I just ordered the Kangertek Subtank, my buddy had it so I tried it. I enjoyed it but I have also seen one called the "Arctic" I believe. I may buy that one but it is so dang expensive!
I also have the kanger sub tank and I just tried building with 24 Kanthal. Works well! I did 5 wraps around a relatively large drill bit. No more dry hits like I had with 28.I have been using and been in love with my Kanger Subtanks for quite awhile now.
In particular, I love the RBA heads that come with them.
The tiny size of the things are daunting when you start to think of making a coil, installing it and adding wick.
Turns out as easy as can be.
I have purchased extra RBA head for the tanks and I build them all with 24 gauge Kanthal A-1 wire.
After every 3 tanks of E-Liquid, I remove the RBA head, replace with another RBA head, prime it, fill the tank and enjoy.
Then when I have a few minutes that I am not doing anything with, I take the used RBA, remove the wick, do a dry burn, install a new wick and then set it last in line for the next time I need to do this.
BTW, I HATE having to purchase pre built coil heads for like $2 each when it cost me about $0.005 to build my own and they work as well as the OCC heads. And they don't burn through the E-Liquid as fast as well!
I am beyond glad that you met with success building with 24 gauge Kanthal!!!I also have the kanger sub tank and I just tried building with 24 Kanthal. Works well! I did 5 wraps around a relatively large drill bit. No more dry hits like I had with 28.
Good stuff. I tried to space a little bit, but I was afraid the resistance would be too low if i used less wraps.I am beyond glad that you met with success building with 24 gauge Kanthal!!!
Easy Peasy Right?
For your next trick if you don't mind........
Build the exact same coil with a bit of spacing in between.
Just enough to see the gaps between the coils.
Just that small bit of difference can make all things better. Flavor (first with me as always) and vapor production.
PLUS if you did it right and do a dry burn every two to three tanks, install some new wick and those coils could last you for months!
Before I forget, what is the resistance reading of your coils?
BTW, I freely admit that even after 6 months of DE,TTO Wet Shaving, I am still new in the grand scheme of things.
When it comes to Vaping, after about 4 years, I like to think I know what I am talking about.
And that I am not just another pretty face!
All you really need is a small amount of daylight between the coils to get the maximum effect.Good stuff. I tried to space a little bit, but I was afraid the resistance would be too low if i used less wraps.
I got .5 ohms with 5 wraps on a 7/64 bit. It was a big coil, but i was afraid the res would get too low with a smaller bit. It got kind of squished together when I tightened down the screws and tweaked it with some pliers, but I figure the extra cotton can soak up way more juice. I haven't changed my wick in like a week, and I vape around 9 ML a day. Doesn't appear to be too fried yet.
I should change out the wick more frequently, but I'm pretty lazy!All you really need is a small amount of daylight between the coils to get the maximum effect.
Me, I like to do a dry burn every two to three tanks.
And while I am doing that to keep my coils clean, kinda like I am already doing this so I might as well put in a new wick!
The store that we go to can't recommend Aspire (and the Nautilus) enough, so my wife, then my daughter got one (wife got the normal tank, my daughter the mini).Definitely the Nautilus (standatd size). There is a slightly better flavor production on the mini vs standard, but the difference is almost not noticeable if you're on a high end juice.
Well, I hate to disagree, but the experience we've had is anything but...Once you get some experience with the Nautilus, refilling isn't such a chore.
As far as the air holes, typically once they are set where you want them, you don't change them. Much like the seating position in your car. That said, on the mini, there are indicators just about the adjustment ring to show large hole vs smaller holes.
