    Hello everyone,
    It seems that the recent trend is to use mesh style coils.
    I am fairly new to vaping (about three months now), and I am curious about using mesh coils.
    Apparently, mesh coils provide better, quicker heat, better taste, better vapor, etc.
    I do not vape for cloud production, I vape for the flavor.
    What are your experiences and thoughts around mesh coils?
    I currently use a Kanger Top Tank Mini setup, and I have the understanding that this mod would not support the use of mesh coils as it would not have enough power. And, there are no current coils available that would fit a Kanger Top Tank. So, would I be looking at buying a larger mod that would support the use of mesh coils? If so, what do you recommend? Would anything that uses one 18650 battery be powerful enough, or would I be looking at a mod that uses two 18650 batteries?

    Is something lacking in vape quality with the set up you're currently using?
    Which of the kangar replaceable heads for your top tank have you tried?

    There is always something being touted as the latest greatest new & improved, it is a way to drive sales.
    Most often you'll end up with a bunch crap you don't use & wonder why you bought.

    I agree with this, one of the bigger pitfalls in vaping is there is always some new device or coil that is touted as the next big thing and 5 billion times better than whatever you are currently using. Often times this is not true and is just a marketing strategy. If you like what you have just stick with it, it'll save you allot of money on failed experiments.

    I have a freemax fireluke mesh, in my opinion it is the best tank I've ever owned. Flavor and vapor are top notch. The coils are rated between 40-90 watts, so yes you would need a dual battery mod. I vape mine at 50 watts, I like a cool vape, you may like it higher or lower. In my opinion the mesh tanks live up to the hype. As a side note I have so far ran 150 ml's through the original coil and it's still going strong.

    I've never tried a mesh coil. I can see lots of reasons for it and etc., but unless there is a mesh MTL coil I am unaware of, I think maybe it improves flavor but for someone already sub0hming? IDK quite how it works, to be honest.

    I don't really know how the mesh coil differs from the traditional coil, I think it heats more evenly. What I do know, is that I have never ran 150 ml's of juice thru a coil before and it's still going strong.

    I have the firelux. It’s okay. Tiny though. Doesn’t hold a lot of liquid, so it needs a lot of refills.

    Currently you can get a 5ml expansion tank for the Fireluke Mesh. I have a 10ml expansion tank from Inked Atty

    The thing with mesh is you need an enormous piece of it to reach usable resistances, and that's not really conducive to the kind of tight restrictive airflow needed for a MTL vape. All the mesh coils I've used (all two of 'em) are low-low-low, .15 or .2 ohms, and give a huge, dense, flavorful DL vape at 75-80w.

    the issue i have with mesh coils is that it cooks my preferred juices. its great for the straight forward flavor profiles, but the more subtle and nuanced flavors get lost. its similar to og gennies, they were great for simple flavor profiles like big fruits and tobaccos, but subtle things like complex tobaccos and multi flavor custards got lost.

    I've had the exact opposite reaction to the mesh coil. It seems as if I can now taste all of the flavors much better in my fireluke.

    Now that I have finally got the hang of TC I've found my Vandy Vape mesh RDA to be about as easy to use as anything with factory coils.
    I use fairly gunky juices so changing the wick on mesh is real quick compared to regular coils.
    I will probably get a mesh RTDA next.
    Flavour wise you either like it or you don't.
    Works for me. Some say it lacks something.
    I've been using mesh most of this year now as my main device.
    TC really moved things up a notch for me.

    I agree with both of you.

    I've been using the original Uwell Crown tank for 2 - 3 years. I love everything about it, especially the coils. In the last two +years Uwell has come out with the Crown II (totally sucked), Uwell III (mixed reviews) and Valarian (mixed reviews). I didn't bother buying those, because I was so happy with the original. If it ain't broke, why fix it?

    Geek Vape recently sent me their new Aero Mesh sub ohm tank to review. I've been using it the last couple of days, experimenting with different wattages for their mesh coils. I love everything about the tank itself, but I'm reserving comments about their coils until I've given them a fair shot because this is my first experience with mesh coils. So far, the flavor and vapor production doesn't stack up to the performance of the Crown's.
