Good Grief!!!

for comparison...
I'm only using Aerotanks, set for maximum air MOTT.
70Vg/30 then let down with flavour conc. and alcohol, <10%

8-15w an Vamo and max with a 15w kick on the mechs.

Needed my first new coil yesterday since September or October.

I've occasionally swapped out the coils for new ones, temporarily, to see if flavour has deteriorated, then swapped back.

On my Nero_Fireplace, Yocan 94Fs and Cloutank_M4 I'm still on the original coils though I DID swap out the 94F double coil for a stovetop ASAP


Is the subtank some sort of coil recycling device then?

OH - always 0% nicotine. Does niocotine rot coils?
Good Idea - transfering extremely hot Mad Dog 357 chilli sauce to dropper-type, e-liquid bottle. Bad Idea - keeping it with other e-liquid bottles...

I rewicked after 4 weeks of the same coil. But the coils seem to last me awhile. Quite happy with the product.

OH God!!! I'm doing something wrong then...?

Am I supposed to put batteries in the MODs or something like that? Won't that make them a bit heavy?

I like to soak mine in juice for a few days to get them up to snuff.
KF4 Leaking? For a more secure seal, replace the o-ring #16 with one that is 1.5mm cross section. SKU 1536606 or SKU 1536607

Dayum! Thought that was my secret and I've been doing it looong before I started vaping!

With pretty clear/colorless liquid, I am getting a couple months per .5 OHM replaceable coil. Have had one Authentic .5 OHM go after 3 days, but that seemed like a crap piece of work, not the usual. We get shorter lifespans with darker colored &/or tobacco juices, which seem to cut down about 25% of the lifespan. My partner seems to go through her 1.2 OHM coils a little quicker in general, and faster still when vaping darker juices - 3 - 5 weeks average, then.
My results with the SubTank rebuildable platforms has been more varied, but still the longest working builds have been w/organic cotton, 2x28g coils @ .45 - .5 OHM, about 6 weeks using near-colorless liquid, as with the replaceables. Also had some builds go over in a few days - again, they were probably crap builds.
It seems like some folks are going through these coil heads pretty quickly; it may be differences in how we are using them. I use tanks primarily while I am working, and almost exclusively with pretty clear ejuices. I use a Subtank, .5 OHM coil w a cloupor mini, somewhere between 10W - 15W. I use a mech mod w/RDA's the rest of the time. I run through about 2.5ML fluid/day in the tank, maybe 3/4 of my daily vaping time. It also may be that some devices/mods beat the low resistance coils up more than others, or that the juice that you run through them influences performance and longevity of the coil. I would be pretty irritated if I got less than a few weeks out of an average coil, however. I have come to sort of expect a Month as a reasonable lifespan expectation for replaceable coils.
