    Hello guys!

    So, after being using a Kangertech EVOD tank and an itaste battery for more or less two years, I just bought a Subtank Mini and a Eleaf iStick 30W battery... I'm running it with a .5 coil, and 15W... This is, for me, a completely different vape. I mean, this thing gets really hot vapor, which I feel it is burning my throat. By the way, I'm using it with Die Hard Vape's 5 I.T.P. 85% VG, 15% PG.

    I really don't know how to make a satisfactory switch from my EVOD to this new setup. Any recommendations? Here in Puerto Rico we don't have lots of people that know about vaping. Actually, I know none.

    Should I move the wattage down, will that burn my cotton? Should I use it with more than 15W? Well, thank you!

    More wattage = more heat. 15 watts shouldn't be too hot, that's low wattage for sub ohm. You might like the 1.2 or 1.5 ohm coils better.

    Start low, like 12 watts and work up to find where you like it. Open up the airflow and play with that a little bit. I have a few subtanks and I like the .5 right at 16 watts personally, with airflow fully open.

    Yeah and what he said, it would be a little easier transition with the 1.2 coil that came with, or 1.5 whatever one you got.

    Yes, lower the nic.That should help a lot. Apart from that, the subtank is developed for lunghales as far as I know. If you don't do that it can also become too hot for you as you don't draw enough air to cool the vape enough.

    Airflow wide open. Lung inhaling and also try to inhale a bit extra air at the side of your driptip when inhaling. Sort of don't close your lips completely around the driptip when vaping. Try all or a mixture .of some of the tipps here.

    The subtank is really nice, I'm sure you'll love it once you've got used to it. It is quite a step from your old device so enjoy it. Much more flavour and vape.

    UPDATE: You guys rock! I'm using the .5 coil and lowered it to 12.5 watts. 6mg nic. Now I'm not closing my lips fully. And the flavor and the experience is AMAZING!

    I know I still have to play around with it until I get comfortable, but so far, it is much, much better. Thanks!

    INHALE!

    HARD!

    It really cools the vape.

    It's a different world from the evod.

    I remember the day I first got my subtank. I've been in vaping bliss ever since.

    How much does your coils stay fresh? With the EVOD they lasted only one day for me. And they are sold in Puerto Rico for $5 each.

    $5 for a coil? Wow. These last a long time. It's hard to say depending on how much you vape. At the very least I'd say a couple weeks.

    Wow! That'll be great!
    And yeah, $5. It was almost like buying analogs, because they are $7.
    Have you tried this on RBA mode?

    Yeah I just started using it pretty recently. Works very well when you know a few little tips. The guy is annoying imo, but watch rip trippers subtank rba video. He showed me a few things in there that made it work great, like how much cotton to use and pushing the cotton in from the sides a little bit.

    I use the subtank mini rba deck. I build a 1.8 ohm coil and cotton for lower watt vaping. (basically I build it like a kayfun) I also swapped out the big drip tip for a more narrow one.
