I kept looking at the RTA parts and I kept wondering if it could be built as a BVC instead of a horizontal coil.
It didn't take me long, to figure it out and try it. And it WORKS!!! And it works really well!!!
The first thing you need is an extra jewelers screwdriver, since you are going to be using the supplied rod/screwdriver during the assembly. And you might need a small needle nose pliers.
You just need to bend the existing wire (or wrap your own) in the this shape.
One leg needs just needs to be bent along the side.
The other leg needs a slight dog leg to get it to be in the center.
Then slide the wire over the provided rod, with the center wire at the bottom.
Next, cut a 8mm wide strip of the cotton. Give it a single wrap, and wrap it tightly, around the coil.
Now take the upper hardware and slide it over the rod.
Make sure the leg of the wire goes through the proper hole, and stuff the cotton in and tighten the set screw.
Also, make sure that the cotton isn't covering the bottom of the coil.
Next you want to join the bottom hardware with the middle hardware (just push it in) to make a lower assembly.
Now slide the bottom leg of the coil into the center hole of the bottom assembly.
Screw the upper hardware onto the lower assembly, and tighten up the set screw.
Remove the rod, clip the wires, and put it in your Triton tank.
YOU ARE DONE!!!
You should notice that the rod helped line up the center of the coil with the hole in upper assembly.
After putting the coil in the tank, I let the juice sit for around 5 minutes. I am currently using a 20/80 (PG/VG) juice.
A couple of cold hits with both the air adjust slots closed just to make sure that the juice soaked into the cotton, just for good measure. Then it off to open the air slots and fire it up.
IT WORKS!!! And it works amazingly well!! Darn near equal to the pre-made from Aspire! I could get used to this, really quick!!
