Wattage effect on burning
I'm kind of new to vaping, but getting more interested in how it all works. 
 
I have a question about coil wattage and it's effect on burning.  I am gathering info before attempting to build a mod, and I should understand this before proceeding Huh.
 
In my Halo Twist, 3.3 - 4.8v, I use a 3.2 ohm coil with good results... no burning even if I go up to 4.8v (= 7 watts?) although taste isn't great.  I have also tried using the 2.2 ohm coil at 4.8v (= 10 watts?), and it burns as I was told would happen.
 
Why does 10 watts in my Triton causes burning, while my sons EGO ONE (3.7v @ .5 ohm (= 27 watts?) not burn at much higher wattage?
 
Thanks for any insight!

RE: Wattage effect on burning
The design of the coils and wick basically. The higher the wattage, the faster the wicking material has to get the juice to the coils. If it fails to do this fast enough, you get burning. For higher wattage devices, most folks end up using cotton.

RE: Wattage effect on burning
a physically larger coil with physically larger wicking holes and obviously a larger wick, has more surface are to transfer more heat to more juice.  If you can't get enough juice to absorb however much heat you're putting it - burnt.

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

RE: Wattage effect on burning
All the above is true but another factor is airflow. If you can't pass enough air over the coils to scrub off the vapor and also help cool the coils you can get that burnt taste as well since it has nowhere to go.
