    I had an issue with a Ti kiss. When I unscrewed the mouthpiece (cold), the ceramic cup stuck to the mp and pulled out with the wires. At first i freaked out, but I was able to put it back together. It was a lot like fixing the charger for the Omicron v1. I like the way the center contact and the white rubbery insulator hold it all together.

    so then i cleaned and disassembled my burned out kiss carts. In those, the wires look welded, and in the Ti they are crimped together.


    i would love to be able to fix these. the ceramic wick crumbled on the oldest but the rest are intact.
    Does anyone have any info on wires and wicks for this kind of thing? (Perhaps a link to a DIY thread)

    ok, i'll look through his videos, but i think all i need is wire and wick and a way to connect resistance wire with non resistance wire.

    and my new Ohm meter, to match the resistance.

    IIRC W9 had a hell of a time getting that grade 2 titanium wire to work like that, and a big part of the issue was manufacturing (standard soldering techniques dont work apparently).

    While the older non titanium versions were rebuildable, IDK about the Ti wire on these new ones.

    I think you might want to use a wick that doesn't conduct electricity.

    The SS mesh must be oxydized first, so it doens't conduct electricity, this is the Genesis system of the e-cigs.

    Yep that's what I was waiting for, I know G said it was "easy" but now that I have seen it demonstrated I can see for myself it is an accurate statement. Going to scoop a couple Okeanos with those KISS carts in 501 threading so I can use them on various VV mods, as 3.7V cart will work perfectly on them and be more discreet and a simpler package.

    thanks for the video

    so the resistance wire press against the insulating rubber. Will that damage it and/or short out? OEM has a connection of resistance and non-resistance (where one of mine broke) under the cup.
