So it was 23:45 and shock/horror, I tasted burnt cotton. My zeus was coiled and wicked by a store last Wednesday and it was time for a new one. I opened the atty and the cotton had essentially burnt through in the middle. The middle wrap on the coil was VERY dark, so I proceeded to wipe and brush the coil, then started to pulse at 20w... still dark in the middle. Strum and pinch, rinse and repeat... got to the point of the attached image (is this okay?) Then wicked the atty as per the pictures. Primed it and vaped it a while. No dry hits so far and I see bubbles in the tank. Can you guys please have a look at the images and let me know if this looks a decent job? I did neaten up the wick in the ports a little after taking the pictures.
