Rant: a total pain to catch resistance for TC
Ok, so, when resistance is set properly, TC works alright for the purposes of preventing dry hits and lessening battery consumption.

BUT as soon as you change coil, the fudgery starts.

If the coil is of different enough resistance, the mod would politely ask you:
-- New coil?
And you answer:
-- Yes, kind sir.

Then you realize you were in NI200 mode and you want to change to SS, you do that and it asks again:
-- New coil?
But your coil is hot already and the stored resistance is for the last coil saved in this mode.


Then, say, you built a coil 0.01 Ohm lower than the one before and it's not even enough to trigger this dialogue and you can't trigger it manually. It doesn't show up even after unscrewing atomizer and screwing it back on, nor switching the mod on and off nor any combination of the two.

And when your resistance is set correctly, that's cuz it decided that for you, without even showing this dialogue.

Insanity.

This rage motivated me to figure out the method to madness:

-- There's a threshold difference in resistance within which the "New coil?" dialogue would never appear.

-- If you heat up a coil so that it passes that threshold, unscrewing-rescrewing the atomizer and pressing fire button would trigger the dialogue. This way, you assure the difference between old and new coils so that the dialogue would appear when new coil is in place.

-- Make sure you're in the correct TC mode before screwing on an atomizer with the new coil, cuz pressing fire button to change modes will heat up the coil and raise it's resistance. If you only use TRC mode you're fine.

-- Screwing on an atomizer with the new coil that passes the resistance difference threshold when Pico is off and turning it back on will result in new resistance being applied without asking you. Same goes for installing a new coil when the atty is still connected to the Pico that's been turned off.

What's even worse is when, defeated and demoralized, you switch to ":watts" mode, just to get a vape, and realize it's a much simpler, easier to obtain, even-or-better, way to vape. I kid, but more or less, it Is true...

Sorry, but one other thing could be Eleaf isnt exactly known for good T.C. -- many users download Arctic Fox, though that isn't going to change t.c. sampling, but it will give you more control over the settings in general.

Good luck!

No Arctic Fox for the new Picos, sadly ;(

Apparently the Pico 25's with the USB-C ports still have them? At least according to some narwhal bacon related posts? :P
