    Hey y'all podmeisters

    I'm searching for the Holy Grail...the longest lasting pod coil.

    I manage to squeeze a week till a week & half outta my Breeze coils (both 1ohm & 0.5ohm) using nic salts @ 25mg.

    Looking at switching to new pod device with good battery life but the coil life (before replacing) is key.

    Suggestions?

    The Aspire Nautilus AIO has a 1000 mAh battery. The Nautilus BVC coils have been around for many years and are long lasting. They do have a coil for nic salts too.

    Hi @herb1

    Good thread and am following this with interest.

    I don't know the answer but what I have observed with commercial coils (not necessarily pod coils) is that coil life does depend quite heavily on the juice being used. If I use a lightly coloured fruity menthol I typically get much more life than a deep rich sweet dessert or a NET tobacco. They tend to reduce the life greatly and clog up the coils.

    But juice aside I would also be interested in finding out which pod system has the longest lasting coils. I don't know but would assume that if there are any ceramic based coils they would probably last quite long?

    Only know about the C Cell2 ceramic coils for the Vaporesso Cascade, but that's a sub-ohm coil.


    Vaporesso Aurora Play Pod System – will have ceramic CCell coils

    I've had 5 Minifits (keep losing them) shortest pod life was 3 weeks. Longest 5 weeks. Been through +-8 pods so far.

    Juice is 50/50 clear/slightly yellow.

    Nice salts 30mg or Freebase 14mg.

    I'm not the kind of person who stretches a coils life. The first sign of burn and the pod gets tossed.

    Other pod systems I've used:

    Sourin Air - first pod went strong for a month. All other pods 3-5 days.

    Exceed Edge - 2 weeks per coil

    Aspire Breeze - 2 weeks on 0.6ohm coil, 3 weeks on 1.0ohm coil

    Minifit gets my vote on coil lifespan, but almost all the other devices are more satisfying for me.

    Looks good but I'm worried about the lack of stockists (support) in SA, particularly CT.

    So, how is it to refill and rewick? Easy? Cos I like easy

    Although i must be truthful after a tank or two flavour is a bit muted and the mesh coil gunkedim still trying to figure if there is a way to clean it, seeing that you can't dry burn

    Same coil since new. Over a year and the coil is replaceable but noting is wrong with it this far. Flavor is still good.

    Just replaced the coil after a tobacco juice. It seems the tobacco juice made the coil burn out after gunking it.

    Was on light coloured fruity juices.nvc trinity, icee lychee etc.had some salts in there(light coloured) before i filled it with havanna nightz.
    I wonder if i didnt spoil it by saying the coil lasted that long.
    Good thing is the coil itself is replaceable and rebuildable.

    Yeah, you've managed to get beyond excellent lifespan with that coil head.

    I need to try out ICEE Lychee. Sounds like a juice I'd like. Its a One Shot right? And is it 50/50?
