Thanks Paul.

Did you get the Kanger Protank 2 or the Kanger Protank 3 v2. What's the diff?

What kind of resistance is best for the coils? 1.5ohm - I have no idea.

I'm pretty sure I have it all the time Doug, even switching up juices and trying to drink more water to keep from getting dehydrated.

I can't say I've noticed a big smell or taste difference yet myself.

@Paul, that's a nice kit you got there, good price too.

Did you shake the juice bottle up real good before refilling the tank ?

Usually only when you receive them would it be good to shake them up real well.
Never know how long they were sitting on a shelf
Some have born dates some don't just like beer except for the shaking bit

The kit you ended up with is a bargain since I paid $42.95US at the vendor that had them in stock since most still don't have the V6 and want quite a bit more for the V5s still. A few others had the V7 and V8 models however but were a bit pricey. The prices are for the body with the 18650 battery tube included nothing else however. That still is a buy for you there! Paul don't knock it!

When speaking of the mini size eGo 350mah batteries I just got in the newsletter for one vendor having a 10% off Halloween special being typical and spotted a complete kit for those that includes a similar clearomizer ilke the Smok FBC but another model by the same called the Aro I had already ordered separately and found good for the small size.
Smok Mini EGo Express Kit

Something like that is good for quick jonts to a store or for someone new or simply doesn't vape as a sort of stocking stuffer while I had just ordered a pair of eGo CE5 1100 kits each with two batteries, two clearos, the ac wall plug and usb adapter. This one includes a needle bottle which is handy to have if you don't have one already. Actually I have about 4 or 5 plus a real good one being the Innokin 10ml stainless steel U Can you carry with you that has a cover as well over the usual plastic bottle with needle tip. These are handy for filling awkward tanks and clearomizers for sure. Innokin Ucan Stainless Steel E-Liquid Bottle

As for the dry tongue situation I mentioned earlier about that in the thread that PG has a tendency to dry you right out and why having either a glass of water or another beverage with you when going to vape a lot will be a big help! Plus not every puff regardless of tank, battery, mod, ohms, watts, volts, etc. will be the exact same all the time! If you go back for a second puff too soon sometime there either won't be enough ejuice in the coil or atomizer or you may have a dry wicking event for the top or vertical coiled clearomizer or tank in use.

I've run into that quite often until I start getting into better tanks namely the bottom coiled clearomizer type and lately the BDCs which are dual coiled. With most tanks when going to order them separately SIW you can look to see if the vendor carries replacement coils, atomizers in various ohms. Depending on individual preferences you often end up going by the flavors as well as source of e-liquids you vape as well as how you are set up. Here I run with 2ohm coils in the Tumblers for example while many vendors only carry them with the 2.4 with the 1.8ohm option in their replacements.

On the Vapors Tongue thing, looks like the its been resolved.
We discussed it a bit here, but as a recap from what Ive experienced personally and info we gathered collectively through the thread:

It happens the most when you are first switching. It seems what causes it is your sense of taste returning and getting overwhelmed or "burned out". Its not really your taste buds though.
Its also rather common.

It used to happen to me all the time. What helped me alot, was a flavor rotation.
I try to have 3 different flavors. But at least 2 throughout the day.

In regards to these flavors, try to make them drastically different from each other. If you vape a fruity type flavor often, lets just say Strawberries and Cream, then a second flavor ideally should have no strawberry or cream notes in it.A tobacco, menthol, cinnamon or other bakery type flavor would do the trick. Just make sure they are very different from each other.

If for example you vape Deadly Sin all day long and get the vapor tongue. Switching to something like Cinnamon danish may be effected as well due to the bakery cinnamon notes.

Drink LOTS of water when vaping. Believe it or not this helps too.

If you have 2 tanks set uop with drastically different flavors, swithching off will help. You'll likely be able to go back to the other flavor after 30 minutes or so, maybe an hour and all will be well again.


And, one other little thing that I read about that does help a bit. Don't laugh!
When it happens, take big deep breath of some fresh coffee grounds!! Not used, but fresh. It kinda shocks your sense of smell/taste back into action. Weird, but does work.



As time goes on,. it will happen less and less. I'm finding it hardly ever happens anymore to me, unless I've been on a single flavor for a really long time.


And always shake your juice well. it does help.



@SIW
The Ohms on the coil will be mostly what range the unit recommends you stay in.
In short:
The lower the Ohms, the quicker the coil heats up, and the more battery power it uses.
The higher the Ohms, the longer it takes the coil to heat up but uses less battery power.

I think lower Ohm coils burn hotter too. But It may just be that they heat up a lot faster. I find at 1.2-1.3 theres little heat up time. Closer to 2 Ohm I find I take a quick primer puff to heat things up real good.

Which is better is ultimately a personal thing.
I know guys who what sub Ohm and guys who actually prefer very high Ohms and lots of power. (3 Ohm builds)


1.5Ohm is, IMHO, a really good spot. Fairly quick heat up time with good battery life. Just try a few in different ranges and you'll find what suits you in no time. We will all offer different advice on whats best here.
It may also make a difference if the head is a single coil or dual coil. Dual coils burn hotter, and you may find something like 1.8 or 2.0 is better for those. Or you may find you love a hot vape and want 1.5 or lower for them. I like a warm to hot vape myself.

That is what I did. I am only using two flavors at this time, so I will add more to the mix. Thank you

The resistance should be where your preferences are for the most part. You can have the exact same tanks as the next person but they want 2.8 if not 1.8ohm or lower depending on what flavor they are vaping regularly. For me tank design has a being as well as where the voltage and wattage is set. For a few I turn it up to get where I want to with 2ohm coils in Tumbler tanks for example while another flavor I ended up taking the tank off anythings variable to use on a basic tube mod running at 3.7v 4w instead.

With some tanks the 1.8ohm will put and give you the best flavor as well. With the next tank 1.5 works out best and is what comes preinstalled on the tank. For Tumblers many vendors sell them with 2.4 while more are now carrying them with 2ohm instead due to how that tank works. The higher resistance from the 2ohm called HR or standard tends to vape warmer taking the extra time to heat up when compared to a 1.8ohm coil on the same tank where the vapor increases but the flavor drops a bit.

As for BDC tanks those that have dual coils I swapped out the 1.8 on a couple of tanks and regretted it when putting in the 2ohm i ordered separately! The taste got a bit warmer despite the slightly higher resistance since often these coils can be used on multiple tanks even by other brands where this can be a problem at times!

Some Kanger coils for certain models will work on Smok tanks and some Smok coils will work on Kanger. Not too many however but the individual tank design varies as well as vaper preferences being the other factor. This is why when I recommend a certain tank to someone I also let them where a good place to get replacement coils can be found since what comes with the tank may not be what they need. Turning volts and watts up of course will not only go through battery life a little sooner but also go through the flavor you have it the tank.
