Rebuilding Evod Heads
I'm in a massive conundrum. I love my Evod for out and about, and it was about time I rebuilt the head.

First time went fine.

However, tonight I've made about ten coils , and each time I've attached the head to my ego battery, the button just flashes. In theory it shouldn't be shorting, I've put the rubber part with one wire through it, then put in the metal pin, trimmed the wires and yet still no luck.

Please tell me someone else has had this problem and I'm not the only one. I can rebuild CE4/Nova/Igo-L in the blink of an eye, but this has me so frustrated! Mad

Rebuilding Evod Heads
Had the same problem. The issue is caused by the legs of the wires that run down into the base touching either side of the metal base (just below where the wick sits in the slot) and causing a short.

Take a pin and just nudge both outer coils in a touch, this should solve it.

So the wires have to pass through the hole without touching the metal you thread them through at all?

I'm assuming you're doing this after watching Pete's tutorial?

If not, here's the link Smiling

That's the one. Not as difficult as it sounds.

RE: Rebuilding Evod Heads
1 leg should be inside the rubber and the other on the outside. Only 1 should touch the side on the atty and make sure the actual coil itself isnt touching the sides.

RE: Rebuilding Evod Heads
This is bullshit, I follow the guide perfectly and it still shorts. I don't know what is going on.

I've made sure the coil isn't touching the sides using a pin, neither are the wires. I feed one through the rubber grommet, bend it round, then put the pin in.

I really don't understand at all.

What gauge wire are you using, how many wraps and silica thickness? The ohms may be too low?

RE: Rebuilding Evod Heads
What ohms are you getting? Izzy is right, we need to know wire gauge, silica thickness etc. Have you tried using a different battery? I had an old ego pass through battery that just seemed to have a problem with rebuilt evod heads, don't know why, I just slung it in the end.

RE: Rebuilding Evod Heads
Have to agree with the guys Steve, if built correctly as you say it must be down to ohms or battery, have you wound enough turns on the coil, imho .2mm Kanthal is great for Evods....Smiling Tata for now, Decks.
