    Hi everyone,

    I just got my first vaporizer about three weeks ago or so. Bought a cheap one that was easily available here in my little town, a Vapur SMRT G. I've since ordered a Kangertech Evod, since the Vapur requires changing out the entire clearomizer to change the coil (at $10 a pop).

    In the meantime though - I started with the "Classic" juice, which was great, and my clearomizer/coil lasted about 10 days. But then I replaced the clearo, and bought a "Coffee" flavoured juice (also made by Vapur).

    The taste was harsh initially, and I wondered if I got a bad clearo. Also, the draw got stiffer and stiffer. After only a few days I replaced the clearo. That one was good for a couple of days before it, too, was clogged (trying to vape was giving me a headache from having to pull on it so hard), and the vapor itself was very weak.

    Finally, I got a third clearo, and a different juice, a Cherry one which was much lighter in colour (the coffee one was very dark). So far I haven't had any clogging issues, but it has only been a day.

    So my real question: Do some juices just kill coils or clog clearomizers? And how would I know how to avoid them? I've got my Evod's coming, which I'm really looking forward to, and I don't want to gunk them up.

    Thanks for any help!

    You are mostly correct with your findings. Darker liquids generally clog faster that lighter liquids. But, not always the case. I believe it has to do with flavour base. The reason for all of this is plain science. The components - PG, VG, flavouring & liquid nicotine all vapourize at different temperatures. For the most part, it's the flavourants that don't fully vapourize and create a residue that eventually builds up.

    Evods use a Kanger Evod / Kanger Protank single coil. These are a good choice. They are a bit outdated - maybe 2 years old but continue to sell, because they work pretty well. You will get more life out of something newer - like an Aspire Nautilus or Kanger Aerotank but not to worry. Take your time and experience different things - you'll find what works best for you.
