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. 

Running 100W or using a 100W unit @ 60W @ 3.9v and .26? Did I miss something Sad

RE: question re: coil purchase
I must have lol..
 I was referring to that particular coil's stated wattage range from the manufacturer, I'd be very surprised to see it function well at the maximum claimed power. 
Your 3.9v through a .26ohm will be a comfortable vape for sure.

I love that configuration and everything about the vape, flavour, heat, etc.... just picked up a ceramic coil for it so will test and do a review on it...Good

RE: question re: coil purchase
3.9v on that coil is damn near perfect.

RE: question re: coil purchase
Current.  I don'thave much experience with ceramic.  What I have experienced has left me impressed though.

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. 

This is somewhat correct. However using TCR on advanced mods will get you a superior vape now. It takes some customization for TC to work effectively. When you get it right though the taste and the warmth of your vape can be set precisely to your likes. It isn't really just for 'dry hit' protection. It is for beginners but advanced users will use TC to get just the right vape for them. On a Hohmwrecker G2 I can set kanthal for the perfect vape with a little experimentation and a lot of patience. But once it is set it is better than power mode.

TCR is now used for Nichrome, Kanthal, Platinum, NI, TI and combinations of different wire in claptons and aliens. As you correctly stated Michael it is quite complicated and takes some practice and experimentation. It certainly is not for everyone. Now I am a mech guy primarily but I have a number of regulated devices and use TCR at times with my RDAs and often with my tanks - unfortunately some mods do not regulate TCR as well as others.

As far as ceramic coils go I'm not impressed with the taste on the whole. They are clean, last longer and hyped up now but the only one I have is used on my wife's Melo 3 - the Vaperesso .9 ohm coil which suits her watt preference - 18-20 watts. I'm curious to see how Fatboy fares with it. If he likes the flavor as much. I'm open to be corrected - I would love to hear about a really good ceramic coil. They strike me much like the notched Wismec coils - look good on paper but would never put them in my RDAs.

RE: question re: coil purchase
This is the first time that I have actually looked forward to a coil needing replacement so I can install the ceramic coil....stay tuned....I know I can probably switch them out and then reinstall the coil but I'm odd that way. Smile Okay odd in many ways but things always happen as they are meant to Smile
