Watts = Power = Heat...
...and Heat is what creates vapor...
I think some of the confusion comes from thinking that more heat is better! Which I'm finding out isn't always the case, depending on the flavor, juice, etc.
In a nutshell TD, I wouldn't be overly concerned. I say that, because I'm not. I vape now, I totally enjoy it, and if it never gets any better than it is today, I'll be completely ok with that :)
I think I'm at a point in my journey though (and it seems like you're there as well), where I'm moving quickly from the intermediate stages of vaping to a more advanced understanding. I'm beginning to understand subtleties in flavor, and fullness of vapor, and how various hardware components interact with each of those, and how that one set of conditions works better in certain scenarios than others for me. Remember sometimes having an analog, it just didn't taste great, but you smoked it anyway? Part of the beauty of vaping for me is being able to identify those types of conditions and trying something different to enhance the experience. I've actually made a hobby out of vaping that I just can't get enough of. Some people won't. And that's ok too :)
Anyway, I think if you're happy with what you have now, just stick with what you've got any you'll do fine. You don't have to change a thing if its working for you :D
Thanks, Rob. I'm going to take your advice. Life is good with vaping. I'll still be reading and learning.

Volts and watts are the same thing in the vaping world TDTyler sir. VV devices raise the wattage by increasing the voltage which in turns increases the amperage (cartos are fixed resistance). VW increases the wattage by raising the voltage which in turns increases the amperage. The carto's resistance is what determines what the final wattage will be in both cases so not really a versus thing, same outcome just different labels.
KR batteries are kr808 based batts, in other words everything Vapor4Life sells primarily.
There's no answer to what's the optimum setting is, because the only person who can decide what's optimum to them is the individual themselves. The vaping nirvana formula comes into play. With hardware it comes down to three things- airflow, battery life, and power output. A person who puts the most important emphasis on the draw won't care as much for the other two, so even if you give them a pv with a 20 watt output and 60000mah battery won't be as happy as they would be with a 120mah 3.2v battery with a perfect draw. With juice it's flavor, throat hit, and vapor production. Someone who gets the most satisfaction from throat hit won't be happy with a juice that tastes great and produces the most vapor if it has no throat hit. Somewhere within those 3 factors for juice and hardware you'll find vaping nirvana, only it's different for every person.
Keep in mind sir, the only person who can decide what's the best flavor is you. There are people who swear by flavors I don't like, and people who hate the ones I love, doesn't make any of the flavors bad, just means we have different tastes.... :)
I just got a replacement tank carto cuz i scorched one and couldn't figure out why it wasn't performing like the other tanks.
Then i realized what it was.
i got 2.0 ohm cartos to test them out, Vapor4Life tanks come with 1.5 ohm cartos standard.
Very noticeable drop in vapor production and that lovely juice sizzling noise.
The blueberry does taste delicious though.
. . .And now the Variable Voltage devices begin to make a little sense to me.
I only have an Ego and an OMG All Day so i'm stuck with what they put out.
My test was very educational, however, i learned that for fixed voltage (is that the term) batteries I would definitely choose 1.5 ohm cartos and don't see how a 3.0 could be enjoyable at all.
Are sealed Tank Cartos returnable for different ohms?
Now i have one here and three on their way to me.
I'm considering a purchase. I must confess I haven't completely wrapped my brain around the cartomizer resistance/Volts/Amps/Watts concept. That's why I'm asking this question before I purchase.
I've been using dual coil cartos. I'm going to purchase 2.0 ohm single coil cartomizers. Using the 4.2 volt output of OMG AD battery with the 2.0 ohm SC Carto, will the "fire" be hotter or cooler? (If the fire is hotter, I could use my DAV manual and dial back the output thus increasing battery life, no?)
If you are now reaching up with both hands to begin tearing out wads of your own hair, I'm sorry!!! Someone please just tell me to forget it.
I'm laughing. I hope you are, too.
TD Tim, iffn it were me, I'd use 1.5's in the OMG AD, and get some 2.0's for the DAV and "dial-to-taste" :)
Sounds like you're on the right track :)
I found Morandir's message in the thread referenced. THANK YOU, RoccoV sir. The info was helpful. Cooler if I do what I said in my message.
