Why Choose Temperature Control?
One of the most common issues that customers encounter is the experience of a burnt taste from their e-liquid. This result is not actually from the e-liquid itself, but rather from the atomizer (or coil) in their tank needing to be replaced. Inevitably coils will not last forever. However one can unintentionally shorten the life of a coil by accidentally setting a device to the wrong wattage setting, and therefore burning it out from too much heat (resulting in dry hits and burnt wicks). This can often come unexpectedly... so if you don't have your back up coil on-hand, it's going to be a long day.
This is where temperature control comes into play.
Temperature Control technology limits the temperature that coils are heated up to. Devices using this technology do not actually use any thermostat or temperature sensor, but instead rely on changes in coil resistance (as the coil is heated up). When a specific resistance change is determined, the device will adjust, restrict, or cut off the power to the coil. This prevents the coil from overheating and burning the wick, thus preventing an undesirable taste from the vapor. The technology also allows for the user to fine tune both the temperature of the vapor they intake as well as the flavor.
When a device is set to temperature control mode (most offer variable wattage mode as well), the coils used are made of either Titanium or Nickel. These coils can be made by the user. Howevernow that tanks such as the Horizon Arctic, Sense Herakles, and Kanger Subtanks offer user friendly NI-200 (Nickel) replacement coils... it makes Temperature Control extremely attractive due to convenience. The temperature control option has not only changed the art of vaping, it has also changed the taste. You will find that if you change the flavor of your e-liquid, you may also want to fine-tune the temperature. By raising or lowering the heat delivered to your coil, you can optimize the flavor, effectively finding your preferred sweet spot.
It is important to know that when using a device that offers the option of both TRUE temperature control and variable wattage, a specific coil must be used for each mode. For example, the Evic VT (pictured above) set to temperature control uses NI-200 coils, and when it is switched to variable wattage mode, the traditional Kanthal coils (that most users are more familiar with) are to be used. This is because the NI-200 Nickel coils do not recognize resistance like Kanthal coils, instead recognizing the temperature your device is dialed in to. That said, other devices such as the Smok M80 utilize a scaled down/simpler version of temperature control mode as well (called JOULE mode). This eliminates the need for nickel or titanium coils, but offers some flexibility with temperature thru the use of standard kanthal/steel coils.
