    I didn't think you could only use kanthal by itself. I hate working with the non resistance wire. But, I've been using 32g Kanthal with only a little over one inch between the NR wire. Maybe that has been my problem.

    If I only used the 32g Kanthal neg connection through to the positive connection how many wraps would you suggest for 2.0 to 1.5 ohms

    you cant just use kanthal by itself, you need nr wire for sure. i think some people have tried just straight 28 gauge kanthal without nr wire, but i wouldnt recommend it by any means.

    32 gauge kanthal a1 is 13.1 ohms a foot. that mean every inch you get 1.09 in resistance. so if you wanted 1.5-1.7 or so, youd need about 1 and a 1/2 to 1 and 3/4 inches or so. make sure the nr wire is securely wrapped on the kanthal, i like 999 dead soft silver wire. i also find that if you wrap at least one round of nr wire around the wick at either end helps quite a bit. then just connect the nr wire as you would. depending on how thick your wick is it could be anywhere from 5 wraps on 2mm wick to 3-4 wraps on 3mm. just depends i guess. youll definately get the hang of it...theres a good amount of trial and error with this atty, but once you get it you'll be stoked.

    pictures usually help, so take a look here:

    not sure this helps at all.

    The difference is the channels for the wick is wider, 2 mm vs 3mm , there are some other minor difference in the ceramic and it's housing.
    The V2 housing with it's ceramic will fit in place of the V1 assembly. But it would cost about as much as another Terminator without much improvement cost wise.

    Thanks!

    I'm assuming the increased width is for larger wicks.....Is this something that could be modded with a dremel and diamond bit?

    I expect Stormy to receive extra ceramics any day now, I will have to have an extra one before I try that but that is my plan. I am told it doesn't make much difference but I shall try it anyway. I mod everything, except the batteries

    like dw said, wider channels for wicks in v2, and only one ceramic channel for the positive wire, the other channel is metal in v2 for easier connection of neg wire. other than that its almost identical to v1. v2 also has 2 grooves cut into the bottom of the base near the 510 connector for better airflow, has 4 grooves in the top cap instead of 2...

    They will be here later today, they sat in Atlanta all day yesterday! When I called, they said "today" UGGG! So, if they arrive, they will ship out to y'all tomorrow. Sorry...although it's still a couple days before expected. :)

    I'm waiting to see if Stormy's has the Terminator o-ring kit before I order the ceramic cup.

    Still waiting on shipping notification for mine. The smaller drip only tank arrived today and I could not be happier with the quality of it!
