Burn
So I have a triton tank and run a .4 coil but I can't run it over 20 watts without it being too much it burns. But I used a friends tank and ran his at 60 wastts. He has a Smok tfv4 with the triple coil. I got a much bigger cloud off of it and it didn't burn at all or make me cough. Is it juice? Or why would I be having trouble with mine??

RE: Burn
Hi bscjsh.
Could be the juice is too thick. 70/30 would be my choice.
When was the last time you changed coils?

RE: Burn
I have had trouble with the .4 coils in the past. Try a different coil. Also make sure you have the tank set on vape not fill. I found sometimes the cotton did not open to the juice properly with thew Triton. My tip is to use the Herakles .6 ohm coil - it fits - or the super tank coil and it vapes perfect in the tank. In fact a number of coils bewtter than the .4 coil fir the Triton. TBH, the Triton works the best with TC nickel coil but the other coils I mentioned are all better than the .4 coil. BTW, the coil is not meant to go over 30 watts. If you vaped it higher you probably burnt the coil already.

RE: Burn
The TFV4 is made for higher wattages, I use a TFV4 with quad coils at 80W and it's great. But most other tanks can't handle that high of power. The Triton is one of those other tanks, it just isn't made to handle that high power. Most of the time, you can find recommended power settings for any tank's coils, often times they print it on the side of the coil. Juice has a bit to do with it, in most cases thicker juice needs to be at slightly lower power than thinner juice simply because it takes longer to wick, but in general those recommended power settings are spot-on. So really, all you can do is vape yours at 20W or less like you've been doing, or buy a TFV4.

RE: Burn
On the odd occasion that I sub ohm the .4ohm coil in the Triton or Atlantis - same coil - is best at around 27W, above that the flavour starts to weaken. If you are using high VG juice the coil will have difficulty absorbing it therefore the cotton will burn. 50/50 juice is the highest VG I would go on ready made coils no matter which one it is. The Triton and Atlantis are not tanks you would go for if you want big clouds - it just doesn't happen. The same goes for the .15ohm TC coil for these tanks - you get even less vapour but the flavour is OK at around 470 F.

RE: Burn
Thanks for the ideas guys. My thought is I'm gonna buy a different tank. The triton came with the Pegasus box I have so that's why I use it.

RE: Burn
For clouds, the TFV4 is the very best. Unfortunately that also means it drinks juice like crazy. And the coils are expensive. If you don't mind paying a little more getting new coils and a lot more juice, then get the TFV4. If you don't want to spend as much on coils and juice, I'd suggest the Herakles or Arctic. They still make good clouds and can run up around 60W, just aren't quite as powerful as the TFV4 and their replacement coils are a bit cheaper.

RE: Burn
1 - try thinner juice.  80/20 and higher don't work well in most of the Atlantis family tanks.

2 - what resistance is your mod reading (if it has a readout), regardless of what the coil SAYS it is?  Sometimes they vary from the factory.

3 - somebody already mentuioned making sure it isn't set to "fill" - +1

BEST OF LUCK!

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.

I can get some different juice today right now I have 50/50. My ohm reading comes out at .41 and yeah I'm not on fill.
