How to Rebuild a Silica RBA

This week, Cody took a look at how to rebuild a silica wick using an IGO-L as an example. These ‘dripping’ rebuildable atomizers make for a fantastic vape with the flavor definition you may know from higher end standard, low resistance or bridgeless atomizers.

What did you think of Cody’s guide? Have you done this process yourself before, if so, what were the results? Let us know the in the comments beelllooww!

      Thanks for the post. I remember being intimidated the 1st time and now it’s an addiction to rebuild!

        Nice tutorial. Dripping RBAs are the way to go for sure, especially with NETs!

          I haven’t used the dripping atomizers for NETs, but I will be now for sure.

            Thank you for sharing. I always enjoy watching these videos although I just use clearos for now.

                    Good tutorial. I’ve been doing this myself for sometime now.

                      So glad you posted this. I have an Igo L and had been having some issues with building the coil. I wasn;t folding the wick over 3 times like you so it wasn’t working well. I will try it like this next. Seems like it definitely will work better your way.

                          great tutorial. I never tried such a low ohm with a silica wick. I think I might have to go try that tonight. Thanks

                                  I like the fact you did this with a Igo-L instead of some high end device. Listen people, you can get a GREAT vape from a cheaper gennie. In fact, you can get a DAMN good vape from it, especially if you learn how to mod the air hole and wick hole. I have 2 did clones, a aga-t, a agat plus, a hydra, a oddity, a nautilus, a line clone, a wyvern/rainbow, a vision eternity and a phoenix and all of them (except the line clone and the eternity is a little too cool for my taste due to the distance from coil to mouth) perform amazing. They perform almost as well as my Hybrid devices. Dont let the price fool you, if you re thinking about rebuildable, try one of these first, Seriously. Good review
