These are replacement bottom coils that are made for the SmokTech bottom coil tanks and clearomizers. Bottom coil tanks and clearomizers provide a nice warm vapor, with a superb clean flavor, and reduced wicking issues. This is due to the bottom coil design. These coils vape great and are versatile because they work with all Smok Tech bottom coil tanks and clearomizers including but not limited to the ARO and Pyrex ARO, the Tumbler, the Trophy tank, the RBC, the NBC and the PBC.
Ribbon wire simply means flat. Flat wire has more surface area, making it easier to cover your wick and has a greater surface area to heat liquid, giving you larger amounts of vapor. Another appeal to ribbon wire is that there is also less chance of hot spots arising on the coil.
Please Note: these coils are not compatible with other bottom coil tanks made by manufacturers other than Smok Tech. All items are single coil. 1.5 Ohm coils may not work with all devices because of their low resistance.

Everyone is right, I dont understand it because they look identical but the BC that come with a new tank works waaaaaaaay longer than the replacements. Im very tempted to learn how to renew them myself. So much so i've been saving my old ones. Ive got a big zippie bag full of my cleaned used bottom coils.
I have found that boiling them and letting them dry completely gives them new life, but even shorter life span than before. Maybe get one good tank after i've cleaned them. The trouble doesn't seem worth it for the decent price.
I have just looked at my order history with madvape and it seems I average 1 bottom coil a week, by the end of that week im blue in the face trying to draw from it to get a decent hit. In reality I could totally change it every other day if I had all the bottom coils in all the land. Alas, I made this change for it to be less expensive than smoking and if I make them stretch and limit myself to 4 ml of juice a day, it is.
Anyways, go with 2.4 if you have a mechanical mod. I wish someone had just spelled that out for me before I tested them all...so this is me thinking im helpful. (Posted on 4/14/2015)

Remove the stem from the coil by gently but firmly rocking back and forth with upward pressure. Once removed use some tweezers and remove the upper(flavor) wick strands and set aside.
With the coil attached to your power device, pulse the power button on and off for just a few seconds each. You will want to watch the coil as you do this. You will notice that when you start the coil will be black. As you pulse smoke will start to rise. This is the "gunk" that is built up on the coil burning off.
Continue the pules until you see the coil start to glow red and the wick turn white. You can now reassemble the coil and it will perform as good as new. This operation only takes a few minutes once you have done it a few times.
I can get a month out of a coil now, sometimes even longer. Don't throw them away when performance slows down. Just renew them and save money. I like saving money. And also as stated earlier concerning leaks. Just do like the man said and use an old rubber seal turned upside down over the new rubber stem seal to stop the leaks. Works like a charm!
