The “Ithaka’s Update” is a set of parts that replace the whole ceramic assembly and mouthpiece of the original Ithaka. It allows the use of only resistive wire in the Ithaka (wire without resistance is not required).
It features a two terminal posts system at top, to fix the ends of the resistive wire (coil), and two slots for wick placement (unlike the old rebuildable assembly that counts with four channels), making the use of micro coils and the use of cotton as wick (which is one of the most popular configurations), even easier.
The Ithaka update set or “Ithaka’s Upgrade” was offered as a complementary set for existing Ithakas. Later the Ithakas were offered with the new update included.
