    Default What type of DCT do you use with your LT?

    And where did you get it from?

    I purchsed a couple of 2.5ohm clear DCT's from Nhaler to use on my LT and Im not happy with them. Vapor is poor at any Voltage, throat hit is there, but not great either.

    I have used a 2.5 Mega XXL DCT from TastyVapor with it and that does the job a little better at anything over 5V.

    I tried a Litecig 1.5Ohm XL DCT and I wasnt pleased with the vapor or throat hit at any voltage either.

    I like the DCT's but I'm trying to find my sweet spot as far as Voltage goes.
    I dont necessarily HAVE to vape at 5.0-6.0Volts...Im just looking for what works and 3.7 just doesnt seem to be cutting it for me anymore.

    oh - attys work fine on my LT.. High voltage is great with an atty but Im getting sick of dripping and with High Voltage the risk of burning up the atty with dripping is very high.

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    personally I started with DCTs and didnt like them too much, Single Coil was highly highly recommended, so i got Single Coil XL Tank Cartomizer for the SmokTank XL and put them in this tank SmokTank XL - Dual Coil Cartomizer Tank - New tank design for 510 PV's! 6ml 1.5ohm, removing the 1.5ohm cartomizer and putting the 3.0 SC one in, and im happily vaping away at 4.3v

    absolutely, all the cartos that ive used in my tanks have been interchangeable, they will stick up a little more out of the 3.5 but they do fit

    So far my favorite in my DCT is my 3ohm single coil, then my 2.5 dual coil. But I also have 2.0 single coil I haven't tried...

    Rag, your running into the limitation of the lavatube and dual coil's. there are dozens of threads and videos out there about it if you look. But the short of it is the lavatube's lower amp limit and protection circuit dont like dual coils and dial the voltage way way down which is why your getting anemic hits from it on a dual coil but the atty's are working fine. Madvapes sells single coil replacment tank cartos, at 2.0 and 3.0 ohms, with the flange or you can use the xl sized single coil cartos at 1.7ohm and 2.5ohm if you want to punch them yourselves.

    I tested a few different single coils with my lavatube using the stock batteries and panasonic. Here is the link to the thread.

    Lava/Vari Tube measured volt and watt for 1.7,2.0,2.5,3.0 cartomizers

    Based on my results, id recomend the 2.0 ohm or 2.5 ohm to get the maximum wattage or heat. I'm not saying you have to run that much heat, but if you want the biggest possible range of wattage output those 2 resistances work best.


    Cheers

    I actually run the actv3, a couple of J tanks, and a couple of liquinators throughout the day. different flavors in each one so my tastebuds don't get bored. I have a 6ml smoktek tank with a single coil carto that I also use.

    I don't have anymore Smoketech cartos with the flange but the old one I had would not fire on my Lavatube. Anyone know why? Is it bad? I thought that maybe the metal making contact in some weird way. Don't want to pick up anymore of these if they don't work. Thought I read something about lavtubes not working with the dual coil cartos.
