    I decided I wanted to quit smoking and after trying a couple of cheap e cigs over the last couple of years I decided to get something decent and really give it a go. Bought myself an Ikkon 220, I need some help with the settings please.
    Had a blast on it this evening and nearly blew my head off, what settings should I be using for plenty of vapour but also leaving the flesh on my throat? I watched a 30 tutorial with a nice Scottish fellow but I don't understand all the terminology.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, I apologise in advance for being dense.

    The lower the power/watts number the cooler the vape. Too high and you can burn your wicking in your coil and then it tastes horrible and that coil/wick is toast. Prime/wet your coils when installing them with a few drops of juice on the inside. A dry coil will burn even at low watts.
    find the watts that work best for you and do not give you too hot or burned hits.

    I have put a few drops on the coil, it has three coils so I did them all. On the tutorial I watched and in the instructions it refers to a setting for stainless steel, nickel etc, I don't understand what these settings are for and if I should alter them? At present I have it on 70w with the air opening wide open. Should I look at reducing that? I'm also using 12% nicotine, is that too much?

    Nickel is strictly for Temp control, SS can be used for TC and Power Mode/Watts, because of your lack of learning curve I recommend you have the mod set for watts. It's all subjective, start low and work up until you get the flavor and vape you like, because vaping can be intense, I recommend 6mg nic and possibly 3mg.

    Like others said, start low and work your way up. You can also try adjusting airflow until you get the best flavor
