    The Smok coils for the TFV8 series tanks, even the .15 coils, are all kanthal.

    Your... "pot"? I know today's 4/20 but that's not what we're here for.

    Just received the Wismec Noisy Cricket II-25 and Pharoah RTA in the mail. Installed a pre built staple staggered fused clapton coil.

    This may seem like a pointless post, but I want to share my little victory with the only folks I know will understand.  Been fighting with a strawberry home brew for awhile.  I am starting to get a feel for what each flavor will do in a mix.  I dare say I have found Strawberry Cream recipe that is exactly what I was looking for.  Now that is impossible buying commercial juices.  Don't mistake me, some are very good.  But I had a taste in my mind and I hit it.  For me, this is when vaping becomes exquisite!

    You are right about the TC and low ohms, I run a SS .5 to .8 coil with TC except for the 160w dripbox with that I run dual SS .8 coils that meter at .4, and get a cool to warm vape using the TC set at about 370 degrees.
    BTW I run a Hemi in my Dodge, and can get 26 mpg on a road trip if I keep my foot out of it, but its in a Magnum and not a Ram, much lighter car. But when passing the gas gauge moves almost as fast as the speedometer. Kind of like a mod when you turn the watts up and the battery don't last as long.

    Happy holiday all.  I'll be in beautiful Halfmoon Bay all day Sunday with family, doing the beach thing - prolly looking at 70s.  It's going to be fun and relaxing in a much needed way.

    That helps, thanks @Bebop and @Walt. So far from what I've experienced, this tank doesn't seem suited for MTL style of vaping.

    I do what Walt does.  I use a wide bore tip and I don't get my lips or tongue in front of the vapor.  I bite the tip and get my tongue out of the way hehe....

    I went from 24 to 18 in the first month, and was hovering at 12 by the first vaping anniversary.  Right now I'm bouncing between 3 and 9, depending on the tank/coil I'm using, and even the 9mg is strong enough that I take a few hits and don't touch it for hours at a time.
    My fiance isn't willing to come down from the 12mg I have her at right now... but she's only been vaping almost 2 years.  She "thinks" she's vaping 15mg, but that's only because I've not changed the labels on her bottles... Bwahahahahaha   Personally, if she's happy with her 12mg, she can stay there as long as she wants  
    I don't think either of us will quit vaping anytime soon... we both enjoy the flavors and we both enjoy the little bit of nicotine...

    I went from 18 nic to 3 nic my 1st year and it's been great.  
    After 4 years the wife has decided to quit so I'm helping her with that.  I don't expect her to go cold turkey but she's stoked we've been off for 4 years and her time to quit
    The good news - no pressure on me and I'm not quitting any time soon.  I'm toying with the idea of 0 nic though.

    Always good to hear about another successful mix!  Been thinkin about taking my nic down to 3mg from 6 myself.  The throat hit I used to enjoy is now becoming annoying and I'm slowing down a lot on my vaping.  Would be nice if it worked out.

    A trick I use to get resistance right is after my coils are installed I put the atty on a dedicated ohmmeter..
    I then touch the posts and legs with a small screwdriver looking for any fluctuations in ohms indicating a possible lose post screw or damage to the legs...usually a simple tightening down the right post screw fixes the problem..

  23. Adversarious1 liked a post in a topic by Bebop in Hitting a bit of a snag   
    I don't know if I can help you.  I've never been able to all day vape fruit flavors.  I totally enjoy them as a short switch, but they quickly cloy on me.  
    I've tried using a little sweetner in my mixes.  No success there.  And I despise overly sweet store bought juices.  Even things like root beer and licorice I love but only for a few short stretches to break up the day once in a while. 
    I've had some success mixing a tiny bit of fruit with other more savory flavors.  But it has to be only a hint.  This was most true when I was still vaping tobacco flavors. 
    Ive grown to appreciate more subtle savory flavors for my ADV. Coffees, caramels, vanillas, nutty flavors.  For me they stay more constant throughout the days.  
  24. Bebop liked a post in a topic by Adversarious1 in Hitting a bit of a snag   
    I'm the exact opposite from @Bebop.  I tend to stick to fruit based flavors as my ADV's and occasionally mix it up with the coffee flavors and "dessert" flavors.  To this day, more than 2 years after I started vaping, one of my favorite ADV's is the very first one I ever tried and is from a local shop - Lemon & menthol. 
    I do get "vaper's tongue" though, no matter how hydrated I stay.  When that happens, I will typically switch from berry to citrus or vice versa for a few days or I'll vape something pastry or dessert flavored for a couple of days and that will usually take care of it. 
    Other than that, I have never been able to find a single juice that is my "be all, end all".  Not even that very first juice I tried.  In this case, the only thing I can think of is that, while your taste buds are working again, it's possible you may be confusing the heck out of them with all of the different flavors you're throwing at them.
