Smok alien help
Hey guys in new here and somewhat new to vaping lol. I've been using 
the istick tc40w for a lil over a year (using 0.5 coils in a ijust2 tank and running between 22 and 32 Watts) just now getting the smok alien kit. I got 2 Samsung 18650 batteries for it. My questions are: what coils should I use and what wattage should I run at?

Hi Mad_dwarf Welcome to TVF. There is no easy answer to your question because we are all different. I suggest you try various settings until you find your sweet spot.

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..

Welcome...I have this kit with the baby beast tank and love it!!!!

I believe they still come with 1 T8 Core .15ohm coil and a Q2 Core .4 coil. The recommended wattage is printed on the coil in clear writing and easy to read. Link below shows all the coils available and their wattage settings.

Although both coils taste incredible, the .4 coil does use less juice than the .15 did for me anyway. Both have awesome taste and vapor production.

For anyone else....What happened to signatures? Mine is not showing and no signature option anymore in my options. Dodgy

RE: Smok alien help
Thnx for the input guys! Ill try the 2 coils out and report back. 1 more question: if none of the coils are designed to go over 100 Watts why have the mod be able to reach 200?

Because there are tanks and coils that can go well over 100watts that you can use on the alien. You don't have to use the included baby beast even though it's an awesome tank!

RE: Smok alien help
Welcome to the forum, this might help, Where should I set my VV/VW mod? And What the Heck is Ohm's Law?. Good articles that help me keep my wattage in range for my coils. I've been vaping 9 months now and been using .5 coils for most of it. Now I'm liking .3 @ 30W. But as others have said, it's very personal, the settings that work for me, may not do it for you. You'll have fun finding your sweet spot.

RE: Smok alien help
Wow ok guys I finally got my new mod put together.  Using the 0.15 coil that came with baby beast and vamping at 65 Watts this sucker packs a punch! Im using vaping sisters Vendetta (their butterscotch) nic 3 mg and got a buzz after 4 hits Lol. On my eleaf I could only enjoy menthol and fruit flavors at its low wattage but im happy to say I can enjoy more complex flavors with the alien/baby beast! 1 thing I learned though was not to over prime these coils like I had to do with the eleaf and crown coils. I tried that with this coil and it flooded Lol. Live and learn Tongue
