    Hi. Quick synopsis. Long time smoker switching to vape. Used a V2 Pro Series 7 and made the switch over fine. However the V2 wasn't producing enough for me so I upgraded to an Aegis 200w w/ a SMOK Baby Beast TFV8 X-Baby tank.

    What I'm wanting to do is use this as a MTL with more smoke than the V2 but I don't understand the settings. I dropped the wattage down to 15 and I can't take a drag without coughing for 10 min. At that setting its producing less smoke than the V2. Please help out a noob here.

    Best wattage/setting for a 0.4 ohm coil to get decent smoke as a MTL. Or, should I drop the wattage more and open up the vents to do DL? I've tried both ways so far and as soon as the vape hits my throat I can't stop coughing.

    Well first that’s too low of watts for that coil the wattage should be between 40-80 best between 55-65. Next that tank/coil is not meant for MTL but instead DL. The airflow (as you call vents) is for the amount of vapor, while it will makes the draw more restricted it won’t give you the pleasure of a MTL. That tank and coil is considered a power tank (technically a sub-ohm). It will be hard for you too MTL that coil and tank without coughing(you should only DL on that setup). My best advice is to find a MTL tank, it will come with a MTL coil which is basically a higher ohm coil.

    I don't MTL, but my understanding is that to get a good result you need an atty that is designed specifically for MTL. The TFV8 is designed as a high wattage big airflow cloud chucker.

    I’m not a MTLer either, but my understanding is to do mtl in a drop in coil system tank you need a MTL coil, and while thy may be made, I doubt it comes with one out of the box. Maybe look for compatible coils that are over 1 ohm

    As has been said that tank is designed for DTL style vaping, nothing you can set, adjust or do to transform it into even a poor MTL style delivery device.
    Smok doesn't offer any replaceable heads suitable for MTL use in any of their baby/big baby/tf/ beast type tanks.

    What nic mg/ml & Pg / Vg ratio liquids are you using?

    Ps. It is vapor we inhale not smoke, unless you're doing very wrong.

    Save yourself some time and money...get the rba kit for the BB or buy a Zenith tank.

    Welcome to ECF btw.

    You can try the x4 coils they are a little more restrictive than the q2's and less watts. Sigelei makes a kaos tank with coils that fit the baby beast. They make a 3 core coil that's really tight draw.

    And even using the RBA is going to be a challenge because the coil parameters you need for a MTL experience aren't suited to how the RBA is designed to feed juice to the coil.

    It would be a fun project, but you'd need something to vape on while you work through the trial and error of making a MTL coil build work in a direct lung tank.
