Hi gently - I am vaping with the Trident you sent me right at this moment - 9.8W on a 1.58ohm coil - perfect with about 3 times as much vaper as you would get smoke from a cig. I love this Toodle vaping.[Image: smile.gif]

RE: What's bad about high watt vaping?
Just my two cents worth.

Most people don't vape over 100W, like ecignut said. There's nothing wrong with going that high, provided you're doing it safely, using good 18650s or a LiPo mod and staying within the amp limits. The downsides of course are using up a lot of juice very quickly, potentially burning out coils or cotton quickly, and annoying people around you if you do it in public, which doesn't help vaping advocacy. 

I'm currently vaping at 100W on a pair of SS fused claptons, 28ga core with a twisted 40ga wrap at 0.28 ohms. One of my other mods is currently holding a Double Vision RDA with SS fused Claptons that are 24ga core wrapped in 32, which are fantastic around 150W and I can go up to 200W with them. I'm one of the odd people who likes huge wattage, and I know what I'm doing with regards to Ohm's Law and using the right batteries to power it. 

As for the 300W mods... They're cool, don't get me wrong, but they shouldn't exist. There aren't any 18650s in the world that should be used for more than about 50W per cell. So a four-cell mod should be around 200W, maybe 250W max. Going higher than that is too much stress for any batteries, period. If it was a 5 or 6 cell configuration, that would be a different story, but most people don't want a mod that massive so they cut corners by using too few cells for the power demand.

RE: What's bad about high watt vaping?
Yeah I never really heard of advanced vapers under 100 so I was a little confused. I have a little Kanger emus at 5w but that's mostly for discreet vaping in places it's not allowed lol

RE: What's bad about high watt vaping?
Hi TCZ - sorry to keep on about this but what is an 'advanced vaper' do you mean an experienced vaper - if you do then Michael was right on the mark with the safety aspect. Experienced vapers such as all the staff on the forum know exactly what the capabilities of their equipment are and if you read lots of their posts safety is mentioned more than anything else on this forum. The big problem these days are the beginners getting their hands on powerful mods without knowing what they are doing. Some of the 'starter kits' are frightening to say the least and do not help the reputation of vaping at all. Power has nothing to do with advanced vaping - experienced vapers are safe vapers however they may vape they have built up considerable knowledge over the years and this forum allows them to kindly pass this knowledge on to others to keep them safe as well.

RE: What's bad about high watt vaping?
I'm with Eddie. Don't get confused over what is advanced vaping. I just ordered a MArkbugs Gem for my stabwood box mod and I have a Petri subohm tank coming as well. Both will be vaped 30 watts and below (gem at around 20 petri around 30). All my squonks are vaped around 20 watts. These are my ADV devices. I consider myself an experienced vapor. I use high end devices that many don't even know exist - example an Apoc DNA 40 with the Markbugs Gem RTA.

I don't own a regulated device that is over 101 watts ( I have a Hohmslice which is 101 watts). I certainly have no 150+ watt devices anymore. It was a trend that I did not enjoy (I tried them all). I do own mechs and series mnods though but I've been slowly divesting myself of most of them as well. I find I would rather vape a Provari than a Kennedy Ruby. So to each their own.

Categorizing experienced vapors is not possible. We all have our preferences. This site will help you to define your own and offer assistance in vaping safely. I may joke about having a fountain nearby but I take safety seriously.

I need to wait a week or two to pay bills till I can get more coil, friggin $20 for a pack of 3 coils is retarded for the tank. 

Check out vapordna....They have smok coils in 4 and 5 packs for less than $20 I believe. And their customer service is top notch...Theyve not only replaced bad items for me but when I;ve gotten a bad coil they sent me free packs to make up for it. Good

I meant advanced as in people who have gotten into making and building Clapton, aliens, staples, etc. Those are the build I normally see people vaping at a high wattage.

Vapordna is a bunch of back stabbing 2 faced crooks. Don't do business with those thieving assholes!
