    I spent the last nearly two hours browsing Google to find the answer, but nothing comes close to what I need an answer to.

    What I found now while vaping is that I take long hard pulls. So @Moerse Rooikat explained to me this weekend that I am not giving the wick enough time to re saturate. The other problem is when I sit infront of the laptop busy working I'm vaping quickly after each other. Now I'm getting that jiggy burned taste very quickly. I don't want to rewick every hour or two hours.

    I've set the wattage to 25 and the ohm on the coil is sitting at 0.37. But at 25 I'm not getting the flavour I want. I actually barely taste anything. I don't like it when the vape is to hot. Medium to cool is fine. But I want flavor. Will it help with DIY to up the concentrate %'s?

    Any advice please?

    Are you building your own coils @Braki ?

    Its a tricky one coz you like the flav at a higher temp, and Id say the only thing you could try is lower temps.

    Other suggestion would be play around with different coils at different watts.

    just wen u rewick just thin your wig out same more. on the obs and the kylin mine you can do this more as the tanks don't leak.
    have a look at your wick open the tank up and give the wick a sleight pull if it comes out it is broken in the middle
    you can also go thinner with your wick the part u stick into the coil.
    each tank has its own sweet spot you need to find it
    you can set your mod to soft hard and norm mode try stetting it to soft

    I would think then it all boils down to wicking.

    You shouldn't need to up your flavour concentrate or drop your wattage so low. I have no experience with the Ammit so can't advise, I think @zadiac or @Alex know how to wick an Ammit IIRC?

    Alternatively do a search on Youtube.

    im sorry to ask in your thread @Braki but according to what @Moerse Rooikat said...does it mean that less wick or thinner wick allows more flavour and lesser clouds and vice versa?

    no it only gives the wick time to suck juice up so it can perform at its best giving you more flavor and cloud

    You could also try experimenting with different PG/VG ratios. PG is thinner and should wick a bit quicker.

    Out of the box response:
    Although it may not be an option try getting into dripping when you are vaping at the desk. Since I've started vaping indoors, I've really started enjoying dripping and working. It only takes 5 seconds to drip, take a couple of hits, and yours eyes barely leave the screen.

    A good sized RDTA could give you tremendous balance the convenience of RTA and the wicking of RDA.

    Obviously this latter response is not everyone's preference but do give it some thought

    I just received the Kylin Mini. So going to put in a coil and wick her and see what happens. At least I dont have to walk around with a tissue the whole time.

    With my next back I'm going to make one juice 50/50 and see what it does. Maybe thats the trick for now.

    Hi @Braki, if you can post a good close up pic of your coil/wick for the Ammit I might be able to give you some pointers. I have the Ammit 22 and the 25. And they are both excellent for flavour.

    Ok I jacked it up to 36w now. It seems much better. Going to try it on the Ammit. Just need to rewick it. I'm enjoying the mini so much I just cant get myself to take it off the Pico.

    I love both. I get a better flavour on fruity with the ammit for some reason and deserts is better in the kylin for me. Dont know maybe its just me and my imagination

    Rewicked the Ammit. Sorry if the photos is bad. My phone doesn't want to work with me. The coil is about a week old. And still looks fine.

    If your mod can do power curves I’d suggest using that feature. Say for example you like to vape long and hard on 100 Watts: Set the first second of the curve to 100, the second to about 60-80 Watts, the third to 100 etc. That way it kind of pulses the coil giving you a warmer vape than straight 25, but also not burning through your remaining ejuice on the coil and wick hence you could chain vape for a little longer without having to let the coil saturate often.
