Has anyone had issues with with the Geekvape Z .2 And the .4 coils?

Last few months I have go through so many coils and before the boxes has been labeled New I would get a week to as much as a month mount of them.

I am going to have to buy something different. I have 2 of these and going through coils every day to 2 days. I only run 34 to 35 watts on the .4 45 to 50.

Both the .2 and .4 both burn at the bars not at the mesh part.

I don't have that tank. That sounds horrible :(
Did it ever work right or have the coils always been this way?
35 watts shouldn't be frying coils
How about the juice?
Are you using something really thick and/or sweet?

No they have generally been great tanks and coils. They have updated the coils and now have NEW printed on them. They have changed something in the coils.
I have been using the same vapetasia killer Kustard for years. I sometimes grab something different for a week or so to change it up but always go back.

Is it possible that you could be getting fake coils?
I'm not sure on these coils but there are companies that make clone (fake) coils where the box looks legit and everything.
Have you switched up the place you have been getting your coils from?

I have only bought my coils from the local shop. I get them about the same price as I would online.

If the coils were lasting you before and the only change is the coils have this "new" written on them then I think you are correct. The new coils must be made of some kind of inferior materials.

Have you looked into any different tanks?

Bit late to this party, switched to tapatalk and loathe it, anyhow.
This is interesting, and concerning as I recently purchased 12 packets of the .4 coils.
I have not tried one yet but will today. Like you the coils have been stellar for such little coils and last well.
After reading your post I did some searching and have seen numerous complaints about the new ones online.
I had no idea they made a change in the mesh. I just checked a New one out compared to the old and see the mesh is very different. The New are a tighter honeycomb construction and the old wider spaced oblong shape sections.
If these turn out like yours then iv wasted $170. Dirty too because I have 4 tanks!
I read about dry hits with these New ones too. I to date have never had a dry hit on the older ones.
Ill let you know how I go on these New ones. Fingers crossed.

DAMN. Those new coils look inferior in quality. Big time.

Hi. So have one in and its vaping ok. Not sure I can pick much difference flavour production wise. The wattage settings are very different though. The New pack rates them 10 watts lower for the recommend settings. 60 to 70 the old and 50 to 60 the New. But to get the same vapour and flavour I get with the old set at 58w im getting the same with the new on just 40w. When I go up to the mid point with the New at 55w the flavour starts muting a bit on a long draw. At 40 it stays constant all the way through. To be honest thats how I found the old ones to be at the mid 60w setting. Vaped better below the recommended settings.
Now what I didnt realise was the tank I got the misses a couple of weeks ago had a New .4 in it. When I set it up for her I did the usual and started it low on 30w. After several goes I raise it a bit. When I got to 40w I thought "thats odd it tastes ok already" I went up a bit more to the 50s and got that flavour drop so left it at 40 for her. I told her "I think this coils just an oddy but it tastes ok, let me know when you think the flavour goes and ill change it. I dont think it will last long though". She ended up putting 150 + ml through it before it went. Which was today and thats when I saw it was the New one. Thats the tank iv been trying today. I never used hers other than setting it up for her.
If the others last that long with my sweet diy ill be happy enough.
Will see.

Mine were not burning on the mesh part. Mine all got really dark where the posts are at the ends of the mesh. I have also notice that my goto juice vapetasia killer kustard has changed and much more sweet than it used to be. This may have done this as well

Ok. Thanks for getting back on this. Im still going to keep updating how these are going as I get how different they are. I do get also how bad batches of coils come out. Yrs ago I gad a horror run on Inokkin Crios coils as well was Aspire Cleitos. I was convinced the Aspire were fake as when I went back to the shop I got them from he was very sheepish when pushed and refunded me. The Crios I believe were real Inokkin but a bad batch.
Im not sure whats happening with these Geeks but ill keep posting how they go here on this thread for the next couple of months each time my misses needs a coil change and I do. I still have 8 packs of the older ones but ill make sure I replace all coils with the new over that time. I make DIY and use 3 drops of Cap Super Sweet per 30 ml juice. I like it sweet.
But I will keep this thread updated with my use.
Good luck Shamelin and here is hoping we both end up with a good outcome as the Zeus setup is probably to date the best and most consistent tank/coil combo iv had vaping.
Cheers mate. đź‘Ť

Ok an update.
Me and the misses have been using the New .4 coils.
My misses vapes much more than me and after her first New .4 which lasted good she put 140ml through the next one. I kept checking the flavour now n then and it to me and her gave out at 140ml. I reckon for such a small coil that was great. She liked it at 45w. Thats below Geeks recommended level but to me even when I used the originals I thought they vaped better below to recommended level. So thats about equal in my opinion.
Mine that I put in when I did hers iv vaped 70 ml and the flavour has not changed or dropped a bit. Im using it at 50w. We both do long draws between 2 to 3 seconds. Im expecting mine will give out around 90 to 100 ml.
So as im seeing we personally have no complaints with these New coils. No dry hits or issues.
Right now any doubts I had have been layed to rest.
I get that sometimes there can be bad batches of coils as I had in the past with Crios coils and Cleito coils. So with the OP here I understand that happens.
But for me these are as consistent and at least as good no issues as the original Zeus coils. đź‘Ť

I think I figured out what the deal was. I even bought a new tank Crown 5 and seemed to have the same issue. The new Z coils don’t last as long at the originals did but what was causing my issue I think was the juice. I have been using Vapetasia Killer Kustard for a while now and though it seemed more sweet. I have asked another person that likes and used the same jiuce and he mentioned that he thought the change formulas.
After I bought the Crown I decided to get some house juice from a friend BM store and he made some vanilla custard and some blue raspberry not quite the same but still good and not as sweet. Both the Crown and the Z lasted well over 120ml so far with each of the flavors.

Anyone vape the Vapetasia Killer Kustard

Ah, thats good news.
Me and the misses are still using the Z's and Zeus tank as our mains and are happy with how they are going.
I mix my own and using them with near clear and some darker mixes am not seeing any perceivable difference in life span.
I give the new ones the thumbs up. The taste is the same. No less. Better life span as they say? Maybe if you put up with flavour drop, which I dont and swap them out around the same time as I did the originals but my misses puts up with that longer than I do and she seems to see them last a bit longer.
Cheers.
