Coil for throat hit?
I have a wotofo serpent tank and an ipv D2 mod.
Was using some cheapo pre made coils for a while about £2.50 for 10.
After they had ran out I thought I would splash out on these

Not impressed at all. They give a warm vape but no throat hit at all.
My question is which coils would you recommend for throat hit?

I'm vaping 20 pg 80 vg at 8mg nicotine.

Coil for throat hit?
It's not just the coils, try upping your pg and nic content.

Dont think ull get any throat hit with that, you need nic or a throat hit enhancer from FA, do you actually get a throat hit with nic as you would fags?

RE: Coil for throat hit?
Did you change to a different juice when you changed to the different coils? Like SarahF said it's PG and nicotine that give the throat hit. 80VG at 8mg is always going to be smooth. If you switch to 70PG/30VG at 8mg or even 50/50 at 12mg you will notice a big difference.

What coils were you using before? Claptons heat up slowly compared to normal single coils so maybe that's the difference? Try holding the power button down for about half a second before you vape to see if it's any better.

RE: Coil for throat hit?
Thanks for your advice.
I've just made 100ml at 8mg and 20vg 80 pg using 72mg nic base.

Any idea if I can add to it to balance it out? For more pg and nic, if so how much shall I add and what ratios?

Thanks.

No don't get throat hit. It was a bit better with my old coils though.

Been vaping for 4 years and I thought vg gave the throat hit.

No, it's PG. If you're after hit rather than volume, I'd go for a thinner, hot running coil. I have some rebuilt mini protanks with 0.3mm Kanthal (single wire, no clapton) 1.6 ohm NR-R-NR coils, just under 2mm ID, and the throat hit is sharp. MTL with 50/50 20mg juice at 15-20w.

Flavour also matters - I find fruit juices sharper than custard, for example.

Add 72mg PG nic, PG and flavouring to the juice you have? Flavouring is nearly always PG based.

Hi

This is probably common knowledge but if your pg/vg/nic are there or there abouts, slight adjustments in your coil hight works wonders.

Closer to the deck = more flavour more clouds but less throat hit
Higher up = less flavour less clouds but greater throat hit.

Around 1mm-2mm is a good range to be.

Hope this helps bud

Ash

Ps. I get great throat hit with 9mg nic 60/40 vg/pg with the coil around 1.6ml from the deck on a a spheroid v4. Really nice vape Smiling
