Me whining here is excluding all other design "features", those are subjective pros and cons.



This tank has very little room for wrapping the wire, to prevent a short you must build the wire half-way through the screws, then bend them up at the middle point. Do not wrap around the end of the deck!

basically, use 28g and higher, please be safe!

sorry, I haven't build a coil I'm happy with yet, I need smaller wire.

I might be in the minority, but I can't vape this at the moment.

Unable to put a build in a tank is a 0/10 score for me. I
need time to figure out how to make it work, safely.

It's an MTL tank, are you trying to ram framed staples in there or something? 2.5mm 28ga is exactly what you should be using.

Nope, just warning people little room is between the deck and chamber... very little, tiny. (almost a mistake by the designers)

The guy in the video below has a great way of cutting his leads on a small deck, looks like 28g kanthal 2.5mm

Yeah, the metal fatigue technique is old school. Not so great with stainless though, you're better off clipping and then if you've still got excess just smash it flat with a screwdriver or coil rod.
Deck looks plenty big to me, like a cross between a Kayfun and a Serpent Mini.

Did you buy it from here @gav616?
It seems like it is the upgraded version with the PEK insulator around the aircube
The pic from here shows the deck without the insulator

That's exactly what I did. cut them as close to the deck as possible (not wrapping them round), then bashed them flat. No issues now.

I use it without the airflow insert and fully open for a restricted DTL, really nice flavour. (no spit back, leaking, or whistle)

I always wiggle the wire as well. It does two things, the first is to get it to be close to the deck. The second, is to make sure the leads are properly. If the coil wiggles while you're trying to break the lead, then you didn't tighten the screw enough. Sometimes you wiggle and it will dislodge a bit. Wiggling is a must for me. It makes for a secure connection.
