    My wife has run into a bad batch of coils. They must be manufactured improperly because they instantly give off a burnt tasting vape. we prime the coils with juice and allow the tank to sit, absorbing juice before taking a vape.

    the coils that came with the device worked really well, and they lasted for a significant amount of time.

    but now with the replacement coils, shes having a very poor vaping experience. does anyone know if anywhere is selling good coils for the Pockex?

    ive searched around a little bit, and from what i can see, reviewers are giving poor reviews for the coils for the last few months. they seem to be having the same trouble as my wife.

    please help.

    I had a similar problem.
    I hadn't considered the coils to be a factor .
    I put it down to the high VG juices I use and the cold making the VG too thick for the device.
    It improved with a little alcohol added to the juice .
    I am hoping it will improve as this hard winter gives way to a welcome spring.

    Is it possible to be the juice that your using? I just bought my pockex 3.5 weeks ago and I'm still on the first coil. I'm using nic salt in mine.

    You might try sticking a pin into the cotton to improve the wicking. I’ve read on here other people suggesting it. Push a needle into the sides of the coil where the cotton is visible like 2-3 times. Maybe that will help.

    Good luck.

    These tanks with mass produced coils from many various brands you gamble every time you purchase new coils for them. If your handy at all I would recomend picking up an actual Rebuildable tank.
    Indeed I suggest the OBS Engine Nano, building coils and wicking it are absolutely dead easy for me and I have bad eyes and arthritus in my fingers. There are lots of video tutorials on youtube.
    Good luck.

    I'm quite adept at building but these are for my wife. She likes to be able to switch out a coil without waiting for when I get around to rebuilding for her.

    I doubt it's the juice. The coil that comes with the device is widely regarded as well made. My wife was using 100VG juice with them and they wicked fine.

    With the replacement coils, tons of people are reporting problems. Plus she's using 65VG.

    It's a bad batch of coils and I just wish I could find a vendor selling a good batch like the ones that come with the device.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I'd like to keep this thread alive in hopes of gaining a clue to where might have a good batch.

    Otherwise I fear we may need to find a new system for her...again. Just got these a few months ago. Would have to replace 4 units and close to a dozen coils. Super bummer :(

    I can confirm, and it sounds like it's pretty certain that they ran into issues making these. I used these coils for almost a year without much problem, but then I ran into about 4-5 packs that were all pretty horrible. Note, I wasn't using these in the Pockex, but rather my Naut X.

    It seemed like 70VG was the problem, but it's hard to say for certain. But same thing as described- just bad burnt hits and flavor I finally just ditched them all together and switched to using the Naut 1.8 coils. Obviously not a fix for someone using it on the Pockex device, but maybe you can try using that new 1.2 coil out there.

    Thanks drysprocket. Appreciate it. Do you know of a reputable online store selling the new 1.2Ω coil?

    VapeNW is the only place that I've seen them in passing, but they appear in stock there now. They're a reputable...ish ;) I often get my coils from them, and never any complaints. I try to stick to the big ones for stuff like mods though for support.

    they started out great. but now my wife is telling me on eof them is already tasting burnt after less than 10ml has gone through it. i got 6, so maybe this was a fluke. but im already trying to find a new similar style all-in-one unit. anyone have one that they like, including liking the coils?
