I got the Smok Alien 220w starter kit with Baby Beast tank and coils from Vapordna a few months ago. It came with 2 coil heads. I purchased a 5 pack coil replacement from them as well (v8 Baby Q2 0.4 ohms 40-80W/ best 55-65W) . During this period, everything worked fine. The stock coils lasted me 10-14 days. The puffs count usually says 2500-3000 puffs before I taste a burn and replace the coil. I set it on watts mode 50-60w. Never had a problem there.
Then I purchased 2 replacement packs from FastTech.com . While waiting for my replacement packs to arrive, I washed my 7 used coils and reused them once more. I was able to get a 2 day use out of each one (about 300-400 puffs).
When my new stock coils from FastTech arrived, I put them in and primed them like I always did, however, the coils would burn within 1 or 2 days. I set the watts to 37-40w, but still burns fast. I tried a coil from the 2nd pack I got because I thought maybe the 1st pack was all bad. But I got the same result. So I thought I wasn’t priming them enough, I primed the third coil very well, but same result. Just for the heck of it I tried a 4th coil, same thing. I went through 4 coils within 1 week.
So, I thought maybe they were knockoffs. I did an authenticity test from the bar codes on the back, and according to Smok, they were authentic.
Of course, I told myself that this is the price u pay for being a cheap asswhole. So, I went to a local vape shop and I bought a single coil head for 6$ because he sold the pack for $30. I tried it, but I got the same result. It tasted burnt really fast.
The million dollar question is why did things work out with my first 7 coils, but same kind of coils were shit later?
I used different juices on each one. None is too sweet.
I’m trying to remember what I did in the time between the good and the bad coils. The only thing is that I remember playing with the settings to see what Temperature Control is. But I reset everything to watts mode. I also washed the tank once.
Can anyone tell me what they think happened? I thought it was the coils. But I tried local store and FastTech, both same problem. Could it be the tank? Or is it the mod?
