    Question Coils, Coils, Coils.... and other techy stuff.

    Firsty, the mods -
    VW/VV/Bypass/TC-Ti/TC-Ni/TC-SS
    how do you know what setting to use?

    The instruction manual tells you HOW to set these but expects the end user to know what it all means. To me, it looks a bit like chinese. lol
    I know it has something to do with the coils, but what exactly?


    Then, the coils.
    using my kit as the example - Aspire Zelos 50w with Nautilus 2 tank.
    2 coils fit this i) 0.7 up to 24 watt
    ii)1.8 up to 14 watt
    Does this mean that you can't vape over 24 watts??

    When I embark on a new adventure, whatever it may be, I like to do my research but the more I read, the more it gets complicated.
    As I said to my daughter this morning, just trying to understand this I had the urge to light a smoke to calm my nerves.

    Someone really should write a Guide to "Vaping for Dummies"

    you can do over 24 watts but thats the range for the coil you have

    vw and vv is your normal on most mods now

    the tc (temp control) is

    titanium
    nickel 200
    stainless steel

    basicly any wire can be wattage or volts but if your into controling your vape the TC is what you want most if not all coils mark what they are wire wise and off that you chose the setting since most are kanthal thats a variable wattage wire
    If you know it. Help someone
    If you dont know it. Ask

    I got my mod working without ever touching the manuals, would have appreciated one for my RDTA but then again, Chinglish is the worst
    as I understand it, for quick reference.. Steam engine is a good place to play around with what your device, batteries, coils and tank can do.. just as a GUIDE
    the lower your ohms go the quicker current travels from your battery terminal to the negative terminal which means your wire gets hotter and so does your battery and your coil outputs higher WATTS.

    Ohms are resistance, you want a cooler vape? go for 1.0 ohm or above, more vapour? go for sub ohms
    batteries drain fast when you go sub ohm, you need good batteries rated with an amperage that matches what wattage you want with a coil that is rated for the wattage you want.


    as for Variable Voltage/wattage devices, this is just an assumption but if you exceed the watts you're either going to have
    1. a cold vape because your device cannot boost the amps
    2. the resistance in the wire is going to cause you to end up getting a hotspot in places you don't want (at least that's what i feel happens when I exceed the wattage)

    Also keep in mind, you can have tiny coils with higher resistance and larger coils with less resistance, how does this work? well ideally you want more surface area so that it evaporates more eliquid which means more vapour and most importantly means your coil is cooled by the evaporation.

    I hope this helps, anyone feel like correcting any mis information go for it!!

    Use variable wattage (VW), don't exceed the W rating on the coils.
    Gain experience with this first

    And finally, start low and work your way up until you find a setting you like.

    As GT said, start with VW mode.
    Forget about the other modes until you are confident you know what to expect from your vape.
    Start with the coil rated for the lower wattages & set your mod to the lowest wattage recommended for that coil.
    Slowly raise the wattage until you are getting good flavor from the vape, you can ignore the max rating(really this is just a recommendation by the manufacturer) of the coil but if it starts to taste even just a little burnt, back the wattage down by 1-2W or more.
