Another good question. I can’t believe the number of manufacturers that don’t sell TC compatible coils while their mods boast TC. Per re-wicking, I surly would give it a shot. Looks like you could easily re-wick with the coil in place. At least from the picture.
That’s what has me nervous though… If it’s not being (what I’d consider to be) properly secured in place by either screws or some sort of clamping system (as opposed to simply a compression fitting, as they’ve apparently done here), then potentially even liquid between the 'compression fit points could throw the resistance readings off (as I recently experienced with my Theorem, having gotten liquid between the insulators and the chassis).
Why, what happens to them if you try?
I’ve never tried because I think it’s way better/cheaper to make my own coils… but I always thought they looked quite handy to have. I kinda like this system and I do hope it works well.
<-original notch coils
Who knows, these may be the same way. 316L was the normal construction of those previous coils. Then they evolved into mesh coils, which is difficult for RDA.
These new notch coils may be SS, They dont give that information yet.
From Joyetech, they just added the product page for the coils themselves, with all the same info from the tank page, but included this. Inner rows seem wider than the OG Notch Coils, maybe, the video makes them look thin, so who knows.
I received one of these from Joyetech about 1000 puffs ago, I’ve been working on a review of the device.
It is possible to heat clean these coils in TCR mode, not wattage
they can be rewicked
They are made of SS304 steel and work in TCR mode
It’s much easier for me to just re-coil them with the factory coils, even though they are just a bit tedious for me to do that as they are like little springs that have to be slightly compressed to get into position. They do make a good connection in the deck, I think the NotchCoilsTM are gold plated on the ends as can be seen in Silly’s pic above. I find the RiftCore to be much better for cleaning and switching cotton wick to test juice, but this is a close 2nd. Prob not as good though as a single coil RDA.
When I pulsed power to the unwicked coil in VW mode the coil immediately glowed, a little too hot even at 15-20W. TC mode worked a little better to pulse heat and clean the coils. The coils seemed to deform cleaning them this way, so they were short after rewick and then they leaked. Or I would have to pull the coils to lengthen them, which didn’t work well. I wish the air inlet was raised up some off the bottom of the deck, or if it could redesigned to be a top airflow.
