Ohms Vs Watts, The Difference
So I have somewhat of a verdict on different ages of coils, how they work, and their affectivity. But I want to have a little whinge here for a moment before I talk about the Aspire Cleito 120 VS The GeekVape Zeus Z1.
I love that mods nowadays are basically tiny laptop power supplies. 200W, 42A, 8V, my Aegis X could start a small bike maybe. With that, I love that Tanks like the Cleito 120 exist that take that wattage and use it somewhat efficiently. However, if you have high wattage your coil heats differently compared to if it were high resistance. It heats at one end first, then back through the coil, rather than the whole coil heating uniformly.
With that, let me comment on the main difference in design between the 120 and the Z1. The 120 is built to be a heatsink, where the Z1 is built for high airflow.
With the Cleito, its coil is significantly larger. It doesn’t have as much airflow due to the top spout being so small, but it makes up for the low draw in wattage, heat stability, and that it has 3 intakes rather than 2. You can partially make this better with mesh coils that limit the 120 to 75 watts, but then you just have a 4.5ml Cleito Max and those kinda suck anyways.
The Z1 on the other hand is built to get as much air in and out as efficiently as possible. Its mesh coil has high resistance, higher than the cleito mesh coil, and gets hot NOW. With it being a tiny coil, and the juice ports being 2 tiny holes, you only need to worry about air.
The Z1 is designed in such a way to not spill, with air tubes going from top to bottom, sealed from any contact to the center chamber or coil. I want to call this internal airflow as the air is guided by ducts. The Cleito I will categorize as external airflow, as rather than ducting you’re just dumping air right into the coil and hoping for the best.
Because of these differences, you get 2 different results. Both of these are meant for clouds, however I will comment that the Z1 has better flavor. The downside though is the Z1 can burn up easily and quickly, even with good air in. The cleito however is built to handle that heat, and actually takes into consideration that to get a good cloud with a high watt low res coil the juice will need to be warm all the time. Thats why the whole body is Stainless Steel, it picks up heat easier and dumps it just as fast.
So the differences between high watt and high resistance is high watt you get big clouds but you have to let it warm up, high res you get all the good results you want but with quick to burn coils.
I like the cleito a lot more than the zeus personally.
