Sorry mate but there's info all over this thread and others that silver wire is a PAI to weld, my advice is use Nickel
Ok, 3 months later: this welding thing is killing me, for each weld which keeps the NICKEL wire on kanthal it takes me tens of trys (literally, today i was bothering for 30 minutes and still one wire fell off) and even then there is no guarantee that the weld will last when i put it on ithaka (which is failed in design, anyone talking about how genesis type of atomizers are PITA to set up, this is far worse, in 3 months i was able to put together genesis at any time with consistant results, while this one is each time an adventure). I cant remember a single coil where i wasnt swearing and luckly i have my genesis, so i had a backup when i wasnt able to put together a freaking coil as i would be without the ecig untill the next day afternoon... I bought the zapper as i hoped it will be easyer to do it then knotting the freaking wires together, but it is the same $#&"$&#$&... i am frustrated...
Is there any procedure to provide the consistant results with welding, I must be missing something!??
(i have tryed to burn/not burn the wires before welding, bruteforcing the times from 1-10 seconds, changing which wire is on which contact, used silver wire and nickel wire, used three types of kanthal, cleaned the weld spots with alcohol)
I have no problems with mine, it is a rare occasion when a weld doesn't take. When that happens I just zap it on the coil. Keep in mind though that it's just a spot weld and they are brittle, twisting the join when wrapping a coil can easily weaken it.
Just a warning to customers... A Chinese company are about to start producing + selling copies of my Zapper V2, if you see them on sale anywhere else you should know that they will be copies and are not my products. Zapper V2 is only on sale at my website and no others.
I have only recently purchased a Zapper V2 from you about a week ago and received very quickly thank you.
I am having problems with the Zapper though, I have built around six coils using it and now the right red button that increases the power will not function, it just stays at zero. I have tried replacing the batteries but still nothing. It was working fine, then I noticed that the power up button would increase the power while pressing it, but when released the display went to zero. Soon after the power up button would not work at all.
I cant think of anything else to make it work, any suggestions?
