    New to vaping --- need a better throat hit. I currently vape Mini Protank 2 on a Ego Twist 1100 VW --- thinking of switching to iClear 16 or iClear 30 -- which will provide me with a better throat hit? I currently use 80/20 pg/vg at 36mg:vapor:

    Wow..you really do like throat hit...

    Iclear 30, but they're pretty similar... You'll want to get a collar/skirt to look good on a twist.

    Your problem (well, one of them) is a lack of air flow. If you go to an iClear 30, due to their design, you can increase air flow through them fairly dramatically. You have to partially disassemble it to do it, but it's not hard, or complicated.

    Can't help you with the PT... I use mostly Kayfuns, with the wife using iClear 30s.

    Don't toss the mini :) what coil? You try the 1.8 coil?

    They are both great as I own and use both. If your going for discreetness and uniformity then the 15 on your ego is the way to go. If your running an ego primarily that's what I would stick to. When I move to a full size 18350/18650 mod I put on the iclear 30 for uniformity.

    It just depends on your setup and personal preference really. Obviously the Iclear 30 holds more juice but I generally throw a small bottle in my pocket if I know I will be out for awhile. Either way you will be satisfied with both. I really prefer them over my protanks. Hope this helps.

    I am definitely keeping my protank to maybe rebuild when I become more advanced. I just need a better throat hit that the mini is not producing - that is with the watts turned up to 4.8

    I think they give similar throat hit but the iclear16 would look better on an eGo and the iclear30 looks better on the bigger mods

    Op replied before I got back to my tablet to finish the post, deleted.

    I thought you meant volts, unless your ego vv is also vw and doesn't follow the .5w increments like most apv's. :)

    Cotton with 5 wraps of 32gauge kanthal gets me 1.8-2.0 ohms on my Protank heads. If that helps you any... If you plan on rebuilding them anyhow. It's pretty easy to do and can save you a good bit of money. Especially if you decide to use them daily. Small $10 investment would allow you to rebuild dozens heads/coils if not a hundred of them.

    I started with i30's and i16's and i prefer the 16 hands down, the 30's have too much wick to MY liking. The 16 provided enough TH with 18mg juice when i started :)

    Never thought about rebuilding the pro tank that's brilliant!

    Would silica work fine or does it have to be cotton? I'm new at this rebuilding game :)

    Bogeyjim, silica works fine, so does cotton, particularly with a nice microcoil. Check Rip Trippers YouTube video tutorial on this... If you haven't checked it out.

    OP, I30s or I16s; friend they both perform as they should. Good top coil clearomizers. Frankly, it comes down to aesthetics - what will please you eye while you enjoy your vape. Just my :2c:

    Can you tell us more about the juice you are using? What kind? Where did you get it? I use ProTanks and ProTan mini 2 and get excellent throat hit with good juices. I use 24mg nic. Higher nic helps throat hit, as does PG/VG ratios.

    Instead of focusing on gear, the simplest answer to more throat hit is to increase the nic level of your juice.

    What juice are you using? The flavors. You should be getting plenty of throat hit with 36mg juice running a protank at 4.8 volts. What ohms are the heads in your protank? Please tell us the flavors and vendors you are using for your juices. Do not increase nic level higher than the 36mg you are currently using. How often are you vaping?

    I wouldn't recommend these to anyone. I had horrible luck with mine and call it the igarbage30 piece of junk IMO

    Great video but what the heck is a micro coil vs a nano coil? My research is making my head spin!

    I think the iClear 30 looks pretty awkward on a twist. I feel like the iClear 16 is warmer, but the iClear 30 produces richer denser vapor. As for throat hit, I'm not sure.
