    Do lower olm coils need to b fired at higher wattage

    Hey all just a bit of general advice i was vaping on the .3 and .5 coils that come with the pico was vaping at around 24v i also ordered the tc ni coils that r .15 olms not a big fan of tc so am using vw is it normal for the watts to have to be higher on a lower olm coil. Next time i order i will just get the .3 or .5 coils

    Nickel doesn't do well in VW mode because as it gets hotter the resistance rises sharply. This is going to give you some really odd results on a VW mod.

    Nickel seems to decompose and give a metalic flavour to the vape. Some people don't notice, some people can't stand it, but it could certainly affect your perception of the flavour. The watts will drop off as the wire heats up due to the change in resistance - that might be affecting things too.

    Yep, see if that works better. To get a true baseline reading of the resistance the coil has to be room temperature though, so be careful. A coil that has already been used and is warm will have the wrong baseline, so the actual temperatures will not be correct.
