    So far I have tried the eGo ONE Mega with both Ti and Ni coils. It's pretty meh. However, I got my Ni coils in for the UD Zephyrus tank and these are a big improvement. They are dual coil .14 ohms and they are a much better vape than the eGo ONE. I have the mod set at 60 watts and 550 degrees and this thing is actually pushing 50+ watts to keep them at the right temp, unlike the eGo coils where it runs up to 30+ watts then hits the TC limit and drops down to 10-15 watts. The flavor and temperature of the vape is vastly improved. This would actually be a viable option for me vaping. I am really impressed with this setup.
    Here is a video I shot of the screen in action on these Zephyrus Ni coils. It's pretty amazing.

    Unlike my dripper TC days, it's nice that it continued to vaporize the entire button press. It's weird to feel the vapor being produced and then it just stop when TC is hit.

    Another busy week on tap. I'll break out the Smok TC coils this weekend.

    At some point I will put these two videos together in a new video where I post my thoughts on temp control. However, at the moment you can just watch them in succession and get the picture. Here is the same tank on the same mod with the same settings. Difference? Out of juice.



    And this is what is nice, or in my opinion a but gimmicky, about temp control. Notice the mod kicked way down to keep from burning my wicks. It did it's job well too. After recording this, I headed into the kitchen and filled the tank and it instantly went back to performing like in the first video.

    That's the thing about temp control. If you're getting burnt hits, you're doing something wrong. The mod can't really "fix" that for you. It can only prevent it. While the mod was keeping me from burning my wicks, the vape on it was terrible. Very little vapor production and flavor. The mod prevented me from destroying the coils, but only filling the tank could return me to an enjoyable vape. I could, of course, look at the tank and see it needed to be filled, so had this not been a TC mod I would have simply filled the tank before firing it.

    Temp control does have it's advantages in that, had I not been paying attention, this device would have definitely saved my coil. I think though, for the more experienced vaper and the higher quality devices that are available today, it is an unnecessary feature.
