    There was discussion about fancy coils vs simple round wire builds. This morning i did a test I usually use tge following. Setup. Istick pico at 8 Watts 70%vg 30%pg diy juice Kayfun Lite Plus v3 rta .8 ohm coil. This morning everything was identical except the coil was. 77 ohm. I could...

    For anyone that wants to use tanks with cartridge coils, I always recommend tanks that are part of a shared design. I know that the SMOK beast coils have become part of such, with Eleaf and a few other makers of tanks have started adopting their coils to be cross-compatible. But here I am...

    I'm re-hashing text I wrote a while back and belongs in a blog instead of where I had it. Simply: The whole diacetyl thing... if that would be a problem, you'd be dead already if you ever smoked cigarettes. Cigarettes has THOUSANDS of times more diacetyl and every other chemical that the witch...

    First I must state the disclaimer that we do not know the range of how "safe" vaping is to an absolute. I'm going with info that I've read about from reliable sourses but I didn't bookmark them otherwise I'd post the links here. I will post a few that I do have. That said: vaping is NOT 95%...

    Batteries are to be very respected, if the wrap or the top insulating ring are damaged, stop using the battery and fix it. The "standard" 18650 are a bit of odd man out, as you need to know that there's so many variants. First: never buy the crappy re-wrapped third party brands, only go with...

    First, safety: Nickel (NI/NI200) or Titanium (TI), NEVER heat those up outside of temp control.... if you use these metals and the coil gets dirty, throw them out and build new ones. If you have Khantal (KH) or Stainless (SS), you can dry heat them up but never go beyond a dull red while...

    The trick to good wicking is to have good wick with straight fibers, and knowing how thick and long you need to put in. Note: This guide concentrate on cotton, but even other type of wick is technically the same, except that you may need to make it tighter and use a larger thickness due that...

    Ohm.. that's the resistance.. the lower the number, the lower the resistance, the higher the heat (and reached faster). With a decent regulated mod, I always recommend staying within 0.2ohm at the lowest, up to around the 1ohm range. This has an impact on the battery in regard to a battery's...

    TC coils simply work better when spaced. Spaced coils tend to wick better (I find) as the distance between the wraps manages the liquid flow better (in my opinion and experience) Spaced coils are super easy: 1) Take your wire, wrap it tight around whatever tool you're using for the size...

    TCR (Temperature Coefficient of Resistance) this is the changes in resistance that occurs in metals when heated. Khantal (KH), the basic metal used by many, simple, but have very little TCR value, so it cannot do TC. It is used in wattage mode only. Nickel (usually referred as NI200), has the...

    A lot of people have been debating about charging via the USB ports of regulated mods as many appear to have concept taken from AC or mechanical aspects of electrical devices that are not correct. Here's the run down about this. Most newer regulated mods have charging circuits that are either...

    As some topics keep coming up, the same questions asked, I find that I keep answering the same things over and over, so I decided to turn this into a collection that will hopefully help others and save time. Sadly, some of these items are constantly debated by people that do not either have a...
