    Hi everyone

    All the coils I make on the Ody last between 4 - 7 days before I have to change them (They get to gunked up or the flavour is not right)

    The one I currently has however is now at day 17 and still going strong.

    I really don't know why . The resitance / wick are from the same stock.

    What is everybodies experience on this ?

    3-7 days here. I have popped 2 dry burning at 7.4V. My last coil went weird while dry burning it today (after 3 days). I don't know why but for some reason I can never make a coil exactly where I want it (3 ohms) so I usually end up changing them out when I decide I want to try again.

    I have been running mine at 1.9 ohm 3.7volts. Dry burn almost everyday and last 5-7 days. The wick has been falling apart before the coil fails. Mostly cuz I don't put it in the channels and the mouth piece threads rub it.

    I just popped drip mode dry burning. Otherwise I would have expected at least 2 weeks like short mode. Then again tank mode should last longer. I should add - I ran approx. 24 - 27 ml in that time. My tanks. used while commuting. 2.6 @ 6v

    Mine last a good week too...but seems to always pop or go barely working (gunked) whe I am at work...grrrrrr

    I should get on with the program and make a new one every 3-4 days or so and be done with that

    God knows I got enough wick and wire to do that for a loooong time anyways

    I made up 30 wick/coils all at once and twisted the one NR end around small finish nails and have 3 different ohm ratings with 10 in each group around 3 finish nails and have them hanging all on a board. when I want one it is there and no need to have to worry about making one up, it's ready :2cool: Did the same with 325 & 400 SS Mesh for Genesis type Atty's seems to work great and be extra convenient for me. :2cool:

    I might add in tank mode I use clearest tobacco juices I have. If I used sweet juices like BWB malty toffee my coils gunk quicker.

    Yeah, bobas bounty is a dark sweet tabacco juice. Gunks up mine fairly quick.

    I know it happened to me and is real bummer!

    I now keep a spare emergency coil at my office just in case.

    I'm thinking that the biggest factor is juice, too. I vape sweet, dark juices and they were hell on atomizers. On the Ody, I replace my wick every 2-3 days to maintain good flavor and vapor.

    As a side note, changing the wick every couple of days is easily worthwhile to vape a good juice. I've thought about looking for a clear juice, but the amount of unwanted juice I have stockpiled is painful.

    Same here 1.3ohm @ 3.7 volts I'm getting 24-36 hrs before changing wick. I'm trying dry burns every big tank in hopes of extending my usable wick time.

    My longest ran almost 3 weeks but I now replace them once a week to keep the flavor and throat hit at optimal levels

    I run at 2.7~3.0 ohm at 7.4V

    So far I've only popped one coil, the rest I tore down because I felt like making a whole different setup, so can't really say how long they would have lasted. My current one is my longest running, about a week old and have filled the "big" mode tank 5 times, probably vaped about 30ml of juice so far. Still putting all of my cartos to shame, too :) Using a light-colored juice, though.

    A dark juice like coffee/chocolate lasts 3-4 days.

    19 days and still going strong . I just can't believe it !

    2.6 Ohm with 3.7 V

    I have gone thru a variety of DIY juices all 50/50 PG/VG all Flavourart flavours (Espresso,Dessert Ship,Caramel,Strawberry,Green Apple, Vape Wizard,Mellow Sunset) - not all together of course

    No gunking of the coil and not a hint of burned taste , clear strong flavour:)

    Typically I do a dry burn every night to have a fresh vape the next day. Unfortunately I use primarily dark sweet juices so my coil gets gunked in only a day of vaping. I'm finding that in big mode my coil is so gunked towards the end of the juice, 1-2 mils left, that the taste is off and starting to taste burnt. I really only need a medium tank, not the tall tank. Short mode is just a little too short and tall mode is just a little too tall.
