    The BDC (bottom dual coil) is an older technology whose two heating coils are located horizontally at the bottom of the tank. I think it used silica string as the wicking medium.

    The BVC (bottom vertical coil) is the latest technology whose heating coil is positioned vertically in the tank. It uses organic cotton as the wick.

    The BVC was hailed to be a significant improvement over the BDC for Aspire.

    My experience;
    BDC = 5/100
    BVC = 95/100

    Aspire released BVC very soon after BDC - coincidence? Or they realised flooding and /or dry hits were going to lose them friends.

    If you are thinking of swapping them for your Nautilus, they won't fit. Triton coils are an option tho.

    Welcome to the forum. There was a time when Aspire BVC coils were absolutely raved about on this forum, they were said to produce joyous rapture with the stupendous flavours they produced. That wasn't my experience and they soon became TIB (thrown in bin) but that's the thing about vaping, it's all about what works for you. Happy vaping.

    @SunshinePete

    At least the BVCs got a chance to bat a season or two before becoming TIB for most people.
    The BDCs were expelled from the league after two games. Nobody could live with their obnoxious behavior.

    TIB. :D I'm loving that.... :thumb:

    I have some BVD coils that I bought by accident early on that coincidentally like, fit an odd tank I bought early on to match a really weird mod I bought. It's like a 7 ml tank, I do not use it all that often any more and I am a MTL vaper but honestly I didn't think they were terrible at ALL and it was kind of a "heavenly accidental match" for a while.

    I should dig that tank out for a whirl, come to think. LOL.

    I think BVD is something else Anna, best not discussed on here.
    Unless you have found an interesting product we don't know about.
    7 ml mind you.... that is an EPIC tank! :)

    And I was beginning to think I was the only one one on the planet who actually liked the BDC.

    I have 3 aspire clearos in rotation. One 1.8 BDC and two 1.6 BVC. The BDC has a touch of sting to the TH compared to the BVCs. But I like that.

    Well whatever I called it, consider it retracted. LOL. I don't even want to know, but I have spent too much time today talking to my kid, my brother and tending to the monthly Food Poisoning of the Husband.

    I'm going to start an app to track it because I SWEAR it's like once a month. I'm going to call it the Indigestible Regurgutated Rabbit. (The app I mean.)

    I'm also wondering if the husband's fear of poisoning is less about his choice of women, and more about like, the amount of food poisoning he gets.

    Same pizza, and yes, I thought it was probably some of the worse pizza I've ever had, tasted like a cross between a pizza, a quesadilla and an old boot, but I am totally FINE. I did think, as I was eating it, "Yeah, that's not going to work out well for the husband," and yes, I like that coil.

    I like the tank, too, but I have learned (it is very MTL) to fill it up halfway or the eliquid in it goes bad like, before I can vape it all. LOL.

    @stols001 If I had a 7ml 'tank', I'd be trying to get some more action. BVD... that was genuinely a great mistake... you have cheered me up Anna. :)

    It is probably some "Mr. Grey" type activity and I am AMOST tempted to POST the tank so you can laugh more. IN FACT I HAVE IT RIGHT HERE. LOL The BVD tank the drip tip is cut off in the picture it's about 5 inches long.

    There you go @djsvapour. LOL.

    I've seen bigger.

    (At the swimming pool)

    Lots of swimmers vape... it's obvious. Like the Swedes with their steam baths. Anywhere there is vapor, there must be vapers.

    That's my excuse anyway for huge custard clouds. :D
