    Hey,

    I was wondering if some of you experts could help me. I've taken a step up in regards to vaping and am going from an Ego style to a mech mod.

    I ordered a HCigar Kraken from vapegeek and just needed some help with what items I should purchase to build the coils.

    Rob advised me to get Kanthal 0.02mm but searching online I really couldnt find this.

    I don't have a ohm meter yet either, but I just wanted some suggestions on which wire/wicks/mesh etc to get and where from so I can order it asap.

    Got some juice from Krakenecigs ordered too so want to get everything ready and working for when that arrives :)

    Although I dont think I will have trouble building the coil, I just need to make sure I get the correct materials to build it with.


    Thanks in advance

    Stealthvape for your wick and wire bud. http://www.stealthvape.co.uk/rebuildable-supplies And i get my ss rope from ebay 1m for 99p and its real good stuff. .20 would be the size of the wire. Kanthal A1 .20 :) you deffo need an ohms checker tho.

    Cool thanks for the suggestions.

    On Stealthvape which mm do you think I should go for? as they dont have 0.02mm as was suggested to me. I'm super excited yet super confused right now lol/ I'm guessing Rob from vape geek may have meant 0.02cm.... so 0.20 mm?

    I'd suggest a sampler pack that contains .2 .25 so you have a choice

    Just built mine with .20Kanthal and 400 grade mesh around 2mm sillca wick.
    Imo an ohm meter is important when duel coiling as 5 wraps of .20 gave me 1.8ohms, do that again on the other side gives .9 ohms combined. Vapes a goodun tho :thumbup:

    Thanks for tips guys. I'm going to be ordering the wire, ohm meter and a few final bits and bobs today.

    could anyone suggest a good battery charger? The first battery I orders is the 18650 AW high drain. There are tons of chargers out there so was just wondering which one you guys use and what you recommend? I seen a efest luc which looks good for £20 but not sure if it's the one I need.


    Thanks

    Efest Luc is a great charger, takes all size batteries and i personally like the display readout as it will tell you the state of the battery through its charge. another advantage is the usb port on it, i use it to plug in an ego charger or the ohm meter for example.

    Nitecore I4 is a good charger.

    Sent from somewhere in Kent.

    Thanks a lot peeps. I'm going to order the efest tonight but before I do I will look in to the Nitecore.

    Can't wait to start vaping properly hopefully by Wednesday!
