    Default Bad coil in evod/pro tank , as new?

    Has anyone had a coil taste burnt/bad right out of the box, or new?

    First time this has happened to me. Evod BCC. Around the 15th coil I've used since I started using the EVOD.

    I thought it was rather weird, so I took a look inside, and I noticed the wire was wrapped around like 2 MORE times , and MUCH closer together then any of the other coils I've checked from the SAME package (2.2ohm I believe). I thought this unusual, as it came in a blister 5-pack. All the other coils looked the same. The coils on this one were sort of scrunched up, and the bottom part (the part you only take off to replace the coils, not to look at them) came off right away, on accident....never had that happen before either.


    Anyway, I put it in the bottle with the rest of the spent coils, but I thought this rather weird. Anyone had a coil bad, right out from the start?

    I hear that, of my 3 blister packs of 2.2ohm head about 1/3 were 2.8-3 ohm. QC is a big problem on just about all heads you buy no matter what brand. These days I don't even use coils that I didn't make myself.

    i concur. rebuilding is not only cheaper in the long run but saves you aggravation as well. if you want to get mad at yourself for making your own coil and it pops due to a short, at least its your own fault.

    And lets not forget its quite satisfying to build the coil, wick it, fill it and vape it.

    Da two ProTanks I've tested were horrible with da orig coils! Da replacements were better, but not satisfactory.

    I rebuilt all my new coils. I'm more confident in my quality than chinese quality.

    all the coils in the blister packs that came with my T3s replacements needed to be cleaned/boiled/dried before use or they taste like machine oil and I had to dump out all the juice.
    I mostly rebuild, but there was a sale where you buy 5 and get the T3s bottom for free.

    Well, if you are talking about rebuilding pro tank or evod coils, they are extremely easy. Just look up a vid on youtube, I haven't done my own yet, but as you can see, it is exceptionally easy, no technical skill or know how required.

    As far as true rebuidables I don't know
