I haven't dabbled too much on the different coils. In fact this is my first vape with coils. I had gotten the 1.5 and I love them. They burn a little hotter, but then bring out the flavor and it's amazing. I currently use cookie karma and shamrock, and these coils really bring out the flavors a lot better than the 0.5 ones they give you in the pack.

Coils are long lasting (have used for 30+ days) under proper use by keeping coils wet by refilling before tank completely empty.
This is the resistance that comes with the original kit. This is my first vaping device with changeable parts so i am just learning. I find the 0.75 comparable to the experience of drawing on a cigarette. I use about 2/3 of a triton tank a day or less and these coils last me about 3 weeks. I also like to keep extra tanks (thus extra coils) so I can change flavors at different times of day. Change these regularly to get a good head of steam (if you find your device getting hotter than usual, change your coil!). Also, to insure go get a good, fresh flavor (if you smell or taste burning, chances are it is time to change the coil).
I have 4 Triton II vape pens and each of them has a problem with internal leaking. This is noticeable when I remove the coil and look below at the battery connection. This becomes wet and requires me to constantly remove the coil and wipe the connector area with a q-tip. I know when it's time to do this because the device begins producing poor vapor, burnt tasting hits, and gurgling.
I contacted Halo regarding this and they ignore the problem. They first responded to my inquiry, yet after I explained to them that this was not an isolated problem with just one device, they never followed back up with me. When they did reply initially, they tried blaming the problem on user error or my not using Halo juices.
I find it pretty ridiculous that they expect their customers to use only Halo juices, especially when their juices suck. I also prefer more organic ingredients than what they offer. I also prefer my choice in vaping juice that is free of propylin glycol. I use a 100% VG blend that is similar viscosity to their juices. The liquid I use is not too thick and not too runny, so I can't imagine it being the culprit. I think the problem is with their design... possibly a crappy rubber o-ring.
I could be wrong, but I think this problem also occurred even when I was using Halo juices strictly. I also don't recall ever seeing a noticeable disclaimer when ordering the Triton II, which mentioned anywhere that non Halo juices were required to prevent this problem. All I know is that having to clean the connection liberally every 5 minutes does not make for an enjoyable or convenient experience.
I love how the Triton II hit. I love the price. I love the compact size of the device, and I love the flavor production. I just hate shoddy craftsmanship, poor customer service, misleading of customers, and times when replacement coils are out of stock.
If they want to blame my use of non Halo juices on the internal leaking problem, what they can't blame me on is the fact all 4 of my Triton II batteries are basically useless after just 4 months or so of use. I literally have to recharge them every 10 minutes because that's all the power they have left in them. Again... crappy quality. There is no excuse. There is no way this is an isolated case because like I said, this is not just 1 battery... it's all 4.
Yet, do you see a disclaimer to buyers where it says anywhere that their batteries will crap the bed after just a few short months of use. I use rechargeable batteries all the time for various other devices and they only lose a very small amount of charge capabilities over time. Which means Halo is knowingly selling a faulty product. Instead of admitting that they invested in a poorly designed battery (or coil for that matter), they blame it on user error. Please tell me how it's my fault that the batteries are trash? They had the balls to ask me if I was using proper charging cords. Umm yeah... the ones that came with the device!
I try to be understanding to the fact that these are relatively low cost products, but this idea that everything should be cheap and throw away irritates me. Why not create a quality product and stand by it? Wouldn't it make more sense to charge a couple extra dollars and avoid reviews like this one? Wouldn't it make sense to keep a customer who would recommend your company to others rather than trying to mislead and ignore? I don't get it.
