Video Transcript: Tutorial: Mods and Rebuildable Atomizers by Henley Vape
Hey, my name is Tristan Ambat. I'm here at Henley Vaporium, here to talk to you guys about battery safety, building coils, and mechanical mods, and regulated mods. What we're gonna start off with right now is the most important part, which is battery safety and mechanical mods.
The three batteries that I always recommend that anyone get is the Sony VTC4 battery which comes in at 30 amps, The EH 1600 mah 18650, which also comes in 30 amps, and the AW 1600 mah 24 amp battery. It's very important that these amps are at that level, because the lower that you go in your ohms, the more amps you're pulling off your battery. With ohms, that is measuring your resistance. The lower you go in your resistance, the better flavor you get, the better vapor you get, the better heat you get, giving you a more dense vape to make your vaping experience much better.
Next, I wanna go with the equipment that you'll be using. This right here is called a rebuildable atomizer. This is the top part right here. On a rebuildable atomizer what you will see is usually two to three posts that you will be building on and inserting your coils into. Next, you're looking at your mods. The word mod comes from when people used to modify their own e-cigarettes by using flashlights to give them more power and just a better vape experience. There are two kinds of mods. There are the regulated mods and the mechanical mods. What a regulated mod is, is basically a regulated current going towards your atomizer, making it so that there is no voltage drop, no loss of power, and you can actually control your settings, giving you better heat, better vapor production, whatever you're liking may be.
A mechanical mod is basically just a tube with two contacts and a button to complete that electrical circuit with the battery inside. The main difference is, with a mechanical mod there's no regulation. So as the power goes up to your atomizer, as the battery dies, you're getting less and less of that power. Now this is really important because, say, your battery is getting too low, it's getting to a dangerous level. On a regulated mod there's a cut-off for that so that it will stop vaping at a certain point that the battery's getting too low. On a mechanical mod, since there is no circuitry, there's no cut-off at all. So you can just keep going and going and not know when to stop. Two of, actually, the giveaways is less flavor, less vapor production, and also your button getting hot.
So the reason your switch is heating up is because you're over-discharging your battery at a dangerous rate, heating up the battery and stressing it out to the point that it may explode. At that point you want to change your battery and make sure that you have a fully-charged battery so that nothing bad happens.
So now I'm gonna show you guys how to rebuild the coil in your rebuildable atomizer. So first thing you wanna do is take off the cap. Take your tool, whether it be an Allen key or a screwdriver depends completely on your rebuildable atomizer. Take out the screws. Take out your coil. Throw that to the side. Today we're gonna be using 28-gauge Kanthal wire and a cotton wick. Keep in mind that the lower the gauge of your Kanthal wire, the lower the ohms are going to turn out. So what you're gonna want to do next is take a small screwdriver, put your wire on it, and start wrapping.
You wanna make sure that each coil is touching.
Next, you wanna snip the wire, make sure one piece of wire is longer than the other. Next, you wanna insert your coil. Screw down these screws. Set your wire catches under the screws. What you wanna make sure is that your coil is not touching either the negative or the positive post otherwise it will short. You also wanna make sure that your coil isn't touching the outer rim right here, or even the base. Otherwise it will short that way too. So next thing you wanna do is clip the back leads. Check your ohms. I'm doing a 1.56-ohm coil. That way I can use it safely on my regulated mod. I've built it in at 1.56 ohms; that way I can safely use it on my regulated mod.
Next, you wanna take your atomizer off. Put it onto your mod. Next, you wanna pulse your coil until it turns nice and red. That way we can easily squeeze the coils together so they're touching.
Until it glows from the inside out, that way the heat is evenly distributed. Next, you wanna take 100% organic cotton. You wanna make sure it's 100% organic cotton not 100% cotton. 100% cotton is usually bleached white and is usually used with pesticides in fields to keep bugs away. Organic cotton is just straight cotton and nothing else added to it. So you wanna take one organic cotton ball, you wanna take your organic cotton ball rip off a small piece of cotton, and just roll it into a wick. Next you wanna take it and wick it right through. Take some scissors. Just clip your cotton. Put that in there. Then with your juice, make sure the cotton is nice and saturated. Make sure it's firing. When you put your cap back on, make sure your air hole is lined up with your coil. You wanna make sure that your wick is nice and wet otherwise, this will happen and you don't want that.
When making your own coil, what you would want to be very careful of is that the coil itself does not touch the negative or positive post as well as the base. Otherwise you'll end up shorting out the atomizer and shorting out your battery, causing it to explode.
