When purchasing E cig coil heads, we are often facing with two choices regarding coil quantity, i.e. single coil and dual coils.
Many are wonder which to choose between them and what are their pros and cons. Let us take this chance to elaborate on this issue.
Criteria Single coil dual coil
Lower Battery Consumption √ X
Easier to build √ X
Cooler vape √ X
Less e-juice consumption √ X
Vapor temperature X √
Flavor intensity X √
Easier to get into sub-ohm territory X √
Vapor density X √
Throat hit X √
There is only one coil in contact with the e-liquid in single coil E-cigarette set up, thus there is less E-liquid consumption. Single coil E-cig runs at a lower power level, thus the battery can be used longer before each recharge.
Two coils working together in dual coil E-cigarette makes it produce more vapor in same time, so as to the vapor density and flavor intensity. Also as dual coils E-cigarette usually works with a higher level of power, it brings more throat hit or lung inhale.
Both Single coil and dual coils have their pros and cons. In a word, if you prefer the first 5 things in your vaping experience, you may consider go with a single coil set up. While if the last three things are your pursuit, you may go with dual coil set up.
