Smok baby beast coil setting?

Recommended Posts

I'll start by saying the coils that come with the Baby Beast (as well as all replacement coils at the moment) are kanthal.  With that out of the way...

The Baby Beast comes with two coils: The T8 (.15 ohm octo-coil) and the Q2 (.4 ohm dual core).  

The Q2 is the coil that comes pre-installed on the tank.  The Q2 coil allows for slightly more airflow than the T8.  The Q2 is rated from 20-50 watts with 30-40 watts being the recommended setting.

The T8 is the extra coil and is slightly more restrictive than the Q2.  The T8 is rated from 50-110 watts with 60-80 watts being the recommended setting.

I own two of these.  I run the T8 coils exclusively in my Baby Beasts and I generally set my mods to 75 watts.  It isn't too warm, it isn't too cool.  It's a small tank that packs a big punch.  Great clouds and great flavor.

It could a number reasons.  Here is my best guess and what I would think of as most likely:

1.  Not enough airflow.  And I mean you could be pulling too slowly in the intake. (this is counterintuitive because if we sense that it is harsh, we back off the inhale bit that reduces airflow which makes it worse).

2. Burnt coil due to age of coil, type of juice, lack of airflow 

3. Type of juice not suited for temperature (wattage) selected.

4.  Flavor of juice not appropriate for high wattage (according to taste)

5.  Bad coil?  Maybe got burnt early (never recovers)  defect?  

 

I'd start there

I have a Smok stick V8 with a baby beast tank.  Since I bought it about 8 weeks ago it is burning through coils and i have tried both T8 and the Q2.  Still burns them up after 2 days of vaping.  Vapes great until the 2nd or 3rd day.  I can have a full tank of juice and hit it and it will taste so burnt you'd think i was completely out of juice.  any recommendations as to why its doing this?  It also leaks.  not alot and not all the time...usually after it has burnt.

You may want to make sure your air is open far enough, if you don't get enough airflow across the coils they get pretty hot, and burn the cotton. Other than the airflow the only other thing I can think of is you are using too many watts, or you aren't priming the coil well enough.

0.15 ohm

50-110W

The coils are often not exactly as stated on the box (though they are usually very close). The device is showing you what voltage you are currently using, I suspect. Switch it to wattage mode instead and then you can set how you'd like. 

With that said though, if it's work now and your happy with it, there is no "wrong" setting per say. Go to high and you'll pop the coil, go to low and it just won't work.

Switch Mod too watts   they try around what Watts they recommend for the coil  then find your sweet spot

I have a question, I know it isn't about the coil, though I came here to learn something about those, too, and have, but I also have a question about whether or not the babybeast will fit my Wesmec Reuleaux RXmini mod. Any idea if it will fit?

Thank you. I hope to see a notable improvement in quality compared to the tank which came with my mini's mod because, though I'm happy with the wesmec Mod, its tank doesn't seem all that great.  but maybe it's just me, I'm still pretty new.

One other reason could be that you need to break in a coil. You prime a new coil with a couple of drops in the coil?
Drop you wattage on a net coil. Start at say 50 watts use it for a few hours then slowly up the wattage. Good luck.

Hey guys, i have the pro color smok, and i have been burning through the v8 baby t6 coils like crazy. I already checked air flow and i prime it like crazy. I checked my settings and i think i may have accidentally messed with the TCR. Could this be an issue, and if so, what would be the correct tcr?

Thanks
