I just don't seem to be able to get a good wick going on a nano coil. No matter what I do, I can't seem to beat a simple 5/6 wrap .5 ohm coil on a 3/32 bit center wicked with cotton. Not sure why I bother trying other things. I tried the dragon coil 5 times and it just doesn't wick well. I get burned cotton and crappy vapor.

Did a twisted coil .35 ohm... Good vape, not worth the extra wire and time

Did another twisted .72 ohm, slow burn but nothing special.

Come to grips with a simple micro with cotton pulled through or continue on experimenting?

You don't wanna put cotton thru the coil on a nano build. Position the nano at a 45 degree angle. Cover the bottom with cotton and wrap it around the coil leaving the top uncovered. Saturate cotton. This should cause vapor to shoot out the top.

Side note: a dragon coil is not actually a coil. Its a method of wicking.

I thought I was doing it right. I slipped the cotton under the coils and folded it back around the coils to kinda wrap the coil in cotton. I left the end open like a chimney but it doesn't seem to pull enough juice toward the coil. It sputters, makes a thin cloud and often burns the cotton.

Cotton too tight maybe?

Too much cotton maybe?

I dunno but I'm certainly missing something. Are they always this fickle to get right? A micro coil with cotton pulled through just seems to work no matter what ya do.

Okay my son grabbed my phone and hit a lot of buttons.

The second photos are of my husbands single coil that I wicked like a bow. His third post is missing (have another one coming). When I wick single and dual coils I don't put any cotton under the coil itself (something I learned from a more experienced vaper)

And my current setup. This one I use two pieces of cotton for.

I have played around with different wicking styles and have found that the two I have now (hubby's and mine) are the ones that work best for us. Not too loose, not to right, and making sure plenty of air can get to it!

Iv tried nanos, as well as others, but I always come back to a good 26 gauge dual coil at about .35ohm, cotton wick.

I have tried several different coils. I stopped building the extravagant ones after the Clapton and am now back to using just 28ga. 2mm dual coils at around 0.8 ohms.
