    You sure it isn't 34awg & not 24awg?

    34G seems to me like it would be in that range of ohms.

    Is the 24awg thinner or thicker than the 28awg from VK?

    I have 28 (0.32/0.30) from vape atomizer mesh and 28awg spool from vapeking and the resistance is identical.

    Sounds like you may have got the wrong thing somehow (perhaps they sent out the wrong wire), sounds like 32awg based on your resistance.

    ok now i know im not crazy, just did a 4 wrap, non micro coil, just normal, of 25.5awg and its still at 1.1ohms, still low, but 4 wraps of 28 gets me 0.6-0.9.

    Test an inch length with a mutimeter, or alternatively run an inch link between two post on an atty without wrapping it around anything. It worked for me when I got the wrong gauge sent. At least then you'll know 100%.
