    First one is I have a coil that is registering wrong. I use a cool fire 4 plus.

    It is an aspire cleito. 4ohm coil. It registers really erratically. One moment it reads as. 52 then I unscrew the tank and it registers as .45.

    Unscrew it again and maybe 5.3 then 4.6...

    My two other tanks one the same and one Inokin sub-v both register correctly.

    Second problem is with my double drip coil sauce strawberry banana waffle liquid.

    No matter what wattage I vape it at in my other cleito tank that registers correctly it spits really hot. At 40 and 60 watts and anywhere between. It is high vg so shouldn't be doing it but it always has and I have 60ml I don't want to waste so need to find a solution...

    Thanks

      With your first problem, my guess is that coil has a short circuit. Prime a new coil and try it.

      Not sure what is causing your second problem. What is the recommended wattage range of the coil? I personally find that fruit flavors do best at lower wattages than you are using. Spit back is usually a sympton of a flooded coil.

        I read up about spitback and the advice was fire the atty for a moment before vaping. Seems to have done the trick. Also up the wattage. Will run through the liquid more but actually really brings out the caramelised banana in that liquid so cannot complain

        The errant coil is now reading .43 so I'll keep giving it a chance though it is only vaping so so

          Coils, and not just SS do fluctuate wildly with heat, in fact I think that's how TC WORKS.

          Kanthal, I always forget if it fluctuates MORE rapidly or less rapidly but that is why it can't do TC, apparently. Etc.

          Your coil may or may not drop back down, but don't freak out if it does... or doesn't. That's not a huge change, it's not a big deal.

            And worn out coil. When spitback starts is because the cotton is worn and wicking too much.

              Play with the wattage and find the point where it doesn't spit and work from there. Remember that air flow determines the final heat of the vape. Start at 20W and work up to find the sweet spot for your juice.

              If all else fails, clean the 510 threads to ensure good contact. A paper towel works. Use your fingernail to press the towel into the the 510 threads on the tank, rotate the tank, and clean them well, then twist up the towel and insert it into the mod's 510 thread and do the same thing there.

              As others said, the resistance of coil wires, especially SS316, rise with heat. Air flow cools the coil to control spitting and popping. You have to find the balance point between heat, air flow, and juice feed. There's a sweet spot in there somewhere.

                Is brand new cleito coil. This juice spat on the previous coil too.

                Is just one of those liquids it's not spitting at 60 watts and tastes great that warm but a little harsh on my throat if I'm honest. Will get some mesh to put over top of tank as this is a nice liquid and i have 60ml of it so need a solution and read this is a good one
