    Hello apes
    I’m hoping you can give me some advice on how best to build using Dicodes own nife30. I’ve made a couple of attempts using a spaced 8 wrap 2.5 id coil at around 0.43 ohm with CB Prime & Prime Vapes juice mixed with PG nic shots. My set up is a 24mm Kayfun Lite 2019 & Dicodes Dani 21700.

    My issue is a distinct lack of flavour! When I use some prebuilt NI80 Nature Vape MTL Fused Clapton coils the flavour is great but I really want to make the most of the Dicodes mods TC, it’s the main reason I bought the device!
    Is it wicking, coil placement, TCR settings, or should I be lowering my expectations on what results I will get from a simple single wire build? What do esteemed apes think or advise?
    Thank you!

    What TCR do you have it set to? Resistherm is 320, while Stealthvape's is 500

    Don't wick tight for TC. Cotton should pass through the coil with little/no resistance to help the wicking to keep up.

    I have it set to ‘wire 320 Nife30’ using the dicodes wire. I also have some Stealthvape Nife30 but not tried it yet.

    You should try rewicking it as @nwhornet suggests and let us know how it goes. I'll fire up my mini and look how it's set up if it's still not working for you.

    Thanks guys, I’m going to try again now with a looser wick as you both suggest.

    Do you space your coil? What is the effect of dry burning Nife30.? Recommended or not?

    Spacing is always best for TC, I only glow NiFe to a dark red to clean it up, never brighter.

    What wattage and temp settings are you using?
    For that coil I would have wattage at 30 - 35 and temperature at 420 -450 F.
    Also are you initialising the coil resistance at room temperature?

    This is how it looks, wick not restricted and touching the base of the ports

    I’ve been Vaping it around 20w at 420f so I’ll up the watts. Yes I’ve been through the room temp analysis procedure.
