    I'm no great rebuilder and never rebuilt a CE anything. Pretty sure you won't need mesh though. Stealthvape would be my port of call on the marketplace for the wire. People like different Guages and it comes down to trial and error. Inexpensive though in the grand scheme of things.

    Come on you DIY lot...
     
  4. Oops! I just got the ce5 rebuildable so go with the smallest silica,


    1mm Silica http://marketplace.planetofthevapes...ble-supplies/rebuildable-atomizer-silica-wick

    I use Kanthal A1 .20 but this is a sample pack with 3 different sizes for you to try http://marketplace.planetofthevapes.co.uk/kanthal-rebuildable-atomizer-resistance-wire

    He also does a Nichrome Sampler http://marketplace.planetofthevapes...nichrome-rebuildable-atomizer-resistance-wire


    I prefer the Kanthal but the Nichrome is a lil bit more bendy. The price is right to grab both and have a play.

    Good good :) will I need to use 3 pieces of 1mm silca on each head, and am I right in thinking the thinner the wire for the coil the better the hit I can get, or do I match my wire to my battery
     

  7. It all depends if you want warmer or a cooler vape :)

    Thinner might be best for lots of wraps but I think you could manage!

    Soz I'm quite new at this..wraps as in more coils round the wick? and sure I've seen replacable heads with one wick that's why I wad thinking of using one 3mm wick instead of three 1mm wicks, to make the rebuild abit easier maybe....
     
  9. You certainly can :) buy all the different sizes so you can have a good play!

    Or am I biting off more than I can chew :D got my first "e cig" on Sunday just gone from tescos and only got my ego kit yesterday, but I like to play lol, and always jump in head first in all my hobbies and pastimes

    Just to add no stinky ciggies for 3 days, vaping is what I've been searching for all my life, been a smoker 20 odd years and sort of enjoy it and never felt like giving up, and now I feel late to the party as I read all this about them being banned, just as I find the reamedy to my dirty addiction I feel so gutted it will be taken from me
