Well, I not exactly sure what coil on the Atlantis. 30 watts in the Istick. It's not really that bad. One cough and that's it. But I have discovered that there is 10 times more flavor inhaling instead of just puffing. A.Jaded what are your thoughts?

You were right on the button. I reduced from 30 to 25 watts and it IS! easier to inhale.

RE: Hello all! New to Vaping
All good suggestions above, Jerry. My 2 cents is to get the 50w iStick and an Arctic atomizer with .5 ohm coils. The Arctic is flat out the best vaping experience I've had. I can't even think how it could be better. It's that good!

I use zero nic juice as well and am a cigar smoker. I started vaping to avoid sitting outside for an hour in the dead of winter in order to enjoy my vice. Big Grin

RE: Hello all! New to Vaping
LOL!! I Know what you mean. I live in Florida so winter was not a big factor, but I did stand in the garage a lot. Also the cigars I prefer run about $10 each. Drew Estate and Padron. So it was adding up. I like your suggestion..thanks. Still having trouble with my virgin lungs. Never inhaled before.

Question about the forum. How do I change my password?

Jerry. We share the same taste in cigars! Those are two of my favorite brands. I also love Acid cigars. My fiancé bought me a box of Acid Opulence 3 stogies this past Christmas. I have 3 or 4 left and I dread running out of them.

Yessir, here's a link: FAQ Section

I have to disagree with the people saying that the higher power iStick would be a waste. This is simply not true. Think about it: the iStick 20W costs about $40, the 30W costs about $50, and the 50W costs about $60. You might wonder, why should I spend that extra $20 to get all that extra power that I won't need? The answer is this: if you buy the 20W now and then decide later that you want to start sub-ohm vaping with higher power, you'll need to buy a whole new device to handle it. Whereas if you spend $20 extra now, you'll have a device that allows you to upgrade, and you'll get much longer battery life in the meantime. Battery capacity is measured in mAh (milliamp hours) which are just a measure of how much power they can store. A 20W iStick has a 2200mAh capacity, while the 50W iStick has a 4400mAh capacity. This means that if you're using both at exactly the same settings, say 15W with a 1.8 ohm coil for example, you'll be able to go twice as long between charges with the 50W device. That in itself is worth the extra money, plus like I mentioned before, you'll save in the long run over buying two separate devices. 

Of course it's up to you to decide what your needs are, but if you're considering going sub-ohm in the future I'd definitely recommend getting the 50W now, and even if you don't want to sub-ohm ever, it's still worth it in my opinion for the extra battery life.

It also takes longer to charge and is also bigger to carry - if he is going to sub ohm he will really have to go for a 100W mod and do it properlyLol2

RE: Hello all! New to Vaping
ECignut..I completely agree with you. I fly model airplanes as a hobby. I usually go right to 4 cell batteries. More flying time, more power, why buy 2 cell then 3 cell, and waste that money. For now though the 30 watt Istick seems good for my beginner needs, I am definitely interested in the 50 watt setup. By the way...can you explain sub ohm for me?

I can't - I don't do it - all I know is that the coils used are under 1 ohm - hence 'sub ohming' you need a tank to take the coil - the Atlantis is one of many.You also need a good powerful supply of Watts - I would say at least 100W. most sub ohmers use mods that you buy batteries for there are many of these some of which cost a lot of money. They make 'much smoke' as the American Indians would say. Much smoke means more juice more juice means even more money you also need a battery charger - more money again and the special batteries are not cheap either - more money again. The large amounts of vapour are not for me - I like to see where I am going. You would also be well advised to learn as much as you can about electricity high wattage is not a play thing - there are many well informed people on this forum and I am sure they will advise you far better than me - they are a good crowd and pleased to help - you have come to the right forum for that - best of luck - don't blow yourself up.
