    Exclamation Micro Coils "SAFE" vs Sub-Ohm Coils "ADVANCED"

    I think this needs to be done as I keep seeing people tell someone to try sub-ohm coils before micro coils.
    Most of the time it is someone telling a noob to do it with no information about safety included and I don't want noone hurt, this will just scare someone off vaping and back on analogs and maybe get that story on the news also, so please help me get all the information in this one thread and to agree on it being a sticky thread.

    Everyone that has tried either 1 or both needs to put their setup and pro's con's ect...

    Here is a template
    Micro or sub-ohm coil:
    Device:
    Battery:
    Delivery device:
    Coil type:
    Wick type:
    Juice:

    I already made a video for new people to learn to make micro coils, it is for a puritank/protank/evod coil head but can be for anything you want this just shows you how to make a micro coil really easy.

    Micro or sub-ohm coil: micro coil
    Device: provari v2.5
    Battery: AW IRM 3.7V 2000mAH (7.4WH)
    Delivery device: puritank running at 4.5 volts
    Coil type: 32 gauge A1 kanthal, 2mm 3.5 ohms 9/10 wraps
    Wick type: cotton
    Juice: extreme ice from mbv 100% vg

    Pro's:
    Better vapor over normal coils and just as good or better then sub-ohm coils.
    Better flavor over normal coils and just as good or better then sub-ohm coils.
    This list goes on and on but I will let others add to this thread.

    Con's:
    Harder to make then sub-ohm coils but can be easy with a few things.

    Microcoils on a regulated mod are no safer than subohm coils at the same wattage.

    Regulated to 15watts like a provari is unsafe?, I could see using a battery not safe then yes here let me add a battery section.

    Didn't say it was unsafe only that it is no safer than a subohm coil at the same wattage...

    Sorry but using protected regulated circuits is safer than unprotected unregulated.

    Yes, being able to put a coil on a regulated, protected mod plus using IMR or hybrid li-ion batteries is two layers of safety and this is good.

    Microcoils are sick I love them. No desire to do a sub ohm at all. Thanks for passing on the good info bro. You're good in my book

    The 'safety' isn't in the coil. It's in the devices you can use it on. Being able to use a micro-coil on a regulated device, is the 'safety' advantage.
    A mech with an unprotected battery is no more safe with a micro-coil then it is with a sub-ohm coil.

    Yes but what do you think is better in taste at safe ohms/watts/volts/amps? Ok now what should be suggested since it taste the same or even better at safe ohms? Lets not say try sub-ohm on a mech with no other information as someone can be hurt, I just want new people to know both work great and that a noob can use micro coils at safe ohms and get the sub-ohm experience.
