    Kanger Subtank Mini

    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.

    Kanger Subtank Mini

    5 wraps with a 3mm id should give you about .3 ohms 4 wraps should be about .25. I find that my best coils are between 5 and 7 wraps. I assume you are using the RBA that came with your subtank mini, so you should be able to get 7 wraps to fit. Experiment a little, and see whats best for you.
  3. The protank (full size) works great on a subvod battery, but it is non adjustable unlike the twist was. The battery alone can be bought at heavens gifts for about $12.00. Hope that helps.

    Kanger Subtank Mini

    4/5 wraps of 22g 316 will give you about .15 ohms. I use 6 wraps of 28g 316 and get .7 ohms. Nice thing about ss316 is you can use it in TC or watts. I have found watts is better for coil killing juice, but that's just my opinion.

    Emergency coil construction

    I believe the .9 measurement was probably wrong. To get .9 ohms using 22g 304 you would need to do 30 wraps using a 3mm id even using a 5mm id you would need 20 wraps. (that is according to steam) If you checked the resistance using a multimeter you would have to subtract the resistance of the leads, which can vary depending on the quality, and the length of the leads. If nothing else use the wire out of a twisty tie, just strip the plastic off of it.(seen that in another post)

    What Are You Vaping Today?

    I use vanilla custard mixed with blood orange with a little pineapple, and bavarian creme mixed in.

    What Are You Vaping Today?

    I have been using French Vanilla in my mixes, I figure using the Madagascar vanilla would be much better.

    What Are You Vaping Today?

    Mad scientist concoctions are the best. I make a cherry cheesecake, pretty good stuff. A few weeks ago I got some new flavors that I haven't tried yet, I have been using TFA caramel, but read a lot of good things on the net about salted caramel by FW, also got some Madagascar vanilla, and some sweetener. Going to have to try them soon.

    Vape pen issues

    The ones I had did have air holes in the very bottom, but I guess different brands have different designs. I tried cleaning the ones I had with rubbing alcohol, and it did help for awhile, but went bad again. About the only thing you can do is get a different setup that uses a fire button instead of depending on air flow to fire it. Don't know about the one you have, but mine had a hole through the middle of the contact pin for the air to flow, that's how juice got into the electronics.

    Vape pen issues

    I think I know what the problem might be. Years ago I tried a few of the automatic ego type batteries, when air is drawn through the battery it activates a switch (notice the air holes in the bottom of the battery), Over time the design allows juice to leak into the battery, which causes the switch to act erratic. It happened to me, and I would guess the same thing has happened to the poster.
  11. From what I have read on reddit, and other places there will be a 25% tariff on vape mods from China. I will not be affected by it, I currently use 9 mods in rotation and like a lot of other people here have several more mods and tanks still unopened in boxes. I make my own coils, and juice. My LG H2 batteries come from South Korea, so the price of those won't change unless they are in short supply. Maybe some company in SK might start making mods, mods are already made in the Philippines, and a few other places that have no tariffs. When a market gets hurt in one place it picks up elsewhere, supply and demand works that way.

    The only reason I can see for a mod maker to recommend using a certain brand of battery is probably the same reason Chevy recommends using a Delco battery and Ford recommends using a Motorcraft, there is probably some kind of Corporate connection. I use mostly Kanger mods, and the instructions say to use a suitable 18650 30A battery, I use LG HG2 batteries that are rated at 20A, continuous. Kanger doesn't say 30A continuous or pulse. (I haven't blown myself up yet) The brand of battery doesn't matter as much as the quality of the battery, Samsung, LG, and Sony all make quality batteries.

    Batteries not working

    You didn't say what kind of mods they are. Most mods need to be turned on, usually by 3 to 5 fast presses on the power button depending on who made the mod. I would guess they don't work because they aren't turned on. It's also possible the battery is upside down, try turning the battery around.
  14. I have read a few reviews on that tank, and the the only complaint seems to be the price of the coils, and the fact that they don't last very long. You could switch to a different tank that uses cheaper coils that last longer, everybody here seems to have a different choice as far as tanks go. Personally I prefer the Subtank mini, but others prefer other tanks. The Subtank mini only holds 4.5 ml compared to what you have that holds 8ml, but that may mean you won't ruin as much juice when you burn a coil. I mostly use a RBA but have used factory coils that cost about $3 each depending on where you buy them (I have bought them as cheap as .85 each when buying them in bulk), and I have had them last a week or more. You will probably not get as much vapor as you get with the Smok tank, but that also is a matter of choice to most people.
