    based on my experience of wrapping gennys and RDAs yes, yes they do. 4 loose wraps will be higher that 4 tight ones
    amount saved by not smoking: $lots
    amount spent on vaping: $not enough

    Rebuilding coils safely

It said it was 1.2 Ohms which is around what I vape at so I went ahead & put it on a mod to heat & compress it into a micro coil. All went fine but after doing this the Ohms ended up being .95. Even though I'm an old bloke I don't mind feeling young with a bit of sub ohming so I'm using it in my Rose clone.
    What I want to ask is does a loosely wrapped coil have higher Ohm readings than the same coil compressed to a micro coil?
    The current will take the quickest route. If they are not compressed, the current needs to go along each wrap, but when compressed, it acts like 1 big wrap. Equalling less ohms.

    My ohm meter is doing the dance from 3.4ohm before firing, and drops to 1.8ohm after firing.
    Is this bcoz of loose bottom 510 pin connection?
    Thanks to ECIG, Quit since 2013

    Could be a number of things, mainly depending on what build you have. My guess is that your coils arn't tight enough in the post holes (where your coil connects to your atty).

    HI ALL... GREAT messages above ,question Does any one use a Digital multimeter to check the resistance prior to firing in the sub..

    I do some electronics at home here [Not on Vape gear but resistance is resistance,!,, so gauge of wire plus length should determine the end resistance ..Of course the temperature of the wire will also effect the resistance,[ie] temp of the liguid it is Immersed in etc..
    I have just started to vape ,& I bought replacement coils for now but I will get into rebuilding later,,
    CHEERS BARRY..
    Hi,life is too short,SO DO NOT WAIT TO SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL,STRIDE DOWN THERE AND LIGHT THE DAMN THING YOURSELF..

    For me an ohms tester/meter (most average multimeters wont be sensitive enough anyways) is irrelevant, as the mod has the final say in what it detects the ohms of your coil to be.

    An ohm meter can say 0.6 or 0.67, but on my mod, what it reads is not just the coil resistance, but the mods resistance too...your ohm meter (or multimeter) isnt going to do that

    My main mod reads to thousandths of an ohm, something most ohms testers wont do anyways, way more accurate

    If you do have an ohm meter, you can use it to at least check the coil, and then confirm the mods reading, but the ohm meter reading is just a ballpark figure
