ViVi Nova V2 rebuild - which wire?
Which would be the best gauge wire to buy from cloud9vaping in order to produce an atty head with a resistance of around 1.8 - 2.0 Ohms using around 4 turns?

http://www.cloud9vaping.co.uk/epages/yxv...s/DIY-WIRE

I'm thinking the 0.2mm gauge, but just wanted to see if anyone has any experience with them first.

Can anyone advise?

Thanks.

If you look up Terry0769, he does wire here. I use 4 turns 0.15 nichrome and that gives me 2 ohms. But dont forget to fold the tails back otherwise they tails will get hot.

Is that on a Nova atty head? And, please excuse my ignorance, but 'tails'?

Tails or legs are the ends off each side of the coil that connect to the base the outside one on the vivi is - and the inside one is +

I think it is a Nova atty head and the tails are connections to the connector.

Ok, I thought as much, but I thought I just pull them straight and trim them? How do I fold them back?

There are loads of ways to do it. What I do, when I have wound the coil round the wick, I pull the wires straight and then fold the tails in the middle and with my thumb and finger, hold the end against the coil and with my other hand, start twisting. When the wire is twisted, snip off the loose end or wrap what is left around the wick. Its a bit fiddly, but it means that the tails will not glow and the rubber bung does not get burnt.
