    I'm using a Innokin Cool Fire 4 Plus with Innokin iClear 30s coils.

    In the last few weeks, I have had to replace the coils more and more frequently. I normally use one coil for about a week, no I have to change every 2 to 3 days.
    I've noticed that the coils which are 1.8 ohm originally end up in the 2.30 2.40 after a couple of days.

    Any idea what the problem might be?

    As the ejuice "gunks up", for lack of a better term, your coil the resistance increases, this is normal.

    Have you switched juices at all? Sweeter juices will reduce the coils life expectancy.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have changed but same shop and same flavours. I used to get 40 ml of base, 10ml of 70VG/30PG nicotine, and 2 bottles of flavour. Recently got packs of 4 * 10ml of Pure VG base (nicotine already mixed in) + 10ml of flavour. So not that different, is it?

    The mod seems to work fine, but could it be the cause of the problem? 2 days seem really short (i go through about 6-8ml a day.

    Your iClear 30 clearomizers are old technology. Since it is an older tank, available coils may be old stock, or be of poorer quality than before. I'm kind of surprised those coils are still being made. If memory serves me right, the iClear 30 came out in 2013. It's pretty rare for something that old to still be produced.

    You might consider upgrading to a more modern clearomizer. I'll suggest the Innokin Zenith tank, which is extremely popular around here.

    The 30S is a very old design. It also had a major flaw... one of the silicone components melted..!!

    Get a new tank. Get a more modern coil. You owe it to yourself. :)

    It is the way of vaping gear to become unavailable fairly quickly I’m afraid. What likely happened is the company stopped making coils and all there is available is clone coils. Vaping gear at the moment is kind of where cars were in the 1920s

    Welcome and glad you joined.
    6-8 seems about right. Style of vaping along with equipment and e liquid can be huge factors in determining longevity of a drop in coil.

    Thank you all for the replies and advice.

    I Hadn't realised my gear was so out of date, haven't really looked into as I was happy with mine until recently.
    Ok then, is the innokin Zenith the tank to go for then? With which coil?

    I should mention that I have a iSub V from 3 years ago, and a Jacvapour S22 tank.

    Are these any good?

    I think most people here will confirm that the Innokin Zenith tank is the best non-sub-ohm MTL tank currently on the market. As to which coil, I would go with the higher ohm coil as it would be the closest to what you are familiar with the iclear 30 if that is what you are looking to replace.

    In reality, you should try both coils though. That's the only way to determine which one truly suits you.

    I don't know what the iSub V is, never heard of it. I've heard of the JAC Vapour S22 because I have two JAC Vapor series B DNA75W but I've never tried the S22 tank. What do you think of it?

    I have actually decided to try the S22 this afternoon, and it's quite good, but it's direct to lung I believe, so it's quite different. The iSub V is a sub ohm too, from Innokin. Didn't like it when I tried 3 years ago..

    I might give the Zenith tank a try then.
