    Hi everyone.

    I am Missioner. Based in the far end of the East Rand.

    Not new to vaping, but new to trying new things with my dropper and RTA.

    Looking forward to meeting up with new folks and learning more about my one vice.

    Shot for warm welcome.

    I am a mechanic by profession so if you have motoring related stuff send it my way.

    As for the reason for joining, I have bought new coils for my RTA and have been battling to get them to not roast cotton and produce vapour.

    Online searches seem to indicate that I may have been firing them way too hot, so I will rewick for the 3rd time and try again.

    Welcome @Missioner could you maybe give some more information as to how the cotton is being roasted like @Paul33 mentioned maybe start by giving info regarding your setup.

    These are my 2 most used mods. The Genie is a very underrated mod and still gives multi day battery life. Please excuse my dirty hands.

    I also have a Voopoo Drag 2 which I don't really enjoy using. It doesn't fit my hand very well.

    I think I have managed to get the problem somewhat solved with the tank and coil setup. I wicked the RTA again and slowly turned up the Watts till it started to work without burning. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I note that you have it on hard setting, this will ramp it up initially and possibly cause that burnt taste.

    Part of the issue I think is that I have pretty much stuck to my first tank and coil set, it has worked nearly flawlessly for the last 2 years. The cotton lasted well and it made good flavour and dense clouds.

    This is a new tank and coil set that I have bought recently, I was having trouble working out the kinks.

    Coil looks good to me, I note 0.22.

    The next things we can possibly look at is your juice mix. If your PG content is too low for that sub ohm coil, that could also combined with the hard setting cause an initial burnt taste.

    Hi @Missioner. And welcome to the forum :)

    I agree with Stranger's comments here. If you put it on 'hard' it will ramp up very quickly versus normal, so it is for a quick, sharp inhale and not a drawn out smooth inhale. I see you did mention you adjusted it, which should already help out a lot.

    As you are using coils measuring 0.22Ohm, 70W should be sufficient, however just to note that I am using a dual coil setup at 0.2Ohm and I vape at 95W, so you can ramp that up even a bit more if you like; if however you are using a single coil setup, then rather stick to 70W. If you want more vapour, and you're willing to spend a bit of money, then maybe look at getting a dual coil tank - just note that you may have to get other coils as well because if a single pushes 0.22Ohm, you're going to get 0.11Ohm on a dual and then we're talking serious wattage (and juice usage!).

    FYI the Dead Rabbit is a dual setup.

    The coils are 0.35ohm each.

    On my previous coils I was vaping at 90W happily.

    This is an entirely new set including the tank.

    I have a V1 tank that I have had since starting vaping and was very happy.

    Since I can't stay in one place for too long I wanted to try something new and got some new goodies to see if the grass is greener. Anyway getting the new stuff to work the same as the old set has been a mission.

    So I seem to be getting it right. I am grateful for your suggestions and guidance.
