.
