Smok Spirals new coil design

I'm not really sure, but I think that Smok have redesigned their Spirals coils. I received my monthly order of coils (yes I go through around 5 coils in a month) and was pleasantly surprised to see they redesigned them.

A common complaint with the spirals is that their coils start tasting burnt within a week. Mine usually don't even make it that long, which was infuriating but it's my best tasting tank so I had to live with it. There was even a time when a coil only lasted me 1 day.

With my latest shipment of coils, it seems like they've addressed this issue. Below is a pic of the old coil and a pic of the new coil.

As you can see, they changed the <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>juice hole design – and it seems to work because it's been nearly a week and I haven't had a single bit of burnt taste.

Has anyone else come across these new coils? I can't find them mentioned anywhere on the internet – even Smok's own site only seems to have the old coil design.

I know there's a chance that these might be counterfeit coils, and if they are, I guess I'll be using counterfeit coils from now on lol.

Beginner looking for help please

I have done quite a bit of research (I have read the starter guide on here and also searched through the reddit) so far and partnered with a couple people I know that vape. I have been given some suggestions but would like the communities opinion also. I am not a smoker and will be getting into vaping to use 100% CBD <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>juice to help with stress and anxiety. This is what I have been told so far

Wismec Reuleaux Gen3 with Smok TFV8

Vaporesse Revenger Starter Kit (concerned about finding coils)

Voopoo Drag with Smok TFV8

Smok Alien Starter Kit (this reddit seems to really dislike this brand)

I will also use fun flavors cause the taste is pretty incredible in the small sample I have tried. I was also directed to purchase the CBD from buylegalmeds.com. Any help and direction is greatly appreciated.

If you do not like the suggestions I was given, please add what you believe would be a good kit/build for me. Thank you.

Genuine Kayfun v5 resistance all over the place

Sup guys,

so i have a genuine kayfun v5 and it's getting annoying. The resistance goes around in wide circles each time i re-screw the atomizer to the mod. I have 4 mods in total and each have a problem with this. so let's say you set up a coil that you know for sure is 0.5ohm ( just for argument's sake). now you put it on your mod and it goes 0.7, take the kayfun off, put it on: 1.2 this time, do it again: 2ohm. shake the atomizer and slap it with your hand: 1.6 etc etc etc. each interaction with the atomizer changes the value of the resistance as does the tightening and loosening of the <a href="http://www.vapininthecape.com/eliquid_c_7.html”>juice control. What i do now is i calculate the approx. resistance of the coil im putting in and just toy around until i get close enough to that value. it's been doing ever since i got it, maby a month or two.

at first i wrote it off as having shitty mods, i primarily use SMOK stuff and i have an rx200s, but today i got think vape's DNA75C and it's all the same.

i went through a couple of coils already making super sure to tighten everything down properly as i go. The only thing that seems to make a difference is the bottom screw: if i tighten it down really tight the resistance goes bonkers ( 2.5 ohm and such) then i loosen it up by 1/4th of a rotation and it often puts it in the vicinity of real resistance.

so how do i go about this? every single one of my mods do it and i went to a friend and his do the same. i never had a problem like this on any of my other atomizers.

Serpent RDTA chimney build

While the Serpent RDTA is really really good with flavor, I wanted to see if I can make it even better. Ran across Rip Trippers chimney build on a vertical RTA and figured it would work with the serpent RDTA due to the bottom airflow design.

Always used SS on my Serpent and have rocked a variety of simple round wire builds on it (SS 22/24/26ga, 0.15-0.35ohm, 2.5-4 ID, spaced/contact) but was hesitant because this was my first “exotic” coil build. I did end up with a 24ga, 4 wrap, 4 ID spaced coil that was about the same size of the airflow channel, and wrapped a single length of cotton around it, dipping the ends in the tank holes after cutting to size and fluffing them up.

I’m going to say that I’m sticking with this build for the Serpent RDTA. Much less turbulence, even better flavor, and spitback is virtually eliminated due to the vertical coil placement. With the right amount of cotton the wicking is consistent, with the flavors also turning up better on my palate due to the increased wicking surface area – essentially the whole outside of the coil. And TC still works as expected!

It’s also a treat peering through the drip tip and seeing such a clean view.

Chimney build detail shots (as requested by /u/Machostallion)

I know the chimney build is a little old, but with more and more atomizers coming out with bottom AFC, I think I’ll be employing this type of build more often. Has anyone used chimney coils in their recent builds?

Up next – a chimney build on the Govad!
