How long should these coils last

I got roughly 4 weeks of daily use out of 1 coil. Try not to burn it.

I think the determining factor in a coil or coil heads longevity. Has a lot to do with, the amount of sweeteners in your juice.

Sweet juices will caramelize on the wire and "gunk up" the coil faster.

So, in reality "how long the coil head will last" is a subjective question. Ultimately, it comes down to the type of juice and how heavy you vape. But... To give you a rough idea. With a really sweet juice. You should be able to run 15-20ml's through the coil. Before you start noticing a drop off in flavor and performance.

The main problem for longivity is usually the wattage you use the coils at.

When it is dictated by the juice all coils last just as long as any other, assuming the heat flux is the same at the wattage they are used at.

Mine burn out in an hour or 2...
tried literally soaking them in juice.
tried 80pg, 80vg and everything in between.
Nothing helped.
Now i pop off the chimney and they last a day or 2.
Still going on the first t18 coil i got the same day (july 4th)

Seem to burn out quickly, after a tank or 2 I get a lot of burnt taste. Would appreciate any info as to what might be the cause, using 80% PG 20% VG juice.

Mine last over a week with 70pg. Around 6-7 days with 70vg before losing flavor and finally dry hits. I also run them at lower wattage when they are fresh but eventually land on 24w after a 4ml tank. I really like these coils.

Oh and I only use DIY juice, so no extra sweetener added.

I use sweet type juices and get anywhere from 7-12 days. Since I quit smoking I am saving serious money so a pack of coils last a month or buying from fasttech saves me a bunch of 💰. Beats those plaza shops who sell them at $13+.
