I started the break in of the coil at 10w. But really anything past 28w changes the flavor completely.
The wattage range usually doesn't have much to do with taste, as that (typically) depends on the juice.

All the recommended wattage range really determines is a sweet spot that doesn't burn your coil's cotton too fast.

You'll notice different juices bring out different flavors at different wattages/temperatures. Also, word on the street is that for some reason claptons are better used with dessert flavors than fruit flavors.

I even read about some juice that was purposely made to taste different at high and low temps

Hm, never had much of a problem with spitting with 22. I found 22 heats more "evenly"? like its a quick but steady increase to desired temp (watts), then it steadily decreases. With 24 I find that it's like on/off. Like as soon as you press the button it fires at 100% and then immediately drops to 0 when you let go. Not really a bad thing, maybe it's my builds, or I'm just used to the 22.

sounds expensive to vape with a tank lol
so do you guys vape for the sake of vaping? or to quit smoking?
because in the end it sounds like youre spending a lot more too.
isnt that part of the reason why people stop smoking

For me, vaping started out as to quit smoking. Not really about how much it costs, but more about the health aspect.

Now that I'm completely off smoking, it's become more of a hobby/interest, getting to play with new toys and taste new flavors.

So yeah. I guess you can say I vape for the sake of vaping now

for me vaping is like a hobby/interest - plus it helps me relax quite bit since i am inhaling/exhaling a lot more then i normally would (everyone is different)

best thing is drinking dark coffee + vaping a sweet juice its just soo good while playing games or just watching a movie at home

plus nicotine by itself is like a cognitive enhancer - then you have the nice effect of nic high when you chain vape too much

for me its a combo of all these things listed. i started vaping to quit smoking but now its a hobby and ya, i vape for the sake of vaping. its worked out well. i stopped smoking pot and started to drink a lot more booze, then i was drinking and smoking cigs a lot more and now all i do is vape. i have booze every now and then.

started off as a way to quit smoking, which turned into an expensive hobby.

Bought a Uwell Crown about a week ago, and now I'm vaping close to 10 ML a day, vs before when I had my Herakles I would go through maybe 4

prob gonna go with that option instead of the minivolt since battery life is better+still small enough to bring to clubs or sneak into events
Minivolt battery life really that bad? Been eyeing this mod for awhile now. Nice and small to use as a vape setup for work.

if its just for work should be ok.

I think the Istick 40w+subtank mini is a cheaper alternative though with better battery life.

I will look into that. I will be using subtank nano with the 0.5 coil. Heck even the istick 30w is attractive to me for the size. Really want a pocketable device that would last me all day. Already have subtank mini kit as my main mod.

I heard the 30W is pretty much the same size as the 40. and its only about $2 cheaper on fasttech. about $37 CDN. plus another 20% off for chinese new years I think im gonna grab it lol

https://www.reddit.com/r/Canadian_ec...unghei_feb_57/

https://www.fasttech.com/products/0/...ah-temperature

havent used my subtank mini in months since there are way better sub-ohm tanks available. the subtank mini was the best of its class when it first came out. It barely uses any juice though. I just had shitty luck with the burning coils the last time I used it. burnt like 2-3 within a weeks because I followed the recommend wattage lol


what about dat real wood rx200 skin doe

Higher mah isn't the be all end all of batteries. There are different batteries with different electrolytes that work better for different devices (regulated vs unregulated, for example).

But generally speaking, you'll be fine with any. I've pretty much used every brand out there and haven't had a problem. LG, Samsung, Imrens are all good for regulated. Efest has had some flack lately, but I've never had a problem with them.

Check that you're not on temp control mode with a kanthal coil? Or if you've accidentally fired it on TC?

Other than that... Maybe your coils aren't primed properly? Once you burn the cotton on them, the burned taste is going to always kinda be there, even if the cotton on the outside still looks white.

With these newer tanks you need to overdo the priming like crazy because they use so much cotton. I soak the hell out of the coils as much as I can, fill the tank, leave it overnight, and the next day I close the airholes and suck. Probably overkill, but fuck, tfv4 coils come out to like $5-$7 each. Rather do all I can to prolong their lifespan.
