    Hi, im a beginner and planning to buy Eleaf Istick Pico 75W. Can someone please let me know if Eleaf EC Head Atomizer Coil 0.3ohm will be good enough for temperature control or the best coil that can be used for temperature control?
    I want thick clouds and good juice.
    (I have heard Stainless Steel coils are better as they dont produce harmfull chemicals so if any SS coil)

    Unless it specifies the coil is SS, nickel, or titanium, it will not work in temp control. SS works in both wattage and temp control.

    IMHO, temp control is not all that neat. Stick to wattage mode.

    The linked coils are not for temp control mode. Only wattage mode.

    IMO, TC provides the smoothest most consistent vape. I prefer SS coils over all the rest. Just remember wattage controls the ramp up time. Temp controls how cool or hot you like your vape. Once you get it dialed in its a fantastic vape.

    Variety's the very spice of life, that gives it all it's flavour.

    Everybody is different. You might like TC. You might not. You wont know until you try it. Me, I don't care for it. You can easily get thick clouds and flavor with wattage mode, with the right tank and coils.

    Agree. I did not even bother with TC for a long time but, once I did, I found that it was just a smoother more consistent vape. For me anyway. I only use SS. Never messed with Ni.

    Being a single battery at 70w I wouldn't expect much battery life but you can look into the Samsung 30Q or the Sony VTC5A batteries..Both should be ok at 70 watts,.

    With Temp Control im finding that I like it...My first ever experience was with a Ni200 coil for an OBS T-VCT tank...Immediately I could taste the coil and wasn't impressed...My next mod purchase led me to an Hohm Slice in which I tried TC using kanthal and was blown away with all the set up features to tailor it to your liking....Now my next adventure with TC will be with SS 316L wire when I receive it in the mail and im sure ill like that as well...TC can be a bad experience if you don't understand it or know how to set it up properly as I learned my first time using it...What ive found with my kanthal experience so far is I don't have to wait for a ramp up time..So as soon as I press that fire button my vape is where I like it immediately with both taste and warmth...Not, hit the button and wait for it to get warm enough for flavor then let off before I burn all my juice out and get a nasty vape...Or, turn the power up so high I can only take a 3 to 4 second hit if that before it tastes burnt or my wick goes dry...Now I set power as high as I want it to get the ramp up time for instant gratification, then the wonderful programming of the chip backs it off to the temp I choose which brings out the sweet spot of flavoring...Just my personal experience with it so far and its going to get even better here soon for me with SS wire.

    45 watts seems a bit high for .5 coil and most likely why the tank is getting hot..25 to 35 watts sounds more like the range a .5 coil would work properly...75 watts with a .5 coil im not so sure would be an enjoyable vape on any level but if you think your tank was hot at 45 watts then why would you go to 75 watts?
