    I was actually with it enough this afternoon to take a few hours and recoil and Wick my Griffin 25's
    I decided to do a little experimentation on both of my Griffin's I am using 26/36 clapton wire.
    Coils I normally build are large about 7 to 8 wraps but today I decided to do something different and I made A 4 wrap spaced coil.
    My resistance came in at .33
    In my mind I figgured that the lower resistance I should achieve a faster ramp up and cool down time of the coil this would be good because I am experiencing some Vapor leakage out of the mouth hole and the air holes on the tank.
    My e-juice is having a tendency to turn into Brown sludge.
    In practice I had to turn up my wattage to 35 Watts to get a good Vape on this and it is a much better Vape in all respects.

    Time to break out the Daedalus and make me some 28 gauge Clapton wire. I think I just have too much metal in my coils for how I Vape.
    Or maybe I should just try some plain 28 gauge 4 wrap micro coil.

    Almost there. Ramp up and cool down is not directly related to the resistance but to the mass of the coil. Higher mass = sleepy coil. Less wraps = less surface = less vapor.
    So what you want is a lower mass higher surface coil, your 28g+36g clapton should be a good start (5-7 wraps).
