question re: coil purchase
Hello all!

I want to purchase some 0.3 heads for my Melo 2 tank and came across this site. Can you tell me what the difference is between the 0.3 kanthal and this one in terms of performance? I wasn't sure if going from 0.3 to 0.5 would make much difference and how so (??)

thanks again for the help!

I don't use the MELO tanks...on my Nautilus tanks (Aspire as well as eLeaf mini) I use Aspire BVC 1.8 ohm and on my eLeaf 100W I use the crown tank UWELL DUAL .25 ohm coils...

RE: question re: coil purchase
The voltage range that can be used is the biggest difference, how that relates to the vape of the melo I've no idea as I don't have one. A .5 would normally suit a 30w vaper
The claimed 100w on the .5 seems a reach, over 7v to get it there is well over where I'd put a dry hit to be likley.

Thanks so much gentlydoingit* Great info! I went ahead and just ordered the 0.3 Kanthal ones for now. 2 five packs + shipping was $23

Those are the ones that came with it that Ive been using. 

Is temperature control vaping something a newbie should try or would it be best to wait? Do you like Ni or Ti better?

thanks!

RE: question re: coil purchase
I personally think tc sucks, others disagree.. what we all agree on is it doesn't produce the same cloudage, it's harder to set up and Nickle poses concerns about its suitability to vaping.
While using a tank it's got go reason to be used imo

Thanks for your straight forward opinion! Appreciate it!

For now, do you think I should stick with my current set up? Im happy with it and don't really see any reason to switch. 

Also, gentlydoingit*, why do people like to tc vape? Is there any part of it that would make it preferable in your opinion?

take care!

One of the things I have learned Rick has been that the mod being used is a huge part of it, another is the tank -- then add the different coils, different voltage, wattage, etc....each single different configuration changes the outcome and end result....then to to keep things simple yet super complicated for someone new, include the nic level of the juice and the juice itself...

I have realized that a juice that tasted great at the shop tasted NOTHING like what I brought home....I started doing some analysis and root cause on WHY the variance... the above are what I came up with....

i.e.: yesterday I purchased OMC (Oh My Custard) from Toronto Juice Co described on the site as the juice for the Custard-Craving Canuck. Creamy Vanilla Custard that rivals the top international brands. 35%PG/65%VG --- I sampled it there using the mini eLeaf, with Nautilus tank - loved it! Brought it home and started by filling my other mod and tank - didn't like it at all....filled my Nautilus tank, used my eLeaf mini and LOVED it again...even dropping the W and v on my eLeaf 100W on my crown tank didn't bring the same awesome taste....similar with a few of my preferred choice juices...

Okay sun is out, heading outdoors to enjoy the afternoon...

Err.. the only use for it I can see, is to combat the 'dry hit'. If you're using a dripper it has its uses I guess, in a tank I just can't see why you'd ever need it, unless you do something really silly you'll not get a dry hit. 
I suppose in theory if you don't like a warm vape you could adjust to suit, but that's the same thing as turning the power down on a normal coil.

RE: question re: coil purchase
If you want to go TC, get stainless steel coils; Ni and Ti both have a (low) possibility of secondary health concerns.

I'm also in the "dislikes TC" camp.  The tech is just not up to the expectation.  They don't hit as consistently or as well.  The reduced chance of a dry hit is nice, but if you're anexperienced vaper who knows how to manage your gear that's not really an issue anyway.

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

RE: question re: coil purchase
I'll agree with these guys, TC isn't all its cracked up to be. The problem as I see it is that TC is much more complicated, but only really appeals to beginners. TC is great in theory, since it would help beginners to keep from getting dry hits. But in practice, it's much more complex and difficult to use, so only experienced vapers have any chance of getting a good vape using TC. But most experienced vapers don't need TC since they already know how to get the most out of an ecig without needing the "dry hit protection" that TC offers.
