How long do dual coil cartomizers last?
« on: December 31, 2011, 06:01:28 AM »
I bought the 3 pack back in November time and have been rotating them, just wonder how long they last or how will I know if they need replacing?

Which Dual Coils? The 510 XL DC's or the Tornado Mega DC's?

2 of my last 3 mega dual coil cartos are still going strong after 10 weeks, the other one ( which I vape a LOT) is still going but its starting to get hard to draw on now and the vapour is defiantly dropping off.
I reckon that's pretty dam good going  8)

I've only used one of the Mega DC's so far, but it's had about 30ml of juice through it and still puffing well.

How do the DC mega perform? Sill debating on trying them. Are you using on 3.7 device or high volt?

Standard voltage and they are vape monsters. SD and Tornado I have used mine on, works well on both. I was getting ready to break some more out from stock when the chance to test the eGo-C came up.

I agree, I love the mega DC on a tornado, Excellent throat hit, plenty of vape, and easily lasts all day on 1 fill

I've been using these as my main PV for about 3 months.  They tend to vary on how long they last.  Some lasted me 2 months, others only a week or two.  Of course this depends on how much fluid you pump through it a day and other factors.

When these things start to go you'll notice a lack of performance, and many times you can visually see that the fiber mesh on the inside is loosening, maybe falling apart.  The fiber can also get burnt, making the flavor taste bad. Some of these come out of the factory with loosely packed fiber, and I've noticed these don't work great from the get go.

Since these things tend to fade gradually, it can be tough to tell if they are starting to perform poorly, or if you're just going crazy.  When I'm feeling that the cart isn't performing as it should, I usually prepare a fresh one and compare, and if there isn't much difference i table the new one until the next time I think it's going bad.

If I had to guess, putting 2-3 ml/day through one will last me roughly 2 weeks. It will still work, but performance will start to degrade.

Yes.  and to add to this.  when you crack open a new carto you can really tell how under-performing the previous was.  sometimes we just don't want to let go.  :'(












Help wanted.  Need assistant to refill my cartos and charge my batteries must be willing to work for eliquid wages.
