    Hey guys i have a Smok cloudbeast on a smok 220w alien. I am using T10 coils but have used the 8s and had this issue as well. While vaping the slots where you can see the cotton through the glass will turn black, then eventually dicipate. When changing coils they are FULL of black gunk im using max VG is that what it is? i'm running about 130w which is recommended for this coil. Any help?

    Wtf I have never seen coils that bad lol.

    At that wattage + a juice with sweetener in it = short coil lifespan.

    High vg is not the problem. The best thing to do would be to get cleaner eliquid. Sweetener, desserts, coffee, chocolate can ruin a coil quick.

    I dunno man, that looks like it's got a lot of life left in it still. Good for at least another week or so, I'd say.

    Bah ya still got a couple days on that one.

    But yeah OP what @Mykreign said, sweeter juice = shorter coil life. The VG ain't really an issue unless you're getting dry hits. Another thing is smok coils ain't exactly work horses. They are beagles that you put 80 lbs on it's back, send it out for the newspaper and expect to come back.

    What brand of juice are you using? Another reason why I don't like subohm tanks. When you change a coil and see what you've been vaping on for the last week... kinda gross.

    WTF MAN!!! HAHAHA

    Really though, not just VG but darker or sweeter flavors can gunk faster, sometimes wayyyy faster...like super sweet custards, caramel, coffee, chocolate...etc

    My 200 watt Beast Box (Raptor chip) does that to everything.
    Soaked cotton burns like fuel.

    :tldr: That's hysterical @ej1024 ! I told someone else, it's the sugar...Duh. Especially at high temps. That's my 2 cents.

    Man, that damned crusty build is worse than a marshmallow at a campfire on a branch left there overnight. Yeah. Go ahead, eat it.

    FWIW, I found that DIY eliminates the coil gore by more than half. Even with the same flavor as commercial, its much cleaner. No idea why.

    I rewick between tanks, the GF uses the TFV12 premades, and I don't know how she can vape that stuff after a few days.

    I take a vape of hers, and can name every juice she's had in the tank for the last week.

    That was from this morning at my clinic. I swear these people flock to me in heards. These vape shops around here have told someone like this to buy a new unit.. not Coils a unit. Either there stupid, they prey on new vapers, or both. Likely both. I had one shop say they offered a coiler, got there, and he hands me tweezers. Enough is enough. I have been out of work for a while, am fighting for my disability, trying to get into college I need a part time job. Per disability it's ok to work 20 hours... I want to start integrating into society..

    I would kill to have these guys positions. There not knowledgeable at all. They all use smok aliens, and baby beasts. Ugh the NEWB take over.

    Could be true, I got some free commercial juices the other day, they had too much flavoring (sweetener and custard especially) it's easier to use lower % flavoring in DIY
