this review is mostly for the 0.5 ohm ceramic SS316L coil, part No. HEC406-MELO-COIL-0.5CER
it's an incredible coil, though it does use a fiber wicking system to saturate the porous ceramic cylinder with SS316 coil inside, you don't receive any of the burnt taste that comes with the ECML Ceramic, which gave me nothing but trouble and should get one star. the stock coils that come with the eLeaf iStick Pico 75W kit are passable. workhorse coil assemblies. i prefer the 0.5 ohm, with the 75W kit in VW mode in the supplied MELO 3 MINI tank, it works for most juices, and using sir control and wattage control, can make clouds or enjoy a MTL experience. the kanthal coils do tend to sputter a lot, especially at higher wattages with ample airflow, and little splats of e-juice hit your tongue and that's quite unpleasant.
I've yet to try the 0.15 Ni200, but have one and will update this if possible when it's been put through the paces. the quarter ohm notch coil i've heard good things about, i have one of those, too, and the same applies. they havent been tested yet because the EC kanthal coils last forever, and I'd had but one eLeaf tank at the time. I've also completely fallen in love with the 0.5 ohm ceramic, and have withheld testing until a compatible MELO tank arrives, because one iStick Pico will likely always have a ceramic installed in it.
I'm quite impressed by eLeaf's engineering, and their manufacture has been beyond reproach so far. for the price, they make an excellent lineup of mods, coils and tanks that'd pretty much satisfy most all vapor users.
Also of note is Hoosier e-cig's shipping. From Indiana to the Mid-Atlantic is always within three days, usually two. All of my orders have been accurate, dispatched the same day, and arrived via USPS Parcel Select within 48 hours of acceptance by the courier, so kudos to you, Hoosier, for your fair pricing, and very fast processing and shipping, as well as above average communication.
ok my rant is over here. get the 0.5 ceramics, you'll not be disappointed.
