Rebuild Materials
Atomizer looks great. Really glad fasttech is moving in this direction. Great work Fasttech!

When will you be stocking rebuild materials?

1. Kanthal wire / Nichrome / Heating wire
2. You have started stocking wick 2mm. We would still like 1mm and 3mm. Also stainless steel mesh
3. Ceramic cups for the oddy
4. Maybe a few different tank options, e.g. Pyrex or Stainless for these and the cobra's etc.

Nr 4. I will admit would be a nice to have, but less required than the other 3.

ok gang, I am with you on this one. I am looking for the non-resistant wire also. Pretty much have everything else. Also bought the Ithaca which is somewhat simular.

Hayden and Vaporini...Guys you don't really need to buy the NR wires...it's available in abundance around us, use any of those thin red or black plastic coated wires from your old electrical units, like old calling bells or circuits or even some old wiring thrown away in the garage... these are about 2-3 mm thick with the plastic/rubber coating, slice it open with a knife and pull out a single strand from the bunch, the strands are of the same thickness as the Res wire sent as spares with this item..the NRs are typically copper or silver in color.

I rebuilt my own very first NR-R-NR coil, pre tested the Res before building at about 1.2ohms and it stayed at that, even after completion. Vapes like a dream, I tried using the coil it came with, it was heating up the entire oddy in my hand, also it tested at around 2.8ohms, since am using a mech without a kick, it had to be re-built to reach 10watts...also that previous heating up was eliminated.

This device is simply brilliant, had I not ordered the ithaka, I would have by now ordered a second one of these. Let's see what the Ithaka holds in store, as mine is still in transit.. :)

is this wire reusable, btw ?

if you have a piece of non-resistance wire, e.g. from the original ithaka coil...
could you reuse the wire(s), when the coil is finished ?

e.g. cut the non-resistance off and twist it on a normal ni-chrome wire ?
or reuse even the whole NR-R-NR wires ?

or do they get bad/weak over time ?

do they have NR wire at fasttech (rolls) ?

a youtube on
how to make a R-NR-wire for ceramic atomizers...

he uses kanthal or nickel-chrome
and a non-resistant(?) silver wire

its in german. first he talks about another method from some navy.
he will show an easier one, with a smaller "connection-point".

his method (from 01:40)
1) wrap silver wire 4-5 times around the kanthal, very tight
2) then bend end of kanthal to the kanthal side of the two wires
3) cut away the small piece of the silver wire
4) adjust kanthal
5) press connection tight
--- only a "small connection"

Fasttech please offer ceramic rods that we can use as a wick instead of silica.
