RE: No more ceramic coils for me.....
I don't fully buy into that sintering, it is never completely uniform.

Besides, Uwell takes a bold approach here. Ceramic is the in-thing and in the middle of the wave they say sorry we don't do it, and we believe to have reasons for our decision. Even if they easily could. Does not make you thinking?

Having said that, we also need to get rid of that cotton.

RE: No more ceramic coils for me.....
Given the costs, considering the lifetime of one ceramic coil vs a cotton coil of the same caliber; I would be skeptical as to their reasoning behind releasing such a vague, one sided argument against coils. It would appear to me that they see a loss of income when offering such a long-life product that doesn't cost that much to produce.

Yes, it is not uniform, I'm not saying it's something like a Diamond Lattice or something, but still, sintered Ceramic is quite awesome.

RE: No more ceramic coils for me.....
Especially for those who love their high VG e-liquids, I am not even convinced a long coil head life is that desirable generally. VG is very hygroscopic, moisture can mean mould forming. That does not have to be visible to the eye. May be in the UK that's not a problem but here is usually around 90 - 95 % rh.

It isn't really a problem in the UK - the RH is high when it is raining and it can rain a lot, but outdoors temperatures never really hit extremes. The all-time record for high temperature in Scotland is just under 31C.

That's useful and pretty much coincides with my thoughts.

Thanks MrT!

In July of this year Toronto hit 36C with over 30 days in 2016 over 30C....

And you get lower lows than we do. There are good things about being on an island - the sea around us moderates the weather to a huge extent.
