Best value for quality coils
Hello all,

New member.  I just purchased a new Aegis 100W mod kit and would like to know from the group where would be the best place to purchase good quality authentic coil replacements.  An ebay site would be ideal for me.  I learned the hard way that there are some poor quality knockoffs out there.  I bought a 5 pack of "TFV8 Baby / Big Baby Beast Coils V8 / Q2 / X4 / T8 lot".  I received Chinese knockoffs that would not thread properly and just looked awe full.


Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

I ordered them from Fasttech, they are probably not authentic. So far out of 12 used, one was defective. Apparently the authentics have a significant failure rate as well

All Smok coils have a high failure rate - and a high price to go with them.

Precisely why I went with Clone Wars, the Failure Rate Strikes Back.

RE: Best value for quality coils
Thanks all.  Interesting to know!  The scary part about the crap I bought is that the threads have a problem and could ruin the tank.  I wish I had read the feedback from previous customers before I bought.  My bad!  So I need to find a product that at least mates with my unit and I can expect some failures.  Thanks again for the help!

RE: Best value for quality coils
I think it costs me about .4 cents to wind a coil from 26 Kanthal, 6/5 wrap, 2.5 mm, for .7 ohm.
