Hey guys,

I'm using an EVOD tank clearomizer with 2.2ohm resistance. I am very new to vaping and I would love for someone to explain to me what the differences are between the dual coil and single coil clearomizers and what sort of resistance should I be using? (I do not plan on dripping, just fill my tank and go is what I like)

Note: I have ordered another mod, Innokin iTaste VV V3.0 VW / VV 800mAh with a Kanger pro tank mini 2. But I am currently using an eGo c Twist 1100mAh with an EVOD tank 2.2ohm double coils.

I have read around and for some reason people prefer the single coil, but why?

EDIT: When do I change my coil? How do I know when to change my coil? I'm still using the same coil from when I purchased my evod tank. I have been vaping for exactly one week.

i've got both tanks protank 2 and protank 3 the pt2 is a single coil where as the pt3 is a dual coil and from what i can say is the dual coil has WAY better flavor but it does seem to burn through juice faster then the single coil. as for how long the coils last there is no definite answer i've had some coils last me a week and some other coils i've been using for 5 weeks now and they are still good as new. If your liquid starts to taste funny when you are vaping try to change the coil and if that fixes the taste then you know it was going bad. As for resistance since you are getting your iTaste v3 I don't think that really matters since you can adjust your voltage or wattage accordingly to your resistance of your coils but i would stay above 1.2 Ohm's not sure if the iTaste can handle lower then that but i know my vamo can't and I believe most mods can't go much lower then 1.2 unless they are mechanical or some sort of DNA.

Dual coil designs are just what they say they are, instead of one coil, there is 2 coils. You will get a much stronger vape from dual coil designs. Both more flavor and more vapor. As far as resistence of coils, if you are using a regulated device then standard resistence (2-2.5ohm) coils are the best way to go. Lower resistence coils are designed to burn hotter at lower voltages. You wouldn't be able to go lower then 1.8 with Kanger products anyway. You could always order one of each and see which you prefer.

When to change the coil? You should change the coil when you feel like you are no longer getting the good vape that you like. So when you are no longer getting the flavor or the vapor like when you first put the coil in. Generally coils will last about 2-3 weeks, I have been successful cleaning them by soaking them in vodka for a few hours and then rinsing them with warm water and letting them dry. I can get another week to 2 weeks out of them but that is about it.

Instead of Vodka, can I bathe it in rubbing alcohol and then rinse it with warm water? I think my taste buds decided not to work today. I get the same vapor just not as much flavor as yesterday. But than again nothing really tastes the same today for some odd reason. But I cleaned it and dry burned it just in case.

I personally wouldn't use rubbing alcohol since it is not safe for consumption. I just use really cheap vodka, you don't need much, the coils are small. I use a shot glass and put a bunch in at the same time. So I am only using up a shot of vodka every month.
