Been quite awhile since I’ve posted anything on these here forums but I watch and read from time to time still. For Xmas, I got a brandy new Reuleaux Gen 3, 2 battery mod and a Kylin Tank. Love them both as long as I’m vaping in power mode. But, I want to try vaping with either SS316 or Ni80 in TC mode. Not a big deal I’m sure but I cannot seem to get this right. I build the coils (I’ve tried spaced and tight, single and dual coils) to varying degrees of resistance (.2ohms to .45ohms) but every time I try to fire the mod, it kicks right back to power mode @ 20 watts. Read a bunch of things online from other sites and tried everything they suggested to no avail. I figure its time to come where I should have come to from the beginning… where the real pros are hehe. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in Advance.
Everything is tight on the tank. I check and double check because Im a touch OCD hehe. Ive also tried spaced coils and even make sure the resistance is locked due to floating. Did not know about the Ni80 though so there goes that roll of wire so thanks for that tip.
I’d like to add, check the threshold, not that I think it applies in your case but I’ll mention it.
From the wismec site
Resistance Range: 0.05-1.5ohm for TC modes
0.1-3.5ohm for VW mode
Some mods just won’t fire if it’s above/below, others give you a warning, but then there’s mods that kick you out of tc if it’s above/below that. Power/wattage mode have different requirements and that’s why you still could vape it in that, if that applies here.
Mostly overlooked but in some cases the problem, hence I mention it lol
As said above…if building a plain round wire coil…use just SS …Titanium or nickle such as n200…now if u use a clapton or anuy type of exotic…the core has to be one of the above wires…it can be wrapped in N80 but the core needs to be a TC wire…also some mods will limit you the watts you can use in Tc …like 80 watts…not sure what u tried or what that mod is limited to…I vape TC 90% of the time…try some round SS wire…set the watts to like 50 watts just to see if it keeps u in TC mode…temp at 420-459…if u remain in TC ,increase watts like 5 watts at a time to see where it kicks u out…
Ok so I think I made a little progress here… rebuilt everything once again. Used 28g SS316L triple twisted. Resistance is locked at .15 ohms. Made sure everything that could be tightened was and double checked as I always do. Now when I fire it, it starts to fire then displays “Protect”. Now to my understanding, this is because its reached the desired temp and shuts down to prevent overheating. Problem is, its not heating up past a split second.
I didn’t see it mentioned so here’s yet another idea to check. I’m not familiar with the RX GEN3, but if it allows you to customize the TCR parameters beyond what the factory 316L settings are, then there are at least 3 known to work with that wire:
Play around with those if you can. Good luck!
