No real trick to wicking jus make sure you don't overstuff it and you should be fine. I've got the mini, great tank. Doggystyle killer for me, @MDC Wink

What wattage would you suggest im getting a burning taste at the moment on 17watts so i brought it down to 16watts.

You might have over-wicked it then mate as I run mine between 20-25 watts

Ok thanks for letting me know that yeah i reacon it did over wick it.

RE: How do i coil and wick the berserker tank
I opened it up the coil was well burnt up so i used the wire i had like anditweighsaton said to make another coil now im starting on low wattage.

After bringing up the wattage from 12 watts im at 18 watts i had a slight burn taste at 19 watts so i think im ok at 18 watts.

RE: How do i coil and wick the berserker tank
I dont know whats happened after making a second coil because im only managing 16watt anything above that and im getting the burning taste.So i rewicked and same thing happened so i made another coil and i still cant go above 16watt.

am i over stuffing the cotton and does that mean over stuffing into the channels or the coil.

Could be either. Use less cotton or try Scottish Roll wicking?

Ok Mdc cheers the scottish roll i do make sure its just enough but loose enough in the coil so it must be the channels.My first one was just enough cotton in there and that seemed to be fine.But these last two yeah i have been stuffing more into the channels.maybe racking it too b4 i stuff it in there.

Ill try the scottish roll first im getting that slight burning taste even on 16watt and i was at 18watt on my first one that tasted good.

I used less cotton i snipped the ends so that it tucked in the channels instead of stuffing it in there.Im now up at 22watt no burning but i think im getting what they call dry hits i do taste it but theres no smoke.

RE: How do i coil and wick the berserker tank
I tested a good dozen of different coils with the Berserker. My best coils are all made with 0.3 mm Kanthal wire.
Best coil overall IMO, is made of 0.3 mm wire, 7 spaced turns, 2.5 mm coil diameter.
It is so efficient starts vaping at 8 Watts.
Distance from air hole is 2 mm (this is important).
Eliquid strength is 6 mg/ml, 50 / 50 PG/VG.
Power is 8 to 15 W.
Wick is Cotton Bacon 2 or Cellucotton.
Above 15 W, must increase diameter to 3 mm and only use Cellucotton.
This is not a guide, just my experience.
