    Thank you all.

    It is going to be interesting to see what has happened to the technology since I last had a play.


    I guess there is little functionality I could make that has not already been done....

    So am wondering what the programming language is in my Elitar.


    Maybe I could write a simple menu, or even midify it do allow custom designed waveforms... High pulse for vapour, mid pulse for taste, all part of a single multiplexed waveform.....


    If it is C#, I may have to order another one, just in case I brick it.....


    Ha, can't believe I am talking like this, about a bloody ecig. They certainly have changed.

    Am cycurrenton my way north of the border, so will have 10 mins before I start work to set it up and have a try...

    New coils have recommended wattage printed (engraved) on them. When in doubt, always start at the lowest recommended wattage and work your way up only if necessary. If I understand it correctly, your device is compatible with different kinds of coils, including TC (nickel and stainless) coil--this coil should be used in TC mode on your mod. The 1.5 coil is probably a Clapton coil (8-20 watts). The .5Ω coil (if stainless steel) can be used in both power and TC mode (15-30 watts).

    More information about your pipe and coils (scroll down):

    Those are either TC coils (nickel, titanium--extremely LR wires) or very complex multi-coil atties for DL use.
    Mods don't come with variable airflow--toppers (tanks) do. You may restrict AF somewhat from the outside, but I suggest you look for tanks specifically designed for MTL, with small center airflow intake holes under the coil (1.2-1.8 mm diameter).

    I guess the question is not so much about selecting the power level. I think it is more about the benefits of either system.

    Irrespective of what power I find best (remember the next options are new), what is the benefit of each option.

    So 0.5 ohm resistor at 2.5v (example)
    Or
    1ohm resistor at 5v.

    Both in this example would be 5w....

    So does a lower voltage equal more flavour.
    Lower current more throat hit?

    Otherwise, why the number of options of coil resistance when the device can just be set to give the same wattage regardless?

    What is the relationship between resistance and vape characteristics at the same wattage?

    Or is it just a way to separate vapers from their money and I just set wattage?

    No idea. People who were forum members and started their own juice companies? Don Krom (BWB), Eric (Vapor Station), digimonk2 (Deej's Stuff), Drew (Enhaler).... ?

    Forgive me if I get words /titles wrong, things are a wee bit different now...

    I have to find out names and functions I have never had before, and because I have not been vaping for a long time, and don't even know what it is for.

    For example, the current atty has a LVC.

    It has taken some effort to find out what it meant, let alone what it did.


    Am guessing if I open it fully, I will get more flavour?

    Too many questions. :lol: You're overthinking it a bit. What you want, I guess, is a nice MTL tank (topper). There are many good ones on the market. Tight(er) draw, thinner (higher resistance) wires, low wattage. Many of them come with sub-ohm coils. Some are rebuildable, others have drop-in coils. Trial and error. Watch some YouTube reviews--I find them very helpful. Good luck!

    If you open what? Airflow control on your device? If so, you'll get more air, not more flavor. If you open liquid valve control, you'll increase juice flow to the coil. Again, it will not affect taste--just eliquid flow.

    The name Drew rings a bell....

    Ha, he may remember a slightly crazed English bloke who used to live stream making my mods with loud music. I once spent an entire weekend, from Friday evening to Monday morning, not a wink of sleep, just making my latest mod .

    I think the chap who built the GG telescopic was just as fanatical...

    But he sold his

    So hotter, higher flow to prevent a dry fire?

    And the airflow just to change draw pressure?

    If it's Drew, he passed away a couple of years ago. He was a great guy and very dedicated to the vaping community.

    GG? Wow! I forgot all about GG mods. :)

    Hotter? If you're using thick, viscous juices (high VG), you may want to open the juice control valve wider to avoid dry hits.

    Yes. If you like a very tight cigalike draw, close the AFC almost all the way. If that's too tight, and you're getting dry hits or "milkshake through a tiny straw" kinda vape, open it up.

    Then there was also the famous Nick'O'Teen--he is an English bloke. He owns Decadent Vapours--brilliant guy and a former member of ECF. Great mixologist. I loved his Lotus and Tabs. And Doppio Espresso. And Black Currant. :)

    Nick o teen must have come after I last vaped.

    So am in Scotland, had 40 winks. About to let my dog have a stroll, start work, then I may have 10 mins play....

    And as far as the questions, I really do need to find out the answers.

    I am an electro mechanical design engineer.... And part of my personality it learning to understand the relationship between values....

    So am now confused...

    And I am fed up with people telling me what I want....

    Let me explain...
    Got kit all set up .
    Everything as it was, kind of is reminiscent of the old flavour, but not as ruch. It used to feel like I had a mouthful of McDonald's milkshake.

    Not the same today.

    I went to a local ecig shop who told me that I want high PG...

    But that is not what I used to have.

    I got told that I don't want to use VG with a 1.8 coil.

    But I do, cos that was what I did.

    They then told me that the liquid I have IS high PG, cos it it too thin to be VG...

    But it looks as I remember it...


    So, as you can tell, I have a sweet tooth.

    Strawberry milkshake was always my favourite, closely followed by the vanilla custard that (I am sure it was Alien Capes) used to make up for me...


    So, requirmentsr are one of the two flavours above, ever so rich flavour and if there is a decent amount of vapour, even better.

    I am not a person who likes changing as you can tell, so any advice would be ever so much appreciated.

    And my preference has always been high resistance coils.

    Can someone please help me find that pleasure atain?

    Also was a big fan of the smooth feeling, more than throat hit....

    I have varied between 3.7 and 4.3v

    I have the airflow just as I like....

    Am just missing that richness of flavour.

    I think that perhaps your memory is playing mind games with you.

    Not to dismiss your inquiry for help, but I don't think anyone on an internet forum will be able to help you find that pleasure. Everyone here has labored through trial and error to find what works best for them. What works for me may not work for you, and vice versa. Consider vaping as a journey of exploration, not an instant destination.

    These might help you on your way:


    "Throat hit" is primarily the product of your nicotine concentration. The higher the nic, the more throat hit. The amount of Pg (propylene glycol) in your e-liquid's Pg/Vg ratio also plays a minor role in "throat hit".

    In my opinion, a "smooth" vape is the end product of a perfectly set up vape setup with a perfectly mixed recipe of flavors at the right wattage setting. That is a lot of variables to take into account.

    There are certain tanks/rda's/atties which are known for giving better flavour. If you like rebuilding and making your own coils the ammit MTL rda by geekvape is stunning for flavour. You can choose your resistance and see how you get on....

    Welcome back by the way :)
