There’s nothing I like better than a new mod, so when I received my Wanko, I whipped it out and started playing with it straight away screwing it tightly on top of my Owl Mod.
It felt good in my hand and uses a fuseslot type coil, like a fuse in a plug which doesn’t need screws. The first coil I tried was the 1 Ohm KA1 Wave which was very good, however when I used it on a mechanical mod it took a fair old time to heat up.
Next I tried the 0.6 SS316L wave coil, which literally took a few seconds to change due to the postless slot system. I then re-wicked and had a puff again, using it on a mechanical mod; and again, took a fair time to ramp up, almost two seconds.
So onto the third coil, which was the lowest of the Ohms at 0.35, this is actually my preference, a Clapton coil. I am sure you know what I am going to say - yes you’re right it took a bit of time to ramp up, almost killing my hit.
Then I tried all three coils on a regulated mod (an older Sigelei 100W) this time running at a higher wattage it was far quicker to heat, about one second maximum, the only problem there was I had got the atomizer to use with my Owl Mod.
After trying out all the different coils supplied, I then decided to try making a few of my own, using 20 AWG Kanthal wire, slipping the fuse end caps over the ends of the wire, then simply slotting it into place. This, in my opinion worked better than the factory made coils.
Although I had reduced the ramp up time on my Owl Mod to about one second, this was still not quite cutting it for me - I then noticed you could build straight onto the deck which was almost as simple as slotting in the fuse coils.
All you have to do is remove the fuse slots via the little screws and replace them with slightly wider screws which are supplied with the Wanko. Trap each end of the wire under a screw to create a complete circuit. This performed so much better, with a very quick ramp up and it also gives you room to build whatever coil you want. I have also added a glass drip tip to help cool the vape a little. I am now getting my Wanko out on a regular basis. I would say it’s definitely my go-to dripper at the moment!
