I made the mistake of thinking that I could vape with the sub-ohm coils and that I would be happy; well for me, it is a bit of a mixed bag. I find that when I vape an e-juice that has nicotine in it I get around 1-2 days of vaping from the coil. My perspective on this is that the tradeoff is not a good one since 17.75 AUD will get me 5-7 days of vaping then add the cost of the juice. For me, at that level of turn over I might as well be smoking roll your own again. However, I recently ordered a juice (Kringle's Curse) with 0mg of nicotine and I used it with the sub-ohm coil and so far it has lasted for about a month so that is good news (kinda), but it demonstrates that vaping with nicotine stuffs the coils. Maybe Halo should investigate this; anyway I replenished my coils with 1.2 ohms and they are awesome. Well, not quite as good as the sub-ohm since the vapor production from the sub-ohm coil is fantastic and the 1.2 & 1.5-ohm coils can't even be compared to the sub-ohms. I guess the coil comes down to the user, I would prefer to vape with the sub-ohm, but I am not yet ready to give nicotine away completely. However, on the flip side of that coin with the reduced performance (vapor production) with the 1.2 & 1.5 ohms coils, I end up reaching for a ciggy, which defeats the purpose of me starting to vape. Maybe I need to upgrade to a different device! Anyway, that is my two cents on the topic.
These are great when you get one that is properly working. At least 2 out of 5 in a pack are already burnt tasting. I try to see if they'll settle in somehow, but it never stops tasting burnt, forcing me to discard it and try another one. What a rip off. So you're not really getting 5 when you buy the pack. It's more 2 or 3. They work pretty well otherwise. They don't have a consistent burn out time. Some last 2 weeks and others have lasted up to a month.
Even after I prime the coil, it will still have a burnt taste. I have primed it by dropping the e-liquid in the pockets until it soaks it all up and can’t anymore. I have even left it to marinate in the e-liquid for 12 hours and sometimes that doesn’t even help. The coil that comes with the starter pack is always the best one. Buying the coils separately is a hit or miss. I recommend buying more coils than you need cause they are ALWAYS OUT OF STOCK. You literally have to suffer by reusing old coils cause you can’t buy new ones when needed. Weeks at a time they are out of stock sometimes. Terrible.
I only use Halo juice and I find these coils very unreliable. Yes, I am following instructions to properly prime a new coil, and I never let the tank go less than 1/4 full -- yet 3 out of 5 of the coils in the pack are either defective right from the start or burn out in a day. When I get a good one, it will last 7-10 days-- but that's a rare occurrence. The other issue is they are often out of stock, and the website gives no indication about then they might be back in stock.
I'm new to vaping with replacement coils and dealing with resistance and ohms or whatever, so I don't have the knowledge to truly rate the coils beyond my experience. I only got 4 good days out of a coil, and I'd expected them to last much longer. However, maybe this is standard for a heavy vaper to need a new coil every few days. I can only compare to my other vape pen from Kanger, a top tank evidence, whose coils last a good 7-10 days, but they are a different style of coil. So without knowing the ins and outs of resistance and ohms and such, I can only guess 4 days isn't so great to have to replace a coil. Especially when excise tax and shipping makes the price rather high, at least for me. As a result, I've sadly given up on Halo until the excise taxes are removed from every single item, making a $12 item cost $17. Wish Halo products were sold in brick & mortar stores if they can't abolish the excise taxes.
