MTL coil cleaning. (DTL can play too. Just choose the last option as well.)

Shocked MTL coil cleaning. (DTL can play too. Just choose the last option as well.)
Attention all Toodle puffers!

I have some serious questions. Rtfm



Do any of you vape high VG juices?

Do any of you vape custards regularly?

How do your coils look after a couple days of tight toodle puffing?

What wattage and ohms are typical for you?

How often do you need to rewick so it doesn't get nasty in there?

If you don't mind it nasty in there and still vape it, how bad is bad enough to clean that thing up?




I have found that I really like MTL vaping and now on the tightest hole in the VV Berserker RDAs AFC. Unfortunately for me, it looks like it will be a labor of love. I find my coils get a buildup so much faster with MTL than with DTL and a lot of airflow.

I vape custard and high VG juice all day.

My build so far is a 3mm 1.5ohm that I will preferably vape at around 13.5 watts, but dropped down to 11.1 to see if that will help with the coil gunk issue I am having. If it doesn't then I will go back to 13watts.

I mean, if I have to clean and rewick the thing every 2 days then I will still MTL because I love it. I just want to know if that is the way it is.

I can introduce more PG but will try that slowly because I do not know how much I can take. Anything over 30/70 has made me cough and have some dryness and irritation before. That was a while ago, but I have been doing my own thing with the max VG for a while.

Jeesh! I didn't intend to have you feeling left out and stuff.

You can play too TW. Heart
Doesn't it show who's voting when I look at it? I will add another choice that says "I DTL only but still want to play.". You can chose more than one like I did there, just add that too and it won't mess with my numbers. I will just have to subtract you! ROFL

I think it is the lack of open airflow that is causing my coils to get cruddy faster, so that is why I posted the questions!

Thanks for your input Chuck!

Can you tell me whereabouts how long a tank usually lasts?

Hahahaha! Thanks for sharing.Sarcastic_hand
I vaped that wattage on the below shown coils, sometimes went higher to 77.7 though. It is funny because the first time I used that coil app and made those coils with it, my puff counter on my Smok Majesty mod said 666 so I just rolled with it. It was a comfortable vape, but I would crank it up if I wanted faster vapor.[Image: OaBohJe.png?1]

Thanks! I wish I could vape freely at work. Dodgy

The crud is sweetener.

Even concentrate has sweetener, vg plays it's part right enough but the sweetener is the killer.

I don't vape any sweetener if I can help it, I rewick/coil weekly/ten days or so.

I don't mtl.. and I can't vote on mobile version Sad
