What are good coils for MTL of this kind?
Hi,

What is a good coil option for this atomizer?
I was looking at SKU 1593906 and all listed models in the drop list with different resistances and 1 wick vs 4 wicks.

Its my first experience with thread wicks.

Thanks,

Should should just wrap your own coils. Pick up SKU 1986902, SKU 1243300, SKU 6708500, SKU 2126500, and SKU 3237600 + SKU 3237700. Then you'll be good to go for years.

Thanks guys,
I already hve all the wire building stuff, i do it for my other sub ohms.
but i dont know about the thread wick, i think these tanks only support this kind, right? Look at the picture it looks like a very narrow wick channel.

No, you can use cotton (or rayon, if that's your thing). The SvoëMesto original kit came with silica wicks back in the days when that's just what people used, and a lot of the clones include everything that was in the original kit. Use a 2.5mm coil (8 wraps of 28AWG/0.32mm Kanthal for 1.4Ω is sort of the standard build, but that's just a guideline) and cotton and you'll be happy.

(Hint: put the cotton through the coil and "bunny ear" it up through the lower chamber when you attach that. If you trim the cotton to the top of the chamber, it'll be the right length to poke down and just hit the juice shelf. There's no need to fuss around with a generation-3 Kayfun; you get a foolproof build every time with a minimum amount of time spent.)

The build essellar suggested is exactly what I did for years and a couple of generations of Kayfuns. It just worked perfectly every time.

Some people like to position the coil diagonally and use a thin piece of cotton that they bend back and stick to the positive block to form some kind of an 's' (hence s-wick method). This is what the inventor suggested when those atties came out and everybody was wicking with silica or ekowool.

I liked the 2.5mm AWG28 Kanthal coil better as a perpendicular contact coil (about 1.5-2mm above the airhole) and learned wicking it (with cotton) by watching a youtube video by cloud50 (a guy who was known for drilling out the air channels of Kayfuns to loosen the draw a bit in a time before open draw tanks). He just fluffed up the cotton ends a lot and filled the pockets to both sides of the positive block generously with the fluffed up cotton (if you pushed the cotton in a bit too much just pull it up again a milimeter or two so that the ends sit gently on top of the deck and don't bunch up).

This worked perfectly for me with the KFL+ v2 to the V4 and the Mini V3 I've bought for my mom. I never experienced any flooding and the only time I ever had the slightest problem with dry hits was in winter time with the KFL and 60VG juice when the eliquid was too thick to get through a narrow spot between the chamber and the plastic window of the tank of the nano kit (In normal mode the window sits higher so there is no narrow spot, but I liked the flavour of the nano kit better).

Cheers!

edit: All that being said, I have to admit that I preferred the V4 though because it got rid of the single tubed L-shaped airflow channel and pulled the air from all four sides resulting in a smoother draw. The Mini v3 is probably the most hassle-free way to vape a Kayfun and it kept the airflow of the V4. I personally wouldn't get the Prime because I find it's way to adjust the draw inferior to the way it was done in previous models, no matter if you prefer the KFL or the V4/V3 Mini.

Here's a basic video for setting up a Kayfun Lite. This one was made in 2013 and there are many more that you can search for.

Wow, this was a big thing like 4 years ago.

Thanks guys for all the info you provided. Its really helpful.
I didnt know that brand name was Kayfun, so i was searching for “Lite rta” with no findings.
I will stick with the 1.4 ohm build you guys suggested with s shape cotton wicks.

Thanks again FT buddies.

Playing with ni200, nichromium, ss, kanthal, twisted coils is imho something for more experienced vapers. Maybe op is, maybe not. I would start with 26, 28 and 30 kanthal, and then see from there. Just my opinion.
