    As someone who has tried the MFLB I can recommend it. Only reason I don't own one is I don't smoke weed that often and it's expensive for casual use.

    Tip top vape, don't know why I was worried about mechs, stay above 0.1 (I use between 3 and 5 anyhow) and its all good wish I had got one sooner.

    Looks good, lovely bit of kit. Wonder how that surface finish will hold up over time?

    One thing tho. With mechs, advisable to keep it above .3 ohms. Go lower than that and you'll pull more than 20 amps. Not good in a mech, especially a tubemech. There are a few batteries that will cope with that, but not many, and you have to be damn sure you've got a legit cell or you're taking a hefty risk. Even then, the cells that will cope will have very low mAh.

    I know you said you keep it above .3 anyway so all's good, and I'm sure you know this already... but... just in case eh? Wouldn't want you to lose a hand and not be able to play Squad

    Need some help, again.

    Just got a Goblin Mini V3 and it's damn near perfect.

    I am curious about clapton coils, Not sure if I can expect to get better life out of Claptons over standard Kanthol but I have to make/Clean coils constantly and it's a fucking chore.

    I am prone to tasting that metalic hit from a coil as soon as it's become discoloured so I only get a few days before I am stripping it all over again. Will a clapton have longer life ?



    So yea, will it last longer and how do I work out what Gauge to buy for a 30w/o.5/0.6 setup ?

    Claptons will have less life (juice works its way into the nooks and crannies) and you'll really struggle to get a clapton you like if you want to run at 30w - it's a big mass of metal and requires a lot of power to heat up, for reference I occasionally do a single 26/32 Kanthal clapton in my Tsunami and that wants around 50-60w to really shine.

    Are you dry burning the coils in between wicks? What juices are you using? My experience is some juices will just ruin coils and there's very little you can do about it, I tend to avoid them now.

    Yea that nail's it then.

    I kill Coils fast because of the custards and High VG Liqids I like. current one being https://www.smkd.com/products/indulge-ruby-30ml
    Yea I dry burn them and replace wool pretty much every refil because that metalic taste is just fucking horrible. I guess this is just how it goes.

    Saved me some money on Clapton coils so cheers



    Must ask but Meip pictured his current setup on the previous page and mentioned he runs a single clapton at 25w> is he just doin it wrong?

    Haven't used the tank, so it actually might be fine. But it won't solve your core problem, which is coils gunking up quickly.

    Try it and see, a spool of clapton wire is a fiver.

    You might also try a different juice with the same flavour profile - it's been my experience that almost anything marketed as 'premium' is loaded with sweeteners. I think Vampire do a rhubarb and custard flavour, don't know if it's any good mind as I'm not a huge custard fan.

    I dunno about Claptons yet since I've been running the same coils for months (SS). I can't even wtf changing wicks every refill, are you using an RTA or RDA? I'm saying this because in my RTA I only change wicks like once a month or so and I vape almost exclusively custards (American Desire range from VV), so you must be doing smth wrong.


    Fakeedit: found my setup: dual 317L SS 10 loop coils at 0.40ohm, TC mode 350*F on the XCube II.

    You can run claptons at 30 watts, if you use a very thin wire gauge combo. Overall tho, Zekk's right about needing at least 50-60 watts for standard clapton sizes (I run the same gauge as Zekk at 70).

    Changing wicks every few days is fairly normal depending on the setup. However, coil gunking is always a juice thing, not a build thing. Custards can be pretty bad if steeped until dark. I'm on a GVC clone at the moment that's at least 6 weeks steeped (soft caramel colour) and it'll kill a wick in 2-3 days easy. On the other hand, I get a Kreed's Custard clone from a friend at work that is very lightly coloured, I can get a good week + out of a wick with that juice.

    Biggest factor in gunking is sweeteners in juice. Even small amounts gunk a coil to shit; heavily sweetened juices can kill a coil in a day. Most of the juices available online and in shops are heavily sweetened, but there are a few vendors out there that make a point not to use them (they're not needed if the juice is done right).

    Tanks are a little more prone to gunking as they're generally a little hotter than a dripper (all that heat in a small chamber). Temp in general is another factor, the hotter it is, the faster it'll gunk.

    @ Cosmin a month is pushing it, surely the flavour must be pretty poor after a few weeks? Not to mention all the nasty, molecules-repeatedly-superheated-until-carbonised shit that builds up, some of which you are guaranteed to be inhaling!

    Once a week, or sooner if the coil is heavily gunked, is a good level imo. Avoid lots of build up, if only for the potential health impact of inhaling month-old nasties. And seriously consider looking out for juices that don't use sweeteners - that's where you'll notice the biggest difference.

    Here's hoping that custard I linked is a good one then as it's my first for a while that wasn't a dark colour. So far so good.
    New tank is 10x easier to build on being that much bigger so I intend to experiment with a couple of different coil setups.

    I think it's just a combination of me being super aware of that taste you get, I take some pretty long tokes on it which makes it heat a lot and obviously my liquid choice.

    I had initially wondered if the Clapton's would produce a better kind of heat figuring if the coil had better surface area it may not reach such a high temp so quickly and hopfully improve gunking rate. But a clapton having lots of little nooks and crannies as Zekk Pacus said might mean I had this all a bit backwards.
