So, I like this thing. 1300mah-Dial-A-Volt. Now, question, what is the best set up for this monster-- 2 ohm single coil. 1.5 dual coil??? I have no idea what to do with this fancy thing. I want it at peak performance, so please help me out!
Can't wait to see all the responses,
Check that out. I haven't gotten a chance to look at it yet, but whatever carto provides a higher voltage will be the better one to use.
Keaton, the link RTE sends you to is a great technical break down of how which cartos will give the best life and performance. I use the single coil 3.0ohm cart in my tank with the Dial-A-Volt and love the vapor and flavor at 4.8V.
Keaton....you've probably heard this a thousand times....but...it's all subjective...try the wow carts and the cool carts...try the sc 1.5 and the 3.0...and which ever YOU like best is the RIGHT one...congrats on your dial-a-volt, you are going to LOVE IT!!!

Ha ha! Where do I get all the money for this?? Thanks for the help. I think, if I've read correctly, that 2 Ohm SC is better for a range of voltage. So, Ohm means resistance, so the lower the Ohm the higher the heat, the more vapor, etc?? I also have seen it stated that the SC carts work the best with higher voltage devices, and that the DC's came out for lower voltage devices to get the production of the higher voltage devices? So SC's for big voltage such as the Dial a Volt, then DC's for lower voltage such as the Stick batts and Ego? Let me know if this is roughly correct. Sorry for all the Q's, I'm trying to make the most educated purchases possible. You guys are great!
Keaton sir yes and no. SC and DC cartos while similar are very different from each other and how voltage affects them. With SC cartos they are the original design of cartomizers. As the technology of ecigs progressed (better battery cells, better ic's, etc.) they were able to lower the ohms on cartos. This led to more vapor and throat hit at the cost of flavor profile. Things were fine at 2.0ohms and above, but they found with 1.5-1.7ohm SC cartos the flavor was muted heavily, and anything over 3.7v would lead to carto burning or juice scorching issues. This is how the dual coil was born, it's two medium to high ohm coils (3.0-5.0 ohms) working together as one. This translates to the throat hit of the low ohm SC cartos, with the flavor profile of the medium-high ohm SC cartos. Because of this set up they handle more voltage better than their SC counter parts, it's why you'll see some juices only being able to handle 10.2w in a SC, but can go to 13.5w in a DC set up. With the DAV while the SC cartos will give you more voltage range, you also won't be able to use that higher voltage range on every juice with a 2.0 ohm SC carto. If you want the full voltage range while at the same time being able to use it on every juice, go with the 3.0ohm SC cartos.
Think of it in terms of cars, you can buy one that goes 190mph, but that doesn't mean you can go 190mph.
