    I always use spaced wraps, I make the coil using tight wraps, then stick a needle between the wraps to get them spaced evenly after it is installed in the RBA, works for me.

    Like you, @Bebop, I started with the eGo batteries, but the latest and greatest at the time was an eGo-T. Shortly after I got my first kit the eGo-C pass through came out and I upgraded. Then the Vision Spinner came out (very like an eGo Twist but with a slightly bigger capacity battery), and the rest is history of an empty bank account.

    very interesting.   I see now it's a vertical coil.  but why can't you just pull out the cotton and then stuff some more in there? I know, easier said than done but it might be a fun project....
    it's probably a press fit top on that coil so would be tough to get to.....

    remove cotton
     
    gently burn off old coil and clean (Heating, then rapid dip in cold water)

    Hey Bebop, there is nothing wrong with that at all. Everybody has their own preferences, this just happens to be mine. Yeah I heard the premium was good stuff, I haven't used it personally. I don't always try new things, but every once in a while I find something good...lol

    let us help you.
    tell me what you did to turn it on again.  
    is the top box  not turning on at all?  or is it just not producing vapor?   I'm assuming you have the subtank mini tank on there?   what coils are you using?  do you have a separate charger?   and please take the batteries out and make sure they are not rusted and corroded.....
    hey,  I'm just trying to talk you off the ledge. 
    the sub tank mini is one of the most reliable vapes I've ever owned.   I'm sure we can work it out.

    need more info.
    do you build your own coils? only store bought?
    are you a heavy vaper?   like lots of vapor and power?
    what are the specifics on your beloved set up?
    what resistance?  what wattage do you set? how much do you vape? what nicotine content do you use?

    Bebop got a reaction from Tam in Help with Baby V8 T8 coils   
    You mentioned earlier "3 dry draws" which in my opinion does next to nothing to help prime a coil.    You CAN close off the airflow and do a couple little draws which essentially pulls a little juice in to the coil but I would be gentle with that because you could flood the coil if too much. 
    pulling air over a dry coil does next to nothing.  
     
    hope that helps

    ok
     
     
    yes that may have contributed to it but not sure how.   always safest to check your wattage when installing a new coil.
    Tip:   On a new coil or one I haven't tried before I set my voltage,  not the wattage.   (wattage will adjust automatically).  I set voltage to 3.9, to start,  up to 4.2.     Then I see how it vapes and adjust up or down accordingly to performance.
    I dont know if your device displays wattage and voltage at the same time (most do).
    Also,  that T8 is a large coil (8 coils actually each with their own cotton) so I would make triple sure it is well primed.  that means letting it soak for a couple minutes minimum no matter what else you do to prime it.

    the T8 and the Q2 are very different coils.
     
    the Q2 is a .4 ohm coil which should run very nicely at 50 watts or so.   The T8 is a .15 ohm coil which should take way higher watts around 60 - 80w easily.
     
    Are you verifying your wattage change when you switch the coil to the T8? The T8 would barely heat up at 35w.   It's a mystery that it would burn on one hit at 35w.  doesn't make sense. 
    Did you verify your smok 225 is in wattage mode and not TC (temperature Control) mode?
    I don't know what else to tell you at this point.  It's a mystery.  you may need some hands on help because it doesnt make sense.

    I just want to add for edumacational purposes, youh understand...
    Volts vs Watts
     
    you're looking at two sides of the same equation.
    Watts = Amps x Volts
    So when you change "watts" on your device, you are really adjusting the voltage.  As your "watts" reduce your voltage drops with it.   If I were to draw a piss poor analogy,  think of it like the equation 2 + 2 = 4.     If I change the 4 to 3,   I automatically have to reduce the 2 to 1. (1 +  2 = 3) the 2 sides of the equation are "tied" together.
    so when you change your wattage and see your voltage changing that is what you are seeing; the two sides of the equation "balancing".
    What we are concerned with is exceeding the amp rating of our battery.   Amps are calculated by watts ÷ volts.   ex:  60watts ÷ 3.7 volts = 16.2 amps.    Your battery has to be rated for more than that amount or it goes *boom*
    This is why your battery "shuts down" at 3.2 volts minimum because you can see that if your volts dropped to 2 volts,  at 60 watts you would be drawing 30 amps!   yeah,  *boom*
    A regulated mod is designed to keep the voltage constant as the battery discharges.  That keeps you safe and happy. 
    This is just a simple, practical explanation and is in no way intended to inform, insult, offend, challenge or disrespect any real electrical engineer.  No real engineers were harmed in this explanation.

    Still vaping the FLaN, but I find that I chain vape it too much because it's so smooth. The berry mixes are acidic, and with the higher salt nic, I find I can take a few draws and I'm good for awhile.
