    Hi. Pretty new to vaping, and a non-smoker. I have a Smok with at V8 Baby M Core. I run it at about 60 watts. After about 800 puffs it seems to get rather harsh. I was just wondering if this is typical and what I should expect. Thanks much!

    I had a baby smok tank but not sure of the coils. I did try 3-4 different ones. I ran mine well under the recommended watts and got 700-1300 puffs before I had to change them. Are you running any nicotine? You said you are a non smoker so I hope not.

    Thanks for the answer. Yeah, I am playing around with nicotine levels and flavors. But it's true that many, many smokers have told be to stay away from that.

    In my Baby Beast I run the X4 Coils and get an average of 5,000 puffs on a coil firing 25-30 Watts maximum.

    A lot depends on flavor choice. If it is a sweater flavor the coil is not going to last as long. Nicotine is going to make the hit have a harsher flavor as well. Wish my coils lasted that long steveS45. That is why I started making mine. I can change cotton out between 500-1000 puffs and not waste a coil. Burn off the gunk and re wick it.

    Thanks. I'm playing around with wattage. I'm at the high-end of the recommended wattage, but I can surmise that a lower wattage would tend to burn the coil less.
