Dual coils have never made sense to me on lower-voltage devices, which the Twist still somewhat is. If it were even capable of putting 4.8 volts to a 1.5 ohm dual coil cartomizer [drawing 3.2 amps in the process], which it's not, that would still be a maximum of 7.6 watts per coil. If and when the Twist hits its amp limit (I have heard 2.5), it would be putting just 4.6 watts or so to each coil with maybe 3.7 volts. Again, it makes no sense to me to use dual coils on a Twist.
I have also always wondered why a DCT is called that; a "Dual Coil Tank". That implies that it needs to be used with a dual coil cartomizer, which is just not the case. I am getting great performance with the single coils; not so great with 3.0 ohm, but very great with 2.0 - 2.5 ohm.

While I don't have the VV ego I did get the Ego C a week ago. Some years ago I tried the 510 and it helped, but I still smoked and craved analogs. Now after a week I haven't had a cig in 4 days. That morning analog craving is the worst for me, but even without the VV, the ego certainly fills that hole where the 510 I had didn't. This device will be the one to get me off of smoking forever, and I am already considering vaping a hobby. I can tell I won't stay with the ego for too long. After I learn more about cartos I am looking into something like the provari V2. It is exciting experimenting with new flavors and even things like the clearomizers I've tried. I focus less on smoking and turn to vaping with enthusiasm, and I don't think about analogs at all. In fact they already smell pretty nasty.
Cool moment actually I was at an event yesterday and the smokers were gathered outside and so I joined them casually chatting while I got plenty of curious stares but no questions. Felt like the kid with the Nintendo in a room full of Atari's
Great starter device!!
But to get this kind of attitude I think you have to have something in your hands that works "good enough" for now.
At that point, you can either be satisfied, or see the potential for bigger and better things.
Either way, you are probably "there" when you feel this way.
I found this forum, learned, and embraced electronic cigarettes while she eventually went back to smoking.
She refused to utilize this forum, or my advice, saying she would prefer to do things her way.
Eventually, she did things her way right back to cigarettes.
As an aside, she now also very much likes the WTA juice I got for her.
She calls it her "stress reliever" juice.
