TC mods
what are the pros and cons of a temp control mod?

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

RE: TC mods
Pros- They do temp control.
Cons- They cost more than mods that don't, pretty much.

RE: TC mods
Pros - none
Cons - expensive; coils are not up to the mark yet; too much footering about with both tank and coil having to be the same temp; understanding the 'lock in' procedure can be 'interesting'; not as much vapour with TC;
I have 4 of these mods - they are fine but I am disappointed in the coils and their performance.
TC will be great - someday - but not at the moment.

RE: TC mods
I'd like to try stainless on tc in the hopes the performance is better than other tc wire. Other than that it's completely useless. Tanks don't dry unless your doing something wrong, drippers are different but you should know when it's dry from experience.

Don't forget to apply for the freecycle section!

RE: TC mods
I'm completely with gently. Of course we both drip too and are used to a nice clean taste. So far temp has felt a bit muted and off for me. I much prefer my clapton coils or kanthal coils in my tanks. Also I'm not building my RBAs or RTAs with nickel wire. I do wish some of the new mods were just non temp and around 80 watts with dual 18650s. Some nice solid mods. I almost never use temp coils.

This is exactly why I went with the Sigelei 150 Watt Standard

RE: TC mods
Pros
- better taste
- vaping is remarkably more even + independent from the level of battery charge
- the vape temperature can be adjusted to meet the best of a flavour
- easier to achieve a nice warm vape with strong flavour without experimenting with coils, heads, etc.
- no more cotton burning, no more burnt taste ever
- significantly increased safety, even with unprotected high discharge batteries
- better taste from atomizers which produce better flavour at lower wattages, such as the Kanger Subtank
- freedom to choose if I like a temperature controlled vape or a conventional vape

Cons
- higher juice usage
- lesser clouds (but for me that's a plus)
- potentially faster battery drain, depending on settings and coil used


Why do some think TC needs the usage of preconfigured coils? That's certainly not so. Also, there are TC devices that allow TC with SS, for those who prefer this coil material.

TC device prices have dropped significantly in the last 12 months. I don't know if there is any significant difference anymore at all, at least here in Asia it's not so. TC also helps to get vaping out of that "nerdy" corner and make it a more common hobby. TC is the future, sure, if they don't manage to kill vaping before the future arrives.

RE: TC mods
lol the sigelie 150 is exactly what i want , gives plenty of room to grow without the need to upgrade again for some time . now i know not to bother with the TC

When life hands you lemmons , make lemmon aid . When life hands you coconuts , stuff them in your shirt and ask if they make your boobs look big .

RE: TC mods
I have not found that TC does not use more juice than a higher watt device. I know I will go through juice faster on my crown with the .25 SS coil on wattage than on TC. On wattage I want 70+ watts to get my taste. I find TC drains my batteries slower. Despite that I prefer the taste of a kanthal or kanthal clapton coil by far. I have claptons on both my bellus and my aromamizer and the taste is phenomenal and I do not get a dry hit at all. It is about how you wick and build. On pre built coils on all my sub ohm tanks I will occasionally get a dry hit. Even my nickel coils taste bad on my first few hits when the tank is cold. When i get a burnt taste it is time for a new coil or a rewick. No big deal.

I do not agree that the taste is better or richer on nickel. I find it quite the opposite. I prefer the .5 coil or an RBA on my kanger (well an RBA is my preference). I have the freedom to choose TC - I just do not choose it very often (when I am low on coils and when I'm too lazy to rebuild only). And you need to experiment just as much with TC as with kanthal to get the taste you want and the heat you prefer. In fact I find myself adjusting temp more than I adjust wattage.

So obviously different views from different people. Vaping is very subjective.

RE: TC mods
Pros - all depend on figuring it out and praying it works right.  Which it rarely does until you've fussed with it to the degree that you might as well be an expert at tuning your wattage.

Cons - Do I still need to list them..?  In addition to the problems with it just working as advertised for more than 2 consecutive hits, you can't use fancy coil configurations.  Or, you CAN, but the benefit is mostly lost.

Get a good "regular" setup and learn how it works.  Temp control is probably the future of vaping.  And once it gets good enough, I'll be on board.  To whit - I hated electric cars until I drove a Model S p85+, lol.

Remind one liberal per day, that laws affect only the law-abiding.
