Dan D. Dirges: Why are you doing this? I was told all you have to do is screw in a new
atomizer coil head every couple weeks.
gill gilchrist: Ps-does eBay do those pliers lol I buy my gear from eBay cause don't no
sc0tte1: I love my T3, it came with my eVic and honestly think it vapes better than
my Viva Nova and my Kanger Protank 3...As soon as this coil goes bad I'm
definitely going to try my hands at doing a rebuild to save money and not
order replacement coils anymore.
Sojko Macka: Where can i get these flavour wicks, note im not from america?
HylianChocobo: Will building my own coil increase the performance any? I love my EVODs,
I've had, I think, four(?) of them for almost a month now, but already as a
new vaper I'm finding myself wanting to move on to something a little
Matthew Poole: Love your products man! I'm going to try and rebuild one of these kanger
coils for sure!
gill gilchrist: I'm new to all this I got 2mm wick&1mm for flavour going to try it for
first time on my protank mini evod,question should mini protank get hot
near coil while vaping?my new one I just got is hot
sc0tte1: Ps can't you just use a regular electrical multi-meter to measure the
resistance instead of getting one of these specialized meters with the
screw attachments? That's what I'm going to be doing. Even though my eVic
shows the resistance, I'm not sure how accurate it is.
LOCO808: Got it first try, thanks a lot bro.
Karim D: Hi
Slightly off topic, which camera are you using to do this video ?
timmerdonkey: Can someone tell me what silicon wick is? I have tanks but don't have
access to replace coil or I just need the wick. don't want to start smoking
cigs again, I live in the phils, small island no access to coil heads or
whatever this stuff is called.
Jake Wheeler: I'm using the same battery, when I begin the dry burn my battery blinks 2-3
times. W/no burn. Please help!!
Veronica Stewart: HELLO ! JUST WANTED TO SAY LIKE YOUR VID. , YOU GO IN TO DETAIL AND FOR ME
THATS WHAT I NEED ! MY FIRST BUILD 2 OMS. BUT NOW WHY THE HOT WATER WHAT
DOES THAT DO ?
e roder: thank you !!!! nice vid ...very clear!!
Amon Bvb: in romania, a coil costs somewhere around 2 dollars. with this money i can
buy kanthal and silica wires to build about 20-30 coils. SAVINGS ! thanks
for the tutorial xD
Notorious Sherry: Is the effort really worth it when replacements are so cheap?
joey r rampersaud: great video! i just had a few questions. i opened it up and saw that the
wires were wrapped closely. why did you you choose to do it spaced apart?
and can i use a lower gauge wire like a 30 or 28 and if so how many wraps
would you say would be best for clouds and less throat hit?
Kay Anderson: Do you recommend 32 gauge @ 13.75 ohms/ft or the 5.27 ohms/ft? Great
video! I'm just ordering the supplies to rebuild for the first time. Can
you use copper, brass or gold wire? Kay
Shinobi-Vapor: Great video. Just did my first coil rebuild for my itaste vv 3. Hit 2
ohms on my coil and was able to fix my hot spots. Next time I'm going to
try for 1.5 ohms. Would love to see a video of you building a IGO-W or
msparker32: Thanks for posting. Very informative.
Gary McGeorge: Hello Snaredrummmer88!!! i just purchased some wick, wire and tools from
your ebay account. great prices if anybody out there is wondering. my
questions is are you torching the wick and/or wire before you are
rebuilding the coil? thanks alot for everything!
Crystal Miller: Great video, just thought I would point out a few things I do differently:
I prefer to torch the silica and the wire before building the coil. This
gets rid of the silica taste and makes the wire easier to work with
(reducing the springy-ness of the wire). I also build the coil a little
differently. instead of wrapping the coil directly on the silica I wrap it
around a tooth pick or 18 gauge needle then set the needle in place on the
head and assemble the head around it. This allows you to replace the
wicking material without removing the whole coil (especially nice if you
use hemp or cotton). You can look up the coiling technique by googleing
"micro coil build" or something to that effect.
magrosi65: Why did you dryburn a fresh coil? Thanks!
Eric Rhodes: Wow bookmarked this video awhile back and never got around to watching it
until now. Then realized I ended up finding you on eBay not even knowing it
was the same person in the video I had bookmarked. Good stuff. Anybody
looking for wick and wire should check his eBay listings. Super cool guy,
good prices and well packaged for shipment.
Mike Santiago: I ended up doing this and it works out great! Good tutorial, thanks alot
Kennykid2002: Do you recommend smaller sized wick for the T3/T3S, or just going straight
alex nguyen: What would happen if you substitute a stainless steel wick for the silica
TucsonSteve24: Dude, your vids rock! I will be buying the stuff I need to rebuild my coils
from now on! And for the guys asking why rebuild, get a clue! It's cheap,
easy, and you always have a new coil. I say, why not!
Mikeos: I tried this with some wick and a bit of coil the guy at my local ecig shop
gave me. Massive fail. Tasted disgusting, so I must have messed up. I think
it was the dry burn. Every time I've ever tried dry burning it always seems
to make the taste worst. Great video though, but I think I'll just stick to
buying a 5 pack of replacement heads for my evod!
richardkkirk: Shawn, where did you get your resistance tester from, hoping to get one
Mellowman468: thicker coil.
Mike Santiago: I've actually had a coils that I haven't used, (I was sent the wrong coils)
I took them apart and put them in the evod as described. It worked, so I
decided to order in the wire and silica wick so I could do this on my own.
I just have one question. Why do you dry burn the coil? I've never done
this before with any coil and I've always wondered why it was done. Also I
guess why must they soak?
Umair G: Hey. Does it really matter which side is positive or negative. I mean one
of them is going to use the rubber grommet as an insulator and the other
one the base.
Snaredrummmer88: Yes, that is the case. I don't know of any off the top of my head where it
does matter. It's just completing a circuit.
Snaredrummmer88: Meh, I haven't had a lot of luck, but don't let me stop you. Too leaky for
Snaredrummmer88: You can absolutely use nichrome, If you are looking for kanthal wire
though, check the description on this video for links to kanthal wire on
ebay and amazon
Ken M: Is this rebuild exactly the same for the protank?..Dry burn necessary
Snaredrummmer88: They will last a couple days to a couple weeks depending on your habit. I
confess to being a chain vaper, and they last me 2-4 days. My Girlfriend
however doesn't need a new one built but once ever 1-2 weeks.
Twyggaerynn: Great video bud, thanks! I do have a couple of questions, if you don't mind
please. Does placing wick over the coil impact the vapor production since
the vapor from the coil has to filter past the top wicks? And also, what is
the purpose of soaking it in water? The dry burn I can understand, but I am
a little confused about the soaking. I picked up some wick, and am looking
forward to trying this rebuild myself. Thanks!
yrrocks1: 'Got the wicking & wire from ya (very nice, thank you!)...and the meter
from madvapes. But we prefer 2.5 ohms rather than 2.0...so we went with 8
wraps instead of 6 to get the 2.5 resistance. WHOA - it seriously altered
the taste of our juices (some for the better, some for the worse). All our
other gear is 2.5 and there's no substantial difference in taste. What do
you suggest we use (and how many wraps) to achieve 2.5 resistance? T
Ryan R: Where did you get your ohm checker from?
Snaredrummmer88: The meter is at mapvapes.com . Just put "meter" in their search bar and you
will find it
Zachary Gray: I can't seem to get one tasting good. I bought your 2mm silica and 32g
kanthol. Maybe I shouldn't have tried to save money and only bought 2mm
silica? I just use one 2mm piece for the flavor wick, could that be my
problem? I even did a boil after a dry burn for about 3 hours. The taste is
kind of metallic, like a toaster cooking nothing. Any help would be
appreciated, if I need to buy some 1 mm wick from you just let me know. Thx
for the vid!
Snaredrummmer88: I soak to remove residual matter from the wick and coil after dry burning.
Alternatively, you could torch the coil and wick assembly before
Mike Reynolds: how long will a build last before you have to rebuild it again? I am
complete newbie to this, I have bought 2 batteries and three tanks, been
using them in rotation about 10 days and they are all tasting a lot worse
than when they were new. Is this re-build thing something you have to do
every other day?
Mick .F: Great video!! Awesome close ups and you do excellent work. Any chance
you'll be doing an iClear 30 rebuild?
Snaredrummmer88: Hmm, I only have 1, but I use it constantly and need a new coil head every
Snaredrummmer88: Well, I personally use 2x 1mm flavor wicks, but otherwise i think the taste
might be from loose coil, right where it exits the wick and heads for the
metal base. That has been my biggest trouble spot, once perfected there it
has been a very happy vape :-).
