    While I get more enjoyment out of Nano, I do like SMM enough to keep it in rotation for awhile.

    Sounds like I made a good decision after reading the last couple posts about the SMM vs the Nano. Picked up a Nano 2 weeks ago, but in the back of my mind I was thinking which one was better. Glad I decided on the Nano. I'm loving this tank.

    What kind of coils you peeps putting in the nano? I'm using a simple 1.2 ohm round wire and find the flavor very muted......should I be using lower ohm coils, or perhaps clapton or other exotic coils?
    Tried claptons etc. in some of my other rta's and am not really a fan, but if recommended for this atty I'll try some.

    I've been running 24 gauge 316ss at around .5 and getting good flavor.

    Where did you place coil? I get best results by installing center of post.

    I have it about halfway up the post, so it is in the middle/center of the post heigthwise...so I guess the same as you, I think I'll just pop in some different coils to see if I can get it too perform

    I use a 2mm coil with 28g SS or Kanthal 6-8 wraps works best for my 2 liquids. I keep my coil centered between the post holes too. Best flavor ever!

    I love my nano but I find that the smm is a bit better flavourwise. the nano seems to me to emphasize the higher notes (fresh) while the body of a flavour is well rounded vaping with the serpent. I use them both but with a slight preference for the smm

    I'm just the opposite. The fruit vapes are better in Nano, crisp and clean. In SMM they are deeper, but still good. I'll probably switch SMM to a dessert juice tank eventually.

    I edited my previous post as I mispelled emphasize(i'm italian and I just turned an italian word into a non-existing english one ).
    anyway i agree with you: fruits are crispier in the nano but the deeper notes are better in the smm. I like the freshness i get with the nano though i find that the smm gives the real flavour of the fruit.
    anyway both are very good tanks!
    ps: your idea to dedicate the smm to bakery/dessert juices is quite good

    I forgot to mention, my Nanos always have various types of claptons installed. I did get a new spool of twisted ss 316l I'll be trying out.

    My 2 liquids are Tobacco flavors. I just can't vape cakes and fruits for some reason. They don't taste like tobacco either, It just works for me.

    I've tried some tobacco flavors, after 3-5 days I set them to the side. They did taste very good. Not sure why I never became fonder of them. Something in the exhale would become a bit off.

    I just pulled the original coils that came with it out. I put in 26g SS Claptons spaced 6 wrap 3mm id at .48ohms. Enjoying it. Totally forgot to wrap the coil backwards.:confused: Well at least it's backwards for me..

    I've been playing around with the most suitable coil setup by trying out SS wire instead of kanthal. Tried standard, twisted and ribbon SS316, am i correct to say that SS wires give cleaner flavor? I mean, from all 3 types i tried i couldn't taste the same throat hit as what i had with kanthal.

    Btw, with your setup, can you advise how thick the cotton is? I've been doing 25mm dia. and just recently tried 30mm, however the vapor production just doesn't seem optimal compared to 25mm.

    Some people claim to taste a difference in taste between SS and Kanthal. I can't sense it at all. However, all my builds are with 316L as I can use them in wattage or temp control mode, and is as easy to build with as Kanthal.

    As to the amount of cotton, those numbers are confusing. Do you mean how much cotton for a 2.5 mm or 3 mm ID coil?

    I mean for 3mm (didn't realize that i typo-ed there). I'm using organic unbleached snuggly fit into the coil but the don't seem to be able to produce as much vapor.

    Try using a little cotton. Snugly but still able to move is about where you want it. Fluff and thin the ends before putting through the juice holes. It should be enough to fill the holes but not stuffed, if that makes any sense.

    There's no doubt it can make a cloud, but it's still a single coil tank with a relatively small chamber and not giant airflow, so clouds aren't its strength. However, flavor is superb.
