Did I buy the wrong tank for MTL?
Went into a vape shop looking for a tank and I tell the guy I need one for my first mod. I also tell him I don't know too much about what sub-ohms is all about when he points to Smok TFV8 Baby V2. He tells me all about the tank and how great it is, shows me how to fill it, etc. Next thing, I'm telling him that I'll go with it and I'm walking out with it. It says one coil is .17 ohm and the other the comes with it is .2 ohms. 

The issue of DL or MTL didn't even come up. I forgot about that and he didn't ask.

RE: Did I buy the wrong tank for MTL?
Innokin Zenith with the .8 ohm coil is a great MTL tank - it has a 1.6 ohm coil but that needs a bit of breaking in for the flavor to come through ( a few tank fulls). This MTL tank is better than the Berserker RTA or Ammit, IMHO. The Berserker is not bad but I would use a Nautilus 2 with the .7 ohm coil before the Berserker. I will rank a few of them below but these are all good.

1. Innokin Zenith
2. Vapefly Nicolas - this has more flexible adjustments then the Nautilus mini and decent coils so it edges it out.
3. Nautilus 2 (coils available everywhere)
4. Eleaf GS Juni (love GS coils as should any MTL guy) Any GS coil tank is good, BTW.

Any of the above four will provide an excellent MTL vape.

Prime example of a shop more interested in a sale, serving the customers needs and providing a good service is no good for the bottom line.

Vaping Saves Lives. To vape is to advocate..

Already covered on his other thread. Nautilus 2 and the Eleaf GS - with the 1.5ohm coil.

RE: Did I buy the wrong tank for MTL?
Now before you beat yourself up too bad, there are a few bright sides. Coils for that tank are readily available. It is easy to fill. And for a Smok tank, it's a decent performer. My daughter has been using it for 9 months now without issue and she loves it.

However, of course, it was never designed for MTL and will never work out at a lower power. So, if you choose to stick with that tank and go DL, you could have done worse.

There is the option of the diy deck , my TFV8 is generaly set up with 26g a1 coils at .4 alowing me to run at lower power and tighter air flow .
