Giving up on sub-ohming
After over a month of trying hard at sub ohming I am giving up the fight. I just cannot get used to the direct to lung inhaling - probably because I smoked for so many years. I cannot even get used to the wide bore drip tips. My 2 Triton tanks have now been fitted with 1.8 ohm coils for standard vaping and the drip tips changed so buying them was not a waste of money. I seem to be one of only a few on this forum who does not or cannot sub ohm and I was so looking forward to 'getting into it' - never mind standard vaping got me off smoking and 20 months down the line I feel a lot better for it - I enjoy my Nautilus and the minis and now have the Tritons to enjoy too. There are 2 wide bore drip tips and some TC coils and .4 ohm coils looking for a new home. I took them down to a local charity shop but they just looked at me as if I was daft and asked what they were for - I was not even going to try and explain after seeing the blank look on their faces.Huh

RE: Giving up on sub-ohming
I never could figure out why I would ever need more than I get from my 12 watts single coil running at 1.4 ohms.
I have 30 watts available but never go above 12 watts except to anneal a new coil or burn off my mineral wick occasionally.
I'll always be happy at this power and ohm level.

Hi RES - I use 1.8ohm coils so rarely go north of 9W. You need the power though for sub ohming and it is fun to make the big clouds. I just cannot inhale direct to lung - and I tried so hard. It is probably because I smoked for so many years and even after vaping now for nearly 2 years I vape exactly as I smoked. There must be more people out there in the same position - I cannot believe we are so few in number. What amazes me is that over the last few months more and more people are turning to vaping and jumping straight in to high power and sub ohming - if they smoked prior to vaping they would not be used to direct lung inhaling but they seem to get into it no bother. I am just glad I found the Nautilus - it is the tank that stopped me smoking.

RE: Giving up on sub-ohming
Look at an Eleaf GS tank with the plain 1.5 coils dialed at 14.5 watts, PERFECT tank and coil for lower wattages and vaping MTL, not direct lung hits. I had the same issues with sub tanks, UNTIL I found this one.

Thanks Whiskey - I will look at it - it will give me a change from what I have - which is always good and I will have to get another mod - I cannot have a tank without a mod.[Image: smile.gif]

RE: Giving up on sub-ohming
You MTL guys, lol. I sit here here happily lung hitting my VTC mini in bypass with a .2 ohm atty at 85 watts. Seriously though - you got to vape how you like. The idea is to stop smoking. So if the sub-ohm is not working then by all means use the nautilus or GS tank. You will use less juice and your battery will last longer.

So - does this mean that if the Nautilus or GS is not working for us by all means sub ohm[Image: smile.gif]

RE: Giving up on sub-ohming
I'm so happy sub-ohming, I really feel for you guys who can't get the hang of it. But I support your decision and will fight to the death for your right to be normal... or whatever.
