I’m a big fan of the Crown 1 but they are getting harder to find. Sold out in most shops since a while.When the Crown 2 came out I’ve been reading lots of negative reviews about the coils. Has this problem been fixed? If you own a v1 and a v2, which one do you prefer now?
i had an uwell crown 1 , amazing…so then I bought uwell crown 2 … the stock 0.5 coils are super …the problem is that they die really fast… i am expecting now the rba for the crown 2. A friend told me that is not so good as the standard coils …
I haven’t seen many RBAs yet but none of them were as good as the stock coils. I guess it’s better to find a nice RTA as they have been designed with the manual rebuild in mind. Not a build deck that has to fit an existing tank. I can’t get any SS wire at the moment but as soon as i can i will try rebuilding the stock coils as discussed here a while ago. I really hope i can find a few more crown 1 or a nice replacement.
I have both, and to me the flavor is about the same in each…maybe slightly better on the 2? They have fixed the coils, and I like the airflow on the 2 more, seems smoother to me, but that might just be in my head. I also like the threading on the top, like push down and half twist to remove or replace.
I love the .8 coils around 30-40W has the best flavor to me. But I like my Crown mini for flavor too. They are both favorites of mine.
currently using the SE1 which uses crown 2 coils. IMO they work great and have a shorter break in period compared to the crown v1.They just released the crown mini so finding crown v1 coils shouldnt be too hard to find.
How fast is “very fast”? I hoped they would fix that problem…
I don’t really expect the rba to be great. The Crown 1 rba was very disappointing because of the lack of airflow. It makes the Crown 1 a completely different tank.
I poke holes in the cotton on the Crown 2 coils. It improves the juice flow just enough to let it wick better. Because I was getting burned coils and temp control kicking in too soon. Improving juice flow made it very nice.
@Bad_Influence, if you are having issues finding the stock coils check out this thread:
I am still using my crown all the time and had a buddy give me all of his old crapped out coils. Been rebuilding them a while now and they ROCK! Throw in some organic cotton and there is absolutely no break-in. Just flavor right off the bat.Not sure if you are in the US but with all the regs coming out, I wanted to prep some so I started looking into RTAs and RDTAs…Have bought a few, but still keep the crown V1 in rotation with the dozen or so rebuilds I have…
