Just a quick update and a big thank you to all that responded (even those members that didn’t respond, but previously posted comments or questions over the years).
I purchased a GeekVape Ammit 22mm RTA, and made my first build last night. All went pretty well, but had a minor leaking issue that i blame on poor wicking. (I think i cut the cotton across the grain,rather than with it…I blame my third glass of pinot noir during the build for that). After rewicking, no more leaking, and a very nice vape ensued that continues this evening. I’m sorry to say i don’t have a good foundation for comparison, as i only had my stock Veco tank and EUC coils prior. Certainly better flavor and better vapor production that that. I’m quite happy.
Based on suggestions here, i started simply with a single stainless wire @ 26ga, which measured .46 ohms. This appears to be a good starting point,and gives me a baseline to play from here. Lots to experiment with over time, so the journey begins.
Again, Thanks everybody for helping an old noob out.
