So, been waiting for M-vapes to get new stock in of their Kayfun Lite Plus v2 and now they have stock I took the plunge and bought one
Been looking at a couple of coiling vids to get me going but any tips from you Kayfun lovers/experts would be much appreciated.
I use mainly Protanks and Aerotanks (no mech mods (yet), just VV/VW devices) and recoil my heads at roughly 2ohm so can coil fine, but I only have .25mm Kanthal at the moment, any suggestions on changing to a different gauge? Was thinking maybe to get some .28mm.
Also washing and cleaning. I normally just wash my tanks in warm soapy water and stick in a denture tablet solution overnight, can I do this for a Kayfun? Also I am thinking of buying an ultrasonic cleaner in the future when I can find one at a decent price.
I also use (and have loads of) organic cotton wool for rewicking my heads, any suggestions on wicking would also be much appreciated.
Bought it mainly to sit on my new Focal Hana clone so can't wait for when it comes
If you are happy with your coiling abilities I wouldn't change anything as yet, try your usual build and see if it's different in the kayfun and to your liking, just tweak the wattage a bit first before making changes. Also don't read up too much on them unless you hit a snag. There are so many threads and vids about kayfun build problems but my motto is keep it simple and utilise what you already know, your coils are fine as you said. By all means experiment, I've just tried a twisted coil in mine but to be honest it's not massively different in my opinion. My main worry whilst mine was on the not so slow boat was the filling techniques people mention, even down to using a chopstick in one vid I watched. I just filled mine the recommended way through the fill hole and it works perfectly fine.
Ps no need to blow torch, I never have , never will. I use my mod to hear coils then use tweezers to compress.
After watching some other videos and the advice i've taken on board I wasn't planning to use the blowtorch to be honest, i've noticed it's not needed with Kayfuns etc and I find it a bit of a faff but understand it should be done on the microcoiled kanger heads.
My first kayfun build was with 0.25 and it was simply no comparison to anything else I'd tried! Pure bliss
What you may find as you grow to be comfortable with it is that you'll be tinkering with your coil resistances a fair bit. I coil mine at anywhere between 0.7-3.1ohms depending on the juice..
What I will say though is if you do go straight into microcoils, my main points would be to run the coil diagonally across the deck, and don't choke the channels.. You don't need masses of wick for it to work properly, too much cotton will prevent the juice from flowing properly and ruin the experience with a dry hit.
Only other thing to be wary of is that the filling process either makes or breaks you.. Take your time and don't stress out if it leaks.. They are a steep learning curve to begin with but you'll have it down in no time!
I use this ultrasonic cleaner and it's quite simply brilliant. Your method will work fine in the meantime though. Just strip the kayfun right down (including the centre post) and go from there.
Kayfuns are much easier to build than kanger heads. I used the method in the video @purple1234 posted for my 1st few builds, and it worked great. Now I use twisted .28 and use the diagonal method where the wick comes down at one end of the deck and runs across to the other side. That's the good thing with these, you can try out lots of builds and mostly they all work great.
You are going to love it cHooBeyDoo, i have had mine from Matt at Mvapes for a couple of months now and once you get it right you will know, oh boy you will know, everyone is right get the right amount of cotton and it will be one of the best vapes you have experienced, well that is my experience of the kayfun but i now have a rose clone to try and my Squape R is on order Nom Nom Nom
