Shit forgot - Standard .28g wrap .7 now. Going to wrap it with some 26g/28g 'twisted' and .8 x 1mm ribbon I snagged that is working real nice on a few of my drippers.

It is a bit of a pain but I think I've sorted the leaking out on mine. The tank is tiny though which is a pain but it does taste great. it's my first RBA so i threw myself in at the deep end with it (I didn't want to be normal and get a kayfun lol) and I'm very glad I did. Indeed it is very tasty and plooms like a train
I never asked for this

+1 details

Build is from older pics, but just pulled it off the shelf this weekend, re-wicked and it vaped nicely.

6 wraps of 28AWG on a 5/32" (~2 mm) bit, mounted vertically over the holes with cotton wrapped tight around the outside of coil and tucked into channels. Pic shows the untrimmed cotton. I find the vertical coils over the holes produce a slightly cooler vape, less turbulent air flow than horizontal.

If i get around to it, may do chimneys with 28 AWG directly on the hole with the bottom lead tucked under the negative post. I just fear melting the positive post insulator.

Yea careful with the insulator on the aqua from here... mine is a bit melted from just using normal horizontal coils too close to it.
I tried dual vertical coils for a while however I found that the vapor production was just not there. Actually the way I use the aqua now I find works really well. I use it almost 24/7 and only switch to my kayfun when I have to.
I wrap nice lose 'old school' coils 2 mm in diameter with 26 gauge kanthal (No coils touching). I do around 6 wraps and get about 0.6 ohms. I then thread in 2 mm braided hollow silica with cotton threaded in the center of the braid. It vapes great, wicks really well and never burns or gives bad taste due to the 26 gauge kanthal holding its heat.

I tried with micro coils but I found that without any gaps in the kanthal to let the vapor out the center of the wick was burning while the vape only came from the small space outside the coil.
